      Overview: What is Fresh Prep?

      Welcome to The Quick Dish’s Fresh Prep review!

      We’re here to provide you with all the information you need to make an informed decision about your next meal kit delivery service.

      Fresh Prep is absolutely worth checking out if you’re looking for a convenient and delicious way to enjoy high-quality meals at home.

      Fresh Prep is a Vancouver-based company founded in 2014 by Becky Brauer, Dhruv Sood, and Husein Rahemtulla. As a certified B Corp, Fresh Prep is committed to using sustainable and ethically-sourced ingredients, so you can feel good about what you’re eating.

      They started delivering their delicious meal kits to the Greater Vancouver area and have since expanded to Greater Victoria, Nanaimo, Kelowna, Penticton, and Vernon, Alberta.

      In addition, they now cover Calgary, including Okotoks, Airdrie, Red Dear, and as far north as Edmonton.

      With Fresh Prep, you’ll have access to a wide variety of healthy and delicious meals that are easy to prepare, no matter where you live.

      Let’s dive in and see what Fresh Prep has to offer.

      Ingredients, Quality and Sustainability

      When it comes to ingredients, quality, and sustainability, Fresh Prep truly stands out. The company offers ten chef-designed recipes each week, all made with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. In addition, they source their seafood sustainably, and all of their poultry is antibiotic-free.

      Fresh Prep is also committed to providing options for different dietary needs, such as carb-conscious, vegetarian, vegan, and gluten-free meals. Each recipe is thoughtfully planned and prepared with quality ingredients at an affordable cost for a delicious home-cooked meal made by you.

      In addition to its commitment to quality ingredients, Fresh Prep is also committed to sustainability. As a certified B-Corp, the company is committed to minimizing its environmental impact, from providing a reusable cooler bag to reducing its use of single-use plastics and making its packaging recyclable. They even offer a Zero Waste Kit option where you can return everything except for the meat packaging, a rare feature among meal kit companies.

      The Fresh Prep Zero Waste Kit

      Now, this is something we can get behind: Pre-chopped, measured ingredients packed in reusable, returnable containers. If you’ve ever wanted to try meal kit delivery but felt there is just too much waste associated with them, you’re not alone. And, you’re not wrong.

      Typically, meal kits come packed with an assortment of small containers and plastic bags. Granted, a lot of that material is recyclable. However, it still doesn’t address the most important of the three R’s (Reduce, Reuse and Recycle).

      How does the Zero Waste kit work? 

      The Fresh Prep Zero Wast Kit gets delivered to your door in a reusable cooler bag containing pre-cut, measured ingredients sealed in a convenient storage container similar to a snap lock.
      I love how easy Fresh Prep has made its zero-waste kit. First, remove the container from the cooler bag and store it in the fridge until you’re ready to cook the recipe. Then, when you’re ready to cook, remove and pour out each ingredient as per the easy-to-follow recipe. Cook and enjoy! Since there’s no prep other than cooking, clean-up is simple, making the Zero waste kit not only convenient but highly sustainable as well. Win-Win!

      When done, rinse the reusable cups, either under the tap, or place them on the top rack of your dishwasher. Fresh Prep takes care of the more thorough sanitization once they collect the Zero Waste Kit. Fresh Prep will collect the entire kit on their next delivery.
      Also, it’s worth noting that Fresh Prep provides the Zero Waste kits at no additional charge to its customers. In addition, they are part of the regular weekly menu options. While there are plans to expand on the Zero Waste recipe options, currently, you can find two recipes among the weekly offers. I sure hope to see more variety soon, and I believe that Fresh Prep’s commitment to sustainability will ensure a move towards more of this feature.

      Our Experience Ordering from Fresh Prep

      Alright, so let’s get into the nitty-gritty of the Fresh Prep review and my first impressions. First, I’ll admit, my expectations were relatively high as I was excited to try the Fresh Prep Zero Waste Kit for the first time.

      The Fresh Prep Delivery

      Fresh Prep provided us with a delivery window between 10 Am and 4 Pm, and from the option of Sunday, Monday, or Wednesday, we decided to go with Wednesday. We received a confirmation email with our order details and the delivery time when our order was complete. In addition to the email, they provided an SMS (Text) option to receive delivery status and notifications via cell phone. We did, however, experience a bit of a delay when it came time for our delivery. We received two delay notifications which pushed our order delivery closer to 8 Pm. However, I will say that the communication level was great. And, we had plenty of time to make alternate dinner plans for that evening as it wasn’t looking like we’d receive our order in time.

      Suppose you’re familiar with other meal kit delivery services. In that case, you’ll know that orders are typically shipped in an insulated cardboard box with the recipes either packed in a paper bag or a single-use plastic bag. When our order arrived, I was happy to see that it was delivered and packed in the returnable cooler bag as described. Next, we removed the Zero Waste Kit and regular recipe and stored them in the refrigerator until we were ready to cook.

      Our First Fresh Prep Recipe

      Upon arrival, I inspected the kits to see what the condition of all the ingredients was. Unfortunately, I’ve been disappointed with the quality of the various meal kits I’ve tried in the past. However, I’m pleased to report that all the ingredients that Fresh Prep provided were fresh and crisp. Everything looked like it could have come straight from the grocery store. Since it was too late to cook my meals that night, I stored the recipes in the fridge for the night.

      When I was ready to cook the first meal, I first read over the entire recipe. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. My first meal (Indian chicken tikka wraps) was one of Fresh Prep’s “1 Pan” options, rated as easy and a 30-minute recipe.
      The prep time and cook time were accurate and as described in the recipe. I tend to cook ingredients like chicken a little bit longer than they suggest, but that’s just my personal preference. Finally, I rinsed all the plastic, minus the meat packaging, and tucked it back in the cooler bag to return to Fresh Prep.
      The results were quite tasty! And, as far as portions are concerned, I found the main to be a decent size and the side salad to be more than enough for two people. I would eat this meal again.

      Our Second Fresh Prep Recipe

      When it came time to cook the second meal (Spicy chorizo & egg hash), I was already familiar with how the Fresh Prep recipes worked. However, this time I was preparing the Fresh Prep Zero Waste Kit meal, and admittedly, I was looking forward to seeing how they worked firsthand. It’s worth noting that there is very little extra prep involved with these kits, which is highly convenient. With the small amount of additional prep finished, all that remains is to add the pre-measured ingredients as per the recipe.

      In addition, there is minimal extra packaging in the recipe, besides the meat products, of course. And what little there is can be rinsed along with the kit containers and returned in the cooler bag.

      As it turned out, we had a guest show up that evening, so I added a couple of extra eggs that we had on hand, and we could feed a third person easily. The meal turned out quite lovely and luckily we were able to improvise just slightly.

      Fresh Prep Review Final Thoughts

      In conclusion, Fresh Prep is an excellent meal delivery service that stands out in its commitment to sustainability, convenience, and quality.
