Sometimes the busy days pile up and before you know it,
you haven’t seen the inside of your kitchen in a week. If this
happens more than you’d like to admit, Beijing has a glut
of health-centric meal delivery services new and old that
help take a bit of the decision-making and scheduling out of
Glo Kitchen + Fitness
Specialising in Western-style café fare, and offering a few
favourites found on their restaurant menu, Glo offers two menu
options. The first, Glo Fresh (from 588RMB for five days) is packed
with dishes full of veggies. The second, Glo Fit (from 748RMB for
five days), incorporates enough protein and healthy carbs for active
individuals or those looking to build some muscle in the gym. Both
are filled with snacks and enough variation that won’t leave you
hungry or bored. To order, find Glo on WeChat (glokitchenfitness).
Sourced from local farms, Tribe Nutrition helps you swap sugar
and processed foods for leaner and greener offerings that are
flexible and can be adapted to individual dietary restrictions.
Seven different meal plans are available – we tried the Fresh Lite
and were pleased to still find hearty comfort foods like beef tagine
and chicken curry. Orders should be placed two days in advance
and Tribe will deliver to you six days per week, meaning cheat day
Saturdays are still definitely a thing. To order, visit Tribe's website.
The app Yota is Chinese-only but is straightforward to use,
regardless of language ability. Meal options are designed for
those hitting the gym, vegetarians, or folks just looking to be a bit
healthier. On the days we try, meals consist of six small-serving
sides like veggie salads, roasted chicken, marinated mushrooms
and scoop of multi-grain rice. Each bento box-style serving arrives
close to mealtimes meaning they arrive hot and fresh. While you
can book a meal a day for a week (from 245RMB) or month (from
900RMB) at a time, you can also book up to two hours before you
want a meal delivered. Download Yota from the app store. Individual meals from 38RMB including delivery.
