Summer Meal Prep Favorites

That time of year is finally here! Summer has arrived, and you are certainly looking forward to all the fun times ahead. It’s time for pool parties, barbecues, and much more. Summer meal prep favorites are all about lighter fare, fun events, and making it all easy. After all, who wants to be cooking or cleaning when everyone else is having a great time at your dinner? We have plenty of great summer recipes to keep your meals exciting, but here are our favorites.


Our Black and Blue Burger is one of our favorites on the whole menu. It’s a grown-up burger with a flavor profile that is mature but fun. The custom ground meat blend with Maytag blue cheese, arugula, applewood smoked bacon, caramelized onions, and black pepper aioli is always a go-to for us when we need something different. If you’re a vegetarian, we have a delicious Beyond Meat burger option. If you’re on the keto diet, we offer this in a lettuce wrap. In any form, this is excellent with a milkshake, malt, or just a good ol’ beer.


Whether you’re tail gaiting it outside the stadium or cooking in your backyard, everybody loves a good barbecue. Our Barbecue Chicken Bowl is a crowd favorite every time! Braised chicken with grilled sweet corn (and how can you resist grilled corn?) and mashed potatoes, with a side of crispy, crunchy coleslaw. We love pairing this with our fudgy brownies from the Sweet Box and an old-fashioned bottle of soda, just like that family reunion when Uncle Bob confessed to having a collection of backscratchers.


Fresh Taste Meal Prep has a couple of breakfast choices (suitable for keto diets), but our favorite is the Breakfast Plate. Scrambled eggs topped with our delicious three-cheese blend and Applewood smoked bacon (we know you can smell that right now) and salsa on the side. You can order this dairy-free and vegetarian. Besides the deliciousness, we love this because it freezes well; this is an excellent choice for overnight company.

An honorable mention here is the Breakfast Tacos. We scramble up some eggs, top them with chorizo and the three-cheese blend, and serve them hot with breakfast potatoes and sour cream. We also include a side of tomatillo sauce. Some of our customers like to wrap it all in a tortilla (not included in the meal).


Most people prefer lighter lunches in the summer. It’s hard to eat enough for that full feeling when it’s hot outside. We have a couple of favorites here. One of them is our Caribbean Shrimp Tacos. We wrap jerk-seasoned shrimp in a taco shell and top it with mango sauce (The keto version is topped with tomatillo sauce and cauliflower rice). At home, you can add a light sprinkle of lemon or lime juice or a small dollop of sour cream—or both!

Remember Lunchables? We have fond memories of taking those to school with us every day and trading some of our items with other kids. Well, we have the grown-up version of that with our Charcuterie Box. We switched the commercially pre-packaged look for quality. We bring imported meat and cheeses together with artisanal crackers, jam, and dried fruits to make a light but delicious lunch. Instead of boxed chocolate milk, we suggest a cherry or orange seltzer water or a light beer if it’s that time of day. Top it off with a sugar cookie from the Sweet Box.

Our other lunch fave is the Crudite Box, especially if it’s scorching. Cold, crispy baby carrots, celery sticks, cherry tomatoes, and cauliflower, all ready to dip into some tasty red pepper hummus. Some like this with an ice-cold kombucha, but there’s nothing wrong with soaking down a nice, cold glass of water with a squeeze of lemon.


Oh, do we have dinners at Fresh Taste Meal Prep! It was hard to decide our summer favorite, so we agreed on two: The Chicken Carbonara and Garlic Tabasco Flank Steak.

The Chicken Carbonara is a straightforward dish and starts with Pappardelle pasta tossed with grilled chicken and bacon and covered in parmesan cheese sauce. A side of steamed broccoli adorns this flavorful, creamy dish. The keto version substitutes the Pappardelle with roasted cauliflower. This dish is delicious with a light ale or sparkling beverage.

The Garlic Tabasco Flank Steak is marinated in garlic and tabasco sauce, then grilled and served with roasted Brussel sprouts in a tasty honey-mustard glaze. The keto version has the glaze on the side. A delicious merlot or smoked porter goes excellent with this. If you don’t want alcohol, try cranberry or pomegranate juice—they compete well with the robust flavor and cleanse the palate.

There you have it! We confess to our favorites and hope you’ll try them this summer. Remember that you can have your meals delivered or pick them up, whatever makes your life easiest. Just start your account with us and start ordering!


