EatFirst prove a takeaway or ready meal doesn’t need to be unhealthy to be convenient…

A takeaway or ready meal used to be a real indulgence. A fat, gooey pizza dripping in cheese, fish and chips soaked in salt and vinegar, a Chinese loaded with oil and unhealthy sauces. But with healthy eating taking the forefront now, people have been wondering of a takeaway that combines convenience with health. Just because you don’t necessarily want the hassle of cooking, shouldn’t mean you have to pile on the pounds. And that is where EatFirst comes in.

The EatFirst menus are also ever changing.

At the moment some of the dishes include Spicy Flat Iron Steak, Miso Glazed Salmon, Grilled Baby Chicken, Teriyaki Tofu and Vegetable Udon Noodles.

The verdict

When we tried EatFirst we were impressed with the ease of it all. We didn’t quite realise just how simple it was to get food that was convenient, delicious and also good for you. It changed our preconception that to have a takeaway it has to be unhealthy. These meals are perfect if you have a busy day and want to come home to a yummy yet nutritious dinner without slogging over the cooker for hours.
