In my burb, DeliverLean is the new big thing. Once everyone had gotten sick of the juice fasts – which I never tried, because I like to chew. And once everyone realized getting a colonic was nothing like going to the spa (Skipped that too, though I was tempted to go for the celebrity sighting aspect, “Hello Ben and Matt.”), people were ready to find something with more longevity and less nakedness.
I too was down with that, which is why, I kinda jumped at the chance to get a free week to try out the meals. We uber famous bloggers are asked to do these types of things daily and as you guys know, I usually say, “NO.” Well, “no thanks” (I’m a polite rejecter), but this time I was all “hell yes,” as I would have tried it anyway. That’s like going to the counter at Saks, ready to buy some hot stilettos and having the salesperson ask if you want them for free. Since that like, never happens, I was all over this opportunity. Unfortunately, the peeps at DeliverLean have no idea what they’ve gotten themselves into. As my readers you may be aware I’m slightly neurotic, extremely attuned to detail, and possibly certifiable, but did you also know I’m Sally? As in:Not that I have orgasms in deli’s (other than the one time). I’m the Sally who said:
I’d like the pie heated and I don’t want the ice cream on top, I want it on the side, and I’d like strawberry instead of vanilla if you have it, if not then no ice cream just whipped cream but only if it’s real; if it’s out of the can then nothing.
Anyone who’s eaten with me can attest to this. It’s not that I’m proud of it either. In fact, up until recently if you brought this similarity to my attention I would have denied it, then kicked you in the shin, and then ran from the restaurant — sticking you with the bill.
So, I guess now we’ll see if DeliverLean can cut the mustard. The food certainly LOOKS yummy. I mean really, this is my kind of meal:
Let’s face it, this soooo beats cold french fries that were either too big, too small, too burnt, or too hard for my kids to eat (those are the only ones they leave on the plate).
And this looks like it would go perfect with my morning latte!
So, aside from the fact that I’m the pickiest eater ever, this concept seems perfect for me.
A. I like to eat things that are preservative free, made by gourmet chefs, put together by nutritionists, and that I can barely pronounce, like quinoa.
B. I’m supposed to eat more than my usual 2 meals per day because I’ve got low bp and I’m hypoglycemic, yet it’s usually noon by the time I put anything in my mouth, if I’m not shaking to hard or half passed out on the floor.
C. My favorite foods include things I don’t have to cook, foods that stop me from binging on my kids left over mac n’ cheese because I’m avoiding cooking, or foods that someone else has made fore me.
D. Oh, I will so welcome “ready to eat” breakfasts (See B.). Frankly, the only thing worse than cooking at the end of a long day is cooking before the day begins (See C.).
OK, I’m off to start my week, wish me luck! I’ll get back to you next Friday to let you know if this is a trend worth sinking your teeth into … if it’s time to put your money where your mouth is. OK, no more … I’ll report back is all I’m sayin’.
