Meals When You Provide Care for A Loved One

Meals When You Provide Care for A Loved One Twin Cities MNWhen you are raising your kids, meals can be challenging right?   Often you have the support of a spouse to help balance the load.  Now often the spouse may be the person you are caring for, or you are providing meals for a parent, plus managing your own household.   Here are some tips and ideas for making meals and still nutrition.

Research who delivers meals already prepared in your local area, what the cost is for delivery and what meals are healthy.   Jimmy Johns has “freaky fast” delivery as they advertise and they healthy choices.   HyVee has wonderful food that they prepare that can be delivered with a weekly grocery order.   More and more restaurants are working with a delivery service and there are apps such if you have a cell phone it’s an easy process.

Meals on Wheels is a program that has been around for a long time.  I’ve had people tell me that meals are pretty good.  In April you can actually taste their meals at 3 locations in the metro:

Wednesday, April 24: 11:30 a.m. at West 7th Community Center in St. Paul (hosted by Keystone Community Services) – to RSVP call 651-298-5493 by April 17.   Go to for more information.

Delicious meals I’ve recently tried that are very nutritional and tasty are from Let’s Dish.  They are now making meals for pick up and you can order meals for delivery too.   See
