Meals Review 2021 // In this video, I'm taking you along as I order Freshly for the first time. I'm reviewing Freshly from top to bottom: the food, the packaging, the ordering process, and the price.

This is , but I sure wish it was!

🙇🏻‍♀️💭💭I LOVE MY FRESHLY!! I organize mine using the ‘use by’ dates on the back, so I will eat them in order. I very highly recommend Freshly. I have cancer, so their meals really help me eat better. Everything I have tried has been amazing! They even add new meals to the menu regularly. Yes….their Customer Service is The Gold Standard!!!

@Donata White, How sweet. I didn’t expect a reply. The only reason I even mentioned it, is for others to know about Freshly. I can only get freshly once a month, and I can tell the difference. I definitely feel better. I have Systemic Amyloidosis, which is terminal, so no recovery. I’m okay with my diagnosis. I’ve had a pretty good life!

My wife and I have received our second order of 12 meals from Freshly. We really love the meals as they give you good portion sizes with clever sauces and seasonings to make some great tasting low carb meals. We need low carb meals due to health issues. With our first order I made the mistake of thinking these were frozen meals and put them all in the freezer. I couldn't understand why the cook times were so much longer than the directions said. Then it dawned on me, these are "Freshly" meals... meaning they're fresh, not frozen. We now leave in the fridge just the meals we'll eat for the first 3 or 4 days and freeze the rest, defrosting the frozen ones in the morning as needed. We're actually skipping a week because my wife is gone away on business, which kind of messes us up. I'm not quite sure whether to go food shopping or order from Freshly. I really don't want to get off of this low carb regimen due to health concerns, but Freshly only ships to a schedule you pre-choose. I don't know how to modify it to fit our needs and not overfill out fridge with both food shopping and Freshly.

Can you tell the difference from refrigerated vs frozen. I'm ordering every 6 days and was wondering if it's more economical to buy in bulk and freeze the rest or does freezing ruin the taste. Thank you.
Donata White
Donata White 2 aylar önce
Since they arrive frozen, it hasn't made a difference for us! We usually place the biggest order possible (12 meals) and then freeze what we won't eat immediately. We order again once we're about to run out.

Literally just came across your channel today. I’m going to be looking at all of your meal prep reviews! Some of the food prep services, I’ve never heard of before. I am definitely considering getting freshly and your review was extremely helpful, concise and very detailed. Thank you very much for your time and putting this together! I will keep you posted if you like! I’m super excited to watch more of your videos this is the first one I’ve seen.

Loved your review. I have been looking into Freshly just because they have tons of choices to pick from. Though they don’t have any veggie options for my sister. My husband and I are looking into meal service to lose weight. I like to calorie count and have a different meal each time rather eating same everyday. Ordering this soon.

@Donata White I found few veggies and vegan options. I did want to leave a feedback for anyone reading the comments. I have had freshly for a month now and it is so convenient and counting calories is easy if that is what you are looking for. Tons of options. I have a baby, so it is hard to cook some days and this is our go to meal. We haven’t gone out to eat over 3 weeks. We use to eat out a lot.

Thank you for the video. It's nice to see the opinion of others. I tried Freshly and Home Chef and out of the two, I prefer Freshly because cooking got a little cumbersome with Home Chef. Freshly's meals were hit and miss. Some were questionable and some were great and there was no prep other than heat and serve. One could easily chose their favorites and enjoy meals regularly. What bothers me about both is the packaging. The boxes are nice and sturdy and reusable, the filler packaging is questionable. After a while it really ads up -- too many gel packs, and too much thermal insulation that some do not like filling our landfills with. I don't think the gels should or can be dumped down the drain, we have enough water problems as it is. The packaging makes me think twice about this meal ordering. Otherwise, I think Freshly is good. Thanks again, DP.
Donata White
Donata White 4 aylar önce
I totally get what you're saying. I believe the insulation is recycled cotton, but I could be wrong about that. We've actually been saving it to protect some of our belongings when we move. So at the very least, everything is easy to reuse. And I don't think the gel packs are meant to go down the drain. If I said that in the video, I misspoke! They're water-soluble, so they dissolve once put in the trash/landfill, and the outer plastic portion is recyclable. I figure I'd be using about the same amount of packaging if I bought food to prepare from the grocery store.

Anytime you put steak in the microwave, the center is going to cook because that's how microwaves heat. It's not like applying the heat from a grill or pan where it sears the outside first. It may just be a meal that isn't your favorite!

someone recommended not microwaving the meals to reheat. just toss it in a skillet, depending on what it is maybe a little water or broth to liven it up. taste-wise, a much better taste and texture over nuking them.

Yes! If you have the flexibility to heat these at home, that's a great option! I love that you can do it whatever way is most convenient for you.

Yeah, you can have these and add whatever you like! It's meant to be a convenient meal ready to go. It's not a diet plan you have to follow like Nutrisystem or one of those. Make it work for you!

You definitely could, although you'd also have to pay attention to the breakfasts and snacks you were eating. These meals are healthy, filling, and in the right calorie range for someone trying to lose weight. But you'd definitely have to eat other food as well, and you could lose, maintain, or gain weight depending on what you combined these with.

@Matt Leftwich well I hope you enjoy! I tried two other companies and this was my favorite so far. BTW if you're ever wondering if something is sponsored, a dead giveaway (aside from the legally required disclosure!) is mentioning other brands by name in the video. Companies usually do not allow sponsored content to name other brands.

Not sure why you have so few views and no comments, your videos are great! So professional and concise, good job. I just got my first freshly order a few days ago and I've been pretty happy as well. I love that the nutritional info and use by date is on every meal. My only complaint is most of these services offer free shipping and freshly charges, but it's a small complaint. Thanks for your review!
Donata White
Donata White 8 aylar önce
Well thank you for the compliment! It's partially my fault for not being consistent with uploading a few years ago. But we're back now! lol Shipping charges are a bummer, but honestly I feel like it's expected. They have to overnight ship in special packaging to make sure the food gets there fresh. That definitely costs money! So I don't mind paying it. So glad you're enjoying the service as well!
