Heading back to the office is a controversial affair these days: you either love it or hate it.

For many, working in the office means giving up the flexibility of multitasking at work. When it seems like you’ve finally gotten used to cooking freshly made meals in-between calls, you’re now faced with the daily routine of standing in line, waiting to order your meals during peak (lunch) hour.

We completely understand. After all, just the thought of queueing for 20 minutes, in a mask, without air-conditioning, is enough to make us perspire. If you’re looking for a solution, perhaps you’d want to place your trust in a meal prep subscription or two.

This isn’t your regular food delivery: these meals have a strong focus on nutrition so you’ll know exactly what’s being put in your dishes, macros and all. Best of all, you won’t have to go through the dilemma of staring at your phone the entire morning thinking about what’s for lunch.

Read on for the best meal prep subscriptions in town.
