Over the years many meal prep and meal kit delivery services have sprung up to provide healthier convenience food. As the creator of YouRCooK, I have observed how healthy meal delivery services effectively attract customers and loyal fans.

Wholesome2Go are a healthy meal delivery company based in Malibu, California and serve the Los Angeles and Orange County areas. For a list of the zip codes, please visit here. The company is owned and managed by chef James Barry and his wife Magaret who is a nutritional therapist.

Eat Organix is not only an organic and gluten free Los Angeles meal prep delivery service which aims to provide tasty, flavor-filled meals using fresh and locally sourced ingredient, but they also offer nutritional consulting to help you achieve and maintain a healthy lifestyle.

Eat Organix has a sustainable, green and eco-friendly approach to operating their business.  For example, their containers are bio-degradable, menus and business cards are made from either plants or recycled paper and their ice packs and bags are non-toxic and reusable.

The company was setup by Tammy Nguyen and Faby Niswonger. Co-Founder,Tammy moved from Dallas, Texas to Los Angeles and is a trained chef having graduated from Le Cordon Bleu. She also specializes in holistic nutrition. Tammy has a love and passion for fitness and healthy eating and so she founded Eat Organix with her best friend Faby.

In 2016 the worldwide market for food delivery was an estimated €83 billion, or one percent of the total food market and four percent of food sold through restaurants and fast-food chains according to Mckinsey Research.

In the UK, the takeaway sector was worth an estimated £9 billion of which £5.5 billion is through the takeaway delivery sector, according to JustEat and Morgan Stanley analysts estimate that the $30 billion US online food delivery sector could potentially reach $210 billion

Takeout Kit is a Playa Vista, California recipe box subscription service which delivers to most US States, Hawaii and Alaska including to APO overseas addresses. Takeout Kit was founded by CEO Rachael Lake and to find out why, please watch the video above.

Their mission is create two month shelf life global-inspired kits which provide you with the opportunity to create tasty cuisine infused with tantalizing flavours.

Takeout Kit is different from your standard recipe box delivery service because the ingredients in Takeout Kit's meal kit boxes have a shelf life of up to two months. Whereas with the likes of Blue Apron, Plated, and HelloFresh, you have to use the ingredients within a few days before they go stale and you can end up wasting food unnecessarily.

What is the secret to eternal youth? Of course it's not vampire's blood as Buffy, Angel, True Blood and The Vampires Diaries etc would have you believe and I was a big fan of Angel and Buffy as a teenager growing up in the late 90s. Can you imagine if you lived for hundreds of years and didn't age a day, living century after century? It's hard to visualise for some of us.

There are projects under way, around the globe that are working to bring such a vision to fruition. Silicon Valley is reportedly investing billions into biotech firms that are seeking to extend the life of humans considerably past the average human lifespan. The longest human life span known/confirmed was 122 years.
