Channel surfing does not qualify as exercise. Put down the remote and tune into these new health and wellness finds.

Top Chef
One-size-fits-all food-delivery service won’t fly in the land of glutenphobes and nondairy queens. Customized meals from Paleta come with both vegan and vegetarian programs along with a check list that accommodates the pickiest eaters with the busiest schedules. We bet they’d even cut your crusts off if you ask nicely.

You’ll have the chia shake with a side of crunches. During M Cafe’s Twelve Days of Detox, 500 bucks gets you five one-on-one sessions with celeb trainer Patrick Murphy. On workout days, stop by the restaurant beforehand for juice or oatmeal, then refuel with one of the seven postworkout meals picked for the program by chef Lee Gross.

New Girl
A virtual wheatgrass shot for your mind, The Chalkboard launches today. The health website from the well-hydrated beverage fanatics behind Pressed Juicery gives you something to read while chugging your Detox 4 (cucumber, pineapple, coconut H20, and aloe vera) juice.

Work It
When the surprise of your veggie CSA wears off (potatoes, again?), make your list, check it twice, and then send it over to the Farmers Market Fairy. The founder hoofs it to the local markets five days a week to make sure you get fresh produce you’ll actually use. Ethical butcher shops and responsible fishmongers are on her route, too.

Modern Family
Throw on your best sweats and head to Fred Segal Santa Monica for Fitist’s Sunday Funday class this Sunday at 9:30 a.m. It’s a free 90-minute workout with trainers from the Fitist network of boutique studios, including Andrea Orbeck, Adam Ernster, Indo-Row’s Josh Crosby, and Ballet Bodies’s Andie Hecker. You might even catch nutritionist Oz Garcia in the parking lot. To R.S.V.P., email rsvp@fitist.com.

Now you’re ready for prime time.
