The best Muscle Food alternatives in the UK (top 4)

Without a doubt, the hardest part of building muscle is being consistent. It takes a lot of commitment and dedication to drag yourself to the gym several times per week and to eat healthily when all you want is to lie in bed and eat some crisps. Unfortunately, we can't really help you with going to the gym 5 times per week - you either want to, or you don't. But there are a number of ways that you can make the healthy eating side of building muscle much easier. Services like Muscle Food, which deliver meat and high-protein ready meals direct to your home on a regular basis, make planning and preparing muscle-building meals much more simple. Unfortunately, Muscle Food is quite expensive and isn't an option for everyone due to the price. But there are a number of excellent Muscle Food alternatives that you can try, so you can get muscle-building meals delivered to your home without paying a fortune. Here are the best Muscle Food alternatives we've found:

Farmison & Co

Here in the UK, the standard of our animal welfare and farming is world-leading, so it doesn't really make sense to order meat from a company like Muscle Food which sources meat from other countries. We like Farmison & Co because all of their meat is from the UK. Obviously, the main difference between Farmison & Co and Muscle Food is that the products on the Farmison & Co website aren't all optimal for people looking to build lean muscle - some of the fattier meats, such as pork and bacon, might need to be avoided. However, the team at Farmison & Co has created a number of options for people looking to buy lean meats, such as the Lean Meat Box (pictured), which contains items like skinned chicken breast and extra lean beef steak mince and is a very similar service to what Muscle Food offers. Overall, Farmison & Co is a top choice if you're looking for quality British meat delivered to your home. Learn more and explore the entire range here -

The Dorset Meat Company

Like Farmison & Co, The Dorset Meat Company specialises in quality cuts of British meats delivered to your home. One of the best things about The Dorset Meat Company offering is that you can create your own custom meat box and then subscribe to receive it on a regular basis. So if you're one of those bodybuilders who basically live off chicken breasts, this service is ideal. If you only want to receive really high-quality meat from this brand, then there is an entire section dedicated to grass-fed beef on the website. All of the meat is hand-prepared by a team of master butchers, a level of service that you definitely won't get from Muscle Food. Learn more and order here -

The Meat Box Company

If what you love about Muscle Food is having the option to choose a premade box from their range, then we think you'll also really enjoy The Meat Box Company. This brand allows you to select from a range of premade boxes, many of which are ideal for people who are looking to build muscle. For example, the Low Fat & Lean box contains venison steaks and turkey steaks, which are low in fat and high in protein. If you want a more customised box then you can build your own, but we love that The Meat Box Company makes it easy for you. Just like Muscle Food, the meat from The Meat Box Company is vacuum-packed and blast frozen before being packed to help preserve freshness. Learn more and explore the range here -

Meat in the Box

One of the most impressive things about Muscle Food is the Trustpilot rating of the brand - a 'Great' rating from more than 100k reviewers. That's why we think Meat in the Box, a brand with an even better 'Excellent' rating on Trustpilot, makes such a great alternative to Muscle Food. The Meat in the Box is much much simpler than the Muscle Food range, but this was a positive for us. If all you want is a box of lean chicken delivered to your home, this brand is a great option.
