The RealEats Story

Dinner, Solved!

Let’s be honest. Putting a healthy home-cooked meal on the table seven days a week is almost impossible. It was no different for our founder, Dan, a busy single dad trying to feed his kids anything but takeout pizza and frozen meals.

One day he discovered a little secret used in top restaurants that would change his family’s life. So he did what any sane person would do and started a food company, of course! Now RealEats makes it simple for time-starved families, on-the-go couples, and busy singles to enjoy fresh, delicious, healthy meals in minutes.

Good-for-You Just Got Easy

Ordering takeout or restaurant delivery makes a great treat, but we all know its not so good for you. Meal kits help you skip the grocery store lines, but there’s still the time needed for prepping and cooking, not to mention all those dishes. With RealEats healthy meal delivery service, you no longer have to compromise nutrition for convenience or flavor.

We do all the meal prep for you. Plus, you can even personalize your meal plan with different dietary options. Choose from high protein, low-calorie, gluten-friendly, dairy-free or plant-based selections. There’s something available for every lifestyle and each of our meals is dietician approved.

Having It All

Our resident Michelin-star celebrity chef, Aliya LeeKong, crafts insanely delicious recipes and hand-picks only the freshest, most nutritious, never-processed ingredients. Then our amazing culinary team transforms them into mouthwatering fully prepared meals that we vacuum-pack and deliver to your home where they stay naturally fresh in the fridge for an entire week.

All you'll need to do is reach into your fridge, place the meal pouches into a pot of boiling water or simply open the packs, plate and microwave. Either way you get healthy deliciousness in six minutes or less!

Our rotating menu offers customer favorites and weekly features that change based on the availability of fresh ingredients. We even have a selection of amazing breakfasts, healthy snacks, and beverages! So now, every food choice can easily be a real food choice.

A Better Food Future

There’s one more thing you should know about RealEats. You make an important impact every time you order from us.

We built our kitchen in the heart of the Finger Lakes agricultural region of New York to allow for easy access to responsibly-sourced ingredients from hard-working growers and producers.

It’s here where your RealEats purchases create much-needed jobs and support local farms and businesses. Mostly, this is where the real food is, which makes it a great place to begin building a better food future from.

Customer Reviews

  • 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.

    Siobhan O, Brooklyn, NY

  • I absolutely love it! The meals are always delicious, fresh, and made with minimal ingredients overall.

    Cam P. - New York, NY

  • Flavorful Fish Curry and the spinach had great texture. Delicious! Convenient prepared meals for those on the go! Compliments to the Chef.

    Lineata C. - Chicago, IL

  • 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!

    Tene R. - Brooklyn, NY

  • Just wanted to give a heads up, love the service, it really helps me stay healthy.

    Brian C. - Marlton, NJ

  • 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.

    Tammo M, Tarrytown, NY

  • We are loving your food. The shrimp last week was unreal!

    David D. Rye, NY

  • 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!

    Elizabeth D. Working Mom

  • I teach, and my wife has Alzheimer’s and can’t cook. This is the answer to my prayers.

    Stanley M Geneva, NY

  • 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?

    Bill L., New York, NY

  • 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!

    Tracy Y. Garden City South, NY

  • 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.

    Jack M. Queensbury, NY

  • My husband and I love RealEats and we are so happy we came across it!

    Daniel W. Natick, MA

  • 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!!

    Jaquel S. East Moline, IL

  • 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!
