We have been using Fresh Prep to ease back in to the Fall and Back To School schedules this past month. There are so many great things about it, it really does make weeknight dinners so much easier, and I’ll share my favourite recipes with you below, but first,

HOW IT WORKS
Every week you choose which meals you want for the week on their website. They make it easy to use, very clear to see what the dish is, even the full recipe is shown along with beautiful photos.
You know exactly what you’ve ordered and what your delivery day is (in my neighborhood, its Tuesdays) and how much you’ve spent.
The day of delivery, they text you to let you know when it’s on it’s way. It’s in a cooler bag with an ice pack and the meat is frozen, so it’s okay to let it sit on your doorstep for a while. Next week, they’ll remind you to leave last week’s cooler bag out for pick up!
My Favourite Recipe:
The Chicken + Mushroom Risotto
THE SERVINGS ARE LARGE
We were ordering 4-servings of each menu because we are a family of five. But the servings are huge, and my girls are picky eaters, so we had a lot of leftovers. I learned to order only two servings and it worked out perfectly.
ALLOW FOR EXTRA TIME
Most of the meals I made stated they would take 30 minutes to prepare, but they all took longer than that. I would say prepare ahead of time by reading through the recipe when the food arrives so you’ll have a general idea of how long it will take YOU.
PREPARE FOR ANY MISSING INGREDIENTS
The only items generally not included in the delivery is butter and olive oil. But make sure you have pots, pans and utensils, of course! I found that a few recipes called for a lot of pots.
A few of the other dishes I received and prepared:
Mushroom Linguine (Recipe)
Butternut Squash Stuffed Shells + Brussel Sprouts (recipe)
Thai Style Turkey + Coconut Rice (recipe)
Beef Pad Thai (recipe)
What I loved THE MOST about having FreshPrep delivered was that I didn’t have to think about what I was making for dinner, I didn’t have to do the big shop for all of the ingredients, and it made my week EASIER.
PLEASE go try it, and see for yourself!
