By now I’m sure you’ve heard the words “meal prep” and either thrive off the challenge or roll your eyes and go back to binge-watching the TV show of the moment. I think Sunday meal prepping has gotten a bad rep as an impossible task. Here are my best tips to cross that bridge into prepping so that you can employ healthier eating strategies throughout the weekdays….

Game day is the best because in the end, it doesn’t matter if your team wins or loses: there will always be the party food. Pulled pork is one of your best bets for feeding a team because it can be made in large batches and is great on nachos, potato skins or—our personal favorite—piled onto a toasted slider bun with some slaw.
Check out our pulled pork recipe below to see just how easy making it can be. Best of all, it’s made in a slow cooker, so if you’re headed to a tailgate party, just bring your crock pot to the parking lot!
It’s not hard to jazz up hot dogs. For this recipe, we’re reaching into the Middle Eastern pantry to make familiar franks even more exciting. With Labor Day coming up, there couldn’t be a better time to try this one out!
Why is this a game changer? Let’s consider some examples:
- Because dinnertime will be here sooner than you think.
- Because you always pick the slowest line at the store.
- Because you can do so much better than takeout.
- Because going to the store after work is sheer madness.
- Because you already ate last weekend’s groceries.
We could go on, but the bottom line is we get it. We get that you don’t like waiting around for your FreshDirect order. We get that when you’re hungry, you want your groceries ASAP. When we launched same-day service in select areas earlier this year, we got a huge positive response. But we knew we could go one step further by extending the cutoff until later in the day, giving you more time to shop and less time to wait.
So this month we’ve launched expanded service windows on the Upper East Side and Upper West Side in Manhattan, and select areas of Brooklyn. When you place an order by 1 PM for delivery in those areas, you’ll be able to get it that very evening. If you’re not located there, stay tuned: we’ll be rolling out expanded same-day delivery options in more locations over the coming weeks.
To see the available timeslots in your neck of the woods, click on the Delivery Times tab at the top of the FreshDirect homepage.
You won’t find a better option for same-day grocery shopping online. So if you hear us say “see you later,” “later” might be sooner than you think!
You probably don’t think too much about food packaging. It only takes a moment to rip off before you get to the (often literal) meat of the matter, after all. But here at FreshDirect, we do care about it. A lot. That’s because we’re obsessed with bringing groceries to you in the best possible condition and at the peak of freshness and quality.
So when it came to our ground beef offerings, we wanted to do something different packaging-wise that would maintain the high quality of the meat along every step of its journey from our facilities to your plate. We simply weren’t going to make any compromises on freshness, functionality, or taste….
Sabra Hummus is one of our faves—we could snack on it with some pita chips all day long. But we had no idea that you can use it to make some pretty tasty dishes too until the folks at Sabra shared these absolutely amazing flatbread recipes with us. They use the spread as a base to hold the toppings in place. Not only are these flatbreads genius, they’re also perfect for summer since they feature lots of fresh, fun, and seasonal veggies!…
We’re celebrating summer with a Lobster Party because at this very moment, new-shell lobsters are arriving our way, fresh from the docks of Maine.
