- Freshly has shut its doors, so we had to find an alternative
- Luckily, we found Home Chef’s excellent fully-customizable, Oven-Ready meals
Keep reading to see why Home Chef is our new go-to for convenient meals:
Cooking fresh, delicious meals on a daily basis is more challenging than it may sound. First, you need to search for recipes, write grocery lists, shop for ingredients, chop the veggies, measure everything – the list goes on!
It’s no wonder people flocked to Freshly in droves. Freshly was a popular meal delivery service that made dinner routines much easier, but with Freshly shuttering its online business in December, we were forced to find an alternative.
We scoured the internet and checked the various meal delivery services out there and found that Home Chef is the best. With fully-customizable meals to fit your individual needs and Oven-Ready options that require little prep, they’re truly next-level.
Here’s everything we liked about Freshly and how Home Chef does it better:
Freshly meals came fully prepared, pre-portioned, and ready to enjoy in only 3 minutes. We simply popped the meals in the microwave, and done! That said, this convenience was also a major problem with Freshly. Their meals were low grade quality and were just as bland and bad as the frozen burritos buried in our freezers.
With Home Chef, you get fresh and nutritious meals. Simply choose from 30+ new dishes each week and they’ll deliver a box with pre-portioned ingredients and easy-to-follow recipe cards on your doorstep. Some meals can be ready in only 15 minutes.
Don’t feel like cooking? Home Chef has Oven-Ready meals that barely require any preparation. All you have to do is assemble the ingredients in the oven-safe tray that comes with your order and pop it in the oven. Or choose from their Fast & Fresh meals that can be cooked in the oven or microwave for extra convenience.
Freshly’s weekly menu featured a few more selections, but their meals weren’t customizable. If you’re a pescetarian, your options were limited. And their dishes were really simple and boring like their Philly-ish Cheesesteak or Turkey Chili Bowl.
On the other hand, Home Chef’s meals allow you to swap out your favorite protein with options like Impossible Burger, steak strips, shrimp, salmon filets, antibiotic-free, skinless chicken breasts, and much more.
Let’s just say when we saw the mouth-watering dishes Home Chef offers like Panko-Crusted Mahi-Mahi with Creamy Lemon Sauceand Sweet Potatoes and Pork Medallions with Chimichurri Butter and Roasted Fingerling Potatoes, there was no going back.
Frankly, some Freshly meals were bland and mushy. After trying Home Chef we realized what a difference taste and quality really make, especially when it comes to food.
Home Chef recipes are chef-curated and come with exciting sauces and spices that add zest to your dinners. Minimal prep makes Home Chef absolutely worth it. Home Chef meals start at only $9.99 a serving, and with their new customer offer, you can get 16 free meals!
