So, Melting Mama http://www.meltingmama.net/ reviewed The Fresh Diet a little while ago, and she made the whole thing sound incredible. The fresh foods, delivered to your doorstep, portion controlled meals are a Godsend to someone like me, who tends to eat too large portions of all the wrong foods all the time. Oh, and I hate that whole cooking and preparing foods thing.
But the cost of the diet (in the $1300 per month range) is out of my budget, absolutely unthinkable.
And then…a code. I love me some codes! Mama posted a code on her site for three free days on the Fresh Diet – you pay only for the delivery charges of $15. Okay, now it’s thinkable.
The initial process wasn’t smooth. I went to the website with my code, but couldn’t find an option for a three day program. I entered all of my information, but when I did, I could only go to the full 7 day menu option, and still couldn’t find a place to put a code. Because I started this 10 minutes after I was supposed to be out the door to pick the kids up at school, I ended up jotting down the phone number and racing out the door. As I was in car line waiting for Eilis to come out, they called me. It was a Big Brother moment as I gathered my wits to sort out why The Fresh Diet was calling me, as I couldn’t think of anything I had done wrong (Catholic school guilt). She actually was very helpful, set up my account, and gave me a code to log back into the computer in an hour and order my meals.
As soon as I got home, I logged in, and sure enough, there was my three day diet! Browsing the menu options was like browsing a menu in your favorite bistro, with options like Chilean Sea Bass and Asian style chicken salad. There are snacks and desserts, and everything sounds like it will be delicious!
I place my order, and I am confirmed for delivery beginning on May 3rd. I can’t wait to try everything, see if I lose anything, and let you know how it tastes and if it’s pouch-worthy!
