Looking For A Healthy Meal and Delivery Service in Atlanta?

By: Michael Kummer
If you live in the Atlanta area and are looking for a meal plan or delivery service that offers fresh, local, chef-prepared and Paleo-compatible meals at a reasonable price, consider giving Fresh ‘n Fit Cuisine a try.

About Fresh ‘n Fit Cuisine

I had never heard about Fresh ‘n Fit Cuisine, but they have been creating and delivering healthy, chef-prepared gourmet meals for customers in the Atlanta area since 2003. They are an employee-owned company that has the goal of supporting local farmers and food producers by locally sourcing ingredients and taking the guesswork out of healthy living.

The fresh, gourmet meals prepared by your Fresh ‘n Fit Cuisine™ chefs are an affordable way to eat well every day—for a fraction of the cost of having a personal chef. When you add in the convenience that comes from never having to shop, prep, cook or clean up, it’s the smartest way to enjoy mouthwatering meals and still meet your nutrition and wellness goals.

How it works

Fresh ‘n Fit Cuisine offers a variety of meal plans and options to customize your meals. You can even choose between pickup and delivery as well as the calorie count per meal. Getting started is straightforward:

  • Pick your meal plan start date and number of weeks
  • Choose from one of their five menus or create a custom menu
  • Select the number of meals per day, calorie count and days per week
  • Choose a pickup location or shipping method

Meal plans

Fresh ‘n Fit Cuisine offers five menus and an option to customize your meal plan.

  • Healthy Mix: As the name implies, it’s a mix of traditional food that includes lean meats and seafood.
  • Vegetarian: Includes house-made meatless meals that are low in fat and cholesterol. Sounds like the opposite of what I would get 🙂
  • Low Carb: Those meals contain approximately 15% net carbs. Three meals add up to only 40 net grams per day.
  • Paleo: My obvious choice of entirely organic, naturally gluten and dairy-free meals made with grass-fed, cage-free meats, wild-caught seafood, and organic fruits and vegetables.
  • Gluten Free: Those meals are naturally gluten-free, but since cross-contamination cannot be guaranteed, they are not recommended for those with Celiac Disease.
  • Custom: Build your own menu from over 300 meals to choose from.

Pricing

Meals start at $7.50 per meal but can go up to $14.99 if you only order one individual 600-calories dinner meal. You can see all the pricing options here, but in a nutshell, you pick your meals based on the following matrix:

  • How many meals per day: For example, you can select breakfast, lunch & dinner, or breakfast & lunch, or lunch & dinner, etc.
  • Days per week: Depending on the plan, you can choose 3, 5, or 7 days per week.
  • Calorie count: Options include 400 and 600 calories per meal.
  • Individual meals: You can order as little as a single meal.

If you don’t want to bother with grocery shopping and cooking at all, you can sign up for the seven days a week, three meals a day plan. That plan would cost you about $155 or $177 per week, depending on if you choose the 400 or 600 calories per meal option. Per month, that would add up to $620 and $708, respectively, plus sales tax and distribution or delivery fee.

It’s important to note that some of the plans, including the Paleo choice, have a $9.50 per week additional charge. In return, you get the healthiest and highest-quality food Fresh ‘n Fit cuisine offers.

As a result, 21 meals (600 calories each) per week on the Paleo plan would cost me $745.96 per month, plus $26 in sales tax and distribution fee, if I choose to pick up my meals at a nearby pickup location. If I wanted my meals to be delivered instead, I would have to pay $139.20 for sales tax and delivery fee, not including any special offers or discounts.

Pickup and Delivery

One advantage of Fresh ‘n Fit Cuisine is that they offer over 100 pickup locations in the Atlanta Metro area. By picking your meals up instead of having them delivered, you can save a substantial amount of money.

For most plans, you can pick up your freshly prepared meals on Monday and Thursday, between 4 and 7 pm. For us, the closest pickup location was less than two miles away. That made picking up our meals a convenient and cost-saving option.

How do the meals taste

To me, food is first and foremost fuel, and the taste is only a second priority. But I appreciate that for most of you, those priorities may be reversed. The good news is that Fresh ‘n Fit Cuisine successfully delivered on both fronts. Their Paleo meals are prepared with high-quality ingredients, they arguably taste delicious, and they were satisfying.

I truly enjoyed all of their meals and didn’t have a favorite. Kathy, my wife, liked the salmon best and highly recommends it. She kept talking about how good it was, even days after she had it. Fresh ‘n Fit Cuisine can take that as a well-deserved compliment, as I know Kathy as a somewhat picky eater when it comes to meals she didn’t prepare herself.

Why you should consider a meal (delivery) service

For many, being a stay-at-home wife/mom or husband/dad isn’t the first career choice. For some it’s not fulfilling, for others, it would be financially challenging. Whatever the reasons may be, having a job significantly limits the time you have left for things like grocery shopping, cooking and spending it with your loved ones. But it’s not just about buying food and eating it. It’s spending time on figuring out what’s truly healthy.

Or you may be single, with no desire to cook. Whatever the circumstances may be, meal services like Fresh ‘n Fit Cuisine are a viable option you should consider.

