We are enjoying trialling all of the different pre-prepared meals on the market – and Youfoodz is no exception!
I am always a bit time poor, especially with six kids at home and working multiple jobs. Meal prepping has always been difficult for me, it’s hard to find the time to shop for all the ingredients, then prep it all at home especially with the kids running around. I’ve always had good intentions, but it’s been hard to get around to it! That’s life! But there are options! I have seen Youfoodz at my local petrol station, the packaging looked nice and the meals looked pretty good. So, I thought I would give it a try.
Chances are, you’ve either eaten a Youfoodz meal or heard of them at least! They are pretty popular, with over 4,000 stockists Australia wide, as well as offering delivery to over 3000 locations.

Youfoodz Review: My review
I found the Youfoodz meals for $10.00 at my local petrol station. They had a pretty good range, with about 10 different meals. I purchased 3 to start with, just to try it out. Of course, the biggest question is, how does Youfoodz taste?
Youfoodz Taste Test: Creamy Garlic Chicken Kiev & Chips (My Favourite)
I went home after doing an F45 workout, with my meals in hand. The first meal that I tried was Creamy Garlic Chicken Kiev & Chips. Honestly, I was really impressed by this meal. Sometimes when you buy pre-packaged meals, when you heat them up, they end up looking all wet, sloppy, and gross. This meal didn’t – it looked fresh, like normal food! Youfoodz is brought frozen so I guess that helps keep the contents fresher. I was equally as impressed with the taste! Particularly the sweet potato chips! I know when I had this meal, I made a mental note to order it again because it was so good. It was worth the $10.00 because if I were to make that meal at home, it would have cost me more than $10.00 and also taken up my time preparing and cooking it as well.
Youfoodz Taste Test: Other Youfoodz Meals that I tried
This one was another one that I really liked. It had a nice homemade taste about it. It was yummy, filling, and looked great. I added some extra cheese on top once I had heated it up, for a little extra flavour. Side Note: I purchased this one the day before and froze it, and it still was fine.
Garlic Chicken & Creamy Potato:
This one I wasn’t a fan of. But I think that is just because of my taste buds. Once it was heated, it looks yummy! But there was something in the flavour that didn’t sit well with me. So, as any girlfriend would do, I handed it over to my partner to eat, which he happily did! He said it tasted yummy! So it was probably just me 🙂
Youfoodz Review: Overall
Overall, I really liked Youfoodz meals. Sadly, where I live I can’t have them delivered. This is a bummer because I could really see myself meal planning and using them on a regular basis! A trip to the petrol station to grab a few every now and then will do me. They are nicely packaged, fresh and when I pick the ones that suit my taste buds, they taste amazing!
