What’s Unique About Freshly?

Freshly is focused on redesigning what we put in our bodies. All of the Freshly menu options are gluten-free, and many of them are paleo-inspired as well. This means no common snack food fixes like bread, crackers, cakes or pastries. Freshly also works to reduce the amount of unhealthy food options we opt for, such as deep fried or battered foods, pasta, couscous and pizza. They believe that flavorful food should be easy and healthy. 

Meals are cooked using the most natural options, which include dairy, fresh fish, meats and seafood, all kinds of seasonal vegetables and fruit, quinoa, rice, potatoes, beans, and legumes. It’s all delivered fresh, not frozen, and always delicious.

Freshly has put a whole lot of research into what makes food healthy and nutritious. Simply put, the core focus is:

  • Limiting the amount of sugar and avoiding artificial sweeteners
  • Focusing on nutrient-dense, whole ingredients
  • Eliminating heavily processed foods and oils

Environmentally Conscious

Freshly works hard to ensure it has as little an impact as possible on the environment. Here are some of the practices put into place to reduce waste:

  • Outer packaging made from biodegradable recycled denim insulation, and never styrofoam.
  • Inner containers including all paper, plastic and cardboard is fully recyclable.
  • Less food waste, as all food is prepared with the exact portions each person needs.
