These days it seems we all have hectic schedules. Personally, my days are jammed; between juggling my consulting business and my online business my free time is precious. I need to schedule walking my dog, hitting the gym, stocking up on groceries and even girls nightout. So needless to say, I’m always open to new ways I can save some time. I work from home most days because it saves 30 minutes (round trip) in commuting. Plus add up the time I don’t have to blow-dry my hair and I have an extra 90 minutes.
Meal prep has always been timing consuming and daunting to me. But for over 10 years I’ve been pretty consistent on setting time aside on Sunday evenings. If I don’t have half a dozen chicken breasts cooked or a fresh pot of turkey chili made my week gets chaotic and I start making really bad food choices.
I placed my first order at 2GuysWithKnives on Thursday evening and the food was delivered Sunday afternoon. I bought two main courses, 2 salads and a bag of protein balls for my sweet cravings. The total with tax and free delivery was $68.25. Additionally, I spent $30.00 at the grocery store on fruits, vegetables, nuts, eggs, and almond milk. Being this was my first order, I wasn’t sure if it would be enough food to fuel me through my busy work schedule and daily workouts?
The short answer is no, I ran out of meals on Thursday. That being said, the meals were fresh, very flavorful and packed with nutrients! For me, the entrees (rectangle containers) were big enough for two generous portions. But more importantly, I saved about 30-45 minutes a day in the kitchen! This week I placed a bigger order to ensure I would have enough food to keep me going all week long!
Another bonus is that each meal has a detailed label with ALL ingredients used and nutritional fact and information. Below is my first order.
