Healthy Fast Food?

I’ve really enjoyed The Detox Kitchen’s Mama package this week*. Nutritionally designed for postnatal mums in collaboration with nutritional therapist Amelia Freer I was so interested to give it a go (even though I can hardly excuse myself from the kitchen on the grounds of being postnatal …but I’m on half term break with my four children so I’m hoping these are considered extenuating circumstances!?).

So, for three days this week every meal, snack and drink was taken care of and I didn’t have to lift a finger.  Wow, it’s strange not to have to order food in, prep, cook or even think about meals (oh, except for the children’s meals of course. How could I forget them!?).

I have to admit I was initially sceptical about how much I’d enjoy The Detox Kitchen’s home delivered food. I had a few reservations: I love cooking and thought I’d miss planning and making my meals; I like contemplating and experimenting with new recipes; was there really going to be enough food to keep me going all day long; I knew The Detox Kitchen’s Mama meals were going to be healthy (they’re designed in collaboration with nutritional therapist Amelia Freer after all) but were they going to be tasty?

I’ve been so surprised to realise over the past few days how ill founded each of my reservations have been. I’ve really appreciated the new flavours and ideas that these meals have exposed me to (apple and lime bircher – why had it never occurred to me to add lime? A breakfast of corn bread? How could I have forgotten about this option?). Their meals and snacks have given me cooking inspiration and great ideas and they have all been delicious and filling. In fact, there were times when I didn’t need my snacks or puddings because the meals were so big. Who would have thought? Perhaps it’s something to do with the fact that I’m not breastfeeding or sleep deprived….So for their target audience (a postnatal mum who may be breastfeeding and who will be sleep deprived) I doubt anything would go to waste.

This Mama package is really delicious and a great gift for a friend or sister who has a new baby and all the chaos that entails or for someone who might just need a break from the stove for a while.
