Before you plan that next trip to the fast food restaurant around the corner, you might want to take the time to consider out take home prepared meals. For over a decade, we have found pleasure in providing solutions to the food needs of the good people of Central Vermont. A lot of this good work has revolved around our take home prepared meals.

We believe home meals are important, and here are 5 reasons why:

1. It Saves Time

You could say the true cost of a home cooked meal is the love that you put into preparing it. You’re making a meal for people you truly care about, and that takes time, time which you don’t always have.

That’s why our meals, which are designed to cater to a family of four or more, are geared towards offsetting your busy schedule and taking the load off your family gathering. With our take home prepared meals, you can rest assured that you will never have to cut corners when it comes to feeding your loved ones.

2. It Saves Money

Today, most people don’t give a second thought to the idea of dashing out to a restaurant when they’re hungry or popping open a can to pour out the ingredients in order to consume as food. But this attitude may be more expensive than we realize.

Think about it: family meals are prepared with the whole group in mind, and therefore cut costs, especially as ingredients are bought in bulk. The result is healthier, happier meals, for less money.

Unlike our take home prepared meals which are prepared with your entire family in mind, most restaurants and producers of canned food supply for one person in mind, and charge alarmingly high rates for it.

3. It’s Healthier

76 million people in the United States suffer from food poisoning every year, according to the Center for Disease Control. A huge part of this problem stems from improper handling of restaurant or packaged foods by inexperienced handlers.

Our insistence on local and organic products, as well as gluten free foods, means that you don’t run the same risks with our take home prepared meals as you would with many of the packaged products which people have to settle for nowadays.

4. Balanced Meals

Apart from saving time and money, planning your family’s meals can help ensure balance to what your loved ones eat. The right meal plan is one that provides your group with all the necessary amounts or carbs, protein, fats, and all the essential minerals and vitamins which children and adults need for healthy living.

Our regular menu is tailored to meet the demands of those who are deeply committed to making sure that their families are eating the right things in the right amounts.

5. Brings the Family Together

Family meals are awesome. There are few better ways through which a family can share love and reinforce the bond which they share as a group. Apart from being the perfect way to know how the day went for everyone, eating as a family has been shown to lead to healthier families, less obesity, better performances at school, and less substance abuse within the family. Besides, shared meal taste better—ask anybody!
