I like nothing more than someone bringing my food to me all lovely and ready to tuck into and enjoy…. even better when it is healthy and delicious too! Pollen + Grace are a London healthy food delivery company founded this year providing guilt-free, nutritionally tailored lunches to you at your desk and I tried it out this week!
Pollen + Grace have a simple straight forward process. Their menu changes daily – you get on their website, check out what the options are and if you order before 10am you can have it delivered to you for lunch time! The menu isn’t huge, but it’s far from average, which is what counts – every time I have looked at the menu I would have no problem ordering, it always sounds delicious. Each option offers a meat and meat-free version and all their recipes are gluten, dairy, wheat and refined sugar free. They can also cater to dietary requirements such as nut-free, vegan, paleo, coeliac and lactose free (or if you’re a bit weird like me and cannot have coriander or kale anywhere near their food) they can also look after you! If you would require anything like this you would just either give them a call or an email or pop your needs in the ‘additional comments’ box when ordering online.
What did I have? I chose the ‘Aussie Inspired Brunch’ which contained prawns, rocket, corn fritters, guacamole and some delicious gluten free bread. It turned up all beautifully packaged in a white box, knife and fork and some yummy coconut balls for an afternoon snack. The food was so fresh and absolutely packed full of flavour, it was such a lovely treat to have something homemade as I am usually in too much of a hurry/too lazy to prepare myself a healthy lunch before I leave for work! I also didn’t have that mid-afternoon slump and find myself hungry later on in the afternoon which was great! You can also even add a juice to your order… I didn’t have one but next time I will definitely be trying their Root & Restore juice with beetroot, carrot, lemon, ginger which seems perfect ingredients to boost you through the autumn months ahead.
Would I get it again? Yes! Without a shadow of a doubt… although I am really hoping that my work postcode will soon be added to their free delivery range so I can get it regularly! Currently their free delivery postcodes are W4, W6, W14, SW3, SW5, SW6, SW7, SW11 but they are hoping to expand this list very soon! If you live/work outside these postcodes you will have to add a £5 delivery fee, unless you can team up with 8 of your office mates and order together and then the delivery will be free. Pollen + Grace is also available in a few gyms – Frame, Transition Zone, Retreat Cafe and The Power Yoga Company.
