About Us

Our Story

As distributors of healthy meal plans for over 20 years, we saw the need for something different. We wanted to offer our clients fresher, better-quality ingredients. We wanted meals that were up-to-date and had more variety, yet still fit our vision of what a healthful, well-balanced plan should be. We partnered with our chef who had the same goals we did and opened our new kitchen on Chicago’s north side in the spring of 2016.

Since, we’ve provided thousands of meals to our loyal and happy customers. Building a local business and supporting local businesses are an important part of our concept. The Fresh Plan gives you time to enjoy other parts of their life instead of shopping, preparing and cooking, bringing busy people and healthy lifestyles together. Our growing list of clients agree!

The Fresh Plan FAQs:

There are two choices; 1200 calories per day and 1700 calories per day.
1200 Calorie Plan: Designed for those looking to drop a few pounds or a petite person looking to maintain weight.
1700 Calorie Plan: Designed for a larger person with significant weight to lose or a very active person looking to maintain weight.
The calories are based on three meals per day. If ordering the two meal per day plan then the calories will be less proportionately.

Health Concerns – Diabetes, High Blood Pressure and many other health concerns may benefit greatly from a healthy diet that is low in sodium, low in cholesterol, low in fats and low in added sugars.

Elderly Parents – Adult children concerned about their parents getting healthy nutritious meals delivered right to their door.

Mom’s/Dad’s – Want to eat healthy but find it difficult to cook for their kids and separate healthy meals for themselves.

Wednesday by 7:00 PM for the upcoming week. Your meals will be delivered or ready for pickup the upcoming Monday unless you order the weekend plan and then it will be for Thursday of that week. If you miss the cutoff time contact us and we will try our best to accommodate you.

You may cancel your order for the upcoming week before 7:00 PM Wednesday the week before.

Calories per day are based on a weeks daily average of three meals per day.

Everyone’s body is different and weight loss is a matter of caloric intake vs. output. A good goal to shoot for would be 1-2 pounds per week at the start of any diet. The losses may slow down after some of the initial weight loss.

You should seek advice from your doctor to see if The Fresh Plan is right for you. All the nutritional information may be found on our website at

No, and we don’t do this to punish you, we do it so that we can keep our costs down and pass that savings on to you.  However, there are four different weeks of menus so you’ll only have the same meal once per month. Everyone is on the same week at the same time. The only difference may be the portion sizes for the different calorie plans.

Keep all meals refrigerated until ready to eat.

Just eat a breakfast a lunch and a dinner each day. The first half of the week, eat weekday-part 1 meals before beginning weekend-part 2. Likewise, for the second half of the week, eat weekend-part 2 meals before starting the next weeks weekday-part 1 meals. We encourage you to eat salads and fish meals towards the beginning for freshness.

Meals can be warmed up in the microwave, traditional oven or on your cooktop. Although most all of the containers are microwaveable safe, we recommend you place meals on a microwaveable safe plate.

Go enjoy! Be smart about what you order e.g. salad with dressing on the side, grilled fish or chicken and have fruit for dessert. Watch your portions!
