Ketoned Bodies Meal Delivery Review 2019

Editor’s Rating: 8/10

 

What is Ketoned Bodies? Ketoned Bodies is a keto meal delivery service that of course prepares keto friendly food for you and deliver them straight to your doormat. Well, you may expect to receive ingredients and a recipe to whip up your meal, but it is actually much more convenient than that.  All you have to do, is throw them in the oven or microwave to heat up and it is good to go.

Key takeaways:

  • Great easy service for keto dieters who lead busy lifestyle
  • Very convenient

 

Ketoned Bodies

Ketoned Bodies was founded by Paul Winberry Jr in 2017. An interested fact is that Chef Winberry was the sous-chef to Douglas Keane, the winner of Top Chef Masters on Season 5.

Ketoned Bodies only used 100% grass-fed and pastured meats, organic produced and they only cook with stainless cooking materials. They are dedicated to provide their customers with the best quality and food that are good for their bodies.

The reason why they do not use grain-fed meat is not that it hinders your ability to reach ketosis, but they claim that 100% grass-fed meat as well as pastured meat will help decrease inflammation in your body and it is good for your body, while grain-fed meat is otherwise.

 

Pricing

Ketoned Bodies prices are $14.95 per meal which is a bit on the high side you can say. Sometimes, they even have some special meal to offer and would cost $19.95 per meal. Frankly speaking, I wouldn’t get that on a regular day, but that’s just me speaking.

The prices mentioned are of course not inclusive of shipping. If you are more of a thrifty person like myself, then you might want to consider some of the packages they offer. I personally feel it makes it much more reasonable to order in a bundle..

Ketoned Bodies packages are as below

 

  • 15 meals 15 meals for $165 which makes it $11 per meal
  • 21 meals for $210 which makes it $10 per meal
  • 84 meals for $800 which makes it $9.52 per meal

 

With the package, I am much more attracted to being a regular customer as you could save a lot in the long run, especially if you are relying on keto meal deliveries to keep your diet on course.

However, if you are a bit suspicious or doubtful about their service, you could always try getting individual meals first and once or if you start to trust them, you can go for the package. On top of that, by ordering any of of the packages, your shipping charges will be waived as a minimum order of 11 meals will not be charged on shipping.

 

 

 

Ordering

The ordering process is not complicated really. You can log on to their website to have access to their entire menu. As I’ve been looking through, I did notice that the menu are constantly updated and things are being put on and taken off the menu.

When ordering, just to be sure of what you are taking, you could even look through their ingredients list and nutritional content. You can check out the user reviews too if you are not sure about what you are ordering.

Ordering is simple, all you have to do is look through the menu and add the ones you would want to order into your cart. You don’t have to order within a package, you are free to select the meals independently of your other orders. It is a similar process to doing some online clothing shopping.

I found the ordering process really convenient and I liked that they use this concept instead of making things complicated. However, the site is not the best of sites being relatively new, so sometimes you may face some issues.

Do take note of one thing, and that is the nutritional facts of the meals. Some of the meals are a bit higher in carbs and that is not good news to extremely strict keto dieters.

 

Packaging

Well, one of the things i was very pleased about is that the meals were packed in recyclable containers because I am not a fan of wasting and I’m sure you aren’t too. Also the containers they use are safe to put in both the microwave and oven, so you don’t have to worry about dumping them straight in while their still in the containers.

I would advise you to take note of the instructions. It is not necessary to do any additional preparation. Heating up is not rocket science, you can either throw them in the microwave for 4 minutes at medium power or toss them in the oven for roughly 20 minutes at 350 degrees. I am quite a lazy person, I confess, so I use the microwave for almost all my meals.

When the meals arrive, if you are ordering for a few days meals or maybe a week or so, you can keep them in the refrigerator to last for up to 3-4 days, just to be safe. Anything longer than that, I would put them in freezer.

How beneficial is it for your Keto diet?

The meals that are listed on their site have only 20 grams or less net carbs so that is a plus point. Furthermore, as I mentioned earlier, Ketoned Bodies use 100% grass-fed beef and 100% pastured eggs poultry and pork which makes it more healthy and good for your body.

I personally find this really important as I believe that most keto dieters follow this diet to have a happy body and mind. The meals are grain free, gluten free, soy free, GMOs free, preservatives free and free of canola or lower grade vegetable oils.

