Gourmet Portions: Yummy Healthy Meals Delivered Right at Your Doorstep
What’s in the bag? (take 2)
The title already sort of gave it away =b … but we’ll go with it.
Living in the digital age, one cannot help but adopt a sedentary lifestyle when almost everything you need is at your fingertips. (I’m longing for the 5th Element days when you can make a whole roast chicken from a few dashes of whatever that powder was and putting it in the ‘microwave oven’. “Chicken, food”, say it like Leeloo Dallas … multipass … with a shrug of her shoulders full of ‘gigil’).
I usually wake up, sit in front of PC and start working. More often than not, I don’t eat until I finish what I’m doing. (Especially grueling when I’m working on something that takes more than four hours. Shyeew.) I don’t like the idea of losing my momentum just because I stopped to cook something I guess and so I opt for bread or even just down a glass of juice so I could get back to the keyboard to finish the task at hand.
Such an unhealthy sched for eating, true; and thanks to this new health food concept in Baguio, that can stop. We don’t have to eat unhealthily (and at unhealthful intervals) ever again. While they mainly cater to people on a diet who want to ensure that they have a low caloric intake everyday (1,200 to 1,500 calories) without the hassle of doing the measurements and the food prep themselves, workaholics and busy-busy people can benefit from these meal plans as well. \m/
Looking at this as a dieter, I’m thinking yey, for diet/healthy food that doesn’t have to be icky. As a person working from home, it’s a load off not to have to think of what to eat for breakfast, lunch, dinner. *hihi
Yes, that’s just what’s provided for in the brown bag that Gourmet Portions delivers to its clients; breakfast, lunch and dinner … as well as snacks. (That was a surprise to see; and well picked fruits they were, I might add. They actually got me eating papaya and dragon fruit. Not mushy at all.)
On the first day, there’s a two page pamphlet that comes with the bag detailing how one can ease into this five day diet program. One part of the pamphlet noted, for first timers, the servings might seem like a big portion. I felt it was the opposite, so much so, I had a mind to eat everything in one sitting. =D
Doing photo documentation of the different containers, the aroma of the dishes filled the air that my sleepy dogs suddenly perked up and did inspections with their rubbery noses. (First delivery I got was at 10 p.m. on account of the blustery weather. Thanks a lot, Egay; good riddance to you.) I can’t imagine the amount of discipline that would go into not touching these when it’s not yet time. Kudos to all who have strong self control! I tip my hat to you! ^^,
Inasmuch as I only had two days to taste test a couple selections from the gourmet delivery program, I was amazed at how well the dishes I tried were prepared. I thoroughly enjoyed the “faint oil sauce” and tasty ground beef bits for the penne pasta lunch. (Surprising because I like my pasta swimming in sauce. *hee)
I loved the grilled dory in oyster sauce dinner and the angel hair pasta with tuyo for breakfast the next day. Whoa, and that full bodied, wine scented sauce for the roasted beef sirloin Tuesday din-din. Arg, how can I resist not wanting to eat more? (That’s all that’s delivered, so there. *maniacal laugh – from the people who want you to succeed in dieting.) For those without self control, this online food store does well in putting a rein on you … uhm, us.
It occurred to me to weigh myself before the deliveries started but thought the better of it. *tee hee I’ll do that when I order the full package and when I resolve I’m going to stick to the regimen.
Carefully prepared meals, three times a day; fruitilicious snacks, two times a day (for five days – Monday to Friday) ; all delivered to your doorstep the night before; all yummy, all healthy, only from Gourmet Portions.

***Thank you so much, Sir Pablo for the two day sample of your diet gourmet meals (that ensured I was well fed even on forced house arrest due to bad weather). So blown away that we have this dieting service “luxury” in the City of Pines now; thank you! More power to Gourmet Portions! (“,)

Its (prosaic =b) contents are meant to help with the question “san tayo?”/where do we go? in relation to eating out in Baguio, to ENCOURAGE EXPLORING (eatsploring) and TRYING NEW THINGS offered in the City of Pines.
By all means, eat where you want to eat and eat what you want to eat. May you have a great experience with all the places you visit and may all the restaurants you go to deserve a ton of treasure chests! (“,)
