To use or not to use a meal delivery service? There are many factors that go into this choice, including convenience, taste, satisfaction and, of course, cost. We point out three main reasons why you should be including a meal delivery service in your life and why you will never go back to meal prepping again!
Here are the top reasons why you should be using a meal delivery service:
1) Plants help reconnect you to the healthy diet.
Regardless of your health goals or diet strategy, incorporating more plants into your day allows you to reconnect to the flavors of nature. Vegetables, fruits, whole grains, beans, nuts, and seeds contain a variety of pleasing textures and flavors as well as potent nutrition for your body. Eating more plants is a simpler, more effective solution to long-term health than any fad diet ever will be. And as busy humans, we need the ability to make easy and smart choices for our body. Enter fruit and veggies on repeat. Not ready to be all in? Start with just one plant-based meal per day, or add more plants such as herbs, leafy greens, and fresh fruit to the meals you already eat.
The truth is, there are countless reasons why you might consider meal delivery. Regardless of the reasons behind your food choices, everyone benefits from eating a specific group of foods: plants.
2) Saves you money.
For every dollar Americans spend on food, over a third goes to eating out, and another large chunk goes to eating processed and “convenience foods”. Many meal delivery services actually offer fully prepared or partially prepared healthy food options for a lower price than your typical unhealthy takeaway option! Plus they are combining efforts of chefs and nutritionists, making meals healthy and tasty.
By creating ready-to-eat, simple meals and delivering them to your door, meal delivery services help you create EASY, affordable habits that you can stick to.
3) Saves you time.
When grocery shopping, you have to plan ahead. You need to figure out the exact meals you’ll be cooking that week and create a shopping list with all the necessary ingredients. Not to mention the time then spent shopping and meal prepping. Even if you do your grocery shopping and meal prepping once per week, it would take you at least 2-3 hours on an otherwise restful Sunday night.
When using a meal delivery service, meals arrive right to your door fully prepared or pre assembled for cooking. Meaning there’s no need for meal prep! You will be able to form healthy habits while spending more time on the things you love.
