As part of my Diet-to-Go Ambassadorship, on Tuesday, I received 5 days worth of meals to try out. I started them on Wednesday, so today is Day 3. I will finish the meals on Tuesday (skipping the weekend). I will do a full review next week, but since it could get long, I wanted to kind of intro the product today.
Full disclosure – I’m a Diet-to-Go Ambassador. This is unpaid, but for this review, I got the meals for free. That said, I’m not the sort to give a product a great review just because a company gave it to me (or if they were to compensate me for the review in another way). That’s not me.
I also want you to read Katy Widrick’s review of Diet-to-Go. It is an excellent review, and she even has Katie Heddleston, a Registered Dietician (and all around awesome person) look at the nutritional stats. Katy and Katie give the highs and lows of the product and provide a lot of great information.
I have used Diet-to-Go before, probably about a year and a half ago, maybe a bit longer. I really liked it. It was easy and tasty. I stopped because of the cost. For me, it just wasn’t sustainable. That said, it stayed on my radar for times when life got busy. Not having to plan meals or grocery shop can be a huge time saver.
I know some of you are reading this and thinking “But prepared meals aren’t healthy.” Would cooking everything on my own be healthier? Yes. That’s obvious. But you’ve heard me talk about my food beliefs. I know I should cook more. But I don’t. I don’t enjoy cooking, I really don’t enjoy cooking for one (and the cleanup afterwards) and I end up just grabbing easy foods. So for me, Diet-to-Go is a great option.
One thing that really excited me was the idea of substitutions for the meals. See something on the menu you don’t like? You can substitute something else. Personally, I’m not a huge fan of onions. I like them well enough in soups and stews (and rings, but everything is good breaded and fried), but they have to be fully cooked. Any crunch and I shudder. Raw onions wreak havoc on my stomach, so I think that my dislike of them comes from that. I still remember my disappointment from the last time I used DTG and was so excited for a delicious-looking sandwich for lunch. One bite and… ONIONS. So sad.
So I asked them that onions be limited. Okay in chilis and stews, not okay in sandwiches and other things. And man, did they deliver. I had a bunch of substituted meals, and each one was awesome. This did mean more sweet breakfasts and only one savory breakfast, but there is nothing wrong with more waffles and pancakes in my world.
A full review will come next week, but so far, I’m pretty happy.
