In an ideal world, we’d all cook our food from scratch. But the reality is, for most of us, that doesn’t happen everyday. When we’re working with patients in the office, we hear a lot of them say that the fast paced NYC lifestyle impacts their time and bandwidth to not cook any of their meals at all. The problem with this is that most restaurants use poor quality oils, such as soybean and canola oils, and use low quality ingredients, such as non-organic meats and farm raised fish. If you’re just transitioning to a cleaner diet or on the Be Well Cleanse, using a food delivery service can be quite helpful, especially for those with a busy schedule.
