Healthy food with Menu Diet

The most difficult thing of being on a diet is maintaining the results obtained forever and ever. While the most difficult thing during the diet period is to buy and cook exactly the food required from the dietist. What I’ve learned last week trying the “Menù degustacion” of MenuDiet, is that being on a diet can be possible with their help.

The menu I’ve tried lets you try four dishes at a discounted price, in order to get to know the service, before starting a full program monitoring all your numbers and how your weight trend is performing, if you want to lose weight but also if after a diet you want to maintain your shape.

If like you don’t like to cook during the week when in a hurry or too tired, I do believe there is nothing like MenuDiet. Because I have to admit also that I am always eating outside home, when I do the grocery, I can’t cook everything in time, and I see the waste of food that I can’t control. I can’t plan my meals.

The fact that MenuDiet portions are freezed makes it easier to organize the weekly food, without feeling bad if not all the meals have been used, they are not gonna lose their qualities for months.

Apart from these advantages I really think that this kind of services which are affecting our health need to be of really high quality in terms of food, and extremely efficient in terms of the service.

Even if I’ve tried only four plates of the whole menu I can state that you have a wide range of foods, not too complicated food, but each portion is a complete meal that is always accompanied by a sort of semaphore in terms of calories, so it can be green, orange or red, and makes it so easier to chose in order to weight results you are looking for.

The nutritional service is full consultancy service monitoring the results of program which can be also very specific for diabetics, for sportsmen or for as mentioned before maintaining or losing weight, starting from one week program to 6 weeks plans.

Back to my very personal experience, the customer service and delivery were perfect, super kind the girls answering my questions, and super quick the courier, even if in Madrid there’s a shop in calle Alcalà which is another option for the food takeaway.

I took some pictures of the packaging that you receive, the first order includes a fridge bag inside of it, and some pictures of the food, after the 4 minutes in the microwave directly from the freezer.

I didn’t create a shooting set, or nothing like that, the food is exactly as it is when you take it of the its original plate, on a normal ceramic plate, but you can also eat from the black plastic.

So my choice was: potaje de bacalao, canelones de verduras, estofado de ternera and pollo con mango.

The first plate, the potaje de bacalao, was the only green light plate, the portion was perfect and at the end of the meal I felt really ok, maybe I would add some bread, also in all the other dishes, because the sauces are so great, but it was really perfect, probably my favourite of all.

As an Italian, pasta in the oven is one of my sacred food, or even better the Sunday lunch family food, so it it quite impossible to me to consider cannelloni cooked in the microwave, but following the timing suggestion for cooking I had the perfect distribution of the heat resulting like if it was cooked in the oven, but even better!

The two meat portions, chicken and beef stew were both great, this time I shared them with my colleague that usually has always something to complain about food especially with sauces, and this time I really loved the food asking me when I would give him some more.

I think it is really nice that in a big city like Madrid, with lots of people living alone or working a lot, or just having time constraints because of kids for example, that at least one thought can be archived because MenuDiet can really solve the annoying question “what do I eat today?”.

I think the world is divided into two macro categories:

  • people who love to cook and pack their lunch box for the day after;
  • people who are unable to plan and cook for the next day.

I belong to the second category, I am the one that has cooked the lunch box the night before like two or three times in the whole life. The very first first time I cooked my food box it was so good that I ate it on the same night, even if I had dinner before.

When you live like me, day by day, you might have some problems, because the alternatives of the homemade lunch box are awful. Everytime I go out from the office to hunt something that needs to be quick-tasty-cheap, most of the time I only get two alternatives that are cheap-terrible or healthy-expensive, and during the lunchtime hours it is even difficult to get something, all the best restaurants and cafeterias are always full.

The worst options in the end are always: supermarket, hamburger, kebab and so on …Then comes the best options which might turn to be the most expensive, and the difference is relevant because it might cost the double. I am talking about the food delivery. I am a huge fan of this kind of service and I have tried all the different providers, and to me it can’t be considered an everyday solution, I always order when I am in a kind of emergency with no time and too much work to handle that doesn’t give me the possibility to go out.

The food delivery service I have just discovered is called WETACA and in my first week of use seems really the perfect match solution of all my problems.

It is a very simple, and innovative way to answer all my problems, and the customer service is super fast.

The order is placed one week before, with all these well prepared food that can last in the fridge for 7 days. The menu is available on the website and changes every week, thursday is the new order day.

You can find a great variety, fish, meat, pasta, rice, from different traditional cuisine, asian, european and american.

The service and the order on the website were very easy to handle. Deciding what I was going to try and order for the first time was not that quick, because there were a lot of interesting choices, and now that I’ve seen three different weeks menu it seems to me that it’s getting always better, I found my top of mind food that I never cooked at home, like the zucchini spaghetti or the mac&cheese.

On Monday morning this huge box rang my bell because that was my delivery choice.

I mean, how cool is to receive a box instead of a bag, it’s like Christmas. What about the funny quote? I loved it!

The packaging is really easy to be stored in the fridge and when you served it you don’t need to change the place, the black microwave dish is elegant and I loved it.

I can firmly state that all the WETACA food I’ve tried so far were really great, don’t even think that you can compare the supermarket gastronomy with them. Every shrimp and every tacos I ate I do believe was a superior quality food, and with that I mean you’ll make a lot of mmmmmmmmmh noise while eating them, because they were so good and not difficult to digest, because we all know that after lunch comes a full time afternoon in the office.

 

The pad thai for example comes in two separate box and need to be mixed if you want to have a uniform result, because there is a lot of sauce and all your noodle deserve it.

The brownie takes just 30 seconds in the microwave to be ready and it’s the same brownie that we usually order in the hypest american bar and pay three times the WETACA one that let me use the proper word: orgasmatic.

Nothing to add, once you try WETACA you never go back, that’s true, I just did my second order and wait to do the third now that I’ve seen the mac&cheese!
