This soup is a well-known dish in the Dominican Republic and Colombia, and is made of hearty meats and vegetables. This may be a large departure from what you’re used to eating, but this is your chance to make 2017 the year that you order out of your food comfort zone.

You want to eat: Healthier
Burgers, pizza, and fries, oh my! If your diet dates back to your dorm days, it may finally be time to stir things up. Kick your resolution into high gear by replacing your normal order with a protein-infused, vegetable drink or shake. If you’re not ready to dive into the deep-end with a green drink, try simply being conscious about adding more combinations of fruits and veggies to your favorite orders instead of fries and chips.
Here’s a few way you can order healthier delivery in 2017:
Use the “healthy” filter to quickly find restaurants with lighter menu options
Take advantage of the special instructions, and ask to skip the cheese or mayo
Opt for pickup instead of delivery to burn some extra calories before mealtime
You want to eat: More consciously
You’ve got a lot on your plate when it comes to life, so you want to make sure what you have on your plate when it’s time to eat is ready to go. Meal prepping is an amazing asset for a busy schedule, and delivery makes it even easier. Ask for an extra takeout box, and quickly make one meal into two or three, or order from places that pre-package their meals so you can keep track of portions and nutrition.
Here’s a few ways to order more consciously in 2017:
Preorder delivery all week to make your meals consistent,on-time, and save you from last minute cravings
Package and store half of your delivery right away to get two meals out of one
Opt for protein-rich dishes to keep you fuller for longer
You want to be: More social
Feeling isolated when you eat at your desk? Order in and share it! While it can be a little difficult to start a conversation sometimes, tacos can definitely relieve some of the awkwardness when meeting new people. Order some extra and invite a co-worker to sit down at the table with you. Who knows, they might buy next time!
