Menu Spotlight: Healthy Mix
For the next few weeks, we wanted to get back to basics by breaking down each of our menus to show what they have to offer as well as their nutritional targets.
First up is one of our customers’ favorite: the Healthy Mix menu. This is our most traditional menu with a wide variety of local and regionally sourced lean meats, seafood and produce. This nutritionally balanced menu is pork free but with our a la carte options, you can add any meal of your choosing to your plan. Healthy Mix also can be ordered with “No Beef“ or “No Seafood“ meals. Don’t care for either of those? Then choose our “No Beef AND No Seafood“ option!
Our Healthy Mix meals are low in sodium, cholesterol and fat.
Our Registered Dietitian balances the nutritional content of the meals by the week. This allows us to offer you some of your favorite meals that may be slightly higher in sodium, like the Grilled Cheese Panini with Tomato Soup and the Shrimp with organic Red Mule Farms grits, while keeping the weekly nutrition numbers in line with our targets.
You’ll discover that eating healthy doesn’t mean boring or that you have to deprive yourself of the comfort foods that you love. Our dietitian does all of the nutritional number crunching for you so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy our gourmet meals.
Healthy Mix’s nutritional targets for sodium for our 1,200 calorie plan (3 meals a day) is less than 1500mg per day. While the targets for our 1,800 calorie plan (3 meals a day) is less than 2,000 mg per day.
If you want to go even lower in sodium, try using our Custom menu option. This allows you to choose the meals with the lowest sodium to build your own personal menu.
By meeting the healthy eating guidelines of the American Diabetes Association, the American Heart Association and the American Cancer Society, this menu is perfect for individuals who want to lose weight, maintain weight and are concerned with eating healthy. Individuals with hypertension, cardiovascular disease and diabetes generally do well on this plan.
