The Best Tasting Meal Delivery: Low Calorie without Compromising Taste

FreshologyNot all food delivery services are created alike.  While we have tried and featured a variety of food delivery services, none have been able to offer actual gourmet and restaurant quality meals under the healthy calorie control label.  With Freshology, the food is beyond edible as it is actually appetizing and delicious to consume.  Diners will find themselves looking forward to the next day’s delivery as breakfast, lunch, and dinner are all freshly prepared and full of flavor.  The culinary attention on each dish is evident from its flavor, texture, and ingredients. Freshology provides gourmet calorie-controlled meals made with the finest ingredients cooked fresh and delivered to your front door every morning.  Using only antibiotic and hormone free proteins and the finest ingredients, all of their programs are healthy calorie and carb-controlled meals of lean proteins, fresh fruits, vegetables, good fats and low glycemic carbs.  “Freshology is not just a diet; it is a complete dining experience.”  Everyone out there is either looking to lose weight, maintain good health, or simply get meals in a convenient way.  With Freshology, eating right without sacrificing taste and quality is easier than ever. 

Freshology differs from other food delivery services because their balanced, portion controlled fresh and healthy food delivery service has the best tasting menus on the market.  Daily calories range from 1150-1400 calories for women and 1700-2000 calories for men.  Meals are created by their 5-Star chefs while the 28-90 day menu rotations provide a variety of options for even the most discerning palates.  They never use preservatives, freeze - dried or dehydrated ingredients in their dishes.  Their customer service team is also available 6 days a week to provide customers with information and support during the program.  Celebrity fans include Sofia Vergara, Mario Lopez, Sarah Michelle Gellar, Jennifer Lopez, Olivia Wilde, and many, many more.  Fitness maven, Jillian Michaels, entered into a partnership with Freshology to launch the Jillian Michaels Freshology Gold, designed to aid in weight loss and help individuals meet their goals.

FreshologyA healthy and low-fat favorite was the Roasted Italian Vegetable Frittata with Chicken Apple Sausage and Fresh Fruit.  This lean and protein packed frittata was light and fluffy yet mouth-watering with its diced roasted Italian vegetables.  The chicken apple sausage offered immense flavor while providing a good source of protein to start the day right.  Breakfast items include options like Orange Ricotta Pancakes with Blueberry Infused Syrup and Canadian Bacon, Chicken Sausage, Bell Pepper and Scrambled Egg Breakfast Burrito, Lemon Poppy Seed Muffin with Vanilla Yogurt and Roasted Apples, Oven-Dried Tomato and Feta Egg Stack with Fresh Oregano, Blueberry and Cream Crepes with Mixed Berry Compote and Turkey Bacon, and Sweet Grits with FreshologyCinnamon Peach Compote and Canadian Bacon.  Almost all breakfast dishes come with fresh fruit ranging blueberries and strawberries to diced honeydew and cantaloupe.  We also enjoyed the Broccoli and Cheese Quiche with Mango Chicken Sausage.  Using all egg whites, this quiche was full of protein without the fat and cholesterol while the cheese and broccoli added just the right amount of flavor and texture to this soft egg medallion.  The steamed broccoli on the side went well with the mango chicken sausage and its citrus flavor, without the greasy fat.  

Freshology offers a wide variety of options for individuals, mothers, and families.  Customers can choose between Fresh Dining ($54.95 per day plus delivery), a gourmet fresh diet meal delivery program or Fresh Lite ($44.95 per day plus delivery), a classic fare diet meal program, both designed for the purpose of weight loss and healthy living delivered daily.  Fresh Dining is highly customizable for those with allergies and specific preferences and includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack and dessert.  Fresh Lite can be customized by specific allergies and proteins and includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert.  Another fabulous option is Fresh Mommy, a diet program providing all USDA nutritional dietary requirements for pre- and postnatal women.  Since proper nutrition is essential to a healthy pregnancy and postnatal life, the menu is designed with nutrient-rich ingredients.  Freshology offers a program for busy families, called Whole Family, providing breakfast, dinner, and dessert for the entire family to enjoy together.  Their customer service team will do their best to balance between introducing new tastes and providing delicious, healthy versions of favorite dishes to the entire family. 

