All meals are planned and prepared by chefs, nutritionists and dieticians and delivered fresh, not frozen. Recently the company was listed for the 2nd time on the prestigious Inc. 5000 as one of the fastest growing companies in the U.S. The company’s growth is due to the changing habits and preferences of consumers who are choosing to eat healthier nutritious meals.

How it Works

With Fresh N Lean you can choose a weekly meal plan with up to 3 meals a day. With each meal you will be able to indicate preferences and modify your meal plan accordingly. You can also order additional meals or snacks as well as bulk meals and sides as required. Excluding the Keto meals, all dishes are gluten and dairy free. All meals are shipped fresh and ready to be reheated and consumed. Once delivered, meals must be stored in the refrigerator within 24 hours. Lean & Fresh meals are delivered weekly and orders can be cancelled or rescheduled as long as this is done within the time restrictions advertised. If you prefer a more flexible subscription the a la carte menu will give you more options. This option costs more and items are subject to availability. All meals are individually portioned and currently the company does not cater for children. Meals must be ordered a week in advance and deliveries are sent out on Fridays and delivered by Saturday afternoon. A la carte meals are not delivered on weekends and might take a bit longer to reach you. Specific day deliveries can be arranged at an extra cost. Meals are delivered fresh and can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 10 days. Freezing is not recommended but can be done if necessary.

Products

All ingredients used in Fresh N Lean meals and snacks are whole organic, nutritious and locally sourced. All meals are gluten and GMO free and the majority of the recipes are dairy and soy free. Proteins used are grass fed meat, sustainable fish and free range poultry, all hormone and antibiotic free. The Vegan and Vegan low carb meals are fully vegan and Paleo and Keto meals are designed according to diet specifications. Fresh N Lean does not use any artificial or processed ingredients and meals are prepared by professional chefs. Ingredients are never fried and only prepared by quick baking or steaming in order to preserve nutrients. For those who take nutrition seriously, Fresh N Lean offers advice on which vitamins or ingredients you can add to your diet in order to get the recommended daily dose of nutrients. This is particularly important for those following plant based meal plans. Most meals are all inclusive except for breakfast where it is recommended you add some fresh fruit or organically sourced plant based milk. Vacuum sealed trays and insulated boxes keep meals fresh during delivery and all packaging is recyclable. Nutritional facts of every ingredient is listed with every meal pack.

Fresh N Lean prices depend on which plan you choose and how many meals you order per day. All meals are individually packed and the cheapest plan is the Vegan Standard which starts at $7.93 per portion for three meals a day. The Keto and Paleo meals cost around $10.78 a portion. Shipping is free unless you change the delivery day. It is worth noting that the individual meals are cheaper if you order more meals per day. Prices are current and subject to change.
