During the summer I was following a diet plan with The Delicious Nutritionist. I have been wanting to eat healthier for a while now, but I can never find the right thing that works for me. I need something that is quick and easy to prepare that I can stick to.
About The Delicious Nutritionist
The Delicious Nutritionist is Melissa Kuman. Melissa is a registered associate nutritionist with a First Class degree in Food and Human Nutrition. Melissa believes that nutritious meals should be fun and tasty and available to everyone. Not everyone has access to the correct information so Melissa is using her knowledge and training to create bespoke food plans to help you tackle your issues with food and get back on track when it comes to eating correctly.
The Delicious Nutritionist offers both weight management plans and an intuitive eating plan. This means putting weight loss on the back burner as you get yourself into a better relationship with food and start to eat better. This isn’t a fad weight loss diet but a long term lifestyle change when it comes to food so you can sustain your plan in the long term.
My 4-Week Plan With The Healthy Nutritionist
Yoghurt & Berries
Melissa created a 4-week plan for me. It took a few tries to get it correct but we managed to figure it out in the end. As a busy mum of two and a hectic work schedule, I needed something that was quick and easy to prepare as I don’t have a lot of time. And this was absolutely normal. We just needed time to know each other and also to see how the first weeks went.
We asked Melissa to give us a practical plan, with fewer ingredients and that were very quick to prepare. The preparation time was very important for us, so she tweaked the meals to achieve this.
15 Minute Halibut with Dill Pesto
With the 4 week plan, you get 2 consultations with Melissa and a full shopping list to enable you to create your meals.
I have done this for 4 weeks but I am not going to lie, I have been super inconsistent because of already planned commitments such as events, press trips, school gatherings etc. It wasn’t easy to follow each recipe but I have tried my best considering I wasn’t around to prepare this food most of the time.
Chicken with Oven-Baked Potato Wedges
I was lucky that Nick was keen to help me and do this new meal plan with me. He enjoys cooking so he was happy to cook our dinners during the week as well as our meals during the weekends. The meals during the day were easy and quick for me to do. By week 3 we were able to follow the meals better as we got used to it. As I said, there were many times I couldn’t do it but I always tried to choose reasonable alternatives if I was out and about.
Chorizo Stuffed Avocado Boats
The main purpose for me was to eat healthier. Change my diet to include more fruit and vegetables as well as eating food that will help with my PCOS history as well as reducing my sugar intake because at some point my levels were high. Having 2 diabetic parents I know I need to be careful and take care of myself too.
Spinach, Tomato & Goat Cheese Pizza
I was after a change in my diet rather than actually lose weight. I have lost weight doing this diet but very slowly. Considering the very busy 4 weeks I have had, I have lost about 2 kilos. The ideal scenario would have been 4 kilos for those 4 weeks but each person reacts differently. Perhaps I need to include more exercise in my daily routine to help with the diet too.
What We Thought Of The Meals
Nick and I have been enjoying the meals that Melissa has given to us. They have been easy to prepare and best of all very tasty. It is nice to be able to eat healthy food but cooked properly.
Baked Salmon with Broccoli & Quinoa
We have tried so many different recipes during these 4 weeks. Our favourite meals are:
- Toast with Nut Butter, Banana & Hemp Seeds
- Yoghurt & Berries
- Eggs & Toast
- Mediterranean Scramble
- Strawberry Coconut Overnight Oats
- Pork Belly Cauliflower Fried Rice
- Turkey Hummus Sandwich
- Salmon Stuffed Avocado Boats
- Spinach, Tomato & Goat Cheese Pizza
- Smoked Salmon Wrapped Avocado
- Popcorn Chicken with Buttery Broccolini
- Oven-Baked Potato Wedges
- Ground Beef & Zucchini Noodles
- 15 Minute Halibut with Dill Pesto
- Baked Salmon with Broccoli & Quinoa
- Pan-Seared Pork Chops
- One Pan Cod and Sweet Potato
The meals are really simple to prepare with lots of healthy ingredients so you don’t actually feel like you are dieting. Check my Instagram Stories. This was great for Nick and me as it meant we could stick to it easier. We still use her meal plans and tend to organise our week around them. It is nice to be able to do this together and we are constantly looking for a healthy lifestyle and I think Melissa did a great job providing this for us as well as letting us try great and tasty meals.
