Fresh Direct is expanding--not just geographically (they are now in Westchester and CT), but they're also providing busy families with more meal solutions. The result: School lunches got a lot more creative and mom got a much-needed night off at dinner time.
Fresh Direct seems to grasp that moms are pretty excited for the end of school. They sent along this prepped lunch--pizza dipper, water, cereal bar and yogurt squirter--many of the same things I'd pack myself (though we always use a reusable water bottle). Fresh Direct must know being a mom is hard work. Lunches are $5.99 each.
My latest find is from the prepared food options and heat-and-eat options. FreshDirect's 4 Minute Meals are perfect for the nights you've got a soccer or back-to-back meetings. Instead of junk food try the 4 Minute Meals featuring entrees created by the chefs of some of New York City's most famous restaurants, including Tabla and Rosa Mexicana. I swooned for the Shrimp, Vegetable & Brown Rice Biryani ($7.99) for 10 oz. Seriously divine. I added a fresh salad and Mr. Momtrends and I dined like royalty.
We have used freshdirect.com many times on weeks when getting to our food co-op just isn't in the cards. They deliver staples like organic eggs, juice, tp and milk and many moms I know rely on them for everything from fruit to soup to nuts. I go online to my account, order, pick a delivery window (usually 2 hours) and then pay with a credit card. In a few years of using the service I've only had one late delivery--and I was given a refund on that order. How's that for customer service. And the delivery team is always very polite and solicitous. One one complaint? Too much packaging. Not very green to pack one or two perishables in a box.
Momtrends was not paid for this post. We did get some tasty meals.
