ilumi- "Delicious Foods For Pleasure And Well Being" @ilumiworld

I was contacted by the lovely people from Ilumi to sample some of their meals and let the world know what I think of them.

So who are Ilumi? I had never heard of them either but when I was told their food was not only quick and easy to prepare but also offering a much healthier alternative to ready made meals that are out there on the market I figured I would give it a taste. That and I am a sucker for a good name.

Ilumi have a team of nutritionists and chefs who have been cooking up a nut-glutten- and milk free storm for almost 10 years and  now they want to share this food with you all. Check out this video from the team to hear a little more.

I was gifted* samples from the new Chinese range. This range was created with the help of celebrity chef Tom Kime who is well known for his love of authentic Asian flavour.

So lets get down to what you all want to know about. The food right? First meal I tried was the Pork in sweet five spice and chilli sauce.

The packaging is simple and easy like the microwaveable rice packets you can get. Simple and easy to use is just what you need in the kitchen.

The packet does suggest that to have as a full meal you should add rice. The consistency is slightly runny as it can be enjoyed as a soup or casserole also so I added some mixed vegetables (healthy I know ;) ) and rice. I have to admit I wasn't expecting much of a meal that I could prepare so quickly. Usually these type of ready meals lack a lot in flavour. Ilumi nailed it tho there was lots of flavour and a really filling portion size. The meat in the Pork in Sweet five spice and chilli sauce was really nice and there was a decent amount. I would definitely think of getting this one again and maybe taking it for lunch at work or for a super quick meal after a busy day in the studio.

The second was Northern Chinese Style chicken and mushroom. I had high hopes after the other dish had been so yummy but have to admit I found this one to be not as exciting. It does however have tons more flavour and taste than other quick meals and with it being allergen free is still a big winner.

They can be delivered right to your door and are reasonably priced. I can honesty say I will be putting in an order.

 Have you tried them before? Isn't it great a company is giving great taste back to allergy sufferers?

*I was unpaid for this post but gifted the meals. All opinions are honest and my own.
