Sadly, 2 of my favourite meal delivery services (Feed Me and Go Paleo) have shut their services (don’t worry, RealFood Connection is still around). Looking for alternatives, I found Fit and Fresh, based in Newcastle. As it name implies, their focus is fuelling people for fitness and weight loss purposes. They offer both meal plans and individual meals.
The meal plans are awesome for people who are after a full week’s supply of food and don’t have the time, need or desire to decide what they want to eat at each meal. You can choose between 5 or 7 days, and also if you want breakfast + lunch + dinner or only lunch + dinner. You can also decide the size of your meals, (small, regular or large, which applies to the individually purchased meals, too).
We’ve signed up for the 5 day regular-sized lunch + dinner paleo meal plan to help me out until life gets a bit less hectic. Dishes vary week to week and include soups, meat + salad, meat + vegetables and a few vegetarian dishes. Protein sources are varied, we’ve had beef, pork, lamb, chicken, fish and prawns so far. Generally lunches are smaller but in general I would rank the meal size as decent to generous (remember we’re buying the regular size option).
Dishes that are not meant to have the meat mixed in with the salad/vegetables come with the meat in a vacuum-sealed bag which is great from a food safety, freshness and culinary point of view, but can get messy on the go.
Finally, I find the containers a bit too bulky and would love to see these meals packed in a non-plastic microwave-safe leak-proof alternative but I think it has not invented at the moment.
