Healthy Eating Without the Hassle

Keeping your New Year’s resolutions can be simple with these meal services

From daily deliveries to your front doorstep to a meal-assembly service, these four fresh-food options offer easy ways to keep your diet and lifestyle changes in check.

Conveniently Natural This food service will deliver a week’s worth of organic, vegetarian meals within a 30-mile radius of its Kansas City, Mo., based kitchen.  They have multiple options for meal plans, from individual to family plans, and you can also add on a la carte items.

Success Meals This weight-loss focused service makes their meals fresh daily and delivers to your doorstep by 6 a.m. each day. The meal plans are created based on your caloric requirements and taste preferences. For details and to register for a free one-day trial, visit

PaleoFit This lifestyle program emphasizes real, natural foods featuring lean meats, veggies and fruits. You choose the number of meals per day—from one to four—then collect your week’s meals at one of the nine pick-up locations throughout the metro.

Dream Dinners If making your own healthy food is more appealing, Dream Dinners offers easy-to-follow food-prep workshops. Their January menu features 14 dishes under 450 calories per serving. You place your order online beforehand, turn up at your appointed time to assemble your meals with the staff’s guidance, and then take the meals home to cook at your convenience.
