Tweakd are on a mission to inspire positive personal change through a fusion of great taste and science,. Set up by two of the UK’s leading sports nutrition experts, e lite sport chef Omar Meziane and nutritionist Michael Naylor, Tweakd offers a unique approach to home-delivered meals.
How it works
Tweakd produce tailored meals that are focused on goals, helping to boost peak performance on the field or in the office. They deliver food that is nutritionally designed for the world’s best athletes and tweaked to suit the needs of the customer, then delivered straight to their door.
Individuals are able to input their performance goals and preferences before the Tweakd platform gets to work. You can choose goals such as immune, recovery, muscle and endurance. It sources the appropriate nutrition required and offers a selection of meals to choose from. Customers can then pick meals from the list, which are delivered weekly. Once the meals have been cooked, Tweakd utilises its own science and freezes the meals into user-friendly and easily stored meals that have had the great taste locked in through the process.
Recently, I was asked if I would like to try a Tweakd meal and I was interested to give them a go. We opted to try the Massaman Duck and the Sri Lankan Curry between us, so we could taste two different meals at the same time. the Sri Lankan Curry is pictured at the top of this post.
How it arrives
The meals and the drinks arrived with ice packs and were well insulated. They came in a wool insulation and the ice packs were just water. I like this because it’s more environmentally friendly and sustainable, plus it works well. The ice packs were still frozen solid when the meals arrived.
As you can see you get a meal which you can either cook in the oven or microwave. It’s very easy to do. The drinks are provided to support the nutrition in the meals and help you reach your goals.
So what did the meals taste like?
The food looks and tastes great. It tastes fresh and the ingredients are clearly quality ones. I particularly liked the use of spices as they were flavoursome, but not over powering. These meals are far superior to the average ready meal. The drinks were good too. We tried Ginger Spice and Beet Blast. Ginger Spice packed quite a punch: you certainly knew there was ginger in there. Once I’d got over the initial shock I really enjoyed this drink. The Beet Blast was sweeter and not so strongly flavoured. I think though over all I preferred the Ginger Spice one of the two. Drinking them you can taste that they are full of good things.
Tweakd exists to support lifestyle and help to boost performance. As a result, the experts believe that there would be no real benefit to customers signing up to just one day a week, for example. It’s for this reason that Tweakd has set a minimum subscription of three days a week so that customers can fully benefit from the product. I could see myself using these to help with certain situations. They would be great to help boost your immune system if you were self isolating say, and I’m considering using them for after an operation I’ve got planned to aid my recovery. It would certainly mean that you were eating good food without the need to do a lot of research.
Prices start from £9.99 per meal for three days a week, reducing to £9.49 at the four day mark and for five days costs £8.99.
