Personal Prep FAQs
In the summer of 2019, I decided to start a meal prepping business after being asked hundreds of times what to eat, what I was eating, how did I make what I was eating, etc. Hence, Personal Prep was born.
Personal Prep: Real Food Made Simple, is my meal prepping service that cuts time from your life and allows you to enjoy real, whole food based meals in a fraction of the time.
You pick the meals, I do the shopping and the prepping, and deliver them to you. Simple thaw, cook according to directions, and enjoy!
Today, I wanted to answer a few common questions that I receive about the Personal Prep meals. You can find the full ordering information and menu here.
Q1: What common allergens are Personal Prep meals free of?
All the meals are free of gluten, grains, soy, dairy, nuts, and added sugar. Only the egg bakes have eggs added. In addition, if you have specific food sensitivities or allergies, I can (in most cases) adjust accordingly.
Q2: Do you have vegan/vegetarian options?
I believe that meat plays an important role in our health and shouldn't be eliminated from the diet most of the time. Therefore, I do not have any vegan/vegetarian options. Plus, seafood and grains do not freeze well or cook in the slow cooker well either most of the time, so quality would be impacted.
Q3: Are these meals fully cooked?
The egg bakes that I offer are delivered fully cooked and delivered frozen. The marinaded meat, kabobs, and slow cooker meals are delivered raw and need to be thawed for best results before cooking according to directions.
Q4: Where do you deliver?
I deliver in Lincoln, NE, to your home or an agreed upon neutral location.
Q5: Can these be cooked in the Instant Pot?
The slow cooker meals may be cooked in the Instant Pot; HOWEVER, I have not tested this method of cooking with any of the recipes, so I would proceed with caution. I would research for yourself to learn more (like this article).
Q6: Can I cook the meals from frozen?
I recommend thawing the meals in a large bowl overnight or for a few days for best results. If you cook from frozen, uneven results may occur. However, I have had clients do this, so feel free to experiment for yourself if you desire.
Q7: How soon in advance do I need to order?
Usually 1-3 days are needed between ordering and delivery.
Q8: Do you have calorie counts/macro breakdowns for each item?
I do not typically recommend counting calories or macros, but rather focus on real, whole foods. I do have calorie estimates if you desire, but they are subject to individual variance of each meal.
