Prepared Meal Delivery Service: You Can’t Beat Real Nutrition

Prepared Meal Delivery Service: You Can’t Beat Real Nutrition

Sure, processed and fast foods are easier to get a hold of when you’re in a pinch compared to the delicious and healthy meals you can cook in the comfort of your own kitchen. But, you can’t beat the benefits of real nutrition. A diet full of processed food can leave you feeling sluggish, tired and with a total lack of focus. Processed foods have very little nutritional value and your body needs the vitamins and nutrients that come from more healthy options, in order to function properly. If you lack the proper time to cook wholesome, balanced meals at home, you may want to opt for a prepared meal delivery service.

Prepared meal delivery services are great options for dieters on-the-go. They can help you reclaim your body while eating real healthy food. However, one dieting mistake to keep in mind is overindulging on snacks. Yikes!

Many people experience dieting pitfalls when it comes to snacks

It seems so simple. If you’re hungry then you should eat—whatever you can find—but usually, whatever you can find isn’t the healthiest option, especially if you’re stuck in an office.

Here are some tips for smart snacking from Kath Eats Real Food.

Also keep in mind that bistroMD offers delicious and healthy snacks in our prepared meal delivery service plans. Our snacks are designed to make you feel fuller for!

But if you want to start out slow and make your own snacks, here are those tips we promised you.

Create a balance

Ask yourself, “What have I already eaten today?” and “What could I use more of?” This is simple. If you had fruit and nuts for breakfast, try having yogurt as a snack. If you had toast at breakfast, try having fruit for a snack. Switch it up, have fun and be creative!

Eat real food

Fresh food takes up more space in your stomach, making you feel fuller longer. Try veggies and hummus, fresh fruit, cheese and crackers, trail mix and bars with ingredients you can pronounce.

We know that finding the time to make a healthy meal or snack can be stressful, but if you’re looking for something fast and convenient without the hassle of frequenting the grocery store, bistroMD offers prepared meal delivery service plans that can help you successfully lose weight with real food.

We cook with the freshest ingredients and have over 200 recipes and a customizable menu so you should have no problem finding something to satisfy your taste buds.

Every bite you take follows this proven approach for healthy weight loss. Our program provides 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.

It only takes a few weeks to start seeing results. You don’t have anything to lose, but the fat!

We have a men and a women’s program with the option to receive five-or-seven-days’ worth of healthy meals delivered to your door.

The two programs range from $130-$160 and EATS, our essential and tasty snacks are just $1.50 per snack. Women receive two snacks per day and men receive three snacks per day.

Plan ahead

It will be MUCH easier to get healthy snacks if you already have your kitchen stocked up with healthy choices. Figure out what times you usually feel those hunger pangs during the day and plan your snacks accordingly. For example, If I don’t eat by 1 PM, I end up overeating later on.

Whether you make your own snacks at home or opt for EATS from our prepared meal delivery service, healthy snacks are the glue that holds your other meals together and should not be overlooked. Happy snacking!
