Today I’m very excited to bring you a review from the first meal prep company I have tried/worked with! I have always thought it was a great idea to have well made pre-made meals ready to be heated and consumed similar to those unhealthy frozen TV dinners. Diet To Go comes in and fits the bill perfect.

They not only have one menu, but 3 separate menus. Balance contains well balanced macros and taste without having seafood or vegetarian options. This is the menu I will be reviewing today. They also have a completely vegetarian menu as well as a Diabetic friendly menu as well!

The meals I will be reviewing today are 3 breakfast options, 3 lunch options, and 3 dinner options.

Turkey Burger, Pretzel Roll, Ketchup, Orange & Craisin Salad –

IMG_3277

First thing you think of when you hear Turkey burger is DRY, but not in this case. DTG has brought a good size, moist burger with a nice pretzel bun. The burger itself could use a touch more seasoning, but the burger eats well, and pairs with the pretzel bun very well. Great macro split here for a lunch/dinner.

Veggie & Cheese Omelet with Fire-Roasted Tomatoes

IMG_3275

IMG_3276

Absolutely mouth watering smell with this dish. The fire roasted tomatoes really give off such an inviting aroma. Great macros from someone that is following a low carb diet. The omelet was a bit watery and I felt needed some salt and pepper to help make it pop a bit more, but overall not to bad of a dish and plenty of veggies to go with.

Spinach Quesadilla, Black Bean & Mint Salad, Asparagus Spears – 

IMG_3270

What a combination for the bean salad! That was a new one for me, and something I am going to remember! Extremely refreshing, lite, good combo of flavors, but I felt like it was just missing that last little bit of pop to make it outstanding. Quesadilla was great size and loved the flavor combo, but needed to be slightly stronger in flavor.

Macaroni and Cheese, Carrot Coins, Broccoli –

IMG_3269

IMG_3272

My nephew was around when I was trying out a few meals and this was definitely his favorite! The little man just couldn’t put the fork down! Big tender shells smothered in a creamy cheese sauce, what’s not to love? Very surprised and pleased at the overall macros and the amount of protein that’s in the dish for it just being mac n cheese. The noodles were cooked perfectly, but I just felt the mac needed a bit more overall flavor increase. Still yummy though.

Chicken Pesto Salad, Whole Wheat Roll –

IMG_3210

I wish I would of got a picture of this! I thought I did, but I couldn’t find it so just trust me on this one when I say that the Pesto salad had great chunks of chicken, creamy, good size portion, good overall flavor, and not to strong of pesto flavor. Absolutely great cold salad. The roll was a touch sweet, but also just a touch dry, but I thought the roll and salad paired well together. This salad would also go great on toasted bread or with crackers!

Egg & Cheese Breakfast Sandwich, Tropical Fruit Salad –

IMG_3179IMG_3273I unfortunately I only got a picture of the fruit salad for this dish. The Egg sammy was a bit small in my opinion and needed more flavor. Overall flavor was a bit bland. The tropical salad on the other hand was delicious. Great mix of all the fruits you would expect to be in a tropical mix.

Breakfast Pizza and Spiced Apples – 

IMG_3164

One of my favorites! Hearty sized serving with good amount of toppings. Great and generous cheese coating. I heated my pizza in the oven which I would highly recommend to make this taste the best. I felt the crust could of gotten crispier, but it was very soft and fluffy texture, so not bad just was expecting something a bit crispier. Overall flavor wasn’t terrible but I thought a bit of Italian seasoning would do wonders here. Apples where delicious and a great pairing, the only issue I found was a few lingering apple cores on a few pieces that made for a bad mouth feel and had to spit it out.

Turkey Picadillo, Brown Rice Pilaf, Apricot Glazed Asparagus –

IMG_3159

This was my favorite dish! Great glaze and nice cook on the asparagus to start. The Turkey also had great flavor, abundant, and a good mix of meat, rice, beans, and extras. I felt this dish also had one of the best macro splits to be had. I would definitely eat this again.

Thai Turkey Tenderloin, Stir Fry Rice, Green Bean Medley –

IMG_3208

IMG_3209

The tenderloin had overall good flavor and spice to it. Tomatoes were plump and juicy, and the green beans were cooked well. They still had some of their crunch left to them, which is what I’m looking for. For me the rice had a little to much soy in it, and took over the other flavors inside the rice. I felt everything but the rice could of had a bit more salt to it.

Overall I really enjoyed the content I got from DTG and with a few minor seasonings they are doing a fantastic job at providing a well balanced, well portioned, macro friendly, quick, and convenient meals to people that are looking for an avenue to explore when they are short on time but want to get in quality nutrition.

Phoros Nutrition Protein Pancakes

IMG_1795

@phorosnutrition Protein pancake review.
.
1/2 cup svg – 220cal / 3f / 18c / 30p/ 2 fiber
.
.
First off, went to make 2 svgs as it directs a cup of water, but that was to much liquid so I had to add in another half svg to thicken it up. Good looking pancakes after cooked for the most part, but not extremely fluffy, and they cook fast. Definitely not a pancake I would eat plain, but with a good syrup it doesn’t taste bad. It’s a bit dry of a cake, that could be either from the oat Flour, or whey concentrate, and the cake itself could use a bit more base flavor. Macros for the cakes themselves are pretty solid, and similar to brands like @flapjacked , but these are slightly lower carb and higher protein. Yield for a batch is also pretty similar to competitors as well. 2-4 cakes per svg depending on size. Ingredient list is fairly short as only 6 things listed, so you know everything going in which is a plus. Worth mentioning that this blend is 0 sugar! .
.
Overall I gotta go with a 6/10. Macros are good, but taste needs improvement.

High Protein Chocolate Mousse

Dessert is usually the enemy when it comes to making things healthy, or the first thing to go when trying to cut off a few extra pounds. For me, that just doesn’t work. In the kitchen today I decided to whip up an extremely QUICK and extremely EASY Chocolate Mousse or the fancy name or pudding for those that don’t wanna eat classy haha. This mousse is not only HIGH PROTEIN, but its LOW FAT and LOW CARBS, so this chocolate dessert is a hard one to pass up on.

@fitjoynutritionRaspberry chocolate truffle review 
220 cal / 7f / 25c / 20 p
.
.
First thing to mention is the nice split of macros. Honestly roughly 5-8g of fat and 20-30g of carbs and protein is typically what I’m looking for in a bar. Very strong Raspberry aroma here but does has a artificial tinge to it. Bars dipped in chocolate then finished with a chocolate drizzle. Very soft texture to the touch. Soft when bitten in to and no real crunch factor. Few whey crisps but they get lost. Pretty much the only flavor I get in this bar is artificial Raspberry. I don’t have any chocolate flavors on the tongue at all. Trying the chocolate by itself was very meh. Unsweetened and didn’t offer much. Overall for me the artificial Raspberry is a bit to much for me. Takes over everything and lingers in your mouth. .
.
Overall 4.5/10. 
IMO the bar is edible is you absolutely need something and your friend says he’s got the hook up(which he clearly doesn’t) and lets you pick between this or @bpi_sports best bars(see previous reviews). .

Cheesecake 3 Ways, Bday/CnC/Smores

Cheesecake is the theme today! I am such a huge fan of cheesecake. Its rich, creamy, a nice cold treat on a hot summer day, and when made like this low fat and loaded with protein! That combo is a hard one to pass on, and I know I don’t let it pass! Today I have 3 very similar variations of cheesecake that are extremely simple, and quick to make!(well at least until it hits the oven!). Don’t worry if you don’t have everything you need as I’ve provided links to almost all of the ingredients for each recipe to help make this as easy as possible!
