In May of 2018 we were happy to share Crystal and Jeff Lister’s Healthy Bites Meal Prep business with greater New Bedford. The inspiration for the entire enterprise came from Crystal’s own weight loss story: she was sick and tired of being overweight and decided to do something about it.
Her change was dramatic enough that all her friends and family took note and began to ask questions. When she began to describe the meals that she was eating and started to show pictures of these meals, people became very interested and wanted to know if she could share the recipes or even make some for them to try.
Here was a way that she could help others achieve the same physical transformation and well-being, particularly those who didn’t know where to start.
Sadly, the Healthy Bites Meal Prep will be closing their door due to the hit they took during COVID and recent hyperinflation. In a messaged posted to their website and social media accounts, they said,
“Dear Valued Customers & Friends, we wanted to start off by saying thank you for the support and loyalty you have shown us for the past 8 years.
It has been an honor to be your go-to for everything healthy and delicious. With that being said, we have made the difficult decision to close our doors by the end of the year. Our last day will be December 22nd, 2023.
Since Covid, it has been such a struggle for the restaurant industry, and unfortunately, it has only gotten worse with inflation. We have learned so much from each and every one of you and value all the lessons we will take away.
Again, we would like to say thank you to everyone who has ever passed through our doors. It has truly been the best journey, and we look forward to our future endeavors. Crystal & Jeff.”
