Taking the time to cook at all, much less cook healthy food, just isn’t an option most nights for many people. That’s where the idea of meal prepping comes from: You’re supposed to pick one day or night a week and cook and portion out large batches of food – preferably breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks – to last you five to seven days. It’s supposed to be easier, less time consuming, and cheaper and remove any temptation to order takeout, swing through the drive-thru, or snack from a vending machine.
However, DIY meal prepping can actually be the opposite of all those things. Finding recipes that are healthy, inexpensive, and easy to make can be difficult. Finding recipes that also taste delicious and aren’t time-consuming to prepare is practically impossible. And once you find a recipe that fits all those criteria, you eat it for maybe a week or two before you get sick of it and end up picking up a pizza or ordering Chinese. Those prepped meals in the fridge go to waste, and your money goes in the trash.
That’s where the pros at DuMealz come in. DuMealz is a meal-prepping service that offers healthy, flavorful, portion-controlled meals made from fresh, never frozen meats and produce every week. The menu changes from week to week, so you’ll never be bored by your lunch or dinner and run the risk of craving unhealthy junk food.
DuMealz combats the stigma that food can’t taste great and be healthy at the same time, and they take the guess work out of meal prepping. All individually portioned meals come labeled with calorie counts and macronutrient information, which roughly follows a 40/40/20 percentage breakdown for protein, carbs, and fat. Most of the meals come gluten free, and other dietary modifications – such as Paleo, low-carb, and all-organic ingredients – can be made for a small fee.
DuMealz are convenient for your wallet and your watch. The price per meal gets cheaper the more meals you purchase, and they offer the convenience of location pick-up or personal delivery. Meals can be ordered online at DuMealz.com or over the phone at 844-DUMEALZ.
