Our stores are the epicenters of the community. We maintain a positive environment for in-store subscription pickups, or even just a place to come to work or socialize.

Do you offer any gluten-free options?

You bet – all of our meals are gluten-free! We currently have several 100% grain-free/dairy free options as well. There may be gluten-containing ingredients in the facility in which the meals are manufactured, but cross-contaminations are rare.

What can I expect during my consultation?

The Project Lean Nation consultation is what we believe sets us apart from being just another meal service. During your free consultation, our nutritional coaches will discuss your goals and/or challenges and help you create a nutritional strategy that will get you where you want to be. You will also receive a body composition scan using our Inbody 270. This will provide you with insights on your body composition, hydration and provide us everything we need to make an ideal caloric recommendation based specifically on your goals.

How do I heat the meals?

Heating Instructions 

Your meals will come to you fully prepared so you just have to heat ‘em up in the microwave.  Generally, the meals heat up in about 3-4 minutes (depending on your microwave). If you’re unsure, start at 2 minutes and heat in 30–second increments until the meal reaches an inner temperature of 165° F.

Our, or preferred methods are to place the food in a skillet on medium heat or on a baking sheet in the oven at low heat for a couple of minutes – just as needed to warm thoroughly.  We recommend allowing the meal to rest 1-2 minutes after re-heating to reduce any excess moisture

*All meal containers include detailed cooking instructions*

*Disclaimer: We cannot offer reimbursement or resolution if the meals are warm as a result of the package sitting out*
