If you're looking for the best recipe box and meal delivery services, you've come to the right place. When you simply don't fancy going to the supermarket or want a special at home dinner to look forward to, replace your weekend treats with luxe restaurant kits instead.

Whether you love a takeaway app or not, there's no denying that the rise in ordering food from your phone to your door has turned our trusty electronic devices into our own personal fridges. However, what happens when you have to wait up to an hour or more for your order, or you can't quite manage to eat it all, and it goes to waste? Not to mention that takeaways are often not ideal for healthy eating.

Hello recipe boxes, restaurant kits, and fresh food delivery. These takeaway alternatives can give you the same rush as hearing your doorbell ring for your pizza, and they're just as speedy (if not speedier) than the traditional couch Friday night dinner. They're also surprisingly more cost-effective than swiping individual orders on your screen.

But how do they work, exactly? Well, most of these companies offer recipe boxes packed with everything you need to make a YUMMY meal, including pre-weighed ingredients, spices, herbs and detailed instructions. Basically, they provide you with all the resources you need to make cooking from scratch refreshingly easy.

If you're already a don in the kitchen, though, you can still get deliveries of fresh produce like vegetables, milk, cheese, yoghurt, granola, bread and more brought straight to your door. Organic farms such as Abel & Cole and Riverford are offering pre-selected boxes, or you can design your own. How fun!

And don't worry about the extra miles you're clocking, loads of food delivery companies are actually more sustainable than supermarkets. By sending food straight from the source to your door, they cut out the middleman and nearly always use less plastic.
