I have been speaking with a lot of people about my experience so far using Healthy Meal Plan, going into day three there have been some excellent meals and some misses. It is hard for any subscription service to have everything a hit every time, I’ve used multiple makeup subscription services in the past and have had some real misses.
I have friends in Toronto using meal subscription services right now so I asked their perspectives on the program. These are busy successful single women who have no time to cook let alone buy groceries, having weight controlled healthy meals are very important to them. They are paying $25.00 for two meals day on their services. Healthy Meal Plan costs $190.80 for breakfast, lunch and dinner for 5 days so 15 meals total which works out to $12.72 per meal on a 3 meal plan or $128.00 for two meals a day which is $12.80 per meal or $25.60 per day. The price is roughly the same for similar service in Toronto and cheaper than other similar services in town. Healthy Meal Plan you get delivery direct to your door rather than at a pickup location like other meal subscription services in Ottawa.
Todays breakfast was whole wheat toast with jam, scrambled and fresh fruit. This meal was good and it inspired me to make the exact same meal for my toddler. I’ve really come to realize how eating eggs for breakfast is a great way to start your day.
Lunch was Cilantro Lime Cod with Spicy Mayo with roasted potato poutine and coleslaw. There was a poutine gravy was good but really the potatoes didn’t need the sauce. The Cilantro Lime Cod was amazing. The Spicy Mayo was so good I could have coated everything in it. This was by far the best meal I’ve had with Healthy Meal Plan.
Dinner was Roasted Piri Piri Chicken with Piri Piri Sauce, Roasted Garlic Potatoes and Mixed Vegetable Medley. The roasted chicken was good, the piri piri sauce tasted exactly like Nando’s piri piri sauce but my potatoes were rather under cooked. This was a day I ate potatoes for two meals in a row, it would have been nice to have had these meals alternated with the ones from yesterday, swap the lunches to even out the flavours. Dinner was good but not a whole lot different then what I can pick up at the Urban Fresh for $15 the whole chicken, roasted potato and salad combo. that can feed an entire family.
Overall todays meals have been very good the Cilantro Lime Cod was restaurant quality.
