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.
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
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.
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
BREAKFAST: Southwestern Tofu Scramble w/ Peppers Onions & Sweet Potato Latke

JUICE: OnJuice Pink
DINNER: Stewed Eggplant & Tomatoes Over Toasted Spaghetti Squash w/ Wilted Spinach

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!
