Arguably, the number one keto meal provider is A Life Plus, with a huge ketogenic meal offering. While it’s certainly known for its ketogenic meals, it’s also highly customisable and unique in its offering, with alkaline meals, NDIS meals, plant-based and organic meals on offer too.
Not to mention A Life Plus is very customisable to your calorie goals as well as your food preferences – whether you’re gluten free, dairy free or just don’t like bacon for example, you can mention this in your order and A Life Plus will alter the meals to suit you.
A Life Plus has several meal options, including Keto, NDIS, Plant-Based, Alkaline, and Organic, with plans for 3, 5, or 7 days. Customers have the option to choose their own dishes, but it can be difficult to find specific meals without any filtering or dietary information provided on the website. The information is only available in a separate PDF menu, which requires cross-referencing.
However, while it’s not totally obvious on the website when ordering, there is a note from A Life Plus to saying:
“We create every meal plan differently because each of us has unique requirements. We are able to personalise the dishes to your goals and preferences by hand-cooking every one of your dishes to order. This includes personalising for your dietary preferences (e.g. Vegetarian, no gluten), removing ingredients you don’t like (e.g no fish, dairy) all the way to your individual calorie level requirements. (e.g. I don’t want to exceed 1200 calories).”
This information can be filled out when A Life Plus sends you a detailed questionnaire to fill out once you’ve placed your order.
Ingredients & Preparation
A Life Plus offers meals made from the freshest ingredients sourced daily from local Aussie farmers. The dishes are hand-cooked by Chefs in their local kitchen to the customer’s order. The meals are then sealed and delivered within 24 hours for maximum taste and freshness.
A Life Plus uses only fresh, not frozen ingredients and all dishes have no added sugar, artificial ingredients, colouring and chemical preservatives. Special dietary requirements are catered for and customers have the flexibility to add or remove ingredients. The dishes can also be personalised to the customer’s taste by adjusting the salt level, ingredient mix, the amount of sauce and removal of allergens.
You can filter menu items by categories such as Organic, Vegan, Easy to Swallow, and chicken dishes.
Delivery & Packaging
Shipping with A Life Plus is convenient and affordable. Orders over $50 ship for free to any of their delivery zones, and even orders under $50 have a flat rate fee of $10. Their delivery areas include Sydney Metro, Regional and Blue Mountains, Melbourne Metro, Regional and Geelong, Canberra, Brisbane Metro and Byron Bay, and Adelaide Metro and Regional Towns. While they currently do not deliver to Darwin and Perth, this is common due to the challenges of shipping food across long distances in Australia. It’s not clear how recyclable the A Life Plus box/ice packs or containers are.
A Life Plus customer service is excellent. From Live Chat on the website to after-support, you are well looked after with A Life Plus. On your order, you can note your dietary requirements, but once you’ve submitted your order, you’ll receive an email from A Life Plus asking more detailed questions about your diet and goals.
