Frequently asked questions

Can you tailor a meal plan to my specific macronutrient requirements?

All of our portion sizes are standardised for consistency, however we have created food guides so you can do the maths and fit our meals into your daily requirements. To see these guides please visit our Food Information page.

Can I switch my carbs for an extra veg portion?

Yes. Simply tick 2 veg options in your online form.

Can you deliver my food hot?

No. To maintain freshness we deliver all of our meals chilled. Meals are best enjoyed re-heated in the microwave for 3 minutes, but they can also be eaten cold.

How long can I keep the meals for?

All of our meals should be consumed within 3 days. The meals can be frozen but for maximum taste we recommend eating them whilst they’re fresh.

How do I re-heat the meals?

3 minutes in the microwave.

Is your food organic?

Some of our food is organic and we use organic ingredients where possible, however we focus on providing maximum value to customers and in order to keep prices low we cannot use all organic ingredients.
