Ordering in is the new going out; ditch the sarnie at your desk and get involved.
Are you a hungry hipster? Or a team feeder? Here’s five cool (and totally good for you) lunch delivery services that are changing the way people spend their precious hour…
If you’re… all about the fad
You need… The Detox Kitchen
The 5:2 is so 2014, but where to next? Whether you’re leaning towards the protein thing or all over the green stuff, try The Detox Kitchen’s delicious pressed juices and pearl barley salads. Gwynnie’s a fan. And your workmates will be super impressed.
From 29.99 per day, Detoxkitchen.co.uk

If you’re… an eco-warrior
You need… Karma Cans
A London-based lunch delivery service that uses only organic and locally sourced produce. It prides itself on sustainability (even its tiffin tin containers are reusable, and can be collected at a later date). Its menu switches up each week – think duck hirata buns and tofu platters. Who says comfort food can’t be healthy?
Meals are £8, karmacans.co.uk

If you’re… into your greens
You need… Bonapeti
Freshly prepared plant-based dishes from London’s brightest new chefs delivered to straight to your office? Check. Healthy updates on some classic (not so healthy) dishes? Check. Kohlrabi lasagna with spiced tomato preserve with pumkin seed gremolata to scatter on top – yes please.
Mains £9.50, Bonapeti.com

Black Friday 2021
If you’re… the team feeder
You need… Office Pantry
Bake so many brownies for your colleagues they’re pestering you to enter The Great British Bake Off? Give yourself a break and order in from this gourmet tuck shop of locally sourced goodies. The homemade honeycomb flapjacks are to die for.
£35 per box, Officepantry.co.uk
If you’re… a hungry hipster
You need… Peardrop
A fully paid-up member of the sustainable brigade, but wish your eco-friendly food were a little more Instagrammable? This is one serious lunchbox – think honey balsamic pulled-pork buns with slaw, apple and crackling – that looks (and tastes) as good as it is for the planet.
From £6, Peardroplondon.com
