Save Time: Meals


For entrepreneurs, their business is imperative to them. Not only is it a source of income but it is a part of themselves that they share with the world.

The passion and that drive that they have for their businesses is essential, however sometimes; as a result, other factors of life can suffer, or be neglected.

As part of our #LiveLife campaign, we are looking at ways you can eliminate certain 'pain points' that take up time within your life. Today we will be looking at meal times, and how you can use certain automated services to save time.

For Snacks

Automate your snack deliveries with Early Bird and Graze snack boxes. You can choose when you want them delivered and have them automatically rendered on those days. Select preferences and get them delivered to work or home.

For Breakfast

Breakfast is a hard one. Unless you live in larger cities such as London, there are little options to get breakfast deliveries. If you are looking for an automated service, The Cereal Cluboffer a subscription service for superfood breakfast cereals. On your first order, they will give you a free Kilner jar so you can have breakfast on the go.

Another option would be to invest in a Nutribullet, or a cheaper alternative the Breville Blend-Active. Both of these options offer ‘to go’ style cups, so there is no washing up- just unscrew and go.

For Lunch

Lunch is a hard one to automate. Look into local cafes to see if they would deliver to you. If they are local, some independent establishments will allow you to email your order through at the start of the week, and they will deliver at the specified time.

For Dinner

More and more food box automated services are becoming available, including Gousto and HelloFresh. Most companies offer a discounted first box so that you can try before you fully commit. Gousto gives a little more of an insight into what you can expect however Hello Fresh has just teamed up with Jamie Oliver to make some tasty collaborations.

But, if like us, you wouldn’t want a whole week's worth of food in your fridge, perhaps your schedule is unpredictable. Simply Cook could be a good option. Choose the meals that you would like to cook and Simply Cook will send you a box with all the spices, sauces and condiments you will need for that dish. They will also attach a shopping list for you, making the shopping list one less thing you need to think about.

For Dinner Parties

Now, unfortunately, this option is only for those of you who live near or in a city. Deliveroo is a food delivery service that hires cyclists and motorcyclists to deliver restaurant meals to your door. Simply type in your postcode and see what is available. Most restaurants will package the food to look presentable, so all you need to do is plate it up!

Have we missed something?

A lot of the options that we have listed require little time and take care of themselves after the initial setup. However, there are a lot of different ideas on Pinterest to inspire bulk preparation. Do you know of a service that we haven’t mentioned? Be sure to Tweet us or get in contact and be sure to use the hashtag: #LiveLife
