Style Trial: A Week of Fresh Meals, Delivered

Style Trial: A Week of Fresh Meals, Delivered

It’s hard to have a home-cooked meal when you’re never home, but this trial kept a social butterfly on the go with fresh, healthy and delicious meals.

Anyone who’s ever worked with (or met) me knows that I’m always up for going out to dinner with friends, attending after-work events or arranging Netflix and chill nights with my girlfriends.

I love my busy lifestyle but it does mean that I hardly ever eat a proper home-cooked meal. (OK, I’m also guilty of buying my lunch during the week because who am I to say no to sushi or burgers?)

When I heard I would be trialling fresh and healthy meal delivery service Fresh Meals 2 You, I was relieved I wouldn’t even have to contemplate battling the supermarket lines after work. And since I already had work events and catch-ups with friends penciled in for that week, anything that could help streamline my schedule was 100 per cent welcome. And it would save me some serious $$$. Winning.

I had 10 dinner-size portion meals delivered and I was determined to not let a single delicious dish go to waste. I paired two dishes together for each day of the week, taking five meals to work for lunches and leaving five at home for dinners.

Every night, I dashed home from work to get ready for an event and having the prepared meals made life so much easier. I got to (gasp!) have a home-cooked meal before I stepped out. And they were so good!

I haven’t heard amazing things about pre-packaged meals but I was pleasantly surprised with the taste. The meat and vegies were cooked to perfection – no plastic or cardboard taste at all!

My favourite dish was the Super Lean Eye Fillet Beef; I’m a massive steak lover and order it every chance I get but I’ve never perfected the art of cooking it for myself. Fresh Meals 2 U’s medium-rare steak just took a few minutes in the microwave and it was just as good as any I have had out. The best part about this dish is they gave me two for the week. How did they know?!

All in all, I loved the variety and the flavours of all the dishes. I found the whole meal plan super convenient with my busy schedule and I would 100 per cent do it again for that home-cooked taste on the go.