Mother’s Day Meals from Fresh Taste

There is one person in our lives who have been there since the beginning, offering unwavering support, unconditional love, and making sacrifices for our happiness. Although we should acknowledge her every day of the year, we often tend to take it all for granted until Mother’s Day comes along, reminding us of all we have and making us think that maybe this year we should do something different. A brunch and a spa day are fine, but what if we could do something more? What if we could give our mother a week or more away from the chores she performs so well? What if we gave our moms the gift of Fresh Taste Meal Prep, allowing her to retire her oven mitts for at least a week? This guide to some of our favorite meals will help you choose the dishes that will make her happiest!

Mondays Won’t Be So Manic

Mondays, even during retirement, can be crazy days filled with appointments, emergencies, and unplanned meetings, but your mother’s Monday can be made somewhat calmer with our chili lime shrimp dish! Our fresh shrimp are baked with delicious chile and lime and served over a bed of quinoa and steamed broccoli; the keto version offers cauliflower rice in place of the quinoa, making it the perfect dish for everyone’s diet!

Tuesdays Are Tasty

Tuesdays don’t really offer anything that makes them stand out in a crowd of days—unless you or your mom are a firm believer in the theme of Taco Tuesdays! If so, mom will be thrilled to start her day with our tasty breakfast tacos, made with chorizo sausage, eggs, three-cheese blend, and a side of tomatillo salsa for a little extra heat. For those who stick to keto diets, no tortillas are included, but both the keto and regular versions include breakfast potatoes, so maybe mom deserves a cheat day? It really is almost impossible to say no to tacos on this tasty day of the week!
Wonderful Wednesdays

Our menu changes weekly, so these are obviously just some ideas to get you started, but hump day can be made more savory for the first woman you ever loved with an order of our Jamaican Jerk Chicken. Served with sweet plantains and Cajun rice, the keto version offers roasted cauliflower in place of Cajun rice and is equally delicious! Now, some of our moms are a little hesitant when it comes to spice, so a happy substitute is our Italian Chopped Salad. Served with mixed greens, pepperoni, aged provolone, pepperoncini, tomatoes, cucumbers, and a lemon vinaigrette, this salad is not for the faint of heart and will be something that gives mom the realization that she is loved!

Almost Friday

In the working world, Thursdays are when we can begin to see the light at the end of the tunnel, and as we suffer through, we often find ourselves wanting something more. The meatloaf dinners offered by Fresh Taste Meal Prep taste almost as good as the ones your mom makes! This freezer-capable dish is made from our secret recipe and includes roasted potatoes and balsamic grilled vegetables, making Mom’s Thursday more than bearable!
Fri-Yay Flavors

As Friday finally arrives, mom doesn’t have to stress over what’s for dinner; she just needs to open her refrigerator and choose one of the meals you ordered and had delivered! Steak Fajitas will make this Friday extra special as she devours our Southwest seasoned grilled steak, sauteed onions, and peppers, topped with sour cream and served with flour tortillas. Even though mom is super sweet already, our sweet box which offers a combination of chocolate brownies and sugar cookies will sweeten her up even more!

Saturdays to Savor

Weekends are busy times no matter what you do, and sometimes all mom wants is a bowl of soup to tide her over between errands. Our Minestrone Soup is a rich and savory choice filled with penne pasta, peas, carrots, spinach, and tomato; it is guaranteed to satisfy even the heartiest appetites, and even though we wouldn’t dare suggest it is better than what mom could make, we think she will definitely approve.

No Need to Be Sad on Sunday

Sundays can be difficult, as we all know what comes next, but because your mom has a refrigerator filled with the best that Fresh Taste Meal Prep has to offer, this Sunday won’t be difficult at all! Burgers are a popular weekend meal, and our White Truffle Swiss Burger is popular in our food trucks, our restaurants, and of course, in your mother’s own kitchen! Created from our own special burger blend and topped with swiss cheese, caramelized onions, roasted mushrooms, and white truffle aioli, this delicious handheld is always a favorite!

Our Special Mother’s Day Menu

Besides our other fantastic options, we’re also offering a special Mother’s Day brunch menu with choices made to spoil! Enjoy delicious dishes like Feta Spinach & Red Pepper Quiche (one quiche or two quiche), Rosemary Prime Rib (one lb. or two lb.), Croissant Chicken Salad Sandwich (two halves or four halves), Balsamic Grilled Vegetables, Seasonal Fruit Salad, and Tiramisu (two slices or four slices). These options are available for two dinners for $54 plus tax, or for four at $99 plus tax. Additional sides of grilled vegetables, fruit salad, and tiramisu as well as a Charcuterie Box, Sweet Potato Casserole, Mashed Potatoes, Green Bean Casserole, and Herb Stuffing are available for an $8 add-on.

