If you have been following for a while, then you know that I have been using Fresh Prep for over a year now. I often share my cooking experiences on Instagram on stories, so be sure to follow along if you don’t already (@onesmileymonkey).
I absolutely love the convenience of subscribing to a meal kit delivery service. I never have to worry about what I am making for dinner, and there is no shopping required. Forget about take-out, with Fresh Prep; each meal is home-made with fresh ingredients. All cooked at home in under 30 minutes, so easy!
Fresh Prep is a meal kit delivery service that helps busy people in Vancouver, Victoria, Nanaimo, and the Okanagan make delicious dinners in minutes, using their fresh, prepared recipe ingredients that are delivered weekly to your door. There is no meal planning, grocery shopping or ingredient prepping required. All you need to do is get the bag with ingredients from the fridge, follow the recipe and enjoy it.
Using Fresh Prep has positively changed the way our family does dinner, and below I am sharing 5 Reasons To Try Fresh Prep.
1. Fresh Prep is the best meal kit in Vancouver.
Fresh Prep prioritizes local farmers who specialize in seasonal, all-natural produce, as well as local small businesses. They also prioritize organic ingredients, and the meat they provide is free from unnecessary antibiotics and hormones, the eggs are also free-range, and their kits come with sustainably sourced seafood.
I also really like that they use re-usable insulated coolers that are picked up the next time they come to deliver your boxes. They also take back all the plastic waste to recycle it, so you are left with no mess other than compost, and they are now even offering a waste-free reusable kit option with a reusable and recyclable container. Love not having to deal with lots of wasteful packaging.
2. Spend less time meal planning.
Using Fresh Prep means I do not have to worry about planning dinner every day. It means I have extra time to do what I want. I want to spend more quality time with my family, start a new hobby, read more books. No searching for recipes, making grocery lists or going shopping for dinner ingredients means more time for ME.
With Fresh Prep, you just spend a few minutes a week picking your recipes from the week, you will then receive all your ingredients and recipe cards in their insulated cooler bags, all portioned and ready to cook each night. Yes, it is that simple.
Spend less time meal planning and more time LIVING!
3. Dinner is ready fast, and clean-up is a breeze.
Most Fresh Prep meals are often ready in just 30 minutes, and some are one-pot meals, this means dinner is always ready fast. No time spent slaving in the kitchen for hours, and you with still get delicious, home-made nutritious meals the entire family will enjoy.
On top of that, we are exploring new cuisines and using ingredients I wouldn’t usually shop for. The kids are getting exposed to all sorts of amazing ingredients, and we are eating a very varied diet.
Since there are a lot of 1 pot meals available, that just means less cleaning. A lot of the ingredients are also chopped and ready to be used, so you won’t need to clean a lot of extra cutting boards and tools. I LOVE that I don’t have to chop onions or garlic anymore.
With Fresh Prep, there is no long term commitment once you sign up. You can pause your membership on certain weeks if you are away or travelling. You choose when it’s convenient for you to receive a box and you only pay for what you will use.
I also like being able to personalize my weekly menus; I can log in the week before and select which recipes I would like to have delivered the following week — all up to me. There are always vegetarian options too.
There is also flexibility when it comes to delivery. You don’t even have to be home to accept your package. The cooler keeps the food cold until you get home.
5. A better cooking experience
I have struggled with cooking most of my life. I didn’t learn to cook until after I had kids, and I didn’t really enjoy cooking. It was never a passion, and I was stuck in a rut with the meals I was able to cook. Since we started using Fresh Prep, I noticed that I really enjoy cooking our meals a lot more. I feel like I get to enjoy the moment when I am cooking. Often, the boys help out with cooking as they like looking at the recipe and checking out the photo of the meal we are making.
Cooking is now fun at our house, and we do a lot more cooking together. All thanks to Fresh Prep, taking the stress away and making meal prep easy.
