Healthy Food Delivery Considerations

With so many healthy food delivery services available, it's often hard to determine which one best matches your needs.

Consider the following:

Dietary Restrictions

If you have special dietary restrictions, such as following a gluten-free, vegetarian or vegan, low-carb, or diabetes diet, keep that in mind when choosing a healthy food delivery service.

With so many options available, find one that meets your and your family's needs.


Variety is important when choosing at-home meal delivery options.

Trial and error is sometimes the best way to find your favorite food delivery service. Online reviews are helpful too.

Check out each healthy food delivery company's online menu options, so you know if there's enough meal variety to meet your long-term needs.

Price Point

Price is perhaps the deciding factor for which type of healthy food delivery service you choose or how often you receive meals.

Make a food budget each month so you feel good about the amount of money you spend on meals.

The most expensive healthy food delivery option isn't always best.

Family Friendliness

Some home-delivered meals are more kid- and family-friendly than others.

If you have young children or picky eaters, choose meals and snacks everyone can enjoy.

Or, pick one healthy food delivery option for yourself and another for your kids.

Weight Management Goals

If weight loss or muscle building is your goal, consider healthy food delivery services that offer high-protein, low-carb, low-calorie, or ketogenic meal options.

Regardless of body composition goals, you're sure to find home-delivered meals that meet your diet and weight management needs.

Other Ways to Stay Healthy When Ordering In

In addition to choosing healthy food delivery services, there are several ways to ensure you meet daily nutritional needs and stay healthy when ordering in:

Eat Fruits or Vegetables at Every Meal

Many children and adults don't consume the recommended amounts of fruits and vegetables regularly.

This can negatively affect energy levels, health, wellness, and weight management goals.

Aim to fill each plate half full of vegetables and the other half with proteins and fiber-rich starches.

Eat about 2-3 servings of fruit daily, and replace sweets with fruit.

Consider Protein Shakes

Protein shakes or smoothies are beneficial for your health for numerous reasons.

Protein helps you feel full and satisfied, which is beneficial for weight loss and healthy weight management.

It's also crucial for muscle-building and keeps your metabolism going strong.

Choose a protein shake between meals to build muscle and curb hunger, or replace meals with protein shakes to achieve a healthy weight.

Develop a Meal Plan

Develop a meal plan and stick with it, whether your goal is weight loss, fat loss, muscle building, or healthy weight maintenance.

Aim to eat about three meals plus two to three healthy snacks daily.

Eat when you feel hungry but avoid constantly grazing throughout the day or eating due to boredom, anxiety, or depression.

Maintain a Strong Social Support Network

Your emotional health is just as important as physical health when it comes to overall health, wellness, and healthy weight management.

Maintain a strong social support network of close friends and family, and recruit them to join you in getting and staying healthy for life.

Schedule in Daily Exercise

Getting exercise daily, or most days of the week, is the best way to boost your mood, build or maintain muscle, burn fat, or lose weight.

Aim to get at least 30 minutes of daily exercise if you can, and combine resistance with aerobic workouts for best results.

Try Fit Father Project workouts specifically designed for busy men.

Take Dietary Supplements for Men

Taking dietary supplements for men is important for numerous reasons.

They can help prevent nutritional deficiencies, maximize energy levels and cognitive function, boost your immune system, and even build muscle mass.

Ask your doctor about taking a multivitamin supplement, probiotics, protein supplements, omega-3 supplements, or immune boosters.

Avoid Keeping Certain Foods in the House

The best way to stay healthy at home, in addition to trying nutritious home-delivered meals, is to stop keeping certain foods in your house
Doing so helps you avoid temptation.

Steer clear of sugary drinks, sweets, baked goods, white bread, regular pasta, other refined grains, regular potato chips, processed meats (bacon, ham, deli meats, hot dogs, etc.), and fried foods whenever possible.

Replace junk food with whole foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grains, fresh organic meats, olive oil, avocados, and other heart-healthy fats.

Choose low-fat dairy foods, plant-based equivalents, or protein shakes.

Opt for water, black coffee, or green tea in place of sugar-sweetened beverages.
