Prepared meals are better than meal kits: 6 reasons why
In our previous article, we discussed about meal kits and why they have gained so much importance, recently. But are we sure they’re as helpful as fully prepared meals?
Let’s take a step back and give credits when it’s needed.
Meal kits clearly got the point.
Giving the times we are currently facing, many companies started to collaborate with some famous (sometimes also starred) chefs. The chefs would select some of their most famous recipes, the ingredients and they would also set up a brief explanation for customers. Eventually, the “kit” would be put into a refrigerated box and delivered to customers. The final client would then have the chance to replicate a dish and to experiment in his/her own kitchen.
Other companies would just select some healthy ingredients and recipes, put them into a box and give the customer the chance to cook tasty and balanced dishes.
One of the main pros of this new wave is that meal kits allow people to avoid going to the grocery store and wasting time in queues. The customer can choose on the website of the company among several fresh ingredients, all healthy and balanced. They will then be packed and delivered to his/her doorstep.
Why aren’t they the ultimate solution?
Despite those advantages, meal kit cannot be considered as the solution to the core of the problem.
But what is the problem, by the way?
People, nowadays, don’t have time to cook but. On the other hand, people have been changing their habits shifting towards a new and healthier lifestyle. And food has been affected by this change.
Nevertheless, meal kits somehow make people cook and clean it up anyway. What if people don’t have time to do so or what if they simply don’t want to?
In this sense, Nutribees’ fully prepared meals can be your new getaway.
So here you’ll find 6 reasons why our fully prepared meals will completely change your routine (and therefore why meal kits aren’t the solution to these new needs).
1. Save time
Sometimes, meal prep can be a burden rather than a pleasure. Or maybe you love cooking but not every single day and night.Our meals are this: fully prepared, ready-to-eat fresh and healthy meals. They are ready in 2 minutes and you won’t even need to plate them (although we love to plate our Nutribees when we feel fancy).
2. Save money
Getting delivery at the end of a long week is definitely easier than ever with apps that let you click “order again”. But between delivery fees, tips, and delivery minimums, the price can get higher fast. Nutribees meals start at €7.50 per meal, they’re delivered to your door and are ready to eat in few minutes. Plus, the delivery is free.
3. Portion control is incorporated
At Nutribees, we work together with a nutritionist who helps us with the selection of the ingredients. Generally speaking, we use a mix of quality proteins, complex carbs, and healthy fats. With portion control built into nutrient meals, you’ll feel satisfied but stay within your calorie range. The best part is, we don’t forget about our favorite food: we take these delicious comfort-meals and give them a makeover that keeps the flavor but swaps calories for nutrients.
4. Well-balanced meals
We want to offer a convenient alternative to cooking healthy meals. Our meals are preservative-free, chef-prepared and tasty. Plus, our meals are not processed at all and we pay a special attention to seasonal products.
The perfect solution if you want to eat something nutritionally-balanced and delicious but, at the same time, you don’t have time to set it up yourself.
5. You can experiment with flavors
Without any effort, Nutribees allows you to sample meals you could have never tried before, like Spanish Cod and Pil Pil sauce or Chicken Tikka Masala to tease your buds. At the same time you could opt for something else, more traditional, like Pasta alla Gricia or Lasagne (we offer also the veggie version so you won’t feel too guilty).
6. Less stress
Grocery shopping, meal-planning and calorie counting take time and concentration. But you’ve got thousands of unread emails, you’re attempting to work from home, kids are at home, workout at home and wash your hands for at least 20 seconds every minute. Wow. With our prepared meals, once a week you select your favorites (via our website nutribees.com) and then the only decision you’ll need to make is which one to heat up.
