Frequently Asked Questions

Do your recipes really take just 10 minutes to prep?


Pre-cut, pre-washed and pre-mixed ingredients means less work for you. If you’re new to the recipe or a bit rusty in the kitchen, it may take closer to 15 minutes the first time you make a dish. But every recipe is rigorously tested for accurate prep and cook times, so it really shouldn’t take you more than 10 minutes once you’ve made the dish a couple times.




How many people do your dishes serve?


Most of our dishes serve 3 to 4 people. Let us know how many people you want to feed and we'll find the right dishes for you. If you're serving just 1 or 2 people, we recommend selecting leftovers so that you get access to more dishes.




How much does shipping cost?


Shipping is free on orders above $35, and $4.99 for orders less than $35. This is the same as getting grocery delivery with Whole Foods directly.




Do I need a subscription?


No! You can order just the dishes you want, whenever you want them. There are no subscriptions or forced weekly ordering of meals.




When will I receive my ingredients?


When placing an order, you can specify a preferred delivery day and time. Once your order is placed, we will process it with Whole Foods and send you a confirmation for the delivery window. Typically, ingredients will be delivered within 1 to 2 days.
