How would you like to have a personal chef deliver healthy, home cooked meals to your office each day? Farmavore does just this, making the personal chef accessible to just about anyone with meals that cost about the same as your average takeout order or office cafeteria.
I recently had the chance to try this new delivery service in Boston and was impressed by the creativity and quality. Each meal comes packaged in a microwaveable dish (just remove the lid) with heating instructions plus the calorie count and list of ingredients.
I tried two meals, starting with the grilled lamb burger with feta and focaccia and the arugula salad with lemon oregano vinaigrette. The burger was cooked to a perfect medium, and I was surprised how well
it traveled and held up after being warmed in the microwave. It retained
its juicy pink center, and didn't get dried out at all.
I also loved the salad, particularly the dressing! I wish I could buy a bottle of it to keep at home.
My second meal was a chicken tagine with rice and asparagus. This was also excellent, and I loved the sauce with lemon, olives. and fresh herbs.
Meals from Farmavore are available 1-5 times a week, and prices range from $10-$14 depending on how many times you order. They have both a chef and dietician on staff to make sure the meals are tasty and healthy, and the portions are just right (you will be full but not in a food coma). There are vegetarian and non-vegetarian options, and they continuously work to refine their menu based on surveys and feedback. For more information or to try them check out their website.
