What is Flexitarian (Flexible-Vegetarian)?
As an alternative to 100% plant-based, vegetarian or vegan diet-styles, there is a plant-based option that allows for some meat: Flexitarianism.
Although vegetarianism is growing, so is the trend to eat mostly plant-based foods but include some quality free-range chicken, lamb, fish, ostrich or grass-fed beef for health reasons. Moderation is a key principle for diet, exercise and life. Many people also want to avoid the commercial ultra-refined plant-based high-protein foods that have flooded the marketplace. Real food must be prioritised.
Whether you’re aiming to reduce your meat consumption for health or ethical reasons, or simply want more vegetables in your life (which is a great idea for nutrient density and gut health), the flexitarian diet has something for everyone.
As with all our EatClean Range meals and kits, our Flexitarian options focus on wholefood vegetables, legumes, nuts, and seeds and exclude processed ingredients, preservatives, refined carbs, and added sugars (apart from the occasion limited use of honey in some meals).
Any animal proteins we do include in our meals come from grass-fed/free-range farms and are free of routine antibiotics and growth hormones.
PACKAGE VARIATIONS FOR LIFESTYLE AND BUDGET:
Flexitarian veg-meat ratio: Our kits include 2 meat meals per week, but feel free to ask for 1/2/3/ meat meals per week to achieve your goals.
- BEST RESULTS: Everything you need! 3 meals + 2 smoothie/day/6-days/week. This is the most popular package, so if you aren’t sure where to start then this a great choice!
- BUDGET: Same great FitChef products minus Breakfast. 2 meals + 1 smoothie/day/6-days/week, a great choice if you have a healthy breakfast routine or prefer to skip a meal.
- EATCLEAN+CRAVINGS KITS: EatClean & Cravings Meals
We deliver to work or home in most major cities around South Africa or choose to collect from our Johannesburg or Cape Town offices. Allow 2 - 4 working days after order is completed or 4 - 8 working days for outlying areas.
If you don't have enough freezer space (we suggest 1 shelf/week) then we do offer split delivery on larger kits/packages in Gauteng and Cape Town and surrounds.

Alternatively, you can choose your own meals and place an Own Selection order to suit your budget and/or space availability.
If you have special or personalised requirements (no pasta/ gluten, no beef, no dairy etc), you can ask for changes to be made to your kit by using the delivery notes found on checkout and we will endeavour to make the necessary meal exchanges. Please note that the exchanges will be of similar nutritional and monetary values.
