Only With Freshly

Freshly believes in flexibility. That is why its meal plans are not limited to specific dishes and you will be able to enjoy whatever food you like on the menu. Meal plans are divided by the number of servings. You can choose to have 4, 6, 9 or even 12 Freshly meals per week. At the moment, Freshly does not offer snacks or desserts.

Should you change your mind, you can change and pause your plan at any time by logging into your Freshly account.

Freshly delivers its boxes of goods from Monday to Saturday. Choose the delivery day that works best for you between the available options. The best part? Delivery is always free.

Freshly’s boxes, plastic meal containers, and cardboard meal sleeves are all recyclable. The recycled denim insulation is mostly biodegradable (roughly 85%), the gel ice packs are non-toxic, and the plastic bags around the denim and ice packs are recyclable.


How Does Freshly Work?

Receiving healthy meals carefully prepared by Freshly is very convenient. You can follow these 3 easy steps to start enjoying your gluten-free dishes:

  1. Sign up. Creating an account on Freshly is very simple. You will only need an email address and your ZIP code. Entering your correct location from the start is the best way to check whether you will be able to access Freshly’s services, as the meal provider does not deliver to the entire US area yet (28 states are served at the moment).
  2. Choose your meals. The Freshly menu is constantly rotating to ensure variety. You can choose between 30+ gluten-free dishes each week and order enough meals to have lunch and dinner covered for the whole week.
  3. Enjoy. Your Freshly box (which is 100% recyclable) is delivered directly to your door. All you have to do is unpack it and warm your favorite meal up — most dishes are ready in under 3 minutes.

Types of Menus

This is a meal delivery service that understands that bodies are different and need different foods in order to perform at their best. And no one knows you as well as you do. That is why Freshly has not created strict menus that limit your choices. All Freshly subscribers can choose any dish from the weekly menu depending on their taste and needs.

To make the choice easier, the menu page includes plenty of handy badges that will help you figure out if a dish is dairy-free, paleo or low-carb at first sight. The list of food categories include:

  • Vegetarian. Free of meat, poultry, and fish. Many vegetarian meals also qualify as vegan.
  • High protein. Over 25 grams of protein per serving.
  • Paleo friendly. Free of dairy, grains, and legumes.
  • <500 cal. Meals guaranteed to be under 500 calories per serving.
  • <35g carbs. Meals guaranteed to contain less than 35 grams of carbs per serving.
  • Soy free.
  • Dairy free.
  • Spicy.

Freshly promises to use organic and non-GMO ingredients whenever possible. If you have specific dietary requirements and allergies, you can get in touch with Freshly’s Wellness Expert to find meals that work for you.

Please note that Freshly’s facilities handle the following allergens: milk, eggs, fish, crustacean shellfish, tree nuts, and soybeans. However, Freshly is a certified gluten-free service and guarantees that no gluten or peanut contamination will occur.
