Review: The Longevity Diet in a Box

I am glad that my order for Nutrition for Longevity, healthy prepared meals, came at the right time when indoor dining is once again shut-down. With the onslaught of winter weather, outdoor dining in restaurants may not be the best idea in this part of the world.

Lunch and dinner with a bottle of olive oil by Nutrition for Longevity

Nutrition for Longevity's 3-day trial pescatarian box comes with lunch boxes that contain mostly lighter meals, such as the: 

  • Okinawa cold somen noodle salad
  • Nicoyan forbidden black rice bowl 
  • Loma linda quinoa cranberry salad

The dinner boxes are warmer meals with meatier proteins, such as the: 

  • Okinawa teriyaki with glazed vegetables and haddock
  • Nicoyan paella with shrimp 
  • Calabrian salmon with quinoa 

Each box comes with its own heating instructions, nutritional facts, ingredients, and expiry date.  

I first tried the paella with shrimp, which is a healthier version with black forbidden rice, peas, corn, and spices. After microwaving it for 3 minutes, the rice and shrimp looked dry. The taste also needed a little more oomph, so I added some sriracha and a splash of soy sauce to bring out the flavors. As an avid seafood lover, I do appreciate prepared meals with fresher seafood. Unfortunately, the small shrimps in the paella were overcooked and needed a squeeze of lemon to liven it up. I'm hoping that the haddock fish and salmon will withstand the microwave or oven heating process better. 

Let's eat!
With holidays in full swing, it is highly important to keep our diets in check. Looking forward to trying the rest of my longevity meals, which are gluten-free and plant-forward to help us get the needed fiber, fruits, and vegetables in our diet.
