Muscle Foods? Yes please!



With almost all forms of shopping migrating to the online domain, it isn't any surprise that you can purchase hampers full of high protein food to help fuel your fitness endevours.

Muscle Foods, a family owned business and one of the leading meat suppliers in the UK, is one supplier that I have always returned to. With their quality, value for food and excellent customer service, it is easy to see why they are at the forefront of this industry.

Normally, we'd go to Morrisons or Asda (Big supermarket chains here in the UK, for all of our non-UK readers!) to do our weekly shop and deciding what meat to buy is often a daunting task. The fact is, meat isn't cheap and finding good meat that isn't injected with water costs more pennies. 

The guys at Muscle Foods have been so kind to send us a few hampers for reviewing purposes and what we received looked awesome! 

The pictures are made up of three different hamper sets: The Outstanding Summer BBQ Hamper, the Super Fresh Fish Taster Selection and the Next Day Meat, Fish & Snack Variety Hamper. The Summer BBQ Hamper is currently out of stock, but keep your eyes peeled with Summer being just around the corner. 

The food arrives in Muscle Foods iconic custom boxes, which are packaged really well and ensure your food arrives fresh and in pristine condition. As you would expect, the food arrives really quickly, but in the unlikely event where it is delayed, the food will stay chilled for up to 48 hours!  We were really excited when our box came, so we went all out and had to get some pictures of the food laid out.

As you can see from the pictures below, this is ALOT of food! 


What you will get in the Outstanding Summer BBQ Hamper:

* 2 x 170g Free Range Pure Rump Steaks
* 2 x 170g Free Range Centre Cut Steaks
* 2 x 113g Premium Buffalo Burgers
* 1 x 450g Sticky Peking Rack of BBQ Ribs
* 2 x 170g Chicken Breast Fillets
* 6 x 75g Meaty Pork Sausages
* 4 x 113g Rump Steak Burgers
* 2 x 113g Chicken Breast Burgers

In the Super Fresh Fish Taster Selection you can expect to find:

* 2 x 113g Fresh Salmon Fillets
* 2 x 125g Fresh Tuna Fillets
* 2 x 4-5oz Fresh Swordfish Loins
* 150g of Cooked and Peeled King Prawns
* 500g of Broccoli Florets
* 250g of Curly Green Kale
* 1kg of Baby Potatoes
* 1 x 25g sachet of Luxury Meat Seasoning

And finally, In the Next Day Meat, Fish & Snack Variety Hamper:

* 2.5kg of Premium Skinless Chicken Breast
* 2 x 6-7oz Free Range Hache Steaks
* 2 x 6oz Dragon's Fire Hache Steaks
* 2 x 4oz Extra Lean Steak Burgers
* 400g of Free Range Steak Mince
* 342g of Giant Free Range Beef Meatballs
* 1kg of Frozen Tilapia Fillets
* 454g of Low Fat Cumberland Sausages
* 454g of Pulled Pork Sausages
* 10 x 35g of Low Fat Back Bacon Medallions
* 50g Lemon Crunch Protein bar
* 30g High Protein Pork Scratchings
* 1 x Loaf of Wholemeal Protein Bread
* 1 x Sachet of Deep South Seasoning

As you could imagine, this would take up a whole lot of space in your freezer (You must freeze the food on delivery, unless you plan to eat it all in 2-3 days!), if it was purchased from anywhere else, but Muscle Foods have clearly had storage in mind when they were designing their individual packaging. All of their Steaks, chicken and other filleted meats are all vacuum packed, to allow for optimum storage - I'd rather have simple, but practical packaging over bulky and fancy packaging that takes up half of your freezer space. 

Be pre-warned, you will spend some time individually wrapping up some of the larger portioned foods, namely the chicken, when they arrive - just don't do what I did and froze the whole 5kgs of chicken, resulting in a monstrous slab of protein that I had to hack down with a meat cleaver.... 



Lets talk about value. Muscle Foods sources it's product directly for suppliers allowing for a lot of it's food to be sold for discounted prices. When compared to the some big supermarket names, the price difference, their frequent discounts and offers, and more importantly - the quality, is substantial enough to merit it as a viable alternative to visiting your regular markets. 

Will I be using Muscle Foods as and alternative for buying my meat? The answer is absolutely! My experience with them has been great, and don't let the name scare you away, even if you aren't someone who is in to keep fit, give Muscle Foods a go. 

You can find Muscle Foods over on their website here, be sure to check it regularly as they update their website with awesome new deals and offers weekly!
