3 minutes, y’all. That’s all it takes for Freshly meals to be fully heated and poised for consumption.

How Freshly Works
Because the concept of Freshly frozen foods doesn’t exist, after you receive your highly insulated package, all you have to do is heat and serve once you are ready for your meal.
Each Freshly meal is perfectly sized for 1 person to enjoy at 1 sitting.
Their fully-prepared meals are delivered fresh, and ready to eat in 3 minutes.
We really appreciated Freshly’s meals not tasting as if they had ever been microwaved, even when we heated them up that way.
What You Can Expect From Your Meal
Another one of the most appealing things about Freshly is that the entire menu is gluten-free.
Fortunately, their chefs have ensured that you won’t miss out on anything health-wise by making sure to use nutrient rich meats and produce.
Freshly also has great options for those who are on the following diets:
Each meal provides instructions on how to best heat your meal. For those of you that would prefer to use an oven, Freshly provides instructions on how to do so.
Worried about what to do if you can’t eat everything in your box within a week? Good news! The answer to the “can you freeze Freshly meals?” question is a resounding yes!
Once your meal is frozen, you’ll simply have to add a few minutes to the cook time to make sure everything is heated correctly.
One of the most helpful aspects of Freshly’s delivery system is that you get to pick the day your meals will be delivered.
Freshly delivers to most places Tuesday through Sunday. Once you pick your meal plan, the Freshly site will instruct you to select the delivery date that best suits your schedule.
Based on your delivery schedule, your meals will be shipped by either FedEx or OnTrac. And don’t worry about having to budget for shipping fees, because shipping is free!
You can plan your delivery schedule and meal plan menu and change your address up to three weeks ahead of time.
You’ll always have the opportunity to do a paleo-diet for a couple of weeks, for example, before switching to something else. This option gives you an opportunity to sample a wide variety of meals so that you can figure out your preferences.
As a plus, all of Freshly’s packaging materials are recyclable.
Food for Thought
We love the flexibility of the Freshly meal service and the fact that they have so many options for different diets.
One of the most frustrating things about meal delivery programs can be the lack of things like vegetarian, gluten-free or low carb options.
Given that, the fact that Freshly’s chefs makes it a point to include dishes that meet the dietary requirements of many Americans without skimping on quality and creativity is huge.
One thing to note is that while Freshly does have breakfast options, they are primarily egg-based dishes, which is definitely something to keep in mind if you don’t like eggs.
Freshly’s breakfast dishes also tend to be served in smaller portions than the company’s lunch and dinner options.
Freshly customer service is also well organized, helpful and willing to answer any questions about your plan (and to offer suggestions about what plan would best suit your needs.)
Additionally, the Freshly website is constantly updated, so you can check on menus, your individual account and read up on any additions to the Freshly menu.
Their customer service reps are easily accessible via text message or phone and are quick to offer you credits if you aren’t satisfied with a particular meal.
The text support option is extremely fast and detailed and you can readily reach a representative to ask questions, get nutritional info and provide feedback.
Remember, if you have any questions about your order, you can always reach out to the Freshly’s super helpful customer service team.
We honestly found them to be one of the most helpful teams we’ve ever contacted.
