How much is delivery?

How long will my food stay fresh?

For optimal freshness consume meals within 5-7 days from prepared date noted on each meal. Keep meals in the refrigerator at a holding temperature of 40 degrees or below. If you are not planning to eat your meals within 5-7 days we recommend freezing them, frozen meals can be kept for 10-14 days. Meals must be eaten immediately after being defrosted (after thawing meals do not refreeze).

What is the minimum order size?

here is none! If you want one meal, that is okay.

Are the meals Gluten Free, Organic, Hormone, Antibiotic-free, and Preservative free?

We are a full gluten-free meal prep company. We do not offer an organic menu, however, when shopping for supplies, we always pick the best ingredients that are at peak freshness. There are times we source organic but our number one guarantee is that it’ll always be fresh and all natural. All of our meats are hormone, and antibiotic free. We do not use preservatives.

Why are we the healthiest?

We only use fresh ingredients and cook absolutely everything from scratch. Fresh fruits, veggies, herbs, and spices are how we create our marinades, custom sauces, and seasonings. We cook everything with 100% extra virgin olive oil and serve nothing fried ever. No salt added, no sugar added, and no flour of any kind.

Do all meal plans have the subscription service available?

Yes, they do. No matter what meal type, frequency, or style you may get your meals in a weekly subscription so that you don’t have to remember to order.

What type of fish do we use?

We use cod loins, tilapia filets, and fresh Alaskan or Canadian salmon (skin off and deboned)
