What makes Provenance Meals different?

WE  CHOICES AND HAVING OPTIONS

In our meal plans, YOU choose which meals you'd like from our weekly menu. It changes every week and features the best seasonal, nutrient-dense ingredients.

DESIGNED FOR PLANT LOVERS & OMNIVORES

In the Provenance Meals world, we can all get along and eat good food together. There is no one perfect diet for everyone and not to mention all the different preferences, appetites, and tastes. 

GOOD FOR YOUR BODY AND THE PLANET

We use nutrient-dense and local ingredients to nourish your body while doing no harm to the earth. We use compostable and recyclable containers, compost all our food waste, donate extra meals, and deliver in reusable totes.


Eat Real Food, Traditionally Prepared

Our nutritional philosophy is simple and straightforward. We believe that when you eat real food prepared using traditional cooking techniques, good things start to happen to your health.

With never-ending choices, shelves of processed foods, and always changing diet trends, it's difficult to eat real food and find time to cook.

Our mission is to help busy New Yorkers eat real food, made-from scratch that will make them feel better and look healthier.

Whether you want to reset your body with a detox, following a grain-free diet, or just practicing clean eating, our meal plans and cleanse programs are easy to follow with guidance from our Certified Health Counselors. 

FOOD YOU CAN TRUST. 

As proud ingredient snobs, we are confident that every ingredient we use to prepare your meals and detoxes are sustainable and nutrient-dense.

  • Our meals are prepared in Brooklyn, NY with only whole foods and ingredients in their natural, unprocessed state sourced from organic purveyors and local farmers as much as humanly possible. All of our meat and poultry are grass fed and pasture-raised.
  • There is no refined sugars in our meals and detox programs. We use only natural sweeteners, such as raw honey, blackstrap molasses, coconut sugar and real maple syrup from New York state.
  • Healthy fats such as coconut, nuts, seeds and avocado are good for your body. We use extra virgin olive oil and organic virgin coconut oil, making sure to steer clear of industrial seed oils, like sunflower and canola, which have extremely high proportions of omega 6 fats in relation to omega 3s.
  • To promote optimum digestive health, all of our offerings are 100% gluten-free.
  • There is absolutely no carageenan in our house-made nut milks and no xanthan gum in our gluten-free baked goods.
  • We also use no GMO's. The jury is still out on genetically modified food and we don't want to be the guinea pigs.

MADE-FROM SCRATCH.

Before there was grocery stores and factory farms, our ancestors prepared foods by soaking, sprouting, and fermenting them. These traditional ways of cooking were important to enhancing the digestibility of foods, as well as preserving the foods to last longer and making the nutrients within them more bio-available.

  • We ferment and culture foods to provide important probiotics to the gut. Our house-made kimchi and pickles are rich in beneficial bacteria. And even our hot sauce is fermented!
  • Our house-made, long-simmered bone broths are mineral rich, provide fantastic flavor and important gelatin.
  • We soak and sprout our grains, beans and nuts to reduce phytates and anti-nutrients which help improve digestibility.

Eating real food is healing to the gut and good for the body. Your body knows how to digest and extract nutrients from whole foods, while too much processed ingredients tends to throw it for a loop. Stick with the real stuff, prepared in traditional ways, and be amazed at how easy and satisfying it is to achieve good health!
