It almost sounds like a contradiction at first: enhancing personal health by way of an app that delivers food to your door and barely asks you to get off the couch. However, endorsing a sedentary lifestyle is not the point–UberEATS is really more about saving you time (and car mileage) while exposing you to options you might have missed when left to your own devices. How you use that extra time is up to you. After all, you can place an UberEATS order while running on a treadmill just as easily as you could while sitting on the couch.
Likewise, what you order is also entirely in your hands. Sure, you can satisfy those late night munchies by getting a double beef patty with extra cheese and bacon and a side of onion rings, or you can go in the other direction entirely and finally try that raw health food restaurant your freakishly fit mates won’t shut up about. By the way, in case you didn’t get the memo: being healthy is really popular right now.
Nonetheless, we’re not here to tell you what to eat or how to eat it, but should you be among the growing legion of urban warriors who like to save time and calories in equal measure, consider going to healthy route when placing your next order on UberEATS. To help give you some ideas, here are the top 5 health food trends in 2017:
Superfood Breakfast Bowls – Take a healthy “kitchen sink” approach to the most important meal of the day by assembling a bunch of nutritious ingredients together in one generous helping. With superfood breakfast bowls, you can combine foods like fruit, yogurt, oatmeal and even brown rice to deliver your body a rewarding (and tasty) injection of the vitamins and minerals it craves.
Superfood Salads – If you’re someone who loves variety, don’t just stop at breakfast. Take that kitchen sink approach to your lunch break and create a symphony of deliciousness using ingredients like kale, dried cranberries, quinoa, and whatever else you want to throw in. You’ll walk away full and satisfied.
Poke – Hawaii’s best-kept secret (okay, they never really kept it a secret) is out and people are simply raving about poke, a raw fish salad that’s typically made using yellowfish tuna, soy sauce, and then various other ingredients depending on where you order it. If only all healthy food could taste this good!
Superfood Treats – Food stores everywhere have stocked their shelves with superfood treats, which cram all those body boosting nutrients into snack form. It’s the perfect way to stay satisfied and healthy throughout the day.
Healthy Elixirs – That’s right folks, chugging and gulping is no longer just for weekend binge drinking marathons. Work those gag reflexes (and make up for the aforementioned binge drinking) during the workday by funnelling down a healthy juice or elixir made entirely of delectable, nutritious ingredients like fruit, vegetables, ginger, lemon, almond milk and flax seed. Your cells and organs will thank you.
What’s so convenient about something like UberEATS is that it saves you the trouble of going out and buying a zillion different ingredients just to stay in shape. Here’s a list of the healthiest meals (broken down by city) placed on UberEATS in 2017:
