How it works
Meet with a registered dietitian via telehealth
Members work with a dietitian to define health goals and create a personalized plan. We can connect over the computer, phone or through a care coordinator. Then, members get set up on our mobile and web-based app so they have day-to-day support.
Create personalized meal plan
Members choose from thousands of recipes based on the dietary restrictions, preferences, and budget for themselves and their families. They, they create a meal plan and transfer ingredients to their grocery cart.
Deliver food right to your door
Members can order groceries for pickup or delivery directly in the app - Walmart, Amazon Fresh, or Instacart. If they're short on time? They can grab food from a local restaurant with Grubhub and use the "avocado" icon to find healthy options. Members can also access medically tailored meals.
With regular check-in's with a registered dietitian, members stay on track and adjust as they go to maximize results.
