As much as I love to cook, sometimes my busy schedule requires the assist of a food delivery service to keep me satiated and sane while going about my biz. However, finding the “right” one amid this burgeoning food service category can be a challenge. There are multiple nuances, often subtle, that differentiate one from another, which can make committing to a particular brand daunting.
To help ease and appease, I have at least one tried-and-true recommendation for those who are health-minded but still want to genuinely enjoy the eating experience. A service called Methodology delivers on both fronts, with healthy, restaurant-quality fare.
This wellness-focused subscription service offers ready-to-eat meals, with menus crafted by a team of chefs and nutritionists dedicated to maximizing health benefits while also making the food delicious. So, this is a great solution for those who find themselves too busy to make good, wholesome meals at home—whether every day or intermittently, as needed.
The company’s positioning is interesting and admirable. According to its Web site: “Methodology is self-love using food as medicine. We’re here to help you nourish yourself and heal your body, so you feel your absolute best every day. No more diet food, extreme diets, calorie counting, starvation, deprivation, guilt or stress. Just whole, ultra-nourishing meals designed with your wellness—and taste buds—in mind so that every meal feels like a gift to your body, mind and spirit. It’s time to shift your mindset, think of food as self-love and prioritize loving yourself. Once you do, eating healthy will become a natural, joyful, lasting part of your everyday life.”
Methodology distinguishes itself from other meal services on the market based on five parameters for using food to improve beauty, strength and well-being: (1) Eat food you love; (2) maximize nutrient density; (3) avoid refined and processed ingredients; (4) control your portions; and (5) be consistent. Methodology addresses all five of these concerns and endeavors to make clear that it’s “no ordinary meal delivery service.” It offers clean, ultra-nourishing, personalized meals for people who both love food and want to achieve optimal wellness.
Of course, pricing reflects the premium nature of this food service option with meals starting at $16.99 each for lunch and dinner and $7.99 for breakfast. A small price to pay for truly delicious, real, whole, ultra-nourishing superfood meals that are ready-to-eat and can be reheated in a microwave or on a stove top in less than five minutes—all prepared and also refined sugar, gluten and processed ingredient-free. Grass-fed ghee is the only forms of dairy they currently use. In fact, the company can aptly accommodate specialized diets like Keto, Paleo, Mediterranean, Pescatarian or Vegan. You can check out sample menus online.
So, if you’re looking for an option to help you avoid succumbing to the holiday gluttony—or to recover from all of that F&B-oriented revelry—Methodology would be a satisfying time saver for those who appreciate nourishing, five-minute meals delivered right to the doorstep.
