Top Meal Preparation & Planning related questions

It all depends on your health and fitness goals and your dietary needs and restrictions. Generally, a good meal plan emphasises vegetables, fruits, and whole grains, including lean meats, poultry, fish, beans, eggs, and nuts. It limits saturated and trans fats, sodium, and added sugars and must have controlled portion sizes. But as mentioned, every meal plan is unique. As long as you get your macronutrients through your meals, then your meal plan is good and balanced.

It’s highly recommended for you to be present when your meals are delivered to your location. It’s because most of the meals can be perishable and must be immediately stored inside your refrigerator or freezer. You can do this by coordinating your schedule with your Tasker. Otherwise, make sure to advise someone in your location that your meals will be delivered so they can store them properly right away. 

Most prepared meals last for four days, as long as they’re kept in an airtight container in your refrigerator or freezer. Some meals can even last longer, while some must be eaten in three days. It depends on the kind of meal your Tasker has prepared for you. For good measure, consume the meals according to the set meal plan and schedule to avoid food spoilage. 

Like all plans, some wiggle room and improvisations must be done to make them work. Maybe it’s an unexpected lunch out with friends or a dinner date with your special someone. Whatever the case is, your Tasker can adjust your meal plan for you when needed. They can either bump your menu to the next day or save it for the next week. Remember to inform your Tasker immediately if you need to skip a day on your meal plan!

Absolutely! We understand that you may want to bring some people with you on your health journey. All you have to do is indicate this detail on your task. Specify how many people want to have their meals planned and prepared, and include their respective dietary preferences. Your Tasker can schedule a session with you to further understand each of your needs. 

Your meal preparation & planning service can be paid via cash or through Airtasker Pay if you prefer a cashless transaction. Let your Tasker know which payment method you prefer beforehand. Also, discuss how often you want to pay for their service, whether it’s every day, every week, or every month. Lastly, make sure to ask your Tasker about all the inclusions, such as the delivery fee.

What do meal preparation & planning services include?

Having someone to plan and prepare your meals is an easy way to enjoy balanced, delicious meals while hitting your fitness goals at the same time!

Meal planning

Running out of meal ideas? Let a Tasker plan your meals and save you time and stress! They can personalize meal plans according to your dietary needs, restrictions, allergies, and aversions. You can have ready meals for a day, a week, or a month, but you can always have it adjusted whenever you want. From vegan and gluten-free to weight loss plans, your Tasker can prep your meals and keep you satisfied! For the health-conscious, hiring someone to give nutritional advice can be an added benefit, so you know which diet is the best for you. You can also get a personal trainer to help you lose fat, gain muscles, and reshape your body!

Meal preparation

For those who don’t have the time or energy to cook their own food, you can let your Tasker do it for you! They can prepare ahead meals based on the meal plan both of you have agreed upon. Your Tasker cooks your pre-prepared meals in either their kitchen or your own, and the meals should last depending on your agreed time frame. To make it even easier for you, you can get someone to shop for your groceries, so you can tick off items on your shopping list without having to step out of your house! Feel free to have fresh meat, veggies, and fruits delivered if you want to have your meal made with fresh ingredients.

Meal delivery

If your breakfast and lunch are cooked and prepared in your Tasker’s kitchen, you can have your meals delivered to your door. Your ready prepared meals are sent to you in freezer bags or oven-safe boxes, all set for reheating any time. Make sure to store them properly in your refrigerator or freezer to avoid getting them spoiled! If you need healthy meals delivered right away, a Tasker can also bring you healthy takeaway from your go-to restaurant so you can enjoy freshly-cooked food while sticking to your diet.