Check It Out!

Your mom isn’t the only one who sacrifices, and if you find yourself straining to come up with new meal ideas every day, why not check out what we have to offer for you as well? Order by Thursday May 6th at 3 PM and you can have your special Mother’s Day feast ready for delivery or pickup at BLT Kitchens (739 E Dunlap Ave in Phoenix) on Sunday, May 9th!


Spring Flavors to Savor from Fresh Taste

We desert rats do not need a calendar to tell us that spring has sprung; warmer temperatures, windy days, and the occasional rain showers that catch us off guard are all the guidance we need! As we spend more and more time playing outside, soaking in the last of the good days before the heat of summer takes over, we really do not want to spend any more time in the kitchen than we absolutely have to. Fortunately, with Fresh Taste Meal Prep at the helm, it is not necessary to sweat over a hot stove (unless you like that sort of thing!) because we do the hard work for you. This guide to our favorite spring flavors to savor will help you narrow down your choices, but if it gets too difficult to make some cuts, don’t! Many of our meals freeze well, so you can have a few extra on hand in case of emergencies.

BBQ Cheeseburger

The smell of charcoal, lighter fluid, and charred meat is a scent that is often the first harbinger of the season, but for those days when you want the savory taste of an excellently prepared burger but don’t want to smell like smoke and meat, our BBQ Cheeseburger comes to the rescue! Created with our custom burger blend and topped with barbecue sauce, cheddar cheese, bacon, and grilled onions, the brioche bun all this deliciousness is wedged between completes the picture of a perfect burger.

Creamy Roasted Mushroom Soup

The unexpected spring showers are always much appreciated, and when the temperatures start falling with the rain drops, a hearty bowl of Creamy Roasted Mushroom Soup takes away the chill! Created with fresh mushrooms toasted with a savory blend of rosemary and thyme, this special soup fills your stomach, warms your body, and feeds your soul.

Green Chile Chicken Casserole

The days for casseroles and soups will not last much longer; before long we will be on the hunt for salads and sandwiches, so enjoy these special dishes while you still can! Our green chile chicken casserole offers a little extra kick of spice guaranteed to please and is created with layers of marinated and shredded chicken, cheese, corn tortillas, and a green enchilada sauce that will have you scraping the bottom of the plate to ensure you get every drop. Served with a side of fajita roasted vegetables, this spicy dish may just become your favorite part of the season.

Sausage and Peppers Keto Style

With swimsuit season just a few short weeks away, many of us are starting our keto diets now, and our Sausage and Peppers dish can be ordered keto style, ensuring you stay on track! Made from grilled sausage that isn’t too spicy and is definitely not too bland, the cauliflower rice makes a perfect substitute for the roll our non-keto dish is served with. Red peppers and onions are the finishing touch for this spring favorite, yet another dish that will become your new favorite!

Taco Stuffed Sweet Potato

We can’t help but fall in love with this sweet and spicy dish, and after one bite you may find yourself thinking that our taco stuffed sweet potatoes are your favorite part of spring! We begin with a large, sweet potato baked to perfection and top it with seasoned ground beef, cauliflower rice, corn salsa, and cheese. A great option for many keto diets, this potato is a gift that keeps giving while helping to take away the extra pounds in your life!

Southwest Steak Salad

The weird thing about spring is the constant changing of the weather; one day may be blustery, cold, and rainy with temperatures barely reaching the 60s, while the next could be sunny, mild, and offering highs that reach the 80s. Not quite swimsuit weather, but warm enough to make you seek out something cool; our Southwest Steak Salad fits the bill nicely! We start out with a spring mix of greens, add our southwest steak strips, and then top the concoction with fresh avocado, roasted tomato salsa, crispy tortilla strips, and a cool and spicy lime chipotle dressing, aiming to please every one of your 10,000 taste buds!

Breakfast Tacos

Tacos can be on the menu for every meal on Taco Tuesday when you order our soon to be world famous Breakfast Tacos! Offering a fiery combination of chorizo sausage, eggs, three cheese blend, and tomatillo salsa, the breakfast potatoes that come on the side can be enjoyed in the taco or all by themselves; there is no wrong way to devour this spicy spring meal!

Order Today

Next week will be here before you know it, and if you don’t order by Thursday at 3 PM, you will have to wait yet another week to get your favorite spring flavors!


