FOOD DELIVERIES FOR WHEN YOU WANT A HEALTHY FEED BUT CBF TO COOK

in partnership with

Kick those health goals from the comfort of your couch.

Upkeeping a healthy lifestyle during winter can be a bit of an uphill battle — and we're not just talking about that incline over at Heartbreak Hill. It's cold, it gets dark before the workday is even over, and we're burying our bodies under at least two layers of clothing. However, eating healthily is a habit that is fairly easy to maintain — if you know where to start. Forget the notions of lifeless salads or hours spent in the kitchen though. It's time to explore the world from your sofa. Together with DoorDash, we've put together this list of exciting healthy feeds that you can get delivered right to your front door.

    From one home to another, tantalise your taste buds with the Israeli dishes of Shenkin. The family-run eatery prides itself on its homely charms, stretching from its restaurants to its menu, and you can recreate this vibe right in your living room. The restaurant integrates Middle Eastern and Australian produce and cooking styles, so you can feast on the likes of sabih — grilled eggplant, boiled egg and hummus in a flatbread wrap — and shakshuka. The latter is one of Shenkin’s signature dishes and was perfected after years of experimenting and working with the best chefs in Israel. Why not order it with chorizo or haloumi as a treat, too? We won’t tell.

    Bare Naked Bowls

    Kickstart your day, or enjoy a post-workout energy boost, with Bare Naked Bowls. Fresh and nourishing, the eponymous bowls are packed with açai, yoghurt, smoothies or rice (depending on the bowl you choose) and topped with colourful fruit and veg to fuel you for the day ahead.

    The superfood cafe empire was started in Manly by Josh and Ashley Porteous. The couple is passionate about nutrition and sustainability — all produce is sourced locally and the almond milk is made in-house. And they’re equally passionate about charity work. So, you’ll not only be eating well, but also doing good: one percent of each purchase goes to The International Brothers and Sisters House, a charity that supports orphaned children in developing nations.

    5 Loaves 2 Fish (5L2F to the cool kids) dishes up wholesome breakfasts, lunches and desserts until 4pm each day. You can expect cafe classics with a twist — think scrambled eggs with XO sauce, blue swimmer crab and Korean chilli oil on Brickfields sourdough or corn fritters, with a turmeric kick, served with grilled haloumi, avo, smoked salmon and a poached egg. If you fancy something light and fresh, opt for one of the delectable salads, like the poke bowl with ponzu cured salmon, super grains, heirloom tomatoes and edamame or slow-roasted cauliflower and chickpea bowl with sweet potato tahini. The speciality coffees are praised by diners, so be sure to order one — dining at home means you can even decant it into your favourite mug.

    Great Aunty Three serves up vibrant Vietnamese street food — we’re talking divine rice bowls, steamed buns and Vietnamese favourite, pho. Pronounced ‘fuh’, this flavourful noodle soup packs a punch with nutritious ingredients and high protein content; the Great Aunty Three recipe comes straight from the owner’s grandmother. Banh mi is a firm fan favourite at this corner shop-style cafe, while zingy rice paper rolls and bowls make a great light alternative. Cool off any lingering spice with a refreshing Vietnamese iced coffee, frappe, or even a homemade lemonade.

    Fishbowl

    Forget everything you know about fast food, Fishbowl changed the game. This sushi-salad bar puts the choice in your hands. Pick your bowl base: brown or sushi rice, cabbage or glass noodles. Then, add your protein (salmon, chicken, braised beef, tuna sashimi, miso eggplant or tofu), veg, dressing and toppings. The result is a fresh, crunchy, colourful salad that’ll fill you up and provide you with the nutrients your body needs (or craves) during the winter months. Alternatively, you can choose a tried and tested combination from the set bowl menu. All meat and veg used at Fishbowl are local to Australia — the furthest coming from Tassie.

    From breakfast and brunch to salads and sides, this Darlinghurst cafe offers Aussie dishes with an Indonesian flair. Innovative ingredient combinations elate existing breakfast and brunch classics, like sweet bruschetta (peanut butter, cinnamon, banana and honey) and avocado smash with cherry tomatoes, feta cheese, fresh chilli and zaatar. Come lunchtime, you can indulge in the lively Indonesian flavours of nasi goreng and gin salad (no, not that kind — it’s a traditional Indonesian salad with chicken and spiced grated coconut). A range of vegan and gluten-free options are available, too.
