It’s a meal subscription service that delivers everything you need to make tasty and nutritious meals right to your door. This includes fresh ingredients portioned in the appropriate amounts and illustrated step-by-step recipes.
It works like this:
- You sign up online
- You choose one of their three boxes: Chef’s Box, Vegetarian Box, or Custom Box
- You choose the number of recipes (meals) you want to receive each week (2-5, depending on the box)
- You choose the number of portions you want per meal (2-4)
- Every week that you indicate that you want a box delivered, your credit card is charged. You can skip any week you don’t want a delivery and you will not be charged.
- The food is shipped in an insulated box to your door on the day you specified
- You prepare your meals (most take 30 minutes or less) and enjoy
I recently tried the MissFresh Custom Box using a $35 off discount code. Here’s my honest review.
(Note: MissFresh did not ask me to write this review, nor did they compensate me. The post does, however, contain links to a discount code that will save you $35 and earn me $25, if you choose to use it).
The MissFresh Custom Box is the most expensive option on the menu. The reason? It offers the customer the most choice.
While the Chef’s Box and Vegetarian Box offer fixed menus each week, the Custom Box lets you choose from thirteen different meals.
For three recipes with two servings each, the weekly price is $65.94. I used a $35 off discount code, so my price was $30.94. I actually found that I got three servings out of each meal, so I basically got nine servings of food for $31. That’s $3.44 per serving of fresh, nutritious, tasty food. And I didn’t have to go to the grocery store. Not too shabby.
I’m not gonna beat around the bush – I LOVED the food. These were the three meals I received:
Lemon Sole was basically pan-fried sole fillets served on a bed of roasted red and yellow peppers and artichokes, over spicy lentil mash. Garnished with lemon and parsley.
As you can see, that’s two big sole fillets, two whole peppers, fresh artichokes, a full lemon and onion, plus everything else I needed to create this:
I had two servings just like the one in the picture, plus a veggie-only serving I took for lunch the next day. I could have made those two large sole fillets stretch into three servings, but I’m not a fan of reheated fish, so I didn’t bother.
This meal was healthy and delicious. What really made it was the lentil mash – so flavourful.
Veggie lentil burger
The veggie lentil burger included ingredients to make my own burger patties using lentils, zucchini, spices, eggs, garlic, parmesan cheese, and breadcrumbs.
It also included lots of extra zucchini and panic to make fries (which were way better than expected). The box included two large and delicious buns, and everything I needed to dress my burgers: mayo, tomato, and a full head of iceberg lettuce. I didn’t really need all that lettuce, but hey, I’ll take it.
This recipe was also delicious. I had enough ingredients to make four burger patties and three servings of zucchini fries. MissFresh only included two buns, so I used bread when I had the leftovers.
The only negative thing I have to say about the lentil burger is that the buns arrived squished. They had been packed under everything else in the box, unfortunately. Didn’t affect the taste, though.
Sundried tomato pesto rigatoni
Oh. My. God.
I was doubtful about this recipe because at first it seemed like it might be a strange combination of flavours. You have sundried tomato pesto, zucchini, almonds, and gets cheese. Not something I would have thought to pair together.
This dish seriously blew my mind. I thought I had died and gone to food heaven. Honestly, it was better than the pasta dish I paid $25 for in a restaurant the night before (anniversary celebration).
Not sure what made it so amazing, I think it was the pesto. It also didn’t hurt that they were very generous with the feta cheese and the almonds. I hope it shows up on the MissFresh menu again, because I will definitely be ordering that week!
Like the other meals, I got three servings out of this one. I gave one to my husband (it made me sad, but sometimes you have to make sacrifices).
I really enjoyed my first MissFresh experience. All three recipes were excellent, with the sundried tomato pesto rigatoni standing out as the super-star.
I got nine meals for $31, and to me, that’s pretty good value. I also really appreciated receiving exactly what I needed to make the meals. When it comes to trying new recipes on my own, I generally have two main struggles:
- Half the time I can’t find all the ingredients at my local supermarket
- I often have to buy a big bottle of an ingredient I will never finish
MissFresh solves both those problems, with the added convenience of being delivered to your door.
Would I pay full price for it? After all, I’m all about financial freedom.
Well, yes, I would, but not every week. You can definitely prepare meals at home for less, but it is a nice treat that offers much better value than eating out. I have ordered it once since and will continue to monitor the menu offerings and order it when I see something that looks super-delicious that I couldn’t easily make on my own.
Want to try MissFresh for cheap?
Use my discount code to save $35 off your first MissFresh order. Full disclosure: if you use my code, you’ll save $35, and I’ll get a $25 credit to apply towards a future order. I think that will make us both pretty happy 🙂
