freschef offers a wide range of meals that are fully all cleaned and prepared. All you have to do is cut open the packages and follow the directions.
The clear packaging of freschef meals offer consumers transparency into the quality of the ingredients they are going to purchase. The nutrition information for EACH part of the meal is displayed on the back of each container (love that I can leave avoid my allergen of tree nuts without missing out on the whole meal)! Additionally, the directions are easily visible on the side of each meal so you can see what is all entailed in making each freschef meal.
Now, you may be wondering why this is important to me, especially given the meals are prepared for you…
freschef meals support our lifestyle; with sports and dance class three nights a week (I can almost here the “I hear ya sister!” from you as you read), time is precious. So, when we have dance class for Princess A right after school but are home shortly after 5pm, making Steak au Poivre with a few extra dishes is totally fine. However, when we get home after 6 from Mr. C’s baseball, I would choose a meal with few dishes to clean up. Something like Black Bean Turkey Chili possibly.
The great thing is that unless we are getting in the door at 7, I can make a freschef meal instead of running through the drive through! The time savings in preparation of a meal is a huge one. The meats are trimmed, vegetables are cleaned, and sauces are made.
15 minutes later, we made the sauce. I will not tell you too much, but just let me say this.Butter…onions…thickened…AMAZING!Here is a picture of my meal to show you the doneness of the steak. Again something I was rather skeptical of. You all know how bad steak can just never cook right….not the case at all with freschef. The portions were perfect and the meal was incredible, especially for the price.
freschef meals are truly a new concept in my opinions and I am thrilled to have these meals as a healthy option for our family. Week days are cram packed and to know I can purchase these meals for such a low price is a life saver. I can say without reservation that freschef meals will be a regular item for our family.

Disclosure: freschef and Fry’s hosted a lunch for us to test these meals and learn about them. I received two meals to test at home. All opinions are my own as they always are.
