Healthy Food Choices
Are you busy but still concerned about your health? We at MealMakers have a wide variety of options that will enable you to eat healthy!
Following are some practical suggestions to help you make a fast meal a healthy one.
Sandwiches, Paninis, Subs & Wraps:
Always go for whole-grain breads, include lots of vegetables, a protein source like humus, lean roast beef, or chicken (instead of the “assorted meats” which tend to be higher in fat and salt), slip in some cheese, and grab a vegetable juice to sip with it. We make a wide variety of sandwiches that will meet your dietary concerns.
Eating a salad every day offers numerous health benefits. It is one of the simplest and healthiest food habits that anyone can commit to. By eating a MealMakers salad it will bring you a few steps closer to the recommended daily serving of fruit and vegetables.
One health benefit of consuming salad is an increase in fiber intake. Salads provide the body with a lot of fiber which in turn means lower cholesterol and less constipation. Furthermore, when you eat these green wonders, you feel fuller, eat less and lose weight. Since salads are very filling, eating one prior to your main course will reduce the number of calories you end up consuming. By the time you get to the main course you will feel full and satisfied. This in turn will result in fewer calorie intake and loss of weight.
Fruit & Vegetables
Eat Fresh Fruit! We all think eating fruits means simply buying fruit, cutting it and just popping it into our mouths. You will benefit much more if you know how and when to eat. Let MealMakers do the work for you with our freshly prepared fruit cups, fresh fruit and other healthy choices.
Vegetables are low in fat and calories, a good source of dietary fiber and provide us with extra energy. All these features help control weight effectively. Being low in calories enables us to eat lots of vegetables without consuming excess energy. The high fiber content also helps fill the stomach faster limiting the total amount of food consumed.
