After trying so many Factor meals we have compiled a list of our favorites as well as some misses that we won’t be ordering again.  We know that everyone has unique tastes and recommend trying as many different Factor meals as you can as you might be surprised!

 

Factor Meals Favorites

  • Tostada Bake with cauliflower rice and sour cream.  The tostada was super flavorful with tons of delicious Mexican spices, grass-fed ground beef, and lots of cheese.  The low-carb cauliflower rice was a little bland and we recommend mixing it in with the tostada and sour cream.  The portion size was perfect for my husband and this was our favorite keto meal of the week.  The Factor menu changes regularly, so if they don’t have this exact meal, I would order any of the taco-related items.
  • Red Chile Chicken Enchilada –  The chicken was perfectly cooked, nice and juicy, with a wonderful grilled flavor.  The side of mixed peppers and onions was a wonderful compliment to the Mexican cauliflower rice and chicken.  This dish was more like a chicken fajita than an enchilada because it didn’t have a red sauce like I was expecting, but delicious just the same.

  • Ricotta Meatballs with a side of zoodles (zucchini noodles) and broccoli tasted fresh and not too heavy.  My son devoured the grass-fed beef and pasture-raised pork meatballs and even ate the roasted zoodles.  The marina sauce had a little spice kick and the broccoli, which didn’t get mushy in the microwave, were both lovely.
  • Creole Shrimp with Chicken Andouille Tomato Gravy & Wild Rice Pilaf-  This meal was really tasty and the shrimp, which were very large, didn’t dry out or turn rubbery in the microwave.  We loved the robust flavor of the tomato gravy and andouille sausage.
  • Fiery Beef & Black Bean Chili with cilantro sweet potatoes & corn salsa.  I am a huge chili fan and this meal did not disappoint!  I mixed the sweet potatoes and corn salsa in with the chili and enjoyed the warm spicy flavors.  This meal was very filling as well!

  • Spicy Sesame Ginger Chicken with scallion brown rice and roasted broccoli.  This meal was packed with flavor and not too spicy.  We loved the sesame ginger sauce on the chicken and rice.
  • Lemon Pancakes with Berry Compote and sausage-  Wow!  These were tasty and came with plenty of butter (maybe too much?).  The lemon pancakes were lightly sweetened and the berry compote paired well with both the pancakes and the sausage.  The sausage was everything you would expect from breakfast sausage and did not dry out or become tough in the microwave.

  • Spicy Peanut Grilled Chicken with satay sauce, cilantro quinoa, and gochugaru-roasted sweet potatoes.  This dish was so tasty!  The satay sauce is a rich, creamy peanut sauce with a tang that goes perfectly with the grilled chicken and cilantro quinoa.  The roasted sweet potatoes is where the spice comes into this dish as they pack a punch!
  • Vietnamese Pork and Veggie Stir-Fry with cilantro rice and Nam Jim Jaew Sauce.  This dish didn’t look that great, but it tasted wonderful.  We loved the jim jaew sauce as it gave this dish a bright, fresh flavor.  We would’ve loved more veggies or cauliflower rice, but the flavor of this dish can’t be beat!   Save $130 now with code MEALFIND130OFF >>

 

Factor Meal Misses

Chile-Braised Shredded Pork with Cabbage-Pepper Medley-  This meal was just ok and bland compared to many of the other Factor meals that we really enjoyed.  I added salt and pepper, but it still needed a little extra something.

Roasted Garlic Braised Beef with Ranch Mashed Potatoes, Broccoli, and Cauliflower-  This meal wasn’t bad, but it just didn’t have the bold flavors that many of the other Factor meals have.  We also thought that it needed salt and pepper.  We won’t be ordering this one again.

Side of Broccoli-  In general, we’ve found the steamed broccoli to be bland.  Salt and pepper help, but we recommend mixing them in with the main dish so that it soaks up all of the tasty sauce.

 

Factor Add-Ons: Keto Shakes and Cheesecake Review

BUT WAIT!  There’s dessert!

In the “Factor Add-Ons” section below the weekly meals, you can add on various healthy items, including this dessert, keto shakes, smoothies, proteins, sides, and more.

