In this episode of #YFRealTalk, YF fam member Daniel Fale tells us how he followed his heart to the Youfoodz fridge at his local stockist. Spoiler Alert: his lunches are now the envy of his workmates.
“I've been on board the Youfoodz train for about three months now.
For the first month or so, I bought meals from my local IGA before moving to online ordering. When I can't get my life together to place an order in time, I still run to IGA to stock up.
I originally decided to try Youfoodz to put some time back in my weekends. Every Sunday I was rushing back from the coast to do grocery shopping and lunch prep for the week ahead.
I started out by picking up five or so Youfoodz meals for work lunches, before deciding to do the same for dinner. I was finding it a bit of a squeeze to train at the gym after work, then come home and prepare dinner – especially if I was working late.
One awesome bonus was that I reduced a heap of food wastage by not having to throw out produce I'd bought and hadn't used (which was happening every week!)
The main thing I love about Youfoodz is the quality and freshness of their meals. I’ve tried ready-made meal companies in the past and have been a little underwhelmed by their frozen meals.
What blew me away from the start is the amount of flavour you can taste because all the Youfoodz meals are so FRESH! They’re also presented in a really appealing way; the cuts of meat and veg are always on point.
The only negative thing about Youfoodz is that, on an almost daily basis, I have colleagues sticking their noses into my meal because they've smelt it wafting through the kitchen and want to know what I've got for lunch!
They're always surprised it doesn't look like something from a 'standard meal-prep company', but more like something that's been cooked at home. I'm seeing more and more Youfoodz meals appearing in the fridge at work!
When you spot a workmate with Youfoodz in the kitchen, you can be sure there'll be banter about what they've ordered and a heated debate about which meal is the best.
I want to give a shout out to Ana who has delivered my last two Youfoodz orders. On both occasions, Ana has had a big smile on her face and is super friendly. To receive that level of consistent customer service is really refreshing.
Oh, and you’ll be happy to know I got my act together and placed an order last night!”
