 With the busy lifestyle millennials have, people tend not to be healthy with their food choices. The fact that fast food is quick and delicious makes it an easy choice for the thousands of office workers everyday. Enter GOURMADE by CHEF ROB LAU.
Gourmade by Chef Rob Lau offers weekly meal plans to meet the needs of the office workers. Quick and fast, they deliver a whole day meal right to your door step.
 Just this week, I was able to experience the SKINNY DOWN MENU. Before you even start they ask you to answer a simple survey like your allergies and also what type of meal plan you would want.

For Day 1, I was able to try out the Shrimp and Egg Sandwich, Tamarind Pork with Brown Rice and Vegetarian Pizza. The meals they serve actually has a couple of snacks packed in them. In this case, a couple of pastry. I was pleasantly surprised with the vegetarian pizza. It was pretty good even if there was no meat present.
 For day 2, Chicken Ceasar Salad, Pesto Pancake and Grilled Bangus were served. If you would notice, the meals are dependent on the amount of calories you are rooting for. They have a range of 1,200 calories to 2,000 calories a day so it might seem a little less than the usual but a little sacrifice would work.
 For day 3, I was pleasantly surprised with the Korean Chicken Strips with Shitake Mushroom. I enjoyed the sweet and savory taste. Needless to say, I wasn't too happy with the Oatmeal ginger squash just because I don't really eat oatmeal.
 For day 4, the tortang talong sandwich was pretty good. Same goes with the Chicken hainanese wrap. The haiananese flavors were present in the wrap and it was pretty good.
Day 5 and I survived. The Yanchao Fried Rice was pretty good with all the chinese sausage and different meat in it. The Fish Fillet was also creamy and tender. I liked it.
For next week, this is the menu that GOURMADE by CHEF ROB LAU is offering. As you can see, the menu are pretty much the same except for a few entrees per day that they change for the skinny down and the Pescatarian.
There are a couple of incidents though that must be taken into account. Since this is a food delivery service, distance is pretty much a factor. In my own experience, I received a couple or so dishes that seemed quite off so I didn't try it out. I believe that it is important to properly handle the food because of the high risk of spoilage. In terms of taste, I was pleasantly surprised with some of the dishes as they turned out pretty well. You would definitely loose a pound or so if you stick to the program but the thing is, it might be a little difficult for big appetite people like me. This is perfect for the people on the go and even those that have dietary restrictions. The price is almost equal to a night out so it will definitely save your budget.
