Third order and loving it!
My Muscle Chef has changed the way we eat food. Removing the need for any meal prepping and the stress that comes with it has been simply wonderful. The meals taste more natural and home cooked rather than sugar filled crap you find with some other ready meals. There is also a good variety so you never get bored ( I love the new Teriyaki Lamb). The customer service is also amazing which is an added bonus. 5 stars, nothing less. If you are thinking about trying it out, you should!
First time buyer- hooked!!!
I researched around for a while and finally decided on my muscle chef because of the menu AND the options I recieved for delivery. I get it delivered Early Monday (2am) morning so it's ready for me to bring inside once I get up for work, chuck in the freezer, grab one to take for lunch and head out the door. Its so much more convenient than its competitors who only offer one chance to order a week (so if you forget- you've missed your chance that week).
Then i tried the food.... HOLY MOLEY IT IS GOOOOOOOD!!!!!
The Beef kofta with cauliflower curry is soooo delicious. The grilled garlic and herb chicken risotto tastes just like Mums! As soon as you open the microwave door, the most amazing smells come out and it just tastes so delicious!
Definitely ordering for next week!!!
Recipes have preservatives and thickeners
I've ordered My Muscle Chef a few times now and have tried a few of the different meals. What I was originally drawn to was the freshness and the simple ingredient lists that listed REAL FOODS. I just received my latest order and have found some new "additions" to the ingredients list. These include: Flavour Enhancer (635), preservatives (200), artificial sweetener, "Colours", Thickeners (vegetable gum), chicken booster, vegetable booster... Granted, these were newer meals that I was trying, but I was disappointed none the less.
If this is something that bothers you, I would urge you to check the ingredients list before choosing a meal, some are still okay (Chicken Burrito Bowl and Moroccan beef tagine being the best I have tried).
I've also noticed that the meals have gotten a lot "saucier" than they used to be, another cost saving measure no doubt. I counted 10 pieces of ravioli in my meal and the container was full of sauce. The
I once purchased 5.4 meals but ended up throwing them away due to the sheer number of additives in the ingredients (and awful flavours). I hope that now Muscle Chef have purchased 5.4 that they do not continue down the reduced quality, high-additive route and terrible sauce to food content ratio to save costs during their expansion.
The Best I Have Tried
These meals are truly the best I have tried, the quality, freshness and packaging are 2nd to none and I have tried quite a few brands. I am a fitness instructor and for me to have the convenience of high quality nutritious and tasty prepared meals on hand is extremely important.
Tasty and filling
I've ordered these meals for a few weeks. When you eat alone, you just don't spend the time necessary to buy and cook anything interesting. No more batch cooking the same two meals all week. No more take-away or impulse purchases when that gets tiresome. And 'I just ate' is a wonderful excuse to avoid expensive meals when friends invite you out!
There's so much variety! And they're healthy! I've already lost 2.5kg of excess weight (though I've got a long way to go)!
Kangaroo is an interesting choice - the Roo Kofta was amazing - and it's only the 2nd time in my life I enjoyed eating roo meat.
Every meal I've tried (except for the braised beef and potatoes - it's not inspiring & always comes out of the microwave cold) is amazing! I love the tastes, textures, freshness, it's all great! And they get me so much closer to my macro targets (and most meals are already in MyFitnessPal)!
Delivery is straightforward. I love the overnight option in my area, it's way smarter than leaving food out in the sun all day. Online ordering options are easy. And I think I'll reuse the woolen insulation mats as supplementary curtains once winter mornings go sub-zero! I'm certain they'll cut my heating bills - which can become astronomical around here!
Would be nice if there was an option to leave the ice bricks out for next week's driver to collect for potential reuse. Chemicals don't grow on trees! But I can live with it.
Amazing Customer Service!
Long Story Short, The Guy on the Phone offered me amazing Customer Service by helping me process my Order by the Phone as well as fast tracking my order when I was a bit uneasy with the courier choice if It was to be delivered the following week.
Amazing Personality and a Really Cool Guy, It's my first time using this food provider and I'm so excited for the food!
