The Healthy Pantry

A convenient way to feed your busy family healthy meals.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

The Healthy Pantry meal delivery service provides busy families with healthy meal kits that makes eating meals easy and nutritious.

Co-founded by a working father who felt his health succumbing to the weighty effects of a lifestyle filled with too much processed food, and a professional chef who is also a nutritional consultant, The Healthy Pantry was created to allow families to live healthier and stronger lives with food that's flavorful, nutritious and convenient.

While most meal-delivery programs focus on pre-portioned, calorie-controlled meals, The Healthy Pantry takes a bit of a different approach by preparing food kits for you that you simply add a few ingredients to, prepare and eat.

They have eliminated the time-consuming part of cooking: the shopping, chopping, measuring, and seasoning by placing everything in "meal kits" that take only a few minutes to prepare and are grounded in healthy principles.

There are numerous Healthy Pantry meal kits to choose from:

  • Sampler Paks
  • Dinner Kits
  • Breakfast Kits
  • Snack Kits
  • Weight Loss Kits
  • Heart-Healthy
  • No/Low Gluten
  • Low Sugar
  • Vegetarian/Vegan
  • No Dairy

Focusing on complex carbohydrates, lean proteins and good fats, The Healthy Pantry offers a healthy answer to the dreaded daily question of "What's for dinner?"

PRO
  • Convenient way for the whole family to eat healthy
  • Uses numerous organic ingredients
  • Prep time is limited to 10-40 minutes
  • Offers a great variety of meal kits to choose from
  • Packaged meal kits can be saved and used at a later time
CON
  • Must purchase additional fresh ingredients to be used in each recipe
  • Not necessarily diet or weight loss food
  • Nutrition information is difficult to understand
  • Will still need to cook and prepare other meals as each kit only supplies four-eight meals per week
  • Not a great variety in choice of meals
DIET and NUTRITION

The Healthy Pantry offers a variety of different meal kits to choose from including a custom-made kit that allows you select meals on an a la carte basis. Each kit comes with approximately four to nine meals with all of the meal's dry ingredients pre-packaged and portioned for you. Each meal includes a label which details the cooking instructions, preparation time, nutrition information as well as the items that you need to supply.

Each meal features wholesome food that contains organic ingredients, complex carbohydrates, lean protein, healthy spices and around-the-world dishes.

  • For breakfast, you might whip up a batch of Whole Grain Apple Cinnamon Pancakes (you add the eggs and milk).

  • For dinner, you might feast on wild salmon patties (you supply the eggs and oil) with vegetable quinoa or pineapple meatloaf ( you supply the eggs and lean ground meat) or Indian dal.

  • If you're in the baking mood, you can make banana bread with whole wheat flours or oatmeal raisin cookies.

While the nutrition information is included for each dish, it is not clear how much a portion size is and whether the nutrition information is for dry ingredients alone or the completed prepared meal.

EXERCISE

No exercise guidelines are given.

CONCLUSION

If you're the primary cook in a busy household of hungry healthy eaters, The Healthy Pantry meal delivery service offers a convenient and flavorful way to get dinner (or breakfast) on the table in few minutes.

Unlike many other meal delivery programs that provide you with a full day's worth of diet-friendly meals for an extended period of time, The Healthy Pantry is better for those days when you don't know what to make the family for dinner, since each kit only includes four to eight meals and kits are very shelf-stable.
