Lose weight and feel great (even at middle age!)

Weight loss – and that healthy, glowing, energetic I-can-take-on-the-world feeling that comes with being happy and healthy – doesn’t have to be a wistful thought, no matter what age you might be.

While it’s certainly easier to lose, and keep off, weight when you’re younger, it’s not only possible, but plausible, to do so at any age with a little hard work, dedication, and, of course, healthy meals.

Quality over Quantity

It’s not always about how much you eat, but what you eat. It’s entirely possible to eat an abundance of food, and until you’re satisfied, while still losing weight and feeling amazing. The key is selecting healthy, wholesome, and nutritious food as opposed to things that are high in fat, sugar, or empty calories. Ensure you’re eating healthy meals on a regular basis will help you lose weight, and more importantly, keep it off.

Ensure You’re Getting Protein

Ensure you’re getting enough protein – protein is responsible for our bodies growth and maintenance, especially when it comes to bone and muscle. Needless to say, ensuring we get enough protein (either plant or animal based, or both) is paramount when trying to lose weight. Here at MagicKitchen.com, we not only have an array of mouth-watering, healthy meals and healthy meal ideas, but we have ones chock full of protein too, including meal packs averaging between 19-30 grams of protein per meal!

Indulge on Occasion

It’s okay to have a sweet treat every now and then, as long as it doesn’t become an everyday habit or binge fest. You shouldn’t feel guilty for indulging in your favorite sinful snack, even when on a weight loss journey, as long as you’re still eating healthy meals.

By ensuring you’re fueling your body with the proper nutrients you need through our weight loss meals, your own healthy meal concoctions, or with a combination of both, you’ll be well on your way to feeling – and looking – amazing at any age.


Healthy Eating Made Easier –and More Enjoyable

In addition to making meal time easier, MagicKitchen.com supports a healthy lifestyle by providing a wide selection of delicious, wholesome meals. The menu of low sodium, diabetic, senior and portion control meals that we offer through our MK Meal Menu is particularly healthy.

Our tempting lineup of new dishes includes a Grilled Rosemary Chicken dinner, Chili Con Carne, Pot Roast, Roast Pork, Basil Beef Stir Fry, Seared Flank Steak and Orange Glazed Pork Chops.

Last spring, we introduced a new extension to our MK Meals product line: Dialysis and Renal Meals. We designed the meals for customers who are on dialysis or in stages 3 or 4 of renal failure to keep them well fed during a challenging stage in their lives. We rolled out our initial menus in our summer catalog; among the options, you found Chicken In Wine Sauce, Grilled Salmon, Braised Short Rib, Baked Tilapia, Stuffed Peppers, Shrimp in Garlic Sauce and Baked Tilapia a la Mushrooms. .

This summer, we added Mango Ginger Mahi, Baked Cod with Lemon Caper Sauce, Crab Cakes, Shrimp Enchilada, Citrus Salmon, Chicken & Apple Curry, and Pepper Steak. For people hampered by special diets, taking care of yourself never tasted so good!
