Only With RealEats

Although you won’t have to lift a finger, with RealEats you’re still the boss. After signing up, you can choose the plan that suits you best, whether you only want dinner ready or you’d like them to take care of all your breakfasts too.

The RealEats weekly menu includes 22 recipes. There are 3 Featured Weekly Chef Selections that the chefs design and update every week, 15 Dinner Selections and 4 Breakfasts.

The minimum plan is for 4 dinners but you can decide to receive up to 12 each week. The same numbers apply to the dinner + breakfast plan.

RealEats partnered with FedEx for their shipping and your food will arrive either Tuesday or Wednesday depending on your ZIP code. The thermally insulated meal boxes contain meals that are vacuum-sealed using the sous-vide technique: the BPA-free, plasticizer and phthalate-free plastic pouches are the same quality as those used in high-end gourmet restaurants.

As well as delicious meals, inside the box you will also find cards that include information about ingredients, farming, and community. RealEats meals stay fresh for 7 days in your fridge.

RealEats doesn’t offer specific diet plans like vegetarian, vegan, or keto but new menus are always on the making, so keep your eyes peeled!

How Does RealEats Work?

Once you receive your box, you can rest assured that you’ve already done most of the work.

All you need now is a large pot and water: bring the water to a simmer and check the instructions to see how long you need to heat the meal pouches in the water for. Usually, proteins will be ready in 6 minutes and sides will only take 3.

RealEats advises against freezing the pouches as all meals are carefully prepared to be eaten fresh.

What People Are Saying

You can really taste the quality of the ingredients. I couldn’t be more satisfied with RealEats.
Josephine Lincoln, NE
They’re game changers, the service and meals are so much better than anything I had tried before.
Erika Richmond, VA
I don’t really know my way around the kitchen and have no time to sign up for cooking classes. Frozen meals made me feel bored and unhealthy but RealEats fixed it in just a few weeks.

RealEats Pricing

RealEats makes it easy to figure out pricing. Want breakfast and dinner only on workdays? Or maybe dinner every night? Simply pick the plan that suits you best.

Prices are on the higher end of the market average. However, remember that you won’t have to spend more than a few minutes in the kitchen every night and that delivery is always free.

You can also cancel or skip your box anytime you need to.

Customer Support

Not only RealEats keeps their cooking process simple and the at-home heating easier than eating candy but they also created informative videos and a comprehensive FAQ list that you will find in their website’s help center.

If that’s not enough and you still have questions, you can always get in touch with the customer service team via email or phone:

Is RealEats Worth It?

It’s not that easy to find a meal box service that will ship freshly cooked meals that are focused on top-shelf ingredients and ready in under 6 minutes. It gets even harder to find one that commits to recipes worthy of a starred restaurant and to never use frozen or processed foods.

Of course, the quality is reflected in the price tag. Although still reasonably priced, RealEats is certainly not the cheapest meal box around. If you are on a tight budget or prefer to play a more active role in the kitchen, there are options out there that would suit you better. Check out our meal box reviews and find your favorite today.
