Frequently asked questions
How does it work?
Soon as you become a member you get instant access to our meal plans, automatically generated shopping list, you get our exclusive mobile number to text for help and so much more!
You can use our suggested meal plans that we publish every week (always with new recipes) or customise your own plans and save them to go back to whenever you want.
My own private chef? Seriously?
We spent a long time thinking about this! We asked ourselves what would be one thing that we would really, really, love and that was our own private chef!
Members get a mobile phone number that they can text questions or ask for help in real time. Theo is manning the phone every weekday between the hours of 5-7pm!
What are the meal plans and recipes like?
Our weekly meal plans offer a well balanced week of meals including a meat-free day, fish, meat and flexitarian options. Our recipes are developed and tested by us so we can ensure you are in safe hands. Inspired by cuisines from around the world, all of them are easy to make and we try to keep hands-on time to 20 minutes or less.
Do I have to use the meal plan every day?
No! Some members use our meal plans every day. Others dip in and out; making two or three day meal plans and love having the handy shopping list. Some use us when they need, skip a week – whatever you want.
Are the recipes healthy?
We believe in maintaining a well balanced diet with food being cooked with fresh, clean produce and avoiding processed ingredients.
How much does it cost?
Membership starts from £4.00 per month if you buy an annual membership and it pays for itself (plus extra) before we launched FiveDinners we meal planned for a few months and our shopping bill reduced by almost 50% (for us that was easily a saving of £100 per month).
Am I tied in forever? Is it as harsh as my gym membership? 🙂
No you’re not! If you opt for a monthly membership you can cancel anytime – no commitment or contracts, or save some cash and buy an annual membership.
Are the meal plans just for families?
No way! Whether you’re feeding just yourself, a couple or a family of four or ten, you can change the serving size on every recipe and we’ll automatically change the ingredients and shopping list for you!
By default all our recipes serve four.
I am Vegan, Flexitarian, Vegetarian…
All our recipes are organised by category so you can create your own bespoke meal plan and browse recipes that suit you; GF, dairy free, one-pot, vegetarian, family faves, quick, etc.
We also have a Flexitarian note on every recipe giving tips on how to change it to different diets.
So you choose what I’m eating every week? I mean I like it but..
We took the decision that most people might be like us; they just don’t want the headache of choosing what to cook each week – so we’re doing it for you!
Of course if you don’t fancy one week you can browse previous weeks meal plans or you can browse our recipes and create your own meal plan and we’ll automatically generate your shopping list – simples!
