We at Blossom Foods are extremely passionate in our mission to create Puree, Ground, and Diced Meals to those that, for whatever reason, have been prescribed this diet level. We hope to have our customers continue to enjoy the independence and joy that mealtime has, and will continue, to mean.
Our number one goal is to eliminate the perception that Pureed Food is, and has to be, mushy, not “real“ food. Puree meals are often referred to as “beige balls of mush.” Yes, we’ve heard that more than once. We also don’t want adults on a puree menu to think of it as the “return to baby food.”
If we had a movie camera to tape reactions to those that we ask to sample our pureed food, we would have a wonderful movie. The look and reaction of, “no way!” to “oh wow” makes us incredibly proud and happy. To provide delicious and nutritious pureed food that is both enjoyable and nutritious is what we are all about! Your reactions are priceless and appreciated.
Sue and her colleagues have evaluated and treated adults in acute care, rehabilitation facilities, skilled nursing homes, and as outpatients, They have evaluated and treated hundreds of patients diagnosed with swallowing problems (dysphagia) or noted having difficulty with certain food textures. Their tasks also included educating families and loved ones to the world of puree, ground and soft chopped meals.The reality was they were not able to purchase these foods and often found themselves with the tedious task of pureeing or grinding their food. They also found it frustrating to not have the desired meal plan that they wanted and humbled at the roar of the blender preparing their meal. Blossom Foods commitment is to take away this tedious task and bring the pleasure of eating back to the table. That there were no good answers as to how, what, or the where to purchase pureed, ground or chopped meals, Blossom Foods was created.
Such enticing meals as pot roast, simmered chicken in gravy, chicken enchilada, stuffing, spinach, butternut squash and multiple desserts are only limited by your having to choose which combination to put together. Pureed, ground and chopped meals are to be eaten and enjoyed!
We try every pureed item we put on the menu. If we don’t like it, we don’t add it (goodbye corn beef hash).
