There is actually a restaurant in Dallas that serves pre-portioned, packaged meals that you buy and microwave right there in the restaurant. It’s like the Lean Cuisine aisle at the grocery store, but not frozen. I’m not kidding.
Okay, so the restaurant was founded by a personal trainer whose clients wouldn’t or couldn’t follow his nutritional advice. That’s cool, actually: See a problem, do something about it. I can respect that.
So how is the execution? Well …
According to Alice Laussade on City of Ate — The Dallas Observer Food Blog:
But, hell. The meal program they’re selling promises to help you lose weight. It doesn’t promise you’ll want to actually eat their food. I threw away half of my small portion. Aaaaand now I see how the program works.
Yeah, I think I’ll stick to my meat, eggs and veggies, cooked from scratch in my own kitchen, thank-you-very-much.