FreshologyFreshology lunches generally consists of salads, soups, or lean sandwiches or wraps.  A lean but tasty spin on the Mediterranean favorite pita was the Turkey Kifteh Whole Wheat Pita Pocket with Chunky Tabouli Salad.  The two turkey kifteh medallions were substantially packed with lean ground turkey and flavored nicely.  The pita pocket is packaged in a plastic bag so as to not get soggy from the rest of the dish.  All the trimmings of fresh lettuce, tomato and salsa are included to garnish your pita pocket.  The side of tabouli salad features diced cucumber, adding a satisfying crunch to the lemon and parsley salad.  The Protein Style Pork Carnitas with Corn Salad offered tender, moist carnitas over romaine lettuce and a side of corn Caesar salad.  While the salad may look small, the pork offers a good amount of protein to sustain you until dinner. Their Roasted Corn and Turkey Chowder with Side Green Salad was extremely well prepared as the chowder was not creamy and thick but freshly made with tender cubes of chicken and potato along with corn, tomatoes and veggies in a flavorful broth.  Other fabulous lunch entrees were Chipotle BBQ Chicken Salad with Jalapeno Ranch Dressing, Black Bean Quesadilla with FreshologyPoblano Cream and Spicy Mango Salad, and Grilled Stone Fruit and Smoked Moody Blue Cheese over Spinach Salad with Pomegranate Balsamic Vinaigrette.  A refreshing and light salad with great flavor and culinary attention was the Grilled Coconut Shrimp Salad with Daikon Radish, Sesame Sprinkle and Yuzu Vinaigrette.  Four plump and sweet shrimp in a light coconut glaze, sprinkled with white and black sesame seeds offered lean protein bursting with flavor, which was perfect with the crisp romaine, carrots, red bell peppers and cucumbers.  This yuzu vinaigrette was citrusy without being too sweet and made this salad spectacular.

For delivery, all meals are delivered doorstep in a black energy efficient cooler bag by 6 am.  The plastic safety seal ensures that meals have not been tampered with after delivery while an insert with a menu and heating instructions is on the side of the bag.  Ice packs in the cooler keep your meals at a regulated temperature.  At the end of each day, simply leave your empty bag with its ice packs to be picked up when the new delivery arrives in the morning.  Their Go Green containers allow customers to easily heat meals in the microwave, after removing any fruit or sauce containers.  While the black microwavable containers make heating quick and easy, keep in mind that one must cut the plastic covering to remove fruit or sauce containers and then return them to the tray after cooking.  Each meal comes with a well portioned yet satisfying dessert.  The Turtle Cookies are chewy and rich with a hint of caramel but not overly sweet.  Other delicious desserts are Smores, Sour Cherry Cobbler, Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, Banana Cream Pie and more.  One healthy and yummy dessert to highlight is the Dairy Free Cherry Cheesecake Cup, creamy yet dairy free and satisfying with a touch of fruit on top. 

FreshologyFreshology offers a range of delicious heated traditional and modern dinner entrees like Rosemary and Apple Glazed Pork Loin with Asparagus and Cauliflower Puree, Herb Crusted Turkey Medallions with Fresh Winter Squash and Roasted Tomatoes, Cuban Mojo Style Lamb w/Plantains & Sautéed Spinach, Porcini Crusted Filet Mignon with Melted Cherry Tomatoes, Pasta Frutti di Mare with Braised Fennel and Garlic White Wine Sauce, and more.  A superb entrée was the Slow Roasted Angus Beef Tenderloin with Charred Onion Crust, Baby Bok Choy, Crimini Mushrooms and Fingerling Potatoes.  While most delivery services destroy the very notion of a steak or tenderloin, FreshologyFreshology amazingly delivers a cut that is flavorful, tender and still medium rare.  Cooked to please the palate of any gourmand, this tenderloin far surpassed the expectations of a diet food delivery company as it tasted more like an entrée from a gourmet restaurant.  The bok choy was cooked just right while the roasted potatoes paired nicely with the crimini mushrooms and beef.  Freshology also does seafood right as the Lemon Dill Fish with Grilled Fennel and Artichoke Olive Ragu was light, tasty and filling.  The fish was tender, flaky and remained moist over the grilled fennel while the artichokes in their olive ragu were robust, absorbing the flavors of the briny olives and rich tomatoes.

FreshologyFreshology provides healthy and appetizing snacks daily, something to look forward to in between meals.  An extremely delicious snack anytime of the day are the Sun-Dried Tomato Hummus with Lavash Chips.  Homemade sun-dried tomato hummus is creamy, smooth and robust with flavor as it is topped with pine nuts and drizzled with olive oil.  The thin lavash chips are just the right portion to dig into this splendid snack.  Other snacks include Creamy Corn and Miso Soup with Red Curry Apples, FreshologyMango Pudding with Black Sesame Seeds and Lime Gelee, Smoked Salmon Rillette w/Whole Wheat Crostini, and Open Faced Beef Slider w/Roasted Onion “Cheese.”  Notable snacks were the Humboldt Fog Cheese with “Champagne” Jelly and Grapes and the Roasted Red Pepper & Goat Cheese Cornettes.  A generous slice of delicious blue cheese with the champagne jelly and grapes paired superbly and was an absolute delight to enjoy at home. The goat cheese cornettes were light yet savory as the goat cheese was blended with roasted red peppers, giving off some color and depth.

Freshology states on their website that diners will being to see results in a few weeks of eating their fresh gourmet meals.  While client results may vary, most lose 1-3 pounds per week afterwards.  Their consultants are more than happy to customize and personalized your program to any allergies or dislikes and always create dishes that are creative, delicious, and healthy.  Since all meals are nutritionally balanced and convenient, it is like having your own personal chef and dietitian each day.  Time efficient and stress free as this eliminate shopping, planning, cooking and cleaning.  Great for those looking to save time and money while looking and feeling their best.
