eat+LIVE, a new brand of healthy home-delivered meals, will begin shipping to residents in select Midwest and Eastern states this week. Unlike other online food services, eat+LIVE meal solution kits will carry the exclusive Go! Healthy foods label from the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute. Cleveland Clinic dietitians and wellness experts developed Go! Healthy based on rigorous nutrition standards. Products carrying the Go! Healthy label must meet these national nutrition guidelines.
eat+LIVE meals include a careful balance of calories, sugar and sodium levels, but it’s their delicious flavors that make them truly unique. With dishes such as Tex-Mex Chicken and Southern Style Red Beans & Rice, eat+LIVE meals include everyday American favorites with flavorful infusions from regions across the country. The Cleveland Clinic Go! Healthy foods label allows customers the freedom to mix and match favorite entrees, sides and vegetables without the hassle of counting sodium or added sugar.
“eat+LIVE meals are designed as a great-tasting solution to help you establish a life-sustaining, healthy-eating routine — in less time,” says eat+LIVE co-founder Schryse Williams. Williams started the company after struggling to provide her mother with suitable meals after she was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. After that challenging experience, Williams set out to help others, especially those with diabetes, chronic heart conditions and severe obesity.
“The food we eat is vitally important to the body’s ability to recover from surgery, lose weight and to maintain overall health,” said Dr. Michael Roizen, Chief Wellness Officer and Wellness Institute Chair from the Cleveland Clinic. “eat+LIVE meals are an easy and delicious way for people to quickly make dietary changes while learning to eat more nutritious foods.”
Following a diet that meets the Go! Healthy nutrition guidelines will not only help people live better, but it can also help reverse some previously diagnosed conditions. All eat+LIVE meals meet the following Go! Healthy requirements:
1) Minimal saturated fat: Less than 4g of saturated fat for entrees and less than 2 g for sides
2) No trans fat
3) Minimal added sugar: Less than 4g of added sugar for entrees and less than 2 g for sides
4) Minimal sodium: Less than 600mg sodium for entrees and less than 480mg for sides
5) Only 100% whole grain
“Our meals can help a person change their life for the better — with just one phone call,” Williams said.
