Fresh Meal Plan’s Mission
Food is the introduction to a healthy lifestyle. Our aim at Fresh Meal Plan is to bring freshly prepared healthy and delicious meals into your lifestyle to enhance and sustain a more wholesome existence.
Team Fresh are firms believers in practicing what we preach. We are very passionate about living a healthy well-balanced life and it all starts with your “Diet”. We use this word very carefully, considering this is a permanent way of life, not a fad. Fresh Meal Plan is not a diet system using shakes, pills, cookies, or preserved and packaged meals. We serve purely FRESH food that will allow you to achieve any goals you could possibly have.
The Fresh culinary team is comprised of the highest level five star chefs led by world renowned Culinary Institute of America (CIA, the Harvard of food) graduate Patrick Delaney. Our team is well versed in nutrition giving our Fresh Family plenty of variety with each and every meal delivered making it very easy to maintain a long term healthy life.
Fresh is a personal trainer’s best friend. Ever have a personal trainer, but you just can’t seem to get the results even though you’re doing everything he/she may tell you? It’s not realistic to get a shopping list and cook every meal and expect to sustain a boring diet for the rest of your life. Let Fresh be your best friend. Personal trainers – we would love to work with you, just give us a call…we make the perfect team!
How much time are you spending grocery shopping, prepping meals, cooking and then cleaning up? Your time is worth more than that so why don’t you let us take care of the chores and provide you with our at-home meal delivery service instead? For the same price of weekly groceries we can give you back the gift of time, a precious commodity in today’s 24/7 cycle. And, besides… this is what we do for a living, so take pride in the fact that you are supporting job growth and fueling the economy. That’s time well spent.
We Are Passionate. We Are Healthy. We Are Fresh.
For the first time ever, executive chefs, nutritionists, and personal fitness professionals have designed a fresh meal plan for any individual seeking a healthy eating lifestyle. Whether you are trying to lose weight or just feel great, these well-balanced nutritious meals will save you money, countless hours of grocery shopping, cooking, and searching for health conscious restaurants. 80% of the results you achieve rely on your nutrition. It goes back to the saying “you are what you eat.”
Our Five-Star Country Club Chef has designed a diverse menu that changes with the each season. Our main focus is to offer a variety of delicious, healthy meals, at a very affordable price. At Fresh we provide punctual delivery service to the convenience of your home or workplace, as well as allow for in-store pick up at our Boca Raton location. Each meal is less than 500 calories and is never frozen, canned or packaged. Unlike other meal programs, we do not use any additives or preservatives. Each one of our members will have the opportunity to work one-on-one with our on-staff nutritionist, who is available to consult with each individual in the beginning of their program. They will help you set goals, as well as keep you on track throughout your program. If you want to be healthy, you want to eat Fresh.
Marc Elkman is the Founder and CEO of Fresh Meal Plan. Born in Fort Lauderdale, FL, Marc was a health and fitness enthusiast since his youth. Having secured a personal trainer by the tender age of 11, Elkman would hit the gym before the first bell rang at his middle school. He fondly recalls his friends not really knowing what “working out” was, but was happy to inspire them to get engaged in a fitness routine of their own. He knew then that his passion for getting others interested in living a healthier lifestyle wouldn’t end when school let out. Upon graduating from Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL, Marc became a certified Personal Trainer, working out with the elderly at the Boca Raton Polo Club, where unbeknownst to him, his future partner, Chef Patrick Delaney was working as the Executive Chef. At the same time, he was recruited by the NCAA and was playing as a coveted left-handed pitcher. While training, Elkman was struggling between lifting heavy at the gym and staying limber enough to be a pitcher. After playing one year of college baseball, Marc began doing All-Natural Bodybuilding shows and at the age of 19 he started competing at the national level winning and placing in multiple shows. During this time Marc soon realized the correlation between the power of food and his successes, “I would strip my body down of fat and show at 3% body fat, accomplishing it all mainly by diet, sleep and training,” says Elkman. Marc attended college at FAU throughout his bodybuilding career, wherein he was pursing a degree in Business Administration with a minor in Hospitality Management. In 2011, when Elkman was only 24 years old, he proposed the Fresh Meal Plan concept to Delaney, who agreed to be a Founder. Their mission was simple: “to offer a delicious, affordable, high-end meal program that will change as many lives as possible.” Fresh Meal Plan currently delivers in the South Florida and Orlando markets, and will further expand to Tampa, St. Petersburg, and the New York metro area in the near future. Elkman, who is now 27, has a fiancée and currently resides in South Florida.
