Have You Heard of "Fresh Dish"...?

The premise behind this company is that healthy, flavorful meals can be made quickly (30 minutes or less) and right in your own kitchen.

Actually, I'm not sure if that's their premise. But based on my experience with them, it seems like it should be.

Based in Los Angeles, Fresh Dish offers an always-changing menu of entrees to choose from. Simply create an account and make your meal selections. Once you've placed your order, the ingredients typically arrive the following Tuesday and are delivered in a temperature controlled package. If you're not planning on cooking your meal that night, just make sure to store your packages in the refrigerator until the "use by" date.

Each package includes up to four servings.

I've made a few Fresh Dish meals and can't say enough good things about them. First, and most importantly, the ingredients are fresh and individually portioned so you know exactly how much of each item you're adding to your meal. Secondly, the recipes are super easy to follow and practically foolproof. Thirdly, the meals were very flavorful and filling and didn't leave us feeling weighed down or heavy. Considering how much of a non-chef I am, it was surprising how "professional" everything turned out. I should also mention that Fresh Dish's customer service is very helpful. I contacted them regarding a question about one of my meals and had no problem getting an answer.


Oven Roasted Salmon




 I may or may not have accidentally overcooked the zucchini.


Gorgonzola & Mushroom Risotto w/ Pear & Pomegranate Salad








If you:

A) Have a New Years resolution to eat healthier
B) Wish you cooked at home more, but don't know what to make
C) Want to impress someone with your home-cooked meal
D) Don't have time to plan a meal and buy groceries

Then Fresh Dish is ideal for you. For a fresh and healthy meal cooked in the comfort of your own home (that cost as little as $8 per meal), it's definitely worth a try. Check it out and let me know what you think.

Make sure to mention this blog when you place your order.

Just kidding. They have no idea who I am.

Fresh Dish is currently offered in most of California and select regions of Arizona and Nevada. Word on the street is, they will be expanding to the east coast in the next few weeks.

(I was not compensated in any way for this post. I just like eating good food and telling everyone about it.)

Boner'ppetite!

Wow! Thanks for sharing! I realize that I need to eat more healthier dishes as well. My client wants me to try more dishes rather than just eating American food all the time. She told me to try Thai food and Ethiopian food.

I'll give it a shot!

They can't offer it in Utah yet. Every recipe here has to have one can of cream of mushroom soup by law.

I love how real you are. That's one of my favorite things about your blog!

Anyways, I really like this idea. However, I wonder if it's sustainable. It seems like the prices are great right now with all the deals, but I wonder if it's going to get prohibitively expensive without them.

I'd love to see more if you have any more to say. For example, is the salmon you got a family sized pack? I know I have enough time to cook now... but I'm really considering something like this for my first few months of work when I know I'll be super busy.
