Frequently Asked Questions

Live texting service! 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 recipes like?

Our recipes are inspired by cuisines from around the world but all of them are easy to make, take less than 20 minutes hands-on time and are meals the whole family will enjoy.

What are the meal plans like?

Our weekly meal plans consist of meat-free Monday, fish Friday and everything in between for a well balanced week of meals.

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 £4.99 per month – 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! You can cancel at anytime – we’re here to make life easier for you.

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…

We follow a Flexitarian approach; including some vegetarian and vegan recipes as standard but also offer advice on altering our recipes to make them vegan/GF/DF/Paleo friendly – just send us a text!

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!
