I can’t remember the last time I ordered delivery food. If you asked me what it was I had, I couldn’t tell you, it was that long ago. I think it’s because I equate delivered food with food that’s really bad for you, but as I found out this week, it doesn’t have to be.
Tonight, I’m having a Saturday night in after a busy week of not being in. And while I usually love cooking, there is not much food in the house and I’m feeling so completely lazy that I can’t summon up the energy to walk to the local Tesco. This is the perfect delivery food night.
So I logged onto my latest find, Just Eat, which has pretty much every single place in London that delivers food to your door – just enter your address and a list appears. 147 for my area. The hardest decision was how to narrow these down – Nepalese, Lebanese or perhaps something safe like Thai. It was Japanese that won out in the end though, because I’m addicted to it and also because I needed something healthy to equal out my not so healthy week.
But once that order was in, I couldn’t stop there. I knew there was more healthy food out there just waiting to be delivered.
I locked in a weekly Graze box that comes with four healthy, different types of snacks – just something little to stop those cravings. I love being surprised with new snacks each time. See you later predictable and boring 3pm oatcakes.
I’ve also been trying to eat a bit more organically these days so I think it’s time to restart my Abel and Cole deliveries. My first is coming on Monday – a small fruit and vegetable box which will dictate my meals next week. How can I not be healthy now?
And finally one of my favourites, Milk & More, the milkmen that bring milk, and so much more, at the crack of dawn. I love waking up and finding fresh croissants, eggs and bacon at my door step. Now, I truly never have to leave the house ever again.
Well, the food has just arrived. It smells pretty good and it’s the perfect time to start a movie. This is the life.
Challenge Happiness Rating: Completely Full (and happy)
P.S. I was just about to press publish on this post but my friend, Nayan, texted me about this company that has re-invented delivery food, Housebites. Check them out!
Next week’s challenge: Look through old photos. With a friend if possible. If it’s an old friend, you can reminisce (“Oh my god, do you remember when we did that?!”), & if it’s a new friend, you can tell grand stories (“Well, let me tell you about this guy…”).
