There are lots of reasons why you might opt for a ready meal over a home cooked one. There’s no prep, no mess, no food waste or tedious washing up to do.

Just zap them for 2-3 minutes and you’re ready to sit down and tuck in!

Parsley Box founders, Adrienne and Gordon MacAulay, were looking for a range of healthy ready meals for Gordon’s mother. “I was worried about her eating properly and the more we searched, the fewer options we had,” says Gordon. “There just had to be a quicker, easier and safer way of enjoying healthier convenience food.”

And so Parsley Box was born, healthier ready meals, that give your insides a hug. Ordered by phone or online and delivered directly to your door. Such an enviable, simple idea that’s clearly struck a chord, racking up over 160,000 satisfied customers and sending out 3.5 million meals to date.

The impressive menu features over 60 dishes and a range of single-serving wines, beers and spirits to choose from.

No need to use a fridge or freezer either, just pop them in your store cupboard, ready to eat when you are – and if your order is over £19 and placed before 3pm (Mon-Thur) you’ll qualify for free next day delivery* with a guaranteed 2-hour time slot.
