Heya Lovelies,

So often we hear about the latest way to lose weight or gain muscle. A lot of our time is spent looking through Instagram at all these fabulous people while we sit scoffing our faces on the couch. If that's not you, huge congrats you've gotten over the hurdle I certainly haven't yet!

A new opportunity came to my inbox one day that I was intrigued with. I have seen a few advertisements for things like this in the past but never participated myself. As this was a new Irish company, I decided I would take a chance and offered to write a post afterwards.

DIET MEAL PLANS STANDARD

Standard plan is for everyone who is interested in simply improving their health, maximizing their energy level, and achieving a goal weight.

This plan contains a balanced mix of nutrients, ensuring that you get the right level of carbohydrates, proteins, and dietary fats you need everyday.

DIET MEAL PLANS BODYBUILDING & ATHLETIC

Sport focused meal plans are designed for the active individual in mind. Diet meal plans bodybuilding & athletic has a slightly different mix of nutrients that ensures you are giving your hard working muscles the fuel they need to recover and repair after  those intense workout sessions.

These plans accommodate very high activity levels, you will notice that the macronutrient distribution favors a higher protein and moderate carbohydrate intake. This will ensure you have energy to spare as you go about those exercise sessions.

Protein is the hardest nutrient to consume adequate amounts of on a vegetarian diet.

DIET MEAL PLANS KIDS

Diet Meal Plans for kids are based on balanced nutritional portion controlled meals. The kids diet consists of 3 healthy and balanced ready to eat meals: breakfast, snack and lunch.  This diet plan is suitable for kids aged 6 to 13 years.

So my opportunity was to choose one of the plans and a day would be delivered to my door. I was sitting at home and the doorbell rang, my bag was hand delivered and I was ready to eat for the next day. I wasn't exactly sure what was on the menu for that day but I decided to play it safe and choose the standard plan. I was also able to include that I was not to eat onions or mushrooms in my diet and I was told this wouldn't be a problem.

Let's take a look at what I got...

The first thing I noticed about the meals was the sizing. I had read somewhere that ideally our biggest meal of the day should be our breakfast and that as the day goes on we should be eating less and less. This theory is deffo used throughout The Healthy Kitchen so I wasn't fully prepared for this. 

The second thing I noticed was the amount of food. It is definitely enough for one person in one day. To be honest even with the portion size, I felt like I might be eating all day but again was willing to give it a try.



So how did I get on? My day was made very easy not having to prepare food. I didn't find I was overly hungry, I do however love a cup of tea and a treat of an evening especially now that the winter months are here but I did leave that out even for this night to really give the full package a go.

Is this something I would invest in? Well for me saving for a wedding, a house and trying to remain on slimming world in preparation for the wedding, this doesn't really suit me. J however thinks this is a great idea. He doesn't unfortunately work in an environment where he takes enough breaks to eat 5 times a day so I think you would have to have a fairly structured working life to make this work for you.

Cost is also something I'm too aware of these days. You are talking €20 a day which may mean €100 a week to feed yourself, I don't know about you but currently I do not spend that on food. I think though for next year when I am really in the throws of the wedding preparation this would be an asset to any future weight loss I would like. I think if I was to take on working with a personal trainer, having a set programme and set food would really make it easier for me. I think health is an investment and we all need to look at that. Eating cheap isn't always the best thing for us, more & more studies are showing us the dangers of living on just processed foods so with that in mind, if you are looking for freshly prepared meals, delivered to your door then I would recommend The Healthy Kitchen.
