8 Best At-Home Grocery Delivery Services— Shop In Your PJs, Stay Safe & Save Money

There isn’t a mother on earth that wants to go to the grocery store anymore, and who can blame us? It was never easy to navigate the grocery store especially with little ones who insist on standing inside your cart, running down the aisles, and pretty much touching every. single. thing. In short, grocery delivery services have never been more needed, but while the supply and demand are certainly there, it’s hard to know which one is best for you. (Hint: You may prefer shopping from more than one.) Each grocery delivery service has a different selection of items and the delivery times can really run the gamut. In some cases, you’ll need a membership to order and in others, it won’t be necessary, but in all cases, there’s likely to be some kind of delivery fee per order unless minimum amounts are met. read more

But the fact is, tequila and its smokier sister, mezcal, have never been more popular outside of their Mexican homeland. The spirits rocketed to the top of the US drinking charts in 2019, and are projected to surpass rum in buying volume in the next few years. And while they both may be mainstream at this point, there’s still a lot consumers don’t know about the distillation process. Here are five essential questions and answers about the fiery desert libations. read more

Clean Eating Snacks

Pre-packaged snacks can be healthy, too! Let’s face it, most of us enjoy snacking. Fortunately, many pre-packaged clean eating snacks exist that satisfy your desire for sweets while supporting your health goals.

These wholesome foods come in all forms such as snack bars, lollipops, gummies, cookies, chips, and more. Plus, they feature clean eating ingredient staples such as natural flavors, plant-based alternatives for dairy and gelatin, healthier sweeteners like stevia or unrefined sugars, and thoughtful recipes that make use of fiber, protein, and balanced nutrition. read more

In fact, at Diet Doctor, our team has been discussing how best to cover new Covid-19 journal publications, especially as it applies to the risk factors of diabetes, insulin resistance, obesity, hypertension, and metabolic syndrome. read more
