Frequently Asked Questions
What is Healthy Course?
Our mission at Healthy Course is to help you eat healthier while saving you time and money. We design eating plans that not only taste good but are the right portion size to help you achieve your fitness goals, all while staying within your budget. Think about what you spend on lunch or dinner every day. We’ll bet it’s more than $7 per meal. That’s the cost of one full meal (protein, veggie and carb) in our 5 for $35 meal deal. We understand planning and prepping meals isn’t easy. We get that you’re busy and don’t have the time or energy to think about what to eat. And we also understand that you want to eat healthy, but maybe you’re just not sure how to do it. So let us make it easy for you. When you order Healthy Course meals you can feel confident knowing you’re eating lean proteins, fresh vegetables and carbohydrates. We don’t sneak in added preservatives, sugars or unhealthy sauces. It’s truly clean eating—and it’s delicious!

Tell me more about the meals. Do you use sodium? What about preservatives?
Our food is lightly seasoned with house-made spices. We don’t add any preservatives. Healthy Course meals are cooked fresh with natural ingredients.
Where can I find the nutritional/calorie content for the meals?
All of the nutritional content for our food is listed next to each food item. And we’ve made it super easy for you—as your build your meals, we’ll add up the nutritional content such as calories and grams, taking the guess work out of it.
Are your meals gluten free?
Many of our meals are gluten friendly. Look for the “GF” icon next to the food names.
What if I have a food allergy?
We can accommodate you! Just tell us during the ordering process about your food allergies and we will make the necessary changes. You can also call us at (504) 309-5505 if you discuss it further or have any questions.
How do I heat my meals?
We’ve made it so simple for you. The containers your food come in are freezable and microwaveable. So when you’re ready, break the lid seal, microwave and eat. Microwaves vary, but we suggest heating the meals for 1 minute, stirring them and then heating again until your food is a hot as you like it!
How soon can I get my food?
A better question is: how soon do you want it? If you order today you can get your food as early as two days after your order date based on the pickup location or delivery options. However, we’ve found that most of our customers like to start their work week off eating healthy—so we suggest you place your order online by Friday morning to get your meals on Sunday. When you place your online order, you will be asked which day and time you want to pick up your meals or have them delivered.
How many days will the meals last?
Our strong containers lock in your food’s freshness longer. Because we do not add any preservatives and the meals are made fresh, we suggest freezing them if they aren’t eaten within 4–5 days. Simply take out a meal the night before you plan to eat it and thaw it in the fridge.
Do you offer guilt-free desserts?
Why yes we do! Check out our healthy dessert options in Ready Made Meals and also follow us on Facebook for delicious dessert updates.
Can I buy food by the pound?
Sure thing. If you’re the type that likes to do your own meal prep, more power to you! For that very reason we sell our meats, veggies and carbs by the pound in a vacuum sealed bag for ultimate freshness.
Do you deliver?
Yes we do! Have you seen our refrigerated truck? We think it’s pretty cool (pun intended!). We are offer delivery in the Greater New Orleans area for $10 a delivery on Sundays and Mondays within the following time slots: Morning 8am-1pm and Evening 5pm-9pm.
