Happy Friday Night In,
How did Easy Eating come about?
Funny enough Easy Eating was started from a place of passion and frustration – I was looking for a CLEAN wholefood company and simply couldn’t find anyone that really understood those 2 core concepts so figured why not provide a service that suits me, and hope there are others out there also haha
The most rewarding part of your job?
Most rewarding part would have to be the feedback from customers. We constantly received messages and emails about how good people feel after eating our meals and couldn’t believe the results from clean eating. Keeps us going and helps on those early morning starts :)
What haven’t you done yet that you wish you could?
Hmm there is a quite a bit actually! But il stick to drive a race car as that was my first thought :)
Favourite place in the world?
Would have to be a small greek island, Kalymnos. It is a very low key island without major tourism and just gives you the feeling nothing has changed in many years – in a good way :)
If you were a spice, which would you be?
Hmm…I would be Turmeric! Because is awesome and leaves its mark on everything haha
5 things you can’t live without?
Family/friends, google, our farm, food and WATER :)
If you could choose to eat anything in the world for your next meal, what would it be?
This little restaurant in IOS (Greece) – their specialty of slow roasted lamb with potatoes – the meat was just so soft and melted in your mouth (and not from MSG haha)! I don’t know what the place is called although I remember how to get there :)
What was for breakfast?
This morning I ran out the door! Handful of almonds, a banana and a glass of water
How would you classify your eating style?
Clean whole food at random times of the day
Try to maintain a vegan diet Monday – Friday
Your favourite way to stay active?
I like to mix it up between boxing, sprints, long relaxing walks and basketball
What’s your favourite dish on the menu?
Lamb, always lamb :)
Your best advice for living a wholesome, healthy lifestyle?
Respect your body – it’s the only one you have.

At first glance, you may think they've done a dodgy and left out half your meal. But that's part of why these guys are so great. You see, they've cleverly calculated and portioned out the amount of food for the average persons needs. Though in saying that, the prawn salad didn't fill me up - so order the prawns with veggies and/or brown rice instead of salad :) I also topped the veggie portion with extra greens occasionally to help if I was still a little peckish.
Despite that, if you need more or less calories/protein depending on your nutrition and fitness goals - you can tailor your meals to have 100g or 200g of protein, and carbs or vege, or both. If their current meal plans don't work for you, then you call them up and have a meal plan customised exactly to what you're after using their food! No other service I know is that flexible! How much easier can it get? If you don't want a meal plan, no problem, just order the exact number of meals you want and choose your delivery day - Tuesday or Thursday. Simple!
There's plenty of protein options to choose from too. Prawns, meatballs, beef, chicken, salmon, lentils, lamb, falafels….all deliciously seasoned but not overdone. The coconut quinoa is packed full of flavour too! Definitely a favourite of mine.
I recommend giving them a go if you're in their delivery areas as they offer a great service for a fair price. Most meals range between $9.99-$11.99. They also offer some breakfast options and snacks including muffins and a raw food bar. The bar is so chocolately it seriously satisfies a chocolate craving!
Let me know if you give them a go! And nope, this is not a sponsored post :)
