My Fit Foods Review: Part 2

I’ve had the chance to try out some more products from MFF, so I’m going to review those products right now.

First though, I must say, I’ve been eating terribly the past almost 2 weeks. I sorta lost my desire to care. I’ve been eating out, eating unhealthy foods, and not exercising at all. I’ve even been eating a lot of sweets. I’m ready to get back into the swing of healthy eating though.

I’ve decided to keep buying the pre-made foods from MFF to make things easier and to hopefully get me back on track.

Here are my reviews!

Fit To Go-320 calories

This snack is pretty simple: apple slices, a hard boiled egg, grapes, and peanut butter. Obviously I could have put this snack together super easily by myself, but it’s just too convenient buying it pre-made from MFF. This snack was good, although I don’t really like apples, so I only ate a little bit of the apples. I give it a 5/10.

Picnic Time-310 calories

I had to use the image off of MFF’s website because I kept forgetting to take pictures. Sorry! This snack was also simple but delicious and definitely one of my favorite snacks. It includes almonds, dried cranberries, nut thin crackers, cubed cheese, apples, and grapes. I give it a 7/10.

Egg-o-licious-260 calories

MFF’s egg salad is soo tasty! I really do love it better than my egg salad. And the nut thin crackers they serve with it are perfect! I give this one a 9/10.

Brian’s Fit Chicken Enchiladas-470 calories (Medium)

20130917-004410.jpg

First off, these enchiladas were very filling! It was 470 calories for 3 enchiladas served with black beans and chopped tomatoes. The enchiladas were a little spicy and I also added some medium salsa because I love salsa. The black beans were seasoned nicely and overall this dinner was a winner. This dinner gets a 9/10.

Blazin’ Cajun Shrimp-300 calories (Medium)

20130917-004622.jpg

This meal is sorta like a spicy Cajun shrimp dish served over dirty rice. This meal is my least favorite so far. It lacked depth. It tasted spicy but without the flavor. I most likely won’t buy this meal again, unless if I decide to give them a second chance. Everybody has off days, right? I give this one a 4/10.

Zesty Shrimp and Scallops-310 calories (Medium)

20130917-004739.jpg

It looks soupy in the picture, and it definitely was indeed soupy. Nonetheless, it was still really yummy! It’s a spicy Alfredo-like sauce served over zucchini “noodles” with shrimp and scallops. I served this meal with some toasted wheat bread with garlic salt for a perfect Italian meal. Oh, since it was a little watery (zucchini does that!) I added some shredded mozzarella cheese to help thicken it. This meal is a total win and scores a 9/10.

Buffalo Chicken Wrap-410 calories

20130917-004900.jpg

This tasty wrap is filled with chopped chicken, cucumbers, lettuce, cherry tomatoes, and a creamy buffalo-like sauce. I really enjoyed this wrap, but I didn’t think it tasted like buffalo. It definitely wasn’t spicy like I was hoping, but it tasted great! It was served with carrots and a blue cheese dipping sauce that was fantastic. I can’t wait to eat this wrap again soon. I give this one an 8/10.

Pesto Chicken-340 calories (Medium)

20130917-005037.jpg

This meal was downright delicious. It was sliced chicken breast served over zucchini “noodles” with a very tasty pesto sauce on the side served with cherry tomatoes. This dish, unlike the shrimp over zucchini noodles, wasn’t watery at all. It was perfect. I was surprised how good healthy pesto can taste. I also served this meal with some garlic bread for the perfect quick dinner. I rate this meal a 9/10.

That’s all of my reviews for now. I’ve got a couple more snacks and 4 more dinners to try out this week, so I’ll have a part 3 review post coming this weekend.

Have a great week everybody!

My Fit Foods: Product Reviews

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.

20130904-000553.jpg

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.

20130904-000841.jpg

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!
