Kudo Topic: Weight Maintenance
October 1, 2020
I am so very, very thankful for the LeafSide meals.
When I was first introduced to them, I was considering these meals as a clean supplemental meal to my homemade meals, a quick grab to take to lunch if I was running behind. Now, I have literally no kitchen whatsoever. We had to demo the kitchen in the house we moved into and it is taking a while. I am highly attentive to the quality of food I eat as I am maintaining a 100# weight loss for the past 16+ yrs. LeafSide's meals have become invaluable as they are nutritionally sound, Salt/Oil/Sugar-Free upon request (this is HUGE), very cost effective, health supportive, and taste darned great. Having these meals as a means of staying on track has made the stress of the demo and renovation less troublesome and problematic.
I recently had bloodwork done to set baselines as I start with a new physician. My numbers are great and I do believe that having real foods, healthy foods, that are thoughtfully planned to support health and are quality ingredients has contributed to those numbers.

I wish I'd had these meals when I was in my weight loss phase. I have been maintaining my weight loss for over two years. When LeafSide popped up on Facebook, I immediately went to the website and ordered my first box. These meals make planning and counting calories so easy and I have loved every meal! These are surprisingly low in calories for a whole meal and packed with nutrition, so it keeps you satisfied.

Crystal's story (on LeafSide's website) is very inspiring, because I have some of the same issues.
I have many health issues: heart failure, high blood pressure, and diabetes worries. They run in my family and being African American, am more prone to this condition. I've also had a heart attack, and a bypass, and most recently a stroke! I struggle to be healthy: Here it is very hard to do a lot of prep or cooking. I'm familiar with vegetarian and vegan diet, I've always preferred veganism because cheese and milk makes me sick. I think I'm lactose sensitive plus I don't want to ingest food meant for baby cows. 🐮 And I've seen films about what happens to animals used for meat, it 's disgusting!
I'm living in an independent senior facility, but the food is very bad — even the vegetarian options they offer are still full of cheese, fat, and salt, and too many desserts. I live in a small room with my own bathroom, a microwave, and fridge, but no kitchen — which makes meal prep very difficult. And having to wash dishes in the bathroom is no fun.
So your food has been a godsend for me: Easy to prepare, tasty, and no animals harmed! 💚 I also need to watch my weight, especially being disabled and having to use a walker when I can, and a wheelchair. You don't want to be overweight trying to get around on these devices. They are already for me hard to use, It takes a lot of energy! And I am no spring chicken!!
I like the videos too with very helpful information on additional things you can add to the dishes and hints on prep. And things to use for prep!!
Thank you so much for making this available to the public!!

I'm a commercial pilot. On my extended work trips, I always bring LeafSide meals, a collapsible bowl, and a spoon. 🍽️ This allows me to never have to eat the unhealthy airplane and hotel food. Also, I never go to bed hungry. 🙅♂️
Now, because of LeafSide, I'm able to feel good about eating healthy food, which tastes good, while maintaining my ideal waistline. 💪 And, I actually save money on not eating out. 💰 Thank you!

The meals are high in calories, and they are so filling! Being a smaller person who is very "calorie conscious," I still enjoy an entire LeafSide meal per day (usually my lunch at work). It keeps me full and energetic, and I don't need or want to snack between meals. I make dinner a lighter calorie meal (usually a huge daily dozen salad!) I am a pleased customer!
