If we never had to cook another meal again for the rest of our lives we’d be more than ok with that. Enter Freshly. They’ve officially changed our lives, helped out waistline, and even saved us some money on meals. Did we mention we’re never cooking again. New to Freshly and what they’re all about? You’re about to become as hooked as we are!
What Is It?
Freshly is one of the most popular and fastest growing meal delivery services of freshly prepared and nutritious meals in recent years. What’s unique about them is that the food already comes prepared by approved chefs and all you have to do is heat it up and you’re all ready to eat. If you choose the microwave option, you’ll be eating in less than 5 minutes. Does it actually get any better than this?
We first heard about them when, you guessed it, watching TV. There was a commercial for them and we were drooling over the meals, but never thought we’d be able to afford something like this. Well, affording it to try it out is one thing. Sustaining weekly meal delivery is another thing. However, we were more than pleasantly surprised when we crunched the numbers and basically realized that certain plan options would actually help save us money. Plus, TBH, we’d never have the time to cook meals like these for the most part.
Freshly currently offers a few different meal plans and pricing options that can work for just about anyone. Whether you’re looking for all your meals, just a couple, for the full week, partial week, or whatever there’s something that should suit you. Here’s their current breakdown:
- 4 Meals Per Week For $11.49/Meal – See It Here
- 6 Meals Per Week For $9.49/Meal – See It Here
- 10 Meals Per Week For $8.99/Meal – See It Here
- 12 Meals Per Week For $8.49/Meal – See It Here
What really helps set them apart from some others online is that you can specify certain dietary needs (or things you have to stay away from) and you can even specify certain criteria for your meals like you want them packed with protein or low on carbs, etc. Personally, this also really works well with our current fasting schedule so we went with the 10 meals per week (skipping breakfast and taking a break on the weekends). But you do you, boo.
Some of our current favorite meals that we’ve had in the past and are basically obsessed with include:
- Steak Peppercorn with Sautéed Carrots
- Better-For-You Beef and Broccoli Bowl
- Chicken Pesto
- Pulled Pork with Mexican Corn
You usually can’t go wrong with any of them and they always find a way to add in some really healthy additions that you’d normally never do on your own. At least we don’t!
Outside of being in love with all our meals and how easy it is, they actually make really good gift ideas too. For real. We’ve recently added them into our gift guide for the men who have everything on your list and even our popular “Your Wife Secretly Wants This Gift.” Both have proved to be readers faves this month. Since we’re always so last minute, these really come in handy for last minute gifts too!
Are There Promo Codes or Coupons?
Ok so we’ve been emailed this question so many times we thought we’d be crystal clear here with our answer. Sadly, no, we don’t offer any promo codes or coupons of any kind. Freshly, however, sometimes has a promo code that you can use when you check out. Like we mentioned, we’ve seen one they promote in their commercials, but we always recommend to shop them directly because they’ll have all their current and active offers there.
Some recent offers we’ve seen include a $40 off Refer-a-Friend deal and even a 15% discount for students, which is super helpful and at least you know your college-aged kids are actually eating things outside of takeout 3 times a day! We also recommend so sign up with your email address and, at times, they’ll send you over your own discount code as an incentive to place your first order. They’re good like that!
In the meantime here are the quickest ways to see the latest and greatest promos from Freshly in August 2021.
