Do I Need an Account to Order? How Do I Set One Up?

Accounts do no hold payment information, they simply save your address and contact info so you do not have to enter it with each order. This makes check out faster.

You may order without setting up an account - it is not required. Simply fill out all your shipping (delivery) information after clicking "checkout" from your shopping cart (no need to click "log in").

Once you fill out your information if you check the box "save this information for faster check out" at the bottom of the Shipping information you can then create an account to use in the future. Then head on to the second page "shipping options" to choose your pick up or delivery and pay. That's it!

Or if you'd like us to create an account for you, we can do that and email you an invite to create your own password (we can't choose those for you for security reasons). Then you can log in for checking out. Please email us to request this service.

How Do I Return My Mason Jars and Get My Jar Credit?

There is a deposit of $1.25 on each jar included in the price of the meals. You may keep the jars or return them for credit, though we highly encourage you to return the jars with the white lids and red rubber rings. We can reuse these indefinitely for our vacuum sealing of soups and stews.We love to reduce packaging waste.

Return the clean mason jars with rings and lids to us at any pick up site during regular pick up site hours (or in your delivery cooler). We will then email you a gift card with credit for jars returned each week that you may use on any future order of your choice.

Jars returned to non-Broomfield pick up locations are collected the following week and we send gift cards then (one week delay). Jars returned to Broomfield are credited the same week they are returned.

Enter your gift code by copying and pasting from your email into the checkout field that says "Gift card or discount code" and hit “APPLY.” This link is located in the yellow/orange area under the photo list of menu items you are purchasing and appears after you have hit "check out" from your shopping cart.

You may use as many gift card codes per order as you like. Simply repeat the process to apply each one.

If you do not plan to order again, let us know and we can refund your card within 60 days of your last order. Otherwise you may come to the Broomfield kitchen to collect cash. Please give us a heads up you will be doing so.


Do You Have Options for Gluten Free, Dairy Free, Paleo and other Specific Dietary Needs?

Yes! We pride ourselves on offering a range of options for special dietary needs on each menu. All of our meal options are tagged with categories including “gluten free,” “dairy free”, “vegetarian”, “vegan”, “GAPS friendly”, “Paleo friendly”, “kid friendly” (meaning mild flavors), “easy office lunch” and “freezable”.Use the search box by inputting one or more of these tags to view all of the dishes that meet your needs. Example: if you are allergic to gluten and dairy, type in the search: gluten free, dairy free and press enter. Or simply click on the meals by category (Main, Side etc) on the left side of the main store page. At the bottom of each category page you will see the list of associated tags for those meals. Click on any of them to show meals that meet that requirement.

What are your Serving-size Guidelines?

The majority of our meals will be packaged in mason jars. A quart serves about 2-3 people as a main or 4 as a side. Each pint serves two (or makes a great lunch size if you're really hungry!). You can order as many jars as you may need.  All other non-mason jar meals` have the number of servings in their description.

How Do I Heat Your Meals? Can I use the Microwave?

All our meals are labeled with their heating instructions. We suggest microwave alternatives in our instructions as the microwave is not our first choice for heating. If you would like to use the microwave, you most certainly can!  Microwaves can be especially convenient if eating our meals for lunches at work.

How do I find meals for my specific dietary needs?

All of our products are tagged with categories including "gluten free," "dairy free", "vegetarian", "vegan", "GAPS friendly", "Paleo friendly", "kid friendly" (meaning mild flavors), "easy office lunch" and "freezable". 

Use the search box by inputting one or more of these tags to view all of the dishes that meet your needs. Example: if you are allergic to gluten and dairy, type in the search: gluten-free, dairy-free.  Or simply click on the meals by category on the left side of the main store page. At the bottom of each category page you will see the list of associated tags for those meals. Click on any of them to show meals that meet that requirement.


Is Your Kitchen Certified Gluten-Free?

No, our kitchen is not strictly gluten-free. Items labeled gluten free, dairy free etc are made with clean, sterilized equipment with non-allergenic ingredients following best non-contamination practices.  We cannot guarantee that any product is 100% gluten free, dairy free or the like.


When Do You Cook My Meals? Do You Make Everything from Scratch?

 We cook all your meals to order every week. All our food is prepared cooked within 48 hrs of pick up, the majority of it within 30 hrs. We make everything from scratch with the exception of a couple items like tortillas and our fresh gluten-free pasta, which we source locally. Some of our sauces, stocks, and seasonal items we preserve (like tomatoes) we prepare ahead and freeze for later use.


Is Your Packaging Environmentally Conscious?

Yes. To reduce waste and be as environmentally conscious as possible, we pack meals in glass mason jars that you may return for reuse (and a jar credit), clear compostable Eco Products containers, and recyclable metal tins.


Will My Meal Always Look Like the Photos?

While we strive to take pictures of all our food, it takes a long time to build a database. We sometimes use stock photos that may not reflect our food exactly. We always aim for consistency, but our dishes will also vary because we get everything fresh and locally as possible. Ingredient sources and the ingredients themselves change with the seasons.  Our product descriptions and ingredient lists are the most accurate description of what you will receive, and the pictures help to give an idea. If you have any questions of what an particular item you are considering ordering may be like, please fee free to contact us.
