Smart Tips to Elevate Your Online Food Ordering Experience

As we’re focusing on rebuilding after Hurricane Ian, many Southwest Florida residents are yearning for a sense of normalcy. Whether you were without power for a substantial period of time or you suffered damage to your home, getting back to routine is what many are striving for in the weeks following devastating destruction. Many residents are faced with the challenging situation of being unable to cook meals for their family, due to power outages or damage to their kitchens, which means ordering out has become a must. If you want to ensure that you’re providing your family with healthy options while you’re waiting on your kitchen to be repaired or power to be restored, we have some smart tips to elevate your online food ordering experience.

Stick to a Balanced Menu

It can be easy to go down the DoorDash or Grubhub wormhole of ordering whatever you’re in the mood for, and while this is perfectly fine on occasion, if you’re relying on these apps to supply your family with food, you’ll want to adopt better habits. For one, stick to restaurant options that offer a well-balanced menu, so that you’re able to enjoy a meal rich in nutrients. Many restaurants will place nutritional information clearly in view so that you’re able to make better choices when it comes to your meals.

Order Before You Get Hungry

Just like grocery shopping, placing your online order before you get hungry will help you make better, healthier choices with your food. This may be the perfect time to meal plan, so that you can find options that fit within your plan, allowing you to stick to a balanced diet and feel your best. In planning ahead and not waiting until the last minute to place your order, you won’t steer off track when it’s time to get back to normal and you’re able to cook in your kitchen again.

Try a Meal Delivery Service

Not having to think about what you’re going to cook for dinner is what makes meal delivery services so popular. Simply order meals off of a menu, pop them into the microwave and you’ve got a meal that’s restaurant-quality without the mess. That’s why we offer our Crave20Go* meal service, packed with delicious and nutritious heat-and-eat meals, available for pickup or delivery, with a menu that rotates multiple times per month! Meal delivery services aren’t just convenient, they also:

  • Allow you to try new things
  • Help you stay on track with nutrition
  • Support the local economy
  • Take the stress and mess out of mealtime

When you want to ensure that you’re providing your family with the highest quality meals while your kitchen is missing in action, meal delivery services come to the rescue.

* Crave2Go is paused briefly while we dedicate the majority of our resources to the American Red Cross, but it will return very soon with a fresh, exciting menu!

Online Ordering Success

You may not be back to normal yet, but remember, we experienced quite a challenging event a few weeks ago, and it may be some time before things are back to routine again.

So, remember these tips to be sure that you’re making the most out of your online ordering experience, and when you finally get back to normal, don’t forget to treat yourself to a meal out, or cook your favorite meal in your own space again!
