Des Moines Meal Delivery

USA Today says the Iowa State Fair is one of the best things to do in the entire United States. Isn’t it nice having world-class attractions in your backyard? At Fresh n’ Lean, we’ve taken that same spirit to meal delivery. We deliver a weekly menu of delicious, seasonal meals right to your door. It’s no wonder people are calling us the future of fast food.

Prepared Meal Service

Every four years, the nation looks to Des Moines as Presidential candidates tour, debate and make all kinds of lofty promises during the Iowa caucuses. We think this city is pretty special as well. That’s why we’re proud to deliver USDA Organic, non-GMO, gluten-free meals that are chef-prepared and delivered fresh. Dishes like our Caper Aioli Sustainable Salmon With Brown Rice and Sesame Grass Fed Beef With Spaghetti Squash celebrate the tastes of this region.

Save Time, But Don’t Compromise Taste

It doesn’t take an insurance adjuster or financial whiz to figure out that Fresh n’ Lean is a great value for your taste buds, your body and your wallet. (Though the Hartford of the West has no shortage of smartypants, of course!) All our meals are prepared fresh from locally grown, whole food ingredients. Our nutrient-dense food is made with love in California, in our USDA-certified kitchen facility.

Everyone’s a Chef

Sure, Des Moines has an incredible theatre, comedy and performing arts scene. But preparing your Fresh n’ Lean meals is never a big production. Delivery is always fast and free. Getting your meal ready to eat couldn’t be easier or more convenient — all you have to do is heat for 3 minutes and enjoy. No cooking or prep required!

So Many Options. You’ll Never be Bored!

Everyone loves Bauder’s — who can pass up the nostalgia value, the incredible sandwiches and the out-of-this-world malts? But you can’t indulge every day. When you’re looking to enjoy prepared vegan meals in Des Moines, we’re your go-to. Same is true for our other options — we offer a variety of different menus, so you can enjoy keto food in Iowa, as well as paleo and low-carb, too.

Delivery All Over Des Moines

The Downtown Farmers Market is admired even outside the state — proving the value of local and sustainable farming practices. We think green, too. You’ll notice that we use eco-friendly packaging. Plus, our meals are made with responsibly raised meat like wild-caught seafood and cage-free chicken that’s free of hormones or antibiotics. Our food is prepared using Certified Humane practices.

What Do You Want to Eat Today?

Whether you’re participating in RAGBRAI, swimming at Big Creek, driving a go-kart at Sleepy Hollow or something else — you need to keep your energy up! Our dietitian-approved menu features meals served in satisfying meal portions. Everything has balanced macros. Plus, you can add on snacks and bulk sides whenever you need.

Keep it Easy and Flexible

Sure, people may flock to Des Moines to see the 23-karat gold leaf and copper-topped domes of the Capitol Building … but we know that all Iowans need to eat well, no matter where they call home. We’ve got you covered! We deliver everywhere. That means we offer meal prep delivery in Cedar Rapids, Davenport, Sioux City, Iowa City, Waterloo, Ames, Council Bluffs — you name it!

Stop, Go, Adjust -- The Choice is Yours

Living in DSM is all about options. Even the grocery store separates out pork that’s from Iowa versus the “non-Iowa” variety. We think you deserve tons of choices in what to eat, too. That’s why we’re so flexible — you can always pause, cancel or customize your meal plan at any time.