The case for Fresh ‘n Fit Cuisine

Fresh ‘n Fit Cuisine not only saves you a ton of time, but it also takes the guesswork out of healthy eating. Even if you don’t care about the Paleo diet, why gluten is bad or why grass-fed is better than corn-fed beef, rest assured, they do. And letting them make the right choices for you, will benefit your health in the long run.

I spend countless hours reading and researching healthy eating. But I understand that not everyone shares my compassion for that topic. I’m fortunate to have a wife who chooses to stay at home with the kids and to embrace a Paleo-centered lifestyle. I also work from home and enjoy a home-cooked meal every day, unless I am traveling.

The chances are that your circumstances may be different. If so, I would encourage you to take a closer look at how much time you or your partner spend on grocery shopping and meal preparation. If you rather spend that time on something else, give Fresh ‘n Fit Cuisine a try.

Menu Spotlight: Healthy Mix

 


For the next few weeks, we wanted to get back to basics by breaking down each of our menus to show what they have to offer as well as their nutritional targets.

First up is one of our customers’ favorite: the Healthy Mix menu. This is our most traditional menu with a wide variety of local and regionally sourced lean meats, seafood and produce. This nutritionally balanced menu is pork free but with our a la carte options, you can add any meal of your choosing to your plan. Healthy Mix also can be ordered with No Beef or No Seafood meals. Don’t care for either of those? Then choose our No Beef AND No Seafood option!

Our Healthy Mix meals are low in sodium, cholesterol and fat.

Our Registered Dietitian balances the nutritional content of the meals by the week. This allows us to offer you some of your favorite meals that may be slightly higher in sodium, like the Grilled Cheese Panini with Tomato Soup and the Shrimp with organic Red Mule Farms grits, while keeping the weekly nutrition numbers in line with our targets.

You’ll discover that eating healthy doesn’t mean boring or that you have to deprive yourself of the comfort foods that you love. Our dietitian does all of the nutritional number crunching for you so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy our gourmet meals.

Healthy Mix’s nutritional targets for sodium for our 1,200 calorie plan (3 meals a day) is less than 1500mg per day. While the targets for our 1,800 calorie plan (3 meals a day) is less than 2,000 mg per day.

If you want to go even lower in sodium, try using our Custom menu option. This allows you to choose the meals with the lowest sodium to build your own personal menu.

By meeting the healthy eating guidelines of the American Diabetes Association, the American Heart Association and the American Cancer Society, this menu is perfect for individuals who want to lose weightmaintain weight and are concerned with eating healthy. Individuals with hypertensioncardiovascular disease and diabetes generally do well on this plan.

The Beginner’s Guide to Fitness

workout-1420741_1920
You look in the mirror and wonder to yourself: How did I let myself go this far?  Whether you are brand new to fitness, or you’ve simply fallen out of shape recently, here is the quick beginner’s guide to get you back on track quickly. Change your in-front-of-the-mirror thought bubble to: Wow, I’m looking amazing! by reading on and taking the action steps below.

Start with Motivation

Why do you want to get fit again? There must be a reason that you desire to change your body at this time in your life. Think about it until you have a very clear, very specific reason. There is no wrong answer here. We all have our own personal motivators for wanting to achieve our best selves. What’s ultimately important is that your reason is specific and powerful to you. Once you’ve determined what your motivation is, write it down where you can see it every day. Think about it. Focus on it. Don’t ever let go of it.

Work on Education

You need to eat right and workout smart in order to quickly achieve your goal body. Do you know how to do this? Are you sure? While there is more information on fitness available to us today than ever before, all of the information noise often gets in the way more than it helps. Don’t expect to know exactly how to get into shape by yourself. A successful body transformation plan should be made by a fitness professional, like myself. I’ll take your personal information into account and will answer any and all questions to ensure your success.

Seek out Support

It’s time to have an honest and vulnerable conversation with the people in your life who matter the most. Let them know how far you’ve let yourself go. Let them know what your goal is. Let them know why this matters so much to you. Your success rate depends heavily on the support system that you build around yourself as you begin to implement healthy lifestyle changes. It’s very possible that you’ll find one or more people in your life who are threatened by your desire to improve your body. While this can be upsetting, try to approach it with understanding. The best scenario would be them joining you.

What do 2 of Atlanta’s Most Popular Radio Personalities Have In Common?

cassie-kristen
Anyone who has experienced the joys of Atlanta’s morning commute has most likely listened to either of radio’s most popular morning shows…Q100’s The Bert Show and 94.9 The Bull’s Caffeinated Radio with Jason and Kristen. Because of their different musical formats, one might think that the 2 shows wouldn’t have that much in common with each other. While that might be true to some extent, the biggest similarity is Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine’s meals.
Why are The Bert Show’s Cassie Young and Caffeinated’s Kristen Gates eating our meals? Because they work! Cassie and Kristen are always on the go, so finding time to eat nutritionally balanced meals, much less prepare them, has always been a big problem for them. That’s where Fresh ‘N Fit Cuisine comes in!
Both Cassie and Kristen have been enjoying our Custom Meal Plan option, which allows them to choose their favorites from each of our 5 menus. Our chef-prepared meals are a perfect fit for their busy lifestyle and can be for yours too!
