Frequently Asked Questions
How does this work?
The short answer is we do all the planning, shopping, and cooking and all you do is buy the meals and pop them into the microwave when you're ready to eat! You can stop by the store during business hours and pick from the meals we have available for purchase in the cooler with no preorder necessary.
What is meal prep?
The weekly preparation of individual fully cooked meals designed to keep you fed for the entire week.
How many servings are in each meal?
Every meal is intended to feed one person for one meal. However, some meals (depending on your appetite) may end up feeding you for two meals. Breakfasts are served in 12 oz bowls. Lunch/dinners are served in 24 oz bowls. Salads are served in 32 oz. bowls. Our desserts and breads are usually packaged in 1/2 dozen or larger quantities and are intended to last 1-2 people an entire week.
What type of food do you serve?
All of the KETO meals we serve are well suited for any type of carbohydrate restricted eating plan. Whether you identify as typical low carb, ketogenic diet, low-carb high-fat (LCHF), Low-Carb Paleo, Atkins diet, or any other variation of carbohydrate restricted diets, these meals will be perfect for your plan. We've recently added NON-KETO options as well. Most of our NON-KETO options will typically fall under the Paleo or Clean Eating category because we believe in eating whole, fresh foods. However, we may occasionally offer a cheat meal just because!
Will I lose weight by eating your meals?
That ENTIRELY depends on you. We provide nutritional information on each item on the website as well as on a sticker on each bowl. If you are restricting carbohydrates, monitoring ketone production, or tracking macros, etc., then yes, you absolutely can lose weight eating our meals. This requires you being in tune with your body, your requirement, and what numbers or tracking mechanisms your body requires to achieve weight loss. If you are eating our meals and still consuming things like sugar, carbohydrates, and alcohol in excess, you might actually gain weight while eating our meals. Our goal is to provide you with a tool to use in a program that works for you. We cannot guarantee weight loss or health to anyone, you are in control of your health!
What type of ingredients do you use?
We use primarily real whole foods & fresh ingredients. 90% of the vegetables we use are fresh from the produce section that we purchased the day before cooking with them. Occasionally we may use frozen vegetables if we are unable to find enough fresh veggies. The only canned vegetable we ever use are diced tomatoes. We never use packaged seasonings due to the added fillers that add sugars and carbohydrates. We mix our own seasoning blends to ensure they are keto and paleo friendly. We also make most of our own dressings and sauces
Do you provide nutritional information (macros) for each meal?
Yes, we provide calories, fat, protein, carbohydrates, fiber, and net carbohydrates. The nutritional information is listed on our "This Week's Menu" section and also on a label on each meal you purchase.
Can you customize my meals? (i.e. leave off certain ingredients that I don't like)
Unfortunately, no. We cook our meals in very large quantities so we're unable to customize a single bowl.
How do I store and prepare my meals?
Store your meals in the refrigerator and heat them in the microwave for 1-2 minutes depending on how hot you like your food. If you have not eaten a meal by the "use by" date, you can freeze them. Heat a frozen meal from 5-6 minutes. Do not heat meals on the stove or in the oven unless you remove the food from the plastic container and put it in a pan or baking dish appropriate for one of those methods.
Can I freeze my meals?
Yes, you can freeze any meal unless it is a salad or a wrap. Our containers are not airtight so if you plan on freezing them long term, our suggestion is to put the entire container inside of a freezer safe ziploc bag and sealing it.
Can I just stop in and grab meals anytime?
Yes! Our in-store cooler is ALWAYS stocked with a variety of meals to choose from. No preorder necessary!
