You know that feeling when you’re eat something delicious and then you feel guilty for eating it? Well, now you can literally have your cake and eat it too with Personal Prep! Personal Prep is a local, healthy food-prep company that can work with any diet! Not only are the meals incredibly delicious and healthy, but they are also hearty and filling.
When Sophia, the owner of Personal Prep, asked me to do a review of her offerings, she gave me very simple and easy instructions on what to do. All I had to do was go to the Facebook page and give it a “like.” Every Wednesday morning, a new menu is posted, covering all the bases: breakfast, lunch, and dinner. When you decide what looks great, you simply shoot them a private message with your order and your email address. Orders just have to be received by Thursday night. It’s that easy!! No driving to the grocery store, no trying to find a parking spots, and no waiting in line. You can order right from your phone and pick it up at a local designated location (Pak’s Karate, Pro Body Fitness, Xcstasy Fitness, or Crossfit Conroe).
When I went to the Personal Perp page to pick my meals, I was surprised at the variety of choices and the fact that everything could easily be made low carb if I wanted. I ended up getting the Texan Scramble for breakfast: breakfast sausage, jalapeño sausage, diced sweet potatoes, and fresh spinach all scrambled with farm fresh eggs. For my other two meals, I ordered the BBQ Tater and the Shepherd’s Pie- both of which I ended up sharing with my 8 year old daughter (and y’all, when an 8 year old gets mad at you for taking the last bite, you know its good)!
The BBQ Tater was a baked sweet potato stuffed with BBQ chicken and jalapeño sausage; and yes ,my child ate it and said nothing about it being too spicy. Her response was “Ohhhh this is absolutely AMAZING!” And believe me this child lives on Mac and cheese and refuses to try anything else.
Next on our plate was the Shepherd’s Pie, which was a slight twist on the classic with garlic mashed sweet potatoes on top of ground turkey and mix veggies sautéed in a mushroom gravy (gluten free almond meal). This meal, I believe, hit my soul just a little bit. The favors were unbelievably and I actually didn’t even know the ground meat was turkey until after I had it. It was one of those meals where I couldn’t put my fork down and I didn’t care because it was healthy and under 500 calories!
Yup, that’s right all the meals made my Personal Prep are 300-500 calories plus they’re all made from scratch and gluten free. You think that’s all they offer? Not even. Personal Prep can also have individual consultations with you and help plan out meals that will fit your specific diet and personal needs at a very affordable price. You’re probably thinking: (1) convenience by ordering on my phone, (2) super healthy that (3) tastes really good, these meals must be really expensive! Not at all! You can order a single meal for $9.50 or order in bulk (15) for $7.50 each! Think about it, that’s 3 meals a day for 5 days at $112.50! I don’t know about you, but I spend way more than that at the grocery for 5 days’ worth of meals and let’s not even start with fast food and the other junk we put into our bodies.
I think it’s safe to say that if you want the convenience of ordering yummy meals that are already made for you, then Personal Prep is the way to go! Be sure to like their Facebook and Instagram pages for up to date meals and yummy food pictures.
