One of the struggles I constantly face is how to do it all. Between working long hours, having events and functions at night and trying to work out almost daily, finding the time to cook a healthy meal is a bit of a pipe dream. But, for ladies in New York, there’s a solution that will satiate on all levels.
I recently came across Provenance Meals, which is a meal-delivery service based in Brooklyn that cooks delicious home-cooked, gluten-free, healthy meals and delivers them to your door. I recently tried Provenance out and was blown away by the quality of the food, how delicious it was and how easy the process was. Added bonus: they work with local farmers, so food is fresh and locally-sourced.
Here’s how it works: you go to their website and can pick from a la carte meal options that range from paleo cranberry muffins for breakfast to steamed monkfish with ginger and garlic for dinner, or you can order their Chef’s Meals box which is a bundle that comes with four entrees, two soups or salads and two breakfasts or snacks for $149.
Every week the menu changes and you can order a delivery for Monday or Wednesday to reheat on your own time. I love the packaging the food arrives in, which comes with an icepack to keep everything fresh.
This past week I tried out a few meals. For breakfast, I had the paleo cranberry muffins and was so pleased with them. They were filling and tasty, but the paleo recipe meant I didn’t have to fret about excess carbs.
For lunch, I had their kale ceasar salad that used nuts instead of croutons, for a rich flavor that was also a nice bit of texture.
For dinner I tried out the beed bourguignon, which was packed with flavor. Their beef is grass-fed and pasture-raised, resulting in a wonderfully tender meal.
For those looking to kickstart their diet, they also offer a detox option. Overall, this is a service I could happily recommend. Perfect for nights when there just isn’t time to cook, and it takes the guilt out of the normal seamless order which could be loaded with carbs, sodium and sugar.
