Boxed Detox

I think we're Soulmates

Written by . Published on September 21st 2011.

Boxed Detox

AND so it begins. Waking up on day one was like waking up on Christmas morning. Rushing down the stairs with all the elegance of a baby rhinosceros, pillow creases still on my face and eyes all full of sleep, I actually couldn't wait to open my present, hmm hmm, serious journalistic food review box.

Years of excessive alcohol, coffee and sugar consumption have left my body a little worse for wear, but in a month's time (and four detox diet programmes) I'm expecting no less than a temple.

The diet: spill the beans
Soulmate Food is an individually tailored diet plan, designed according to each different clients needs by Soulmate's head chef and a Harley Street nutritionalist. Its addictive-free, organic and award-winning programme is perfect for the extremely allergic (or extremely fussy) client, as it works with your personal goals to create a calorie-controlled diet that ensures you eat the correct foods (excluding any intolerances and dislikes) in the correct portion size for your body type. All are nutritionally balanced and fad-free to help clients change their eating habits for life, rather than just for a week.

The menu: gourmet or gloop-ay?
Soulmate food is delicious and extremely fresh; it is prepared the evening before delivery, so nothing is ever frozen and is completely colouring and preservative free.

Here is an example of a day's menu:

Breakfast – free from Soulmate muesli
AM snack – vegetarian strawberry mousse
Lunch – Texas ginger squash with southwest salad
PM snack – vanilla spiced nuts with antioxidant boost
Dinner – deep south jerk vegetables with chilli baby corn cobs


The packaging: mum's been to Whole Foods or shameful Sainsbury's Basics?
Two days worth of food delivered every two days for one week in temperature-controlled vans. They have removed all non-recyclable packaging from the range so it is totally biodegradable. Even the bags are reusable!

The difficulty factor: Cheat-free breeze or desparation pizza on speedial?
Breeze! Well almost. Although a single miso soup for lunch may as well have been half a raisin for all the good it did my hunger pangs. And on day one, when I went to pick up my box from the front garden, a few little snails were casually sunbathing on top and I almost considered adding them to the snacks...

The price: Stinking rich stilton or budget brie?
Prices start from £25 a day, which isn't bad when you consider the variety and quality of the ingredients.

I've tried this 'diet' and it's great. You're never hungry and the meals are very satisfying. Highly recommended!
