Maintaining a healthy diet is always a challenge. You need to consider calorie intake as well as getting your vital nutrients and vitamins.
With lockdowns, staying fit and healthy has been difficult. Finding inspiration and shopping for ingredients has been even harder; after a long day's work and endless zoom calls, picking up a pan and cooking yourself something healthy and delicious is not something we have the time for.
That's why we turned to Factor, a company that is making healthy eating easy. They deliver nutritious and delicious food straight to your door, taking all the time and hassle of cooking out of the picture.
Here are five reasons why we love Factor.
1. Everything is Fresh
Healthy eating starts with fresh, nutrient-rich ingredients. But who has time to shop these days? Fortunately, Factor's team of registered dietitians hand-pick every ingredient that goes into their meals, ensuring every recipe is packed with science-backed nutrition. What's more, their meals are never frozen - so when they say "fresh," they mean it.
2. Delish Dishes for Most Major Diets
Factor offers a wide range of cuisines that cater to many specialty diets. With options for keto, plant-based, paleo, low carb, dairy-free, vegetarian and low calorie, they cater to all your needs. The menu changes every week and thus never leaves you bored or tired of the same food. Ranging from recipes like the Green Chili Enchilada Bowl, Grilled Pesto Chicken or Indian-Style Vegetable Rice, its diverse cuisine allows for variation depending on what your taste buds are feeling that day.
3. Lots of add-ons - snacks, juices, shots
We all have those moments of weakness where we look for unhealthy, high-calorie snacks. Eating a well-balanced meal is difficult, but finding good nutritious add-ons is harder. Factor has a wide range of nutritious add-ons, whether it is a cold-pressed juice with lunch or a cheesecake after dinner, all you need to do is add it onto your meal, and it's right at your doorstep to help satisfy you between meals.
4. No Prep, No Mess
One of the biggest struggles people trying to eat healthy run into is time - there simply isn't enough of it. From the grocery store to the kitchen, traditional meal prep requires hours and energy most people can't afford to sacrifice. Fortunately, Factor's team of nutrition and culinary experts do the work for you. Every meal arrives fully-prepared and ready to heat and eat in minutes using the oven or microwave.
5. Restaurant-Quality Taste
While having convenient, healthy meals is great, none of that matters if you don't enjoy the food. That's why Factor's culinary experts work hand-in-hand with their registered dietitians to ensure every meal is packed with Michelin-quality taste without ever sacrificing nutrition. The result? Meals so good, you won't believe they're healthy.
Factor makes sure you eat healthy all day, every day. There is no pressure on deciding what to eat and spending time prepping and cooking. With meal plans ranging from $12.83 per meal for 6 meals to $11.50 per meal for 12 meals, Factor is easy to use and delivered right to your doorstep.
