    TOP 10 REASONS TO WEEKLY MEAL PLAN WITH CLEAN EATZ KITCHEN

    We love hearing our customer’s amazing stories. Over the years, so many of you have told us how you’ve rolled the Clean Eatz Meal Plan into your weekly routines. We’re so proud to be by your sides – providing nutrition and lifestyle support on your individual journeys. If you’re new to CE, welcome! Check out these Top 10 Reasons why others have allowed us to be a part of their lives and keep pushing toward your goals!

      1. PORTION CONTROL
        How many times have you finished your breakfast, lunch, or dinner and felt like you just left the Thanksgiving table? Overeating is so easy to do by mistake. That #STUFFED feeling is not good for digestion or daily health. CE Meal Plan selections are carefully weighted and have the proper balance of carbs, fats, and protein. Each thoughtfully crafted meal is then packaged in a portion control container so you don’t have to think about serving sizes.
      2. EATING HEALTHY & DELICIOUS
        When most of us talk about eating healthy, our minds typically think of bland and boring food. Chicken and broccoli…Eggs, with a slice of toast. The CE Meal Plan system is designed to switch up tastes so you feel physically good and kill those cravings! Every week, we put out a new selection of chef-inspired dishes, each designed with the perfect blend of carbs, fats and protein to meet your lifestyle. Whether you want to lose weight, maintain or gain muscle, there are meals to meet your fitness goals and satisfy your hunger.
      3. SAVE TIME
        Let’s face it, everyone is BUSY! Time is such a valuable commodity, and we’re all constantly trying to figure out how to gain time in our days. That’s why we’ve developed the CE Meal Plan system around the idea of convenience. All meals come fully prepared and can be heated in a matter of minutes, allowing you to use your time doing the things you love.
      4. SAVE MONEY
        Eating healthy and delicious doesn’t have to be expensive. In fact, you can actually save money. The CE Meal Plan helps individuals and families ditch costly grocery store runs by offering essential dishes for breakfast, lunch and dinner. There’s no purchasing of unneeded ingredients or impulse buys – just the delicious nutrition you need. Better yet, the more CE Meals you buy, the lower the cost per selection.
      5. COMMUNITY SUPPORT
        At Clean Eatz, we consider all Meal Plan customers a part of our family! We try to show this every chance we get. Whether it’s when you pick up your weekly meal plans at your local CE café or simply swing by for a quick bite, we love hearing the stories about how Clean Eatz has changed your life.
      6. ESTABLISH A ROUTINE
        A well-balanced routine is one of the keys to minimizing stress. Our Clean Eatz Meal Plan is designed to help you save time and get ahead of schedule. We create our meals around your lifestyle demands – rushed mornings, desk lunches, family dinners on the fly… we’re thinking of dishes to satisfy you on the go. We even offer snacks to include in your routine through our Café Marketplace.
      7. HELP SOMEONE OUT
        Many have turned to the Clean Eatz Meal Plan to pay it forward. In some cases, it’s used to help make a family member or friend’s busy day a little easier. In other instances, people rely on it to help meet the dietary needs or health goals of someone they care about. With customized offerings geared toward those with diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and food allergies, the CE Meal Plan accommodates many different lifestyles.
      8. CONSTANT VARIETY
        A lot of people pick Clean Eatz as their meal plan provider for the sheer variety. Every week, we cook up six new meals. This includes five new entrees and one new breakfast. We do this because we understand how easy it is to become bored with a fad diet. We’re a lifestyle, so we live up to it by always keeping our fans guessing about what’s coming next!
      9. NOT A ONE-SIZE FITS ALL
        At Clean Eatz, we understand everyone has different goals and needs. 
      10. TASTE We always save the best for last! By far, taste is one of the most popular reasons people choose the Clean Eatz Meal Plan. We LOVE the reviews we receive every day, many surprised by how delicious and filling our healthy creations are. We’re always thinking up new recipes so you can continue to enjoy mealtime and feel great. Keep letting us know about your CE experiences, and we’ll keep bringing the flavor!

