Frequently Asked Questions
How does it work?
How does the menu work?
Our Weekly Menu is a selection of freshly made 100% ketogenic meal options that you can order from our online store for delivery or pick-up. We release the New Menu on Tuesdays and take orders until the following Monday. Then we shop, chop and cook for the rest of the week so we can deliver it fresh to you. If you want to eat something you see on the Weekly Menu, order it online now, and receive it next week! It might seem like a long wait the first time, but once you are ordering regularly, you'll never have to go without your keto treats again!
If I want to purchase an item that I see online, can I just stop in the store in London and pick it up?
We welcome drop-in shoppers! We always have baked goods, desserts and meals in stock for when you just need a quick lunch to go or want to stock up for the coming week. Many of the items you on see the Weekly Menu won’t be in store until the following week and we do recommend ordering online if there is something you really want to try as we do sell out of some menu items.
When do I receive my order?
We ship from Thursday to Sunday, the timing of food arriving at your door depends on your location.
Are you a subscription service?
No we are not, order as much or as little as you like, and as often as you like!
How much preparation is required?
Almost none! Remove any dips or fresh vegetables, and simply heat your meal either in the microwave or transfer to oven-proof or stove top cooking pans and reheat to reach an internal temperature of 165°F. Plate your meal and enjoy!
How do I reheat my food?
All meals can be reheated either in the microwave or the oven/toaster oven. To reheat in microwave, open a corner of the lid (remove any sauce containers) and microwave for 2 – 4 minutes. For the oven, preheat oven to 375° F, transfer food to oven proof container, and heat for 10 – 15 minutes. We recommend reheating to an internal temperature of 165° F. Exact heating time will vary on personal preference and appliance.
Are your containers heat proof?
Our containers are microwave save but are not safe to put in the oven. You will have to use a different oven-friendly container of your own if heating in the oven.
How do I get in touch with customer service?
Is the packaging recyclable?
All of our packaging is 100% recyclable. Alternatively, you can wash it and reuse it!
Do you have gift certificates available?
Yes, you can purchase and redeem gift certificates online.