5 Flavorful Meals to Add to Your Weekly Meal Prep Routine

Meal prep4 is a popular buzzword these days as everyone is doing it, but unfortunately, not everyone is doing it right! Yes, you can dirty up every dish and pot in your kitchen, fixing huge quantities of the same ingredients that you then divide up into five (or more) meal prep containers. And yes, you can bring these meals into work every day, getting tired of the same old food by day three, so you leave days four and five sitting in the office refrigerator getting smelly and fuzzy because you really can’t stand to eat another bite of the turkey and veggies you prepared on Sunday. Or you could take another look at these five flavorful meals that make your taste buds sing as you click on the “get in my cart NOW” button and eat tastefully, healthily, and happy every day of the week!

Just Another Mediterranean Pork Loin Monday!

Let’s be honest. If you had about five more hours available every day, you would cook more meals like the Mediterranean Pork Loin, but since you don’t, we make it for you! Created from a juicy pork loin, we add balsamic grilled veggies, roasted lemon oregano potatoes, and then we drizzle the entire dish with pork jus. Making every day taste like the weekend, our Mediterranean Pork Loin takes some of the sting out of the most dreaded day of the week. For those following a keto diet, our keto version subtracts the potatoes and substitutes cauliflower, allowing you to enjoy your favorite dish without having to cheat!

Tuesdays Aren’t Just for Tacos

Although we LOVE Taco Tuesday, not every meal has to center around tacos, especially on those weeks when Fresh Taste Meal Prep is offering the oh so yummy Teriyaki Salmon Bowl! This healthy dish is made with sauteed salmon, brown rice, sweet teriyaki sauce, steamed broccoli, carrots, green onions, and is sprinkled with sesame seeds as a finishing touch. As you might expect, our keto version offers cauliflower rice instead of the brown, so you can stay on your diet track while still managing to devour a meal filled with flavor.

Hump Day Happiness with Honey Sriracha Fried Brussel Sprouts

If our mamas had made brussels sprouts that tasted like dessert, we would all be eating healthier these days! This sweet side dish is the perfect accompaniment to any of our dishes. Made with crisply fried brussels sprouts topped with a sweet and spicy honey and sriracha sauce, eating healthy has never tasted this delicious. Pair it with the pork loin or just choose to eat these sweet greens as your entire meal; you won’t be disappointed, we promise! If veggies aren’t your thing, however, your hump day will be made happier with our Saffron Risotto and Grilled Chicken dish. Offering a keto version as well made with cauliflower rice instead of risotto, the main dish of creamy risotto and grilled chicken gets an extra kick with a side of grilled vegetables.

Meal Prep on Friday Eve

We seem to wait all week for our favorite day to arrive, but Thursdays can be made even more special with our Garlic Tabasco Flank Steak! You won’t even mind that you still have another day to make it through to the weekend when you take your first bite of tender flank steak marinated in garlic and tabasco and served with yet another delicious brussels sprouts side dish. This one is roasted and mixed with a honey mustard glaze so tasty you will come back for seconds! The keto version is practically identical to the non-keto version—the only difference being the honey mustard glaze on the side.

Finally Friday!

At last! All your hard work, all the mornings of rising before the sun has paid off, and your reward, in the form of FRIDAY and more delicious meal prep offerings, has arrived! The temperatures are still cool, making our seafood chowder soup the perfect spring dish! Created from a hearty mixture of potatoes, corn, shrimp, and salmon this creamy soup tastes like ocean living feels! With each bite, you can almost imagine you hear ocean waves crashing against sandy shores, feel cool sea breezes kiss your cheeks, and smell the salty scent of the waters permeating the air! There is no keto version of this seafood-laden dish, but even the most strict diets need a cheat day to keep you interested in staying on them for the long haul, and what better way to celebrate the weekend than with a cheat meal this delicious?

Meal Prep Options for the Perfect Date Night in Arizona

If 2020 taught us anything, it is that we can have as much fun (or more) when staying home! Over the past year, we have spent more time with our families and our loved ones than ever before, and you know what? We kind of like it that way! Date nights spent at home cut down on the costs, keep you from having to appoint designated drivers, and actually let you focus on each other without distraction. The only question you may have for your date night in Arizona is, “Who is going to fix the meal?” Well, when you do a little planning ahead, Fresh Taste Meal Prep will do the hard work, and all either of you will have to do is warm up the meal and set it on the table; you can even make it more special by using the “good” china you got at your wedding! This guide to some of our more romantic meal prep options will help you narrow down your choices.

Barbecue on the Deck

These beautiful spring evenings make us want to spend as much time as possible outside enjoying the weather, and outdoor dining is symbolized best with a barbecue dinner. Our Barbecue Pork Bowl served with slow-roasted pork shoulder, cheesy mashed potatoes, grilled sweet corn, and coleslaw is the perfect accompaniment to your spring night on the deck. Using paper plates outside is recommended, though; save your good china for the next meal on our list.