We’ve tried the keto cheesecake, vanilla and raspberry, as well as the chocolate keto shakes.

 

Factor Keto Cheesecake Review

I can’t tell you how much I LOVED this keto vanilla cheesecake.  I thought that we would receive an individual cheesecake, but this portion has 6 servings, enough for the whole week (if you have the willpower to not eat the whole thing)!

I can not believe this is low-carb (5 net carbs to be exact).  Factor uses vanilla and monk fruit sweetener with erythritol as a zero-calorie replacement for refined sugar.  This cheesecake has a wonderful creamy vanilla and cinnamon flavor, with a buttery almond crust, and is topped with toasted almonds for crunch.  Save $130 now with code MEALFIND130OFF >>

 

Factor Keto Shakes Review

Factor Chocolate Brownie Keto Shakes – This, like the dessert, is an add-on item.  We received 6 protein-packed shakes, made with a plant-based protein blend of coconut milk, MCT oil, cocoa powder, and monk fruit.

The price of 6 Factor Keto Shakes is $20.99.  You can choose all Chocolate Brownie, all Vanilla, or a variety pack with Chocolate Brownie and Vanilla.

Out of everything we tasted this was my least favorite due to the aftertaste.  A lot of sugar substitutes give me this type of aftertaste and I am hoping that Factor can rework the recipe.  My husband loved the shakes and did not get the same aftertaste as I did and really enjoyed the rich chocolatey taste.   Save $130 now with code MEALFIND130OFF >>

 

Factor Meals Reviews: Menu

spicy peanut grilled chicken-factor meal reviews-mealfinds

All of the Factor meals are made with high-quality, fresh ingredients and free of hormones, antibiotics, GMOs, refined sugars, and preservatives.  In addition,  all meats are pasture-raised and grass-fed and some of their produce is organic.

The menu features a variety of different meal options including keto, low carb, low-calorie, and plant-based. Factor dietitians and chefs work together to create meals that reflect the standards of each diet.

For example, keto meals are made with 70% fat or above and high protein meals are made with 35 grams of protein or more.

Factor Add-Ons:  Choose from the keto shakes, keto cheesecake, pressed juices, soups, granola, and more.  These healthy add-ons are sure to keep you fueled throughout your day.  Save $130 now with code MEALFIND130OFF >>

 

Factor Meals Reviews: Bottom Line

factor-reviews-ricotta-meatballs-factor healthy prepared meals reviews - mealfinds

Factor delivers freshly prepared meals to help you achieve your health and wellness goals directly to your door.

Factor meals are delivered weekly and heated in minutes which is not only convenient, saving you valuable time, but they are also nutritious, created by a team of in-house dietitians so that you can be sure you are eating exactly what you need to look and feel your best.

Our meals were packed with flavor and high-quality ingredients that you could not only taste but feel good about eating.  The serving size of most meals was good to large for an average woman and good to small for an average man, in my opinion.

We like that Factor offers meals for a variety of lifestyles, not just keto, and that all meals are free from hormones, antibiotics, GMOs, refined sugars, and preservatives.  Watch out for calorie counts, especially if you are on a diet that requires a calorie restriction.  And know that some menus will have a limited number of meals available each week, like Vegan.

Factor is a subscription, but ordering was a breeze, and managing our weekly orders is a snap online.  At between $11-$15 per meal, Factor is in the middle to the high end of the price range compared to other prepared meals we have tried, but when you factor in the high-quality ingredients and portion size we think that they are worth it especially if you are buying more to stock up and save.

TIP:  We especially loved the Tostada meal and would recommend ordering anything taco-related when it’s on the menu.  The keto vanilla cheesecake was DEVINE!  I could easily eat half of the tray in one sitting, so be warned.

Factor meals are great for anyone on a keto diet looking for an easy lunch or dinner option with no prep, busy adults looking for meals that are easy to heat and eat on nights when you don’t feel like cooking, and those who want prepared meals free from preservatives, hormones, etc.  Save $130 now with code MEALFIND130OFF >>
