Chicken albondigas, shrimp elote, Buffalo chicken pizza and turkey Bolognese. All of these dishes have one thing in common—okay, make that two. They’re delicious, and they’re good for you, too.

Foodie Fit co-founder Alex Lee knew he wanted to switch things up when he entered the meal prep business. The industry is plagued with companies offering boring and tasteless meals that sacrifice flavor in turn for health. Foodie Fit has been different from the beginning.

“I wanted to create a lifestyle brand,” Lee says, who went into business with co-founders Andrew Kowal and chef Bo Vu almost a year ago.

Vu spent the past seven years working as a chef in the restaurant industry before coming together with Lee and Kowal to found Foodie Fit. That expertise helps the company stand out from other meal delivery services in town.

For starters, there isn’t just one cuisine on Foodie Fit’s menu. The chef takes inspiration from all over the world, incorporating flavors from the Mediterranean as well as Latin, Korean, Vietnamese and American cuisines. And while the meal prep business caters to athletes, it’s also a perfect fit for people on the go, like Las Vegans in the service industry or stay-at-home parents. The menu reflects Foodie Fit’s diverse demographics.

“We wanted to do something that was a convenient and healthy option,” Lee says. He also wanted to help people. That much was evident over the last two weeks, when Lee and his team made and donated hundreds of meals to Route 91 victims, families and first responders.

Foodie Fit has since returned to business as usual, but it hasn’t stopped making an impact in the community. Whether it’s for one meal or an entire week’s worth, “people are doing their shopping here with us,” Lee says. Eating healthy in Vegas has never been easier, or more satisfying. Foodie Fit, 2185 E.