White Tablecloths and Candlelight

Just because you are at home, it does not mean you have to forego all the little luxuries you might experience during a night on the town. Pull out the white tablecloths, use your wedding china, and find a good red in your wine cabinet to go along with our Grilled Bavette Steak. Created with a juicy steak topped with five onion vinaigrette and served with herb-roasted smashed new potatoes and steamed broccoli, this dish is romantic, filling, and will definitely do justice to your good china!

Laissez les Bon Temps Rouler!

Mardi Gras may have already passed by the time you read this, but there is no reason you must skip it altogether! No one will judge you for celebrating at home with your love and our Blackened Salmon dinner. Served with red pepper sauce and broccoli over rice pilaf, this taste of New Orleans is as spicy as your love for each other has always been. Bring on the beads!

Breakfast in Bed

Not all romantic meals have to take place at sunset; some of the most romantic meals we have ever shared with our own true loves have been shared in bed on lazy Sunday morning! Knowing you don’t have to get up early to enjoy the goodness of breakfast tacos made with eggs, chorizo sausage, three cheese blend, and homemade salsa will put a happy spin on a day that’s already gotten off to a fantastic start!

Picnic by the Pool

After months spent at home, a change of view is always nice, and a picnic by the pool is the perfect way to do so! You are close to a microwave, so any meal will work for this impromptu picnic, but if you want to stick to the classics, our Turkey Melt Sandwich made with thin-sliced turkey, swiss cheese, greens, au jus, and a side of roasted potatoes for non-keto diners or roasted cauliflower for our keto fans is the perfect substitute! Dangle your feet into the water as you share sandwiches and sip on your favorite poolside beverage; it won’t be long before you will be swimming happily together as well. Summer is just around the corner!

A Night at the Oscars

On Oscar night, even though we have never been invited (Not once, can you believe it?), we still like to make a night of it as we once more bring out the tablecloths, pop open a bottle of bubbly, and wear our finest pajamas to the show we are watching on television. Get into the Academy Awards spirit as you cast your vote for best picture and chow down on our Chicken Marsala. Served keto style with braised chicken thighs sauteed in a wine butter sauce with sauteed mushrooms, roasted cauliflower, and asparagus, this elegant meal is best enjoyed with the love of your life!

Game Night with Your Bride

It doesn’t matter how long you have been married, that woman sitting across from you crying over the sad ending on the movie you’re watching will always be your bride. Enjoying a simple evening at home, playing your favorite board game and chowing down on a White Truffle Swiss burger as you laugh out loud at stories you’ve heard and told a million times before will keep your love strong.

Order your Date Night in Arizona Meal by Thursday

The process is simple: Order by Thursday at 3 PM and have your meals delivered on Sunday or Monday. We’re here to help you have the perfect meal experiences throughout the week!


Delicious Meat Dishes Our Customers Love

In a world that is rapidly changing the way it sees nutrition values, there still manages to be one large contingent that will never change. You can call them meat-eaters, carnivores, or even meatatarians, but if you do not serve some kind of carne at your next get-together, you will not be able to call them to dinner! If you happen to have one of these die-hards sitting at your dinner table, you may think you will be forced to cook every meal yourself. And you would be incorrect; our Fresh Taste Meal Prep service offers a long list of meat dishes that are loved by carnivores, omnivores, and maybe even a few vegetarians that slide over to the meat-eating side every so often—don’t worry, your secret is safe with us!

The Most Important Meal

The one thing that has not changed nutritionally over the years is the importance of breakfast. We are told not to skip it, to eat like a rich man at the morning meal, and of course, we are continually informed that breakfast is the most important meal! And because we aim to please, we have included a protein-hardy breakfast dish that still manages to be light in calories and much loved by everyone who tries it: our Keto Breakfast Plate made with Applewood smoked bacon, scrambled eggs, three-cheese blend, and a side of salsa for a spicy kick! Our standard breakfast place offers all the above but adds a side of roasted potatoes for an extra heartiness. For those who love the spice, our breakfast tacos are tastebud pleasers; made with chorizo sausage, eggs, three-cheese blend, and tomatillo salsa, they are accompanied by a side of zesty breakfast potatoes for that extra bit of morning happiness!

