Frequently Asked Questions

When do I order?

We're a weekly meal prep service so our deadline to order is every Monday at 5 pm. You'll receive your order the coming Wednesday (yes, that's about 48 hours or less after our deadline!) You don't have to wait until Monday to order, plan ahead by ordering your meals in advance. Better yet, hop onto the subscription bandwagon with us and rest easy because you'll have healthy meals at your door every Wednesday!

When & where do I pick up my order?

We multiple free pick up locations: (1) The Kitchen in Meridian - 48 E Fairview Ave., Meridian, ID 83642 | Pick up from 5 - 7 pm every Wednesday. (2) Elevate Mind Body Studio - 314 Caldwell Blvd, Nampa, ID 83651 | Pick up from 4 - 8 pm every Wednesday. (3) Jack City Fitness - 21 N Allumbaugh St, Boise, ID 83704 | Pick up from 5 - 7 pm every Wednesday. (4) F45 Meridian West | Ideal for members to pick up during Wed class times only. (5) Stewart Nutrition - 1503 Blue Lakes Blvd N Suite 100, Twin Falls, ID 83301 | Pick up from 5 - 7 pm every Wednesday.

What if I can't make my pick up time?

If you chose to pick up at the kitchen and you can't make it during the given time frame, your meals will be available at Jax Nutrition in Meridian from 10 am to 8 pm beginning Thursday. This is an emergency option only, not an option you should plan for weekly due to limited refrigeration space. If you chose to pick up your meals at Elevate Mind Body Studio in Nampa, your order will remain there for you during their regular business hours until you come to get them. If you don't pick up your order by the following Wednesday, your order will be thrown away.

Where do you deliver?

In the Treasure Valley, we deliver prepared meals to Boise, Eagle, Meridian, Garden City, Star, Middleton, Kuna, Nampa, and Caldwell. We also now have a location in Twin Falls and deliver throughout the Magic Valley as well!

When will I get my delivery?

Our Ada County deliveries begin at 4:00 pm on Tuesday night and end at approximately 4:00 pm Wednesday. We HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you leave a cooler or cooler bag for us to put your meals in as we are no longer responsible for the safety of your food after they have been delivered. We have three drivers that serve different areas of the Treasure Valley and we do not begin ringing doorbells until 8:00 am Wednesday morning.

How long can my meals be kept in the fridge?

We personally refrigerate our meals from Wed - Tues. However, our meals taste great after being frozen and defrosted slowly. You can freeze meals that you won't eat for the first 4 -5 days and enjoy them later. We also recommend using your best judgement regarding veggies that tend to soften earlier than others. We buy everything as fresh as possible, but bell peppers and zucchini can become soft faster than some of the other veggies, so it would be best to eat those meals earlier in the week rather than later.

How do I heat my meal?

The easy way: Open the lid to vent and heat 1.5 - 3 minutes in the microwave. Timing depends upon microwave strength. The chef's favorite way to heat a meal is in a hot skillet with a dash of olive oil. Heat just long enough to warm it up and not cook further - you'll think you're eating a freshly homemade meal!

Are your meals organic?

We do not use organic ingredients currently. Our mission has been to make healthy food simple and affordable for as many people as possible, and the reality is that if we go organic that dream is no longer a reality. There may be a time in the future that we offer organic options, but we aren't there just yet.

What do I order if I want to lose weight?

If you're looking to lose weight, you should consider two major factors: what are you eating currently and how much? Losing weight isn't about immediately cutting out all carbs or eating way less calories. More likely than not, cleaning up the TYPES of foods you're eating, removing sugar, and controlling portion sizes will get the ball rolling. We recommend ordering our meals and choosing options that sound delicious so that you'll stick with it for 2 -4 weeks. Evaluate your weight and how you feel at that point. If you're seeing improvement then just stick with it. If you want to see more improvement you can begin eating fewer carbs and possibly smaller portion sizes. Remember, it's about consistency over time and building healthy habits! If you want to get more serious about it, we recommend working with a personal trainer.
