A new locally-owned food delivery service has opened, adding to the city’s small but mighty list of meal prep services and healthy take-out options.
Preparing food when attempting to lead a healthy lifestyle can be daunting and time-consuming. That’s one of the reasons Memphis native, BreAnna Boyd decided to launch 15MD Wellness, a meal prep and catering service. Boyd and her team of chefs and health and fitness specialists create an array of weekly, nutritionally balanced meals that can be delivered directly to your front door. Essentially, the goal of 15MD is to make healthy eating more convenient.
“Eighty percent of a fitness journey is nutrition, and twenty percent is exercise. Our meal prep service helps people incorporate wholesome, delicious food into an overall lifestyle redesign. We want to change perceptions about healthful food and provide our customers with entrees and snacks that taste great and help them reach their fitness goals.”- BreAnna Boyd, 15MD Wellness
