Why Local Meal Prep Beats Homemade Meals

Let’s get one thing straight: homemade meals can be great. They can be whatever you want them to be, and you can prepare them according to your exact dietary restrictions. Plus, they can be an excellent option on cheat days when you really just want that big bowl of comfort food.  

Still, in many ways, local meal prep can be even better than homemade meals. At Just 4 You Meals, we come up with healthy meals delivered to your door (or a local pickup site) that can perfectly match your needs when you’re trying to lose weight or bulk up during training. And we can help you succeed in ways that homemade meals can fail. Here’s how we can make your life easier and make sure you’re eating healthier.

You Don’t Have To Make Your Grocery List

There was probably a time in your life when making a grocery list was no big deal. You either made whatever you wanted or just wrote down “14 Tombstone pizzas.” Who knows, maybe you didn’t even make a list and just grabbed whatever you wanted. That usually meant a lot of frozen, ready-to-eat meals...and you probably didn’t have any need to read the labels first.

That can all change when you’re on any sort of specific diet. Suddenly you have to worry about every ingredient, whether you’re trying to cut out fat, calories, carbohydrates, or salt. Not only do you have to research recipes for your particular dietary restrictions, but you also have to read the labels for nearly every item you pick up.

When you work with Just 4 You Meals, you don’t have to make a grocery list. All you need to do is decide which meals you’re interested in from our weekly list, and you can get fresh meals delivered that are guaranteed to be healthy. You can do all of this online, so that...

You Don’t Have To Fight the Crowds

We acknowledge that we shouldn’t complain about going to the grocery store. After all, in just an hour we can gather all of the food we need for an entire week or more, and the variety of food available to us is greater now than at any other point in history.

All the same, grocery shopping can be annoying! Most people go on the weekend, and if you’re one of them then you have to fight the crowds. Sometimes you’ll spend as long in line as you will putting all of the food into the cart. It’s also the time that you’re likely to find empty shelves for items that are on sale.

Instead of dreading making the grocery list and getting anxious about fighting the crowds, wouldn’t it be a lot easier to have healthy meals delivered to your door? Of course it would! Just choose your meals from Just 4 You Meals and you’ll spend a lot less time at Publix.

There’s another reason to use local meal prep instead of going to the grocery. When you use our healthy meal delivery...

You Don’t Have To Avoid the Temptations

Grocery stores are designed to get you to buy more than you need. As you’re heading from the produce section to the fresh fish, they’ll put a display of chips and pre-cooked bacon in your way. The relatively healthy canned green beans are right next to the fried onions. Health advocates used to say “shop the perimeter,” because you’d find the freshest products along the outside of the store. Grocery stores heard that too and moved the bread, beer, cheese, and whipped cream to the perimeter!

For some people, shopping at grocery stores isn’t difficult. After all, if you can avoid the temptation of chips and ice cream for just that one hour, they’re not going to be in your house for the entire week. But for many of us, just walking down the aisle of chips is enough to make us slip from our healthy eating intentions.

Walking up and down the grocery store aisles introduces us to new items that we never knew existed before, but now we must have them! It’s easy to fail even when trying to pick healthy snacks. Dark chocolate-covered mango? Sounds healthy! Three pounds of almonds? Yes, almonds are healthy, but portion control can be incredibly difficult to adhere to when they taste so good!

When you work with Just 4 You Meals as your local meal prep service, you don’t have to walk past more than 45,000 items (the number of products in an average grocery store) just to get the few items that will actually feed your body properly.

Portions Can Be Hard To Get Right

Portion control is, perhaps, one of the most important things to watch for when it comes to diet meal delivery. Unfortunately, most recipes are difficult to cut down to the amount you need in order to meet your dietary goals. Many of us who make too much simply end up eating it instead of putting the leftovers in the fridge. Just one more bite. And another. And...it’s gone.

The fact is, eating healthy for your needs isn’t always the best option for everyone else in your household. What you’re eating might not be what others want to eat, because your food might be blander. How can you avoid this problem and make everyone at the table happy? Well...
