During the week we’ve been really trying to cook at home and it’s been working out well for how busy we’ve been and for our budget! That being said we needed a little change up and by we, I mean me. My sweet hubs would eat salmon and roasted veggies every night or be perfectly content making one of his chicken concoctions. I love that man!
Sadly for him, I cannot, but we were both excited to discover Citrus Kitchen. They make healthy meals with proteins and veggies and will even make you meals for the week. I love that they offer a couple of different kinds of seasonings for your proteins, a good selection of sauces, and a nice variety of sides. I also like that they are vegetarian friendly and offer tofu for those that don’t eat meat.
We had somewhat of an idea of what we wanted when we walked in, but our minds were totally changed upon sampling their adobo chicken. It was flavorful and saucy and reminded us of home cooking!
We went for the adobo chicken and cajun salmon for our proteins. Since we got meal versions of those we got to pick 2 sides to go with them. We chose butternut squash, garlic potatoes, couscous, and steamed veggies.
Once we got our meals we honestly couldn’t stop eating…I mean we barely said two words to each other while inhaling this meal. That’s a big deal for me! I can talk through basically anything!
The salmon was crispy and succulent and very well seasoned. My favorite side was the couscous and hubs enjoyed the squash. The stars of the meal were definitely the proteins and I can honestly say we will be back. These meals can be as light or as heavy as you need them to be and seem to work for whatever nutrient needs you may have.
I doubt we’ll do any meal prep stuff with them, but for a quick and nutrient dense meal out this would be a good spot!
After dinner we needed something sweet so we ended our night with Handel’s ice-cream. They have a Thursday special of $1.35 for a scoop so we were excited about that. I got a blueberry crumble and the hubs got a chocolate peanut butter something or other.
It was a successful night of eating to say the least!
Have you guys tried any meal prep places? What did you think?
