Some time in the past I used to be approached by a consultant from Diet to Go to check out their meals geared towards individuals with diabetes. Since they had been sending me the meals totally free in change for my very own trustworthy opinion, I figured why not.
Now I’ll say that I do not sometimes use pre-packaged meals for breakfast or dinner. My breakfast sometimes consists of a protein drink that may be simply consumed throughout my early morning commute to the varsity the place I train. Dinners are with my household, consuming the identical meals that they’re having. As a end result, most the meals I obtained had been introduced to highschool for my lunch.
The meals arrived in a big styrofoam cooler with ice packs and dry ice. Since they had been shipped frozen, I positioned all of them in my freezer as I unpacked the cargo. There was no clear directions on methods to retailer the objects and even methods to put together them. Were they only to be thawed or microwaved? Were they to be thawed earlier than microwaved? A number of of the meals had some primary directions like heating to a sure temperature, however nothing as clear as one would discover on a frozen meal from the grocery retailer. Perhaps this info was discovered on the web site, which I’ll admit I’ve solely given a short have a look at a couple of instances.
Overall the meals was good. I do not suppose I attempted something that turned my abdomen. Everything appeared wholesome. Only a couple of of the meals had the diet info on the package deal (once more this could be on the web site, however I am undecided). Some meals pushed the 45 g carbs mark. I imagine that Diet to Go makes use of the American Diabetes Association’s pointers of everybody consuming 30-45 g carbs per meal. This one dimension matches all strategy will not be one thing I cater to, as my physique reacts to carbs in another way at totally different instances of the day.
If you are pleased with the quantity of carbohydrates per meal and the worth of the meals, this could be one thing for you. The comfort was good as I may simply seize one thing from my freezer with out a lot thought. The style was additionally good. I used to be shocked how a lot I did like some objects that I’ll haven’t tried in any other case. The principal negatives had been the shortage of dietary info and preparation directions on the packaging.
