First, we are a subscription service.
- Once you sign up for our subscription program, you will receive meals each week ( or every other week) unless you otherwise pause or cancel your subscription.
Second, you have a weekly deadline.
- Because we proudly ship tens of thousands of meals each week — and fresh meals, at that — we need 5-6 days to plan your next batch of meals into our production schedule before the meals are delivered. For this reason we ask you make any changes or skip your order, prior to being billed for your order. Once you are billed, we will begin the process on our end to source all of the fresh ingredients for your meals.
Third, you can self-manage nearly every aspect of your subscription.
- Because we know life is busy, we allow you maximum ability to plan and customize your subscription, including planning future deliveries up to 7 weeks in advance! On a weekly basis, you can also change the number of meals you'll receive, change the delivery address for a specific order, or update your billing information at anytime right from your subscription portal.
Fourth, you should review your menu every week.
- When you sign up with us, you choose the meals you want for your first delivery, at which point we take that same menu and duplicate it across the other deliveries that are planned into our system when you sign up. You want to make it a habit to review your menu before your next order's weekly deadline to make sure it contains the meals you want since we do phase out meals from time-to-time.
Fifth, you can skip a week or pause your subscription.
- If you're out of town for a week or two, or simply don't want to receive meals for a period of time, you can easily skip a week of delivery or pause your subscription to stop being charged and stop receiving meals. Again, please remember to do this prior to your billing date. Once the order is billed it will not be possible for you to cancel the order in your subscription portal. You will be able to cancel all future billing at anytime.
We are a subscription service. When you sign up with us, you are charged every week and have food shipped to you every week by default - unless, of course, you choose to skip a week of food or pause or cancel your subscription. We also offer a bi-weekly option during checkout.
When you do sign up, you will notice in your account that, aside from the meals you selected for your first order, we also display seven orders into the future for you, with pre-selected menus that basically duplicate your original order.
The menu we select for each order is based on the meals you had selected during your first order. You are free to go in and update the meals for any future week to whatever you desire, provided you do so by the order cutoff date for each week. We will even send you an email the day prior to your billing to remind you to make changes in your account if necessary. (We sometimes allow a little extra time to change meals aside from that, but just take notice of the deadline.)
Our main goal is to make eating healthy as convenient and easy as possible!
We do offer a one time option during the checkout process. If you subscribe to our service we do have a two week minimum with the subscription. With our subscription you will also receive 10% off every week until you cancel!
At anytime, if you don't want to receive meals, you can pause your subscription or skip any upcoming billing dates.
Just bear in mind the following:
- You cannot pause or cancel the first delivery of a new subscription, because, at the time of your order, those meals were planned into our system and resources assigned for them.
- Pausing or cancelling a subscription would not impact orders for which you have already been charged, since, at that point, those orders have entered our production process.
At this time we do not have the ability to send out less then 7 meals in an order. Our team has put in A LOT of work to ensure our boxes are the perfect fit and can properly transport your meals while maintaining freshness. If you do wish to try our meals with no commitment you can order any 7 meals that you would like and make sure to choose the “Once Time Shipment” option during checkout.

We ship all packages with UPS. UPS is able to deliver our meals to the entire country in a maximum of two days in transit. It can sometimes be expensive to ship meals across the country so quickly. For this reason we do charge exactly what UPS charges us in order to make sure the meals arrive as quickly as possible.

Yes we ship via UPS, as long as the hotel is in the US and does accept packages for guests. When you are placing your order you will want to make sure that you check out our shipping schedule, which can be found in our FAQ section. If you are on a subscription you will want to make sure that you update your billing address to the desired location. If the room is not under your name and is under the name of a spouse, mother, brother, etc. make sure you include that name as part of the shipping address. Hotels will not accept a package if the name on the package does not match up with the name on the reservation.

The time when your meals are delivered can vary and depend on the shipping carriers route, as well as how many packages they have to handle and when they’ll be servicing your area.

Nevertheless, please know that we design our packages to withstand 60 full hours in shipping – so, either way, your food will arrive fresh!
We are not able to guarantee that the shipping carrier will be able to follow very specific requests when it comes to delivering your packages. When the package leaves our facility, the package is out of our direct control and even the carrier has to rely on their delivery drivers when it comes to how packages are delivered.
If you are concerned about your package being accurately delivered, there are a few possible options:
- 1. You could leave a note for the carrier at the delivery location with any specific instructions that you’d like to convey.

There is no customization of our entrees. If you would like to have a custom meal, please build out a meal on the custom meals menu that we offer.
Many of our meals have two portion size options. We like to offer these different sizes because everyone does not require the same amount of food to reach their goals. In most cases the half portion size will be exactly half the size of the full portion meals. Full-portioned meals will come with 6-8 Oz of protein and 1.5-2.5 cups of sides depending on the meal choice. Once you pick your meal and portion size from the menu our team of chefs will weigh out each ingredient and portion them to help you achieve your goals!

As you can imagine, shipping costs represent a large portion of our expenses, since we're shipping 10-15-pound boxes very long distances. We have worked with our shipping carriers to get the most cost effective shipping prices in the industry. Many companies charge you a premium for their meals and may offer a free shipping discount to get you in the door. We do opt to pass through the shipping charge to you in an effort to be as transparent as possible.
Please note if you order over 25 meals, the shipping price may increase as we will need to send multiple boxes to fulfill your order.
We are actively working to develop a west coast facility in order to lower the shipping rates to the entire country.
