Nutrition. It’s everything, isn’t it? We could take all the group fitness classes and hike all the mountains and we could still gain weight, if what’s going into our mouths isn’t good for us. We could improve our heart health and increase our endurance by running daily, but if we came home and ate junk, we’d still see the scale go up.
Everyone has their own struggle and their own battle. For me personally, it’s taking the time to prepare healthy food. I’m a go-go girl. A woman who doesn’t like to slow down to make a protein packed lunch, instead of grabbing something easy. I love healthy food, I think it tastes great, but it’s the time and the preparation that gets me- especially during the summer, when I’d rather play than cook.
Recently I tried out the Chef by Request meal delivery service. At Chef by Request they focus on providing you fresh, healthy, gourmet meal options with daily delivery right to your doorstep. They have Zone, Paleo, Vegetarian, Whole 30, Gourmet Everyday menu options and they also factor in allergies and dislikes. Truly, the customize your food to fit your unique needs!
The full day of meals was delivered to my door Sunday night a midnight, ready and waiting for me on Monday morning. After a full weekend, this day of perfectly portioned food was just what I needed to hit the “reset” button, as I entered a fresh, new week.
I picked the “Paleo” menu and here’s what I ate: As a Mom of three kids, who generate plenty of dishes, it was such a treat to have my meals ready, without any dishes. I knew I was eating healthy and I didn’t have to think about it, plus there was no mess from preparation.
The people who sign up for Chef by Request do so for a variety of reasons that include:
- To Lose Weight
- Help with Type 2 Diabetes
- Live Gluten-Free
- Manage Celiac Disease
- Convenient and Easy
- A strong desire to just eat fresh, healthy, clean food
- A strong desire to eat local
Maybe you’re going through an especially trying season and you’re seeing nutrition take the back seat or maybe you simply have a busy weekend ahead or you’re wanting to kick start a healthy eating plan and get back on track. No matter what your story is, healthy meals make life better.
