Occasionally, I learn about a company that I immediately fall in love with. Being new to Florida, I’ve been missing some on my Boston go-to businesses. So, the search has been on since we moved to find all those day to day places that you become loyal to over time.
I was invited to a media tasting at a Fitlife Foods in Tampa last week, which is a company that I had hadn’t heard of prior to this tasting. The company is based in the Central Florida area and provides healthy meal options that are premade daily from scratch using delicious fresh ingredients.
The media tasting was my first time visiting a Fitlife Foods store but within minutes of walking into the store, I was hooked! As a busy mom, I am always looking for healthy and quick meal options for those crazy weeknights. As a blogger, I am frequently on the go and eating breakfast or lunch out of my car, I never knew that such a healthy and yummy option was available.
During the event, I had the privilege of meeting chef Andrew Ruga, and I can hand down honestly say, he has amazing skills! We tried several dishes, from breakfast plates to dessert, and every item that was put in front of me was delicious. However, the meals weren’t just delicious, a lot of chefs can create a yummy plate of food, what made these meals awesome was that I didn’t have to think twice about what I was putting in my mouth. Every meal is made with fresh and healthy ingredients which are listed along with the nutritional information on each meals packaging.
We tried Quinoa Hash, Tampa Bay BBQ Beef with Mac N’ Cheese, Simply Grilled Salmon, Carrot Cake, and so much more. I left with my belly full and very happy. My favorite was a tie between the chicken tortellini and the BBQ beef. I also can’t wait to bring home the Mac ‘n Cheese for my daughter, who asks for this meal for dinner every night. Fitlife Foods Mac ‘n Cheese is made without the heavy cream and with lots of hidden vegetables, I can kiss the mom guilt of serving bright orange macaroni to my kids goodbye.
One aspect of Fitlife Foods that has me really excited is Project U. A complimentary service that sets you up with a health and wellness advisor, who will take your BMI, weight, height and discuss your goals. Whether you are trying to lose weight or maintain your current weight, your health and wellness advisor will help you set up a plan that works for you.
I plan to take advantage of this free service soon! I learned last week that I have PCOS and one of the most important aspects of me overcoming the symptoms of this disease is to monitor what I put in my body and how I’m taking care of myself. This company crossed my path at the perfect time and showed me how easy it is to get a healthy meal with lots of vegetables and protein on my kitchen table.
The option to run into a store and have a healthy meal ready in 2 minutes sounds amazing, but Fitlife Foods just upped their game even higher with delivery! In certain locations, you can order 8-12 meals or 20-24 meals delivered, along with the purchase of a cooler that holds 12 meals and Fitlife Foods delivers made-from-scratch meals right to you. Now choosing to eat healthy can’t be any easier.
The food was delicious, the staff was incredibly friendly, and the entire concept of this business has me ready to be a frequent customer.
