Tonight Brian and I went to a “Meet and Greet” event for the local health conscious meal service, Clean Eats. Clean Eats offers a weekly changing menu of five different salads and five different entrees. The salads contain a protein with fresh vegetables and a delicious homemade dressing. The entrees include a protein, complex carbohydrates, and fresh vegetables. The meals are a mix of Asian inspired flavors such as curry or larb (Lao minced meat salad) and familiar American flavors including pastas and stews, see this week’s menu here. Recently they started incorporating a vegetarian option to their weekly menu as well. The salads are $6 each and the entrees are $8 each. You can pay a one time nominal membership fee of $50 and then you get a $1 off each meal.
I have ordered from Clean Eats for six months now. It is so convenient to have portion controlled meals that are less than 500 calories but are also nutrient dense. The ingredients are always fresh and organic when available. What I love most about these meals are the flavor, I am not being short-changed by eating healthy. The meals are delicious with a lot of variety to choose from to keep my palate interested. I like having the flexibility of being able to order as many meals that I need for the upcoming week to keep me reaching my fitness goals. I can work out a lot but if I don’t change my eating habits, my body will not tone up.
The event was held at Siam Thai Cuisine in Seattle with hosted full bar and appetizers served. They gave out brand filled schwag bags and logo t-shirts. There were three raffle giveaway drawings for $100 gift certificate to Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse, Beats wireless headphones, and the grand prize of $500 worth of meals from Clean Eats. I tried to muster all my good luck juju but sadly did not win anything. It was a fun filled evening hanging out with friends and meeting new folks that are on this health food kick as well. We all shared a cheat meal together tonight. I especially loved the macarons.
