Dietlicious is an Australian company that specialises in home delivered healthy gourmet meals. I blogged about their 5 day cleanse a couple of years back, and was recently contacted by Dietlicious a few weeks ago about reviewing another one of their meal plans. It couldn’t have come at a better time- Phil was working interstate in the coming weeks and I was facing the prospect of cooking for one for an entire fortnight (realistically eating out more often than not).
I tried the 1800 calorie 7 day menu – which is designed to provide a healthy daily calorie intake for an average male (or a greedier than average female). I was delighted with how tasty and interesting the menu was- with wholesome breakfasts like Rye toast with hummus; hearty dinners like Arabian beef with sweet potato, tahini and almonds with side of herb couscous; and yummy smoothies and nibbles in between. My time-poor friend Jeff told me that he ended up ordering a 7 day meal plan after I told him about it)- he said everything was delicious and surprisingly filling.
It works well as a meal plan for busy individuals who want a balanced diet, and also works well as healthy ’emergency’ meals to be kept in the freezer.
A couple of important things to note with these meals- you will need adequate freezer space for the 7 day meal plan. I couldn’t fit everything in my smallish freezer and ended up thawing 2 days worth of food in the fridge to begin with. Unless you have a humungous fridge don’t order a 7 day meal plan for two people. Also- don’t make my mistake of putting the veges in the freezer (I didn’t read the clearly marked instructions on the front of the packet)
