Below is a guest article from our friends over at Model Meals. Enjoy!
When you think of meal delivery, you usually think of things like pizza, chinese food, and greasy treats. But things are changing.
For us, meal delivery means farm-fresh, organic, Whole30/Paleo approved dishes delivered right to your doorstep. It also means living a healthy lifestyle isn’t as expensive or difficult as most people believe.
In fact, there are 5 major ways that meal delivery services can help you kickstart a healthy lifestyle change:
1. Saving yourself time 🕑
When you want to make a big change in your life, especially when it comes to health and fitness, time can be your biggest enemy. Buying your food, researching what meals you want to make, learning how to cook new dishes, and prepping food days in advance takes up a lot of precious time. Which is where meal delivery services come in handy.
With Model Meals, for example, you can save 5 hours every single week just by ordering your food online and having it delivered. Imagine saving yourself 5 hours a week? It gives you more time for fitness, work, and spending time doing the things you love. So if more time = doing more of the things you love, then meal delivery services aren’t just saving you time, they’re making you happier too. And who doesn’t want to have more time and more happiness?!
2. Creating consistency for your body 🔄
Consistency is key. You’ve heard it before because it’s 100% true. If you want a new lifestyle to really stick and make a big impact on your health, you need consistency. Consistency in the way you eat, exercise, and take care of your mental health.
This is where meal delivery services really shine. Portions, ingredients, and nutritional value are always consistent and can be relied on. You know what to expect when you order and how it makes your body feel. There’s no guesswork here!
3. Educating yourself 👨🎓👩🎓
When you’re looking at meal delivery services, make sure you look for companies that can help with education. What do we mean by that? Simple things like blogs, podcasts, and recipes can help provide you with information that will help you be successful in your journey.
For us, it’s all about helping our customers stay educated and empowered to maintain their own goals. We post weekly blogs and recipes to help keep you go beyond the food and start creating your own meals if/when meal delivery isn’t an option.
4. Starting new routines 🧘🏽
Starting a new routine can be tough. In fact, it takes an average of 66 days to start a new habit or routine?
But when you have healthy meal delivery services helping you, it can be easier than you think to build a new healthy routine. Anything that makes the new routine easier to commit to will help make it stick. So give yourself time, don’t be too hard on yourself, and use the tools you have available to make this lifestyle change a success.
5. No excuses ❌
Excuses, excuses, excuses. You’ve probably done it, and so have we. You start with a plan, good intentions, and a goal to start living and eating healthier. But one day, something comes up… an excuse. And that’s when it happens. Your plan, good intentions, and goals go out the window.
Using healthy meal delivery services means there’s no need for excuses because you don’t have to do anything except order your meals, open your door, reheat, and eat! Using meal delivery services, especially at the beginning of your journey, can help you fight excuses and get on the right path for a healthier lifestyle.
It’s safe to say that meal delivery is changing. And if you’re looking to make a lifestyle change and want to build healthier habits, meal delivery might just be your best friend.
