If you LOVE to eat then congratulations! You’re normal! Unfortunately, we tend to eat too much of the wrong things. Conflicting info on what’s good for you, having the time, money, and energy to cook after a long, hard day at work or school is not our idea of a relaxing time. But, there is good news.
Many companies have heard our cries for an easier way to cook or buy our groceries and meals with less thinking on our part. Some of these companies go as far to prep the meals for you while others have put together a grocery list and recipes for you to cook at home. Some take a little more legwork than others but all are very healthy for you. From locally grown vegetables to humanely raised, non-GMO meat. Below we have compiled the top 6 food companies to help you live a healthier, easier life in the kitchen:
