In light of the still-raging Covid-19 pandemic, the past nine months of 2020 has probably been a blur for you. And if you’re like most Singaporeans, you must be getting a little stir-crazy – especially since overseas travel appears to be off the table till the end of the year.
Now might be the time to consider getting a subscription box. Nothing beats the happiness of tearing into a package, after all. It’s like Christmas in every delivery (only you actually have to pay for the goods).
That said, health is wealth. So, there’s probably nothing wiser than spending on health-centered subscription boxes. Fortunately, there are now quite a few D2C (direct-to-consumer) health-focused subscription boxes in Singapore.
And no, it’s not all about stuffing your face with healthy food! Some companies help build other healthy habits into your daily routine – as you’ll see in just a bit. Without further ado, here are the top healthy subscriptions your body will thank you for.
1. Boxgreen subscription box for healthy snacks
It’s 3 pm. There are still 4 hours to knock-off time. You’re tired and hungry. Chances are, you’ll reach out for whatever’s convenient to you.
You know the usual culprits: chips, doughnuts, sugared peanuts, etc.
As satisfying as these snacks are in the moment, though, they cause a huge blood sugar level increase – and the much-dreaded crash after. Not to mention, they’re likely to cause weight gain just because of how calorie-dense they are.
To ensure that you avoid the crash (and the 10 kg weight gain), you’ll want to fuel your body with healthy snacks.
Meet BoxGreen, the subscription box that allows you to build your own box and fill it with delicious and wholesome snacks (up to 5 different snacks) tailored to your needs.
There’s gluten-free, dairy-free, and paleo options as well, there’s bound to be something for your dietary needs.
Subscription starts from S$19.90 per month.
2. Get your fruits with Yaya Papaya subscription box
People who eat more fruits and vegetables have a lower risk of various chronic diseases, like diabetes and obesity. But be honest.
When was the last time you ate a fruit? (And no, fruit-infused tea is not counted!) To get those vitamin-loaded fruits in your system, sign up for Yaya Papaya’s subscription service. Yaya Papaya stocks all kinds of fresh fruits (e.g. apples, avocados, bananas, berries, and melons) from around the world.
You have four boxes to choose from: Immunity, Rainbow, Juicing, and Seasonal Surprise; each box is priced at S$45. You can decide how many boxes you want to be delivered monthly.
This way, you’ll never need to tap on the watermelon in NTUC to see if it’s any good ever again (and inevitably inviting stares from people around you); all fruits from Yaya Papaya are certified fresh!
3. Subscribe to healthy, balanced meals with AMGD subscription box
Having healthy, balanced meals as recommended by the Health Promotion is not as easy as it seems. This is made worse by the fact that you’re likely still WFH – and unless you’ve got a ton of time on your hands (or are incredibly passionate about cooking), you’re probably calling it a day with a pack of Maggi Mee.
And maybe adding a pan-fried egg on “good days”. If you’d like to eat healthier – without having to worry about cooking or clean-up, hit AMGD up.
AMGD works on a pay-per-use credit system, where you purchase credits and use it whenever you want. The subscription box offers over 20 macro-nutritionally balanced meal options.
You’ll be pleased to know that every meal option’s total calorie count is provided, so you never have to worry about exceeding your ‘budget’ for the day.
Also, AMGD clearly indicates if a meal is
- low carb-high protein, or even
- low fat, high carb
Perfect for meeting your fitness goals! Subscription starts from S$17 per meal with its ala carte pass. Nothing feels better than coming home to packages – especially ones that make you healthier!
