Review: CORE Foods
I enjoyed these and appreciated having a compact full meal that was ready to go. I read the instructions that said to drink 2 full glasses of water while you water and that is a must. You need to drink the water to help wash it down otherwise it will stick to your mouth and teeth, but I thought it was perfect to get me to drink 16 oz. of water right away in the morning. One of these meals is equal to a bowl of oatmeal and the meal weighs 3 oz.
Since I have been eating as clean as possible, as much as possible, I have am most concerned with a couple nutritional facts and that is the fiber and protein content. In one of the meals the protein content is 11g and the dietary fiber content is 6g, both of which are good for a meal. If you are concerned about fat content, you will be less impressed because these meals all contain nuts and flax, but those are good fats!
I also appreciate that these meals last up to 6 months frozen, 2 months in the fridge and 1 week on the go. You can eat them at room temp or from the fridge. If they are frozen, you just need to unwrap and un-thaw for 10-15 minutes and it will be ready to eat. I used my 3 meals from frozen and tossed them in my gym bag and brought along to eat after my training.
