Services And Options Your Meal Prep Service May Offer

Meal prep services can make it faster and easier to eat at home. It's nice not to have to slice veggies or trim meats before making a meal. To make things even better, many meal prep services offer some additional services or options that you may not know about. See whether your favorite meal prep service offers some or all of the following options.

1. Nutritional Consultations

Everyone's nutritional needs are different. As such, some meal prep services are now giving customers the chance to have a consultation with a dietitian before ordering their food for the week. The dietitian can talk to you about your health and lifestyle, and then they can give you a better idea of what you should be eating. This is a great way to make sure the foods you're ordering are meeting your dietary needs. Or, if your doctor has given you specific dietary recommendations related to a diagnosis, you can pass this information on to the dietitian — and they'll recommend foods offered by the meal prep service for you to order.

2. Allergy-Friendly Subscriptions

If you have a food allergy, then you won't want to order the foods you're allergic to. But often, you need to be even more careful than this. For example, if you are allergic to peanuts, you may not want to order other foods that were prepared in the same kitchen as peanuts. Some food prep services are addressing this issue by offering specific, allergen-free subscriptions for clients. If you sign up for this option, all the foods in your order are prepared in a kitchen that's free from common allergens, like peanuts, gluten, and eggs.

3. Vegan and Vegetarian Options

Vegan and vegetarian diets are becoming more common as people realize there are not only health benefits to this diet, but also environmental benefits. If you eat plant-based, you can likely find a meal prep service that caters to your needs. Some may rely only on whole vegan foods, while others may incorporate options like mock meats. So, take a look at the foods list before ordering to ensure you're ordering things you'll like.

Meal prep services continue to innovate and offer more options for clients. Look into the services and options above. If any of them sound like they would be beneficial for you, consider signing up for them and making better use of your meal prep service.
