When can I place my order and when will my meals be delivered?
Any time! Orders must be placed by Thursday at 5:00 pm for delivery the following week. Remember, you don't need to wait until the last minute to place your order. :)
We deliver to your home or office on Tuesday, typically between 12pm-4pm. After you place your order, you will receive a delivery reminder with more specifics.
Do I have to order each week?
No, there is currently no minimum or weekly commitment. Of course, we’d like for you to order each week, because we don’t want you to miss one yummy bite, but it’s your choice!
How do I reheat the food?
Our meals and sides come in oven ready packaging with specific instructions for each individual meal. Our black diamond foil packaging can be used in both the microwave and traditional oven to make re-heating a breeze.
Typically, the food takes 30 minutes in a 350* oven to be perfectly hot and ready to enjoy! You can also reheat in the microwave for 3-4 minutes on 50% power - reducing to 50% power helps ensure ensures your proteins are moist and succulent, not “rubbery” from overcooking.
What is a serving?
We use the American Heart Association (AHA) guidelines for each serving with the exception of proteins. AHA recommends 2-3 ounces - our servings include 5-6 ounces of protein.
Grains: 1 slice of bread, 1 ounce of ready-to-eat cereal, 1/2 cup of cooked cereal, rice or pasta (about the size of a 1/2 baseball).
Vegetables: 1 cup of raw leafy vegetables (about the size of a small fist), 1/2 cup of other vegetables or 1/2 cup of vegetable juice., 1/2 cup cooked dry beans.
Fruits: 1 medium fruit (medium is defined as the size of a baseball); 1/2 cup chopped or cooked fruit; or 1/2 cup juice.
How long will the meals stay fresh?
Our meals last up to 5 days in the refrigerator, or can be frozen for up to 2 months. If you freeze a meal, simply allow it to defrost in the refrigerator before reheating.
