Delivery FAQS

How is the food delivered?

Our meals are delivered chilled, via refrigerated transport.

Your meals will be packed into an insulated cardboard box with a cooling gel pack. This is then delivered via refrigerated transport to your door.

You'll receive a text upon delivery. Our drivers will endeavour to leave your order in a safe location out of direct sunlight where possible - please ensure to bring your order inside and put your meals in the fridge once delivered.

How much is shipping?

Delivery is free for all orders over $115. For orders under $115, a flat delivery rate of $15 applies.

Does your food come frozen?

Nope - our food arrives to you freshly prepared by the kitchen. Your delivery will be sent to your door in a refrigerated truck, so it doesn’t need to be frozen – it’ll be ready for you to heat up as soon as you’re ready.

If you don’t plan on eating your meals by the use-by date, you can absolutely freeze them. When you're ready to eat, we advise reheating the meal from frozen instead of defrosting or thawing your meal out first. It'll take about 5-6 minutes in the microwave.

Missing delivery?

If there are missing items from your delivery, you must contact us on (03) 8669 0587 9am to 5pm (AEST/AEDT) within 24 hours of the delivery time and we will take steps to verify and confirm any such missing items. Please see our T&C's for further information.

Eating to Fuel Fitness and Training

Training for a triathlon,  ½ marathon or long bike event? Confused about what to eat? Or maybe you want to maximise your performance with the right timing for your nutrition? We've got you covered with some sports nutrition basics so you can train hard, recover well, and perform like a pro when you need to.

Should I Start Eating Like an Athlete?

Even though the science of nutrient timing and specialised supplements is highly honed for elite athletes, it’s a different story for everyday exercisers or general training. To optimise performance and recovery, and get a weight-loss boost, it pays to time your nutritious meals and snacks around your sessions, not automatically add more food or specialised sports supplements in.

How to Fuel up

Basically, you want some nutritious carbohydrates on board before most sessions to make sure you have adequate blood glucose and glycogen stores to help you get through your workout. As a rule of thumb, if you rise and shine early for activity, you don’t need to eat before you head out. Eating your regular oats or poached egg on wholegrain toast before your session isn’t a wise move because it might lead to stitches and digestion problems. However, if you find your energy levels regularly flagging at your 6am road cycle, try ½ -1 piece of fruit as you’re pulling on the lycra. For activity later in the day, try having your regular lunch or a substantial snack about two hours before exercising. In many cases, an appropriate-sized meal like the Dineamic salmon risotto with 57.5g carb and 18.4 g protein or snack eaten before training means you can work out harder and will most likely see better results.

Remember Your Post-Workout

Professional athletes may go straight to the ice bath and sip a protein shake while their dietitian prepares a perfectly balanced recovery meal. But the rest of us just need to grab a nutritious snack or meal within 30 minutes of finishing exercise. It should include nutritious carbohydrates like fresh fruit, wholegrains, legumes or reduce fat dairy foods to replenish glycogen stores and energy levels, plus high-quality protein like a boiled egg, dairy foods, or lean red meat, fish or chicken. High-quality protein will help to repair muscles and minimise stiffness. That means you won’t be too sore to get up and go again tomorrow!

Practice Makes Perfect

Yep, even with food. As your training schedule continues and the big event gets closer, aim to practice your food and drink strategy as part of your training. How many water bottles will you need? Will there be drinks stations? When will you stop? Are you packing portable foods like bananas? Can you eat while riding? Or running? Are you using sports gels or supplements? Trialling your food and fluids will help identify any issues like digestion problems and make everything smooth sailing on the day.
