This month, I’ve been working with My Fit Foods to promote their Pay Fit Forward campaign. In September, you can go to a My Fit Foods location (they have over 50 locations in Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, California and Illinois to choose from) and when you purchase a meal, you can donate this meal to a friend or a local hunger-relief charity. You can read more about this campaign in my intro post I wrote a couple weeks ago: A Simple Solution for When You Just Don’t Have Time to Cook.
My sister, Leslie, came with me to the event. She just moved to Dallas for school and is always up for a free meal. She ended up inviting four of her occupational therapy grad school friends and they all had a great time! Lea from Running with Ollie gave us a great circuit workout that included partner exercises– using chairs and each other’s strength!

After the workout, we refueled with our choice of a My Fit Foods meal. I chose the flank steak with fresh green beans and mashed cauliflower. I loved the cauliflower– it tasted just like mashed potatoes! We had the opportunity to take one home as well, and I chose the pizza pasta dish.
While we were eating, we listened to a Q & A with Kim from Kim’s Cravings, and Leslie, a nutrition coach for My Fit Foods. Leslie was very knowledgeable about their various meals and even told us about a customer she had who had heart disease and improved his health by eating more fresh foods from her store rather than going through a fast food drive-through. Just shows, there are wonderful options to choose from when you skip the drive-through!
Most of their lunch and dinner options have less than 500mg of sodium. Their meals are between 300-600 calories, and all breakfast items have between 10-30g of protein. They even have gluten free options! All meals are made daily and refrigerated until you pick them up from the storefront.
