Simplicity is the highest form of complexity
When we first went into lockdown, we decided to try ordering ready-made fresh food online.
Our Millenial children had already tried My Food Bag and still love it, so we decided to give it a go too!
From the first delivery of our first box of 5 meals, we were astounded at the simple yet brilliant way of bringing beautiful produce, healthy recipes and delicious flavours together at home.
Each night we would lay out the simple ingredients for our fresh choice healthy meals which were approximately 450 calories each, with reduced carbohydrates.
We learnt how to use herbs and spices to enhance the flavours and how to enjoy foods that we would not have thought of.
From making cauliflower rice to eating Bok choy raw in a salad, the journey was remarkable.
Not only were the meals reduced carbs, but they contained no refined carbs or sugars and were naturally low in both gluten and dairy.
Each recipe only took minutes to prepare and we were astonished at the variety of spices and sauces like fish oil, red wine vinegar, and things like pearl couscous and soba noodles that we had forgotten about.
We started re-discovering how much we had enjoyed them in the past.
The recipes were easy to follow, and there is a compact recipe file holder that you can buy from them if you like to hold all of your new recipes.
Variety is the spice of life
I have to say that in conclusion, it was a great way of learning new ways of cooking and unlearning the old ways.
We no longer eat potatoes and choose to eat more fish and chicken rather than red meat.
We are also now conscious of what goodness is derived from each food source and continue to enjoy learning.
The only negative aspect that we found along the way, was that when we went out to eat in restaurants, we sometimes found the menu’s lacking, due to the great variety and choice of food that we had enjoyed while subscribing to My Food Bag.
Go on and try the “Greek-style Lentil Mezze” or “Creamy leek and spinach pie” – the choice is huge, and over the last 8 months or so, I don’t think we have had a repeat.
So 10 out of 10 to My Food Bag!
