November 11, 2011
– November marks National Diabetes Awareness Month, and Meals to Live, the first grocery store line of frozen meals designed for the needs of consumers living with diabetes, will give away 500 free meals to help educate people about the disease that affects nearly 26 million Americans.
Meals to Live offers innovatively packaged, great tasting and convenient options to help people living with diabetes manage their nutritional requirements. With easy-to-read packaging that clearly displays relevant nutritional information on the front, such as fat, sodium and fiber, Meals to Live is a leader in the frozen foods category. It gives consumers a convenient, easy meal option with no guesswork. Five of the eight meal options are also 100 percent gluten-free.
Beginning November 1, the company will give away coupons for free meals, including popular entrees like Chicken Fajita with Santa Fe Rice, Shrimp Jambalaya and Chili Relleno with Chicken and Ranchero sauce, to the first 500 people that like the Meals to Live Facebook page.
"Thousands of Americans are diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes every day, and the nutritional realities they suddenly face can be difficult to incorporate into their routines," said Meals to Live founder and Chief Executive Officer Cole Egger. "Like everyone else, people living with diabetes just want something quick, convenient and tasty that doesn't require exhaustive label reading or worry about their food choices. Meals to Live takes the worrying out of label reading and provides a solution right from the grocer's freezer."
Meals to Live is available in stores across the U.S., including select locations of Publix, Tom Thumb/Randalls, Walgreens, Raley's, Brookshire's, Ralph's, Meijers and Sprouts and may be purchased online at www.mealstolive.com . The suggested retail price for entrees ranges from $3.99 to $4.99.
Meals to Live is the first frozen food line to utilize the Carb Counting system, a guide nationally recognized and endorsed by the American Dietetic Association, to help easily calculate the total number of carbohydrates in each meal. Meals to Live entrees range from 18g to 58g of carbohydrates, are high in fiber and low in saturated fat, trans fat and sodium, which are important considerations for those living with diabetes.
Along with frozen entrees, Meals to Live also offers Glucose Quick Sticks, an easy-to-carry quick-dissolving flavored powder that instantly provides a healthy boost of glucose for those who face low blood sugar challenges.
