So how do the deliveries work?
When you make your order, you can put in some instructions for the driver. You are limited to 200 characters which is not enough to be honest, and so my first delivery ended up being placed on the back outdoor table at 7am. Had I not been home, and had I not gone out to get it right away, it probably would have ended up in full sun within an hour. My instructions tried to say to put it under the verandah attached to the garage but apparently epic fail..
The second time I taped a note to the gate and left the old esky where I wanted the new one to be placed. That worked out great. The deliveries arrive so early in the morning, all I ever hear is the gate open and gravel crunching. I don’t know if it is the same person every week so I don’t know if I can take the note down, I guess for now I’ll leave it there. :)
So they don’t give you an approximate time or even morning or afternoon – it is best to plan to start eating Lite N Easy the day after it is delivered.
It arrives in a massive esky and there is dry ice in there to keep it cold if it has to be outside all day.
So what will I be eating this week? Sorry not the greatest pics –
The ones circled in maroon are what I’ll be eating – eg pikelets for breakfast then sliced turkey wrap for lunch.
54 Homestyle Macaroni x1
68 Fettucine Provincale x1
70 Fishermans Pie x3
57 Tortilla Stack x1
72 Tortellini x1
Mostly these are vegetarian except for the fishermans pie – I still have some chicken stuff left from the last 2 weeks I can substitute if I get bored.
So there you have it – my food arrived, yay! There is less food than last week for obvious reasons – dropping 300 calories will do that. There is one less snack a day which is a good thing.
I do think it was a good idea (for me at least) to do at least one week of 1500 calories first, to get used to eating less at meals but not feeling hungry.
Later today – day 7 :)

Thanks, I have never seen a Lite & Easy meal, in the flesh so to speak, so I did not know what I was getting myself in for. Both my partner and I are planning to go on the meals, which will make it a lot easier, no watching someone else tuck into a dinner size plate of something nice. The only problem is that we are going to be struggling for freezer space. we are currently eating up what is in the freezer, so will probably stack on extra weight that we will have to lose.
Do you have to eat the bread that they supply? I love bread, particularly the wholegrain stuff that the supermarket bakes fresh, and would much prefer to eat that than stale old rolls that have to be heated.
Actually the bread is pretty decent but you could supply your own if you wanted, I can’t see why not. You’d just have to check the calorie count to try and find a similar calorie amount to what the Lite N Easy provides. :)
