About our Recipe Kits
Our kits combine fresh, whole, nutrient rich ingredients to provide delicious and nutritionally balanced meals.
Most of our meals are between 400-700 calories, with balanced amounts of protein, carbohydrates and vegetables and fats. We provide nutritional information on our meals so you can make informed choices.
No “extras” in our ingredients
We don’t use ingredients with preservatives, fillers or added color. What we don’t supply: artificial ingredients produced in laboratories – like high fructose corn syrup, MSG, or manufactured preservatives.
Local, Organic and Regionally appropriate sourcing
We source many of our ingredients locally – because this ensures the freshest, most nutritious, and flavorful supply.
This also supports communities of independent growers by re-investing profits back into the community – this way they can keep selling their products directly to people – rather than processing plants.
Some ingredients (like spices) cannot be sourced locally. In these cases, we source from suppliers with reputable supply chains.
We supply organic ingredients and in some cases conventional with organic practices. We make our decisions based on quality, methodology, and values. The produce we source is not treated with synthetic inputs, including herbicides, pesticides, fungicides and fertilizer.
Our meats are sourced from vendors we trust.
- The animals are hormone and rBGH free, free of antibiotics, and free of feed that contains animal byproducts.
- Animals are butchered in a State, County or USDA approved facility.
- These practices are best for animals, people who eat meat (pasture raised meats have decreased fat content as well), and the people who live on and near farms.
- We source seafood according the Monterey Bay Aquarium’s Seafood Watch guidelines
Our top priority is freshness. So we use materials to ensure this. (Did you know that compostable bags make leafy greens wilt? That’s why we test things.) Our insulated bags, ice packs and plastic ingredient bags preserve your fresh ingredients while they’re in transport.
You can take part in this reusable system with a small deposit that helps us keep track of our bags. We sanitize and reuse our ice packs and glass jars. Simply return your reusable packaging to the bins provided. We are constantly researching new packaging to continue to reduce our impact while providing the most convenience and best quality to you. Please let us know if you have any questions.
You will want to get your perishables into cold storage as soon as it is convenient. Perishables will be fine with the ice packs provided till evening if they are kept in a temperate environment during the day.
