If your dietary goals include the words vegan, high-protein, keto, paleo or Whole30, it can be challenging to find or prepare tasty meals that fit your needs. Meal-delivery services can make it easier to eat healthy, convenient dishes that are appropriate for you.
One meal-delivery option that’s well-suited towards specific diets is Fresh N Lean. With seven plans that cover options from keto and low-carb, to vegan and the Mediterranean diet, this is a solution that fits nearly every lifestyle.
All meals come prepared
High-protein, keto-friendly and vegan options
More than 100 meal options each week
Vacuum-sealed, recyclable meal containers
Full nutrition information provided
Meals ready in less than three minutes
Includes breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack options
Up to 21 meals per delivery
Unlike more traditional meal kits, such as Blue Apron and Marley Spoon, which help you prepare your own dinner with pre-portioned ingredients, each Fresh N Lean meal arrives fully cooked in a vacuum-sealed container ready to be heated in under three minutes.
If you’re wondering what a week in the life of a Fresh N Lean subscriber is like, we tested the service to see how everything from delivery, to meal taste and nutrition stacked up.

Fees and delivery
When you sign up for Fresh N Lean, you’ll select a meal plan. Options include Protein+, Vegan, Whole30, Keto, Paleo, and Low-Carb. Then, you’ll select whether you want breakfast, lunch, dinner, or a combination, for five or seven days.
Cost varies by plan. For example, five days of three vegan meals a day costs $134.85, or $8.99 per meal. The same amount of meals on the Protein+ plan costs $162.35, or $10.82 per meal.
Shipping is included in the price. The service is a subscription, though you can pause or cancel at any time. You can also skip up to two weeks at a time or opt for bi-, tri- or quad-weekly delivery if you don’t want a box every week. The cancellation deadline is Saturday at midnight PST for the following week. You can cancel and pause your account online or by calling customer service.
The deadline for selecting your meals is the Friday before shipment at midnight PST.
