I recently got an awesome opportunity to try a food delivery service called DeliverLean. I was excited to try this as I hate to cook and am always in a hurry in the morning and forget my meals for the day. It consisted of two days of meals that were delivered to my house Wednesday morning and the meals would be for that day and Thursday. I was so excited to see my cooler by my front door when I left for work at 7:30 AM.
If you know me then you know I usually always eat the same thing all the time. I don’t go way out of my comfort zone for everyday meals. When I opened the cooler to see what meals they had planned I was a bit nervous because the meals were very different from what I would normally eat.
The meal plan consisted of…
Breakfast: Roasted Vegetable Frittata, Ekekiel Sprouted Grain Bread & Jam
Lunch: Turkey Burger w/ Fresh Mozarella Cheese, Spinach & Roasted Tomatoes w. Balsamic Glaze
Dinner: Grilled Steak Chimichurri, Cinnamon Sweet Potato Wedges and Roasted Cauliflower
Breakfast: Sweet Potato Pecan Multigrain Pancakes w. Sugar Free Syrup
Lunch: Watermelon Feta Tabbouleh Rosemary Shrip
Dinner: Chicken Parmesan w. Penne and Strained Green Beans.
On Wednesday I really didn’t like the Frittata much at all. I hated the texture and just the overall taste. Thank goodness for the bread and jam. Lunch was great. I loved that they added mozzarella cheese, spinach and tomatoes to a turkey burger. I didn’t use the glaze because the burger was fine as is. I was surprised there wasn’t any type of side like veggies but it was surprisingly filling. The dinner was not something I would normally eat at all. I rarely eat red meat. It was great, though, and I was surprised it wasn’t dried out from having to nuke it in the microwave for a minute. The sweet potato wedges were delicious! I usually am not a fan of sweet potatoes since they are so sweet but they tasted awesome. The cauliflower also was good, I usually find it to be boring but they did a great job with adding some flavor to it.
Overall I would give this meal plan a B. If it weren’t for the Frittata I would have given it an A+!
Thursday started out MUCH better! The sweet potato pecan pancakes were incredible. I love nuts in everything so this really made my day. I also think they tasted like buttermilk pancakes which was nice. I would love to make some of these for my son minus the pecans.
I also loved that one of the meals was Chicken Parm. That is one of my favorite italian meals. It was a smaller portion then you would get at say, Olive Garden, so it was nice to not feel overly stuffed. I think that was my favorite meal of the day. The rest were great too and I enjoyed the variety DelverLean offered.

Some of the smaller touches I really enjoyed and maybe I am the only one who noticed, not sure but was that the cooler bag was made from recycled products. That to me is awesome. They also use containers that can be recycled and they state this when explaining the heating instructions. I love that they are taking even the smallest steps to help the environment.
I think that if you are looking for a delivery food service that has a variety of foods and helps you stay within your daily suggested caloric intake then this is the thing for you!
They offer 5 different meal plans. They include the Traditional Meal Plan, the Paleo Meal Plan, a Gluten Free Meal Plan, an Organic Meal Plan and for those on the HCG Diet there is a meal plan for you as well! You can also chose from 5,6 or 7 day Meal Plan. The options are endless!
