Angela: We were contacted by the lovely Lucy at Feed Me Real Food Co. to try out their pre-made meals with no obligation to review them (paleo friendly too). We thought why not – free lunches for the week! Jokes aside, we love everything Feed Me represent and wanted to get behind such an awesome start up business.
We honestly all loved the meals and here’s why…
Their Special Difference
They only use grass fed, free range, ethically raised meat and poultry and wholefood ingredients. The meals always promise to be:
- Gluten free
- Grain free
- Dairy free
- Soy free
- Seed Oil free
- Refined sugar free
- Chemical/pesticide free
- Preservative free
- Real Food
So as you can see, they align with everything that we shout about here at 180 Nutrition 🙂
Here was our menu for the week:
Monday – Zucchini Bolognaise
(Pork and veal mince, zucchini, carrot, celery, onion, tomato, bacon, coconut cream, coconut oil, garlic, chilli powder, salt, pepper)
OMG I thought this was awesome. I always make bolognaise with beef mince. Really liked the mix of the pork and veal. Also had a bit of a kick from the chilli powder. The portion size was massive for me. Loved the zucchini noodles and they were really thin with a little bit of a crunch.
Paleo Coconut Bounty Bites
(Desiccated coconut, coconut cream, coconut oil, cocoa powder, rapadura sugar, salt)
These were really great really cold and hit the spot! I popped them in the freezer. They make for a tasty paleo friendly snack. Very easy though to eat them all at once!
Tuesday – Pesto Chicken
(Chicken, brussels sprouts, pumpkin, onions, bacon, pesto (almonds, parsley, olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper), coconut oil, salt, pepper, thyme)
The bacon and the pesto made this dish. I love pesto! Store-bought ones are always full of bad quality oil. Great to taste the olive oil. The portion size was good for me.
Paleo Cocoa-Nutty Bites
(Medjool dates, cashews, coconut, sesame seeds, cocoa powder)
Yummy and nutty and were a great little after lunch treat with a cuppa. They make for a tasty paleo friendly snack. Very easy though to eat them all at once!
Wednesday – Indian Spiced Lamb
(Lamb, sweet potato, tomato, onion, seasonal greens, coconut oil, garlic, salt, garam masala, coriander, pepper, cinnamon, chilli flakes)
The lamb had a good kick but not too much. I was the right side of full and the vegetables were nice and crisp.
Thursday – Smokey Spiced Pork
(Cauliflower, pork, zucchini or seasonal greens, onion, filtered water, coconut oil, paprika, salt, chilli powder, cumin, pepper, turmeric, cinnamon)
Another good dish. Meat was yummy and tender. Needed a bit of salt but I am a bit of a salt fiend. Cauliflower rice is always a winner in my book too!
Friday – Beef Rendang
(Beef, coconut cream, carrot, red onion, garlic, ginger, red chilli, coconut oil, lime, lemongrass, cloves, turmeric, cumin, coriander, cinnamon, salt, pepper, cauliflower)
Great dish. As with the Smokey Spiced Pork it came with cauliflower rice. Love this as an alternative to rice. Good way to get more veggies in.
Feed Me is a great alternative to home cooked clean meals if you don’t have the time yourself. I would definitely use them again. I could see myself using them when my husband is away as a no hassle option for the week. Guy and Stu are running around most of the time so I can see them ordering these for weekly lunches. They are cranky when they aren’t fed well.
UPDATE 28/04/19: It seems that the Feed Me Real Food Co. are no longer trading. If you are interested in healthy ready-made meals check out the Pete Evans range here.
