MuscleFood - The answer for all your protein needs!


For full disclosure purposes, I received a a bunch of products from MuscleFood for free in return for an honest review. I am not being paid to talk about or advertise their products. All opinions of the product are my own. This blog post contains affiliate links for MuscleFood. If you make a purchase through these links, I will receive a small commission.
Protein takes such a crucial role when you exercise on a regular basis. Whether you're a runner, a gym go-er or even if you just like to do workouts in the comfort of your own home, it's important that you ensure that you're getting in enough protein. When you exercise, you use up you energy stores. There is a 30 minute window post exercise where you should refill these stores by eating/drinking good quality protein/carbs to make sure your body starts the repair work needed on your muscles.

90 minutes to 2 hours after exercise, you should have good quality proteins to ensure that the repair process of the muscles continues and decreases your risk of injury. Eating a balanced, healthy meal is ideal.  If you don't have protein after a workout - your body will start to breakdown other muscles in your body to help try and repair those that have been damaged. Having protein helps to repair and construct new muscle tissue(muscle growth ftw!).

I was so excited to receive a package of protein-related goodies from MuscleFood the other week. I've heard great things about them. I've seen a lot of happy customers that have bought products from them and always see great feedback on social media, so I was happy to get the opportunity to see what they were all about!

MuscleFood is a food delivery company that provides premium lean meats, high-protein foods and sports nutrition supplements for athletes, bodybuilders, fitness enthusiasts.. basically anyone!

First impressions of the company are great, their staff are helpful and a pleasure to talk to.The ordering and delivering is fantastic! My order came very quickly after I'd gotten an email for confirmation - I was able to track my package and was sent email/text message updates on when it would arrive.

My order arrived in a big box -  inside, all the items were packed securely with lots of padding, ice-packs to keep everything cool and an extra bubble padded bag for all the cold meats. - All the items arrived fresh, not frozen - the box is temperature controlled and it keeps everything fresh for up to 72 hours!

Here's what I received:
2 x 6oz - Great British Hache Steaks || 2.5kg - Premium Skinless Chicken Breasts || 2 x 400g - Extra Lean British Beef Mince || 1kg Southern Fried Chicken Breast Fillets || Virtually ZERO Fat Cheddar || Mighty Meat High Protein Pizza || Prutella Chocolate Hazelnut Spread || Nuts 'n More Salted Caramel Peanut Butter || Dr Zaks Wholemeal Protein Bread

MuscleFood pride themselves on providing top quality products at low, competitive prices and they're definitely doing that! What's better, is that when you buy in bulk or buy more of a certain item, you save more too!

Their meat is responsibly sourced, has no added salt, water or any other additives and meats are finely trimmed of fat. You're paying for great quality with MuscleFood!

The meats(the chicken/steaks) didn't lose their size during cooking, I've found a lot with supermarket bought meat that they tend to shrink when cooked(shrinkage is dependent on fat and moisture content along with temp and how long it's cooked for). As there's hardly any fat on the meat and there's no added water - they didn't tend to shrink much at all.

There are amazing savings when you buy things in bulk. For e.g. A 5 kg pack of Premium chicken breast is £25, only £6 more than a 2.5 kg pack on their website! £6 extra! for double the amount of chicken, WHAT! - Like I said, the more you buy, the more you save - and you can always freeze the chicken for later use!

They also do a lot of Bundle Deals where you can bulk buy or get variety packs to try out different products, they have some fantastic deals available!

They also sell a variety of other products too, not just meat! They sell everything from veggies and fruit(whole and pre-cut), ice-cream, cheese and even pizza! to nuts, nut butters, spreads, protein bars, crisps and even protein bread and pasta!

I noticed very recently too that they've started to do prepared meals which is perfect for those that are into meal prep and macro tracking - they provide all the macros for each of the meals too which is convenient.

I got to try out some of the Dr Zak's Wholemeal Protein along with some Nuts 'n More PB and their new Prutella(protein nutella!). I must say, I'm a massive fan and they're definitely things I will purchase again in the future!
High Protein Breakfast! Toasted Protein bread with PB and Pruella.
The protein bread is great, I didn't think it tasted much different to a normal wholemeal bread, maybe a little more dense than normal. The PB is amazing, I've managed to stop myself from eating it by the spoonful but it's tempting. The Prutella is interesting, I enjoyed it and thought it tasted very similar to Nutella - but it's thicker and more grainy - which might not be to everyone's tastes.

I got to try one of their new Protein Pizza's too! I was quite excited about this. We don't have Pizza very often. They're high in protein, low in carbs and perfect for after an evening workout. I wasn't sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised, it's got a really thin base but is still very flavoursome, I was impressed and so was Phillip!

Thus far, with everything I've tried, I've been thoroughly impressed with the quality of the products and me and Phillip are definitely going to buy from here in the future for our meats - their deals are just too good to miss.

People are often concerned about ordering meat products online - with the worry that they will receive the cheap cuts of meat - however - this not the case with MuscleFood - I definitely think their meat is much better quality than what I've bought in the past from supermarkets.
