A hit with the whole family!
These meals were such a gift. For our recent vacation I decided to free myself from the need to cook (two family members are gluten and lactose intolerant so eating out is usually not an option). My teenage boys and husband loved every meal. A true vacation! Thank you, Dianne for making such quality products available. Appreciate all that you do! Will definitely order again.
Convenient and delicious
Every meal I’ve tried has been top quality and delicious. I am very picky about the quality of meat in pre-packaged dinners and bb dinners have not disappointed. It’s so convenient to have them on hand for times when I don’t feel like cooking.
Easy & Delicious!!
Tastes great and healthy! Easy to prepare and does not feel like a frozen meal experience
The flavor and quality of these meals is top notch. The down side is the cost and size. We ordered two boxes since we moved during COVID19 and needed to be in quarantined. They were both convenient and delicious, but my husband almost fell out of his chair when I told him the cost per meal. They are enough for me, but for him they are a small serving.
Balanced Bites Wholesome Foods
Hi Alayna- Thanks for the review! I’m glad you enjoyed the meals. Please keep in mind (and note to your husband) that the price per meal is inclusive of FedEx 1-2 or 2-3 (in cool months) shipping. This is no small fee, but we factor it in for you so you don’t get sticker shock at the end of the order and then give it up. Our meals are also made by hand by real people paid living wages (with insurance), not by machines. So, this factors in to the cost as well. We think that for the amount of protein and amazing freshness and flavor, you’ll find the meals are actually comparable to takeout or delivery. I hope that helps! Diane :-)
