Meal deliveries have developed somewhat of a stigma about them because they’re supposedly bad for you. However, if you opt for a healthy food provider like POW Food, there are actually a lot of benefits to having your meals delivered. For example, I bet you didn’t consider that it’s better for the environment!
Here are three key benefits of home meal deliveries:
1. It Saves Time and Money
One of the most obvious benefits of having meals delivered straight to your door is that it saves you the time it would take to cook instead. If you’re a parent or work particularly long and hard shifts, you’ll know how it feels to be exhausted but still need to cook.
Thankfully, not only do meal deliveries allow you to spend more time doing what you enjoy but they’re also a cheaper option than cooking these dishes yourself. Rather than buying a lot of quirky ingredients that you may not use again, delivering the meal avoids this added cost.
2. You Get a More Varied Diet
It can be easy to get stuck in a cycle of frozen pizza and pasta but as we’ve been told from a young age it’s extremely important to have a balanced diet. This means eating all food groups in their appropriate proportions. Especially if you have meals delivered from a company that focuses on healthy eating, like POW Food, this is a really healthy option.
Not only this, but you can experience lots of different cuisines. At POW Food, you could choose between classic British dishes like cottage pie and roast chicken but you can also experiment with chicken tikka masala, vegan amazonian cacao and three-bean chilli, and Mediterranean falafel! This variety is part of the reason we were proud to receive the 2021 Greater London Enterprise Award!
3. It’s Better for the Environment
An often overlooked benefit is that meal deliveries are actually good for the environment, according to a recent University of Michigan study. The alternative to meal deliveries is driving to the shops and buying lots of individually wrapped ingredients, which are put into plastic bags and then driven back home.
Where meal deliveries come into their own is that this industry buys ingredients in bulk, reducing the amount of plastic used, and it removes the travel distance involved in shopping for ingredients.
