What are good meal delivery/meal convenience options?

As the title says. I know Paleokits are there and I've certainly seen some stuff in the past, I'm just curious as to what you may have all tried and/or heard about. It can be snack(y) stuff or entire meal plans (a whole day) or just a simple lunch package type of thing.

It doesn't have to be paleo specifically, but certainly food and nutrition that compliments athletes and training, etc.

Thank you!

Re: What are good meal delivery/meal convenience options?

Are you talking about buying something pre done or making it yourself?

When I'm good I make 4 days of lunches (my worst meal) and Tupperware them.

If I had extra cash I could use www.fitcityfoods.com (wfs) in my area and get a single meal or all my meals made up.

we use these guys at out gym (link sfw):

i don't personally use them since i can't afford the extra cash but everybody that uses them loves their food. i did get a chance to try their food at the ECC this year and it was VERY good.

Thanks Shawn and Snir. Was talking about pre-done. Friends and clients ask. As I've never done it myself, some of them have a bit more $ than time (they are doctors) and I wanted to point them in the right direction.

Re: What are good meal delivery/meal convenience options?

Depending on the area and the demand there could be an opportunity business wise for this.

The folks who run our local one own a restaurant and are avid crossfit folks. The daughter went paleo, saw the need/want from our community and had the resources and skills to get it done.

Now I think 6 or 7 boxes in our town use them, plus a few other globo gyms and they also have it in their restaurant.

Food is pretty good and the price is fair. Honestly if I was single or didn't have 5 kids I would probably use them.

I did their 14 day thing one time and lost 4lbs and about 1.5 inches. Just maintained my 5 day a week workout program and only ate the 3 meals plus snacks provided. Admittedly I would have preferred a little more food but was testing it out.

Re: What are good meal delivery/meal convenience options?

If still interested, I've found personal trainer foods to be pretty decent tasting pre-prepped meals. It's a loooooooot of chicken tho, and very few carbs for post workout stuff, but generally it's not bad.

It's a little pricey but there's regularly groupon discounts for like $100 off, and the garlic butter sauce is great. The meals are 5-7 minutes in the microwave, and good healthy portions (which means small, considering how most people eat).
