Buy This: Three sources for delicious meals and ingredients, delivered to your door

Farmers & Fishermen Purveyors

Okay. You love to cook, but sometimes you crave a delicious meal prepared by someone else. Or you want the best ingredients, but you don’t want to go searching for them. Three companies are here to serve you with dozens of options so you can eat just what you want, when you want it, all delivered to your door.

Farmers & Fishermen Purveyors 

Scrolling through the offerings of new home delivery service Farmers & Fishermen Purveyors, it’s hard to stop your mouth from watering. First up are the impeccably fresh fish such as Dover sole and wild striped bass. Then the smoked fish and colossal lump crab meat, cuts of prime beef including filets and ribeyes, pork from Adam Cox Farms in Florence, Alabama, lamb from Colorado and even Wagyu and wild game. And it’s not just luxurious foods but everyday staples like ground beef and bacon. All restaurant quality, all available for free delivery to your door in fully recyclable packaging. For those moments when you’re not in the mood to cook, there are prepared side dishes from venerable Atlanta caterer Proof of the Pudding including the Potato Au Gratin and Balsamic Brussels Sprouts we tried. Even the “sprout hater” among our testers ate two servings. Ready-to-heat falling-off-the-bone tender baby back ribs and Patak beef franks and sausages are available for your Fourth of July cookout. Not content with just proteins and side dishes, founder Kirk Halpern will send you eggs, boxes of fruit or vegetables, and from the Philanthropic Pantry section, Purposeful Pecans with sales benefiting Atlanta Meals on Wheels. We bet your list of things to order will be as long as ours.

Order by 10 p.m. for free next day delivery in the metro Atlanta area. Call 770-441-1100 or order online at farmersandfishermen.com/. Delivery available Monday through Saturday. Orders placed Saturday delivered Monday. 

Eat Clean Bro

Eat Clean Bro 

We’re here to tell you that healthy meals - lean protein, lots of vegetables and where there are carbs, they’re complex carbs like brown rice penne pasta - are available for delivery to your door. Eat Clean Bro has come to Atlanta with a choice of more than 50 meals ranging from breakfast burritos to grilled steak, all delicious, all low calorie. Delivery is available Sunday, Monday and Thursday. Order before midnight and you’ll have your freshly prepared food the next day. We tried some comfort food favorites like Swedish meatballs (served with yummy creamed spinach instead of noodles - yes, reduced fat creamed spinach but you could never tell), some seafood specials like the salmon burger poke bowl with kohlrabi slaw in a nutty toasted sesame oil dressing and our favorite, the Thai peanut noodles with a grilled Cajun-spiced chicken breast. We found every meal was enough for two to share, or to enjoy for dinner with leftovers for lunch. Everyone who tried these remarked how great it was to be able to eat clean food that didn’t break the bank.

Meals range from $8.50 to $12.99 per portion. Delivery is free in 15 metro Atlanta counties. Delivery also available in the remainder of Georgia as well as Alabama, Tennessee, North and South Carolina and Florida. Order at eatcleanbro.com/

Snap Kitchen

Snap Kitchen 

Austin-based Snap Kitchen is now offering fresh ready-to-eat meals with free delivery to us in Atlanta. We tried a range of customer favorites from Chicken Piccata (with fresh spinach that wilts just enough when you heat the meal) to Veggie Taco Hash with its delicious avocado sauce. There are breakfast options, meals the kids might enjoy like Chicken Tenders with Turnip Mash and our new favorite, Roasted Veggies with Cucumber Tahini. We love that each meal is labeled on its side, so when the meals are stacked in the refrigerator you can easily identify which is which. No shuffling through packages. Most meals are less than 400 calories. You can order just once, or subscribe to a meal plan for 5 percent off each meal. Dietitians have created plans including low carb, keto-friendly, Whole30, paleo, high protein, vegetarian and more. There is no gluten in any meal, no preservatives and the meats are raised without antibiotics or added hormones.

Meal delivery plans start at $69.99 for six menu items or $114.99 for 12 meals and include delivery. Choose a meal box plan and save $60 off your first three weeks. Learn more at healthy.snapkitchen.com/healthyhabits/