    Recycling and Sustainability

    Did you know the world is using less cardboard today than we did 20 years ago? It seems unbelievable with the number of Amazon boxes that we have delivered to the house every day. But it's true because the industry has become much more efficient at packing and shipping. 

    At Clean Eatz, we are on a constant initiative to reduce our footprint when shipping our meal plans. We receive a lot of feedback from our customers on the sustainability of our products when they receive a shipment. While it may seem like there is a lot of packaging materials used to get your meals to you, here is how we view our impact on the environment and how you can help:

    Clean Eatz strives to take any economically feasible steps to minimize the impact of our business. With your help, we can help reduce our footprint to only the fossil fuels needed to transport the product. In fact, a majority of our products are actually produced in North Carolina (where we are), which reduces our carbon emissions footprint with the benefit of helping local industry. 

     

    CARDBOARD BOXES

    Our cardboard boxes are made including recycled cardboard. Our boxes are made 15 miles from our facility making our impact local and minimal.

    You can help - recycle the cardboard

     


    INSULATED LINERS

    Our liners are made from recycled blue jean scraps wrapped in a moisture-proof plastic coating. Our liners are made 200 miles from our facility.

    You can help - cut open the liners. The blue insulation can go to any cotton recycling bin (t-shirt bin) and the plastic coating can be recycled with plastic bags

     


     

    DRY ICE

      Our dry ice is reclaimed carbon dioxide from a byproduct of industry. This allows us to "recycle" carbon dioxide and use it twice rather than emitting it into the atmosphere. Our dry ice is made 150 miles from our facility.

       


       

      MEAL PLAN CONTAINERS

        Our containers are made including recycled plastic.
        You can help - recycle or reuse the containers

        MEAL PLAN SLEEVES

        Our sleeves are made including recycled paper. Our sleeves are made 25 miles from our facility. 

        You can help - recycle the sleeves with paper


          As you can see, all of our shipping products contain at least some parts recycled materials, allowing us to reduce our impact in an otherwise wasteful industry. Please, be thoughtful in how you use and dispose of our products to help minimize our collective impact on our earth. 

           

          Fish Meal Plans have Arrived!

          You spoke and we listened. We've been receiving a lot of request for an alternative white meat meal plan that doesn't contain poultry. We've been working for months with the FDA to produce and sell meal plans that contain fish, and now they're ready!

          We're looking forward to providing shrimp, mahi, scallops, cod, and more through our new fish meal plans. 

          The fish meal plans are going to be a great alternative to our poultry items and will provide another lite, low-fat alternative to red meat. 

          Clean Eatz Product Certified by the American Heart Association

          Clean Eatz recently received certification from the American Heart Association for Clean Eatz chicken, a featured ingredient in many of the restaurant franchise and meal plan business’s dishes. Clean Eatz sees the certification as more fuel in its drive to provide balanced, nutritious food options for individuals and families.

          “Our customers come from all walks of life, but one thing unites them – they want to be healthy and happy,” said Clean Eatz founder and co-owner Evonne Varady. “So many people view our meals as part of their personal wellness plan. This includes patients who have experienced, or want to avoid, a cardiac event.”

          Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S., and stroke ranks fifth. Improving diet quality can be a key factor in reducing chronic conditions, particularly heart disease. To receive the certification, Clean Eatz chicken met Heart-Check nutrition requirements that limit saturated fat, trans fat, sodium and added sugars.

          According to a 2014 study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, people who eat foods that meet the American Heart Association’s Heart-Check Food Certification Program nutrition requirements are more likely to have lower body mass index (BMI), waist circumference, diastolic blood pressure, and in men, total LDL-cholesterol concentrations – all risk factors for heart disease.

          Varady said Clean Eatz continuously works on ways to meet people’s specific dietary needs and goals.

          “We’re very proud of this American Heart Association certification,” she said. “We really strive to educate our customers on what they’re eating and how it affects the way they feel. This certification on our chicken will make it easier for many of them to make a more sensible choice for their lifestyle.”

           
          Heart-Check certification applies to Clean Eatz chicken and not to meals or recipes, unless expressly stated.
