5 reasons why My Foodie Box is Perth’s best food box

My Foodie Box - WA's best food box

Cook healthy dinners

Variation is key when it comes to balanced eating. Different foods are rich in different nutrients. Therefore, by including a variety of fresh foods in your diet, you naturally give your body the nutrients it needs — no excessive planning needed.

A great way of ensuring a varied diet is by following seasonality. Australia is blessed with year-round fresh, local produce, with new fruits and veggies ripening every month.

My Foodie Box is the meal kit that helps you eat varied. We source fresh, seasonal produce every week and deliver it to your doorstep along with easy-to-follow recipe cards. This way, all you need to do is the fun part: the cooking!

Our Chef and in-house dietitian have planned balanced meals for you, and our local procurement buyer has made sure that only the best ingredients WA has to offer makes it to your dinner plate. This way, you achieve home cooked, healthy dinners full of varied, fresh ingredients without even having to think about it.

WA’s most sustainable food box

No Food Waste 

Domestic food waste is often a result of cooking too much food and not knowing how to use leftovers. It is a result of buying takeaway food instead of using up ingredients in our cupboard, and thirdly, it’s a result of buying more than we can cook before the expiry date.

With My Foodie Box, neither of these are an issue. We source exactly how much is needed, we prepare your fresh produce, and we deliver it to you pre-packed in perfect portions. This means that you no longer end up with half a bag of wobbly carrots, chewy broccoli stalks or sprouting potatoes that you forgot you bought. Instead, you get exactly what you need, you always know how to use it, and no food ends up in the bin.

Cardboard boxes 

All the packaging inside My Foodie Box, that we keep to a bare minimum, is either recycled, composted, or reused. Nothing goes to landfill. And of course, your My Foodie Box is made from recycled materials.

We kindly ask you to return your main box to us when we deliver your next box. This way, we can reuse what is still in perfect condition after sanitation, and make sure that damaged boxes are properly recycled so the cardboard can find a new use.

Save time and avoid the hassle of grocery shopping

Studies* show that the average Australian spends more than 58 hours a year in a supermarket. It is almost 8 days of your annual leave that are spent doing grocery shopping! And that doesn’t include the time spent in the car.

Meal-planning is another headache, between wanting variety, catering for different needs, having fussy kids, and cooking what we know how to.

If you too are time-poor, Perth’s favourite food box will save you all that time, so you can spend it doing what you love.

Get delivered WA produce only

WA fruits and veggies are in high demand, and for good reason. Our WA farms take pride in the high quality of their products.

By buying food grown, farmed, fished and produced in WA, we support local businesses. We believe that a strong community leaves room for growth and for development. Supporting our local businesses creates jobs and boosts our economy.

By buying from WA, we can make sure to only use suppliers that share our visions on free-range farming and sustainable seafood.

Shorter Transportation

Local ingredients minimise the toll our food chain takes on the Earth by limiting the use of fuel. In addition, the shorter transportation results in less food wastage. Throughout a long transportation chain, possibly involving both trucks, boats or planes, a large percentage of once-fresh produce will get crushed or spoiled.

Ensures Variety

When we buy local food, we are affected by the seasons. This means your meal box naturally ensures a varied menu, year-round, packed with ripe produce month after month.

Better Health for You and Your Family

 

Fast food, frozen meals from the supermarket and pre-packed meals can be unhealthy choices. They are packed with saturated fats, excess salt, preservatives and refined sugar.

In addition, portion sizes are often larger than necessary. This can lead to a lot of extra calories (or food waste), without any nutritional benefits.

Instead, cooking the fresh ingredients your favourite meal delivery service at home lets you control exactly what you put in your plate.

By making home cooked meals with fresh veggies, whole grains and lean meats, you significantly reduce calorie content and boost nutritional value. In addition, you can flavour your meals with your favourite spices and herbs, rather than salt.

This will not only benefit your health now but also long-term. A diet rich in fresh, unprocessed foods and maintaining a healthy weight reduces your long-term disease risk.

Start cooking fresh meals with My Foodie Box, you really will be doing you and your family a big favour!
