As much as I love cooking, my schedule doesn’t always allow for it. I want to eat healthy but lets face it… there aren’t many take out LCHF options for me. The first thing they say when you want to be healthy is to be prepared.
I received a big box full of frozen ready made FitChef meals, smoothies and snacks. I can’t even begin to explain how I excited I was as I went through the box!
I popped them all into my freezer, with the comforting knowledge that when my schedule is crazy, I could just pull them out and defrost them and I’d have a healthy meal for lunch or dinner (or both.)
In fact these have been super handy for my lunch. I pop one into a packet, pop it into my bag and I have lunch ready for when I arrive at Smile 90.4 FM. They’r
FitChef is the leading healthy-convenient food company. They’re famous for their 21 Day Challenge Kits and Own Selection monthly lifestyle food, smoothies, drinks and snacks. They deliver or you can collect at your own convenience.
You can also choose what your goals are so that the meals are tailor made for your requirements. Do you want to lose weight? Convenient health? Sport performance? Maintenance diet? Vegetarian? There is something for everyone.
For pure authenticity, I’ll always share what my initial thoughts were. I did wonder if the frozen meals were going to taste good and home cooked, or if they’d taste like a heated up meal.
I also wondered how healthy they really were… I often see things “signed off” as low carb, carb clever or Banting, only to discover that the ingredients used are definitely not Banting, low carb or sugar free or that the carb count is way too high.
I am so thrilled to say that the meals are delicious and the ingredients are perfect!
The smoothies are absolutely delicious and I drink them as they start defrosting, because I love the slushy ice! It reminds me of the Orange Take 5’s I used to buy at the school tuck shop. Do you remember those? I’m not even sure if I have the name right, but they were the little frozen packets and you got orange and guava flavour.
I’m really impressed and am definitely going to be making use of them on a regular basis. It’s so great to have meals ready and waiting in the freezer for those crazy busy times or even when Sox is working and I don’t feel like cooking for 1.
