Product Review: Eatology’s Mediterranean Meal Plan

Product Review Eatology Mediterranean Meal Plan

By Relena Sei and James Kwan

Eatology’s new meal plan offers delights and disappointments in equal measure

Eatology is a Hong Kong-based meal plan and food delivery startups that caters to a range of diet choices including Paleo, Low-Carb Gluten Free, and Keto. We had previously tried Eatology’s Paleo diet meal plan, and this time, we returned to try out the new Mediterranean diet plan.

On first impression, we were a little surprised – the menu had said English Muffin, but instead we found a chilled bagel with sides of smoked salmon and avocado. The smoked salmon was a complete delight to our taste buds; there were chopped pieces of salmon mixed lightly with cream cheese and scallion. The avocado spread that came along elevated the breakfast sandwich with hints of mediterranean flavors, which we absolutely relished. It was quite a generous portion, and tasted extremely fresh. Having this chilled bagel seemed like the perfect start to our day.

The meal plan came with two snacks, the first of which was a baked kibbeh with homemade sauce. Having never eaten kibbeh, we weren’t sure what to expect, but it reminded us of couscous in a tartar sauce. This meal was more on the liquid side, but tasted good.

In a conscious attempt to avoid unhealthy food, we usually avoid indulging too much in sauces, as they are generally rich in calories. But Eatology does this brilliant thing where they mention the calorie count of the ordered meal. So for those who are health conscious like us, this is a great idea. We could genuinely enjoy the sauce guilt-free, as we knew that it wasn’t very high on calories.

The other snack provided in the box was a cauliflower muffin – this one was a little disappointing. For starters, it didn’t look very appetizing, and there was hardly any texture to it. Moreover, we were expecting something sweeter but it was savory. On top of that, it didn’t smell very appealing either.

Moving on to lunch, we had delicious vegetable spaghetti and chicken burgers. Although not very fond of vegetables in general, we liked this spaghetti because it tasted nothing like vegetables, while still enjoying some of the nutritional benefits. It tasted quite good, so it was easy for us to gorge on it. The chicken burger was juicy and the sauce it came with was perfect. It’s extremely hard to find healthy food that is also tasty – this one really did it.

Our last meal of the day from Eatology, ‘Honey-Mongolian Grass-Fed Beef with Pumpkin Steamed Rice,’ wasn’t as much of a delicacy as our lunch had been. The rice they served was a bit too hard, and although the texture of the beef was good, it didn’t taste that great. We probably had our expectations raised too high after the wholesome and delicious meal we had for lunch.

Overall, we had a positive experience for the most part, with breakfast and lunch both very enjoyable highlights. However, we think it was a little too much food in terms of the number of meals. It would be convenient if we were working at the office all day, but not if we had lunch or dinner meetings. We therefore had to plan carefully as to which day to order.

The packaging of the food was quite well done. Their menu has a lot of variety, which is nice. What we liked most though, was that they have specified the calorie count for each meal, along with the breakdown of carbs, protein, and fats on their menu. Eatology’s meals are definitely worth a try!
