This week, I was given the opportunity to test Diet-to-Go. Diet-to-Go is a food delivery service that can help you stick to your New Year’s diet resolutions.
Since it’s hard to keep track of calories, grocery shop and cook, Diet-to-Go takes the worry away and keeps you on track with meal plans consisting of 1200 calories or 1600 calories.
In other words, someone plans and prepares meals for little ol’ me and ships them to my door. Whoohoo!! #heavenforahealthybusychick!
I received my packages via Fed-ex and quickly unpacked the and loaded the refrigerator with my food.
Once placed in my refrigerator, I took them out to heat and eat according to the day and time/time frame of each meal. Very simple! Here are a few photos of the meals I had.
I enjoyed this breakfast. Raisin bran muffin, orange juice, strawberry preserves and yogurt. A perfect meal for a busy morning. I added a few raspberries to the yogurt.
- Calories: 460
- Protein: 10g
- Carbs: 90g
Another breakfast option was the Mushroom Strata. Although, I don’t care of V8, I enjoyed the strata!
- Calories: 340
- Carbs: 25g
- Protein: 26g
This was probably one of my favorite meals – the Moroccan Lentil Salad. It came with a Whole Wheat Pita bread, yogurt sauce and an apple. I wanted more than one serving because it was SOOOO good!
- Calories: 510
- Protein: 16g
- Carbs: 77g
Another simple yet delicious meal was the black bean wrap. I like this choice as it was another good option for a busy day. It included the following items: a black bean & feta cheese wrap, wild rice salad with oranges, guacamole and OJ.
- Calories: 410
- Protein: 14g
- Carbs: 47g
I was able to choose the vegetarian option from their three menus (low-fat, vegetarian & low-carb). All meals come with all of the sides and condiments needed. Literally, all you need do is heat, eat and enjoy. They have 20 plans to choose from. I was curious to see how Diet-to-Go compares with other diet delivery services such as eDiets and BistroMD.
Overall I would recommend Diet-to-Go for people who are:
- Too busy to eat healthy
- Need guidance on calorie restrictions
- Want fresh “staple” meals without slaving over a hot stove
- Need portion controlled meals
- Focusing on calories within weight loss plan
I truly enjoyed trying out this service. Sometimes there isn’t enough time in the day and eating out can cost you upwards of $10 per meal. Most people spend at least a $100 a week on groceries so this isn’t too far off from the budget.
