We Tried Out Clean Eating for a Week with Everdine

Many of us have such busy lives now and very little support, meaning that managing to cook and eat clean can fall to the bottom of our priorities list. Running a home, working and children generally ensures that when you finally sit down at 9.30pm, the absolute last thing you want to be thinking about, is how you can a healthy supper. It’s at this point I’ve been known to reach for a dreaded takeaway to be honest.

So, I’m excited to be testing out Everdine. It looks to be everything you could want regarding eating clean and healthy, with none of the faff. Clean eating in itself is a simple concept. Rather than revolving around the idea of ingesting fewer calories or more protein, it’s more about being mindful of the food’s pathway between its origin and your plate. Clean eating is about eating whole foods – minimally processed, refined, and handled, making them as close to their natural form as possible. This is where Everdine are here to help, clean & wholesome gourmet meals, cooked, frozen and courier-delivered. Most meals are ready to eat in around 10 minutes. Eating clean made incredibly simple.

All of their meats and fish are sustainably sourced. They only use the best ingredients from suppliers they know well and who meet their strict quality standards. Their chefs Matt and Viresh trained in Michelin-starred restaurants, and create unique, wholesome and delicious meals for you. Freezing locks in all the natural goodness with no need for artificial preservatives. Sheep wool insulates your food during delivery. Microwaving is one of the most nutrient-preserving heat-up methods as well as quick and easy.

So you too can have delicious clean meals delivered to your home or office. Just order by Tuesday morning to ensure your box gets delivered the same week. You can choose between a classic or a vegetarian plan. Food – natural, clean and delicious, as it should be.

On our menu this week:

This is one of those dishes that prove how deliciously healthy vegetarian food can be. Soba noodles contain antioxidant phytonutrients which protect against a variety of diseases. Miso is full of nutrients and beneficial bacteria and enzymes. A healthy treat when we crave that Japanese takeaway comfort feeling!


Rich tandoori-marinated salmon is matched with lentils braised in onion. By mixing butternut squash puree into the dahl, this dish only needs a fraction of the cream (and calories!) to offer a beautifully creamy, velvet-like texture. This dish is both delicious and wholesome.


Enjoy this healthy play on this bbq favourite; no processed sugars in our bbq sauce, beans added for an extra protein punch and sweet potatoes to boost your vitamin levels.


This sweet and savoury dish is filling yet light, to leave you satisfied but not weighed down. High in protein thanks to the lamb chops, this dish is a rare and beautiful combination of meat, vegetables and grains. The vegetables are cooked slowly with a blend of all the right spices to give you your daily dose of antioxidants.


Lightly marinated duck breast is paired with delicious greens, blanched to bring out flavours while keeping nutrients intact. Our cherry sauce is smooth and flavourful – yet, by adding a few cherries a bit later it retains a nice bite. Rich in protein, iron, vitamin B6 and niacin, this delicious meal is full of goodies to keep you going all day.


This dish perfectly captures the essence of the Caribbean with a balanced mix of jerk spices, allspice and coconut beans. The pineapple chicken is flame grilled and served with coconut and quinoa rice to give an ever-so-slight sweetness to your meal.


Dive into a world of aromas. Bulgur wheat is mixed with numerous little treats, char-grilled pineapple chunks add acidic sweetness. King prawns crown this dish as an extra lean protein source. We slightly toast all the spices to bring out their aromas fully. Your taste buds will enjoy the richness and diversity of flavours of this dish.
