So, kick back and let the locals minimize your to-do list and maximize your quality of life with feel-good food options for at-home dining.

Body & Soul Healthy Meal Plans

Husband-wife duo Gene Allsworth and Christy Boyer perfected their knack for plant-driven, organic cuisine while working as chefs in New England. Since 2020, the forces behind Southwest Florida’s Body & Soul Healthy Meal Plans (formerly Naples’ Body & Soul Cafe) have supplied healthful food via their delivery service (Fort Myers to Marco Island) with a decidedly Mediterranean tilt. Inspired by the balanced and near-universally suited diet, the chefs cook with lots of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, seafood (sourced from Cape Coral’s Merrick Seafood), beans, nuts and limited red meat. The duo offers a broad range of low-sodium plans (Mediterranean, senior, vegan and restricted menus, which cater to soy, gluten, dairy and other sensitivities), and they prepare everything the night before their twice-weekly delivery days for peak freshness.

Fresh Fit Foods

Pennsylvania Culinary Institute alum Chad O’Connor’s service began as a bonus for his brother’s CrossFit gym members nearly 15 years ago. The Michigan transplant started exclusively with meat-loving, grain-free paleo meals (the so-called ‘caveman diet’ is rampant among CrossFitters) and introduced other healthy diet options as he expanded. Chad and his team of 10 (including former Crave Culinaire executive chef Adam Kimball) now prep more than 2,000 meals a week for clients throughout most of Collier and Lee. Menus include general healthy-eating options, paleo dishes, plant-based plans and meals tailored for seniors—and most cater to gluten-free clients. Try the FFF Lasagna, which substitutes mandoline-sliced sweet potatoes for pasta, or the Yuzu Citrus Salmon, served with mango-coconut rice or cauliflower rice. Family dinners for three or more make it easy for parents to tackle meal time—dishes arrive in large aluminum tins ready to pop into the oven to reheat for the bunch—and you can order corporate lunches with different meals for 10 or more. If you can’t wait for deliveries, you can swing by Fresh Fit’s pickup locations Mondays through Wednesdays to get your week’s supply.

Jonas’ Vegan Kitchen

You don’t have to be vegan to enjoy Southwest Florida’s only local, 100-percent-plant-based meal delivery service, Jonas’ Vegan Kitchen. Longtime fitness fanatic and plant-powered cook Jonas Elliott began offering premade vegan meals at Fort Myers’ Iron DNA Fitness, where he worked as a coach and personal trainer in 2019. Over the past year, the word-of-mouth service has blossomed into a full-scale operation, serving hand-delivered meals from Marco Island to Port Charlotte. Jonas’ robust, rotating menu of global flavors dispels common vegan stereotypes (it’s not all carb-laden, cheese-drenched, protein-light meals here). Dishes range from the rich lentil, potato and sausage stew to the comforting barbecue soy curls plate to the ‘world-famous’ burrito that’s so popular Jonas makes 100 of them a week. Each meal notes macro-nutrients, including protein, carbs, fat and calories, to inform tailored health goals. “If you’re trying to lose weight, we can direct you that way. If you’re trying to gain muscle, we’ll direct you that way,” Jonas says. “I even have meat eaters who order my food and use it as sides.” For some, the delivery service offers an easy way to eat vegan a few times a week. Jonas usually delivers on Mondays but can offer other days based on your needs.
