I’d intended to finishing eating last few items in my small freezer before stocking up but the lovely people at Musclefood had another great offer. I’d been dubious about buying meat this way before I placed my first order (this one was my fourth) but have been very pleasantly surprised not only by the quality of their meat but also by the fantastic customer service. (Not a sponsored post – just sharing the joy)!
I had a minor issue with my first and second orders – and the customer service team were absolutely brilliant – quick response, really friendly, replacement products and/or equivalent value vouchers offered. Musclefood obviously empower their customer service staff to solve problems and it shows. (The only company I’ve had a similar pain free and excellent customer service experience with was Abel and Cole).
So this is what a month’s worth of evening meals looks like – I may have gone a bit heavy on the burger ordering this time but their burgers are delicious (and were on offer) and just what I need with a giant salad or heap of veggies as a post gym meal on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.
- 4 x chicken breast fillets
- 4 x mature free range rump steaks
- 4 x venison burgers
- 2 x mature free range sirloin steaks
- 2 x free range hache steaks
- 2 x dragon’s fire hache steaks
- 2 x free range rump steak burgers
- 2 x wild boar and apple burgers
- 2 x buffalo, tomato and basil burgers
- 2 x Waygu steak burgers
- 2 x matured free range minute steaks
- 2 x extra lean steak burgers
- 6 x low fat pork sausages
- 6 x low fat Cumberland sausages
All of that will make me between 36-40 meals (since their giant chicken breast fillets easily stretch to two or more meals) and the burgers are so filling one with a lot of veg is more than enough for me.
I paid £42.90 which included delivery to my door. Subtract the delivery cost and it’s going to work out about £0.97 per meal plus veg. Which strikes a happy balance for me in terms of cost, quality (always excellent) and environmental factors.
Add in the veg (supplied by Riverford) and you’re probably looking at around £1.20-£1.50 a meal. The Riverford weekly boxes feed me for both evening meals and lunch (with some added extras like cheese or fish). More about that in future posts.
