Prior to the outbreak of COVID-19, the on-demand economy brought on by major players like Uber and Amazon Prime had already begun its spread to the restaurant industry. Customers were craving the same convenience with purchasing food that they had acquired in other aspects of their life. Entering into the new post-COVID-19 world, this demand for food convenience has continued to skyrocket as a result of necessity (i.e., limited seating capacity at restaurants) and availability (i.e., increasing amounts of third-party delivery service providers.)
Even as dining rooms continue to open across the country, this high demand for food delivery services is expected to continue as Americans grow more and more adjusted to placing their food order from their phone and having it arrive within less than half an hour. Unfortunately, when it comes to getting food delivered, it can be far too easy to make unhealthy choices — sometimes without even realizing it. This article will review how Duck Dash, a local food delivery service in Channelside, can help you from becoming bogged down with unhealthy food delivery services.
Food delivery services have quickly become an outlet for junk food on demand. A recent study conducted by the University of Sydney examined publicly available data on the healthiness of the most popular food outlets and found that the majority of outlets and menu items advertisements can be classified as ‘unhealthy’ under independent guidelines. However, the abundance of these highly processed foods isn’t quite the problem. Instead, the real issue at hand is the ease with which we order anything we want, whenever we want.
Getting into your car and going through a fast-food drive-through is much more of a conscious decision to eat junk food than pressing a few buttons on your smartphone. The order shows up right at your doorstep, and you never have to come to terms with what you’ve done until you view your bill at the end of the month. On top of this, most takeaway portions of unhealthy dishes tend to be larger than home-cooked meals, which leads to overeating without realizing what you’ve done.
Duck Dash differs from other food delivery services in the business because we provide local and gluten-free food delivery in Channelside. All of our groceries are delivered directly from Duckweed Urban Grocery — a local downtown grocery market that offers locally sourced, organic groceries. This means, in addition to supporting the economy and benefiting the environment, you’ll have a better idea of the food that’s going into your body. Locally sourced foods also often retain more nutrients than those which travel long distances and need to be picked before they are ripe.
If you’re feeling more peckish, you can order meals from Farmacy Vegan Kitchen + Bakery through Duck Dash as well. This is a no-brainer for those looking for a wide variety of vegan, healthy, and ready-to-eat dishes and sweet treats. No matter which option you’re looking for, feel free to browse our selection on our website and place your order online or through our convenient app.