Midday Meat Dishes Are Magnificent

Salad for lunch is a thing, that is true, but does it stack up against our classic Aioli Burger or our Carne Asada Tacos? For the meatatarian in your life, it most certainly does not, and when you get your first taste of marinated steak, tomatillo, cilantro, avocado crema, and tomatillo salsa, you may agree! There are more than enough veggies in this spicy dish to assuage the veggie lover in you, and anyone who has tried any of our burgers will tell you that there are none better; for those who are doing protein diets, order it keto style! Instead of a bun, this thick and juicy piece of meat is wrapped in a giant lettuce leaf, adding a satisfying crunch to every bite. Another lunch favorite is the Turkey Stuffed Peppers. Healthy green peppers stuffed with turkey, mozzarella, and tomato sauce, accompanied by balsamic grilled vegetables! See? There are ways for veggie lovers and meat lovers to happily enjoy a meal together!

Dinner Delights

As you can expect, dinner is the meal where we meataholics go whole hog (yeah, we went there!) and our Fresh Taste Meal Prep dinner dishes will definitely make the diner happy! Starting with our Citrus Marinated Pork Loin made with fried plantains, basmati rice, roasted carrots, and a mojo sauce guaranteed to bring delight to your taste buds. Swedish meatballs served with cheesy potatoes, lingonberry jam, glazed carrots, and gravy is a classic favorite your family will never tire of, so order a few extra and freeze them for future dinners or even lunches; this dish freezes well, giving you another reason to fall in love! Chicken fans should add our chicken katsu to their meal prep menu. Created with a panko fried chicken, katsu sauce, white rice, and pickled cucumber salad, this dish is especially filling and totally fun to savor. The keto version is served with cauliflower rice, which much to many people’s surprise, tastes so similar to rice you won’t miss the starchy stuff!

Mix Things Up a Bit

One of the many great things about our Fresh Taste Meal Prep Menus is knowing that because you eat them in the privacy of your home, you can toss the rules out the window! Enjoy the Citrus Marinated Pork Loin for breakfast, savor the Breakfast Tacos at lunch, and eat any of the meaty delights we have mentioned here for dinner! There are no rules when eating at home, only delicious choices that will make your mouth water the moment their aromas start to waft from the microwave. Feeling hungry in the middle of the night? Swedish meatballs enjoyed by the light of the stove will hold you over until it is at last time for breakfast. Speaking of breakfast, enjoy the delights of second breakfast at the time you would normally enjoy a mid-morning snack. Apples are great and all, but carne asada tacos rule the day!

Start Your Order Today!

All this talk of food is making us hungry, and if you are of like mind, go ahead and place your order today; it has to be in by Thursday at 3 PM to be ready for pickup or delivery by Sunday or Monday!


Keto-Friendly Meals for Your Week

Our parents were convinced that a healthy meal consisted of meat (preferably red), potatoes (preferably mashed with lots of butter and salt), and a vegetable that was more than likely corn, peas, or carrots! Accompanied by bread or biscuits and followed by a wonderful dessert, it really is surprising that we all aren’t the size of ships! Now, we are not saying that the less than healthy meals are your parent’s fault; they were just continuing the tradition of what they had been taught when they were sitting at their own parent’s tables. But as more research is being done regarding healthy and unhealthy meals, we are discovering that all those carbs could very well be the reason that most of our nation is overweight, and that if we stick to a diet high in protein and vegetables and low in carbohydrates, we can turn the tables on those unwanted pounds. Although we love a good carb laden dish (Taco Tuesdays for the win!), we understand that many of our customers are working on changing their eating habits, and because of that, we at Fresh Taste Meal Prep have created a keto-friendly meal to help them stick to their resolutions!

The Little Changes Help

In a world where fast food is way too easy to obtain and carbohydrates hold the key to deliciousness, it is not easy to stick to your guns and stay keto, but our dishes are proof that the little changes help! Take our Bacon Wrapped Keto Pork Loin for example; created with lots of delicious protein found in the bacon and loin, the caramelized onions, stewed granny smith apples, and roasted cauliflower that comes along with the dish add a delicious twist to the meal that used to be a staple in your parent’s home. And if the onions and apples are not on the strict Keto followers meal plan, they can be left on the plate. Or, for those that know that little changes are easier to follow than going strict from the beginning, a taste or two will be absolutely perfect!

Lettuce Wraps Aren’t Just for Chinese Food Anymore

The taste of a thick and juicy burger is something we all crave once in a while, and unlike most diets, the keto diet welcomes the delicious hunk of meat! Our meal prep version comes with barbecue sauce on the side, grilled onions, cheddar cheese, and bacon, and instead of a bun, it is wrapped in a crunchy piece of lettuce. Sweet potatoes served on the side are the finishing touch to this keto-friendly dish loved by all.

