    Healthy Meal Deliveries

    One of the most difficult aspects of weight loss and/or achieving good nutritional intake is the time it takes to research, create menus, shop, prepare and cook the food! I am frequently asked by busy people for recommendations on delicious and nutritious food delivery programs. We scoured the globe and tried many. These came out on top. Terrific for vitality, weight loss and ease, these food delivery services help manifest a specific short term goal or support you if cooking is not your thing.

    Love,

    The Food Program by Tracy Anderson, LA

    

    My business partner Tracy Anderson has launched her food program, developed by one of our favorite chefs. It's amazing for anyone looking to lose weight, reset bad eating habits or just eat really well on a busy schedule. The ingredients are super-quality and fresh (local and organic, whenever possible) and blast-chilled right after preparation to lock in key nutrients. With a special emphasis on sustainable weight loss, the meals focus on high-nutrition-to-calorie foods to keep you full and satisfied longer. Delivered six days a week for a complete seven days of food, it’s a super easy way to change the way you eat for the better.

    Sample Menu
    Here’s an idea of what you’ll get on The Food Program. The menu includes some lean protein but there's a Vegetarian Plan as well.

    Breakfast
    Tracy’s Wellness Shake

    Snack
    Cheesy Kale Chips seasoned with nutritional Yeast, Himalayan sea salt and fresh cracked black pepper

    Lunch
    Large Greens Salad: Mixed greens, tomatoes, pumpkin seeds, julienned carrots, fresh ginger

    Sweet Potato Bites

    Dinner
    Salmon Burger with Yogurt Dill Topping
