Easy Pureed Meals
[Editor’s Note: Gourmet Pureed is a supporting partner of the NFOSD.]
If you’ve been told that you have to change the way you eat and now eat only a puréed diet, where do you go for convenient, healthful prepared meals?
If you are like most Americans you purchase the majority of your food in a grocery store but if you are home-bound or recovering from a medical crisis, where do you turn?
Fortunately, there are online suppliers like Gourmet Puréed.
Gourmet Puréed delivers fresh-cooked, nutritious, ready-made refrigerated puréed meals right to your door. Each meal has a main dish, vegetable and fruit or snack.
Sample of menu choices consists of comfort foods like:
Pureed Fresh, Buttery Scrambled Eggs, Brown Sugar Seasoned Pork Loin Bacon, Pureed Bread and Aromatic Cinnamon Apples

Wonder if they are good? Here is just one of many recommendations:
Gourmet Puréed provides my patients with a nutritionally sound meal that is both appetizing and flavorful. Patients are able to enjoy meals with entrees they find appealing instead of the often “single-ingredient” puree options traditionally offered. The meals taste great and the texture is ideal. Meats have often been an issue both in the preparation and appeal. Gourmet Puréed meat selections have both wonderful flavor as well as texture.
The convenience is one of the greatest appeals of Gourmet Puréed. Having fresh meals that do not require preparation (only heating), allows my patients to enjoy meals without time consuming and tedious preparation. Gourmet Puréed has allowed my patients to enjoy mealtime again, despite their swallowing difficulty. As a clinician, it gives me peace of mind knowing my patients are complying with their puree diet recommendation.
