Three meals prepped in Tupperware

Standing and preparing a meal can be fun, but it can be a challenge for a lot of adults with disabilities and senior citizens. That’s why subscribing to a meal prep service is so beneficial. You don’t have to resort to eating microwaved meals that are poor for your health.

When you choose to use a meal prep service, you get healthy meals delivered to your door already prepared for you by a trained chef. And they might be more within your budget than buying all the ingredients from the grocery store.

Let’s go over what there is to know about meal prep services and why you should consider making the switch.

You Can Get Holiday-Oriented Meals and Sides

When you make the switch to meal prep services, you can do it for your everyday needs as well as for holiday meals. That’s right, you can save yourself some stress during the holiday season by ordering meals and sides fit for a Thanksgiving or Christmas feast.

You can get delectable sides such as roasted root vegetables, cheddar mashed potatoes, or traditional stuffing laden with fresh herbs. Yum! And all you have to do is minimal cleaning up afterward.

The Ultimate In Convenience

Meal prep services are convenient 24/7/365. You simply pick out what you want to order, a trained chef prepares it, and it gets delivered to your front door. There’s no need to go out and grab groceries every few days or worry that you have run out of something you need.

Is your work schedule a tad unpredictable? Are you busy shuttling your kids around to school and activities? These meals make life a lot less chaotic. You get to spend more time with your kids or focusing on your work and less time worrying about meal prep. What’s more, if you have picky eaters in the household, there are a lot of different meals for them to try. Even the most savagely picky toddler might find that they enjoy what they get.

Achieve Your Health and Wellness Goals

Health and wellness are something you might be working toward, but trying to prepare healthy meals on your own is a lot easier said than done. One of the benefits of using a meal prep service is that they use fresh, healthy ingredients and portion everything out accordingly. This takes the guesswork out of it for you.

Want to lose weight? There are meals you can get to help you with that. Want to build muscle mass? Other meals can deliver the right nutrients to help you meet that goal. You won’t have to spend time and energy stressing over how many meals you need to prep each day, how to figure out macros, and how to still meet the unique dietary needs of others in your household. Without all that added stress, you can spend more time working on your wellness goals.

Contributing to the Community

A lot of well-trained chefs are finding that they can contribute to their communities by starting at-home meal prep services for clients in need. Here at Meal Village, we have a crew of highly skilled in-house chefs who help us serve northeastern to northwestern Illinois, including Chicago and its surrounding suburbs.

As a local meal prep service, it is all about taking care of the communities we live and work in. By becoming a meal prep service client, you are essentially helping the company give back to and do more for the community. Not only is the company able to provide you and your family with healthy meals, but they can do it for others, too.

Eliminate Food Waste

Every year, we spend over $220 billion on growing, transporting, and processing about 70 million tons of food that ends up going to waste.

When you go to the grocery store without a specific meal plan laid out, you might end up spending a lot on food that you will end up having to throw away. Meal prep services alleviate that problem and are helping to curb food waste. You will get everything you need, nothing you don’t, and use a lot fewer trash bags for junking food in the process.
