As you may know, I am a Slimming World member. I am just 6lbs off target and for me, a main part of my diet is meat. Slimming World enables you to eat lean cuts of meat with a 5% of less fat content. I was thrilled when Muscle Food contacted me and offered me to review their New Year Lean meat selection hamper, and I am also giving one away at the bottom of this post.
Muscle Food stocks a huge variety of food products, not just hampers. They have launched a range of clean eating lunch meals that you simply need to pop in the microwave. There are also ranges of dairy products, seafood products and lots of sweet and savoury health snacks.
I have never ordered fresh food through the post so was intrigued how it would all work. It was so simple – you order and can select a delivery date that suits you (next day is available for some products) and then on your delivery date, you are sent a text/email by the courier giving you an hour timeslot for delivery, meaning you aren’t hanging around all day. It all comes in a temperature controlled box which has hydrated gel sheets to ensure your meat is kept chilled. The items are in a bubble wrapped bag to make sure comes as fresh as possible. The delivery was incredibly smooth and easy.
The Muscle Food New Year Lean Selection includes 56 items. They are itemised below:
- 12 x 200g Premium Chicken Breasts
- 2 x 170g Free Range Rump Steaks
- 2 x 170g Free Range Pure Sirloins
- 2 x 170g Free Range Hache Steaks
- 2 x 170g Dragon Fire Hache Steaks
- 2 x 113g Free Range Steak Burgers
- 2 x 400g Extra Lean Steak Mince
- 6 x 75g Low Fat Pork Sausages
- 6 x 75g Low Fat Cumberlands
- 2 x 113g Premium Chicken Burgers
- 2 x 113g Chilli & Lime Burgers
- 10 x 35g Low Fat Bacon Medallions
- 1 x 1kg Whole Sweet Potatoes
- 1 x 250g Curly Green Kale
- 1 x 30g Deep South Seasoning
- 1 x 200g High Protein Cheese
- 1 x 30g High Protein Scratchings
- 1 x 45g Coconut Protein Bar
I couldn’t believe how much there was! It all came packed well with no damage and the food all felt nice and chilled.
The products had over a week for their use by date so I have planned my meals up to this date and have frozen the rest. I am looking forward to using the kale to make some kale crisps. It’s brilliant as alongside my Slimming World meals, this will also be suitable for all the family to have stews, chilli’s, curries and yummy burger treats. We were also sent the biggest sweet potatoes I have ever seen!
We end up getting most of our meat from the supermarket and it seems to be so expensive for small quantities. I absolutely loved the chicken breasts and realised how the ones I’ve been having really lose their taste. They are big, juicy and full of flavour. I feel like I have been converted. With a husband that works away and two three year old twins, shopping isn’t always easy so it all being delivered to my door. Free delivery is available for all orders over £75.
The girls enjoyed my coconut protein bar and kept asking for me. It’s nice knowing that they are also having nutritious snacks that are super tasty. I loved the variety in the box and would definitely Muscle Food recommend for such simple easy food shopping at a great price.
