We understand that many of our clients, just like Carly and me are working hard to tackle their career and raising children at the same time while trying to stick to their fitness routine AND stay on top of their nutrition habits.
Sometimes it just gets all too much, and all you want is a miracle worker that takes on some of your responsibilities before you hit the wall. I hear you. We've been there before. Good news is, there is a way out.
For one, you can trust expert fitness professionals to help you with your training plan to ensure you keep working towards your desired fitness goals, may that be passing the PFA to the ADF, being able to keep up with the basic training as a rookie or keeping fit between tasks as an army reserve soldier.
The other area where you can outsource is your kitchen. Many aspiring companies aim to provide convenient and/or pre-cooked meals so you can spend more time doing what you enjoy instead of planning, grocery shopping and prepping.
I think it's crucial that you stay in touch with your food and cook from time to time, but if your schedule is under pressure, there is nothing wrong with employing strategies that will help you stick to a balanced diet and save you time. In this article, I'll review 4 companies so you can make an informed decision on which if any of them would be your best choice for your cooked meals.
YourPrep is a company that aims to operate as eco-friendly as possible and provide flexibility in how you construct your meals to make sure you only receive food you love. The plastic boxes and packaging are recyclable, and if you leave them out each week, they will take the empty containers when they deliver your weekly supply.
We will explore three other options as some of them may be more beneficial for you for specific reasons, but if you live locally and are happy to consume your order within a week, we think YourPrep is the best option available.
So much so that we store their products at The Barracks Gym so our clients can make a last-minute meal decision when necessary. If you order from them, feel free to use our 5% discount code: "BARRACKS".
YouFoodz delivers meal boxes to 3,000+ locations in Australia, so if you are a bit further away from Brisbane, you can check their website if your area is within their caption area. The company works with local farmers to deliver on their promise of fresh food and quality protein. You can also choose to enrol onto their weight loss meal plan if that's a goal of yours.
3. Hello Fresh
Hello Fresh differs from the other options in that you will still have to cook your meal but the ingredients come already prepped and portioned with a recipe, and all you need to do is follow the instructions provided.
Ordering from the company will save you the time you'd spend with grocery shopping and preparing the ingredients, but if you enjoy the cooking process itself, you can have the best of the two worlds: cooking with convenience.
4. Gym Food Australia
As the name suggests, Gym Food Australia is committed to helping its customers achieve their fitness goals with carefully designed, calorie and macro counted meals. You have 4 plan options where the average calorie per meal is between 234 and 587 calories.
If you need help figuring out which plan is best for you, they have a questionnaire you can fill out. GFA also delivers nationwide and have a postcode checker to find out if your address is served by their couriers.
There you have it, four options to help you out in the kitchen when you feel you could use that time elsewhere, whether that's to spend more quality time with your family, working on your fitness or just enjoying activities that charge your batteries.
Whatever your reasons, opting for convenience doesn't have to mean you need to lower the standard of your food choices anymore.
