Fresh and Seasonal Ingredients from Our Kitchen

At Fresh n’ Lean, we pride ourselves on delivering the best fresh, local, and organic meals right to your doorstep. We use seasonal ingredients to make sure our meals have optimal flavor!

Have you ever had the feeling of wishing that the week was already over when it’s actually only Wednesday? You want to disappear, but right when you’re about to drop off the radar, everyone seems to all of a sudden need something from you. That girlfriend that ghosted you six months prior? She had a breakup and needs a shoulder to cry on. Your in-laws call you up saying that they’re in town and need a place to crash.

It’s one of those weeks, where you want to stay in Lululemon leggings, hide under a baseball cap, and hibernate. After non-stop conference calls and constant dialing of your sitter to see if she has extra time to help out this week, you can’t seem to catch a break.

Functioning is a lot to ask of you, and on top of that, whipping up meals for the family sounds like a chore times two. Cue the Hunger Games. You get the side eye from your husband (almost aggressively) wondering if you’ve left everyone out to starve.

The temptation to Postmates every meal is high, but instead of ordering up every individual meal each time, save yourself the time and hassle. Consult Fresh n’ Lean for all of your meal prep needs. You’ll have every meal set and ready to go. No preparation needed.

Feeling lazy or having an off week? Need to feed some guests, but don’t have enough time to run to Whole Foods?

Not only do you need food that’s fast and easy, but healthy obviously sits at the top of the list! We selectively make our meals from the freshest and most seasonal ingredients to ensure that we have your cooking duty covered until you’re back on your feet.

Here’s a breakdown of the seasonal ingredients that you get when you order meals from our menu.

Cherry Tomatoes

That’s right — they’re officially a fruit and not a vegetable. Cherry tomatoes make the perfect add-on to any dish, whether a salad or quinoa, so you can expect to get your nutrients when you eat these! They’re packed with Vitamin B-6, which helps keep your blood healthy, so they’re not only good for your taste buds, but for your body, too!

Purple Cabbage

A boost of fiber is not only so necessary for your weight-loss plan, but a healthy dose for every day for the family! You’ll be thankful for purple cabbage, which is found in our meals and is packed with fiber to help to get things going and assist with the waste elimination process if you will.

Sweet Potatoes

Is it fall yet? Sweet potatoes will have the kids and yourself reminiscing on Halloween and Thanksgiving. They’re rich in beta-carotene, antioxidants, vitamin A, C, E, B6, and will help you maintain a healthy blood pressure.

Broccoli

Make sure you have a toothpick or floss nearby. Broccoli is delicious but can be known to cause some embarrassing moments. After your broccoli-filled lunch, take a look in the mirror before going in to meet with your manager. They are, however, delicious and good for you! Broccoli is rich in folate, vitamin C, beta-carotene, and potassium. They also contain a good amount of plant-based protein.

Brussels Sprouts

You may recognize these as being your favorite appetizer at any place with “bar food.” It’s your go-to wine pairing during Happy Hour. Brussels sprouts are high in vitamin K, vitamin C, and dietary fiber.

Kale

There’s something about kale that can make you feel like a superior being as everyone is munching on pizza or fried foods. Our meals contain kale, which has more iron than beef, more calcium than milk, and ten times more vitamin C than spinach. It is high in vitamins A, C, and K, so you’ll be getting your healthy dosage for the day when you choose to eat kale.

Cauliflower

We understand your obsession with the Trader Joe’s mashed cauliflower. It’s way better than rice and can be transformed into so many things to give you the illusion that you’re eating carbs when you’re not. Cauliflower, found in our meals, is an excellent source of folate, vitamin B, vitamin K, and omega-3 fatty acids.

Zucchini

Who doesn’t love a good vegan zucchini pasta? Zucchini contains a high source of antioxidants and vitamin C (one medium zucchini has more than 50% of your daily vitamin C needs)and contains an energizing source of vitamin B.
