MEALS

Can I choose or customize my meals?

Yes, you can! We offer many plans that are updated by our chefs on a regular basis.

How many portions are your meals?

Right now, all our meals are single serving and mean't to feed one person.
We do not offer family-sized meals at the moment.  Our largest meal plan includes 21 meals, but ordering  multiple accounts lets you mix and match plans to feed your family. 

Where do I find the expiration date on my meals?

Since we don’t use artificial or chemical preservatives, the meals have a refrigerated shelf life of about 3-5 days.

Even though our meals taste best when eaten fresh, you can freeze them if you can’t get to them by 3-5 days. You simply need to add a couple of minutes to the heating time and reheat from frozen, without thawing. We recommend confirming that the food is reheated to 165 degrees, the same as reheating from fresh.
