I’m writing this on Monday, August 15th. 4 days into a (free) trial of The Fresh Diet. It’s a Monday morning and for the first time in forever I had a healthy and delicious Monday morning breakfast (portabello egg bake – seriously YUM).
I’m also stuffed. I’ve figured out that these healthy/balanced meals are actually more filling than my normal carb heavy diet. I guess this is something healthy people already know? So much so that I end each day with at least one of my snacks/meals uneaten. AND, I’ve lost 3 lbs since Thursday (yes, really). My longtime readers know that I’ve been struggling a bit with my weight for the past 6-9 months-ish, so this is kinda a big deal.
So, here’s the deal with Fresh Diet: I went online last week and let them know my food allergies (of which I have a few), likes and dislikes, and selected meals that looked good. Every morning I wake up to find a bag full of fresh healthy meals outside my door. Pretty much my dream come true. No hassle, no stress and no waste (my fridge is usually full of moldy leftovers). Just a couple of minutes in the microwave and poof – healthy meal. No counting calories or points (something I suck at). No measuring or weighing. So easy that even I can do it.
At first, I thought the meals were too small. But after a day, my body adjusted. I was used to starting the day with a big bowl of gluten-free cereal, snacking all day, having big bowls of gluten-free pasta for dinner… and yes I’m doing a gluten free version of fresh diet.
I’m babbling, sorry. It’s just that I’m really excited about this. And super-excited that I had the opportunity to try it out. I really feel like it got me on a fresh start for fall. Got me out of my old rut and into better habits.
The lovely folks at Fresh Diet are offering a great deal for my readers: Buy One Week, Get Your Next Week 50% off. Your daily meal plan will include 3 meals, 2 snacks and delivery, which honestly is a LOT of food. The promo code to redeem this offer is “single.”
