How do I heat my meals?

Category: Diet-to-Go Meals

Your Diet-to-Go meals are fully cooked and can be enjoyed hot or cold. Make sure your meals are defrosted before reheating. Reheat these meals until hot and enjoy; use your best judgement when it comes to reheating your food, as times may vary from meal to meal. Breakfast meals require shorter reheating times than Lunches or Dinners.

There may be some liquid released from the food once defrosted. This can be drained off before heating.

You do not need to heat side dishes like slaw, fruit cups, peanut butter, or sandwiches.
 

To Heat Your Meals in the Microwave

Microwaves are not created equal, so test your meals after the initial heating time and adjust your time from there. Keeping them semi-covered helps keep moisture in and heats them faster.

  • Remove the plastic top, remove anything that does not need re-heating and microwave on high for 1 – 2 minutes.
  • Use your best judgment with the reheating times; Breakfast meals like pancakes should only need 30 seconds or so. Egg dishes, about 1- 2 minutes. Thick meat meals, like meatballs or stuffed chicken, should be cut in half, placed cut-side down and heated for about 2 minutes to start.
  • Test the temperature; if it’s not hot enough, put the meal back in for another minute or two. You can also place the meals on a plate and reheat covered as well.
  • Many microwaves have a "reheat plate" setting. We have been told that this setting is ideal for heating Diet-to-Meals evenly without over-doing it.
  • To warm rolls, wrap them in a moist paper towel and heat for 10 seconds or so; or reheat them in the oven or toaster oven.


To Heat Your Meals in a Toaster Oven

Simply remove the meals from the packaging and place on the toaster tray, aluminum foil or oven-safe dish and heat until hot. This takes a bit more time but the outcome is delicious! This is the best way to reheat sandwiches, wraps and cheese dishes.
 

To Heat Your Meals in a Traditional Oven

Simply remove the meal from the packaging, place in an oven-safe dish, cover with foil and heat at 300 degrees until hot (approximately 20-30 mins).
 

To Heat Your Meals in a Bamboo Steamer

Simply remove the meal from the packaging, remove anything that does not need to be heated, place on a small plate or foil, place in the steamer, cover and heat until hot.

Reheat breads in the oven or toaster oven, or wrap in a moist paper towel and place in microwave for 10 seconds or until warm.
