The (Many) Pros of Prepared Meals

Nov 15, 2021

Between traveling to cousin Rebecca’s house and rummaging through storage bins for ornaments, candles, and string lights, time runs thin during the holiday season. So...what’s the deal with dinner? If last-minute supermarket runs and recipe hunting aren’t in the cards, you might turn to the Internet for a tasty solution. (Because let’s face it, you’ve already had Thai takeout twice this week and a bowl of cereal seems a little too bleak.)

Your search yields two solid options: 

1. Subscription-Based Meal Kits

Meal kits, like HelloFresh, offer a fun experience if you enjoy making food from scratch. Each week you’ll receive a big ol’ box in the mail containing a recipe card, along with all of the pre-portioned produce, condiments, and spices involved. However, you’ll have to put in the kitchen time since the prep and cooking are done yourself. 

2. Prepared Meals Delivered Fresh 

Prepared meals are delivered fresh to your door, so you can satisfy your cravings on any time crunch. From plant-based bowls to comfort food classics, simply select your meals, decide on a delivery time, and dinner is done. All you have to do is heat and eat! 

If you’re leaning towards the latter due to your packed holiday schedule, let’s chat about the pros of Freshly prepared meals. 

Get the Convenience You Crave 

Do you dream about what you could do with an extra 57 minutes in your day? You could finally take a cycling class, or get the old gang together for garage band practice. Skip the trip to the grocery store and get zero-prep, chef-cooked dinners delivered right to your door. The best part is, it’s ready to eat in just 3 minutes. Go get those steps in, crack open the next chapter of your book, or squeeze in some quality couch time. 

Enjoy Better-for-You Food 

Perfectly-portioned and balanced meals mean you can eat better, even at your busiest! Our chefs pack protein, complex carbs, and veggies into every meal, and sneak in satisfying ingredient swaps wherever they can. With a nutritionist-approved dinner, you don’t have to worry about artificial colors and other processed junk. 

Make Cleanup a Piece-of-Cake 

Friends don’t let friends do dirty dishes. No more piles of pots and pans, stained cutting boards, or stubborn skillets. Simply heat your meal and enjoy (you can even skip the plate!).

Reduce Your Food Footprint 

Bid farewell to back-of-the-fridge mystery food. Prepared meals are perfect for impulsive over-buyers, serial leftover-tossers, or for those who don't feel like purchasing an entire bottle of thyme for a recipe that calls for ½ teaspoon. According to Feeding America, 108 billion pounds of food is wasted in the United States per year. Let’s start cutting down that mammoth number, one prepared meal at a time.
