While I've made great strides in revamping my diet to be healthier and more balanced and veggie-centric, I still have a hard time getting motivated to cook meals that include a main dish AND sides AND vegetables all at once. This is especially difficult during busy work weeks, and cooking lunches that meet these requirements is something I can still never do. As a result, some months ago, I gave My Fit Foods, a meal service which allows you to come in-store, view their pre-cooked meals, and pick up whatever suits your tastes and needs, a try. While the foods were generally more appealing to my palate than similar services I've tried in the past, in the end the meals left something to be desired. They weren't seasoned enough, and there weren't that many options that pleased my picky palate. So I forgot about them. Until recently a friend mentioned he was using the service, and I decided to check them out again.
When I visited the website, I noticed positive changes including more options! More options that appealed to my tastes! More gluten-free choices (all meals that are gluten free are clearly marked). I decided to stop in and grab a few more meals to see if I was missing anything new.
I was quite impressed with what I found!
I picked up five meals for lunches:
Y'all. This stuff is good. And while it may look tiny in boxes, when you plate it, it is actually a nice amount of food:
The boxes are all clearly marked, and include heat-up directions. I actually like to cook them on the stove, which makes getting a little semi-homemade easier. For instance, I added buffalo sauce to this entree to add an extra kick. They also tend to need a little salt in my sodium lovin' opinion. But still. Good, and filling. And as you can see by the links, the real deal looks like what they show on the website. The meals all come in small, medium and large varities to suit your nutritional needs.
I also picked up some protien cookies for an after dinner snack!
Right now, MFF has locations in Texas, California, Arizona and Idaho. If you are in these areas, I'd recommend giving them a try.
What about you? Have you had any luck with similar services in your area?
