About Diabetes Diet Home Delivery Services

Anyone who is unable to spend time preparing healthy, balanced diabetic meals – or who does not have a family member to do so – should consider a diabetes-diet home-delivery service.

For many diabetics, controlling blood sugar levels is a difficult and complex problem. This is especially true for older adults who may have other health issues, such as heart disease.

Tasty Meals without the Worry

Of course, it can be expensive to have your meals prepared and delivered by a specialty service. It helps to keep in mind that it costs a lot of money to go to the grocery store and buy healthy foods as well. Eating healthy meals with the proper portions and a balance of carbohydrates, protein, vegetables, fruits and fat is the best way to control your diabetes. Having meals delivered also eliminates the need to work with a dietician or nutritionist as you learn about which foods are healthy and which to avoid. You may not be able to travel easily, depending on your general health. Life can be much easier when you eliminate shopping, cooking and clean-up from your weekly routine.

When you order from a delivery service, you will probably have many choices of entrees from which to choose. One company sells packs of diabetic-friendly
meals that contain seven or 10 complete meals, or you can order a meal individually. You can expect to pay about $12 or $13 for individual meals, but each entree is prepared under the direction of a dietician. Each meal also contains reduced sodium levels and controlled portion sizes. Warming the meal in the microwave is usually the only preparation you need to do.

Sugar-Free Desserts

Diabetes management is easier for many people when they do not prepare their own food. In the case of desserts, you can order Dutch apple pie, chocolate cake or brownies that are sugar-free. Taking one frozen dessert out of the freezer requires less self-control for many people than making a pan of brownies at home and eating additional portions that look so tempting each time you walk into the kitchen.

Delivery throughout the U.S.

One company will deliver to every state in the U.S. by ground delivery using FedEx or UPS. Meals, snacks, soups, breads and desserts arrive frozen. Food items arrive at your doorstep in cardboard boxes with customized coolers and vacuum-sealed meal pouches. A dry ice bag is placed on top of the food, which is then covered with a customized cooler lid. When you order from a delivery service, be sure that the food you are ordering is specifically made for individuals with type 2 diabetes. Some websites offer low glycemic food, but these portion sizes and sodium levels may not be appropriate for people with diabetes.
