As winter approaches, one can’t help but gradually retreat into the sweet comfort of the largest, baggiest of sweaters, as our #HealthGoals drift further and further away from our grasps. Sigh.
But one of Cairo’s most popular provider of healthy meals has a different plan for the coming cold; BodyBlocks is stepping up its service to same day delivery in Zamalek and Maadi with Uber Eats – perfect timing for the newly launched range of ready-to-heat winter meals. Talk about great timing, eh?
The new ready-to-heat meals include nine healthy options to choose from, in addition to a selection of three soups – a new range that founder and nutritional therapist, Nadine El Alaily, was very happy to reveal exclusively to the CairoScene team.
“We’re determined to offer a delivery service that met the demanding schedules of our customers,” she told us as we dug into a few samples of the meals, nodding in agreement. “We’re really pleased that our same day delivery has started at the same time as the launch of our ready-to-heat meals.”
What’s even better is that this same day delivery service delivers more than just the new ready-to-heat meals; the additions come on top of an already very impressive menu that includes healthy salads, soups, snacks, wraps of various kinds, and even protein bars and smoothies. It all makes for a varied selection that offers a little bit of something for everyone, but if you want our recommendations, the chicken meatballs are yum, the roast turkey with vegetables are double yum, and the lentils bolognese is – well, let’s just say that you may never want to eat spaghetti Bolognese again.
If we’ve managed to work you into a state of chin-scratching curiousity, keep in mind that you can also pick up BodyBlocks goodies in several locations around Cairo. In Zamalek, you can find them at health and fitness studio, Vibes, and at Sunny Supermarket, while over in Maadi, El Market stocks them. Further out in the suburbs of the capital, Sunny Market in Sheikh Zayed’s Westown Hub, Arkan Mall and 6th of October’s LA7 Gym in New Giza is where to go or Swan Lake New Cairo if you’re on the other side of the city.
What this all adds up to, boys and girls, is that BodyBlocks is good news for everyone – even the most cynical of eaters who assumes healthy-eating is ‘too difficult in Cairo’. Not only does it provide the perfect combination between healthy and delicious, but, and we can’t stress this enough, it also delivers them to our doorstop. Like, right there. Like, all you literally have to do is answer the door. It’s this ease that has made BodyBlocks such an attractive option for all – every man, woman and child, athlete, vegan and anyone with any kind of special dietary needs.
This is not the end of the expansion for BodyBlocks, however, with El Alaily also leaving us with five simple words that never cease to get us uncontrollably excited – “this is just the beginning.”
