As a personal trainer, food is very important to me. I try to eat clean as much as possible but training clients back-to-back for 5 hours straight, I’m tempted to eat anything that’s quick. Sunday is usually my meal preparation day, but sometimes it can also be a makeup day for clients if they missed a workout during the week. When I’m unable to do my food prep, panic sets in and I need to find a healthy alternative.
There are so many companies that sell prepared meals that you can get lost for days trying to find the right one. Personally, I always look for healthy ingredients and taste, while most Personal Trainers probably look for food that’s quick and convenient. In my exhaustive searches, I found this company called Clean Planet Foods that seems to cover all the bases for my protein needs.
Because meat takes a lot longer to cook than any other food, Clean Planet only provides meat instead of a full meal which I think its genius. Clean Planet Foods delivers with their high-tech packaging, the food to your door refrigerated not frozen, and can be heated and ready to eat in 2 minutes or less. According to Clean Planet, I can heat the meat with the plastic still wrapped on the outside which cuts down on my clean-up time: “Over 400 rigorous, independent scientific studies prove that, unlike other types of film, our pouch imparts nothing to the food that’s microwaved in it”.
I’m a picky eater so to me it tastes good but not great. However, for the purpose that I want to use it for, it’s awesome. After delivery it lasts about a month in your refrigerator and can be utilized for any meals or as a stand-alone in case of emergencies.
If your life is always on the run, or a busy personal trainer like me, this food is exactly what you want. They will go fully organic next year, and will also supply grass- fed beef. That is very exciting to me and I can’t wait. I would recommend Clean Planet Foods if you are looking for a healthy and convenient protein source.
