A startup based in Union Square is helping hungry New Yorkers stay on budget — and in shape — by curating the most nutritious options into a custom menu ready for order and delivery in a half-hour or less. Healthy Hand currently has more than 200 participating restaurants which offer items even healthier than the usual menu through the site. Customers who sign up on the site are asked to enter their goals, allergies and any other preferences, and then Healthy Hand sends them daily emails with up to six meal choices tailored to their needs.
Users can then choose one of the options with a click of a button, and the delivery order is instantly placed with the selected restaurant and delivered. The service, which includes meal curation and delivery, costs $28 per month, plus the cost of food. Healthy Hand is similar to Seamless but focusing on dieting and healthy eating options.
