Whether you’re young or old, meal delivery can offer a lot of benefits!

THE STORY: Maybe you’re older and having a bit of trouble getting around in the kitchen or are just less inclined to cook these days. Or maybe you’re a young professional working hard to advance in your career with little time to cook. If either of those describes you, then meal delivery can offer you a wealth of benefits. After all, you can’t forgo eating, no matter how busy you are or how difficult it’s getting to move around the kitchen and cook for yourself.

2022 Senior Care Tech Trends

More and more seniors are able to live at home, instead of with assisted care, these days with the help of technology.

THE STORY: The future is here, and for senior citizens, the future allows for them to take more control of their healthcare and how they live. Particularly with the past two years of pandemic living, seniors have become more accustomed to using technology in ways they might not have before - from video calls to ordering groceries online and more. Couple with a growing hospital-at-home trend in the healthcare sector, this means it’s easier than ever for seniors to continue living where they are rather than in assisted or independent living communities. What else does the future hold?

Introduce Your Parents to Top Chef Meals

Top Chef Meals Is The Perfect Gift For Parents

We have so many happy, repeat customers here at Top Chef Meals (and we're so thankful for you all!), but for every success, there are just as many “picky” parents who have rejected the switch to home delivered meals. Are our parents REALLY that picky or is it something else? While it's true that our sense of taste and smell change as we age, making us like or dislike things differently than we once did, it doesn't make us quite THAT picky. Through follow ups we have conducted with these "picky" parents, what we've discovered is that the real culprit is not the food but the presentation and lack of knowledge on how to successfully heat the meals properly.

Diabetic Superfoods

What are good foods for diabetics?

If you have diabetes, you know how important how much and what type of carbohydrate foods you eat are for managing it. You know the balance between how much insulin is in your body and the carbohydrate you eat makes a difference in your blood glucose levels. But do you know what the power foods are for helping manage your diabetes? There's a wide variety but here's a few to try on for size.

Seniors and Appetite

Taking Care Of Our Parents Better

It can be difficult for many people to see their aging family members and loved ones change over time. Seeing those changes and facing them begins with knowing what to look for and asking the right questions. One of the bigger challenges we face as we age is changes to our appetite. Loss of appetite in seniors isn't an uncommon thing.

But, as you know, eating well is vital for everyone at all ages. Your daily food choices can make an important difference in your health and in how you look and feel. Eating well gives you the nutrients needed to keep your muscles, bones, organs, and other parts of your body healthy. Eating well helps keep up your energy level, too.

Reservations For One

Singles Love Top Chef Meals

Being single isn’t all that bad; you have more freedom and fewer obligations. Dining alone, on the other hand, is a whole different story. Going to a restaurant by yourself can be boring and even uncomfortable. Many restaurants may discourage dining alone, and you may be asked or required to sit at the bar. Even though the stigma associated with dining solo is admittedly not as awful as it used to be, it’s still a situation many singles avoid, and we don’t blame them!
