    Silver is my best friend now! My Mom lives in Jersey and I can’t go over there every day to cook for her since I live in NY with my family and I need to take care of them too. She’s been on her own for the last 3 years and Silver really helps. She even orders herself now, doesn’t need my help and explanations.

    Silver is great! I’ve never been much of a cook myself, but heating is my specialty! :D

    I like the flexibility and the menu, so many options! I’d like if they could deliver daily and the food wasn’t frozen. If that’s possible, pls think about it. I know my dad would appreciate it.

    I really wanted to like Trifecta. I have two teenage boys and a husband that eat very substantial meals, that I enjoy cooking. But I need to lose a few pounds, which is tough when I am always cooking meals for my family. Our family eats a very healthy, 100% organic diet and it seemed like this would be a good service for me to eat a smaller meal, while continuing to cook for my family. I ordered the vegan plan because, although I am not vegan, I am allergic to a lot of foods and vegan meals are the safest. I then ordered some elk and fish a la cart to add to a meal or throw in a salad. After receiving the shipment, I was pretty disappointed in how the meals looked. Pretty unappetizing and not at all how the pics on the website looked. The next morning, I had a breakfast meal, which was a “loaf”. It was disgusting. Dry and basically flavorless. I only ate half, because who wants a huge portion of cardboard? Plus I want some fruit and a little protein in the morning. The rest of the meals were blah. They were pretty small and higher calories than I would have expected for such small meals. The elk was okay but had a big piece of gristle running through it. I have not had the fish yet and I just threw it in the freezer. I gave Trifecta 3 stars instead of 2 because it would be a good service for a single person that doesn’t cook and wants to eat healthy. That just isn’t me.

    Food was overpriced, and really not good. I ended up throwing away a whole order because just looking at it made me feel nauseated. All I got was chicken. I ordered the lean & clean plan, hoping for some variety. I got chicken and rice dishes that were frankly disgusting in taste. I can admire their dedication to organic and high quality ingredients but wow these tasted really terrible.

    Food is lovely, organic, wild caught,etc. Lightly seasoned really does mean lightly, so i add a lot of seasoning if I can figure out what they're using. I think it's a good value for what you pay. There were two cons as far as I'm concerned. The third week they ignored my food allergy list and sent two meals i couldn't eat. They did refund my money instantly when i called. The other problem is that they can't or won't let you say something like beef only once per week. As far as food allergies you are out of luck if you have more than two,so it may not work for me. Be aware they consider potatoes paleo. I can't remember if they only use the small blue ones or others as well.

    Review: Convienience: 5/5 Timely deliver 3.5/5 Food quality 3/5 Flavor 2/5 Customer service: 1/5 I hate cooking, that, and daving a extremely knowlegable family member as a dietician who teaches nationally was what it took for me to finally try a meal service. I tied one locally that was about $10 per meal with snacks that I enjoyed. However they used agave, which tends to be chocked full of pesicides and chemicals, and they used organic "When available". This pretty much led me to believe, that meant NEVER. Enter Trifecta. $110 seemed quite expensive for 7 meals, but my family dietcian reminded me I probabaly spend that anyway on my "main" meals for the week. So I gave in . I ordered just after Christmas , and about 2 weeks later my first order arrived. Packaging was vaccum packed well and the meals were cold still. I surprised by the fact there was no beef. But its all about flavor and quality. They dont use any salt at all, so the food is bland...and I dont eat very much salt or sweet. I began adding pink sea salt and it helped A LOT. I will rate the meals below This is what I got. Salmon and chick pees 4/5 . Good portion . This was the best tasting meal, but again ALL need at least a little seasoning. Ahi and Brussel sprouts 3.5/5 Good size portion, not great. flavor it up and pretty good. (skin on the ahi which was surprising) Chicken wings and veggie stew- 1/5 TRASH. I was so mad 2 came in the meal. super small, fatty and BLAND. I was so hungry after eating it and im only 175 lbs. Customer service was also a joke. I recieved an email saying my second order was arriving that day. bummed becuase I really didnt want it I online chatted with customer service...no sympathy. Ask me why I canceled, and I explained I wasnt thrilled with the chicken. I was overly nice. The lady offere NO response. Then why ask? lol Anyway ...I dont recommend this company at this time. $15 for a meal that I would have thrown away if it wasnt $16!
