Have you been struggling to commit to a healthy way of living? Swearing off of junk food and then finding yourself munching on fries and burgers for lack of a better option? Maybe you just don’t have the time to meal prep, and that’s OK! Because the AKLY app will do it for you! 

Whether you’re looking for just one meal a day, or a subscription, the choices are endless! With the AKLY app, you can subscribe for a monthly plan, or even just order a healthy meal when you feel like it and have it at your doorstep in no time! 

With people around Qatar becoming more and more health conscious and trying to eat clean, AKLY is a great way to get your feet off the ground! Whether you’re looking to lose weight, or perhaps even maintain your current weight, the app has options for you. You can also use the app to calculate your Body Mass Index (BMI), based on which it can plan your meals for you. So you don’t need to visit a dietician or a nutritionist when you have an app that serves as all of those! It also provides you with the nutritional information for each meal, like the number of calories it contains, amount of protein and fat, etc. What’s also great is that if you have sudden travel plans that come up during the month, you can freeze up to 12 days of your subscription! 

AKLY also promises that your healthy food won’t be bland and boring, but colorful, unique and of course, delicious! We tried out some of their dishes to see what kind of food the kitchen serves and just how healthy it is! 

The first dish we tried out was the kale, orange and quinoa salad! The stark contrast of the bright orange against the lush green kale was further complemented by the pomegranate seeds and light avocado slices. As you take a big bite of the salad, the flavors all fuse together and create a party in your mouth, sweet, sour and savory.  

The second dish was the chicken satay sandwich. Described as peanut flavored chicken in a brown baguette with Chinese cabbage, this sandwich had a variety of flavors packed into the baguette. It’ll satisfy your sub cravings, minus the calories! 

Next up, was a bit of a meatier main course. The beef medallion with mushroom sauce. This one will have your mouth watering for sure! The beef tenderloin was cooked just right and was flavorful and juicy at the same time. The mushroom sauce, made with low fat cream adds just the right amount of moisture and creaminess without letting you feel too guilty! 

Last, but certainly not the least was the rice pudding with orange blossom. This dairy-free delicious dessert is made with almond milk, rice, orange blossom water and stevia. So don’t worry about polluting your body with sweetness and milk, because there isn’t any in it! The sweetness of the stevia mixed with the soft texture of the almond milk and rice will make you feel warm inside, and the subtle flavor of the orange blossom water peeking through will balance the sweetness perfectly. 

Overall, the food fulfills your requirement of wanting clean, healthy food and also stays true to its word when it promises quality and taste! The dishes that stood out the most for me were undoubtedly the beef medallion and the rice pudding with orange blossom. If that’s what healthy food tastes like, we’re ready! 

The convenience of the app is definitely a huge plus. Whether it’s a busy day at work or just you realizing you’ve been eating too much junk, AKLY can sure be a savior. And guess what? If you have a subscription and don’t like the next meal they’ve picked for you, you can change it within 48 hours before delivery! They also deliver no matter where you are, so tell me… What are you waiting for? Download it now
