My Muscle Chef has been providing freshly prepared high protein meals to Australians since 2013. They’re one of the largest providers in Australia dedicated to gym-goers and fitness enthusiasts, with a focus on meals geared to weight loss, muscle gain or performance. You can build your own meal plan, purchase fixed sets of meals that are keto-friendly, vegan, low-carb or high-calorie, or subscribe to a set meal plan depending on your goals. MMC also stocks meals at selected petrol stations, Woolworth’s, IGA’s, FoodWorks, Harris Farms, Romeo’s, Drakes and Cornett’s stores across Australia.
You can order off the menu with individual meals (minimum 5 meals per order), or My Muscle Chef split their offering based on your health or order from a dedicated meal plan, including Calorie Control, Muscle Gain and Performance.
Once you’ve chosen your goal, you’ll tick your gender, average workouts per week and how many meals you want to purchase. You’ll then receive a customisable meal plan suited to your fitness goals, like below:
You can also order from a selection of MMC packs and bundles, like:
- High Calorie Best Sellers
- Low Carb Collection
- Keto Friendly Pack
- Vegan Booster Pack
Ingredients & Preparation
MM meals are made out of a Sydney facility with ethical and sustainable raw materials, like grass fed beef & lamb, sustainable Tasmanian salmon & sustainable Hoki from New Zealand, while 100% of vegetables are Australian & seasonally sourced to ensure best quality.
In terms of dietary requirements, My Muscle Chef does a good job of providing all the ingredient details on their website ahead of purchase. However, when ordering meal plans, it’s not possible to filter out allergens like gluten free or dairy free, but there is a filter available when ordering meals a la carte.
My Muscle Chef isn’t able to guarantee the absence of common allergens as all meals are prepared in bulk within a commercial kitchen.
