How Many Meals Should I Order?

Things to consider when ordering meals from your personal chef:

How many meals per week would you like to have prepared (2-7)?

Our singles and couples usually don't need 5 to 7 meals a week.  They just need a little help getting 1-3 healthy, delicious dinners on the table per week; so a typical plan is what we call a 5 x 2.

Five entrees x two servings rendering 10 complete meals which can be consumed over a 2 to 3 week period since most entrees are freezer friendly.

How many servings do you need per entree?


If you are single, perhaps you want two servings per entree, this way you can  stretch meals into two weeks for a better value.

Most of our families will  order 4 to 5 entrees with 4-6 servings bi-weekly, depending on family size and if they would like leftovers for lunches or individual meals for their busy children when they cannot eat together.
