The Love Yourself diet boxes provide surprisingly flexible and customisable meals. The Love Yourself meals can cater to pescatarians, vegetarians, gluten-free eaters, dairy-free noshers, halal-diet diners, Keto diet enthusiasts and Veto diet (vegetarian Keto) followers.
What is the Veto Diet?
The veto diet is simply vegetarian keto. The Love Yourself Veto Diet is high in fat (75%), low in carbohydrates (25%) and mostly plant-based proteins (5%). Note that eggs and dairy do provide some animal-based proteins as well.
You can get the Veto Diet in either 1700 or 2500 calories. Prices start at £25 for one day, or £125 for 5 days.
You can save money by signing up to the food subscription box. Food subscription boxes can go for up to 8 weeks which is a perfect amount of time for you to achieve and sustain a new diet lifestyle.
Ok, so what is the Keto diet?
A keto diet is based on the idea of eating food that is high in fat and low in carbohydrates. Traditionally keto diets are high in animal protein. They have been recommended for people with diabetes and for weight loss.
How does the Keto diet work?
By reduce the carbohydrates you take in to less than 50 grams a day you can achieve ketosis in your body. Ketosis is where the body digs into its fat storage for energy.
Ketosis is a perfectly normal state for the human body to enter when it doesn’t have enough carbohydrates to burn for energy. For example, the human body hits ketosis after extended exercise.
So what makes up vegetarian keto meals?
Keto meals tend to be high in animal protein like bacon, and beef.
A plant based diet can also be high in fat and low in carbohydrates. Some examples of food used in a vegetarian keto meals are:
- coconut oil, macadamia oil, flaxseed oil and avocado oil,
- seeds such as chia seeds, hemp seeds and pumpkin seeds,
- nuts such as macadamia nuts
For pure vegans, add protein sources such as tofu and tempeh. Vegetarians like me can use eggs and dairy. Pescatarians can add fish.
Mix in fruit and vegetables for nutrients, especially non-starchy ones like broccoli, cauliflower, peppers, and mushrooms.
Love Yourself Meal Box Review
Ok, when I first heard the name Love Yourself, I immediately thought of the Justin Bieber song. My much-cooler daughter said it was also the name of albums from K-Pop band, BTS.
Love Yourself Diet
We love that the Love Yourself diet was created by chefs and dietitions. There’s no additives or preservatives contained in the Love Yourself food. AND, they are calorie-controlled and nutritionally balanced.
Keep track of your fitness goals easily as well by scanning in your Love Yourself Diet meal box into the super popular MyFitnessPal app.
Ready Cooked Meals Delivered To Your Door
Ready cooked meals delivered to your door are a great idea for a balanced diet. After all that’s what the Hollywood crowd does (the ones without their own private chefs!). It’s so much easier to control what you eat if someone caters to your diet with delicious food.
Love Yourself Food
The Love Yourself meal subscription box I was sent was calculated to be 1700 calories which was enough for one day. There was a breakfast, lunch, snack and dinner meal included in the Love Yourself box.
The breakfast was delicious. I usually skip breakfast but this carrot cake chia pudding dish was very filling. I had no hunger pangs like I usually do.
The lunch was also delicious – a creamy broccoli salad – a perfect lunch I would not ordinarily be bothered to make myself.
I didn’t need the snack as I don’t need to snack during the day. Yet, the chocolate vanilla praline was my favourite of the Love Yourself foods. The chocolate was rich and creamy.
I didn’t even need to heat the three meals above. The breakfast pudding and the broccoli salad tasted great chilled. The dinner on required a couple of minutes of heating in the microwave.
The dinner I felt was lacking in a bit of oomph. It was tasty but a bit bland. It doesn’t help that I make an excellent egg fried rice so I couldn’t help comparing what I would make to the Love Yourself box version.
Love Yourself Food Review
So what are the plus points of a Love Yourself Meal Subscription Box?
- built-in calorie control
- high quality
- fast and easy to make
- easy delivery to your door during the day
- The packaging is easy to recycle and eco-friendly for the most part.
What would I improve about the Love Yourself Meal Subscription Box?
- There’s a disconnect between microwaving food and eating healthy.
- The presentation looked a bit grim. White boxes with a clump of food that reminded me of what astronauts freeze-dried portions in outer space.
- Don’t expect your food to look like the pretty photos you see on the Love Yourself website.
- The food was tasty but don’t count on any ethnic/interesting combinations for your meals.
If you are looking for a fast, healthy option for vegetarian keto and don’t have the time/energy to cook for yourself, Love Yourself food boxes are an excellent choice.
