Heating & Storing


The food is already cooked, so you are just heating it up! Every heating method varies slightly, so please see our instructions:

Microwave:

To microwave, be sure to remove the sleeve and leave the film on. Microwave the meal for two and a half minutes to three minutes. After reheating, let it stand for one minute and then slowly remove the film. Beware of steam or splatter escaping when opening!

To reheat frozen meals, place it in the microwave for 5 minutes (depending on the microwave); let it sit for one minute and then slowly remove the film. Beware of steam or splatter escaping when opening!

Oven:

To heat in the oven, remove the meal from its container and place in an oven-safe dish. Preheat the oven to 375 °F, and bake for 15-20 minutes or until heated through. You may drizzle one - two tablespoons of water over the meal, to prevent losing moisture.

Stovetop:

To heat up on the stove, add a splash of healthy cooking oil to your pan, such as coconut. Add your meal to the pan, and stir on medium heat for 6-7 minutes, or until steaming hot. 

Keeping the meals fresh in a refrigerator is our preferred method of storage. This allows you the flexibility of eating them as you please!

If you cannot get to the meals before the “Enjoy by” Date, then please place the meals in the freezer and enjoy them later! Meals can be in the freezer for up to several months.
