- Calories counters, this one's for you
In this hustling bustling world where time is not enough and you can hardly squeeze in 40 minutes to hit the gym, cutting down on calories is often the alternative to feeling lighter and brighter. But what to do when you tire of quinoa bowls and carrot sticks?
This summer, the nation's most loved food delivery service, Deliveroo, has found a scrumptious solution to celery-chewing, macadamia-munching woes by teaming up with HEINEKEN®, to launch an all-new, limited edition Under 550 Series. The series pairs mouth-watering mains from made-to-order Mexican restaurant Guzman Y Gomez and Scandinavian Superfoods & Juice Cafe Haakon with a beautiful brew from HEINEKEN®, all falling under - you guessed it - 550 calories per set.
Starring in these scrumptious sets for wellness warriors is the brand new Heineken® 0.0, a refreshing non-alcoholic lager brewed with a unique recipe for a distinct balanced taste. It's all natural, is low in sugar and holds only 69 calories in a 330ml bottle. The best part? it's completely zero alcohol, so you can now have an ice cold beer to go with your meal all day, everyday, without feeling guilty! Because who says cutting back on calories needs to be all flaxseeds and no flavour?
Here's the low-down on what to expect:
- Guzman Y Gomez's Mini Burrito (choice of spicy chicken, mild beef steak or mild pulled pork) Calorie Count with Heineken 0.0: 547
This humble burrito packs a punch and delivers real Mexican flavours this side of the Pacific. Sink your teeth into a fresh, soft tortilla plied with layers of succulent Aussie grilled meat, marinated to perfection with a signature Chipotle dip for that smokey barbeque flavour. Stuffed with sauteed seasonal greens, Australia Jack cheese, black beans and house-blend salsa, this meal is a deliciously sinful treat that you can enjoy without the guilt.
- Haakon's Salmon Shirataki Noodles Calorie Count with Heineken 0.0: 439
This fan-favourite is the ultimate superfood meal with a classic baked salmon fillet served on a bed of zero-calories, gluten and grain free shirataki noodles. Enhancing the dish's flavours are teriyaki mushrooms, broccoli, carrots, baked peppers and barley, top with furikake and garlic crumbs for that extra crunch. If this doesn't make your calorie calculator happy, we don't know what will.
And there you have it - divine duos that preach mindful indulging, so you can feast without feeling quite like a beast.
The Under 550 Series is exclusively available via Deliveroo from 10 to 14 June, with 10 sets of each combo available at each outlet per day.
