    House Recipe: Turn Your Kitchen Into a Restaurant


    The days of dining out might be on temporary hold, but there are ways to shake your family from their “Stay Home” funk at mealtime. We’ve cooked up a few ideas to restaurantify your kitchen and tell isolation to shove off – Clean Eatz style!

    Taste Test Tapas
    This super simple setup isn’t just fun, but also will get everyone trying different foods. Pick 5 of your favorite family meals. Put a serving of each on small plates, turning the dining room table into a sampling station. Add an extra touch by printing out a menu that explains each dish, letting your crew try the one at a time. Don’t forget to include Paleo Fudge or CE Buckeye bites as closer!

    Dinner & A Movie
    Everyone loves great food and entertainment. Set up a movie-themed dinner night. Maybe an Arnold Wrap Party? Just serve ’em up and cue the Terminator-Predator double feature. Or how about Bowling Night, where everyone builds their own and watches The Big Lebowski? Get creative with your flick selections, and we’ll make sure you have a tasty supporting cast!

    Pizza Party
    Grab some Clean Crust Cauliflower Pizzas and let the pies fly. This healthy, DELICIOUS buffet of cheesy goodness is sure to get the family feeling good. Transform your dining room setting with a plastic, red-and-white checkered tablecloth. Throw on some Italian music, put out the pepper flakes mill, and dim the lights… You’ll swear you’re eating at one of the city’s best pizza joints.

    Food Trivia
    They say you are what you eat, and this idea makes sure they know the ingredients to living life in the moment. Pick 5 to 7 family meals or café menu items. Desserts count too! Make sure you get a range of different flavors, as each will guide the line of questioning. Here are few themed trivia examples you can use in addition to general food facts:

    • Try to list the ingredients of a meal based on taste.
    • Name a movie or song that references the main ingredient of a meal.
    • List five other dishes that use the main ingredient of a meal.

    Introducing Family Meals

    Based on feedback from our customers, we have started to sell family meals. Our family meals are a larger-portioned meal that are intended to feed two adults and two children. 

    The macros printed on the meal are split into four equal portions. So you may consider the two adults are going to eat more than the listed amounts and the two children will eat less. 

    No kids? No problem. Lots of our customers are ordering family meals as a dinner alternative for two. Leftovers can be saved just like any other dinner and reheated the next day for a healthy lunch or dinner. The family meal pricing is a great way to save money on meal prep. 

    Each family meal is served "casserole-style" and will contain a protein, carbohydrate, and vegetable. This allows for a more even and consistent reheating of the meal. We recommend you serve our family meals with a side salad. 

    Our family meals are portioned to serve two adults and two children. We recommend serving our family meals with a salad. 

    • Our family meals are fully-cooked entrees that can be easily reheated for a quick and convenient dinner for four. Let us make life easier for you this week - no shopping, no chopping.
    • Our family meals come frozen in a microwaveable and oven-safe plastic container. Meals can be heated directly in the container or transferred to a 13"x9" baking dish and warmed in the microwave (~12 minutes) or oven (~45 minutes). We recommend taking the meals out of the freezer and placing in the refrigerator the morning you plan to eat the meal, which will reduce the reheating time and cook the meal more evenly. 
    • Your order of four family meals can be stored in your freezer for up to two months so there's no need to worry about waste.
