Motivational Monday Blog Link-Up
(You can link up your own blog post at the end of mine.)
I have been excited to share with all of you my review on Diet-To-Go. You may know I am a Diet-To-Go Ambassador. Let me first tell you a little of why I decided to join Diet-To-Go. They are all about creating healthy living, by healthy eating.
To lose weight you have to insert both diet and exercise into your life. It's not easy, in fact it can be darn right hard at times (this I know)! For me I used to look at celebrities and think to myself, now if I only had my own personal chef that could make food I actually enjoyed. Then I'd be able to turn regular dieting into an all around healthy lifestyle change and look as good as some of them do.
Well that is what Diet-To-Go is, it's your own personal chef. They send the fresh meals to you weekly. So it is completely easy and hassle free! You sign up, and ask for the type of foods/diet you would like to be on. You can be picky and leave out certain things, so when you get your meals they are food you will love to eat. How easy is that? It's seriously is just like having your own personal chef!
This past week I have been enjoying some delicious dishes. This isn't my first time trying out Diet-To-Go meals. I have to tell you I was pleasantly surprised to discover that their menu is even more vast than I previously thought! I didn't have a single meal to eat that was the same as any of the many meals I have tried in the past. They have three meal plans to choose from: Traditional, Vegetarian and Low Carb. Each meal plan has 5 weeks of meal rotations, so as you can see a very vast selection of meals!
I chose the Traditional Low-Fat Diet Meal Plan to eat this past week. I'd like to give you a daily breakdown of my daily meals to give you a little bit of an idea of the types of yummy foods they have available.
Breakfast - 4 Pancakes each piled with blueberries, with a turkey sausage with veggies for a side.
Lunch - Szechuan turkey burger on a delicious multi-grain roll, with a carrot beet salad as my side.
Dinner - Turkey Chili with beans
Breakfast - Mango Cranberry Muffin
Lunch - Turkey ham salad on a fresh pretzel roll a side of Lentil Chili and String Cheese. Picture on the right
Dinner - Fettuccine with Italian style meatballs in tomato sauce and a side of vegetables.
Breakfast - Ratatouille Omelet, with lots of yummy cheese and veggies and a side of Asparagus. pictured to the left
Lunch - Chicken Alfredo Melt in white sauce with a side of vegetables.
Dinner - Penne Pasta flavored with turkey and meat sauce.
Breakfast - Noodle Kugel, creamy egg noodles cooked with spices and a side of applesauce and Cranberry juice drink. Picture on right
Lunch - Curry Chicken Salad Sandwich on a soft mulit-grain bun, with side of mandarin oranges.
Dinner - Chicken Parmeasean
Breakfast - Fruit Ambrosia, a Kashi granola bar with a fruit mix of mango, pineapple, blueberries, raspberries, strawberries smothered in Ambrosia sauce and yogurt.
Lunch - Deluxe Turkey Sandwich on a soft yummy multi-grain bun
I absolutely loved my meals! I have to tell ya, I love their breads!!! I could eat one of their sandwiches on their breads for lunch every day of the week, they are my most favorite!
All the meals are great, but I am a normal person and of course I am going to have a few favorites. So some of my favorites this week were the Chicken Pizza, Curry Chicken Salad Sandwich (YUM) this was my first time trying Curry. Yes I know odd, but hey I am a picky eater and always afraid to try new things, but this showed me that I need to be willing to try new things.
Other favorites, Szechuan Turkey Burger, Ratatouille Omelet, Turkey Ham Salad, Blueberry Pancakes.
They also had an extra meal included in mine that was a Strawberry & Peach Fruit and Granola Parfait, again YUMMM!
|Doesn't that mulit-grain bread look delicious?|
I'd like to mention, most meals are huge and I rarely finished some of them before having to stop because I was full. I just put the remainder in the fridge for a snack later on. Seriously love that you can eat healthy foods, and lose weight and at the same time always feel full. That's to me is what Common Sense Healthy Eating is all about!!!
Speaking of pounds, the Diet-To-Go meals in addition with being able to add new exercise into my life last week helped me shed a little over 4 pounds over the past 7 days. Now I won't lie, it may not entirely have been the meals alone. After all I did go from 3 weeks of little to no walking and on crutches only, to this past week, a lot of walking and working to strengthen my ankle injury. However, that is a lot of weight in one week, so I completely believe it had a little to do with both the meals and the new exercise! Either way I am extremely happy with it all!!! YAY!!!
