    Ask anyone who knows me and they'll tell you I'm a terrible meal-prepper. Do I want rows of stacked meals in colour-coordinated containers? Yes. Any chance it's gonna happen? No.

    So, when I got offered the chance to try out some Nourish'd meals β€” you better believed I jumped on it.

    In case you don't already know, Nourish'd is a meal-delivery service. However, instead of getting the ingredients to cook yourself, Nourish'd takes the service one step further and prepares all your meals for you.

    I was so excited that I forgot to take a photo of the box, but this is what my 15 meals looked like, unpacked.

    I thought that this plan would be best for me, because since WFH I've been really struggling to eat healthily. I wanted something filling and sustainable for lunch AND dinner. I got 14 lunch and dinner meals, plus a little cheeky chia pudding for a brekkie.

    I started out with the tuna quinoa salad because (if I'm being really honest) it looked the worst. I did not think it sounded appealing at all β€” but my first bite blew me away. It was delicious.

    Light and fluffy, but somehow filling β€” this was a perfect lunch dish.

    Plus, the best thing about it was how much protein was in there. I mean, we've all had that experience haven't we? Buying a pre-made meal only to have two tiny pieces of paltry chicken when the photo on the box looks absolutely LOADED.

    But with Nourish'd you're actually getting the bang for your buck.

    Throughout the week I kept commenting on the amount of protein I was getting in my meals. The beef massaman curry had plenty of meat and the amount served with the corned beef dish was absolutely perfect.

    It should be noted that I was trying out the "large" meals, so the amount of protein might vary between sizes. But, that's kind of a good thing because let's face it: None of us have the exact same appetite. The sizes include "standard", "large", "athlete" or you can mix and match.

    My partner had a couple cheeky Nourish'd meals as well and even he was impressed by the taste! He ate cauliflower rice with his butter chicken without realising at first (and he's not the biggest cauli fan).

    Of course, that meant I had to give up some of my Nourish'd lunches, but what can I say? Love makes you do strange things.

    But honestly, beside the great taste and protein heavy meals, the best thing about Nourish'd is the flexibility.

    Before choosing your meals each week, you can have a look at the menu and find out which meals are dairy-free, vegetarian, low carb and more. Plus, all of the meals are naturally gluten-free anyway. You can choose between sizes, menu and how many meals you're looking for each week.

    And of course, you're not stuck in a subscription. You can choose between a one-off order or a weekly renewal. Plus, you can also change the size of your box if your circumstances change.

    Nourish'd is also a registered NDIS provider, meaning if you qualify, you can get your meals delivered as part of your plan β€” and that's pretty cool.

    So, if you're someone who's had it with trips to the grocery store, messy meal prep and the laborious clean up β€” maybe give Nourish'd a go.

    E!

    With meal plans starting from $69.35 for five meals, there's not a whole lot of reason not to give it a go.