Delicious meals beats cooking !
Really surprised at how tasty these meals are, they are as good or better than you could cook yourself. We save so much time by not having to meal prep and we know we are eating nutritious and delicious food. Totally impressed and will continue to eat this food!
Absolute amazing customer service. Can not thank the team at mmc enough for all your help. Definitely will be staying with this company for future. Had a little issue from my own fault and the team were responded so quick and more then happy to offer such amazing help.
Thank you guys so much really appreciate all your effort.
You’re stupid if you order anything else!
I’ve meal prepped, I’ve cooked, I’ve tried so many different companies. My Muscle Chef is the bomb. It tastes so good! Arrived so quickly. I really appreciate the fact that meals don’t get watery when reheated. LOVE that it’s vaccum sealed not just a normal seal.
Oh and their website made is so bloody easy to swap meals. Well done champs.
The meals are delicious and varied and are exactly what I need in terms of balance of carbs and protein to steadily build size. I am very happy with my results. Thanks guys!
Great product and excellent service
The food is great, and service is fantastic, I was immediately offered a free replacement after my first box was stolen after delivery. I’m really happy with the product and the service received, the only feedback I have is that the packaging could be more discreet as food is an ever increasing target for theives.
Delicious pre-made meals!
Such an amazing selection of great meals, that taste just as if you'd cooked them yourself (if not better).
I was looking for a way to eat healthy, muscle building food without having to labour away for hours each week doing shopping and food prep etc. These guys make it all so much easier, and much more nutritional specific than I could myself.
Delicious convenience is the key here, and for the variety of meals you get the cost is much less than making each one yourself!
Keep up the good work guys and keep on innovating with different meals.
Poor quality food with a bonus feather
Got the cajun chicken from a Dodgey IGA and not only was it tasteless (I was hungry), there was a bird's feather included.
Disgusting and feel like it was made in a garage
Love love love!!!
The variety of meals on offer is awesome. They are delish and so fresh. I was super impressed with how they packaged the meals to keep them fresh and secure.
Very effective and tasty meals
The food is delivered and is exactly as described, great for if you want to lose weight or build muscle and tastes great, could not imagine life without it now, also great customer service from Krishan Dass
Needs a return/reuse scheme to eliminate excessive waste
The meals are of a big variety, very flavorful and easy to order, but with the ease of it all comes the downside of thousands of pieces of waste. There needs to be a return/reuse scheme with the ice packs. Getting 3-4 big ice packs every order is not practical, multiply this by the thousands of customers MMC has. Even if you save some, you are soon overwhelmed with them. I try donating them, but places don't really want them. I recycle the plastic containers, soft plastics and get use out of the wool, but the ice packs need some work. Either make them out of safe materials to be flushed down the toilet or sink, or have an option for people to only ask for 1 ice pack at a time. Something needs to be done! Otherwise it is a great product, but my moral compass really hates ordering them due to all the waste created for the sake of convenience. If they had a way to reduce their footprint, I would give them 5 stars.
Can only expect so much
After using You Foodz for a while and not really satisfied i decided to give My Muscle Chef a go (in Brisbane), I have come to the realisation you can only expect so much from these meals, a large portion of the meals where average at best. My one and only order.
Best tasting meals and great variety!
Very filling and delicious meals- Great value for money and so much variety. Easy to order online with a quick turnaround for meal delivery. The meals are also a lot bigger than other meals on the market.
Best out of them all by far !
I have tried all the meal delivery companies in the Sydney area - Muscle Chef was the last one to try before I gave up with them and wow!! I was blown away by the quality and flavour of the meals. These meals are amazing compared to the rest in terms of packaging, flavour , quality and texture. No more chewy chicken, flavourless, or just poor quality meats, no more watery frozen veges, no more beef like rubber - muscle chef is a keeper !
Above and Beyond
Apart from the meals being absolutely delicious, mymusclechef also goes above and beyond with service. After missing the delivery deadline, i got in contact with Theresa and she was able to organise my order for me for my desired date. Very much appreciated, happy & satisfied customer.
