I recently went to a retreat and was told about RealEats and was so very thrilled to hear about it. Anne told us great things about the meal delivery service, and I was thrilled to try it. After another trip, I was finally able to sit down and work. So I got ready to order my shipment of RealEats and was a little disappointed to read the following statement.
Because RealEats meals are delivered fresh, not frozen, shipping is currently limited to the following states: CT, DE, IL, IN, KY, ME, MD, MA, MI, NH, NJ, NY, NC, OH, PA, RI, SC, TN, VT, VA and WV. I mean I totally get it, and I understand why they can’t ship them even farther than they do, but here’s the cliff notes version of why YOU need to try them.
- It’s a meal delivery service that delivers REAL Food!
- It’s ready in 6 minutes (Hello easy weeknight meals!)
- It’s cheaper than dining out all of the time!
- They have breakfast, lunch and dinner covered!
- Farm-to-Table Seasonal American Menu
RealEats is a weekly subscription that helps you eat healthy, fresh meals in six minutes. Each week, we deliver a thermal insulated box to your door that contains meals sealed inside BPA-free, plasticizer and phthalate free plastic pouches, same quality used by high-end gourmet restaurants for “sous-vide” style cooking. By bringing a large pot of water to a gentle simmer, place pouches in the water and heat based on the time indicated on each menu item (generally six minutes for proteins and three minutes for sides, cold items are ready to eat right out of the bag).
We chose the name RealEats to reflect what we believe to be the most important change in the lives of North Americans coming up in the next five years — a change away from processed, frozen food to natural, sustainably sourced real food and flavors. Big Food equals big on profits and small on quality, nutrition and ethics. That’s good for them, but not so much for our health or our planet. We think it’s important to get behind smaller independent farms (aka the little guy) because that’s where the real food is. So, we built our kitchen in upstate NY, right in the heart of the Finger Lakes agricultural region, and it’s here that we take pride in supporting farms and creating local jobs.
