One of my new year goals was to eat a little cleaner. It is not hard for me given that I consume mostly junk. I am also getting sick of eating out. Cooking up a meal in the evening is not particularly enticing given that my wife and I would be dead tired from work. So, I turned my attention to ready made meal prep. These are meals that are pre-prepared/pre-cooked and sealed for future consumption. All you have to do is reheat. Fresher was the first I tried and I have taken over 25 meals since.
- Tasty. The food tastes great. I had my doubts about reheating meals but was pleasantly surprised that the food tasted as if it was just cooked.
- Works for a non-veggie person. I do not eat most vegetables but many of Fresher’s options work for me. A couple of meals standout – Handformed Swedish Meatballs in Guilt Free Beef Gravy, 72-Hour Sous Vide Australian Pasture-Fed Brisket, Slow Cooked Beef Cheek Carb-Free Burger, and Mexican Chipotle Pulled Chicken really stand out for me. If you hate veggies like me, give these a shot. Simple vegetables cooked a manner that fit my very limited palate.
- Mostly healthy. As it should be. Calorie count is on the low side with the highest for each dish topping out at around 600 kcal. But sodium can be a little high for a handful for dishes. I like how Fresher is very upfront on the ingredients and nutritional info.
- Convenient. Basically two steps. Defrost for 12 hours prior to consumption. Then, microwave for 2.75 minutes. Done. Real easy to clean up as well.
- Slightly costly. Meals average at around S$12 which is on the high side but you get what you pay for.
- Some delays. Some dishes were delayed due to stock issues. But customer service was top notch in rectifying the issue.
I really like what I am tasting so far and see myself going back to Fresher pretty often. Fresher is available online direct from their site.
