Fresh n Lean~Healthy Meals That Are Allergy Friendly

A meal delivery service with healthy meals for almost any diet!


          I received several meals to facilitate this review.

 There are days that I just don't feel like cooking but I still want to eat a healthy meal. Sure I could eat out or grab something to go but that can be costly and it is hard to find places that have healthy meals that are plant-based and made without dairy. Why do all restaurants think vegans always want quinoa? I am sure my friends who eat Paleo or Keto have the same frustrations. So I am glad that I discovered a healthy and delicious meal service that an expansive menu of organic meals that are plant-based. They also have options for meat eaters, low carb, and Paleo so I can get meals for the whole family.


  Why do all restaurants think vegans always want quinoa?

 I am sure my friends who eat Paleo or Keto have the same frustrations. Eating out is not always fun when you have dairy issues as you don't want to be that person who is a pain but coughing all night is also no fun. My husband used to manage restaurants and hated the special orders but after seeing me struggle with dairy issues he now says, "you need to be the pain!" I am glad that I can get healthy organic meals delivered to my house that are dairy free. These meals are made from scratch also! When Fresh n Lean reached out to me and asked me if I wanted to try their meal box service, I went to their website and was amazed at all the options of meals that I could select from. A couple of months ago I checked out a different meal subscription and they only had one meal that was dairy free. So I really liked that Fresh n Lean had a huge menu of meals that I could enjoy., in fact, all their meals are dairy free. Even the ones with meat and seafood are dairy free. I do love seafood and eat fish regularly.


  • Loaded in nutrients. High in fiber and plant-based proteins.
  • Made with organic vegetables and grains.
  • Gluten-free, soy free and dairy free.
  • Made-from-scratch & delivered fresh in vacuum sealed trays.



Fresh meals & not frozen


 I loved that the meals were fresh, (not frozen) and arrive in a microwave and oven safe container that you can take with you to eat almost anywhere. I did not even have to be home when the meals were delivered as they arrived in a cooler packed with ice packs. The meals were plenty cold when I opened up the cooler. I loved that I could reuse the cooler and ice packs. 

Delicious. Convenient. Delivered.


  I was sent 6 meals in all. Two ION Performance Paleo (Low-Carb), two Standard Plant-Based, and two breakfast meals. The Paleo meals had seafood in them. The meals all looked so delicious and I could not wait to try them for dinner. The meals stacked nicely in my fridge too. I could see these meals being easy for my husband to take to work for lunch.

Natural. Fresh. Organic.

 I really loved that the ingredients in the meals were listed on the trays and that they were natural, nutrient-rich, ingredients that I would use when I cooked. Fresh n Lean also does not use processed or frozen ingredients. They also never use preservatives. The produce in the meals are always fresh and organic and is not over-cooked in oil. I like my veggies with just a bit of salt and hate when veggies are drowning in butter. Thank you Fresh n Lean for making veggies how I like them and letting me decide how to season them.



Take a few bites first-see how veggies were meant to taste.

  It was hard to decide when organic meal to try first as they all looked so delicious. The Tomato Curry With Shrimp won and I cooked it when I got home from the gym. The meal did not take long to cook and was done by the time I changed out of my workout clothes. Just look at all the natural ingredients and tasty spices in this meal. This meal was so delicious and it was so hard not to share with my husband. I let my husband try some of my shrimp and he said "you should buy this more often." I really loved how crisp the vegetables were and the shrimp were moist and tender.

So many delicious meals to select

 The other meals that I received were One Pot Veggie Bowl With Salmon, Thai Sesame Quinoa With Tofu, Caramelized Onion Bowl With Sweet Potato FriesCranberry Coconut Oatmeal, and Blueberry Coconut Crumble Loaf. I just love all the fruits and veggies that are in these delicious meals. Fresh n Lean has many options for there healthy meal subscription box. You can order just lunch meals, which would be great to grab on the way out the door for work or you can order dinner meals. If you really don't want to cook, you can order breakfast, lunch, and dinner meals. All the meals can be ordered for 5 or 7 days. I really love that you can let Fresh n Lean know about allergies and your preferences so if you don't like mushooms, they will not send any meals with mushrooms in them. 

So go check out all the delicious organic meals that Fresh n Lean delivers and tell me which one you would like to try.

  2. I think meal delivery services are great for people who want to eat healthy and controls their portions. And when you work a full time job, prepping and cooking meals like this isn't always an option, it is great to have this available.

  5. I should really look into something like this. I really like that the meals were already put together and didn't need to cut veggies or meal prep. That would be so helpful to a family with small kids.
