Importance of Different Meal Options

Food is fuel for the body; however, the truth is it is so much more. It’s a glue that connects families, cultures, and centuries. People of all time periods have gathered around food to bond, celebrate, mourn, tell stories, and create priceless memories. For these reasons, food choice plays an essential part in our emotional well-being. LifeSpring Home Nutrition understands the importance of different meal options and variety for you and your loved ones.

Personal Preference

As stated by Frontiers in Psychology, “Craving food, i.e., perceiving an intense desire for specific food, is a common experience in healthy persons; hence, it is not limited to an exaggerated or pathological urge to eat but is also an important part of normal eating behavior.”

It is normal to like certain foods more than others, as everyone has unique responses to the smell, texture, and taste of foods. Even genetic, social, and environmental factors play a role in our perceptions of certain meals. Life is too short to ignore your food preferences. You deserve to honor your physical and mental hunger safely and healthily. LifeSpring Home Nutrition works closely with an on-staff registered nutritionist to create delicious and nutritious meals.

Cuisine and Culture

The symbolic power of food decorates the various parts of the world. As people travel and time progresses, recipes are naturally passed from place to place and generation to generation. With 75% of the staff bilingual in Spanish and English, LifeSpring Home Nutrition appreciates and understands the importance of cultural identity and expression.

Meal Options at LifeSpring

LifeSpring Home Nutrition offers a wide selection of healthy, delicious meals for anyone with or without dietary restrictions. Simply place an order on the website and have your food delivered right to your door. Whether or not you require or prefer a unique diet, countless nutritious meals are waiting for you. You can order your meals your way with the customized meal preparation process.

Medically Tailored Meal Options

With the insight and guidance of a registered nutritionist, LifeSpring Home Nutrition was the first to create, prepare, and deliver medically tailored meals in California. Medically tailored diets support those with health conditions that require specialized meal plans. Here are just some of the particular health concerns supported by LifeSpring meals:

  • Heart Conscious: To promote heart health, a diet that is lower in saturated fat and sodium and higher in fiber is recommended. A heart-healthy diet incorporates a wide array of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and healthy sources of protein. Try LifeSpring’s succulent shrimp over fettuccine pasta with peas in a light, creamy Alfredo sauce made from scratch.
  • Diabetic: Someone struggling with diabetes might consider monitoring their carb intake to maintain adequate blood sugar levels. Begin your day with a classic American breakfast: fluffy omelet, hash browns, and turkey sausage.
  • Lower Sodium: People battling health complications such as high blood pressure may benefit from reducing their sodium intake. Explore delicious options such as beef simmered in a house-made Red Burgundy Wine Sauce served with egg noodles and asparagus.
  • Renal: To slow or reduce kidney damage, it is important to regulate sodium, phosphorus, and protein intake. Safely enjoy your favorite comfort foods like pot roast, mashed potatoes, and carrots made with our exclusive gravy recipe.
  • Brain Health: Proper nourishment can support individuals in recovery from substance use disorder (SUD) as they heal their body and mind. When struggling with addiction, the body is unable to process tyrosine, which is necessary for the production of dopamine and norepinephrine. Fish and poultry contain this essential amino acid, enabling these protein sources to enhance your mood and well-being. Fuel your brain with pecan-crusted tilapia filet with broccoli cuts and brown rice.
  • Surgery Recovery/Wound Healing: Bodies require adequate amounts of vitamins, minerals, and nutrients when fighting to heal serious wounds properly. A healthy diet provides the necessary fuel to recover quickly and completely from injuries and illnesses. It is essential to eat a balanced diet that includes an assortment of whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and protein to support healing. Try the honey-glazed chicken breast served with grains and a delicious blend of broccoli, pineapple, bell peppers & onions.

Lifestyle Meal Options

For some, a specific meal plan is not medically required but simply preferred as a lifestyle choice. LifeSpring Home Nutrition supports those who choose to avoid or emphasize certain foods in their diet. According to MedlinePlus, following a vegetarian diet can lower blood pressure and reduce the risk of heart disease or type 2 diabetes. Nevertheless, “You need to eat a variety of foods to get all the calories and nutrients needed for growth and good health.”

It is essential to find other sources of nourishment if you choose to avoid certain foods. There are plenty of ways to consume vital nutrients such as protein without eating animal products. For example, beans, nuts, seeds, and whole grains are rich in protein.

Whether you are looking for pescetarian, vegetarian, or vegan meals, LifeSpring Home Nutrition has delicious choices for you. Start off your morning with hearty oatmeal, peaches, and almonds. Easily grab a spaghetti marinara meal to heat up for lunch at work. Then, for dinner, cozy up with a warm bowl of white bean and kale soup.

Ethnically Sensitive Meal Options

Everyone deserves a taste of home, no matter where home may be! LifeSpring Home Nutrition recognizes, respects, and values your needs, including your freedom to honor your cultural and religious views. We are here to assist you on your nutritional journey. Don’t hesitate to express your needs so we can support you as best as possible.

Food is more than simply nutrition; it connects and unifies people, places, and periods of time. Every individual is on their own unique journey and deserves to have meals that honor their personal and cultural preferences. Whether your diet is a lifestyle choice or a medical requirement, LifeSpring Home Nutrition has meal and snack options to fit your needs. The individualized ordering process allows you to have your meals your way. Having choices is crucial to mental well-being, especially when it comes to nourishment.

I had a catastrophic event requiring a long hospital stay and at discharge my HMO offered Lifespring meal services. Initially, I was offered a puree diet and then as I improved a regular diet. Staff were kind, patient, and their supervisor, Christina was extremely accommodating. This is an amazing company who goes the extra mile to ensure patients receive their meals promptly. The food is delicious with a variety of meals. I would highly recommend Lifespring.

Balanced meals excellent customer service. Thank you
I've been receiving Lifespring meals for the past several years. I find them to be fresh, convenient, and delicious! The meals are both balanced and nutritious, and, because they are prepared fresh, and then flash frozen; all one needs is a microwave! Delivery is prompt and courteous, and if ever you want to make a change, the friendly office staff is available by phone. Thank you, Lifespring! 🤗😘
