How many servings are in each recipe?

Every recipe serves 4-6 people. If you choose to split your bags, you will receive 2-3 servings per bag. 

How long do the meals need to cook?

Each menu has different types of recipes. Some will be in a crockpot, some will be on the stove top or in the oven. Only the Easy Eats menu is organized by cooking time; each meal in the menu is 30 minutes or less. 

How long do the meals last in the freezer?

Most meals will last at least three months in a standard refrigerator/freezer combo.

Do I need to thaw my frozen meals before cooking? If so, how do I do it?

The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service recommends thawing frozen meat before placing it in a crockpot. 

Do I have to freeze the meals before cooking?

No. You can cook them fresh instead. 

Is it safe to freeze raw meat and vegetables in the same bag?

Yes. The USDA Food Safety and Inspection Service explains that the freezer inactivates any microbes present in food (like bacteria, yeasts, and molds). You will cook the food before eating it too, so it’s perfectly safe.
