This popular brand of packaged meals and entrees was developed by Doctor John McDougall, M.D. Dr. McDougall is known as one of the founders of natural, or organic, wellness and is a board-certified internist. He is also a best-selling author who has been writing about the effects and benefits of good nutrition to health. Since he has been focused on this area for over three decades, Dr. McDougall is considered an expert on healthy eating.
Dr. McDougall’s Right Foods® was started 16 years ago. This product line was created because Dr. McDougall and his team wanted to make delicious food that was accessible to all kinds of people. These foods have been served in Dr. McDougall’s program, and he wanted everyone to have the chance to experience it.
Over the years, their operations have expanded, as well as their product selections. Dr. McDougall’s has added 42 meals to its line of nutritious, convenient and delicious entrees. Currently, Dr. McDougall’s take pride in being a leader when it comes to packed natural meals.
Some of the brand’s newer offerings are its gluten-free, low sodium ready-to-serve soups, and Asian entrees. Gluten-free, low-sodium soups are all vegan soups and do not contain cheese, butter or cream. Varieties of this product include Split Pea, Chunky Tomato, Black Bean, Lentil and Garden Vegetable.
Dr. McDougall’s Right Foods® Asian Entrees are considered Asian favorites. These products contain only 200 calories and do not contain salts and heavy oils, as compared to Asian entrees that are offered at restaurants. There are different entrees coming from different countries in Asia. Entrees like Thai, Chinese, Indian and Japanese food are packed and need only water and a few minutes in the oven and these meals are ready to be served. Available varieties of these entrees include Pad Thai, Kung Pao and Teriyaki.
Aside from caring for human health, McDougall’s also cares for the environment as it makes efforts for environmental sustainability. In order to preserve the environment, the company uses paper-based packaging, mainly because paper is biodegradable and renewable and does not contain any Bisphenol A (BPA).
