Pickle Food Co. is a healthy diet delivery service that offers calorie-controlled meals along with all-natural cold-pressed juice.
I ordered their 1200-Calorie Low Carb High Protein plan and here’s my review.
Note: I am not in any way affiliated with Pickle Food Co. I paid for this diet delivery. They didn’t ask me to review.
Ordering from Pickle
To order you can go to their website or Facebook page to view the details.
They actually have different packages that you can chose from. I picked the 1200-calorie (per day) Low Carb High Protein package which cost P2,500 for five days.
They will deliver food everyday from Monday to Friday and each day’s food consists of three meals and two snacks.
The order form is on their website. I filled out the order form on their website and they emailed me to confirm. You have to order the week before you want the food delivered. I ordered on Thursday and they emailed the confirmation on Friday.
One week’s food
Before ordering, you can check out the week’s menu beforehand.
Pickle Food Co. Diet Delivery Review
Actual Food – One Day’s Diet Food
So what does the food look like? Here are my pics of what I got.
This is the food I will eat for one day. As you can see, there are three big microwaveable containers for the three meals and two smaller ones for the snack.
Now, when you got to their website they show the food nicely arranged and everything. This photo shows what you actually get, with no fancy plating. 🙂 This was my breakfast: Greek Beef with Garlic Yogurt and Chickpea Mash. I liked the egg and chickpea mash. I poured the yogurt over the ground beef. It was okay but not something I would have ordered myself if I had a choice.
One of the problems with the diet delivery services of this sort is that you don’t get to pick what to eat. There’s a set menu for the entire week and if there’s a dish you don’t like, tough!!!
Lunch was Spicy Thai Basil Chicken. It was flavorful but a bit too salty for me. Eating it like this without rice (to lose weight) isn’t really my preferred way but it wasn’t too bad. I felt full after I drank a cup of coffee and a glass of water.
A little tip for you: Drink plenty of water! Don’t be in too much of a rush when you eat. Eating too fast means you aren’t giving yourself time to feel that your hunger is satiated.
According to the menu that was posted, dinner was supposed to be Chicken with Roasted Garlic, Tomato and Spinach. However, as you can see, I seem to have gotten something different. Where’s the spinach? It did taste good, though.
Pickle Food Co. Diet Delivery Review: Conclusion
The price is a bit expensive at P500 per day for very little food. This does seem to be standard as I checked the other diet delivery services in Metro Manila and they all had the same pricing.
Overall, I thought the food all tasted good. There was too little of it to keep me really satisfied but I guess that is to be expected when it’s only 1200 calories per day. It’s okay if you can afford it.
