A meal delivery service, like Diet-to-Go, is a great solution. The company features chef-crafted meals that are made with fresh, healthy ingredients and was recently ranked the #1 diet delivery plan by Epicurious. I can definitely see why - I tested five days worth of meals last week and was quite impressed!
There are three plan options to pick from: Traditional, Vegetarian and Low Carb. Within these three options, you can select breakfast, lunch and dinner or just lunch and dinner. You can then further customize your plan by substituting and selecting the exact meals you would like in your meal plan. For example, I'm not a fan of mushrooms, so my meals were all mushroom free! As an added bonus, all sides and condiments are included so the food that is delivered is truly all you need for the week.
The meals arrived in two large boxes - one with frozen meals and another with fresh items, such as fruit. I stored my meals in the freezer until I was ready to eat them, but you can also keep them in your refrigerator so they are thawed and ready to heat and eat!
Diet-to-Go sent me the 1,600 calorie meal plan (there's also a 1,200 calorie plan) and the food was very satisfying! Here are a few pics of my meals:
Blueberry muffin + applesauce + OJ (Greek yogurt not pictured)
Vegetarian Chili + Roll (String Cheese & Pudding Cup not pictured)
Herb Crusted Whitefish + Polenta + Broccoli
Huevos Rancheros + Tortilla + Chicken Sausage
Seafood Medley + String Cheese + Roll (Pudding Cup not pictured)
Here are a few additional favorites that I did not get pictures of because I ate them up too quickly:
Waffles - These tasted a bit like angel food cake and were so delicious that I would eat them every day!
Salmon Burger - I was a bit skeptical when I saw this on the menu but it made for a tasty lunch. I quite enjoyed the pairing of salmon with a mango salsa. Yum!
Italian Chicken - This was by far the most filling meal of the bunch. I almost couldn't clean my plate - but somehow managed in the end ;)
My overall conclusion is a lot of people could benefit from Diet-to-Go. I found that the variety of meals made eating a lot more exciting. Most of the time when I cook something, I end up having to eat the leftovers for the next few days which gets old fast. With this type of meal delivery service, you get something new different every day!
Because I'm sure you'll want to try Diet-to-Go yourself, the company is offering readers 25 percent off their first order. Just use the code "spring25" when you're ready to checkout!
I'm curious: Have you ever tried a meal delivery service? If so, what was your experience? If you haven't tried one, what do you see as the pros and cons of using one?
