Whatever you do, don't call bistroMD meals TV dinners. Name-brand old-school frozen dinners just can't hold a candle to bistroMD's chef-prepared, responsibly sourced ingredients like native-caught seafood, rBGH-free beef, hormone-free chicken, and vegetables from local family-owned farms.
Husband and wife team Ed and Caroline Cederquist aka The Foodie & M.D., were in your shoes as busy professionals before starting bistroMD. It was a constant challenge for them to keep the pounds off preparing great-tasting meals while not relying on the same uninspired rotation of dishes week after week.
Let's face it, bagels for breakfast, sandwiches for lunch, and dinner mainstays like mashed potatoes, meatloaf, and multiple variations of pasta get old quickly. This is where many of us fall off the wagon. Ubiquitous fast-food outlets seduce us at every turn with convenient new flavor experiences at pocket-change prices. Our waistline and health suffer.
BistroMD backs you up during these moments of weakness with their flash-frozen microwave meals. In a marriage of art and science, Ed tinkers in the kitchen with new flavor combinations and then shares the results with Caroline, a practicing M.D. for more than 20 years, along with a team of award-winning chefs and registered dietitians. They put his creations to the test, ensuring they have just the right balance of complex carbohydrates, whole grains, and fiber along with lean protein and healthy fats. Never any fillers or MSG. And since each meal is flash-frozen, they aren't salty.
Even though bistroMD sells in quantities of either five or seven days worth of meals each week as a long-term weight loss program, you can also simply place your order on hold allowing for more sporadic shipments... just enough to keep your freezer stocked. The best part is you aren't locked into the same limited rotation of meals each week. You can select from more than 200 possible menu variations to match your cravings.
I found that even if you don't eat these servings for every meal, they are great for healthy lunches at the office or provide a hearty breakfast even when you barely have time to make coffee. It's no joke that directions on every box suggest serving the food on a plate rather than the microwaveable trays. The visual impact not to mention the flavor is sure to rival what you've come to expect in your favorite restaurant.
