Have you heard of the menu planning service called The Fresh 20? This service focuses on meal plans that rely on simple, healthy and homemade dinners using just 20 fresh, seasonal ingredients per week. The Fresh 20 mixes and matches a small list of ingredients to create 5 balanced dinners that play off each other. They include detailed guides to meal prep, original recipes everyone will enjoy (even picky eaters) and motivation to help you stay the course on busy weeknights. No preservatives, no processed food, no frozen ingredients. Classic, vegetarian and gluten-free dinner plans start at $5/month. In addition to dinner menus The Fresh 20 now also offers nutritious lunch menus using whole ingredients so you can leave the packaged foods on the grocery store shelf. Find The Fresh 20 on Facebook and Twitter.
