My Cuisine Delight, is a food delivery service that allows clients to order meals touted as being healthy and following the USDA and FDA healthy guidelines.
They are presented as being recommended by doctors and physicians.
Their website offers tools such as “Ask A Nutritionist” where clients can read frequently asked questions, as well as email the nutritionist and ask their own questions.
There are other weight loss tools offered by the company such as a BMI calculator, a tracking log where users can track their diet and exercise, and nutrition tips.
While this food delivery company does stay within the guidelines put forth by the FDA and the USDA, they barely stay within. For example, while the FDA and USDA recommend a sodium intake of under 2,000 mg of sodium per day, they also frequently state under 1,200 mg is best. Each meal My Cuisine Delight packages has 600 mg of sodium. Three meals add up to 1,800 mg before adding snacks.
There are four different meal plans offered. Each is a one week supply of food, providing breakfast, lunch and dinner. The four meal plans offered are:
- DeLight One– cost for 21 meals, seven days of breakfast, lunch, and dinner, is $182 plus shipping and handling. The breakfast menu repeats twice, so clients need to be a fan of oatmeal, rice pudding, and semolina. The breakfast menu is the same for all four meal plans. With meal number one, clients also need to be a fan of carrots, as they are served three times in a week, in meals such as Seared Pork Tenderloin with Spiced Green Lentils and Silky Carrot Puree. With the dinner menu, clients eat seafood in the form of fish and scallops four times and chicken three times.
- DeLight Two– the cost here is the same at $182 plus shipping and handling. The breakfast menu is the same as DeLight One, and dinner consists of four fish meals and two pork meals, along with one turkey meal. Sweet potatoes are heavily featured in the lunch rotation as is veal and lamb.
- Meat and Poultry Feast– the cost rises here to $210 plus shipping and handling. Same breakfast menu, carrots again are the main feature on the lunch menu, however, seafood disappears from this meal. Lunch and dinner are composed of veal, pork, chicken, and beef. Lentils are eaten almost every day for lunch.
- Seafood Lovers– Yet another cost increase drives these 21 meals to a price of $238 plus shipping and handling. Again,the same breakfast is served. Lunch and dinner take a turn with the addition of Tilapia, Pollock, and trout. The word seafood is misleading, as each meal is a fish course, not a true seafood course.
Snacks are not included and it is strongly recommended by this company that clients add fruits, green salads, and dairy to the meals, as well as adding two snacks throughout the day. While technically there is a month of different foods if each meal plan is ordered, those who do not like fish are stuck with only being able to order the Meat and Poultry Feast, as fish figures prominently in every other plan.
While each meal is balanced and does adhere to the FDA and USDA guidelines, there are no meals for those who have chosen and labeled for a low-carb lifestyle, a kosher lifestyle, or who must follow a special diabetic lifestyle. There is no way to substitute and clients cannot pick their own meals day-by-day.
Unlike some meal delivery companies, there is no minimum purchase. A client can try for one week and then never order again. Ordering can be done online or via telephone, and customer service can be reached via phone, email, or postal mail.
My Cuisine Delight offers a 100 percent money back guarantee if clients are not happy with their meals. All food is prepared in the “sous-vide” style, which means it is cooked, then vacuum packed. Meals can be reheated in the microwave or by boiling the packages. They are delivered frozen via UPS and are only available in select portions of the East Coast. Participating states include:
There are many tips offered by the company including recipes for snacks and desserts, exercise tips, and more. While the recipes offered sound delicious, unfortunately they use strange measurements.
