I can honestly say that I never thought I'd be reviewing an online meat delivery company, but look at me now! I didn't want to post this until we had tried a few things from the order, but having had Musclefood's veal on Friday, steak on Saturday and Corn-fed chicken on Sunday, I think we've got enough to report on. :)
I placed a rather large order with Musclefood after seeing loads of pictures all over Twitter, of the beautiful cuts of meat that people had received. We've been running our freezer down for the last few weeks, clearing out any freezer burnt meat and half-eaten bags of oven chips, ready to have enough room to accept the order.
In all honesty, although the web address probably appeals to many men, the name doesn't necessarily bring to mind a good quality butcher, nor the fact that they sell a wide range of products other than meat (including egg whites, nuts, oils, snacks and a variety of supplements), so I suspect some women might overlook it.
The website is pretty easy to navigate, with sections for any special offers, meats, dairy & eggs, nuts & grains, oils, snacks and supplements. Their bundled meat packs are rammed full of a variety of products and they have regular offers via email.
They offer free postage on orders over £75, with deliveries being available on Tuesdays -Saturday (you select your delivery date although there is a weekend supplement). Orders come packaged in cool, insulated packages which are fine out of the fridge for up to 72 hours.
It's also worth having a stack of freezer backs handy, as certainly the 2.5kg packs of chicken breasts, come as single packs and it may be more convenient for you to split them out into more suitable portions before freezing.
It took a while to figure it out, but this is the total of what we received - personally I think it was a huge amount for £110!!
24 (large) chicken breasts
5 chicken supremes
2 packs diced turkey breast
1 pack diced beef
6 pork loin steaks
4 rump steaks
1 ribeye steak
4 duck breasts
2 whole corn fed chicken
2 hache steaks
1 veal escalope
2 packs Southern grill seasoning
1 tub virgin coconut oil
As mentioned above, I've now tried the veal (beautifully tender and great flavour - very, very lean! - shown in the second picture above), the ribeye (again, great flavour and very little fat for a typically fatty cut - shown in the first picture) and we had one of the whole, corn-fed chickens for our Sunday roast (buttery and so much more flavourful than typical supermarket birds! - terrible picture to the left). I've also cooked a couple of the (massive) chicken breasts to supplement my snacking during the week! :) P was hugely impressed by the steak and chicken, so I think it's safe to say we will be ordering from them again once the freezer is a little emptier!

Workout-wise, I'm still off running as my feet still ache so over the weekend just had a quick 40 minute blitz over our local Common on the bike. Today was another 35 minutes on the stationary bike followed by time on the rowing machine. I really hope they get better so I can still do my first Parkrun over Easter!
Stationary Bike (moderate, 90+ rpm, L6-7) = 35 minutes
Rowing Machine (moderate speed, 32+ spm) = 6 mins
