Summertime usually means one of two things - it's time to slim down to fit in that tiny bikini (or man-kini) or hibernate from all pools and beaches. If you're anything like me, this doesn't quite hit you until May rolls around the corner and then it slaps you in the face that the time has come to shed those last 5 - 10 pounds. Upon strategizing how to lose the weight, I was introduced to DeliverLean. DeliverLean is a premier gourmet meal delivery company in South Florida that offers clean and fresh meals delivered to your doorstep.
As a pescatarian who tends to stray away from gluten and occasionally enjoys vegan dishes, I found it extremely helpful that the healthy food delivery service offers custom meal plans to fit my diet. I usually cook my meals at home to save my body from any added preservatives; however, DeliverLean provides preservative-free meals prepared by gourmet chefs. Let's face it, I'm a health freak and if you follow my Instagram then you probably already knew this by now.
When I received my first delivery on Monday, it felt like Christmas. I stumbled out of bed and opened the front door to find a cooler filled with prepared meals for the next two days, and it was all completely healthy. DeliverLean provides drop-offs every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. The meals are 250 - 400 calories each, containing lean proteins, low-glycemic carbohydrates, high-fiber organic fruits and vegetables and healthy fats. DeliverLean also brews up raw, cold-pressed OnJuice juices which may be added to a meal plan as well. Aside from my meal plan, I also track daily consumption on an app called MyFitnessPal which allows you to record everything consumed with nutritional information included.
Let's get to the good stuff, my meal plan...which has been incredibly delicious.
A typical two-day delivery under my meal plan includes:
Gluten-Free Caramel Apple French Toast with Coconut Yogurt
Southwestern Tofu Scramble with Peppers, Onions and Sweet Potato Latke

Desserts may be added to a meal plan, and range from 90 to 300 calories per dish. Let's just say I almost died after trying the Gluten-Free Chocolate Molten Cake.
Raw Vegan Chocolate Mint Tart
Low-Fat Strawberry Cheesecake
Prior to beginning my summer meal plan, I measured and weighed myself so I'll be sharing results on my social networks. For those who are looking to join the slim down for bikini season challenge with me, sign up for one month and receive two free days here!
