Boxed Detox

Established in 2003 by Jennifer Irvine, The Pure Package is London’s oldest diet delivery company.They have a proven track record of helping clients achieve their personal health goals, such as losing weight, or in my case, detoxing one extremely punished body.Tried by stars including Erin O' Connor and Hugh Jackman, if its credentials are anything to go by, The Pure Package is way ahead of its game.

The diet: spill the beans
As the diet is based on portion control, rather than excluding certain food types, there is an enormous variety in the meals delivered and the diet is totally fad-free. A personalised service ensures that each delivery is tailored to you and your tastes and what you want to achieve.

The menu: gourmet or gloop-ay?
The menu is created by award-winning chefs with award-winning ingredients, and you can certainly tell. I warmly welcomed foods I'd never even tried before, such as quail eggs and pearled spelt, and as The Pure Package do not outsource the manufacturers of their food, they have have the best control over its quality meaning every item on the menu is fresh and delicious. Here is an example of a day's food:

Breakfast: banana bircher muesli
AM snack:
nectarine and pumpkin seeds
organic tofu and cashew nut salad
PM snack:
summer jelly pudding
rasam curried chickpeas

The packaging: mum's been to Whole Foods or shameful Sainsbury's Basics?

Fresh produce is delivered daily to your door. I have to admit, that on the one of the final day's deliveries, my package was nowhere to be found, but it seems it was taken by a passer-by, rather than not delivered! And to be fair to The Pure Package, after a quick phone call, they redivered the food to my office within an hour.

The difficulty factor: Cheat-free breeze or desparation pizza on speedial?

So easy, in fact, I would truly like to eat these meals for the rest of my life. They were completely delicious, the portions were the perfect size.

The price: Stinking rich stilton or budget brie?

£39.95 per day for ten days.

The price is fairly expensive. Yet this includes daily delivery, speaking to a team member as often as you need, ethically sourced ingredients and you can opt in and out of the service, if you give notice you do not have to pay for food on days that you are away
