Mothers with Breast Cancer Can Dine to Thrive with Gourmet Meal Delivery
Date:5/2/2008

LOS ANGELES, May 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Mom was always after you to eat right -- to find meals that were both tasty and good for you. This Mother's Day, return the gift of eating well with Dine to Thrive's gourmet meals that may help mom fight breast cancer. With a menu designed by an Oncological Dietitian paired with a gourmet chef, Dine to Thrive's meals incorporate findings from the latest scientific studies on nutrition and cancer.

Dine to Thrive -- a Los Angeles company -- offers home delivery of evidence-based gourmet meals for people who are fighting cancer or who want to eat right in order to decrease the chances of a recurrence. The World Health Organization says that at least one third of all cancers are due to preventable lifestyle factors, such as diet.[1] Diet can be particularly important for women fighting breast cancer; According to a recent nutritional study, the risk of a recurrence of breast cancer can be reduced by up to 42% by following a very low-fat diet rich in vegetables, similar to that provided by Dine to Thrive.[2]

Dine to Thrive was founded by Wade Armstrong, who was inspired to start his company after watching his mother, a breast cancer survivor, struggle to eat right during and after her treatments. Armstrong said in an interview, "this Mother's Day, I hope I can share our healthful, gourmet meals with women like my mother."

The Dine to Thrive menu rotates weekly, so the company's customers can enjoy a variety of tastes. All the meals, whether traditional American-, Asian- or European-inspired, are prepared using the cutting-edge sous vide method, which preserves nutrients and delivers flavor without extra fat, salt, or chemicals.

Dine to Thrive's menu includes dishes such as spinach-stuffed salmon with julienned vegetables, chicken breast stuffed with brown rice and green onion in a shiitake ginger plum sauce, and even a healthy and delicious turkey meatloaf. These gourmet flavors are ready from your freezer in 20 minutes or less, with no active preparation, minimal cleanup, and no odor while they cook.

"For about what people already spend in a restaurant, now they can easily get the foods that may help them fight cancer in their own home," says Armstrong. At the standard price of $25 a meal, less if you order more meals or more frequent delivery, Dine to Thrive delivers evidence-based meals cooked fresh for you. It's only when orders are placed that the executive chef goes to local markets to shop for produce to make the week's meals. Sometimes this means last-minute substitutions, but it always means the best in natural or organic seasonal ingredients. "Because the meals are both delicious and easy-to-prepare," says Armstrong, "we see them as a gift for mom, her caregivers, and the whole family sitting down to enjoy a home-cooked meal."
