March officially marks the one-year anniversary of working from home and by now, most of us have hit that quarantine wall. We’ve started new routines and adopted new habits to manage both work and life, but one thing still remains annoying, cooking. Luckily, Freshly is coming to the rescue.

There are so many added layers to get to the final product. The grocery shopping, the slicing and dicing, the actual cooking, the dishes, packing leftovers, etc. It’s exhausting and given that, we’re all guilty of skipping lunch or going overboard on takeout (ahem Chipotle).

A recent survey of 2000 Americans conducted by ready-made meal delivery service Freshly revealed:

  • 43% of people attempted cooking healthier meals or meal prepping during the pandemic
  • 14% of people ditched this habit in the first month of attempting it
  • 42% of people found the cleaning of extra pots and pans to be even more work

Freshly is making our work from home life a little easier with easy-to-eat single-serve packages, slashing prep and cook time down to just 3 minutes!

Who is Freshly again?

With so many meal prepping services it’s hard to keep up but, Freshly is a weekly subscription service delivering ready-to-eat, fresh (not frozen), chef-cooked meals that can be heated and served in minutes – NO cooking required.

Unlike meal kits, all you need is a microwave, fork, and plate (optional) to get a satisfying lunch or dinner on the table (or desk).

They have a rotating menu of 35+ meals featuring better-for-you ingredients swaps with meals that are gluten-free and single-serve for portion control. SO. MANY. OPTIONS.
