Meal Prep Delivery – What’s Best For You?

September 3, 2020

Meal Prep Delivery - What's Best For You?While food is a part of everyday life, each person has different needs when it comes to how their food is prepared, what goes into the food they eat, and the ease of eating. As eating at home becomes many peoples norms in the wake of COVID, finding the best meal prep delivery company that fits your needs is important. We’ve got you covered as we walk through the comparisons of meal prep companies when it comes to pricing, ingredients, serving sizes and more. At Fire Dept. Meals, we believe that using us for your meal prep team will alleviate stress, put the best ingredients in your body, and leave you full. Let’s dive in!

Pricing

As we all know too well, heading to the grocery store and grabbing what you think you may need for the week is stressful and sometimes, you can splurge and buy way too much food. One of the benefits of using a meal prep company is you can decide your budget and buy the right amount of food for you.

Meal prep companies vary in pricing, and just like the old saying, you get what you pay for, that proves true in meal prep. Per meal, pricing at Fire Dept. Meals range from $10-$16 depending on what you order. Other meal prep companies range from $5-$10 but when you factor in the important elements like ingredients, portion sizes, and company initiatives, deciding to go with a little bit of a higher priced company may be the best decision for you and your health.

Ingredients

Whether you’re looking for vegan, Whole 30, protein packed, or any other meal choices, what goes into each meal is important. Throughout our research, mostly all meal prep companies buy already prepared pastas, processed meats, and non-organic vegetables. As we know these ingredients are cheaper, and make more sense as a business owner.

For us at Fire Dept. Meals, we’re here to make meals that are locally and organically sourced. Our meats are grass fed, the pasta is made fresh, and all ingredients are never processed.

Serving Sizes

If you’re feeding yourself, or your family, serving sizes are important to know. Meal prep companies typically range from 4-8 oz portion sizes, meaning the 10 meals you purchased will only feed one person per meal. That can get expensive when you’re doubling each purchase.

For us, at Fire Dept. Meals, each of our mouth-watering meals are 8-16 oz to make sure you and your family are getting enough to eat. If you’re on a quest to eat healthier and lose weight, portion sizes are imperative. If your goal is to only eat one serving at each meal, our meals will be perfect for you to split into two meals.
