Vegetarian Meal Delivery by The Sexy Chef + a Giveaway!

I’m always surprised when people ask me if I’m still “on a diet” ever since I gave up eating meat. The truth is, I decided awhile back that diets don’t work for me, and I’m not gonna do them anymore.

The Sexy Chef delivers their meals packed in paper bowls and plastic containers. Of course I still plated all my food, because plating is fun and in my opinion, it makes food taste better too!

I eat whatever I want, and I don’t want to eat beef, pork, or chicken anymore.  And this has nothing to do with being on a diet.

I’d describe my current diet as pesco-vegetarian.  I stick to a vegan diet most days, but when eating out with the family, on vacation, or other special occasions, I do eat fish and seafood.

Tofu arroz ala cubana. Arroz ala cubana is one of my favorite homestyle Filipino dishes and brings back fond memories of my childhood! I enjoyed this with a fried egg on top.

Just a few weeks ago, Rachel Alejandro of The Sexy Chef sent me an email asking if I’d like to try their Vegetarian Meal Delivery Service.  Of course I immediately said yes!

Hooray for five whole days of healthy, meatless meals delivered right to my doorstep. Yay for five whole days of not having to worry about what to eat!

Anyway, soon after Rachel and I exchanged emails, I was contacted by Stephanie B. Dorosan, nutrition specialist at The Sexy Chef.  Stephanie sent me their vegetarian menu with two options to choose from, and she said I could mix and match from both options too

Here’s what they sent me: sexychefmenu

Everything sounded so good!  But since “all of the above” wasn’t an option, I emailed back my choices and excitedly waited for delicious meatless meals to start appearing at my doorstep.

One thing I wasn’t expecting was how much having meals delivered felt like such a treat!  Every morning I really looked forward to receiving my food!  It’s kind of the same feeling I had when I was still in high school, and we would order a pizza and wait for it to arrive.  You know the feeling, right?

Scrambled tofu and bean burrito by The Sexy Chef. So yum!

It was really perfect timing too, because I put on so much weight on the two trips I went on these past two months. Not to mention all the holiday weight I gained that never went away! I’m a long way from anyone calling me fat, but I kind of needed a push back in the direction of healthy eating.

And after trying The Sexy Chef’s vegetarian meals for five whole days, I’m happy to report that their food really is delicious!  My personal favorites were the tofu satay, arroz ala cubana, scrambled tofu burrito, vegan sloppy joe, and veggie pad thai.  I wouldn’t mind eating these dishes all over again, and guarantee that even omnivores will enjoy them.

In addition to my daily packed lunches and dinners by The Sexy Chef, I also had oatmeal and coffee for breakfast and avocado on toast and chocolate almond milk whenever I felt like I needed a snack.

Vegetarian Pad Thai by The Sexy Chef, I topped mine with fresh cilantro!

The portion sizes were reasonable, but since I’m used to eating a lot more, it did take some getting used to.  We also went out for dinner 3 out of 5 nights, and I ended up eating my packed dinner for merienda on those nights (eep).

In spite of all these, though, my 5-day trial of The Sexy Chef has left me feeling lighter, healthier, and just fantastic overall!  Thank you so much, The Sexy Chef!

  1. After having three kids, I have put on a lot of weight. Its been 4 years since my last C-section and yet it is still a struggle to lose weight. I have tried diets and even slimming treatments but both did not work. It did not help too that I have PCOS, which contributes to having hormonal imbalance. I want to try The Sexy Chef food delivery to jumpstart my journey to a healthy lifestyle. Maybe this time around, I will be victorious in my battle with the weighing scale.

  5. Being a mom to an active 3-year old, and a wife to an impossibly stubborn picky carnivore husband who seems to love eating everything processed, I rarely have time to cook healthy meals for myself. It’s been 3 years, and my pregnancy weight is still hanging around. Mostly around my arms and thighs. Sigh. I constantly strive to eat healthy, believe me, and I love eating my vegetables, but it’s difficult when you’re stuck with repeatedly having them just steamed or stir-fried. Getting yummy, healthy food delivered to my doorstep would be such a wonderful treat! Who knows? When the hubby sees how delicious veggies can be, he just might decide to try and change his horrible food choices, too!

  7. I think eating healthy is the responsible thing to do. I may not always be at the top of my game when it comes to health but I do try and the Sexy Chef is a great way to start.
    Becoming sexy is actually just a bonus because if you are eating right, you are not wasting human resources by eating junk. (You can probably tell that I’m a minimalist, well newbie at least)

    I guess that’s it. Let’s all stay healthy, be happy, and make a contribution to society.

The Sexy Chef prepare meals that is just right and have enough nutrition that our body needed every day, and that is what I need now to control and enjoy what I eat and to be fit and sexy too.

  9. Hi! I am Juliana, a 15 year old competitive swimmer. Just like any youth athlete, I watch what I eat but I also give in to the occasional cheat days.:) Because I train about 3 hours a day, I eat a lot to have the energy to burn. I try to eat healthy and consume “real food” most of the time and I hope to see if I can get a balance between being a vegetarian and a competitive athlete. I love the vegetarian meals that my mom makes, but I am hoping to add more variety to my vegetables.:)

    Crossing my fingers that I win.:)
