January is a terrific time for personal renewal, and often that includes shedding unwanted pounds and adopting a healthier lifestyle. Sound good? Of course it does. Sound realistic? It can be, especially if you hire out the daunting task of cooking and meal prep to someone who knows exactly what they're doing.
Since 1995, Patti Ramsey has been helping Houstonians with discerning tastes enjoy healthy lifestyle cuisine through her company, Epicurean Group.
The full-service catering company — the longest continually operating healthy take-out and delivery service in the city — prepares great-tasting, fresh, and healthy meals and then delivers them to your home or holds them for you to pick up. The menus are changed weekly and include breakfasts, lunches, dinners, and à la carte selections.
But it gets better: Each week's menu is well under 30 percent fat, high in fiber, and seasoned to perfection. There are vegetarian, heart-healthy, and low-carb options, too.
To help make sure you're filling up on the right kinds of food, each menu also contains three to five servings of fruits and vegetables. The meals are ready to eat right out of the box or after some simple re-heating, meaning that even the busiest among us can make time for happy bellies — and that includes families. Imagine the daily stress of what to fix for dinner: gone.
If you're only chowing down on a few Epicurean Group meals a week, the company still has your back with other suggested options, to ensure you only consume either 1,200 or 1,800 calories per day.
Need to feed a crowd? Epicurean Group also provides full-service catering, covering everything from the food and beverage to the staffing, space rental, and entertainment. If you thought they made your day-to-day life easier, then just wait until you experience their luncheons, boxed lunches, cocktail parties, dinner parties, or receptions.
Browse the available meals at Epicurean Group's website, then make sure to have your orders in by 10 am Friday morning. That next Monday morning, either swing by Epicurean Group's office in River Oaks off Memorial or await delivery to your door. It could not be easier to eat better in 2018, and your taste buds will agree.
