90% of the meals I've made have all been very tasty and not very difficult to make. Definitely saves money shopping with the ingredient list and definitely saves time as some ingredients from other meal preps are used later in the week. Though they do list an alternative to their seafood choice, I wish they also listed alternate ingredients for such things as mushroom, brussel sprouts, kale, etc

Great idea, and really easy steps to follow. We liked most of the food within the weekly plans, although the budget/amount of food can get a little out of control if you don't eat the leftovers. We ended up throwing a lot out the first week, which ended up in a lot of wasted money. If you aren't a picky eater, and can stick to a plan - this is good fit for you.

The Fresh 20

One tax season, working mom Melissa Lanz tallied up the year’s receipts for takeout and convenience food and was stunned by the total. She recalls, “Our busy, unorganized lifestyle had driven us to spend the cost of a new car on takeout.” On top of that, she felt sluggish and unhealthy. A little online searching made her see that common wisdom held that one must choose between fast or healthy. Unconvinced, the one-time Internet marketing executive left her job and began tinkering with recipes. As she worked, three main priorities became clear: healthy and seasonal ingredients, simple recipes, and kid-friendly meals. After enlisting help from gluten-free expert Karen Fine, author of the website Fine Cooks…Everything Gluten Free, The Fresh 20 meal-planning service was ready to go live.

The set-up is simple: every Friday, the expert staff posts 20-ingredient grocery lists and recipes for five meals in classic, vegetarian, or gluten-free categories. The grocery lists eschew preservatives, processed foods, and frozen ingredients in favor of seasonal items that are good for you and the environment. Every recipe piggybacks off the others, so every item on the list creates balanced meals without waste. The list also includes estimated prices, which helps families balance their budgets or train for future appearances on The Price is Right. After following a quick recipe simple enough that kids can help, families gather around the table to enjoy diverse meals such as flank steak tacos, shrimp linguine, and butternut-apple bisque. At the end of 2011, only two years after Melissa started The Fresh 20, In Style magazine toasted the entrepreneur for creating one of the web’s “genius sites that make your day easier and better.”
