I used to be a huge lover of prepping my meals ahead of time. Robbie, My Fiancé, and I would spend Sundays making a fortnights worth of meals (or in his case a months worth!). It would be great to know we had it all ready and set out and with conflicting schedules it worked well for us. I found the only way to make sure I ate enough thought-out the day with a busy schedule was to prep everything.
That was until I discovered 5point4 Meals! Their incredible meals are so tasty and by qualified chefs. The variation in the meal flavors and meats (and their vego options) means that I can just heat it and run but not feel like im on the hamster wheel of chicken breast and brocolli! No meal prep! Hooray! Being a workaholic these meals are amazingly convenient! I’m totally guilty of popping it in the microwave whilst posting on socials on my phone for 4 minutes and then returning to my desk to keep working whilst eating. I’ve really tried to take note of eating mindfully to avoid overeating in one sitting, which I do tend to do because I skip or forget meals when I am in a hurry or working on huge projects. But thankfully with these delish meals they are portion sized so even if I gulp it down (ooops!) to quickly I know that I haven’t eaten to much.
An honest review – I tried FivePointFour meals some time ago when they first started and loved the convenience of just ordering and forgetting about it (no big grocery shops!) but I wasn’t “in love” with the taste. The meals were good but I found myself craving other foods. Then I read somewhere a little while ago they had changed their menu and kitchen and I was curious to see if there was a difference. So I ordered some just to try whilst working on the Miss Universe National Costume (so I knew I would have food available when cooking was way to much extra work!). And since getting back on the bandwagon I have to say they were good before but they are totally game changing now! The flavours and meal variation is amazing and I finish a meal feeling full but also totally content. I know I’m getting the perfect amount of protein and veg. I’m completely addicted and so excited because I feel like I have more energy with the regular fuel (without the fuss!) and also am slimming down which, with a wedding coming up, I am pretty thrilled about!! I’m going to stick to a 12 week challenge to optimize my productivity and get going on my health and fitness pre-wedding! Over the last 3 weeks eating 5point4 I have lost 2kg! How awesome is that! Hot wedding bod here I come!
