Fresh Prep Product Review

Living in such a fast-paced world, it’s hard to admit that Canadians are spending less time cooking at home and turning to the convenience of delivery like meal kits. Online-food delivery platforms have become immensely popular given the amount of options that cater to every individual’s dietary restriction. Fresh Prep is Vancouver-based company that delivers fresh recipe ingredients straight to your doorstep so you can cook delicious, quick, and healthy meals at home. Their online food-delivery platform allows you to select a range of recipes ranging from plant-based diets to ethnic recipes from time to time. All meals are meticulously created offering nutritious meals low in fat and sodium content. They source local (often organic) ingredients for their recipes, too!

Through their website, you can personalize your taste preferences from choice of protein, gluten-free, dairy-free, and vegetarian options. The menu changes on a weekly basis with a few permanent favourites that are mostly vegetarian based. The process is super simple: you sign up, select your meals of the week that interest you, input your preferred delivery date, and once you receive your package, you are pretty much good to go. You can stop your subscription any time.

In terms of delivery, they recently expanded to the Tri-Cities area so I was able to have it delivered to my boyfriend’s place. The company will send you a text message enabling you to track when the driver will be arriving. Depending on where you live, delivery dates may vary. I was only able to select either Sunday or Wednesday to have my package delivered.

Freshprep were kind enough to offer me complimentary meals for this week. When I first opened the package, I was absolutely thrilled! The meals were separated in two separate brown bags and came pre-portioned in insulated packaging along with step-by-step instructions.

Please do note that meals are prepared in an environment containing tree nuts, peanuts, fish, shellfish, dairy, soy, eggs, and wheat. Though best practices are used when preparing the meal, inadvertent cross-contamination may occur.

I was in charge of washing, coring, and cutting up the vegetables while my boyfriend cooked the turkey meat.

After you finish cutting up the vegetables, you just throw them on a baking sheet and drizzle oil, salt and pepper, and their spice blend seasoning. Luckily, the company already had the red onion all cut up which saved us time. The only time consuming part was having to wait for the oven to reach 450°F

The only ingredients we were in charge of providing for this meal were oil, salt, and pepper.

And once you assemble everything together…

Turkey Fajitas with Lime Crema and Roasted Bell Peppers

Overall, the turkey fajitas were pretty delicious. My boyfriend and I both agree that the meat would have tasted better if it were marinated for a bit before cooking it in the pan as the seasoning didn’t stick too well during the process. As promised, the cooking time only took 30 minutes! I definitely see myself recreating this recipe in the future using different types of meat like chicken or beef.
We will be doing our second recipe within the next day or two so stay tuned for that 🙂
Disclosure: This was a complimentary meal provided in exchange for an honest review , but all opinions are based on my own personal experience.
