My Food Bag : Review

Give me a new way to streamline the working week and I'll jump on it. Especially when it comes to meals. I don't know many people that wouldn't agree, especially when you are juggling work and a busy family. 

Enter My Food Bag  - A food delivery service, helping remove the hassle around planning meals. With a strong focus on fresh seasonal wholesome ingredients, the service offers a range of meal plans to cater to singles, couples and families. 

The recipes are designed by Head Chef and Dietician Nadia, and are easy-to-follow, use quality ingredients and are packed full of delicious flavours.  

There are six different food bags which cater for singles, couples and families.






Recipes and folder


Eating Seasonally


The meals are seasonally focused, which means better choice and quality of the produce available. By doing this Nadia and her team are able to create recipes that avoid using imported produce that has sat around for months in cold storage. 


Fresh ingredients delivered to our door
Recipes typically take between 20-45 minutes and don’t require fancy equipment. Recipe cards and a folder are included and give clear instructions on how to prepare and cook your meal.

What we tried

My Family Food Bag = 5 Main Meals - Feeds 2 adults and 2 children.

Firstly, everything we tried was delicious. All ingredients were fresh and of excellent quality. And portions were also spot on. I LOVED the fact that they also deliver on a Sunday as I have previously found week day deliveries can be tricky.


Here's what we tasted:



Asian Baked Salmon Parcels w/ Mash & Greens



This was by far my favourite meal - A good dose of healthy fats, protein, buttered mash and blanched greens.

Mild Indian Chicken w/ Vegetable Rice and Carrot Salad


I was surprised by this one, it was nice and easy to prepare, the flavours worked well,  and we felt like we were getting a decent amount of vegetables with our dinner. I even took some to work the next day for lunch. I loved the raw carrot salad with a touch of honey and olive oil. I was skeptical but have since made it again. Yum. 

Lamb Meatballs w/ Tomato Sauce & Risoni


We are huge lamb fans at our house so this was quite popular. I didn't have the risoni but Pete and the little one demolished it. There was enough for his lunch the next day too.

Peppered Steak w/ Hand Cut Sweet Potato Chips, Garlic Greens & Bernaise Sauce


Yum is all that needs to be said about this meal. A great balance of protein, vegetables and healthy carbs. Deeelicious. The beef was tender and full of flavour too.

Bacon, Cherry Tomato, Avocado & Cheese Quesadillas


This one was probably the least popular of the dishes this week largely due to the high carbohydrate factor. The salad was fresh and very much welcome and the bacon and red onion combination was super tasty.


I can highly recommend My Food Bag. Check out their great range of meal options by visiting their website.
