Getting meals from 95 Nutrition can make life easier and keep you healthy all at once! Here are five reasons why you should use a meal delivery service.

    1. Ensures a Nutritious Diet

Getting meals delivered gives me everything I need without leaving my kitchen table. Even better, the company helps me choose healthy meals that are great for my lifestyle.

    2. Convenient and Hassle-free

    Trying to fit meal planning into a busy schedule is a hassle. There is something amazing about getting exactly what you want within a few minutes.

    3. Helps With Weight Management

The company will only give me the calories that I paid for when I ordered the meal. I cannot overeat when there is not any extra food on my plate.

  5. How Much is Too Much Protein?

    How Much is Too Much Protein

    Has reading about protein intake, and listening to nutritionists talk about optimum protein consumption left you wondering, “How much protein should I eat?” or “How much protein is too much?” or “Am I completing my daily protein intake?” Trying to figure out how much protein per day in the right amount is critical to our overall health and well-being, can be a real challenge. The popularity of high-protein diets has hit the newsstands and social media feeds of consumers all over the world.


    This is not only because it can be delicious but also because proteins are the building blocks of our systems. You can find bits of protein everywhere in our bodies, like in our muscles, bones, skin, hair, and pretty much any other tissue. There are at least 10,000 proteins that make up your unique body and keep you moving throughout the day.


    Inside every protein is twenty plus amino acids. We cannot store these building blocks. Instead, our bodies make them from complete scratch or by modifying essential amino acids available in food items. We need these food items to make our bodies healthy. These are the critical elements to answering how much protein I should eat.

    How Many Grams of Protein Do I Need?

    Everyone has an optimal level of how many grams of protein per day they should be taking in through food sources. The ideal number will vary depending on your age, gender, weight, fitness goals, and activity level. You need protein as part of a vital biochemical function that helps you grow, develop, and repair any tissue damage. Protein is one of the three "macronutrients" that get tracked with fitness apps, along with carbohydrates and fat.


    Popular diets use protein to ramp up our metabolism and burn more stored fat. That is why you hear so many weight lifters turning to protein powders because they want to burn fat and convert it to muscle in a gym. Howe

  6. What Food is Healthy to Eat for Women's Nutrition?

    What Food is Healthy to Eat for Women's Nutrition?

    The struggle to ascertain the foods and nutrients that will provide you with the most benefit is only getting more complicated. Between organic, free-range, and what feels like thousands of new fad diets, uncovering what food is healthy to eat seems to require more of a college dietary course than a natural selection while browsing your local grocers. So, where one pack of rice may have "health food" written across the packaging, another screams "gluten-free" in bright, bold lettering, and we are left with a lot of choices and not much guidance over what is best.


    So, how do we navigate all of these options? How do we decide which is healthy food meant just for women? We have different needs than men at a biochemical level, especially as we move into our adult years between 30 and 50. The choices we make during these hardworking years will likely have a significant impact on the overall health of our bodies as we age.


    We at 95 Nutrition want to help by offering some well-researched insights into what should be considered healthy foods for a woman's regular diet. We will try to break down all the confusing marketing and advertising gimmicks and stick to the simple methods that have worked for hundreds of years.

    What is Healthy Food?

    Let's make this as easy as possible for you to understand so you will not get fooled by the food fads or workout tricksters trying to sell you another health bar full of sugar. Healthy food gives you the exact nutrients you need to sustain your body's natural well-being and improve your energy usage throughout the day.


    Most healthy food will have a balanced contribution of macronutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, fats) as well as minerals, vitamins, and other microbiochemical factors. What will be a healthy meal plan for you could be very different for someone else. For instance, an older woman from the Northeast may have different needs than a younger surfer from California.

  9. Do I need to workout to lose weight?

  10. Have You Tried a Flexitarian Diet?

    To be honest I had no idea what this was when our chef approached us about curating some new dishes for our menu.

With the right creativity the meals can be fun, full of flavor and very filling.
