Healthy Takeout Alternatives

08 April 2021

We’ve put together some tasty replacement recipes for you to try that can be prepared as quickly as it takes a delivery to arrive.

Takeout meals are becoming increasingly popular, with most people taking very little convincing to place an order with a local restaurant. Studies carried out by Cancer Research UK have shown that at least 79 million ready meals and 22 million fast-food and takeout meals are consumed in Britain every week.(1)

Packed with salt, fat, and sugar, takeout is notoriously known to many as their weekend cheat meal. When you’re trying to stick to a healthy diet or an exercise plan, it can feel hard to resist the convenience and flavors that come with placing a takeout order after a long day. To help you avoid this temptation, we’ve put together some tasty replacement recipes for you to try that can be prepared as quickly as it takes a delivery to arrive.

Indian takeout-inspired meals

There’s nothing quite like a flavorsome curry to celebrate another week of hard work coming to a close. Avoiding the takeout menu doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy this delicious treat.
