We LOVE food; real, nutritious food. So when we came across newly launched gourmet organic meal plan delivery service, Love Food, we felt it was speaking to us directly. We had a moment.
Much as we’d all love to have the time to cook all the time, there are weeks or months where life gets a bit hectic. Rather than getting off track with your diet and into bad habits, these are the times we think food delivery services like Love Food are ideal – they provide nutritious food straight to you daily with no-fuss on your part.

The gourmet organic meal plan delivery service offers a variety of nutritional food plans using fresh local produce, while also promoting sustainability. All food is cooked from scratch with zero preservatives, and their Australian chefs make sure to use local organic product, free range and grass fed meats, and food which are 100 percent processed free, GMO, refined sugar and additive free.
Love Food has the extra bonus of an eased conscience. The healthy gourmet specialists also support a sustainable environment by packaging food in reusable glass containers and reusing these, rather than creating waste.
Love Food offers three types of meal plans, depending on your lifestyle; Vitality, Lifestyle and Power, with gluten and dairy free options.
Vitality is full of wholesome ingredients, which are free from added sugar, low GI and is packed full of nutrition and is perfect for those who are trying to watch their waistline. Lifestyle is Paleolithic, or based on the Paleo diet. CrossFitters, listen up! This nutrient dense anti-inflammatory meal plan uses nature’s finest ingredients, completely organic ingredients, grass fed and free range meats and is also totally gluten free, dairy free, refined sugar free and low GI.
Power is for the more active person and is packed full of protein and you will receive at least four meals of protein per day. In each serving you can expect to receive at least: men 150g-200g women: 100-150grams of protein.
When we tried some of the food from the Lifestyle meal plan, we found the meals delicious and the ingredients of high quality. The steak was tender and tasty, the fish fresh and well-cooked, and the vegetables fresh and varied. Food aside, we especially liked the bottles of naturally flavoured water, with bursts of lemon/ginger and watermelon making them a truly refreshing hydration source.
Love Food can also cater to dietary requirements and works with customers to structure an ideal monthly plan. Monthly menus are shared upfront while all meals are delivered to your preferred address, whether at home or office.
In general, we found the food to be the opposite of bland (which we have, at times, found with other meal plan services), the service great and the extra factor of reusable containers eased our environmental conscience as well, so kudos to the company for that.
Meal plans start from 729Dhs per week. To learn more about Love Food, check out their FitnessLink profile.
