• fresh n’ lean: healthy vegan home delivery in LA

    July 15th, 2011quarrygirldelivery

    being a vegan can be rough. don’t get me wrong, there are tons of meatless restaurants to choose from here in los angeles, and tons of specialty stores for animal-free groceries…it’s just that sometimes we don’t have time to cook, and we want a healthy meal without all the empty calories of highly evolved vegan junk food. enter fresh n’ lean.

    fresh n’ lean is an healthy/weight loss weekly meal plan in LA that doesn’t sacrifice taste for nutritional goodness. they hooked us up with a bundle of their dishes for review, and we enjoyed all of them. (and we aren’t the only ones, veggywood is a fresh n’ lean fan as well.) plus as an added bonus, QUARRYGIRL READERS GET 1 DAY OF FRESH N’ LEAN MEALS FOR FREE when trying the service out for a week. boom!

    the whole mantra at fresh n’ lean is: weight loss and health w/o calorie counting. their food is basically all wholesome stuff made with good ingredients, so you can hit all your nutritional stats, eat as much as you want, and not worry about weight gain or sluggishness. sounds good to me!

    we were super impressed with our fresh n’ lean haul which included lots of their signature dishes. the quinoa with roasted vegetables was tasty, according to my husband (i didn’t go near it because it came with roasted bell peppers!). the lentil stew was hearty and flavorful…

    the granola was super nutty and sweet…

    the vegan meatloaf was wonderful, definitely one of fresh n’ lean’s staples…

    made from cauliflower, sundried tomatoes, olives and mushrooms, this loaf was a cornucopia of flavors. it heat up pretty well in the oven and had a crumbly consistency.

    lastly, my favorite dish of all, kabucha and mushroom risotto…

    this stuff was amazing! so creamy and delicious with chunky mushrooms. i could eat it everyday.

    the fresh n’ lean delivery service works on a five day plan (monday-through friday), with meals being delivered on monday morning. they’re all packaged and vacuum sealed, always fresh and never frozen. the plan is around $25-35 per day for 3 meals, which seems like a pretty good deal to me. don’t forget to mention quarrygirl when you order and get one day of meals for free!

  • So great to see a meal delivery service that’s vegan and health conscious. I would love to have my own version of something like this one day. Thanks for letting us know!

    What an idiotic comment–what I meant to write was that it’s great it seems so healthy while also looking quite appetizing [Need another soy latte this afternoon, my brain’s still asleep:p]

  • I can’t wait to try this out! I loved getting the Rawvolution box but it was hard to make it to the west side to pick it up. I have been looking around for some other options so this was great timing!
