How It Works
Heat & Eat
Our meals are designed to be heated in the microwave since they already arrive fully cooked. Keep in mind, though, that microwaves, unlike people, are NOT created equal, so some may require shorter or longer heating time than others. You know your microwave best.
- Microwave- Vent container, microwave in 90-second increments. Stir the meal (if applicable) after each heating.
- Stove-top- Transfer to skillet, heat on low for 5-10 minutes. Add water if necessary and cover.
- Oven- Transfer to oven-safe pan. Bake at 325 for 15-20 minutes. Carefully remove, enjoy
Pro Tip #1: Drain excess water. If the meal doesn't have an absorbent carb (such as rice), there may be excess water in the container after heating. Just pour the water out.
Pro Tip #2: "Slack out" the meals. If you are planning to eat a meal within 48 hours, store in the refrigerator. Thawing the meal out a little will allow for a more consistent cook with less microwave time!
Pro Tip #3: Breakfast dishes should be placed in the microwave for a shorter period of time, start at 30-45 seconds and check if the desired temperature has been reached., enjoy.
Pro Tip #4 Sauces: If meals contain a sauce cup, remove lid, place in microwave for 2-3 seconds, or until loose enough to pour. Pour the desired amount of sauce over meat, follow heating instructions. Enjoy.
Pro Tip #5: Hot or Cold:When it comes to enjoying your meals, you can have them hot or cold. All prepared meals are fully cooked. Some breakfast items such as Overnight oats or Ricotta bowls taste better cold!
