MissFresh Review November 2016
MissFresh Review November 2016
Not too long ago I posted a coupon code for a new food delivery service I found for us Canadians. I LOVE meal delivery subscription boxes, but until now, us Canadians didn’t really have too many options…..one to be exact. I know of a couple others but they only ship to one or two provinces……boo! MissFresh is fairly new and they ship all over Canada…..yay!
If you aren’t familiar with MissFresh it is a recipe delivery service. Each week you get to choose from 10 different recipes. You receive all the ingredients you need (shipped over night) as well as easy to follow instructions. Here is why I love recipe delivery services (in their words):
- The everyday puzzle of “What do I cook today?” is resolved.
- I don’t need to run out to find missing ingredients everything I need is provided.
- All recipes are ready within maximum of 30 minutes.
- Meals are healthy and diverse.
- I can reduce waste by only receiving what I will need for my recipes.

When you sign-up for a MissFresh subscription you have a few options to choose from. You can choose 2, 4 or 6 portions per meal, and 2-5 meals per week. If you choose 2 portions per meal like I did, you can only choose 3-5 meals per week, you can’t opt for 2 meals per week. I kind of wish they had that option available because when the BF is working out of town I really only need 2 meals per week.
They appear to have 10 recipe options per week, and I was able to find at least a couple that would suit my high-maintenance vegan diet.
PS – They also have a snack box option, which makes me very excited, and I will be reviewing that in the next week or so. Here’s a look at the 3 recipes I ordered this week…..
Fennel and Orange Turbot en ‘Papillote’
This white fish baked en ‘papillote’, is both healthy and tasty! A quick and easy meal to prepare on weekdays! Accompanied by Green Salad and Brown Rice.
For those of you who aren’t aware, I have been vegan for 7 or 8 years. But…..I will sometimes eat fish as my little body needs the omegas, and the extra protein. I don’t love it, but I will eat it…….the odd time.
But, with that being said, I’m not sure if I am going to end up making this recipe, or if I do, I will be adapting it quite a bit. One of the liquids spilled during transit and soaked into some of the other ingredients. My little bag of salad is also looking kind of sad. I am EXTREMELY picky with my salad greens, and if they don’t look fresh I simply won’t use them.
Leek and Zucchini Galette
Who said pie was only for dessert? This amazing vegetarian galette will make you wanna eat more dinner-pie. Stuffed with Ricotta Cheese and Cherry Tomatoes.
This is the second recipe I ordered this week. It’s not completely vegan, due to the cheese, but I have always wanted to make something like this so I ordered it more for the cooking experience than the recipe itself. As far as the ingredients go, the zucchini is a little damaged, but other than that everything looks good.
The grilled salmon is served with a nutritive and colourful salad. Pretty tasty! Served with Beet, Endive and Lentil Salad.
This is my third recipe for the week and the one I am most excited about. It includes some of my favourites – beets, lentils, and kale. As far as the ingredients go, the endive doesn’t look too fresh, but everything else is fine.
MissFresh Review November 2016 – Final Thoughts
So……what do I think of my first MissFresh delivery? I am happy with it, but not ecstatic. I’m not a huge fan of the way they package their items, mostly because some of mine arrived damaged. But they also leave some of the bigger items loose in the box rather than including them with the rest of the items for the recipe…..if that makes sense. I like for all my ingredients for a specific recipe to be in one package. I want to be able to pull the package out of the fridge and get started. I don’t want to have to figure out which ingredient goes with which recipe. I know this makes me sound lazy, but one of the reasons I order these recipe boxes is to save myself time. Here is what I like about this subscription…..I think the price is reasonable, there’s a nice variety of recipes, I like that they have a snack box option, and the recipes themselves seem easy to follow. I still need to test out the recipes, but I will be sure to post at least 2 of them once that happens and give you my final opinion.
