I’m an all or nothing kind of girl. Especially when it comes to eating. Some days you will find me stuffing my face with a cheeseburger and fries, other days you’ll find me repenting at my desk with a bowl of microwaved steamed veggies and a can of tuna.
I first heard about Eat Fit Food from one of my colleagues during one of those stuff-my-face lunches and thought, “I need to get in on that.” And get in on that I did.
Eat Fit Food is a healthy meal delivery service thought up by health food expert, Bianca Monley. Now, before you go and think that this is some Lean Cuisine kind of deal, it’s not. Not in the slightest. The key difference of Eat Fit Food is that it’s not only healthy, but it’s made by real life chefs and—wait for it—it’s actually delicious too. Many of the ingredients are grown locally using ethically sourced meats and seafood, plus there are no additives and refined sugars.
I figured my body was in need of a break from junk food and alcohol so decided to give the ten meal pack a go. These packs provide lunch and dinner for five days, so all you need to prepare is your breakfast in the morning. Easy much?
When you sign up to Eat Fit Food, you’re able to select what meals you would like for the week. These options include meat, seafood and vegetarian options, which is great if the only meat you cook at home is chicken (ummm, me). TBH, it’s kind of exciting selecting your meals for the week and just sending the form off and waiting for the delivery man to bring the deliciousness.
On Monday morning, I rushed downstairs to pick up my first pack. It contained my lunch and dinner for Monday and Tuesday. It took a little while to work out which container was which (they aren’t labeled) but once I worked out which was my Marrakesh salmon with cauliflower cous cous, I was set.
I was eyeing the clock all morning to whip out my fancy lunch in front of my co-workers. As soon as midday hit, I was first to the microwave to heat up my salmon. Once heated, I plated it up and walked proudly through the office with my lunch to the revered whispers of “what have you got there? It smells so good!” and “that’s not your usual steamed veggies!”. No, kind sirs, it was not. And it was wonderful.
As I was eating my glorious lunch I wondered whether this was good for me because it tasted too delicious to be healthy. Surely nothing tasty is good for you, right? But apparently it is. Slow hand claps to you, Eat Fit Food.
Dinner was agedashi tofu with buckwheat, coleslaw and wasabi mayo. It was ready to go in two minutes which left me more than enough time to watch more episodes of Nashville than I care to divulge AND do my washing. There wasn’t even much to wash up. Could life always be this easy?
The rest of the week continued like this. Smug lunching, jealous colleagues and so much free time after dinner. I could get used to this.
Eat Fit Food may not be an every day thing for many of us (it’s not cheap, but if you think about it—it’s about the cost of a meal at a restaurant or takeaway shop) but if you know you’re about to have a hectic week and don’t want to succumb to not-so-good-for-you take out, or if you just need a break from shopping, prepping and cooking for a week, then Eat Fit Food should definitely be on your radar. I know I’ll be placing another order.
