Meal Delivery for One Person: Debbie Macrae’s Fresh N Lean Review

Meal delivery for one person is a convenient option for singles. It provides access to healthy, delicious meals, with no time spent in the kitchen.


If you’re single, meal delivery for one person is an option worth considering. You’ll have access to nutritious meal options made with fresh ingredients, with no cooking and no cleanup. Here’s what Fresh N Lean subscriber Debbie Macrae had to say about her experience with our company’s meal delivery service. 

If you’re single with a busy, active lifestyle, cooking may seem like more trouble than it’s worth.     

Fortunately, meal delivery services can lend a helping hand. These companies can simplify meal planning and meal prep for busy singles.

The list of companies providing services in this area is vast; it includes names like Daily Harvest, Home Bistro, Home Chef, Green Chef, Sun Basket and Territory Foods. The services differ from one company to the next. For example, some companies provide meal kit delivery that may require cooking and meal assembly. Others provide precooked meals that are good to go after you’ve warmed them for a minute or two in the microwave. 

So, what’s the best meal delivery service for your needs? Many people prefer the convenience of having prepared meal options that require no cooking and meal prep. If precooked meals sound like a good idea, consider Fresh N Lean. Our precooked meals include organic ingredients, and they’re chef-prepared and dietician-approved. We don’t just offer you a gourmet meal that tastes great; each delicious meal on our menu is also a healthy meal that can help you reach your fitness and wellness goals. 

Best meal delivery for one person

Sometimes customer reviews can help you find the best meal option for your needs. Debbie Macrae was looking for a service that provides healthy meal delivery for one person, and she chose Fresh N Lean. She wanted a plan to offer one fresh meal after the next, and she didn’t want to worry about cooking or following a recipe. Here’s what she had to say about our food and our service. 

Debbie, thanks for being part of the Fresh N Lean family! How long have you been with our service? 

Just over a year, I think.

Why did you decide to subscribe to a meal delivery service? 

I was done cooking after 20 years — my kids were doing their own thing meal-wise, and I was tired of trying to eat low-carb and healthy on my own. 

What made you choose Fresh N Lean specifically? 

I did a lot of research. Finally, I read a blog from someone who tried all of the top prepped meal services and recommended Fresh N Lean based on the quality of food and serving size. I also ruled out any services requiring prep or special ovens like Tovala.

What are your health goals, and how does Fresh N Lean’s meal delivery service support your objectives? 

I had already lost weight on a very low-carb, low-fat diet and needed to find a plan with low carbs and moderate fat content. I also wanted to eat fresh, sustainable, free-range and grass-fed.  

Which meal plan did you choose and why? 

I chose Paleo because of the reasons I listed above. This plan allows me to maintain my perfect weight! It includes complex carbs like sweet potatoes — no pasta and grains. Although I love pasta and grains, I need to avoid those carbs in daily meals and save them for eating out. I add steamed chopped kale to every meal to get my veggie fix.

For you, what are the most significant benefits of having your meals delivered? 

I enjoy healthy eating while maintaining my diet needs without any planning — I look forward to eating now!

Has eating a diet based on Fresh N Lean meals changed how you feel physically and mentally? 

The portions are perfect — I feel full and satiated after eating dinner without needing more. And I look forward to eating dinner every night by myself (with my dogs) — I arrange my meals when I first get them to eat a different protein every night. I miss my Fresh N Lean dinner ritual when I go out to eat!

Is there any advice or encouragement you’d like to share with our readers? 

Don’t spend your hard-earned money on a bunch of cheap carbs — the protein variety Fresh N Lean offers is amazing! You can always add veggies and carbs easily if you want to — just microwave your Fresh N Lean meal, then dump your pre-steamed (microwaved) veggies on top! For example, I microwave the seafood dishes for only 2 minutes and chicken or beef for 2.25 minutes — this makes it perfectly heated without overcooking. Yum!