As I have been eating their meals, I realize that I have been getting into ketosis way easier than when I used prep my own meals. I had some struggle achieving ketosis even with supplements when I cooked my own meals, so I do have confidence that there are experts behind Ketoned Bodies.

My experience with Ketoned Bodies’ meals

 

Chicken Enchilada and Mashed Cauliflower 

The mexican dish was really among my top pick. It was well stuffed with seasoned chicken and lots of cauliflower rice too. I was pretty full after finishing the meal but not to the extent where I feel horrible. I really liked the texture of the tortilla. It is made with cassava root. So the downside is that, it is not too low in carbs. Overall, it did taste really good and it was really authentic.

Pork Chops with Sauteed Zucchini and Mashed Cauliflower

The meat was cooked really well and was quite tender. The zucchini was nice too, but not everyone loved them too much. The mashed cauliflower was really nice. It was cooked and seasoned really well and was eaten with a really tasty sauce.

 

Curried Lamb with Mashed Cauliflower

I quite liked this one too, maybe not my favorite but after eating similar kind of meals over the days, I was happy to mix it up by having some curry. The lamb was a bit tough so I did need to use some effort to get them into my system, but when I ate cut them into smaller pieces then it was fine.

White Pasta-less Lasagna

 

This meal was also a double thumbs up. It was really flavorful making it taste so good. You can taste the mozzarella in every bite. The chicken is 100% Pastured chicken thighs cooked with butter and garlic. There were broccoli and the cream was heavenly too.

 

Keto Scramble with Bacon

I had this one for breakfast and I really loved it. The scramble eggs were cooked so well with cheddar and it was really fluffy. It had a side of broccoli and the bacon was super tasty. I was really happy and you can’t really go wrong with bacon and eggs.

 

Chili Verdes Chicken with Smoky Refried “Beans.”

 

The beans used for this dish are made from fried eggplant and bacon. They used chicken thigh and it tasted really good, though I think I might have preferred having chicken breast instead. The sauce made everything go so well together. The texture of the beans was a bit funny but for me it tasted really good. The bacon helped give it something extra.

 

Grilled Ribeye with Bacon-butter Brussels Sprouts

This one was really surprising because I was unsure about eating steak from the microwave. But it turned out really amazing. Somehow it reheated really well and the meat was not compromised. The seasoning again was perfect and they did offer a generous amount. I felt this was really money well spent.

Chicken Stew with Italian Sausage and Mashed Cauliflower

 

I enjoyed this one too, maybe not my favorite but I was happy to have it. It was seasoned pretty well, the flavor was good, frankly speaking there was nothing really wrong about this dish. Possibly it is just because it is not one of my preference. Maybe if you are a stew lover, you might appreciate it much more than I did.

 

Pros

 

  • The meals are all crafted by hand by a Michelin-starred chef.
  • The meals are organic and most importantly low in carbs
  • Meats are 100% grass-fed and pastured meats.
  • Ketoned Bodies uses only stainless steel cookware.
  • Ketoned have more than 20 meals to offer so you have quite a large option to select from, plus it is constantly being updated.
  • Ketoned Bodies are pretty generous with their portion and I didn’t have the need to snack more after having my meals.

 

Cons

 

  • The website is not great so sometimes you may face some difficulties making your orders.
  • Some people have complaints about shipment period and said that it took longer than what it was said to be.
  • It is quite overpriced for a regular meal.
  • Too much cauliflower! Cauliflower is the side for almost all meals and it gets so boring and I personally got sick of it after a few days. I hope they do something about this.

 

 

Who should use Ketoned Bodies Delivery Service?

Well, for people like me who are extremely lazy to cook and also not to mention a bad one, I really benefit from food delivery. Of course, most food delivery offer things that are not so keto friendly, hence getting them from Ketoned Bodies is helpful as I don’t always need to look through the nutritional facts thoroughly for every meal.

I am also not the kind of person who like to go out to grab my lunch and dinner all the time, as I find it waste of time. So being able to just dump them in the oven or microwave helps a lot.

The price are a bit on the high side for me, but I think it is super good to also order some of these meals to stock in the freezer. On days when you have nothing to eat, it is gonna turn out to be a life saver.

About The Author

Losing weight has always been a hard thing for me. I would stick to a strict diet, eating as little as I possibly could to only lose a few pounds. Sadly, after a sweet buffet dinner, I would gain all the “lost” weight back. Keto Diet allows me to consistently lose and maintain my weight while enjoying the most fattening food I can possibly imagine. Let me show you how.
