Learn how *FUEL line ignites the foodie in all of us
The wait is over! Good Measure Meals has officially revealed the *FUEL meal line, a collection of gourmet dishes perfectly crafted to meet the needs of the active foodie.
Recently, the GMM team invited some of their most loyal customers from the community including Atlanta Track Club members and Atlanta-based bloggers to sample three new menu items each paired with specialty wines. The Volunteer Services room was turned into a beautiful dining area, complete with herb-filled Mason jars as centerpieces for the tasting. As guests began to get seated, GMM Senior Vice President Jess Parsons explained the concept of *FUEL while introducing the team that helped make it all happen.
Before we talk more about the tasting, you’re probably wondering what makes *FUEL so different, anyway? The *FUEL line, unlike other current GMM meal plans, has been designed to meet specific nutrient requirements for active individuals, featuring higher protein and lower carbohydrate dishes, all while remaining within healthy macronutrient ranges. As always, you can rest assure knowing that your GMM Registered Dietitian Nutritionists have guaranteed nutritional adequacy while working diligently to develop unique flavor profiles alongside GMM executive chef, Justin Wills. The line also features organic and locally grown items as available.
As a food blogger myself, I really do appreciate the presentation of meals. We all know that we eat with our eyes first. Well, let me tell you how impressed I was with each dish that was placed in front of me. We’re talking restaurant quality, yall. Don’t just take my word for it. Check out the photos below!
So the presentation was awesome, but how did it all taste? Short answer: amazing. Long answer: continue reading.
We started by tasting the power salad bowl featuring wild-caught salmon, paired with Setzer Winery’s Gruner Veltliner. The base of the bowl consisted of fresh spinach and quinoa, topped with cherry tomatoes and a generous six-ounce piece of salmon with a creamy Goddess dressing that I could not get enough of! The freshness of the salmon, combined with the bright flavors of the herb dressing, made this salad a total hit.
The second course was the almond crusted chicken paired with Montinore Estate’s Organic Pinot Noir. This one was my personal favorite. The chicken was so moist and flavorful and could be so versatile. Have leftovers? Top your favorite salad with the almond crusted chicken for a delicious protein-packed lunch. Trust me, I know from experience… because I definitely did this. 🙂
The third and final course, black pepper flank steak and farroto paired with Zorzal’s Cabernet Sauvignon/Malbec Blend, was definitely the most decadent of all. The steak was tender and juicy, while the farrotto, a farro-based risotto, was so incredibly unique. The nuttiness from the farro paired with the creamy risotto texture was unlike anything I’ve eaten before. A must-try for any foodie!
What I love most about the *FUEL line is that it can ignite the foodie in all of us. In fact, it was specifically designed for the food lover that doesn’t want to compromise taste for health.
And as any true foodie knows, a mediocre meal is a wasted meal. That’s why the GMM team has worked relentlessly to develop unique flavor profiles while using high-quality ingredients to make each *FUEL meal distinctive in its own right. Virtually all guests agreed, the *FUEL line gives you restaurant quality without the hassle or price tag.
Let me just say, we got a lot of food at the tasting. And while I took a good portion home with me, I didn’t feel weighed down or overly full like I might while eating out at a restaurant. Since each meal was so light, yet nutrient-dense, I felt satisfied for hours after the tasting. Let’s face it, you can’t go wrong supporting your Atlanta community and eating real, delicious food to fuel your active lifestyle. Talk about a win-win!
