While working as an Executive Director in Real Estate Development has many perks, the downside to living such a hectic work life is that I hardly get enough time to focus on other homely activities. I love my work, and I usually do my best to ensure that my performance is absolutely top-notch. This means that I always have to regulate what I eat and exercise daily to keep up my body strength. Work and food have a very interesting connection, and one always affects the other. But being caught up in meetings and the usual stress of a high level job means that what I eat is not always under my control. I can hardly find the time to cook proper meals that would balance the amount of carbs, minerals, vitamins and healthy fats that I would need to be healthy. This is why I am always very picky when looking for eateries where I can have my lunches and dinners.
SFMaverick turned out to be heaven sent for me. This is a restaurant run by the famous chef Scott Youkilis and is located in the 3316 17th Street of San Francisco. Thankfully, it is not too far from where I work. Last week a colleague of mine recommended their Maverick Salad 8.5, and I finally decided to give it a try. The result was more than satisfactory. Each ingredient used was absolutely fresh, and the taste was something to relish. I felt completely refreshed after that meal and I started to try out their other dishes in their menu to see what they really had to offer. Their Spring Vegetable Risotto is to die for! The pasta was well cooked with a slight bite to it, and the cheese was not too strong. I finally decided to make this my favorite eatery to order from. While getting reservations could become a bit tricky as the restaurant is always full of people, they are more than happy to make exceptions for regular customers.
But eating at a restaurant every day can become difficult, especially when lunch hours are often cancelled because of emergency meetings. Eating at the usual cafeteria at office can become quite a bore, and none of their dishes follow a dietary structure which could keep my body at its optimum working condition. This is when I came to hear about Nutrisystem and its effective, clinically tried, diet meal plans. My neighbor has been struggling for months to reduce her post pregnancy bodyweight, and she slimmed down by following an effective weight loss program that Nutrisystem offered. I went to the site http://www.nutrisystem.com/ to learn more about their services, and was pleasantly surprised to see that they did pre-packaged meal deliveries for different diet plans. They even have a unique diet structure for only teenagers. They are also offering exciting Nutrisystem coupons for different packages which means that I can get their meals delivered at a discounted rate!
Nutrisystem is a big advantage for professionals like me who are working almost 24/7 at their office with little time to spare for other activities. Getting pre-packaged meals delivered to my home is a blessing, as I can freeze them for as long as I want, and grab them and go to the office and eat as per my convenience. I do not have to waste my time cooking and packing in meals to ensure that the food stays fresh all day. Nutrisystem packs its food in such an effective way that the ingredients stay fresh and new all throughout the day. I love how convenient it has now become to eat healthy foods with Nutrisystem’s unique meal plans.
One of the reasons it gets easier for me to follow the Nutrisystem diet is because the portions are never moderated and limited, and the taste is never compromised. Most diets focus on starving people and pushing them towards boiled food which could become quite a boring eventually. Nutrisystem on the other hand propagates healthy eating, where they serve pancakes, muffins, oatmeals, lemon bars, waffles, granola bars, and even cinnamon buns for breakfast.
Lunch includes my all-time favorite Bean and Hams soup, Chicken noodle Soup, Cheese Tortellini and Chicken Parmesan Pasta and so much more. Even dinner meals are extremely tasty where customers can get Chicken and roasted vegetables, Chicken pot pie, Chicken Alfredo and other savory dishes. For dessert, I usually love having their Carrot Cakes and Chocolate Brownie sundae. While all these recipes may look quite heavy, the fact remains that each of these dishes are made properly so that they contain low sodium, less low-glycemic carbs and more protein and healthy fats. These meals will provide the right mix of nutrients and essential elements that the body would need to stay strong without harming itself.
Nutrisystem also moderates the portions for each food, but recommends that their customers eat about 6 times a day so that their body does not get weary at work but it can re-energize itself and continue to work perfectly. The food items are also preservative free, which means that they are healthy and organic, without containing any harmful chemicals that could affect our bodies. The best part of following Nutrisystem is that you can always add side dishes of your own, so sometimes I pair my pre-packaged food with some healthy salads from SFMaverick. The combination of different dishes made from entirely organic ingredients gives me a fresh boost of energy and keeps me alert and sharp at my work place all the time.
I would definitely recommend Nutrisystem to anyone who has trouble finding enough time to cook for themselves. It is not just effective in reducing and controlling weight, but is also very essential to maintain a healthy life.
