To reduce waste and packaging costs, we pack in glass mason jars and metal tins. Please consider returning your jars and recycling these tins. Our "plastic" containers are compostable.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
You may also use discount codes (like for jar credits) with gift cards. Just enter your discount code in the Discount Code field and hit "Apply".
