What Are The Benefits Of Fresh Food Delivery?

Home delivery meals have really taken off in Australia. You might have heard your friends bragging about their expanded cooking repertoire or how convenient getting food delivery is. People order food online for so many reasons, here are five awesome benefits of home delivery meals.

1) Exciting Dinners

Do you ever find yourself repeating the same dinners over and over again? Do you struggle to find the inspiration and time for creative meal planning? Ordering a meal kit is the best way to reinvigorate your weeknight cooking and try out new things. One night you might find yourself trying Haloumi and Charred Capsicum Burgers and the next you'll be cooking Three Cheese Spaghetti with Mint and Peas. It doesn't matter if you are not a Masterchef cooking whiz or a complete novice, meal deliveries are designed for anyone who loves food and the joy of a home-cooked meal.

2) Eat Healthier

Getting a fresh food delivery is a great way to eat healthier. You're less likely to buy junk food or order unhealthy takeaways if you have a fridge full of fresh ingredients waiting for you at home. Healthy food delivery services like Marley Spoon have teams of nutritionists supporting their in-house chefs. The nutritional information and calories are always available so you'll know exactly what goodness you are getting. Marley Spoon offers a range of diet-specific recipes, including keto, vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free. If you are watching your weight, the pre-portioned ingredients make a fresh food delivery a great way to count calories and manage portion sizes.

3) The Convenience Factor

For singles, couples and families alike, Marley Spoon can transform the way you cook!

4) Total Flexibility

Home delivery meals like Marley Spoon are completely flexible. You choose when and where you want your food delivered, you can skip any week that doesn't work for you, or pause and restart your subscription at any time. You don't need to worry about the exact timings to receive your box: the insulated boxes are chilled so the food keeps fresh when you're not home. Address changes, dietary restrictions, family growth, holiday breaks, Marley Spoon is ready for anything.

5) Save Money

Getting a meal delivery will save you money! The average Australian household throws out ⅕ of their groceries, that equates to $3,800 per household of waste every year. The pre-portioned ingredients sent in a food delivery mean zero food waste. You'll no longer need to buy that whole bottle of fish sauce or entire bag of noodles for that one stir fry. Your pantry will be less cluttered too!
