How To Reduce Food Waste

Let's talk about food waste. Every year between 30-40% of food in the U.S. goes to waste as it makes its way through the supply chain—that’s equivalent to two out of five bags of groceries never making it onto your plate. Unbelievable, right? Especially because consumers don't even realize they're doing it a lot of the time. But those random slices of bread and eggs that are a bit past their expiration date add up. Then consider this - food production uses 10% of our total energy budget, 50% of our land and a whopping 80% of all freshwater consumed. In fact, producing the food consumers throw away generates more greenhouse gases than most entire countries do. So as consumers we are not just being wasteful, we're hurting our environment too!

Nutrition Awareness

We talk a lot about the pros and cons of ordering from meal subscription services here at Top Chef Meals – everything from FAQs to how to choose the best service for yourself and family – because we want you guys to have the best meal experience you possibly can, all while getting in great nutrition. We know you've heard it before, but proper nutrition and eating the right foods, will affect your health (positively!) in so many ways. Unfortunately, however, as a nation, we are increasingly eating more processed foods. Our supermarkets are full of convenient packaged foods that appeal to our taste buds, but compromise our nutrition. And it's easy to fall into a pattern of eating fast, convenient, prepared food, especially in our often frenetic lives.

The Best Way to Introduce Your Parents to Top Chef Meals

Helping Seniors enjoy Home delivered Meals

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.

Who's That Chef?

So you've chosen Top Chef Meals to provide excellent, nutritious, delicious, chef-prepared meals for you and your family. Awesome! You won't regret it (trust us). You still might be a bit nervous though so let us introduce you to some of our team and show you where we make your meals. It always helps to put a face to a name and to see what's going on behind the scenes (we think so anyway!).

Paleo? No Problem!

By now, even if you aren't ON this diet, you've heard of the Paleo diet. Right? The word “diet” here is actually misleading because eating Paleo is a lifestyle, something designed to make you look and feel your best. What exactly IS the Paleo diet? The paleo diet is a focus on eating natural, real food that is widely available with little or no processing. In other words, the paleo diet focuses on eating the way nature intended us to eat. That doesn't sound so bad, does it?

Diabetic Superfoods

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.

Prepared Meal Service Qs & As

Even though prepared meal services are on the rise, some people are wary of giving in and trying the delivery experience. Why so distrustful? What is it about prepared meal services that makes people take a step back? Let's take a look, and see if we can clear up some misconceptions.

On Quality: Q:“You're shipping my meals, so what if something shows up broken or ripped and I can't use it? What then?”

Seniors and Appetite

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.
