If you're working from home during the COVID-19 crisis you've probably noticed that your productivity has gone through the roof. You're smashing through that to-do list in the time you'd usually spend on the bus, and live-streaming your bootcamp session after pens-down, but have you also noticed you're generally taking fewer breaks from 'the office' in the middle part of your day?

A two-year study showed that when employees work from home, staff tend to take shorter breaks. Perhaps the WFH lifestyle you imagined — eating salads in the sunshine, reading more books at lunch, and having a less stressful transition into dinnertime — hasn't materialised in the way you'd hoped? Just because you're cutting out the travel time doesn't necessarily mean you have more time to prep healthy, appetising meals come 6pm.

Oodee's ten-minute meal packages

Oodee is a meal delivery service that brings you washed, cut and portioned ingredients for nutritious feeds that can be cooked in ten minutes. You don't even need a stocked pantry — every element of the cooking process has been taken care of, and you're sent easy-to-follow recipe cards for each meal. Instead of worrying over which can of soup to crack open next, you could be heating up a couple of plates of crispy salmon with soba noodles, chicken schnitzel with mash and gravy, barbecue chicken pizza, or thai green curry with jasmine rice — all before you sink into another episode of Tiger King on Netflix.

Oodee's main focus is providing healthy, accessible meals to help you spend less time shopping and cooking. It works with local farmers to source RSPCA-approved chicken and Meat Standards Australia suppliers for other proteins, and it delivers daily so you don't have to go hungry when you've been typing till midnight and forgot to feed yourself between stimulants and Skype calls.

Sydneysiders can order their meals by 11:59pm each night and you'll still receive free next-day delivery. The minimum order is three meal packs, and dishes like tofu stir fry with hokkien noodles work out at only $5 per serve.

And if you are heading out to work right now, deliveries are dropped off between 4–8pm each evening in a chilled and insulated box so your meals will remain at the right temperature ready for when you get home.
