Frequently Asked Questions

PRODUCT

Healthy eating should be affordable and simple, and that’s what we offer. Our chef, licensed nutritionist, food safety specialist, and cooks create meals to power your fitness activities and active lifestyle. We don’t just feed you meals, we help you get results. Our calorie-based programs are tailored to meet dietary and lifestyle restrictions. Reach your fitness and health goals with our healthy food delivered to your door.
Not only can eating healthy be tasty, we truly believe it should always be so. This is one of our core beliefs, because we think of taste as much as we do of health - simply because if food isn’t tasty, it’s not enjoyable. We want you to enjoy eating healthy and getting great results! This is why our team is composed of a brand chef, who makes the meals super tasty and delicious, and a licensed nutritionist, who ensures you get the absolute best in nutrition. We offer a variety of recipes, allowing you to eat up to two weeks of non-repetitive meals, as well as different diets, each with its tasty recipes.
We offer menus tailored to different lifestyles, diets, and goals. At ActivEats we want our meals to fit your lifestyle and dietary choices. For example, we don’t just sell Free of Gluten and Dairy meals, or Vegan meals; we design them for either simply eating healthy, getting fit, losing weight fast, or gaining lean muscle and strength. We believe this approach the most inclusive. Our menu categories are Slim, Fit, Balance, and Power. If you need assistance in choosing, we’re here to help! Simply call the number at the top of the screen or drop us an email.
You save time on building balanced recipes; counting your calories and nutritional values of your meals; shopping for the groceries; and cooking the food. This can take up to 20 hours a week, if done right. Now you can take this time to do something awesome!
We are here to fit your lifestyle and your needs. We offer up to two weeks of non-repetitive meals. With ActivEats, you won’t have to ask yourself every day, “What am I going to eat?” Just open your fridge and enjoy! Subscription coming soon.
We buy, prep, and cook everything ourselves at our own newly built 2000 square foot facility in Mississauga, ensuring the highest standards of quality and safety. We use high sunflower oils, and we don’t use any colouring, additives, preservatives or chemicals.
We offer up to two weeks of new meals for all our diet choices, including free of gluten and dairy, and vegan. This way, you can enjoy exciting, new dishes every day, and won’t get tired of seeing the same old stuff day in, day out. We work to refresh our menu every 2-3 months, while substituting certain dishes and bringing in new ones, all thanks to your valued feedback.
We do not offer a-la-carte ordering, but we do offer two completely different week-long menus of food, so you can eat interesting and tasty recipes while being healthy and full of energy. Each weekly meal set can be ordered in either the original option, free of gluten and dairy, or vegan, allowing you to seamlessly move between and try new recipes and diets.
Yes, you can. Just remember, your body's nutritional needs vary throughout the day, so we recommend sticking to our suggested plan for even better results.

NUTRITION

No, we’ve done all the work for you! All you have to do is eat and enjoy! Our licensed nutritionist has meticulously crafted each meal to be perfect for starting a healthy active lifestyle and getting great results.
For our Original and Free of Gluten and Dairy diets, we use chicken, beef, and turkey, as well as different types of fish like Salmon and Cod, ensuring you are getting a wide range of micronutrients, while eating different, tasty proteins every day. For our Vegan options, we cook with a variety of different vegetable proteins. You can expect a lot more than just tofu for our proteins.
We use natural sunflower oil, as it is a healthier option than other heavier oils. Most of our meals are steamed or steam fried. We don’t deep fry anything.
Yes, each of our meals has a balanced sodium level, giving you under 2300 MG of sodium per day, which is the RDA official recommendation. Average Canadians consume over 3000 MG of sodium per day, which is well above the recommended amount. Our meals are guaranteed to provide you with much less sodium for the whole day. Also, we only use natural sea salt, which is healthier and richer in micronutrients.
Yes! One of our important goals here is to prove that a vegan diet can give you loads of energy, strength, and fill your body’s daily needs, so you can achieve your goals. Be it simply eating healthy, slimming down, or building muscle and strength through your workout, our Vegan meals will provide you with everything you need. Vegan doesn’t mean skinny and weak! Even pro athletes are now eating vegan diets for either most of the year or for their entire diet- so why not give it a try?

ORDERING AND DELIVERY

No subscription or log-in required. Simply order your healthy food, no strings attached.
You can order our meal sets from our website www.activeats.ca. You can pay for your order using Credit Card, Visa Debit, or PayPal.
We offer 2 easy delivery methods: either direct delivery to your home or workplace, or to a nearby Penguin Pick-up location. For Direct Deliveries, we deliver your orders every Sunday, from 12 pm till 9 pm. To receive your food on Sunday, all orders must be placed no later than 12 pm EST on the Wednesday prior to that Sunday. All orders received after that time will automatically be transferred to the following Sunday’s delivery. If you choose to go with Penguin Pick-up, your food will be available for you to pick up from your local Penguin Pick-up location, every starting Monday from 5pm-9 pm until the end of the week.
Penguin Pick-Up is a well established company, with over 70 pick-up locations across Canada that offers customers the option to pick up their online orders themselves, saving on delivery costs. Each Penguin Pick-Up location we use has full refrigeration capabilities, ensuring your order is fresh and safe, till you pick it up. If you choose this option, upon checking out you will select a location that is most convenient for you, and your food will be there waiting for you on Monday. You will also receive a barcode in your order confirmation email from Penguin Pick-Up. All you have to do is to stop by your selected location, show the barcode and your ID (for security reasons), and your order will be handed to you by the friendly staff at the location.
Each meal is sealed with a special film, then placed in an insulated box, along with the other meals and with ice packs to guarantee your food stays fresh and tasty even during delivery. The entire packaging process happens in our own facility, under our strict supervision. We have a partnership with a courier service to deliver your food, either to a Penguin Pick-up location near you or door-to-door where you want them.
That’s fine with us, as long as it's all right with you. Our courier will leave the order in front of your door. Internally, we will have confirmation and proof that your order has been dropped off by the courier.
Yes, in your cart page, each meal set you have added to your order has a default delivery date and calendar with the other possible delivery days from which you can choose. Simply choose a delivery day for each package.

STORAGE AND HEATING

Our meals are specially sealed, designed to be kept cold, refrigerated at standard home refrigeration temperature. This allows our meals to stay fresh for just over a week’s time. To ensure the highest standards of safety, each of our meals is stamped with a “Best Before” date, so you can clearly understand how long you can store your meals before they expire. We recommend that you store your meals in a refrigerator and eat them before their expiration date specified on each meal.
You do not need to cook any of our meals; they come fully-cooked, ready to eat and enjoy! Our meals are portioned in special containers that are both safe to use in a conventional oven and a microwave. Simply heat and enjoy!
You don’t need to buy anything extra to enjoy our meal - just a cutlery set. Our containers are high quality, BPA-free, so you can easily eat the meals directly from the containers and avoid doing the dishes. You can also choose to use a plate instead if you wish.
Because our meals come in sealed containers, you can easily take them with you to work or wherever you go. However, for lengthy amounts of time, it’s better that you keep the meals refrigerated so they stay fresh until they reach their expiration date.
It all depends on your taste preferences. If you prefer, you don’t have to heat any of our meals, because they are fully-cooked. Some meals are even suggested to be eaten cold, while others we recommend to be heated for better taste and texture.
Only if you want to keep them beyond the specified expiration date.
