Kettlebell Kitchen Helping With My Meal Prep

Kettlebell Kitchen saved our bacon a couple of times at the CrossFit Games. Their booth was a welcome respite from long lines at the food trucks, not to mention the presence of chicken breast, sweet potato, broccoli and kale!

Available at the show were their small-sized containers, with a medium-sized amount of food. Two different meals were on hand: Roasted Chicken Salad (435 calories, 34g protein, 12g fat, 48g carbs) and Tumeric Spiced Chicken (420 cal, 33g protein, 12g fat, 45g carbs).

Meant to be enjoyed cold, I found the Tumeric Chicken meal to be tasty and fresh. This one includes bacon, the spiced chicken of course, sweet potato and yucca crumbles.

Anne had the Roasted Chicken Salad; in addition to the chicken this selection is packed with white rice, kale, cranberries, celery and walnuts. Delicious!

Today for the first time I'll taste a Kettlebell Kitchen meal warm from a microwave. Looking forward to that. I'll let you know how it compares.

I don't have all the details on Kettlebell Kitchen's business model yet, but I'm impressed with the food quality and taste, and their vision to move beyond CrossFit boxes to corporate and individual customers. 

On our way out of Vendor Village at the Games, with only a two-hour drive ahead of us, we loaded up on a couple days of meals. Getting home late, with an early morning wake-up ahead, it's pretty damn nice to have a couple of days headstart on meal prep. Thanks, Kettlebell Kitchen!
