OUR WEEK OF HRX LIGHT MEALS


For this review, we tried a one-week subscription of HRX Light Non-Veg dinners. The description of HRX light reads: “Walk 10,000 steps a day? Lead a fairly active lifestyle? Try the HRX Light meal pack that will help keep you energized and poised for fitness. We’ve handpicked performance ingredients like chicken, lentils and nuts to supercharge your day.” 

 

DAY 1: 

Sri Lankan Chicken Curry

INGREDIENTS: Chicken in a curry sauce, side salad, brown rice

NUTRITIONAL INFO: 542 Calories, 31g of protein, 28g of fat, 14g of fiber and 52g of carbs

I am a long- time fan of Eat.Fit for light, healthy office lunches so I jumped on the opportunity to review them for a week. I live just behind the newly opened Eat Fit restaurant on 12th Main, so I assumed delivery would be seamless and fast. I was wrong. The first day, Monday, I didn’t receive the food and for the rest of the week it was a pain- phone calls, navigating and delays. However, they did make up for it to a certain extent by sending an extra meal on Day 6.

Back to food: the curry was lovely! It is a large portion and quite filling, so I had enough for lunch the next day as well. The chicken is very tender and not bland at all, which is always my issue with healthy meals. The curry is not too spicy but it does have a depth of flavor. I like how Eat.Fit always adds a small side salad a small superfood pot to really round off the meal.

 

DAY 2:

Light Egg Masala and Roti

INGREDIENTS: Eggs, curry, roti, side salad

NUTRITIONAL INFO: 590 calories, 35g of protein, 22g of fat, 17g fiber and 62g of carbs

I was sooo excited for this! I love egg curry! It was nice, but it could definitely use a bit more heat. The gravy was very thick, perfect for soaking it up with the roti. The roti was soft and fluffy. The small green side salad didn’t necessarily add much to the dish, but it cut nicely through the richness of the gravy. All in all, a very satisfying Indian dinner minus the guilt and the heaviness. This is the only meal I transferred to a bowl, it is a bit messy to eat curry from a plastic container.

 

DAY 3:

Chicken Patty and Tomato Relish

INGREDIENTS: Chicken, tomato-based gravy, small Mediterranean salad, mixed fruit salad

NUTRITIONAL INFO: 509 calories, 34g of protein, 19g of fat, 13g of fiber and 46g of carbs

Nigella Lawson and I have one thing in common: we are both fans of brown foods. It might not be too photogenic but it is homely and usually packs a ton of flavor. Most of my Cult.Fit meals were not Instagrambale but hit the spot. This I actually kept for lunch the next day and it made for great desks eat. Patties were soft but not too crumbly and the relish complimented them nicely. I liked the addition of a fruit salad, it helps with the sugar craving I always get around 3 PM. I was, however, hungry very soon afterward.

 

 

DAY 4: 

Arrabiata-stuffed Chicken Meal

INGREDIENTS: Stuffed chicken breast, lime rice, carrot salad and a mixed corn salad

NUTRITIONAL INFO: 385 calories, 31g of protein, 12g of fat, 10g of fiber and 37g of carbs

Chicken again!! This is why I never stick too long with meal subscriptions- there is a ton of ways to eat healthy that don’t involve chicken. This was also the lightest meal calorie-wise so much better for dinner. The chicken was tender and not dried out (I still shared it with my husband because No. More. Chicken). Yay for lime rice, my South Indian heart was very happy. Salads this time actually made sense with the dish and I happily ate them both. I have to say that at this point everything started to taste pretty similar and I would have liked to see more of a range in spice use.

 

DAY 5:

Jamaican Chicken and Millet Meal

INGREDIENTS: Chicken, vegetable curry, millet, and a small side salad

NUTRITIONAL INFO: 513 calories, 38g of protein, 14g of fat, 17g of fiber and 52g of carbs

I am sensing a theme with the protein here… But to be fair this was a very tasty chicken. I am not a fan of millet so I warmed up some chapaties to dip into the curry. The gravy was not as thick as some of the other ones I had, which wasn’t a bad thing for dinner. Like the Sri Lankan curry, I found this to be a heavier meal and finished it for lunch the next day. I am a fan of curries but four out of five days was a bit much.

 


OVERALL THOUGHTS


The delivery was an issue. My house is not too hard to find and it is a three-minute walk from the Eat.Fit restaurant, so I don’t understand why it was such a pain every day. However, the food was always warm and fresh and the delivery guys were always very nice. I like Eat.Fit, especially the fact that they have plenty of menus and healthy eating options, but to eat just HRX Light for a week got a bit one note. I will definitely keep ordering my lunches from them, but I will continue to switch between different programs for variety. The gravies were always very nice and the chicken was never dry, but I would have liked everything just a bit hotter. Some of the dishes were a bit heavier so I got two meals out of them- I do prefer my dinner a bit lighter. However, the patties and the egg curry I could have again and again and again. I rate it a very solid 6 out of 10, with a point taken down because of the hassle with delivery.
