A review of Pinnacle eAt food delivery service
Healthy eating isn’t just a fad—it’s a lifestyle change which starts from self-motivation, and builds up from encouragement in results. So when we came across Pinnacle eAt, a healthy meal delivery service, we put our self discipline to the test. Cha Siu Papers Times’ Faye Bradley tried Pinnacle eAt for one week’s worth of meals.
About Pinnacle eAt
Pinnacle eAt believes in flavours, varieties and nutrients in supporting a journey towards healthy diet and lifestyle. The meal delivery service offers four macro and calorie-calculated meal options each day—which includes meat, seafood, and two vegetarian meals, using a balanced mix of Asian and Western cuisine to cater for every palette. The service is flexible too, with options to accommodate for any allergy or dietary restrictions and if desired, low-carb and no-carb meals.
Pinnacle eAt provides door-to-door service from Monday to Friday and delivery is made between 9:30am and 12:30pm.
How it Works
Pinnacle eAt sends a link each week and the normal cut off time is Wednesday midnight the week before. We picked our personal goals on the initial form which gave options for building muscle, body conditioning or losing weight. My goal was to lose weight and my partner chose the same option. When you receive the menu link, you can choose up to four meals, and each day has options for meat, seafood, and two vegetarian dishes. Each week the menu changes so the following photos are for reference.
Here are some of our favourites during the week…

Although we had chosen weight loss as the personal goal, the meals were not bland at all and were completely energy sufficient. This is the first time that I have properly tried a meal plan so it was encouraging to see that it is achievable and self-sustaining to live on a healthy meal plan. There are obvious benefits with having a meal plan—time constraints and letting the experts do it for you, but it is of course great to learn what works best for you as an individual on a fitness journey.