Cauliflower Rice Has Changed the Culinary World

We have a secret for you: Cauliflower rice isn’t just healthy, its taste is so similar to the white, carb-laden stuff we USED to think was good for diets, you may not even notice the difference! This makes our Sausage and Peppers keto dish even more savory than it sounds. Made with grilled sausage, red peppers, and onions, and served with cauliflower rice on the side, this rich and tasty dish will fill all the empty corners of your stomach and soul, making you feel as if you are cheating, when in actuality you are doing exactly what your diet tells you!

Breakfast Is the Most Important Meal of the Day

We have all heard about the importance of breakfast, and even if we rarely listened, grabbing a pop tart to gulp down with a cup of coffee to enjoy on the morning drive. A keto breakfast is a treat to be devoured, as the one food you rarely find on any diet plan, bacon, is a key ingredient, and our Keto Breakfast Plate is the perfect example! Made with bacon (can you smell it yet?), scrambled eggs, a three-cheese blend, and served with salsa on the side, this keto plate will fill you up and make you forget that there aren’t any extra carbs included! Who needs potatoes when you can have BACON?

Protein Bowls Are a Great Keto-Friendly Meal

Protein bowls are actually really good and can even be found at many fast food restaurants, but once you taste our Southwest Salmon Protein Keto Bowl, we think you will be able to easily drive right by the drive-thru! Served with roasted peppers and a bed of spinach, the tomatillo sauce is a healthy surprise. The salmon is spiced just right, and the veggies are completely carb-free, so go ahead and have a second helping; just remember that this is one dish you may want to order multiples of so as to not run out!

Keto Can Be Fun

When someone else does the cooking, the meals taste all that much better! Order your keto-friendly meal by Thursday at 3:00 PM and face the next week with a selection of healthy tools in your arsenal against weight gain.


Get Fresh & Delicious Meals Delivered Right to Your Door!

The world changed in many ways over the last year, and although there was uncertainty and sadness, some changes had their merits. We spent more time at home with family, less time at the office, and we discovered the benefits of having meals delivered to our doors! As a matter of fact, the meal prep services offered by Aioli Gourmet Burgers and Modern Tortilla were so well received, we have decided to offer our healthy and delicious Phoenix meal prep services full-time through our new venture, Fresh Taste Meal Prep! For those who tried our meal prep system earlier, and for those who are just now hearing about it, your 2021 is about to go that much more smoothly!

Keeping It Simple

Our business is not just about feeding hungry people; it is about simplifying our customers’ lives. You have enough complications in your everyday life, so our three-step system of meal prep helps you take some shortcuts! Start by visiting us online to set up an account. You only have to set up the account once, so your first visit may take a little longer than any following visits, but we can promise it will be worth it once you start getting our meals delivered to your door.

Once you have set up your account, the hardest part begins—narrowing down your choices! Our menu changes weekly, but many of your favorites will still be available. We work with your dietary restrictions, coming up with options that are delicious, healthy, and will not cause any issues with your food needs. Once you have chosen your menu for the week, the next step is far easier and involves choosing pick-up or delivery! We deliver our Phoenix meal prep options anywhere in the Valley (for a $5 or $10 delivery fee, depending on your location), which is the choice most people make, but if you happen to be in the area of our 32nd & Shea Aioli Gourmet Burgers location, you can pick up your selections on Sundays between 3 and 8 PM. You must place your order, however, by no later than Thursday at 3 PM. If you miss the cutoff time, you will have to wait another week to enjoy your Fresh Taste Meal Prep foods; although that would not be the end of the world, it might make your upcoming work week a little less enjoyable!

Taste Sensations

Now that you know how it works, you may be wondering about the food. Our menu is so much more than just burgers and tacos, as it offers a varied selection of single serving dishes that are created with fresh and locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. Choose flank steaks for your Monday night dinner, made with juicy flank steak grilled in garlic and tabasco and served with roasted brussel spouts and a sweet and savory honey mustard glaze. Tuesday nights have always been designated Taco Tuesdays, and although our menu offers more than burgers and tacos, we do offer Caribbean shrimp tacos for your south of the border cravings! Built with jerk seasoned shrimp, fresh corn tortillas, and mango sauce, this spicy delight is a healthy meal too, but you don’t have to take our word about it; all nutrition information is included on the outside packaging. This particular dish has 640 calories, 18 grams of fat, and 46 grams of protein, in case you were curious!

