18 Sep 5 Awesome Reasons To Hire A Meal Prep Service
Preparing meals ahead of time helps you avoid making impulse food choices (which aren’t always healthy), saves you time and keeps you organized.
But what if cooking isn’t your thing? Does the thought of chopping, dicing, and grilling make you cringe?
What if we told you that you could enjoy all the health benefits of prepared meals, minus all the work?
Hiring a meal prep service means you’ll have portioned, healthy meals delivered to your doorstep without the headaches of actually preparing them yourself.
Read on for 5 reasons to hire a meal prep service.
1. Get the Healthiest Ingredients
Meal prep services often use the freshest and healthiest ingredients available when crafting your meals. This means you receive the freshest fruits, vegetables, and nutrient rich proteins.
When food is delivered fresh to your doorstep, you’re receiving the most bang for your buck in terms of nutrition. Fresh foods are packed with vitamins and minerals that are essential for muscle recovery and growth.
Buying these items loosely at the grocery store can get expensive. Which brings us to our next point.
2. A Meal Prep Service Can Save you Money
Who doesn’t like saving money? Trips to the grocery store are both time-consuming and draining on your wallet.
How many times have you strayed from your shopping list? Filling your cart with items you either don’t need, will never use or contradict your healthy way of living?
Temptation is hard, so why not avoid those cookies or chips staring at you from the shelves and have healthy foods delivered to you?
3. Save Yourself the Time
We don’t just mean the time it takes to drive to the grocery store and buy the items you need to create healthy snacks and meals, but what about the time it takes to prepare them?
Most vegetables need to be cut, diced and chopped for use in recipes. You might need to steam or boil other ingredients and even grill or bake your meats.
Some people enjoy the preparation part of meal-planning, but for others, it’s something they dread. If you fall into the latter group, let a meal prep service do the work for you.
Perfectly portioned and packaged meals hand-delivered to your door means the hardest work you’ll put into food prep is opening the refrigerator and popping your meals into the microwave!
4. Meal Delivery Is Convenient
Convenience is key when trying to balance a busy life with a healthy one.
That’s why it’s hard to avoid small nutritional hiccups like swinging into that fast food drive-thru or grabbing that popcorn out of the pantry. When you’re constantly on the move, you want something quick, easy and, yes, convenient.
Make your healthy meals and snacks convenient too! With prepared meals provided for you, they’ll always be in quick reach and ready to go. Avoid those “cheats” in your diet by having healthy meals at your fingertips.
5. You Can Control Your Portions
With dinner plates three times the size they used to be and restaurants providing two helpings for one person, it’s no wonder our concept of portion control is distorted.
You may know the unofficial way of determining portion size — a protein should be the size of your palm, carbs should be the size of your fist and two tablespoons is about the size of a ping-pong ball.
This isn’t always easy to follow, but if the portions are already measured out for you, you have no choice but to follow! That’s the beauty of a meal prep delivery service.
