Review: Fresh n’ Lean Food Delivery

Fresh n Lean Food Delivery

I was recently approached by T.O.F.U. Magazine about reviewing Fresh n’ Lean, a snazzy plant-based food delivery service that prepares and delivers premium quality, all organic, gluten-free, and fresh meals nationwide. I’ve never (ever) been one to turn down food of any kind, and let’s face it – working and training full-time in New York City while hustling with all my might to get Red Radio back on the air (stay tuned!) has left me with very little time to prepare amazing meals. Fresh n’ Lean appeals to those of us who are pressed for time, but still want to enjoy the healthy foods we love. Carefully prepared and affordable, meals are delivered right to your door via FedEx – whether it be at home, work or school. No more excuses!

Fresh n’ Lean’s wide array of meals are fresh, not frozen, with cuisine styles ranging from Mediterranean and Continental to Asian and South American. Always gluten free, plant based, low fat, low sugar, and low sodium, they use premium organic ingredients and add love to every bite! Their meals never contain GMO’s, artificial ingredients or flavors, preservatives, MSG, corn derived ingredients or dairy, and feature farm to table ingredients. Does it get much better than that? It does, actually! Fresh n’ Lean also happens to be affordable, with several meal plans and options from which to choose, and deliveries are always free. Win!

But wait… how’s the actual food?

Fresh n' Lean's Vegan Berry Muffin
Fresh n’ Lean was kind enough to send me two breakfast menu items and three entrees to sample. For breakfast, they offered some super yummy Berry Muffins and a Tropical Chia Pudding with Coconut and Pineapple. Both were spectacular! The muffins were wholesome and delicious, and the pudding – sweetened with maple syrup – was filling enough to last me two meals.

Fresh n' Lean's Artichoke Spanish Rice
For my entree selection, I had three options: Artichoke Spanish Rice, Thai Curry Rice & Veggies, and a “Cheesy” Chipotle Split Pea Bowl. All three had their merits. I absolutely LOVE artichokes, and they were plentiful in the Spanish Rice. The Thai Curry was just the right amount of spicy. But my favorite was definitely the Split Pea Bowl – packed with veggies (yum, sweet potato!), the texture of the split peas was just perfect and really set off the not-too-heavy chipotle flavours.

All things considered, I’d definitely recommend Fresh n’ Lean for busy vegans who might otherwise reach for a bag of Earth Balance White Cheddar Popcorn and a bottle of coconut water for dinner. It’s a super-convenient, well-organized and consistently yummy choice in the face of our increasingly hectic schedules, and there’s nothing more satisfying than knowing you don’t have to think about what to cook after a long day being a vegan superhero. Furthermore, I’d even recommend this service to new vegans or pre-vegans looking to ease up their ingredient-reading quota a little bit. Fresh n’ Lean makes truly nutritious vegan eating a breeze.

Now I’m just going to have to figure out how to recreate that Split Pea Bowl…
