How Freshly Works
To start receiving Freshly meals, you’ll first select how many weekly meals you want. You can select from 4 to 12 meals per week. Then, you’ll be prompted to choose a delivery day that best fits your schedule. Once you’ve determined when you want your meals delivered you’ll be asked to select your meals from among a 30+ meal menu. You can add any meals you want to try, then from there all you have to do is checkout and pay.

What Else You Should Know About Freshly
Freshly appears to be one of the most well-rounded meal subscription services we could find. Although its ingredients aren’t organic like some other brands, it still sources its meals from clean ingredients and creates meals that are not only delicious but will keep most customers fuller for longer than most other subscriptions. Freshly also seems to offer one of the largest menus to select weekly meals from compared to other pre-made meal subscription boxes.
Is Freshly Worth It?
If you’re looking to reduce time spent cooking and also want to indulge in some hearty meals, Freshly might be the right subscription for you. On the other hand, if you don’t mind paying additional costs associated with strictly organic ingredients or need more options for your dietary preferences, then you may want to choose another meal subscription.
How Freshly Compares to Other Top Meal Subscriptions
Freshly VS Factor: Factor is slightly more expensive, starting at $11 per meal. However, the higher cost is associated with more diet-specific meal options, such as those for keto or 100% vegan meals. It also offers optional snacks and drinks as well, which is something that Freshly does not do. On the contrary, Freshly starts at around $9 per meal and offers fewer options for people with stricter diets but is a great option for customers who are looking to save a little more money on weekly pre-made subscriptions and want to eat foods that have a higher caloric value.
Freshly VS Trifecta: Trifecta’s vegan and vegetarian meals start at $12.99 whereas its animal-sourced meals start at $15.99. It is more expensive than Freshly but it’s the best pre-made meal subscription for athletes, people looking to lose weight, or individuals who want to eat cleaner, practically 100% organic meals. If you’re not concerned with eating mostly organic meals that are stricter in portion sizes and are looking to save a bit of money each week, Freshly may be the better option.
Freshly VS Sakara Life: One of Freshly's weaknesses is that it fails to offer a wide variety of vegetarian or vegan meals. Sakara, on the other hand, is 100% dedicated to this niche - BUT, it starts at $28.90 per meal. Yes, that means Sakara is nearly 4X more expensive per meal. If that works for you, then Sakara is fully focussed on creating the healthiest plant-based meals possible, sourced from organic ingredients. It also pairs its meals with teas and personal coaching to enhance each meal’s overall health benefits and promote longevity.
