Simply Fit Meals was founded on the belief that food should simply be itself without hiding behind flavor-disguising sweeteners and preservatives. Meals portioned into 5K (250–450 calories) and 10K (450–600 calories, $2/meal extra) sizes help individuals stick to diet plans and doctor-recommended servings of the letter K. Organic whole-wheat silver-dollar Camp Gladiator Power pancakes ($4.75+) help diners break fasts with an infusion of bananas, walnuts, egg whites, organic flaxseed, and organic agave nectar. Huevos rancheros merge egg whites, lean turkey breast, and green chile tomatillo sauce with spicy black beans ($4.75), inundating diners with fresh spices and 38 grams of protein.
For lunch or dinner, the turkey mac 'n' cheese nestles lean ground turkey breast in a cheesy bed of whole-wheat pasta with low-fat mozzarella, greek yogurt, and non-fat cottage cheese ($6.50+). The baked tilapia and veggies combines seasoned fish with organic quinoa and fresh garden inhabitants to ransack the few chambers of the food pyramid left unplundered by avaricious archaeologists ($7+). Vegetarians can also partake in even-portioned eating with a greek salad and hummus ($7.50) or the chile real ($6.50), a roasted poblano pepper with black beans, brown rice, and low-fat cheese. In an effort to coordinate with in-season freshness, the menu rotates often, with the stately grace of a novelty bow tie.
A true stop-and-go destination, Simply Fit's actual store packs a high volume of food into a no-nonsense, fridge-lined interior, in which chefs work diligently to concoct new kinds of healthy takeout. Simply Fit's team lives to fulfill the health-conscious dreams in the bellies and minds of diners everywhere, except the one where you're naked and trapped in a gym with no doors. Calling ahead to make sure that desired foods are available is recommended.
