Home-cooked meals bring back a memory, nostalgia, and craving.

Though cooking in the kitchen is a beneficial skill to have, regularly cooking meals at home can be challenging when balancing a busy schedule.

But with bistroMD, never miss out on favorite home-cooking recipes again!

The Allure of Home-Cooked Meals

It is hard to not fall to the allure of home-cooked meals…

The fragrant aroma lingering from the kitchen. The dynamic flavors of each bite. The sound of kids laughing at the dining table. Home-cooked meals not only entice the senses, but invite and build an entire dining experience and memory.

But with busy schedules and life responsibilities, preparing home-cooked meals day-in and day-out becomes a challenge. Convenient meals lacking nutritional value may also resorted to, leaving the body unsatisfied and increasing the risk of weight gain.

BistroMD is breaking down barriers by delivering home-cooked meals straight to doorsteps, saving time on meal prep and gifting delicious and nutritious meals.

Home-Cooked Meals from BistroMD

BistroMD provides the same sense of comfort and warmth by delivering home-cooked entrees across the nation.

And being based on integrity, bistroMD would never serve anything they would not eat at their own dinner tables with their loved ones. That means all meals are devoid of trans fats, artificial colorings, MSG, chemical fillers, nitrates, added sulfites or the artificial sweetener aspartame in entrees. And that is a promise.

What’s more, all meals are scientifically-balanced to provide the body with what it needs to lose weight. Each meal contains 1,100 to 1,400 calories daily with 40 to 50 percent of total caloric intake from lean, adequate protein, 20 to 25 percent of calories from healthy fats, and 30 to 35 percent from complex carbohydrate.

Delivered Frozen Home Cooking

BistroMD delivers frozen home-cooked meals straight to doorsteps. But do not confuse frozen to unappetizing!

Frozen home-cooked meals prepared by bistroMD are flash frozen, a method that inhibits spoilage when food is frozen during their peak ripeness. Flash frozen meals withhold their freshness and food safety through careful packaging and the use of dry ice, which protects them from losing their nutritional quality during transportation.

What’s more, flash frozen meals not only retain their freshness, but may even be the freshest food offered! Produce, especially, is flash frozen within just a few short hours following harvest, locking in key nutrients and preserving its flavor.

Flash frozen foods also retain their freshness for longer bouts of time and have a much longer shelf-life than its refrigerated relative. Preserving foods lets individuals enjoy foods that may not be in season throughout all times of the year, especially seasonal fruits, veggies, and fresh caught fish.

So instead of the boring and often lackluster taste and nutrition that comes to mind when thinking about frozen meals, think healthy, home-cooked meals ready to eat in a matter of minutes!

And truly, eating home-cooked meals has never been so nutritious, delicious, and convenient!
