As a twenty-something career man I like nothing more than convenience and the glorious rise of ecommerce in recent years has been as welcome as a taxi driver not trying to rip you off at 3am on a Sunday morning.
Now the idea of having meat delivered to your door might sound somewhat Dickensian but the concept has been around for years now through Ocado, Tesco et al.
But it was when MuscleFood got in contact with GymTalk about doing some reviews that I really started to pay attention.
MuscleFood, by its own admission, is a UK supplier of “premium nutrition for peak performance”.
By juggling responsibly sourced meat with no additives, added water or salt – in addition to providing rock bottom prices – MuscleFood has really taken the UK sports nutrition market by storm.
So much so that some of their meats are also used in Jamie Oliver’s London restaurant – but not Jamie’s Italian restaurants, which are terrible.
I’ll also drip feed bits of information about MuscleFood for those too slovenly to look for themselves.
NB: if you like this MuscleFood review and decide to buy some of their products, don’t come complaining if you don’t like the taste of their food, it’ll be your ropey cooking that’s to blame and not the quality of the products!
So, chicken, every bodybuilder’s favourite.
MuscleFood sent me one whole chicken and a 5kg pack of premium chicken breasts fillets, all of which add up to the frankly ridiculously low price of £31!
The chicken breasts come in at £25 and the whole chicken is priced at £6.
A quick look in my local Tesco tells me you can buy 450g packs of chicken breasts for £3.33 (on a 3 for £10 offer).
Therefore buying the same quantity from the supermarket would cost around £37.
Frankly, I should just end the review now and you go order.
Go on, off you go!
An addendum – if you’d like to correct my maths here, please fuck off.
The cynics will no doubt start to question the quality of such a vast quantity of meat at a fantastic price but as I’ve already mentioned, MuscleFood insist on a high quality, British, outdoor-reared produce.
Top guys, top products.
Nutritional breakdown (per serving):
First off, these breasts are bloody massive.
No wonder they’re MuscleFood’s bestselling product!
Each one weighs in at a meaty (pun intended) 200g plus, which is pretty much double what you’d get from a supermarket.
They’re so large, in fact, it’s as if MuscleFood are feeding their chickens MuscleFood products.
(They don’t, that would be barbaric.)
Each breast fillet gives you a rather generous 204kcal, 44.8g of protein and only 2.2g of fat, of which 1/3 is saturated, which is perfect for those looking to boost lean muscle growth.
A 5kg pack of MuscleFood premium chicken breast fillets should last you around one month, but that’ll obviously depend on how much you plan on eating.
But no matter how long it lasts, as mentioned above, this product is much better value than a supermarket brand.
In addition, the chicken breasts do not shrink when cooked, which is often a problem when buying chicken on the cheap from your local supermarket.
Nutritional breakdown (per serving):
The whole chicken, weighing in at approximately 1.2kg, is probably more of a Sunday treat rather than an everyday product.
Unless you’re Hafþór Björnsson, in which case you’ll need more.
As expected, per 100g there is a lower quantity of protein and higher fat quantity.
Obviously you can negate the latter by not eating the skin, but that’s the nicest bit, right?
So there we have it.
Suffering from post-Christmas lethargy and feeling bloated?
