Fresh Healthy Food Delivered to your Front Door via @FreshDiet
This one seemed too good to be true when I first heard about it. The Fresh Diet is a company that makes and delivers all of your food to your front door – daily. If that’s not awesome enough, all of the foods are nutritionally balanced for weight loss (or maintenance, depending on what you select) and promote healthy living with heart-healthy, fresh foods.
I tested out the Fresh Diet for a week. This post comes the day after my week-long trial ends and I’m so sad to be going to back to having to make my own food. I’m spoiled! Seriously.
I’ve been dieting and calorie counting since the New Year so I really appreciated having the ease of the Fresh Diet for a week and having my calories already figured out for me – with healthy food.
You can select from a variety of plans based on calorie count and I opted for the 1200-1400 calories a day plan. (You can go lower but I find with working out regularly I need at least 1200+ a day to lose weight.)
Before my week started, I went through my diet schedule and I was able to make selections for what I wanted off the Fresh Diet website. Each day consists of three meals, a snack and a dessert. Each of those five items would come with at least 3 choices or more to ensure you could select the foods you like.
There was also a spot where you could put foods in your dislike basket. This is where you put all the things you don’t eat. For me, garlic because I’m allergic. Red meat because I don’t eat it. Most of the time I didn’t see anything come up as an option with these things in them but a few times when I tried to select something with a sauce of some kind I’d get a note that I should select something else because that particular food had garlic in it. So awesome. It’s so tough for me with allergies and garlic because it’s not a common one and it’s in EVERYTHING so I really appreciated having this made so simple for me!
Overall, this service is awesome. I’m not gonna sugar coat it, it’s pricey. 31-days is $1,084.69 for the Chef’s Plan. Y-ouch. BUT, when I got to thinking about it, the sticker price didn’t shock me as much. Fresh, gourmet food is expensive. What would you spend in a month on diet, fresh, gourmet food in a month?
And the key here for me is the convenience. I don’t know about you guys but I’m always on the run with a crazy Mom schedule. It’s tough to plan out a weekly menu, let alone factoring in a diet for me. So that’s one of the main reasons I think the Fresh Diet is invaluable. It’s really great for a working Mom/person or anyone who just has little time in their day but wants to eat healthy.
I’ve got a few more days left on the plan so I’ll do a follow up post to let you guys know about the food and other details.
But in the meantime, I have a deal for my readers. You can receive 3 days free with the purchase of a 31 day plan at $29.99 per day. The promo code is: semommar29
