As I mentioned a few blog posts ago, my diet has had a bit of an overhaul of late. I am still gluten and dairy free but I was relying way too much on carbohydrates for substance- grabbing gluten free crisps or fruit on the go.
After going on my Nutritional Therapy course (which I’ve almost finished- hurrah!) I become much more aware of how crucial getting the protein balance is for balancing your blood sugar (which I do struggle with) and since I also recently discovered my gut was intolerant to lots of new things: potatoes, rice etc- I decided it was time to start looking at basing my meals more around meats, veg, fruit and some gluten free grains.
I started to a bit of research into sourcing the best quality meat and came across LiveLean; who not only do meat bundles but also do gluten free and paleo friendly bundles- they sent me their slimming hamper (since I prefer leaner meat) and I was honestly really impressed with the bundle- it contains…
- 24 chicken fillets (and one fillet is honestly enough for two! so you’re getting 48 really!) This is what real chicken should be like- it’s completely opened my eyes up to the amount of added water is pumped into supermarket chicken!
- grassfed rump steaks
- grassfed mincemeat
- paleo meatballs
- gluten and dairy free chicken sausages and burgers ! (Other than Heck Zesty Chicken Sausages/Burgers- which aren’t stocked in many places- it is almost impossible to find chicken sausages and burgers that are both gluten and dairy free so I was over the moon to find these!)
Everything comes refrigerated but you can of course freeze it and then use as necessary- given the sheer amount of meat you’re getting, it really is great value. The ingredients are completely natural with very little added to the meatballs and chicken burgers. It’s a bargain for any meateaters but if you are into sourcing good quality meat (no added water, nasties and grass fed) then I’d really recommend Live Lean- I know there’s a couple of meat bundle sites out there but this is the first I’ve seen that really offers a range of gluten free and grass fed and paleo friendly meat bundles without the extra cost that sourcing this type of meat seems to come with!
