Atkins Made Easier: Low-Carb Recipes and Ingredients Can Be Delivered to Your Door

October 12, 2016

Living a low-carb lifestyle takes commitment. The results—decreased hunger and cravings, weight loss, increased self-confidence, plus numerous health benefits—are well worth it. But I will be the first to admit that committing to a low-carb lifestyle means learning how to plan and prepare low-carb meals and snacks, and make healthy low-carb choices at restaurants and social functions. Fortunately, Atkins provides a variety of options that make sticking with a low-carb lifestyle much easier. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve relied on my favorite Cashew Trail Mix Bar whenever I need a quick and convenient low-carb snack, especially when I’m traveling. I’ll sip on an Atkins shake when I don’t have time to make breakfast, and I’ll heat up a frozen meal for a low-carb lunch or dinner in minutes. And I really do enjoy cooking, because there are so many delicious low-carb recipes to choose from, although sometimes with my busy travel schedule, I don’t always have time to hit the grocery store for the ingredients. But now there is a new solution.

Atkins has recently collaborated with Chef’d, the first and only online meal kit marketplace, which means that you can now have quality ingredients for some of your favorite low-carb recipes delivered right to your door. Thanks to these easy recipes and step-by-step instructions, you can whip up a delicious low-carb meal in minutes. When you visit Atkins.com, you will be able to choose from a variety of low-carb meal kits; you can order a la carte or as a recurring meal plan, delivered to your door within 24 to 48 hours. Shopping and meal planning takes time, but this new option eliminates that guesswork so you can take the time to enjoy homemade recipes made right in your kitchen. Even better, there’s no commitment or membership fees. You can order Atkins fresh meal kits as often or as little as you’d like, depending on your schedule. The launch will include 20 Atkins recipes including Zucchini Chicken Alfredo, Chimichurri Steak and Cauliflower Mash and Maple Mustard Glazed Salmon and Asparagus, among others.  The prices range from $10 to $18.50 per serving, and the offerings will expand to include additional recipes later this year.  For more information, please visit http://www.chefd.com/pages/atkins
