With excellent new restaurants opening on the daily, it’s hard enough to maintain a healthy diet in Shanghai. So anything that helps make things a little easier, we’re willing to give a try.
Enter WHEAT, a fast-casual food platform offering wholesome eats, fresh-made juices and smoothies and meal plans available via delivery and pick-up at its kitchen kiosks – the latest of which has set up shop on Xinzha Lu in Jingan.
Its meal plans can cater to specific dietary requirements like gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian, etc. Plans come with – or without, depending on which meals you want – breakfast, lunch, afternoon snack, dinner and delivery within 5km of north Jingan, all from 165RMB to 265RMB per day. Purchase meals day by day or months at a time, with the option to cancel or reschedule any plan with 24 hours’ notice.
If you know what you’re looking for in terms of caloric intake, you can select plans varying from 1,300Kcal to 2,500Kcal per day, but if have no idea about any of that stuff, WHEAT offers a free nutritional consultation form you can fill out, which a nutritionist will review and make recommendations accordingly.
The platform’s options include salads, wraps, pasta and various bowls – think açaí and smoothie bowls or black rice with salmon (you can also go DIY and create your own ‘power bowl’).
For those with a sweet tooth, it also has baked goods and desserts to choose from, like French chocolate mousse (30RMB) and Keto Muffins (30RMB).
Aside from good eats, WHEAT has a lineup of juices and protein smoothies from 45RMB, as well as protein coffees and ‘detox’ teas from around 23RMB and up.
If that’s all sounding like your cup of detox tea, this month customers will be entered into a lucky draw to win two Detox Challenge days with every order. Scan the QR code at the bottom of this post for more details and to stay tuned for more info on WHEAT’s meal plan challenges.
