A takeaway always seems like a bit of an indulgence.

For the days when you’re too tired or lazy to cook, a steaming hot pizza is just at the end of the phone - it’s too easy! 

But what about the times when you’re ‘trying to be good’. What then?

Luckily, there are more options than the local greasy spoon if you're not in the mood to get your cook on. 

If you’re not willing to compromise dem gainz with a cheeky burger, these 12 clean and delicious dishes can be ordered to your door!

Lebanese Falafel, Umi

Falafel is becoming increasingly popular and this one from Umi is pretty incredible, with loads of delicious tahini, parsley pickles and salad. Umi indeed!

Turkey Salad, Counter Culture

The ideal of a turkey salad doesn't usually conjure feelings of joy or excitement, but this little number from Counter Culture is immense. 

A seriously tasty turkey burger with avocado salad and the most perfect sweet potato fries. YAS!

Burrito Bowl, Boojum

Some of the best burritos in town can be found in this fine establishment. Their burrito bowls are pretty impressive and all you're sacrificing is the wrap which, let's face it, is a fairly tasteless vessel for all of the good stuff!

Beans With Pork Belly, Sister Sadie

If you're looking to impress someone the morning after the night before, this is the dish to order! Cannellini beans baked in a rich tomato sauce and melt in the mouth pork belly topped with a fried egg and some fresh baked sourdough. Drool.

Sundays are a day for roasts, that's just the way it is. But my God, they are time consuming. Camden Rotisserie has truly revolutionised Sundays with roast chicken, gravy, greens and mash delivered to your door at a time of your choosing. Heaven!

Filetto Di Tonno, Unicorn

Tuna steak is always a bit of a splurge and if it's cooked correctly, it's the business! This dish from Unicorn is definitely a treat with roast peppers, cured fish roe and aged balsamic.

Cocu on Baggot Street is one of our absolute favourites when it comes to tasty salads so we were delighted to hear recently that they've opened a new outlet in the city centre.

The doors opened on Chatham Street this week with more great healthy eating options, like Middle Eastern Chicken with roasted red peppers, smashed avocado and feta. Yum!

Beef Burger, The Woollen Mills

The Woollen Mills is one of our favourite spots to eat in Dublin. The produce is always fresh and interesting and they change the menu fairly regularly. 

The burger, while not totally diet friendly, is a staple in here and will never disappoint. Order in after a hard day's work and enjoy!

Beef, Green Beans & Roasted Squash, Eathos

You can't discuss healthy eating in Dublin without mentioning Eathos. Not your run of the mill salad bar, Eathos serves up top notch healthy nosh from sweet treats to unbelievable salads. 

A favourite here is the the pan roasted beef served with crips green beens, garlic and tamari roasted squash and some spicy horseradish. A dream lunch delivered to your desk!
