Default Anyone tried "Freshly" delivered meals?

Been seeing the commercials for several weeks now and the food on their site looks pretty good - and nutritional.

Freshly.com shows the meals, ingredients, nutritional info, etc.. They change the offerings often and you can get as few as a 4-meal "Package". You decide on delivery dates you want.

Put 'em in the microwave and go for 3 minutes and they're READY.

ANYONE? Wife and I are thinking about getting the 4-meal for a try.

Regards,

I just ordered a six meal pack under their promo. $42 shipped and I agree, the meals look pretty good. The Harris Teeter near my house used to carry a line of "higher end" frozen meals a guy from hunt camp told me about. I tried it and it was really good, so it is possible to get healthy and tasty frozen meals, but you gotta pay for it. Without the promo code, it appears it will be about $10/meal. I'm single and everytime I go to the store to grab a few items to cook for dinner it's $20+, so this may work out.

I'll update this thread when they arrive and I can try the meals.

I've been using Freshly for several months, and can say it's all been pretty good meals. Runs me a little over $8 per meal, 6 meals per week. I try to vary the selection every few weeks to keep it interesting.

Yes - Used them up until this COVID shit hit. I work in a Govt facility. Due to location and parking we can't really go out for lunch and our cafeteria sucks quality-wise and is way overpriced. I ordered Freshlys and took them to work and ate them at home on the rare occasion. Definitely better food and cheaper than what was available at work.

In my situation they worked out okay. I was impressed with the quality, a little disappointed with serving size and the limited selection available. They seem to have a lot of chicken dishes.

Hope this helps

I know some people that use hello fresh and they think it’s pretty good and good quality. I believe the meals range from reheat type to actually cooking the ingredients but everything is ready to go.

I do the same - often use for lunch, but occasionally dinner instead.

All are pretty healthy, 600 calories or less, many under 500.

You may want to come back to it again, the selection has certainly increased in last few months.

We have ordered from them twice and they are good, we had one that we didn't like at all but I don't recall which one it was. The thing that's irritating is once you contact or order from them they will fill your inbox with emails. I have had to block Meghan@freshly because I'm sick of getting their emails all the time.

For anyone wanting to lose weight you may want to consider Atkins frozen dinners. There isn't a lot of food in each dinner but they are pretty inexpensive and shockingly good.

Wife and I use Hello Fresh. Don’t really have any complaints. Food has been good, easy to cook, and their customer service is actually pretty good. We had a chicken package bust in our box and they gave us a credit for three new meals.

I mean really! How lazy can people be? Buy a whole chicken, bag of onions, celery, carrots, rice - feed two people for 3 meals. Six different ways to cook it too. Or - go to a restaurant!

For us it has nothing to do with being lazy, we both work 10-11 hour days and when we get home we don't want to have to take an hour to cook and eat at 8p in the evening. It's called convenience not laziness. My wife is a great cook so she tries to make a couple of meals on the weekend that we can warm up during the week like a pot of spaghetti or mac&cheese casserole but during the week there just isn't a lot of time to cook after we get home.

I don't cook, I totally suck at it so when it's my turn to cook it's a can of soup or a tub of frozen lasagna.

my wife does the hello fresh from time to time, she finally cancelled it because she got tired of me bitching because her cooking is better. some of the meals arent bad but id rather have her cooking.
