1. We used low levels of salt in our recipes so that you could add a little salt according to your preference. Some of you may need no more salt, but if you are transitioning to this diet and are used to a higher level of salt, you can sprinkle some on your meal after it has been heated. We encourage you over time to reduce your salt intake, but as you transition to a healthy diet, it is important that the food satisfies your current taste preferences.
  2. Make sure you stir your meal when reheating, thoroughly combining the sauces with the pasta, rice, or couscous. If you use a microwave, heat the meal for five minutes, stir the ingredients together well, then heat for another minute or two. This will spread the flavors into the starch base, and also help to incorporate the excess water in the sauce. A few of the meals may seem a little wet, but remember that this is mostly because we are not adding oil to the sauces. Just make sure you follow the instructions to mix your starch and sauce bases well.
  3. To maximize the quality of the food, we recommend reheating your meals with the Hot Logic induction-warming tray. This induction unit will heat your food to a safe temperature, and hold it there until you choose to eat. It takes 1.5 to 2 hours to thoroughly warm, but all you have to do is place the meal in the tray, plug it in, then walk away.
  4. After you have heated your meal, serve it on a plate, or, if it is a wetter meal, in a bowl. The food will look appetizing, and as much as we think our tastes are not visual, they are indeed partly influenced by visual presentation. Also, you will notice how large the servings are when you use a plate or bowl.
  5. We provide generous portions, so don’t feel like you need to eat the whole meal! If you have some left over, put it in your fridge for a snack later. 6) Take a snack bag with you to work every day with a few pieces of fruit and cut veggies, and keep your water bottle on your desk so you can stay hydrated.
