Muscle Food Review – Level Up Your Meal Prep Game!



==========CLICK THE BANNER TO CHECK OUT MUSCLE FOOD’S LATEST OFFERS==========

We all know how hard it can be sometimes to eat healthily and make the right food choices when we’re hungry. How easy would it be if we could have everything we needed conveniently delivered to our doorsteps in a chilled box? Planning and preparing meals can take some time, so an online food supplier may be the solution which allows you to level up your meal prep game and take away some of the hassle.

In my Muscle Food review we’ll explore who they are, why you may choose to buy from them, the range of products they offer and whether they provide value for money.

Who Are Muscle Food & Why Them?

Muscle Food are known to be one of the largest meat suppliers within the UK. They pride themselves in being passionate about sport and nutrition as well as being able to help people reach their goals, whether you’re an athlete or the everyday health conscious person. On their website, they boast that they provide the best meats and supplements on the market at a cost effective price. They also guarantee top quality produce tailored to individuals needs and diet.

Now, this all sounds very good but do they actually deliver what they promise? When I first ordered from Muscle Food I was a little skeptical about how my order would arrive. I thought, as you can imagine, a box full of fresh meat probably wouldn’t last very long whilst being carted around in a delivery van all day and then to top it off it would have to sit on my doorstep waiting for me to get home.

What I didn’t realise is that Muscle Food had already thought about this and they provide every order with a specially designed box to keep their orders chilled. There was no need to be skeptical after all!

Product Range & Quality

Where do I even begin!? Without listing every product they sell, allow me to try to break things down a little because they literally sell anything from kangaroo steaks right through to your everyday vitamin supplements. Muscle Food offer a selection of: meats, seafood, vegetables, vegan foods, egg products, dairy products, snacks, drinks, hampers, ready made meals as well as a variety of supplements. There’s a lot of products to choose from! But is it any good?

From my own experience I can say yes it is. The products I’ve received have always been fresh, delivered on time and have been a much better quality than your average supermarket bought goods. The meats also have so much more flavour as they’re not pumped full of water like the shop bought products as well as generally being higher in protein and lower in fat.

Is It Cost Effective?

If you’re looking to buy in bulk you will save money compared to buying the same products at your average supermarket. If, on the other hand, you decide to place a one time order every so often you may end up paying a little extra. However, compared to the quality difference some would argue you pay for what you get. Let’s have a look to see what the price differences are across a couple of products compared to other well known supermarkets.

1) Chicken Breast Fillets: Muscle Food: £5.00 per kg | Asda: £5.79 per kg | Sainsbury’s: £6.00 per kg

2) Turkey Mince: Muscle Food: £7.38 per kg | Asda: £6.58 per kg | Sainsbury’s: £8.00 per kg

3) Cod Fillets: Muscle Food: £9.00 per kg | Asda: £15.19 per kg | Sainsbury’s: £13.00 per kg

4) Lean Beef Mince: Muscle Food: £8.75 per kg | Asda: £5.50 per kg | Sainsbury’s: £7.00 per kg

As you can see, prices vary across the board for the same or very similar products. Sometimes you may have to choose between quality, price and/or convenience. Also keep an eye out for the offers! (The prices shown above may also vary).

The Benefits To Your Nutritional Goal

If you enjoy being in the kitchen, have time to prepare your meals, already follow a workout plan and know your nutritional goal then a tailored hamper may make life a little easier. As well as offering a vast selection of products, Muscle Food also offer a large selection of hampers to choose from ranging in price, personal preference and overall goal.

Maybe you know your goal and have a workout routine but just don’t have the time to prepare your meals. This is also accommodated for with another huge selection of ready made meals on offer. Again these vary in price, types of meals and you can even select meals with a certain nutritional value to match your goals e.g low calorie or high protein.

If on the other hand you know what goal you would like to achieve but you’re not sure how to get there, then Muscle Food also offer diet & exercise plans. This option allows you to set your own goals, which will then give you a selection of ready made meals to choose from to suite your needs as well as access to an online personal trainer to provide your workouts. All the meal prep will be done for you and the workouts already planned for you to follow.

The Pros And Cons

Just like with everything else, every product or company has its positives and negatives. From my own experience and from others who have used Muscle Food, I will sum up some of the pros and cons:

Pros:

  • They have a vast range of products and they can be tailored to your needs.
  • The quality is usually far above the shop bought equivalent.
  • It saves you time on preparing meals and shopping as your order is delivered right to your doorstep.
  • You can gain access to a Personal Trainer if you need guidance with working plans and routines.
  • Orders are kept fresh by being delivered in a chilled box.
  • Is recommended and used by well known athletes, celebrities and personal trainers.

Cons:

  • Some products may be a little pricier than the shop bought alternative.
  • There can be a high spend required to receive free or reduced delivery charges.
  • It has been known for occasional items to be missing in orders.

In summary, Muscle Food delivers a massive choice of great quality products which are freshly packed and delivered directly to you. Yes, you can sometimes pay a little extra but you’re saving time both in the kitchen and shopping.

I’m a big fan and I highly recommend them. If you use them or have used Muscle Food before, then leave a comment and let me know what your favourite products are. Likewise, if you have any questions about using Muscle Food then leave a comment and I’ll do my best to point you in the right direction.

A very interesting company, especially for someone like me who runs five miles every morning, then has little time within the day to prepare proper healthy meals. 

I’m wondering if there is some sort of threshold of price you need to reach that determines the distance they deliver, especially in rural areas – is this the case?

Hi Chris,

Muscle Food is a UK based company so if you live outside of the UK they will not deliver unfortunately. However, within the UK they seem to deliver mostly everywhere…you can check by postcode on their website. https://www.musclefood.com/thinking-of-ordering#anchor4

Hope this helps! 

Muscle food looks oh so convenient. What I would do not to have to go to the supermarket to shop anymore.

Unfortunately this is a UK based product, so I highly doubt that you can order from anywhere in the world.

In South Africa, we have a similar thing called Fit Chef, but you are delivered healthy frozen meals that are already cooked. Muscle food looks more cost effective, but that is probably because you still have to cook the food yourself. At least if you order food this way you won’t be tempted to buy other rubbishy foods when visiting your local supermarket.
