Meal Delivery 


December is the busiest, craziest and the most stressful time of the year. With the stresses of work
deadlines coming to a head, kids finishing school, friends and family coming to stay and Christmas
shopping often left to the very last minute. It's no wonder we all seem to pack on the kg's with quick
take away and unhealthy meal options just to get us through.

Here's an idea! Order yourself and your family fresh, healthy, easy and quick to prepare meals from
Thomas Farms Kitchen delivered straight to your door so you don't have to navigate your trolley
through the busy supermarket isles or wait in line to scan and pay!

You meal delivery comes delivered to your door in a poly styrene box sealed fresh for up to 8 hours
before needing to be refrigerated as frozen ice packs are also included just in case you aren't home
when your delivery arrives.

Fresh locally sourced ingredients come all measured out, labeled and ready to use for each meal!
(FYI - Below are the ingredients I received for 12 meals.)

Thomas Farms Kitchen offer super affordable meal plans. You pick what you like to eat and all of the
ingredients get measured out for you and delivered fresh and ready to cook all in about 15-20mins!

For a non cook like me, even I can follow the easy to follow, simple cooking instruction guide
included with each meal. Got me feeling like a Masterchef in no time!
(Just see my fancy plating in the images to follow down the page!)

I received three of each of the following meals below.

Family Pleaser Chicken Salad w/Chinese Sesame Dressing!
This dairy free option was great for me because lately I have been getting really bad stomach
cramping whenever I consume milk. I have also put on about 7 or 8 kg's over the past few months
which I am desperately trying to shift! I am not sure why this has happened, I do have thyroid issues
so that may have something to do with it and I am due to get my levels tested again, so I really must
do that soon since the sudden shift in my weight might have something to do with it.

Anyway - This meal was SO yum! Probably my second favourite with the salmon below coming in
first by just a smidge! The chicken provided was already sliced into strips which I was stoked about
because one of the worst parts about cooking apart from crying from slicing onions in my opinion is
slicing up raw meat. Makes my stomach churn! This was great as all the fat had been removed and all
I had to do was throw it into the fry pan. Nothing raw touched my hands. Phew!

With only 19.3g of fat per serving I felt good cleaning up this plate down to the last drop of delicious
mouth watering dressing!

Succulent Salmon w/Cucumber, Dill & Yoghurt Dressing!
Salmon is my favourite seafood and really with my short term memory being so embarrassingly
terrible, I don't know why I don't eat more of this mega brain food! This portion size was perfect for
me. I don't like to eat overly huge meals at a time and I loved having the crispy skinned salmon
along side with a cool fresh salad.

This was my favourite meal from the 3 I tried and highly recommend it if you decided to give
Thomas Farms a go. So far I have enjoyed this as both a lunch and dinner meal option and it's just really great well balanced light food which is also gluten free for those who are wondering if there
are specific meal options available for you, there are quite a few - including vegetarian!

With the fat content of this meal being just 16.5g per serve, it gives me another reason to call it my
fav! It's just YUM and literally took me only about 10 minutes to throw it all together.

Lovely Lamb Kebabs w/Tomato, Cucumber & Chickpea Salad!
I am not a huge fan of red meats and I rarely ever eat lamb. It gives me the major guilts when I think
of eating a baby animal, however this was super lean and tasty! It wasn't until my cheeky hubster just
 had to mention it as I was munching away just to tease me, it hadn't even crossed my mind.
(Don't worry I got him back for that!)

I don't particularly like chickpeas, but honestly when you mix it in with the goats fetta, tomato, red 
onion and cucumber it tastes oh so much better! The seasoning on the lamb has about a million
different succulent flavours mixed all together which creates the most amazing party in your mouth
I would totally recommend getting this dish to try for your family if you happily eat meat!

This meal's fat content in case you were wondering sits at 21.4g per serve. Higher than the other two, 
but still quite low for a hearty meal.

Thomas Farms Kitchen offers meal options for vegetarians as well as those who are gluten intolerant. Choose a plan for just yourself, if you're a couple or family. They make the whole ordering 
process to simple, easy and fun! Choose exactly what you want and see how the meal looks once prepared with the meal images on their website.
