Healthy Express

Nutritious dinner delivery services sprout up just in time for your January willpower reboot.

The brainchild of chefs from Google and the Fat Duck, along with Lyft leader Gagan Biyani, Sprig speeds compostably wrapped, locally sourced meals to your door. Order from the app, and $10 hot dishes like chicken with figs and cauliflower latkes should arrive in 20 minutes or less.  

Far from a juice cleanse, Nona Lim’s detox includes three square meals a day with optional snacks—all of it free of common allergens such as gluten, dairy, soy, and shellfish. Order one week’s meals (starting from $355) or more in January, and you’ll get a nutritionist-run webinar and 50 percent off a cooking class.

For time-deprived cooks, Tomato Sherpa delivers all the goods for a healthy meal ($7.65 to $12), along with cooking instructions and nutritional info. Each week starts with four new options, such as whitefish en papillote with baby broccoli and orzo. Order to your office, and delivery is free.
