Coco & Cowe does Rose Reisman!

Winy and I were given the opportunity to test drive Rose Reisman’s Personal Gourmet food delivery service a couple of weeks ago.  I opted for the breakfast, lunch and snack option, while Winy did the breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Although there was an option for both weight loss and healthy living we both opted for the weight loss option.  When in Rome….

Rose Reisman is a registered Nutritional Consultant, has written 17 cookbooks and in 2004 created The Art of Eating Well.  Personal Gourmet is an extension of all of her teachings, a way to make it simple for people to eat balanced, healthy meals by delivering them right to your doorstep.  All of the meals are chemical and preservative free, with an option for gluten free as well.

 

Below are our experiences:

Winy:

I lead an extremely hectic life and the first thing that seems to go out the window when I’m busy is my healthy eating. So, when Coco & I got the opportunity to try out Rose Reisman’s new frozen gourmet healthy meals for a week, I was excited to try it out.

I signed up for the weight loss frozen food delivery option and, after in-putting on their website my basic information; the computer calculated my BMI and my daily caloric intake for my meals.   I then selected breakfasts, lunches and dinners for a week.

Scared (would I go hungry?) but excited, I was like a kid at Christmas opening gifts when my food delivery arrived at my door the following Sunday. And let me tell you, I was not disappointed.  I started posting photos of the food I was eating on Instagram and some of my followers couldn’t believe that it was actually diet food. The food was tasty, natural and didn’t feel like frozen food out of a box.

Because I was on the weight loss frozen delivery option, my portions were small but that’s what my body needs right now in order to slim down for summer.  If you are like me, always on the go and are looking for a healthy, easy option to stay on track, I definitely recommend trying out Rose Reisman’s Food delivery. Prices are affordable, actually, cheaper then I spend on takeout food and it is actually healthy.  I’ve just signed up for another week!

 

Coco:

I went for the breakfast and lunch option mostly because my husband wasn’t on the plan and I didn’t think making a single dinner for him would have worked out very well – after all, this is supposed to make things easier.  So I would eat my delivery food during the day and make a big salad for dinner.

 

You already know the process from what Winy wrote above but one of the standouts for me was being able to preselect your meals.  I’ve done a bunch of food delivery programs but this has the been the first that allowed me to choose what I actually wanted to eat from a menu of options – which was awesome because I’m a pretty picky eater.

The heating instructions offer microwave or oven options but when I had the time (which usually was only at breakfast) I used the oven and the food was much better.  It was also a really nice treat to eat eggs.  I usually have a protein shake in the morning so having real food (that I didn’t have to prepare) was a really nice way to start the day.

Overall I didn’t feel like I was on a diet.  The food was filling and tasty and really convenient.  For once I didn’t spend any of my day agonizing over what I was going to eat.  Would I do it again?  If my husband was signed up as well, yes.  That way I could do the whole program (breakfast, lunch, dinner) and properly gauge how effective/different it is from the way I eat.
