Grocery Delivery: Too Good to be True?

Grocery Delivery: Too Good to be True?

Imagine that you never have to go to the grocery store again. What a huge sigh of relief that must be. Going to the grocery store is one of the things Americans; especially busy Americans dread the most. Our lives would be so much easier if grocery delivery was possible. Imagine driving home from work, calling the grocery store and telling them which ingredients you need to make chicken burritos, for example. And when you get home after a long day of work, the ingredients are already there waiting for you. That sounds like an American’s dream and some companies really do deliver fresh ingredients to your home; but that’s only half the battle. Grocery Delivery may save you a lot of time, but you must still select a recipe, cook the meal and clean up after you’re done. Grocery delivery may suffice for some people, but for those with an “on-the-go” lifestyle, a plain old diet delivery program may accommodate your needs and give you better results.

BistroMD combines the best of both worlds

At bistroMD, we go to the grocery store for you. So it’s kind of like grocery delivery, but in a packaged frozen container full of delicious food. We also cook and clean so you don’t have to. We want to see you succeed so we don’t mind doing the work for you.

The importance of ingredients

We only use top of the line ingredients in our entrees because we believe the ingredients you use to create your entrées are essential to a mouthwatering taste. For that reason, we are committed to using ingredients from responsible sources by selecting environmentally-responsible seafood, always sourcing r-BGH beef, using hormone-free chicken and always partnering with local, family-owned farms whenever possible. Our chefs also hand select the freshest ingredients for your entrées themselves. We have a high regard for integrity here at bistroMD. That means we would not serve you anything we would not eat ourselves. This means you won’t find any Trans fats, artificial colorings, MSG, chemical fillers, nitrates, added sulfites or the artificial sweetener aspartame in our entrees.

The stuff we’re made of

One of our founders, Ed Cederquist loves to be in the kitchen helping our chefs create delicious recipes. Ed fell in love with great cooking and a healthy lifestyle while attending college. At Caroline's medical center, Ed would often hear patients say, "I'm losing weight, but I don't have the time or knowledge to cook healthy." This gave Ed the idea to combine his love for food, with Caroline's expertise as The M.D. That idea is bistroMD.

Our program is founded on the science that you need these nutrition requirements to lose weight: 1,100-1,400 calories daily with 40-50% total caloric intake from lean, adequate protein, 20-25% of calories from healthy fats, and 30-35% from complex carbohydrates.

If you are interested in changing your life, we offer different programs to best fit your lifestyle. We have programs for both men or women, a whole weeks worth of healthy grocery delivery, quality food delivered to your door from our diet food delivery program.
