What is the calorie count of your meals?
Losing weight isn't all about cutting calories. Your brain is looking for nutrients, not calories" says Dr. Oz
At Love Food we want to take the attention away from calorie counting and put focus and attention to high quality healthy meals. We don’t believe in stringent calorie counting we believe in nourishing your body from within.
Calories are not all created equal. For example think of this; are 100 calories in two tablespoons of chocolate chips, the very same 100 calories in broccoli? NO, But there’s a huge difference in the way that they affect your appetite, your energy level, and your long-term health. The human body is a highly complex biochemical system with elaborate processes that regulate energy balance. Different foods go through different biochemical pathways.
At Love Food we are focusing on a well-balanced nutritional diet. The best part is you will shed the kgs and feel great, all whilst keeping your taste buds extremely happy!!
What is the best way to heat the meals?
When reheating the food, we recommend where possible, reheating your food on either the stovetop or in the oven. Microwaves heat food by causing water molecules to resonate at very high frequencies and eventually turn to steam, which heats your food. Whilst this can rapidly heat your food, what most people fail to realize is that it also causes a change in your food's chemical structure. For this reason we recommend using the stove or oven over the microwave.
What is the best way to store the meals?
Please make sure your food is stored in a fridge below the temperature of 5 degrees Celsius. All the food and packaging will be labeled accordingly, so in the case that your food doesn’t need chilling it will clearly be labeled.
How many days do the meals last before they expire?
All meals are best consumed on the day of delivery. If you have skipped a meal, make sure it has been refrigerated since receiving then we advise you not to keep it longer than 2 days.
What happens on my day off (Friday)?
Friday is your day to let your hair down, enjoy that glass of wine, or that piece of chocolate. But obviously everything in moderation, don’t go too crazy! Listen to your body. If your main objective is weight loss try to stick to one ‘naughty’ meal instead of eating bad the whole day.
