Heating & Storing


The food is already cooked, you are just heating it. Every item varies slightly, so please see our instructions below.

Microwave

For microwaving, be sure to remove the sleeve, and then with the film on, microwave the meal for two and a half minutes to three minutes. After reheating foods in the microwave oven, allow standing time. Then, use a clean food thermometer to check that food has reached ˚F.

Oven

For the oven, heat the meal at 350 degrees in a foil-covered baking dish for approximately 20-30 minutes. Please do not use the container the meal is delivered in, as it is not oven safe. Then check the food often to make sure it is heated thoroughly, or until it has reached 165 ˚F.

Keeping the meals fresh in a refrigerator is our preferred method of storage. They stay fresh that way, and allow you the flexibility of eating them as you please! If you cannot get to the meals before the eat by date, then please place the meals in the freezer.
