I recently sampled a days menu of the Total Diet Food (TDF) delivery service. TDF take a bespoke approach to each client’s menu, taking into account any allergies, food likes and dislikes and – most importantly – any specific diet you are following on the advice of a nutrition professional. The order form is really comprehensive so there are plenty of opportunities to be clear about your preferences.

When it came to D-day I work up to find my TDF cool bag on my doorstep (apparently all deliveries are completed by 6.30am which is pretty impressive in my book!).

My day’s menu:


Feta cheese and red pepper spread with wholegrain rye bread and avocado

Morning snack

Sesame orange segments


Smoked salmon and rice paper roll with sweet potatoes mooli Beetroot, celery and lemon -olive oil dressing

Afternoon snack

Stewed plums, pears and low – fat natural yoghurt


Salmon fish cakes with red pepper sauce served with brown rice, cauliflower and celeriac

Lunch smoked salmon rice paper roll

Lunch: smoked salmon rice paper roll

It was quite a novelty to have everything so carefully planned out on my behalf! Each meal was crammed with fresh fruit and veg. I think food delivery services like TDF can be a great option if you can afford to do it and have good intentions, but lack time. The highly personalised menus can help you adjust to new diets to avoid the initial “I’m -not -sure -what -I’m -allowed -to -eat” wilderness.
