Great tasting, convenient, clean eating
Have made it only halfway through our first 10 meal Paleo box due to lots of travelling, but already super pleased with all we’ve eaten. These meals are a great way to deal with the busy weeknight crunch and also save us a bunch of time planning, shopping and prepping on the weekend. Portions are generous and the fact that they can go directly from freezer to microwave and still be delicious and fresh is another bonus—no need to even think about thawing in advance. Had one issue with FedEx cancelling delivery of our first order due to a damaged box, but Diane and her team were responsive and very prompt in getting us a replacement box. Will be ordering again!
Delicious "home" cooked meals without actually having the time to cook. True life savers. The food is tasty, reheats surprisingly well and the portions are GENEROUS. I've been going through a season of life where I just don't have a lot of spare time and energy. These are a life saver to keep me in the healthy habits I crave.
I was resistant to trying a meal service because I love to cook and I am very picky about my food. I was proven wrong by balanced bites. I loved almost every meal in the paleo box, especially the balsalmic beef and the pork soulvaki. My one disappointment was the al pastor pork, which I found to be way too spicy and the pork didn't seem to be cooked long enough. That cut of meat can be very chewy and fatty if not slow cooked. That was an aberration though; everything else was very good. Glad I tried it!
Hi Nina! Thanks so much for your order and your review. I’m glad you loved almost every meal! The Al Pastor Pork IS a spicy dish, many love it for that reason - and for the pork fat! I personally pan sear that one to reheat it as it can melt down the fat a bit more but a lot of folks love it as-is. We all have our favorites, right?! Good news is, you can select around it with the build-a-box option! Cheers and thanks again! Diane :-)
Easy and delicious!
So easy to quickly grab and bring with you to work. Not only are they convenient they are sooooo tasty! I just bought my second round and have 2 friends trying as well. Thank you!!!
Hey Rachel! I'm so glad to hear you're loving the meals and referring friends! I hope you're giving them your Bite Bucks link - if you didn't, shoot me an email to hello @ balancedbites.com if you know they ordered and we'll make sure you get referral points for them! Cheers! Diane
My overall experience was good. The Barbeque Beef was my favorite. The beef was perfectly cooked. I would say most of the dishes were seasoned well and did not taste like frozen dinners. Some of the meat in the Al pastor pork and lemon chicken were fatty so I had to get rid of most of it. All and all the experience was a positive one but because I am someone who buys organic chicken and grass fed beef, I probably wouldn’t order again. I did start to get bored a few days in. At the price point of these dishes ( which I think is reasonable because of the convenience) I can spend the same money on organic and local foods. I think these meals are good for someone who doesn’t cook a whole lot or who might be traveling.
