Fit Eats

Fit Eats opened in midtown a couple of years ago, offering prepared meals for pick up or delivery. The food is geared toward people who want an easy way to eat healthy meals. Each dish includes nutritional information and microwave heating times.

I visited Fit Eats right after they opened, and there were no vegan meals. Recently, I checked their website and found some vegan options, although when I called the midtown store, they were out of them. So I went online and ordered the three dishes marked as vegan for pickup later in the week.

The first dish I tried was the teriyaki tofu, a mix of tofu, shiitake mushrooms, broccoli, carrots, green onions, sesame seeds, and teriyaki sauce, served with brown rice. This tasty meal contained just 290 calories, and was a perfect size for lunch.

The next day, I had the tempeh burrito, which consisted of tempeh, black beans, red bell pepper, corn, and onions in a whole wheat tortilla. Salsa and a side salad of spinach, tomatoes, and onions accompanied the burrito. The calorie count for this meal was 392. A word of warning: even though this meal was listed on the Fit Eats website as vegan, I noticed after the fact that there is honey in the avocado vinaigrette salad dressing.

My favorite of the three dishes I ordered was the ginger basil tofu and rice. This simple 235-calorie meal is made of tofu, bell peppers, broccoli, onions, ginger, basil, tamari, and orange juice, served with brown rice.

Fit Eats meals are prepared at a kitchen in Sacramento, then delivered to their stores in midtown and Roseville. They will also deliver to homes in the greater Sacramento area, but they don't deliver to businesses. The menu changes weekly at Fit Eats, so the items I ordered may not be available all the time.

Fit Eats in midtown is located at 1420 16th Street, and their phone number is 916-448-3287, ext. 102. The Roseville store is located at 1455 Eureka Road, and their phone number is 916-389-9899. Both stores are open Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. More information about Fit Eats is available on their website at, or on their Facebook page at
