At home meal delivery services are definitely a trend these days. You can go the Blue Apron route where the ingredients are delivered and you prepare at home, or you can do the Freshology route where your meals are prepared and all you have to do is warm them up. The Freshology team recently offered to send me a free day’s worth of meals in exchange for a Freshology review, so here are my thoughts.
One thing I must caveat is that the Englishman and I are big cookers. We do a Sunday meal prep and usually plan out or meals for the week, so having Freshology plan my day’s worth of meals for me was an interesting concept. The team at Freshology was also great about accommodating my food allergies, and I ended up with a day’s worth of corn, soy, and gluten-free meals.
Since I work in an office all day I was a little concerned that the meals would sit outside my doorstep before I got home that evening. Not only did my meals arrive by 6 am, they also came in an insulated cooler bag.
The breakfast meal included eggs, Parmesan, kale and fruit which was great since I often have eggs for breakfast.
Lunch was a giant salad (again what I usually have at work), and was a Cobb salad loaded with turkey, ham and eggs.
Dinner was fish wrapped in a banana leaf and a side of quinoa and peppers. The bag also included a cup of fruit and chicken skewer for a snack, which I ate at work.
The best part about Freshology? You simply place your cooler bag outside your door Sunday night and someone picks it up (or drops off a new delivery) by Monday morning. This reduces all the excess packaging waste that often comes along with meal delivery services.
I really liked the Freshology concept, but since I do prepare almost all my meals at home anyway, I probably wouldn’t use them on a regular basis. But if you work long hours or simply don’t have time to do meal prep, this is a great option.
Now the best part. The team behind Freshology is offering all Sweet Potato Bites readers a $25 voucher to use on their first order! If you are curious about an at home meal delivery service, be sure to check them out.
Many thanks to the Freshology team for letting me try a day’s worth of meals!
