Healthy Eating and Nutrition

Everyone wants to eat healthier, but no one has the time to track down ingredients and create three healthy and nutritious meals a day from scratch. Many of us seek out a healthy eating plan in order to make our lives easier.

With Balance Box, you get delicious, ready-made food delivered straight to your door. Each day has its own nutritionally-balanced and calorie-controlled healthy eating plan designed by expert nutritionists, helping you lose weight the easy (and tasty) way.

We’re going to explore some of the amazing benefits healthy eating will bring to your daily life. Then we’ll look at some of the healthy meals you could find in your very own Balance Box.

The Benefits of Healthy Eating

It’s impossible to lose weight and stick to a healthy eating plan without knowing why you’re doing it. There are loads of benefits to eating healthy food, all of which will motivate you to stay on track.


Good for the Body

This is the most obvious benefit to improving your health, because it produces results you can see. Healthy eating reduces your calorie intake and cuts out fattening carbs, leaving you with a noticeably trimmer figure. That means more energy to help get you through your day.

You’ll also lower your risk for high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart disease and certain types of cancer, not to mention those annoying aches and pains.

Good for the Mind

Healthy eating is good for the mind as well as the body. It clears your head, making you feel clean, refreshed and accomplished. Healthy food also makes it easier to sleep at night, lowering your risk for sleep apnoea, a common night-time breathing disorder associated with being overweight.

Best of all, successfully sticking to a healthy eating plan will motivate you in other areas of your life. Whether it’s breaking a bad habit or trying something new, you’ll have proven to yourself that you’re up to the challenge.

For many of us, the problem isn’t finding the motivation – it’s finding the time. Whether it’s the kids, work or a million other things to get done before bed, there just isn’t enough time in the day to prepare three healthy meals from scratch.

That’s where Balance Box comes in. Expert nutritionists prepare three ready-made meals a day for you, which are delivered directly to your door. Sticking to a healthy eating plan has never been easier!

Balance Box makes all of this achievable without disrupting your daily life.

The real question, of course, is “how does it taste?” Here are some sample healthy meals that you could find in your very own Balance Box.
