Feed My Soul!
My first RealEats meal was amazing - herbed shrimp and parsnip cakes!!! The instructions were fool proof and the food itself was delicious - seasoned perfectly and so fresh! Many thanks to the RealEats team and Chef Aliya for de-complicating my life while expanding my palate and feeding my soul!
Just wanted to give a heads up, love the service, it really helps me stay healthy.
We've been enjoying your food for more than 3 weeks now and it has been a real game changer for us in terms of being able to have dinner as a family.
We are loving your food. The shrimp last week was unreal!
We loved every meal, though I think the turkey was my favorite! I already sent my sister, who has a 1 and 4 year old, the info because I think it's perfect for her after a long day!
OMG, this is fantastic.
I teach, and my wife has Alzheimer’s and can’t cook. This is the answer to my prayers.
Living in NYC RealEats has been a 'God send' in terms of meals with my wife. Easy breezy, great tasting, filling, is actually cheaper then ordering out. We love it and guess what? It's healthy and we are actually losing weight also. Who knew?
Love The Quality.
I'm a mother of 2 young boys (a 3 month old and a 3 year old!) and this meal option has really been great for my husband and I. I really love the quality and that it's healthy. Thank you - so far!
I Tell Everyone I Know.
I've tried several different ready-made meal services in the last year, and so far RealEats has far surpassed the others in terms of balancing food quality, sustainability, price and nutrition. Plus I like that since I'm also in NY, it's not being shipped from across the country and you're supporting farms in my neck of the woods.
My husband and I love RealEats and we are so happy we came across it!
Best Salmon Ever.
I just got my meals today! First thing I tried was the salmon and white beans. Let me tell you, I cannot stand salmon because of the strong taste but this was the BEST salmon I've EVER had!! I'm so glad I found your site. I can't wait to try the rest of the meals!!
Fresh, Fast & Healthy.
We just got our first order. We loved almost everything. But the absolute best part was how quickly we were able to eat, get the babies ready for bed and be on our couch for an hour before the grind starts again. The food is fresh and so healthy. We were throwing away so much each week. So wasteful. I can't wait for week 2. This was a game changer for our family!
Ate my first meal tonight. I had the orecchiette pasta with broccoli rabe, prosciutto and farm eggs. So easy to make and this is something I would never be able to cook myself. It was delicious and a generous portion, so I will bring the rest of it to work for lunch tomorrow.
