Somedays lifting a spatula can feel harder than squatting a kettlebell. When you can't muster the strength to cook, what should you order?
Coach Henry put together a few tips for ordering takeout and some of our favorite take-out spots in the Upper East Side.
In general, here are some things to look for if you’re searching for healthy takeout.
Mediterranean Food: While it might not necessarily mean your meal is healthy, much of the food at Mediterranean restaurants consists of veggies, healthy fats, and lean proteins.
Salads: It’s hard to go wrong with a bowl of veggies and lean protein.
Vegan and Vegetarian: In general, vegan/vegetarian meals tend to include lots of veggies, fruit and fiber.
Cooking takes time and energy. Meal prep services are gaining popularity, particularly in cities where it’s not very convenient to shop for and cook your own meals.
These services promise chef-made meals delivered straight to your home. Most sites have a menu that you get to choose from, or you can pick a predetermined meal plan that you don’t have to think about.
Meal services are also fairly flexible if you have dietary restrictions. They tend to be vegetarian/vegan-friendly and accommodating if you have allergies.
