Since I’ve started back to school, the only completely free days I have now are Sundays. On Sunday’s, I have to do my homework, clean my apartment, do the dishes, keep up my car maintenance, do my laundry, take my dog in to be groomed, see my family, grocery shop, prep my meals for the week, etc. Obviously I don’t do ALL of that EVERY Sunday, but I do most of it regularly.
On top of all of that, my work days somehow keep getting longer. It’s becoming regular to get home from work at 8 or after.
I knew I needed to come up with something to make things a bit easier for me for at least the next few weeks. So, I decided to buy my dinners and snacks from My Fit Foods instead of having to cook this week.
Another reason I decided to go to My Fit Foods (MFF) is because when I cook at home, I have to eat the same thing multiple times for dinner. I’m REALLY getting burnt out on the same foods by the end of the week, which is making it harder to stay on the healthy eating track. With the MFF meals, I can have variety and I’m very much so looking forward to that!
If you’re not familiar with My Fit Foods, let me tell you a little bit about it!
MFF is a store that sells fresh, healthy, prepared foods. They’re sold in little microwavable containers. They have breakfast options, lunch options, snack options, dinner options, and even dessert options. Their foods come in 3 different sizes (small, medium, and large) so that you can choose which one is right for you.
Our MFF opened in October of last year. I remember I tried it out shortly after they opened (2 months before my Drs. visit that changed everything) and I didn’t have the best of luck with it. I thought the food was boring and I found it hard to eat.
I decided to give it another chance because the person I am now is way different than the person I was then. I enjoy healthy food now, but back then I was still eating pizza and burgers everyday, so of course I wasn’t a fan of their foods.
I’m really glad I decided to go to MFF this week. It’s made my life just a little bit easier. No cooking and no dishes this week!
I went to MFF on Monday and got 5 dinners, 1 breakfast, 4 snacks, 1 dessert, and 1 individual bag of healthy egg white chips for the week, all for $78.
I tried my first meal Monday night. I had the Fit Nation Chicken Nuggets. It’s chicken breast meat cut into nugget size and breaded with almond four, flax meal, and spices. It’s served with broccoli, cinnamon carrots, and their version of “honey mustard” which is plain yellow mustard sweetened with agave nectar. This meal in the medium size has 390 calories.
I would give this meal an 8/10. The “honey mustard” was delicious. I’m really glad it came with the meal because it made the chicken taste better than it did without the sauce. The carrots were surprisingly delicious! And the broccoli was good. Nothing special, just broccoli. I’ll buy this meal again for sure.
The next meal I tried was the H-Town Breakfast. I knew I’d love this one because it has chicken apple breakfast sausage links in it. It also has rosemary red potatoes and scrambled eggs. This meal in the small size has 290 calories.
The great thing about their breakfasts is that they use a 5:1 ratio for the eggs, meaning they use 5 egg whites for every 1 yolk. I did have to salt my eggs and potatoes a little, but I’ll try not to next time. I’d give this meal a 9/10.
The next thing I tried was one of their snacks, the Healthy Hummus Bowl. It comes with a small cup of hummus, chopped grilled chicken breast, celery, carrots, and grape tomatoes. This meal only comes in one size and has 150 calories.
There was more of everything but I was hungry and almost forgot to take a picture!
The hummus was fantastic! I really enjoyed it most with the carrots. The tomatoes and chicken made it a good snack. I definitely could have done without the celery though. I give this snack a 6.5/10.
My next meal was Cynthia’s BBQ Chicken. It had chopped BBQ chicken breast, cheddar mashed red potatoes, and green beans. This meal in a size medium has 390 calories.
This meal was great, BUT, I did add my own BBQ sauce. There simply wasn’t enough on the chicken, so I added about 2 tablespoons of my own favorite BBQ sauce which only added 30 calories. The potatoes and green beans were good, but I did again add just a little bit of salt. What can I say, I love my salt.
I enjoyed this meal because it was simple and it was something I could eat more than once in a week. I give it a 7.5/10.
I’ve got more meals and snacks to review this week, so I’ll blog again soon with the results!
So, if you’re looking for convenience while still eating healthy, I suggest you try out My Fit Foods! Here’s a link to their website. Go check them out! Seriously!
