Need quick, healthy meals? Soli might just be the ideal meal delivery service for you! This Soli review will explain exactly what Soli offers as well as a review of 9 of the menu items available at the time of this review.
What is Soli?
Soli is a meal delivery service. They deliver healthy, fresh, already prepared meals from the Midwest to most parts of the East Coast. The meals are never frozen and there is no need to do any work. Just heat and eat.
Soli meals can be ordered online and shipped to your doorstep. The meals are shipped in an insulated package with reusable ice blocks. If you live in the Memphis, TN area, you can drop by one of two Soli locations, order ahead online and pick up in-store, or have your meals delivered on Sundays.
Who is Soli For?
Soli meals are ideal for a variety of situations. Maybe you don’t like to cook? Or maybe you just don’t have time. If you’re on a restrictive diet, these meals can work for you too as they offer meals in the following categories:
- gluten free
- carb consious
- sodium conscious
- dairy free
- Whole 30
How Much Does Soli Cost?
Soli is very reasonable priced. Snacks, Sweets, Salads, and Side Proteins range in price from $2.00-$6.00 each. Breakfasts and entrees range from $5.00 to $11.50 per meal. For some breakfast and entree options, there are two sizes to choose from.
There are also Meal Pack Plans that offer packs of 9-20 entrees. These range in price from $65.00 to $135.00.
Shipping is quoted at checkout. The Soli website does state that shipping will be $20 minimum and they recommend ordering at least 8-10 meals.
I tried 9 items from the Soli menu that was available at the time of this review. I chose 3 breakfast entrees, 3 lunch or dinner entrees, and 3 snack options. I chose all medium-size meals.
My shipment arrived on time and all of my meals were very cold upon arrival. Meals arrive in individual containers with the nutritional information on the labels. They can be microwaved in the container or removed and heated in an oven, if you choose. The containers are reusable!
Blueberry Stack Pack
This breakfast entree was kind of like a blueberry pancake casserole. This meal falls under the categories of being carb conscious and sodium conscious.
There are 230 calories, 7 grams of fat, 20 grams of carbs, and 24 grams of protein. It only took 1 minute to warm in the microwave.
The meal alone was really good. Personally, if I’m eating pancakes (or something like pancakes), I want it to a bit sweeter. I added a small amount of maple syrup to it to suit my own tastes.
Southern Grits Casserole
I went on a bit of a grits binge while in Florida last month, and the craving is still going strong. This casserole helped satisfy that craving. In addition to grits, it’s loaded with eggs, turkey sausage, and veggies and was very tasty!
This meal is gluten free and has 360 calories. There are also 15 grams of fat, 29 grams of carbohydrates, and 28 grams of protein.
These little bites were my favorite breakfast of the three that I tried. They are basically eggs, turkey, cheese, and veggie bites. The potatoes that came with the bites were delicious!
These are also a gluten free meal. There are 360 calories, 16 grams of fat, 33 grams of carbs, and 23 grams of protein.
Main Dish Entrees
This entree is mac and cheese topped with chicken. The chicken was really good, but the mac and cheese fell a little short on flavor for me. I don’t usually add salt to my food, but I had to with this dish. I think it really just needed a bit more cheese.
This meal is actually gluten free. There are 530 calories, 16 grams of fat, 50 grams of carbs, and 44 grams of protein. It was plenty filling!
Black Bean Enchiladas
This dish was also more like a casserole, but really good! As usual, I could have used a tad more sauce or tomato, but I still ate the whole dish! It was also very filling. It’s not noted as vegetarian, but there is no meat in the ingredients unless on of the sauces contains meat.
This meal falls under the gluten free, sodium conscious, and spicy categories. I don’t really feel like it was spicy, though.
There are 420 calories, 14 grams of fat, 56 grams of carbs, and 20 grams of protein in this meal.
Sriracha Chicken Chili
I think that this chili has the most flavor of all the dishes that I tried. I didn’t feel it was lacking in any way whatsoever. It was maybe mildly spicy, but there wasn’t too much heat at all. I really enjoyed the creamy sauce.
There are 360 calories, 14 grams of fat, 21 grams of carbs, and 36 grams of protein. It falls in the gluten free, carb conscious, and spicy categories.
Buffalo Chicken Wrap
This wrap was really tasty! Personally, I would have added a bit more Buffalo sauce, if I had it. I would also recommend eating this one first. I left this to the last day and it was a little soggy. For me, this was more like a light lunch than a snack.
This snack has 230 calories, 5 grams of fat, 27 grams of carbs, and 16 grams of protein. It falls under the carb conscious and spicy categories. Again there was little, if any, spice.
Obviously, I like Buffalo everything! These bites are cauliflower with a Buffalo breadcrumb coating. The bites themselves were absolutely delicious. The veggies that came with it were another story. The carrots and celery were both soggy and limp. I’m not sure if this would be remedied with different packaging or if the vegetables just started going bad before the best by date on the package.
This snack has 160 calories, 3.5 grams of fat, 27 grams of carbohydrates, and 6 grams of protein. These bites fall into the carb conscious, gluten free, and spicy categories.
Almond Butter Cup
I had to try at least one of the sweets on the Soli snack menu! This Almond Butter Cup was so good that I wished I ordered more!
There are 160 calories, 12 grams of fat, 11 grams of carbohydrates, and 4 grams of protein. This little treat falls into the carb cascious, gluten free, and sodium conscious categories.
Pro’s of Soli
Soli meal delivery has quite a few benefits! The meals:
- are quick
- are convenient
- come in a variety of flavors
- are likely suitable for a lot of different dietary needs
- are very reasonably priced
Con’s of Soli
No meal delivery service is perfect, and Soli definitely has a few issues to work out:
- gluten free meals – ingredients don’t specifically say gluten free. I would be a little hesitant if I was gluten free or had a food allergy. If you fall into this category, I would contact Soli for more information before ordering.
- ingredients are lacking. For example, “chocolate” is listed under the ingredients instead of all the actual ingredients that make up chocolate. The same goes for items like enchilada sauce, tortillas, etc.
- there is no delivery to the western half of the country yet.
- some minor packaging issues that may have contributed to the soggy vegetables that I received.
- I would have preferred a little more salt or more sauce in a few of the meals but this is obviously a personal issue.
