If you didn’t already know, Freshly creates pre-made, fresh, chef prepared meals that are delivered straight to your doorsteps. The brand was kind enough to send me four meals to test out on my own and review if I so choose. I just finished the last one tonight and I’m ready to give you all my feedback!
Before I start I’d like to announce I’m a giant lean cuisine fan. I mean huge. I love how easy it is to pop one in the microwave and be done with dinner or lunch. It’s quick, tastes good, and I feel like I’m still staying a little healthy. It’s tough to say but my new alternative, Freshly, has taken this concept and turned it upside down.
The food made is packed with protein and filled with vital nutrients for your diet. The meals are larger and never frozen. Everything even has expiration dates that coincide with how long the meat and ingredients can stay good for! That’s exactly how fresh they actually are! The choices to choose from are super delicious too with meals perfect for anyone.
I’m sure I’ve rambled enough but I’d like review each meal for you today and give you some more insight on this amazing company! Let’s get started!
“The food you eat can be either the safest and most powerful form of medicine or the slowest form of poison”
Southwest Veggie Bowl
This was a meal I wasn’t expecting to enjoy. I chose it so I had a reason to move out of my comfort zone. I didn’t want to stick with what I knew or the experience wouldn’t be accurate or fun! I found that the vegetables tasted flavorful and the spices really bumped up the dish. I did think the serving size was a bit large though! I definitely couldn’t finish all of this and had to put the rest in the fridge for later. If you grab the Southwest Veggie Bowl, know that this can feed two people with no problem!
Another great dish I just couldn’t get enough of! This one most likely racked in second place because I got such Thanksgiving vibes from it. The gravy that coated the turkey complimented the meat well and tied everything together nicely. The green beans were prepared casserole style and instead of a heavy stuffing, the dish came with a quinoa based mash. This was a healthy alternative to what would’ve been a very heavy dinner.
Peach Balsamic Pork Chop
As soon as I removed this from my microwave, the house was filled with an aroma of deliciousness. The peach wasn’t overpowering and created a smooth glaze over the pork. Previous pork chop meals I’ve eaten had been extremely chewy, to the point where I couldn’t even finish it! This option was easy to cut into and effortless to eat. Loved this!
Soy-Ginger Chicken With Fried Rice
This was probably my favorite out of all the meals I ate! The chicken was very moist, the rice was light, and the vegetables weren’t soggy like I would expect them to have been. I was impressed with the charred marks on the chicken too! It reminded me that the food I was eating was prepared by hand, in a kitchen, with a real chef! So good!