If you are looking for meals that freeze well (your intentions for dinners at home are good ones, but you can’t always ensure your evenings will go as planned), our meal prep descriptions will tell you if the particular dish you are eyeing is freezable! For example, our beef meatballs and polenta is made with three meatballs, marinara sauce, parmesan cheese, and fresh basil accompanied with sweet corn polenta and freezes beautifully.

And finally, because we know that evenings are not the only busy part of your week, we also include a few breakfast dishes on our list! Our menus do change weekly, so these examples we are providing may not always be available, but there will always be something comparable to our breakfast plate. Made with applewood smoked bacon, scrambled eggs, a blend of three cheeses, roasted potatoes, and a side of salsa, this hearty meal will help ease the harried mornings of your weekdays! Simply pop the dish in the microwave (all of our meal prep dishes are reheated by microwave) and continue on to the third and final step—ENJOY!

5 Flavors You’ll Love from Our Weekly Meal Prep Menu

Meal prep has become the fastest growing trend in the nation as Americans from all over the country spend their Sundays creating big batches of their healthiest meals to be divided and served throughout the week. The only problem with this is by the time Thursday comes around, diners find themselves unable to face the same turkey, rice, and veggie dish they have been looking at and dining on every day! Most people will give it up and head to the closest fast food restaurant for a delicious burger and fries, but the smart ones know there is a new meal prep business in town, and Fresh Taste Meal Prep is the direction they are looking! Designed to be healthy, nutritious, and best of all DELICIOUS, we give you the opportunity to spend those precious Sunday afternoon hours napping or watching the big game while providing variety and color to your life. This guide to the five flavors that will make your taste buds stand up and take notice will make you fall in love with meal prep all over again!

Something Spicy to Warm Your Heart

Winter days can be chilly even in the desert, and the best way to warm your insides is with a taste of something spicy. Our New Mexico Green Chile Burger offers just the taste you crave! Not all meal prep is about weight loss, and when you sink your teeth into our juicy burgers topped with cheddar cheese, roasted green chiles, and smoked paprika aioli served on a brioche bun, you won’t be able to think of anything else. Accompanied by a side of roasted sweet potatoes, this burger dish is everything you ever dreamed about. If you’re still a little worried about the fat and calories, drop the cheese, switch to a Beyond burger, and choose lettuce instead of a bun!

Nutritious Meals Can Be Delicious Too

If you have been trying to come up with meal prep ideas on your own, chances are your own meals are a little bland, but our Turkey Stuffed Peppers will perk you right up! Made with locally sourced green peppers that are stuffed with turkey, mozzarella cheese, and tomato sauce, this fresh dish offers all the spice you crave. Our balsamic grilled vegetables are the side dish that takes these sweet peppers to the next level of taste and because this dish freezes well, you might want to order a few extra to tuck away for lunches throughout the week!

The Most Important Meal of the Day

We’ve been told for years that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, and yet we still tend to go with that coffee and donut from the grocery store. Once you try our Breakfast Tacos, however, we think skimping on breakfast will be the last thing on your mind! Made with chorizo sausage (oh, how we love this spicy sausage), eggs, a three-cheese blend, and side of our homemade tomatillo salsa and served with breakfast potatoes, these wonderful handheld breakfast tacos will add a sparkle to a gloomy Monday!

No Need to Skip Taco Tuesday with Fresh Taste Meal Prep

While we are on the topic of tacos, meal prep fans are beginning to realize that there is no need to skip your favorite day of the week now that Fresh Taste Meal Prep is on your side! Start your morning with the aforementioned breakfast tacos; they are good enough to enjoy at lunch as well. For dinner, our Caribbean Shrimp Tacos are fast becoming the taco of the town! Made with jerk seasoned shrimp topped with a sweet and spicy mango sauce and tucked away in our fresh made corn tortillas, this dish is bound to be your one true love.

Your Midday Break Deserves Something Special

You could toss together a turkey and cheese sandwich and a bag of chips to get you through the daily grind, but why would you want to when you know that Fresh Taste Meal Prep offers a Chicken Philly Steak meal that will make your mouth water? Made with shaved chicken breast and topped with sauteed onions, peppers, provolone cheese, all tucked away into a soft and flavorful French roll, the herbed potatoes that accompany this hearty lunch promise to be the flavor that pushes this sweet meal to the next level of wonderful!

Our Meal Prep Gets Better!

As we discussed at the beginning of this guide to flavor, the problem with meal prep is the sameness, and although we have just described some of our favorite flavors, next week it may be all different! Our menus, with a few exceptions, will change on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, and your stomach, soul, and heart will thank us!
