This is totally up to you! Some of our breakfast meals are enjoyed best chilled (Granola & Yoghurt, Chia Pots etc) but overall the decision is yours. Most of our customers love to heat up their lunch and dinner meals.
You can do this a few ways; by microwave, oven or in a frying pan.
Pour the meal into a small frying pan with a drizzle of oil (we like to use coconut), and heat until it’s piping hot. To heat in an oven, transfer the meal to a oven-safe dish and heat until piping hot throughout.
To microwave; heat up the meal for 1 min 30 seconds, give it a good stir, then put it back in the microwave for another 1 min 30 seconds.
Unfortunately, we regret that we are unable to amend our recipes based off individual requirements (although this is something we hope to offer in the near future!). Please do not leave any notes regarding requests / allergy info at the checkout, as this box is automatically pulled into our DPD system and processes delivery notes only.
At The Good Prep, we like to keep things super fresh, as we know that food at it’s freshest is full of nutrients. Plus, it just tastes better! So we split your orders into two separate deliveries:
Delivery 1 arrives on a Sunday and contains meals for Monday through to Wednesday.
Delivery 2 arrives on a Wednesday and contains meals for Thursday and Friday.
If you order a 3-day plan, your order will arrive in one Delivery on the date chosen at checkout (either a Sunday or Wednesday).
When you place your order, you’ll be able to specify different addresses for the two delivery dates, if needed.
Yes, however we require 3 working days notice in order to update this on our systems and ensure all delivery labels are accurate. You may leave any delivery instructions for the driver at checkout in the notes box. We regret that we are not responsible for drivers not following specific instructions, although we’ll always do our best to ensure your parcel is delivered to a safe space if requested.
Deliveries can be made anytime from 9am – 6pm on Sundays and Wednesdays. You will receive a text / email notification on the morning of your delivery from our courier service. This notification will provide you with a 1-hour timeslot for your delivery. This timeslot will depend on the drivers delivery route in your area.
We recommend that you put your meals / snacks in the fridge as soon as possible once received.
As your delivery contains perishable goods, your delivery must be signed for, otherwise it will be left in a safe place on the premises or destroyed by our couriers. If you are not available at the time of delivery, please ensure that either someone is available to receive your box or otherwise the parcel will be left safe on the premises or destroyed by our couriers.
We do not recommend changing your delivery date via the DPD app, as it is important your delivery arrives on the day intended to remain fresh. We cannot be held responsible for issues with parcels if you have requested to change your delivery date manually.
