Freshly Review - Day 1 - Initial Impressions

So, with my health being so poor for so long, but now good enough for my spouse to go back to classes, we've decided to give Freshly a try.

If you aren't familiar, they are one of these new trends of  "meal box plans" by mail.  BlueApron and Plated are the more well-known, but they send you ingredients which you then have to cook.  Since in my case, the standing-long-enough-to-cook is the issue, we opted for Freshly, which is ready-made meals which you just have to heat up in the microwave.  You can choose from 6, 9, 12, or 21 meals.  We opted for 6 meals to give it a try before we committed to any more.  The meals aren't exactly "super cheap" (ranging from $10.75-$11.50 per serving depending on how many you get), but it's about equivalent to fast food, and looks to be a LOT healthier.  I do feel it's a tad overpriced for the serving sizes at full price, but not so much that it is a deal breaker by any means.

Muffin Frittata Cups

These little cupcake frittatas are amazingly versatile, and even more tasty!

They are an easy way to 'sneak' in healthy veggies – you can change out what you use depending on your tastes, the season, or just what you have on hand.  They are also easy to make in advance – either a few days, kept in a bag in the fridge, or several weeks frozen!  Just pop them in the microwave when you're ready to eat them.

Delicious, nutritious, and made in advance; it just doesn't get much better than that.
