Our meals are sealed to maintain freshness for 3-4 days while refrigerated. We recommend placing the meals you will be consuming in the next 4 days in the fridge, the rest in the freezer and rotate as you are ready to consume. In the freezer the meals are good for up-to 1 month.
Heating is simple. Place your meal in the microwave for 2-3 min on high. The packaging will provide a natural steaming function and provide robust flavor. You may need to increase time to 5-7 min if cooking out of the freezer. You may also remove the cover and place the meal into the oven and bake on 420 degrees for 12-14 min. If frozen, additional time may be needed.
Yes. Some simple changes can be fullfilled but typically our standard menu doesn’t allow for substitutes or customization. However, at the end of the checkout process you are able to simply navigate to the “modification radio button and space” and you can customize your meals here for a small $2/meal fee. Things like requesting a single specific vegetable, requesting no veggies and extra carbs (upto 1cup), requesting no carbs and extra veggies, requesting a specific carb (we will do our best to accomodate, if we can’t we will let you know and can initiate a refund if there is no resolution due to things like seasonality and availability.) .
At The Purposed Athlete Meals we offer multiple protein options for our customers but unfortunately some of the proteins are a bit higher in cost vs others. The higher cost proteins such as Salmon, Pork, Steak, and Shrimp are considered premium proteins. Adding premium protein meals to your orders will incur a $2-5.50/meal upcharge fee. You can have unlimited amounts of Chicken, Turkey, and Talapia meals in your orders without incurring a premium fee.
