Our Plant-Based Meals and Heating Instructions FAQs

We will accept any orders placed until midnight  every Wednesday. Orders made after midnight will be processed and delivered the following week using that week’s menu.

Our meals are designed to keep you feeling full during the day.  They are generous in portion and range from 400 calories to 650 calories per dish.  This serving is recommended by our nutritionist- bigger breakfasts and lunches and smaller dinners.

We use freezer/microwave friendly and recyclable containers. Cooler bags and gel packs are available, if needed.

Upon receiving your delivery, choose the first 2 meals that you would like to enjoy first and refrigerate them, the remaining meals are best kept fresh by freezing them. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight before heating. If we make meals that need to be enjoyed first, they will be numbered 1-3. These meals should then be enjoyed first and the rest kept in the freezer.

Our goal is to take the hassle out of healthy eating, so all you have to do is reheat and enjoy. You can also reheat your food on the stove or in the oven if you prefer.

We recommend heating to 165F for food safety.

All our meals are packed in freezer safe and microwave safe containers but we recommend reheating your food on the stove top or oven if available.

Stove top: Use a pan for dry meals and small pot for stews and soups. Stir until heated through using medium heat.

Oven: Preheat oven to 325F. Transfer meals into an oven safe dish and cover with foil. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until heated through.

Microwave: Heat using 60% - 70% power for 5-8 minutes or until heated through.

*Remember to remove any plastic containers with sauces or dressings when reheating. These containers are not microwave safe.

All our meals are cooked from scratch each week. All meals you receive should be frozen immediately except for 1-2 meals you would like to enjoy first or if they are numbered. Meals that are numbered should be eaten by Tuesday. We do not guarantee freshness after this time.

Unfortunately we cannot accommodate any food allergies. Although we use gluten-free products, we cook in a certified commercial kitchen that is used by other teams who may have used ingredients that include your food allergy. All our equipment and cookware are properly cleaned and sanitized at all times, however for an added safety measure, we cannot accommodate any food allergies.

We do customization for certain food types to remove nightshades or substitute tofu with beans. These will be available when you choose your meal plans. If you need further customization, please email us at info@delectablebyzarlajane.com.
