There’s no denying the benefits of home cooking. Not only is it the healthier option, but you save time, money and it gives you a chance to reconnect with food.

While we’d love to cook at home more often, it can be quite tedious at times. Luckily for us, meal kits have become increasingly popular – bridging the gap between eating at home and ordering takeout.

Perfect for busy lifestyles and those who live alone, you can get pre-portioned ingredients, easy recipes and delicious menus delivered straight to your door.

Most food subscription services only cater to two or more people, but you can use it as a chance to get a two-in-one deal and bulk up on meals – or save it for lunch the next day.
