 Diet Chef


DisclaimerPrecious Little Worlds have been sent out a hamper of food from Diet Chef for free in exchange for our honest opinion for the purpose of our blog, to report back to you the viewers our findings.

A few days ago we announced some exciting news that our blog "Precious Little Words" are official Diet Chef bloggers.

Guess what arrived awaiting for me yesterday after work our Diet Chef hamper pictured above remember we have the vegetarian option but they have a huge range for non veggies. 

But first I would like to tell you a little more about what and who they are- 

About Diet Chef


Wouldn’t it be simpler to lose weight if you had someone to prepare your food, control your portion size and count your calories? Just like a celebrity’s personal chef.

I started Diet Chef because I wanted everyone to be able to have that same advantage. No more labour intensive cooking, no more worrying about calories, no more counting points or struggling with portion size.

I am originally a chef by training and incredibly passionate about food so it’s important to me that everything you eat on Diet Chef is delicious and healthy with no nasty ingredients.
I work with Alan our Executive chef to ensure you have a great range of food to choose from with lots of new dishes and innovations.
Diet Chef has grown a lot in the last 5 years and we are now the largest diet home delivery company with over 80,000 customers, it’s been a brilliant journey.

    Now I am going to take you on a journey into how and why I am doing Diet Chef!
    Firstly yes I am a Vegetarian and have been most of my life. I have struggled with my weight from my early 20's.
    Thinking back one of the most low points had to be pregnancy and birth of my daughter Millie. She was born 10 weeks early & spent over 14 weeks in SCBU plus NICU,so this took its toll on me the majority of the time I was eating takeaways and hospital canteen junk food.

    I got back on track before becoming pregnant with my second child but also had some problems with my pregnancy. This spiralled and I put on the weight again. I didn't like what I saw in the mirror, at my biggest I was 11 & half stone.

    I started my own get healthy regime in January and tried all the well known brands which didn't work for me, the milkshakes made me vomit. Then I was getting desperate I reduced my portions and started skipping lunches which is not good.

    Did struggle to find the nutrition's and balance needed in my diet,do think most vegetarians would agree with me.

    I  started to lose weight and went from 11 & half stone to 10 stone but
    I do not recommend doing this, you feel ill and very weak. When I read about Diet Chef I really felt I had the ability to get to my target weight which is 9 stone and also give you the viewers the inside on how and if its going to work, then on the 13th August my hamper arrived yay :)

    Thursday the 14th of August day 1 Breakfast- 

    Fruit & Oat Soft Cookie 45 g 198 calories
    A decadent and delicious soft cookie, made with rolled oats, raisins and desiccated coconut, with apricots and mixed peel and subtly spiced with mixed spices. I developed these cookies especially for those who may not normally have breakfast and an alternative as a breakfast on the go.

    What hit me the most about the fruit & oat cookie is the soft moistness of it as a lot of cookies are very dry,this added a nice texture just loved the combination from the oats/raisins & apricots.

    Have to say was a little more calories then I normally look for in my breakfast bars but all in all very nice with my herbal boo tea!

    I have been provided with a Diet Chef shaker

    As I previously mentioned me and healthy milkshakes just don't get on so when I gave the Diet Chef one a go was thinking "right that's me being sick again" . 
    Well I could not believe it this is the first ever shake that has not turned my stomach and actually was very pleasant they come in chocolate ,strawberry and vanilla. Texture not too thick as for me that can be a big problem.


    Snack- Cheese & Onion Flavour Bakes

    It's a fact – this is our bestselling snack and easy to see why. These really crisp snacks are baked to perfection with a classic cheese and onion flavour. Truly are a great snack and a must in your hamper.

     Huge fan of these just such a delicious taste to them full of flavour not bland at all even could eat a few more pack opppsss did I say that!


    Dinner- Vegetarian Lasagne 

    A rich vegetable ragu with egg pasta and topped with a creamy sauce   270 g 240 calories

    This was the one I was so excited to try as do love a good veggie lasagne and could not get over only 240 calories just outstanding.

    Packaging very simple but effective very inviting wanted to get stuck in a prepare it as the picture on the package looked fantastic,but unfortunately this was short lived as soon as I took the veggie lasagne out of the microwave and put it on to my plate it did not look nothing like the 
    picture shown, which was a little disappointing.

    Taste- Did enjoy all the packed vegetables but did find the topping a bit slimy just seemed to be one texture to it,would of been nice with some Parmesan sprinkled on the top to give it that extra edge.

    Day one came to an end.

    Friday - Day off from Diet Chef you don't have to do this but the way I am and to fit in with my lifestyle as I have Fridays off is my treat day.This does not mean I'm going to stuff my face full of rubbish it just means I will be eating a none Diet Chef food for one day as I feel this works better for me so I'm not craving the things I want such as a jacket potato with cheese & beans ect----- 

    Do feel this benefits me but as I say you don't have to do that remember its your diet your plan.

    Will be going into more options in this vegetarian food from Diet Chef next time.

    Hope you all enjoyed my first part of Diet Chef journey, if you want to ask me any questions please do so.

    All the best Hannah at Precious Little Worlds
