We take nutrition very seriously here at Good Measure Meals. The meals adhere to nutrition guidelines encouraged by important health associations including the American Diabetes Association, American Dietetic Association, American Heart Association and American Cancer Society.
Balancing the nutritionals for each meal is a lengthy process. I enter each ingredient, recipe and meal into a very sophisticated nutrition analysis program. During this process, I spend the majority of time balancing each individual meal (ie breakfast) – adjusting portion sizes to hit the nutritional targets. I take a close look at carbohydrates, ensuring that they are consistent from meal to meal. I also look at the nutrition for the whole day (Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner all together) and the whole week to make sure everything is in line with the nutrition targets.
Our chefs weigh and measure every ingredient during the cooking process.
Each portion is weighed using scales.
Paying close attention to the nutritional analysis ensures that the meals are effective for individuals who want to lose weight or are managing diabetes or working to lower their blood pressure or cholesterol.
Nutrition facts are printed on the outside of each container, as well.
