I have to say: I’m a pretty lucky lady. Last week I had three freshly prepared meals and two snacks delivered to my door each day, which not only eliminated the need to go grocery shopping for an entire week (and let’s face it, food shopping isn’t exactly cheap in the NYC-area) but it also saved me from one of my least favorite chores of all time–dishes. It always amazes me how quickly they pile up in the sink even though I live alone.
So when I was asked to do a review for The Fresh Diet I jumped at the opportunity. Here is a program that offers a wide assortment of healthy food options to accommodate anyone on a diabetic, kosher, vegetarian, or gluten free diet. I have been a vegetarian for the past 14 years (though I have recently incorporated more fish into my life) and I always read food labels and pay attention to nutritional content. I was impressed that I could customize my meals according to my likes/dislikes and food restrictions and it was fun to add items to my cart that sounded the most appealing.
The Fresh Diet was also a huge lifesaver to me. I have been battling some food allergies for the past few weeks and am on an elimination diet to rule out some possible suspects. Having the reassurance that the foods delivered were safe to eat really set my mind at ease and allowed me to focus on getting back to a healthy, fit place once again.
The food portions were big enough to keep me satisfied and I was extremely happy with how fresh everything tasted. Breakfast usually consisted of an assortment of fruit, I would eat a hearty salad for lunch, and I enjoyed a protein of sorts for dinner along with two side dishes. And there were two snacks each day, too (one savory and one sweet). The convenience factor was a huge selling point for me. I’m a busy gal and don’t often have the luxury of preparing healthy meals at the end of the day (and am sometimes forced to grab a ridiculously overpriced lunch in the city because I can’t get it together in time to pack a lunch). So waking up to find this adorable tote on my stoop packed with fresh noms for the day and a menu was refreshing (and something I could definitely get used to):
