Emma Skipper gets her skin glowing

The Pure Package For Spring by Emma Skipper

I recently came across a little revolution in spring/summer body prepping. So move aside unrealistic diets and extreme exercise regimes that only last a week, The Pure Package is in town with the perfect weight loss partner.

The Pure Package is London based, home delivered dietary package aimed at weight loss and healthy living. They freshly prepare tailored menus to your door every day, meaning you shouldn’t have any anxiety about what you’re putting in your mouth and how it will affect your figure: they do all that for you!

The principles are simple: they want to promote healthy eating with no gimmicks and they do it incredibly well. Everything from the slick delivery methods (between 12-6am in a cool bag so the food is super fresh from the nearby farmer’s section of New Covent Garden Market) to the delicious filling recipes in recyclable packaging: they make dieting an actual pleasure…something I never thought I’d say in a hurry!

I had the pleasure of sampling this diet package for three days to get a taster of what it is all about and was seriously impressed. Although I didn’t lose weight (realistically I didn’t expect to in three days), I felt amazing by the end of my trial. My skin was glowing, I felt hydrated (they say drink 2 litres of water a day), energised and showed no signs of bloating. Their idea of eating regularly with balanced meals of complex carbs accompanied by protein, veg and fruit really did make me feel as though I was getting all the goodness I was supposed to. Which made a big difference from the nutritional value of my regular Pret Prawn Sandwich!

Personal best? The amazing recipes from a breakfast of Grapefruit with Organic Rye Bread & Rainforest Nut Butter (delicious posh mixed nut butter) to a lunch of Beef & Watercress Salad to an amazing dinner of Organic Salmon & Grilled Canadian Scallops. Oh and if, like me, you don’t have a microwave at work – fear not! You can eat all the recipes cold – but you can easily heat them up if you fancy a hot meal.

Personal worst? The price. This plan is not cheap, but you’re definitely paying for quality so if you’ve got the budget, don’t let this put you off. Plus it would be a fab idea for a few weeks before a wedding or summer holiday. A 10 day plan is £39.95 a day.
