Fresh n’ Lean offers a wide variety of recipes every single week, yet every one meets strict standards for quality with no artificial ingredients, GMOs, or gluten. All in all, the brand offers seven unique menus catered to specific eating plans, such as the Mediterranean diet, paleo, and low-carb vegan.
Not into a plan? You can also select meals à la carte with a selection of more than 100 items every week, as well as choices to purchase proteins and vegetables in bulk. Each recipe factors in macronutrients and is prepared by chefs using organic vegetables. When the fresh meals arrive, they require nothing more than a microwave, making meal prep as simple as possible.
Sign up is also a breeze; simply use the website or download the app, select how many meals you want per a day (up to three), and choose how many days a week you want service (up to seven). You then enter any allergens—egg, sesame, dairy, shellfish, tree nuts, or soy—as well as any taste preferences, like skipping red pepper or cilantro.

Sustainability & Quality: While the gel packs that keep your food cold can be repurposed, each kit does include a lot of plastic. That said, it’s BPA-free and fully recyclable. The quality certifications are definitely more impressive; meals are prepared in Anaheim, California using locally grown organic ingredients. Not only do recipes skip GMOS and gluten, but all proteins are antibiotic- and hormone-free.
