Eating Clean with Deliver Lean

At least once a month my husband and I get in a food rut. Nothing sounds good. I don't want to cook, we don't feel like eating out, ordering pizza or Chinese food to be delivered is only satisfying for the first five minutes.

I'm so happy that I was able to spend four days of no cooking and not having to figure out what to eat by enjoying healthy meals from South Florida's premier gourmet meal service, DeliverLean. I also received cold-pressed juice from OnJuice, DeliverLean's juice partner.

At 2am on Monday May 19th my first delivery of two days of breakfast, lunch and dinner arrived. DeliverLean delivers their meals every Monday, Wednesday and Friday between the hours of 12am and 7am. Since I live in an apartment complex I was nervous about my insulated cooler bag filled with food sitting out in the hallway. In my delivery instructions I asked if I could be called when my delivery arrived. So at 2am a happy DeliverLean guy came to my door. I was SO EXCITED about all of the delicious goodies that I was about to eat I didn't fall back asleep until 5am!

In my instructions I also asked for no bananas and no mushrooms. They were clearly marked on my bag and a DeliverLean Quick Start Guide was included.

Delivery one was vegetarian.

DAY 1
BREAKFAST:
Fresh Fruit Cup & 2 Gluten-free Chocolate Cherry Scones + OnJuice Piña-Kale-Lotta
LUNCH: Kale Caesar Salad w/ Shredded Carrots, Grape Tomatoes, Ezekiel Croutons & Shaved Parmesan.
DINNER: Butternut Squash & White Bean Stew w/ Short Grain Brown Rice (salad added)
DESSERT: Raw Vegan Persian Lime Tart

DAY 2
BREAKFAST:
Crustless Vegetable Quiche w/ Grilled Roma Tomato
LUNCH: Falafel Wrap w/ Sun-dried Tomato, Hummus, Arugula & Tahini
JUICE: OnJuice Lemon Aid
DINNER: Vegetarian Shepherds Pie w/ Red Wine Gravy

Wednesday morning's delivery was left outside my door. I woke up at 4am to check and it was safely there waiting for me.

Delivery two was vegan.

DAY 3
BREAKFAST
: Gluten-free Caramel Apple French Toast w/ Vanilla Coconut Yogurt + OnJuice Sublime
LUNCH: Brussels Sprouts & Kale Salad w/ Toasted Sunflower Seeds & Coconut Dressing (grilled tofu and avocado added)
DINNER: Panang Curry Tofu w/ Winter Vegetables & Short Grain Rice
DESSERT: Raw Vegan Chocolate Mini Tart

DAY 4
BREAKFAST: Southwestern Tofu Scramble w/ Peppers Onions & Sweet Potato Latke
LUNCH: Arugula & Endive Salad w/ Fennel, Hearts of Palm, Tomatoes, Goat Cheese & Red Wine Vinaigrette
JUICE: OnJuice Pink
DINNER: Stewed Eggplant & Tomatoes Over Toasted Spaghetti Squash w/ Wilted Spinach
JUICE: OnJuice Mint Condition

Everything was great! All the meals are perfectly portioned and packaged in microwave safe containers. And they were clearly marked with nutrition information and symbols to indicate if the food is best enjoyed cold or warm.

With the DeliverLean service you have access to a nutritionist and body analysis. So Friday May 23rd I took the 50 min drive to Oakland Park Florida to DeliverLean. I talked to a nutritionist about my plant-based diet and workout routine. I found out that I'm 40% body fat. YIKES! Well, 35% of that is in my butt and thighs! However, I took the nutritionist advice and added eggs into my diet and more weight training and I've lost three pounds since then! It usually takes me a month to loose, and maintain, one pound. So this is great news for me!

I also received a tour of the DeliverLean facility. Delicious food was being prepared in the cold and hot kitchens. It took everything in me not to start stuffing my face with everything! (The massive OnJuice cooler filled with a rainbow of juice not photographed). The DeliverLean employees gets all the food and juice they want. OMG, they are so lucky!

GET 2 DAYS FREE!
If you live in the South Florida area you can get 2 days free with the purchase of a 1 month plan ($7.95 per meal. 3 meal minimum per day). Just go to www.DeliverLean.com/blogger and mention the Dirty Laundry blog!

All you do is select a plan (Traditional, Paleo/Low Cal, Gluten-free, Organic Protein, Vegetarian, Vegan or a MIX). Deliver Lean cooks it up and then it's delivered to your door!

Cheers to healthy eating!

92 - photo diary

My photo diary for May 2014.

Wow, it's June already! Nineteen days until the official start of summer!

I did a couple of foodie promos in May and I fell in love with Yoplait Greek yogurt. Way cheaper than soy yogurt and so good for me with 12 grams of protein. My new morning snack. I also made black bean brownies again and Moscato baked pears with Mirassou Moscato. Both desserts were gluten-free, delicious and yummy with a Starbucks Oprah Chai Tea Latte!

I even had a 4-day free trail of Deliver Lean healthy meal delivery service! I was spoiled with not having to cook, that last week I was totally missing it. Look for my full review on the food and the service later this week.

I'm still rocking my nude/gold shockproof phone case. It totally protects my phone when I'm in the gym. My phone never leaves my side! I have it with me all of the time. Even in the restroom, LOL! That's when I received a Mother's Day text from my 18-year-old stepson who is in the Air Force. I've been his long distance step mom and it was so sweet of him to wish me a happy Mother's Day!

Let's see what adventures June bring. I'll see you on Instagram!

5 Simple Pudding Snacks + giveaway

Every day I try to eat right. Having a plant-based diet doesn't mean just eating vegetables. And it doesn't mean eating lots of  bread, pasta and baked goods. I try to eat whole, gluten free, vegan and sugar free foods when I can. Although I'm a snackaholic, I love chips! I try to stay away from too many processed foods. And I love a sweet dessert from time to time. That's why Kozy Shack® Rice Pudding is a great choice with six simple ingredients in every spoonful. My motto is: If you can't read it, don't eat it!

Kozy Shack® Rice Pudding is America’s number one rice pudding. It is made with low-fat milk, rice, sugar, eggs, salt and natural flavors. Nothing more. It's a great source of calcium and gluten free!

A simple pudding snack tastes delicious straight out of the fridge, of course. But you can turn your everyday pudding into a special treat by adding other toppings you already have at home. Here is how I like to top my Kozy Shack® Rice Pudding.

green tea powder: Stirring in a sprinkle of matcha green tea powder gives an antioxidant boost.

cinnamon & raisins: This classic combo is simple, easy and tasty.

cookies: This parfait with gluten-free sugar cookies was delicious. Two spoons, 1 parfait. Sharing is caring!

granola: Crunchy granola gives texture and is a twist on a yogurt parfait.

chocolate & coconut chips: A bit of chocolate and coconut flavor cures any sweet tooth.

 

  GIVEAWAY
One lucky Dirty Laundry reader will win two (2) premium, ceramic Kozy Shack® Pudding mugs with spoons and a product coupon good for one (1) free package of any Kozy Shack® product, up to $4.99.

GIVEAWAY is OVER

a Rafflecopter giveaway

Giveaway ends June 18, 2014 11:59PM EST.

How do you like to enjoy your pudding? Do you simply spoon some into a dish and smile? Do you like to top it with fruit, crunchy pretzels or whipped cream? How do you make a simple pudding snack feel more special by serving in a mini mason jar or small glass bowl? There are tapioca and chocolate flavors too!
