MIAMI (CBSMiami) — They say health is 30-percent gym and 70-percent kitchen. You can work out for hours a day but you need to make sure you are eating well to see results. But many of us don’t have the time to cook three healthy meals a day so that’s where Catered Fit comes in.
Catered Fit lives up to its name. It’s a catering company that works to keeps its clients fit.
“The only way it could be fresher is if you cooked it yourself but unfortunately in the world we live in today, especially in America every one works, Mom and Dad work, everyone is working more hours,” explained Adam Friden, the creator of Catered Fit.
His team takes on the task of cooking for you.
Here’s how it works: Choose a menu, decide which best suits your goals.
Call them up and order from weekly or even monthly meal plans and then open your door to fresh meals delivered daily.
“Our country as a whole, in the past 10 to 15 years, has taken a wrong turn fast,” said Friden.
During the past two decades, there has been a dramatic increase in obesity in the United States.
One in three Americans is obese. An adult who has a body mass index of 30 or higher is considered obese. That means for a person who is 5-feet 9 inches tall and 203 pounds or more, is considering obese.
Catered Fit offers five different plans: Vegetarian, Paleo, Pescatarian, Athlete, and the Smart Plan, which is great for families.
“If you don’t have the time to work 40 or 50 hours, take care of a family and cook, then you would go with say the smart plan,” explained Friden.
When CBS4’s Vanessa Borge visited the Catered Fit kitchen, the Smart Plan consisted of cranberry and nut chicken salad, served with a scallion
Tabbouleh salad and cherry tomatoes, hearts of palm and green olives.
Freshness is key for this company.
Each day a truck comes in and the meat and produce is cleaned, prepped, cut, packaged and is out.
Catered Fit take on the work load to give you time for what matters most, your health and your family.
“Our lives turn into work, work, work, no time for each other we are changing that as well,” said Friden.
There are a number of other catering services that offer the same service.
The meals range from 7 to 8 dollars a meal depending on the meal plan.
