We do offer subscription services for our meal packages only at this time. They are optional and offer a 10% savings.
Do you accept packaging or products back?
Due to COVID-19 as well as food safety regulations, we do not accept the return of product, materials or packaging. If you need a refund please see our returns and exchanges policy.
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, remove plastic cover & 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 must remove the plastic cover and any sauces. 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 new meal packaging is not suited for recycling. Other plastic containers are recyclable. If you receive delivery, the silver pouches aren't recyclable but the fiber insulation can be recycled. As we work to improve our packaging we are always looking for more sustainable options.
Do you have gift certificates available?
Yes, you can purchase and redeem gift certificates online and in-store.

We are currently delivering right to your door throughout Ontario and Quebec. Stay tuned, we are constantly expanding our delivery radius based on demand. See our Shipping page for a detailed list of delivery areas, pricing and timing and more FAQs.
Can I select my delivery time?
As the delivery time is heavily influenced by the number of orders and unpredictable factors like traffic and weather, we are unable to provide estimates until the day of your delivery. You will receive an email first thing in the morning on the day of your delivery giving you a 30-minute window of when to expect your order. Until then, any estimate is subject to change by a matter of hours.
What if I won't be home during delivery?
We now deliver food in insulted boxes which will be left at your door. You do not need to be home for delivery. You will receive an email the morning of your delivery letting you know when to expect it that day as well as after our driver has dropped off your package.

Food Freezing & Freshness
How long will my meals stay fresh?
We prepare all of our food fresh to order. All our meals will come with a freeze by date right on the package. Please ensure to take note of individually best before dates and freeze food as necessary.
How much should I order at a time?
We typically recommend ordering your meals, snacks and baked goods weekly. Think of it like a trip to the grocery store where you want to stock up for the week without buying more than you can eat!
Are your meals freezer friendly?
Yes, you can freeze almost all of our ketogenic meals and pantry items. You'll see a freezer-friendly icon on the product descriptions for items that are safe to freeze. Please note Konjac noodles (like those in our Pad Thai) are not freezer friendly.
Are your sauces freezer friendly?
Yes, you can freeze your sauces that come with your keto friendly meals. The fats will separate after thawing and may not return to their original consistency, but will taste the same. We recommend letting your sauce thaw (do not heat) and shaking or stirring them before consumption.
How long will the meals last in my freezer?
It is best to consume frozen meals within 2 months.
