The Real StoryLong before the picket signs and clanging pots, our founder Dan, was a busy single dad just trying to feed his kids anything but takeout pizza and frozen microwave meals. But like so many of us, his busy schedule was getting in the way of his family’s nutrition. Then one day Dan discovered an awesome restaurant industry secret that would make it quick and easy for his family to enjoy fresh healthy meals.
Excited by his discovery, Dan did what any sane person would do — he started a food company of course — and RealEats was born! Now it’s our mission to make it easy for anybody to get and enjoy real food — meals cooked by chefs using whole, natural ingredients that aren’t processed and don’t have any added junk or other stuff you wouldn’t want to eat.
A Big Word About the Little GuyWe think it’s important to get behind independent farms (aka the little guy)
because that’s where the real food is. So, we built our kitchen right in the
heart of the Finger Lakes region of NY. It’s here where we take pride
in supporting the agricultural community and creating local jobs.
Queen Of Our Taste BudsEvery kitchen needs a culinary wizard-genius and ours is Aliya LeeKong. Not only is she famous (she’s on TV a lot), she’s also whipped up some mind-blowing menus at Michelin-star restaurants, written cookbooks and visited home kitchens around the world to discover local flavors. Aliya always reminds us that “good food is all about flavors, and healthy doesn’t mean bland”. We know she’s right because we get to try her food a lot. Aliya brings a whole new approach to the comforting taste of healthy home cooking and that makes her the Queen of Our Taste Buds, and yours’ too.
What The People Say
I absolutely love it! The meals are always delicious, fresh, and made with minimal ingredients overall.
Flavorful Fish Curry and the spinach had great texture. Delicious! Convenient prepared meals for those on the go! Compliments to the Chef.
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.
