I’m the first to admit that I’m not too healthy when it comes to food. Don’t get me wrong, I love cooking and always make my meals from scratch but I know I should eat more vegetables and cut down on the chocolate and cake. I always make sure the girls have a healthy balanced diet but don’t seem to have the same discipline when it comes to my own (and my husband’s) meals. I know that eating good, healthy food would give me more energy but I’m easily distracted by chocolate, sugary cereals and creamy pasta dishes.
That being said, I do want to be more healthy so when I was approached by TotalDietFood.com to review their ‘gourmet, healthy meals’ I thought it would be a great way to click-start my healthier eating plan.
TotalDietFood.com is a personalised food delivery service, available throughout London. Their food plans are designed to be incredibly personalised, as well as fresh and of the highest quality. As we all have our likes, dislikes and allergies TotalDietFood.com make sure these factors are taken into account, to ensure each plan is perfectly tailored to the needs and requests to each customer.
How does it work?
Step 1. You have a quick, friendly call with a Senior Nutritional Advisor, where you’ll discuss your personal preferences and requirements. S/he will then calculate how many calories you need to reach your health goal – this based on your current weight, height and plan goal.
Step 2. Arrange dates for your food delivery.
Step 3. A cool bag of fresh, healthy food (personalised to your preference and diet plan) is delivered to your doorstep as you sleep.
This is how I got on…
As I mentioned in the video, for me this would be a ‘healthy eating plan’ not a diet, as I’m not too concerned about my current weight. This is a message I want to pass on to my daughters, there is so much pressure out there to look thin and I don’t want them to ever get that pressure from our home. Eating is a joy and being healthy is far more important than being too thin.
This is not a cheap way to eat, however it is also not unrealistically expensive (£29.99 – £36.99 per day, depending on the plan you sign up for). If you’re busy and don’t have time to plan your meals and make sure you’ve got all the ingredients you need to make a home cooked meal every night, this would be a great option. You have three meals all done and prepared for you and you know it’s going to be healthy, delicious and only include ingredients you’ve approved – so no nasty surprises!
I honestly did enjoy every meal and snack and felt full after each one. It’s also made me realise that healthy food does not have to be bland. This revelation has had me reaching for my Gwyneth Paltrow and Deliciously Ella cook books with a new found enthusiasm.
