Fresh n’ Lean | Organic Meal Delivery Service

Meal delivery services can be a total lifesaver. If you don’t have time to cook, if you want to send a thoughtful gift to a friend, if you have a loved one that you want to make sure is getting healthy, nutritious food. One of the downsides? Sometimes the pre-made meals can be on the unhealthy side, high in sodium and fat.

Fresh n’ Lean to the rescue!

This company was created with health in mind and their offerings reflect that. They’re focused on delivering healthy, organic food that promotes a balanced lifestyle. They even cater to specific diets and needs:

They’ll even customize a meal selection just for your individual needs if you reach out. And compared to some of the meal plans out there that are made with organic, high-quality ingredients, Fresh n’ Lean offers very competitive pricing.

The standard food delivery plan is $27.99 a day, which means that the cost of each meal comes out to under $10.00. They don’t stop there though, if you’re not interested in 3 meals a day, you can get just what you need on one of their other plans: 1 entrée per day plan is $14.99 and the lunch & dinner entrée meal plan is $23.50. And if that wasn’t great enough, you can also order meals a la carte and just pick what you need.

The company sent over a few entrées for me to try so that I could give you guys an honest review. They were all organic, vegan, and gluten-free. I tried out 1 breakfast and 5 lunch/dinner entrées.

Pros:

  • Easy delivery – One box with ice packs and all the sealed trays inside
  • Healthy meals & clean ingredients
  • No muss, no fuss – No cleaning up or dishes, just a simple, easy process
  • YUMMY! Who are we kidding, the taste is extremely important. Luckily, all the meals I tried were tasty. I’d order them all again.

Cons:

  • Limited quantities – While they’re nutritionally dense meals, they aren’t huge. If you’re like me and eat LARGE plant-based meals, you might need to supplement the meals by adding additional greens or grains.

You may have heard me mention Brendan Brazier and his Thrive books in the past, I’m a really big fan of not only his written work but of his general approach to food and nutrition. The healthy food delivery system Fresh N’ Lean is now partnering with Brendan to develop a new line based on his recipes and healthy food principles called Thrive Foods Direct“Fresh ‘N Lean is not another quick fix or fad diet. We do not eliminate carbs or restrict calories. Our concept is really quite simple: prepare healthy, fresh, and delicious meals, without all the preservatives, additives, sodium, and sugar that Americans have come to accept as “normal,” and add the convenience of home/office delivery.”
