helping you live a vibrant life.

You have a lot of questions. After all, this is your food and wellbeing we are talking about. Take a look below for a list of answers to common questions we get from customers.

about our food.

We focus on real, whole foods and natural forms of fiber in our menu design. We strive for ingredients that are responsibly sourced and local. We work hard to find proteins naturally raised without antibiotics, hormones, and have room to roam. Our fresh, seasonal vegetables are picked up daily. We give you the best so that you can be your best.
Your food is prepared in our on-site, CDC-approved sanitized, commercial-grade kitchen in Dallas, Texas by a highly-trained, certified chef with over 20 years of experience in a gourmet kitchen
We source local suppliers, whole-foods, and nutrient-dense ingredients. The majority of our meals are dairy and soy-free. In our food containing animal products, we include grass-fed meat, free-range poultry, and sustainable fish. Our fresh, seasonal vegetables are picked up daily. We give you the best so that you can be your best.
Each and every meal contains nutrition facts and ingredients on the website under each item’s description page.
We strive to provide the highest quality of food to our customers. We prepare and cook all of the food fresh to order and never jeopardize the taste and quality by freezing our food or using frozen ingredients.
Thanks to our commitment to high-quality control, your food can be kept up to 4-5 days in the fridge. After 4-5 days, you can move them to the freezer to extend the meals. Either way, they will still be flavorful and delicious.
For Bulk items (proteins, carbs, veggies, sauces, etc.): Portion out how much you want in a separate container

For microwave: on HIGH for 1-2 minutes or until heated through.

For Meals: Lift the lid’s corner and microwave for 1.5 - 3 minutes or until heated through.

Ovens: Preheat the oven to 350° F.

Transfer to oven-safe dish; remove sauce 15-17 minutes at 350°F Keep in mind heating times are approximate so make sure the internal meal temperature is 165 degrees.

If you have an item or dish that you would prefer to heat in a skillet, (such as Chili) we recommend to heat/warm it up slowly making sure the internal meal temperature reaches 165 degrees.

If you decide to place meals in the freezer, we would recommend letting them overnight in the refrigerator. The next day the meal will be thawed and you can follow the above heating instructions.

Pick your favorite Proteins, Carbs and Veggies in either 16oz or 24oz options, ready for you to portion and enjoy! Wanting to mix it up? Grab a sauce from our sauces menu to create a new spin on it at home!

about delivery.

You can absolutely return the bags. You can just return the empty bags to the fridge at your chosen pickup location at any time. If it is a home delivery order you can just place them outside your door and we'll grab them on your next home delivery. That way we can sanitize them again for reuse. We also have a weekly contest where we do a drawing for a $50 Gift card from the returned bags. Just leave your order sticker on the bag so we can see your name for the drawing!

We ship freshly prepared food, in special refrigerated cooler boxers. We’ve never freeze our food and we don’t use dry ice. Instead, we use ice gel packs that keep the food at refrigerated temperatures during transit.

We're continually working on lowering our shipping rates so stay tuned for updates.
