How it Works

Eat Great. Save Time. Feel (& look) Amazing. We combine the power of plants, the science of slow cooking & nutrient bioavailability and the proven health benefits of intermittent fasting to design a formula that easily fits into your daily life. Our advisory board includes a registered dietitian, a specialist on energy homeostasis, and a professional chef who work with us to create recipes that leave you satisfied and energized. Our plans are customizable, and suitable for those on an elimination program, a sugar detox, or paleo diet.

Beyond the body, we provide the mindfulness training and support that help you find your way to increased energy, elevated mood, and less stress. In short, small changes really do add up. Here's how:

All of Our Meals

Our bowls are microwave safe (our bottles are not). All meals can be reheated in a mug or bowl in the microwave, or in a saucepan. We suggest enjoying our bowls hot. Drinkable soups can be enjoyed cold, but when warmed, they’ve been known to perk up a chilly day.

OWN YOUR OWN HABITS

Cleanse 1 Day. Swap 5 Days. Wander 1 Day. Repeat. Your weekly sequence is key to creating lasting change in your eating habits. If your intention is improving your health, then your behavior has to match. Behavior change is hard, but Spooning connects these elements so you can own your own habits.

The Cleanse

Begin your morning with your weekly meditation and a warm cup of water with lemon. Just 1 coffee or tea a day maximum and keep it black, or add a splash of nut or soy milk. Allow 2 hours between each bottle.

This is a sample Cleanse Day Menu (changes weekly):

Breakfast: Butternut Turmeric—Healthy fat and protein keep you powered for longer.

Lunch: Beet Balsamic Bisque—Detox and strengthen with this bright, beautiful soup.

Mid-afternoon: Celery Plant—Celery’s flavors tickle your sinuses; potatoes and thyme add a satisfying kick.

Dinner: Lentil Kale—Stay satisfied with this hearty protein- and fiber-rich bowl.

Nightcap: Fennel Consommé—Cleanses, soothes, and calms at the end of the day.

Avoid alcohol on Cleanse Day and opt for a lighter workout. In the 2 hour breaks, have at least 2 cups of herbal tea or water. If you need more, eat some plant-based protein + carb, like nut butter + apple.

The Swap

Repetition is key to adopting healthy habits that make long-term differences. The Swaps are mini-Cleanse moments in the days that follow the Cleanse day. Start each meal with your meditation! We suggest swapping lunch as it anchors the middle of a day, and is often where we go astray. Commit to swapping the same meal every day to build a habit. Don’t worry about the non-bowl meals on Swap days — it’s the repetition that’s critical.

SCHEDULE CHANGE?

Our meals are good in the fridge for 1 week or frozen for 1 month. They’re made in small batches with fresh, whole vegetables, bottled immediately, and flash-frozen. Flash-freezing locks in vitamins, nutrients, and flavor, keeps them fresher for longer, and gets them to you hassle-free. We never use fillers or preservatives. To thaw: Leave frozen in the refrigerator for 24-48 hours, or soak in cool water for 1 hour and shake vigorously.

ECO-EATs

Eating plant-based meals is the easiest way to shrink your carbon footprint. Our meals are 100% vegan, so are completely plant-based, and animal- and animal byproduct-free. Our bottles and bowls are 100% BPA-free and recyclable. Our packaging boxes and sleeves are recyclable. Love your body, love the planet, and eat with ease of mind.

SATIETY & NUTRITION

Each of our bowls and bottles comprise 2 serving sizes. That’s because each is equivalent to 1 meal or 2 snack portions. When you’re eating, try to focus on how your stomach feels. As you become full, the empty feeling will be replaced with gentle pressure. When you feel the pressure, it likely means you’ve had enough. You should still feel light and energetic with this pressure — if that means half a bowl, the whole thing, or somewhere in between, that’s fine.
