10 Online Shops That Offer Convenient and Healthy Meal Plans

Living solo or lazy to cook for yourself? You can now plan your meals with ease by ordering from these online shops.

While cooking is a fun experience and eating your creation is just as satisfying, the clean-up after is not. Especially when cooking for one. Look at it this way—prepping and cooking can take minutes or even hours, depending on the dish you make. Eating, maybe about 10 minutes or less if you’re that hungry.

But cleaning up and washing all those pans and plates, wiping up the kitchen, and repeating the same process for lunch and dinner? All this practically eats up a huge chunk of your time!

Such is the struggle when you’re living solo. While juggling school, work, your day-to-day responsibilities, and all the in-betweens while at home, having to think of what to eat next (and making said food) can be difficult. Yes, some can use their weekends to cook big batches of food that will last them for a week, but other people just don’t have the culinary expertise or the time to do all that.

The solution? Delivery meal plans!

With menus that change every week—sometimes even tailor-fit for your dietary preferences—these online stores offer solo portions for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In fact, some even offer snacks in between to keep those cravings at bay! Much like a weekly subscription, all you need to do is pay up, inform them of any allergens or dietary restrictions, and let them handle the cooking and delivery, just like that. It’s super convenient!

Curious? Here’s a list of 10 places to get you started.

10. The Sexy Chef (IG: @thesexychef)

If weight loss is your aim, The Sexy Chef has you covered. Established by Chef Barni and Rachel Alejandro, this delivery service serves up meals that help you boost your immune health, lose weight, manage a medical condition, or simply eat healthy.

Some meal plans under their belt include the Mediterranean Diet—a pescetarian meal plan which focuses on seafood and fiber-rich carbs—and the South Beach Diet, a high protein, low carb diet that uses lean protein and nutritious vegetables to help you manage your weight. And if you’re managing medical conditions like diabetes, Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS), and high cholesterol, they also offer Prescription Diet meal plans.

On the other hand, if you want to personally curate your lineup of dishes, The Sexy Chef also offers an ala carte menu with plant-based and low-carb options.

Bringing together culinary excellence and the nutritious properties of food, Dr. Food is the brainchild of The Aivee Group. In fact, this delivery service offers chef-curated and nutrition-approved meal plans that are made with fresh and premium ingredients to suit your eating lifestyle.

A prescriptive diet program made exclusively for you, these meals are planned by their team of certified nutritionists and dieticians. To start, they require a nutrition and clinic consultation, where they will do an in-body test to assess certain factors, like visceral fat, basal metabolic rate, and the like. These help pinpoint improvements for your diet, which they will monitor every 2 weeks to see your progress.

7. Isabel’s (IG: @isabels.ph)

When retired couple Isabel and Gerry purchased land in Tagaytay last 2011, it served as a culmination of their longtime dream to own a farm with a retirement home. But it was only in 2016 that the owners, with the help of their family, established the food delivery service that would go on to provide healthy meal plans and juices to a health-conscious market. Thus, Isabel’s was born.

With farm-to-table offerings—straight from their family farm—this delivery service proudly showcases healthy, delicious, and carefully prepared meals. In fact, you can personalize your own meal plan or choose from their ready-made weekly salad menus, power bowl meals, and even calorie-counted LoCal meals.

Expect pesticide-free salads, organic meat and seafood, lush greens, and tasteful dressings—all of which come in reusable containers that guarantee freshness.

Place your orders through their website at https://www.isabels.com.ph/ or contact them via SMS and Viber at 0917-652-7341.
