Iron Office Nutrition is a local Cincinnati startup from local guys that focus on nutrition and amazing food. Kevin is a chef that graduated from MCI, Tyler is from Miamisburg and has worked in restaurant marketing, Maria has a BS in Dietetics from UC and Lillian is a professional chef.
They’ve put together this great concept where you order meals online, they prepare them fresh and deliver them to you on Monday mornings! They focus on lean proteins, complex carbs and vitamin rich vegetables. They pride themselves that everything is:
- Fresh, not frozen
- Local whenever possible
- Preservative free
- Prepared in house
You can do meals in a package of breakfast & lunch or lunch & dinner which is definitely a better deal financially and still gives you a good deal of flexibility – or you can select your individual meals. I chose a breakfast & lunch package the first week for $90 and then did a choose your own the second week.
Then meals are delivered to you on Sunday (or Monday) for a nominal $6 charge. I had them delivered on Mondays since I was using them for work. Tyler popped by and brought my meals all packaged up in a branded reusable bag. Each has microwave instructions and full nutrition info.
But here’s the real question – HOW DID THEY TASTE?????
I also had some breakfast meals like this Steak & Eggs. I will say – I’m a medium rare girl on steak and when you microwave steak it gets too well done. Their meals also like garlic – a lot! So if you’re not a fan – I would make a note to them. All in all – this one was good and well seasoned.
All in all – Iron Office Nutrition is such a great option if you’re wanting to have healthy meals but don’t have the time to prep them. The cost per meal if you don’t do a package is comparable to a restaurant meal – but this has the convenience of being delivered to you and freshly prepared with no preservatives or extra junk you don’t need.
I hope you’ll give them a try! Tyler was really helpful and answered all of my questions and the meals were healthy, nutritious and delicious! I will definitely be using Iron Office Nutrition in the future!
