Lite n’ Easy Meal Delivery Review & Guide

Preparing healthy breakfasts, lunches and dinners every day is both time-consuming and stressful. But those weight loss shakes and meal replacements just don’t do it for you. You want real food, but you also want to lose weight and be your healthiest self. What do you do? Lite n’ Easy may be your answer. The home delivery service brings fresh food to your door that requires no more effort than popping a meal in the microwave or oven. Is Lite n’ Easy what you’ve been searching for?

What is Lite n’ Easy?

Lite n’ Easy is a personalised meal delivery service designed for weight loss, weight management, and for people who are too busy to prepare healthy nutritious meals every day. Meals are delivered straight to your door and simply require heating. The company claims that its focus on light, fresh and healthy ingredients helps customers better manage their weight.

Where and when does Lite n’ Easy deliver?

Lite n’ Easy is available to people across Australia. You’ll need to check its website to find out whether it delivers to your area.

There are no set delivery times and orders can arrive anytime during the scheduled day. Don’t worry, you don’t need to be home to accept your package. Items are contained in a sealed esky with dry ice and a thermal optimiser to keep everything cool.

Can I eat Lite n’ Easy if I have a food allergy or intolerance?

The Lite n’ Easy menu isn’t designed to cater for special dietary requirements such as vegetarians, people with food allergies or those who are coeliac. The company recommends anyone with a life-threatening food intolerance should stay away from ready meals, including those made by Lite n’ Easy. Generally, you can swap between certain meal options. But it’s not flexible enough to accommodate specific intolerances.

Is Lite n’ Easy just for losing weight?

While many people use Lite n’ Easy to lose weight and stick with it as an easy way to maintain their weight, it’s also a way for busy people to enjoy healthy meals without all of the time and stress of planning and cooking yourself. Rather than needing to carefully plan and prepare healthy meals, with Lite n’ Easy you just select your meal plan and which meals you’d like, and Lite n’ Easy does the hard work for you. The menu is pretty varied and changes seasonally, so you’re unlikely to get bored.

What do you get with Lite n’ Easy?

The Lite n’ Easy website has a guide for finding the meal plan right for you. You can choose between the 1200, 1500 or 1800 calorie menus (5000, 6300 or 7500 kilojoules). The full meal plan package includes breakfast, lunch and dinner, or you can choose any combination of which meals you would like prepared. There are also snacks and desserts to add to your order.

If you choose to have only some of your meals prepared by Lite n’ Easy (for example breakfast and dinner), then your full calorie limit won’t be covered by those meals. This allows you full flexibility to control your daily choices, but it does put more planning responsibility in your hands.

How do I use Lite n’ Easy?

You can find everything you need to order from Lite n’ Easy on its website. You can browse the latest menus, select and place your order, then wait for it to arrive. It’s pretty simple! You can change your order each time if you wish, so you can explore how to make Lite n’ Easy work best for you. If you’re having trouble with the website, you can give Lite n’ Easy a call for assistance.

Is Lite n’ Easy worth the money?
