What if instead of searching online for hours looking for delicious, low carb diet recipes, you could have entire meal plans sent to your inbox auto magically each week – just in time for grocery shopping day?
That’s exactly what Tasteaholics offers when you sign up for their Low Carb Weekly Meal Plan service. As low as $7.49 per month, they promise delicious, done-for-you meal plans complete with recipes and shopping lists.
When people tend to fail at their weight loss goals, it’s for two main reasons: The diet plans aren’t simple enough and they get bored with the food.
I can totally relate to that so when I saw what Tasteaholics had to offer, I had to try it. Here’s my honest review.
The Tasteaholics Low Carb Weekly Meal Plan
Tasteaholics offers a very low carb, high fat diet plan called Keto, short for Ketogenic. Ketogenic diet plans normally range anywhere from 20 to 60 grams of carbs per day with overall calories to come from 70% fat, 25% protein, and 5% carbohydrates.
When your body goes into Ketosis, it uses fat as it’s main energy source instead of the glucose created by carbs resulting in more efficient weight loss. And since you don’t eat starchy carbs on this diet, your body doesn’t have to deal with insulin spikes so you’ll feel more satisfied, your cravings disappear, and you’ll have more energy, as well.
Tasteaholics offers 3 plans to choose from: Monthly at $9.99, quarterly ($8.33 per month), or yearly ($7.49 per mo), and ordering was super simple. No obnoxious up sells!
The process took just a few simple clicks and I had my first weekly meal plan complete with the following:
- Week-at-a-glance – a very nicely laid out overview of the week including daily calories, fat, protein, and carb counts so I don’t have to take time to figure it all out
- Shopping list – grouped by meats, dairy, produce and pantry items, this makes my supermarket visit quicker, who wants to hang out here for an hour or more when you’ve got better things to do with your time?
- Snack ideas – it’s super important to have handy snacks at the ready so you can avoid the all to available starchy, sugary snacks that seem to be everywhere
- Substitutes for common food allergies – no, you don’t have to figure this out either, a very nice additional benefit, tailored to the week’s recipes
Low Carb Diet Recipes
I think one of the best features of the Tasteaholics recipes is that the ingredients aren’t exotic or expensive, they can be found at pretty much any supermarket. I live in the middle of nowhere and I found all of this week’s ingredients at Walmart except for the sugar substitute erythritol, but it’s easy to order from Amazon
Here’s a brief sample of my first week: Chorizo and Red Pepper Skillet, Ham & Egg Souffles with Avocado, Chili Con Carne, Herbed Dijon Chicken, Bacon Pancakes, & Cheesy Baked Shepherd’s Pie.
Sticking to the menu exactly, the highest daily carb count was 26.5 grams, but if your carb goal is a little higher, you can certainly add more veggies, a snack or low carb dessert and still stay on track to lose weight.
My overall opinion of the Tasteaholics Low Carb Weekly Meal Plan – 4.5 of 5 Stars
The only reason I didn’t give it 5 Stars is that I kind of wish the recipes came with pictures. For instance, the Crispy Pork Belly recipe did not sound that appetizing to me, so I passed on it. However, my southern friends tell me that pork belly is incredible, so…
- Fast & easy ordering, no annoying up sells
- Good value – A totally done-for-you week of meals and recipes
- Simple, tasty and satisfying recipes
- Organized shopping list
- Snack recommendations
- Food allergy substitutes
