You want to cook a healthy meal for dinner, right? But it’s hard to find the time, energy and inspiration? These companies aim to take the effort out of it, delivering healthy, homemade-style meals either whole or broken down in to fresh ingredients with recipes to throw together yourself.

Dinner Ladies
A wide range of homemade-style meals, cooked from scratch, from the two women behind Dinner Ladies. The team cooks up new specials each week, including dishes such as Massaman curry; Syrian chicken with honey, lemon and ginger; and salmon fishcakes. Menu staples each week include lasagne Thai chicken curry and both meaty and vegetarian cottage pies. You can even order your pantry staples through Dinner Ladies: Bangalow bacon, Holbrook Paddock eggs and Pepe Saya cultured unsalted butter.

Delivers to the east, north, south, inner west and hills District of Sydney.

Hello Fresh
Just because you don’t have any ideas, doesn’t mean you don’t want to cook. Hello Fresh gives you all the ingredients and recipes you need to make tasty and well-balanced meals. An omnivore or a vegetarian box cooks three-to-five meals for up to six people, with dishes including eggplant and pistachio cous cous; oregano chicken with bean and olive salad; and basil pesto haloumi pizza. A fruit box and a juice box – with apples, ginger, kale, beetroots and seasonal produce – is also available.

Delivers all across Sydney.

Youfoodz offers healthy meals such as a roasted macadamia barramundi; Indian butter chicken; and a Mexican chilli beef with beans. Vegetarian options are available as well as many weekly plans (from the paleo-inspired to the just plain easy, with dishes you don’t even need to heat up).

The Floury Baker
The Floury Baker was founded by Anna Simamora, ex-employee at Neil Perry’s Rockpool (and baker of Ben Affleck’s and Jennifer Garner’s wedding cake). Styled as an online provision store, The Floury Baker provides homemade-style dinners, featuring a large range of meals such as aromatic curries (try beef rendang or Sri Lankan chicken curry), soups (fresh prawn laska; peasant bean soup), pies (zucchini, eggplant, capsicum and chickpea; steak and mushroom) and braised meats. You can even order Simamora’s A-list cakes.

That’s what My Food Bag’s Gourmet Bag subscription service delivers, providing you with all the produce and recipes you need to create four dinners for two people. Master Chef New Zealand winner Nadia Lim is behind many of the recipes that could include chipotle-charred chicken with Mexican rice and sour cream or miso and mirin soy glazed salmon with sesame soba noodles.
