In this article, I review my recent experience of muscle food as a new customer – my experience with the good, the bad, along with a Great Deals made Easy rating. I also include a promotional code so you can get money off your first order.
About Muscle Food
In the competitive meal delivery market, from the likes of HelloFresh to Gousto to even recipe deliveries like SimplyCook, MuscleFood sits in the healthy eating ready meal delivery section. Muscle Food started out in Nottingham in 2013 and focused on the bodybuilding community initially. It has since expanded to wider appeal and now has over 2,000 products created to get you lean, help you lose weight and build muscle and eat healthier. Food ranges from meats, fish, vegetables to healthy pizzas, high protein ready meals, meal plans and more.
Does Muscle food offer free delivery?
The muscle food delivery was free for the first order, so all new customer promotions. However, under £75, their Premium Tracked Delivery with SMS alerts is £5.90. For orders over £75, our Premium Tracked Delivery with SMS alerts is just £1.
My experience of Muscle Food
A friend recommended Muscle Food as a way of eating healthily without the effort of cooking. Ideal for those working from home, without 30 minutes to cook a meal from scratch, for many this is a game-changer. The price, only £2.09 a meal plus free delivery for 10 meals, as a promotion. Usually, it is £29.99 for 2 weeks of lunches, so for 10 meals, it works out as £2.99 a meal which is good value. After ordering from the site, the food turned up well cooled (with ice packs), a vast range of food options and in secure boxes. Meals ranged from chicken teriyaki to chicken chilli and a Levi roots vegetarian meal. The majority of their food is free-range and top quality. In addition, the food took less than 8 minutes to cook in the microwave and was pleasantly tasty. One of my favourites meals was the Levi Roots Sunshine Chicken Pot and was only 387 kcal. The only area of improvement was that the rice was a little chewier than my usual preference than typically boiled price but definitely edible.
Muscle food cooking instructions
You can buy a range of foods from Muscle Food i.e. BBQ meat food for cooking. My option was for Muscle food ready meals, microwaveable. The instructions were very simple, after taking off the plastic sheet, it was placed in the microwave for under 8 minutes of recommended time.
Good things about Muscle Food
-The ready meals are healthy with only 275 – 500 calories and offer high protein
-Cost is only approx £2.09 a pot
-Takes under 8 minutes to microwave the ready meals
-Microwaveable, so minimal fuss
-You can cancel any time
-Clean ingredients that are fresh
-Freezable if you over order or are out during the week
-Great Taste, the microwaveable food had a surprisingly good taste.
-All the pots are recyclable
-UK-wide 7 days a week delivery
Not so good things about Muscle Food
-Muscle Food doesn’t educate you when it comes to preparing your own healthy meals like Gousto or HelloFresh does
-The ready Muscle Food programme requires time and effort to see results, like any nutrition plan
-it is not very convenient for those who have days away from the home or the office
-The meals are very meat-based, there are vegan options, but mostly focused on the meat side of things!
-Microwaved rice doesn’t have the texture/taste of boiled rice (in my opinion).

Review of Muscle Food – Great Deals Made Easy Rating
My final thoughts are this a perfect solution for those who are time poor or not eager cooks, but want to keep healthy and not survive on solely takeaways. Muscle Food provides top quality food, including free range meats and all the meal prep, taken care of. I’d recommend trying it for a few weeks to see if MuscleFoods are for you. Overall the Great Deals Made Easy rating is 7.5/10.
