What food can I choose?
Anything you like! If you have a sweet tooth the grab our cakes and Heat & Eat Lean – ‘Clean Treats’, we have full cakes available or you can just grab a selection or them. Order as many combinations as you like to your taste buds.
How long do the meals last?
5 days from the day of cooking (Saturday/Sunday) and then it really depends on where you reside in the country. We are based on the south coast, Chichester, so London and in between can be delivered on a Sunday– Brighton area and in between can also be covered. Unfortunately, because of the way the courier system works, everyone else (nationwide) will be Tuesday via APC.
What if I have food intolerances or allergies?
Let us know! We can recommend the meals that will work for your intolerances and allergies, we work closely with the local EHO (Environmental Health Officer) so make sure contamination is at its lowest it physically can be.
How do I know what each meal contains?
The ingredients are listed on the website in the meal description and they are also on all of the containers that arrive with your meals. (PS. meals are all trackable on My Fitness Pal (MFP))
Where do you source your ingredients?
We source our ingredients locally and pick the best and freshest ingredients to give the meals a vibrant colour and the longest life possible.
What ingredients are used?
Our meals never rule out any ingredients, we try and create all our meals so that they are high in volume and keep you full. The meals are not aimed at a particular diet bracket – keto / low carb etc. just balanced and varied so should give enough choice to suit your needs.
Are meals HALAL?
Unfortunately not, all the meat is cooked in the same kitchen and we do not have the demand currently (FEB, 2019) to cater for this. You can ,still enjoy our desserts, vegan meals and fish dishes.
Do you cater to VEGGIES or VEGANS?
We will always try to update the menu with new items so keep an eye on the site and the socials for these coming back soon!
Can I eat the meals cold?
Yes, all meals are better warm but can definitely be eaten cold if you do not have the ability to get to a microwave – one of my close friends swears by only eating them cold!
How do you heat the meals & how long should I heat the meals for?
The instructions are on the containers that get delivered to you, but you would heat in a microwave for no longer than 3 minutes and your own microwave power will determine whether this is shorter. If you do not have a microwave, take the meal out of the plastic containers and add it to an ovenproof dish and pop in the oven on a low temperature until warmed through.
Can I freeze the meals?
NO, we do not recommend freezing meals, meals with rice should NEVER be frozen as rice can harvest bacteria more than any other ingredient, it’s like a 5-star hotel for it. The defrosting process can also destroy the texture and consistency of the meals, mainly the vegetables and leave an unwelcome amount of water in the container. Some customers have frozen meals but we cannot suggest this is a good idea.
Are the meals GLUTEN FREE?
Most of the meals are gluten-free as this is the simplest of intolerances to remove, having a Mum that is Coeliac I know this all too well.
How many times can you reheat the meals?
ONLY ONCE. Do not heat meals more than once! Food & Hygiene legislation states food can be left out of a fridge for 90 mins and be safe to return so will be fine on your travels to work. Also, our foil lining solution can be reused in your own bags along with the cool pack’s meals get delivered with to keep your meals fresher for longer durations (24hrs).
How can I tell what meals I need?
Contact us! We can guide you not only with meal plans but your total calorie needs for the day. As a quick example, smaller meals would be better for females and larger meals for males, however, this is entirely dependant on YOUR OWN needs with reference to how active you are etc. WE ARE MORE THAN JUST A MEAL PREP COMPANY.
Is it specific to me?
With the above question, we can make it specific yes. We cannot, however, provide fully custom macro meals, we would work a plan around your needs instead,
What are macro and micronutrients?
Micronutrients, as opposed to macronutrients (protein, carbohydrates and fat), are comprised of vitamins and minerals which are required in small quantities to ensure normal metabolism, growth and physical well-being.
Our meals are comprised of the main, macronutrients used for main daily functions and recovery, and also packed full of micronutrients to provide the small support of the body. Most of our meals have at least 2 of your 5 a day in each meal, across 2 meals you will get your full ‘5-a-day’ daily quota.
What time will my meals be delivered?
All meals will be delivered between 09:00-18:00 on Tuesday.
IF YOU ARE NOT GOING TO BE IN, we will leave it with your Parcel Safeplace Room.
