Healthy Food Delivery Service Beats Not Having Energy

Healthy Food Delivery Service Beats Not Having Energy

That midday energy slump affects more people than you might think. Many people are ready to crawl into bed by the end of a long work day. If that sounds like you, rest assured because you are not alone. Believe it or not, a healthy diet or healthy food delivery service can get you back on your feet, literally, with some energy to spare.

Without proper nutrition, your body can’t function the way it should. It’s literally out of “gas” if you don’t feed it a balanced diet.  Many Americans want to live a healthier lifestyle, but their busy schedules make it almost impossible.

Well, not anymore.

Healthy food delivery

If you’re looking for something fast and convenient without the hassle of frequenting the grocery store, bistroMD a healthy food delivery service that can help you successfully lose weight by eating delicious healthy 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.

Foods that give you a natural energy boost

Forget those bad-for-you energy drinks and try these natural energy boosters. If you’ve forgotten to pack your entrée from our healthy food delivery service, try these 5 natural endurance boosters.

Dark, leafy vegetables

Dark, leafy vegetables like spinach and kale are perfect for salads and a quick energy boost. They’re low in calories, but high in iron—which is perfect if you’re iron deficient.


Quinoa contains iron, B2, protein and magnesium for a quadruple energy boost. It also helps stabilize blood sugar and prevent symptoms of hypoglycemia. Keep that in mind if you’re diabetic.


Beans provide much needed protein and iron. They’re also high in tryptophan, which can elevate your mood and help those who suffer from depression.


Salmon is packed with tons of omega-3’s which have many health benefits. They can reduce inflammation in the body, control weight gain and prevent cancer cell growth and fatigue. Like beans, salmon can also help elevate your mood!

Dark chocolate

If you’re trying to cut back on the caffeine, but need an energy boost to get through the rest of the day, try dark chocolate for a much less caffeinated boost of endurance. Dark chocolate contains magnesium and can also help elevate your mood. But make sure you choose a tasty morsel with a high cocoa content (shoot for over 70%) and limit your consumption to 1 oz. since chocolate isn’t exactly fat free.

Some of these items like dark chocolate are great because they’re easily accessible and always convenient. Some items like quinoa, dark, leafy greens, salmon and beans require more cooking and preparation. This is where a healthy food delivery service comes in handy.

However, some people are still skeptical because healthy food delivery seems too good to be true. What’s the catch? Does it taste like cardboard? They’re must be a catch, right?

There is no catch.

Our entrees are cooked with fresh ingredients. Our recipes are developed by bariatric physician and bistroMD founder, Dr. Caroline Cederquist and her husband, other founder and self-proclaimed foodie, Ed, and our registered dieticians to ensure nutritional standards. Our entrees are then flash-frozen to ensure taste and quality. All you have to do is thaw out your entrée and zap it in the microwave for its recommended cooking time. It really is that simple.
