Who doesn’t want a health reset in January? One of the best things you can do is to eat better. But with a massive backlog at the office after two weeks off, who has the time or the energy to sort out the perfect meal every day? That's why us Green Queens are big fans of meal delivery plans as they are the ideal solution for getting your health back on track. Click To Tweet
More reasons we love meal plans:
- They are convenient: no menu planning, no worrying about when and what you will eat when work is super busy.
- They help you get leaner and fitter: no weighing and portioning your food, no obsessing over calorie calculations on MyFitnessPal.
- They save you time: no grocery shopping, no cooking, no cleaning up.
- They save you money: you may think they are expensive but actually, add up how much you spend on coffee shops, snacks, restaurants, supermarkets plus how much all the wasted food you throw out is worth and suddenly, it’s a pretty good deal.
- They save you waste: no worrying about use-by dates, no dealing with shopping for 1 or 2, no sad wilted produce in your fridge.
