WE'VE ALWAYS LOVED FLAVORFUL FOOD RUBBED IN FRESH SPICES AND DOUSED WITH THE HEALTHIEST OILS SITTING ON A BED OF FRESH VEGETABLES, BUT WE COULDN’T IT SO WE MADE IT FOR US AND YOU.
In a small rental kitchen in the Bronx, we began to upgrade the meals we loved by swapping dairy for alternative fats, gluten for less-inflammatory starches, and refined sugar for more energy-sustaining sweeteners. With 5 gyms signed up for our launch, Be Exceptional Meals was born.
We’re always looking for great partners. Here are the best ways to get in touch with us, depending on your request: Interested in becoming a pickup location? Contact a representative. Looking to promote us or become an ambassador of the brand? Our marketing team can help with that. For anything else, our customer care team will be more than happy to help you as soon as possible.
What is Be Exceptional Meals?
We are a goal based meal delivery and subscription service based in New York City passionate about nutrition and high quality flavorful food. Our team consists of a prominent Executive Chef, Certified Fitness Professional and Nutritionist who are dedicated to preparing great tasting meals that consist of the highest quality ingredients to help you achieve your goals. Each meal is portion, macronutrient and calorie controlled delivering you delicious meals that meet or supports your health plan.
How does Be Exceptional Meals work?
You can order our meals off our menu as you like, or as a set goal-focused meal plan that will recur on a weekly basis. All of our meals are prepared fresh and delivered to either one of our partnering gym pick-up locations or directly to your home or office. We deliver twice a week, and only require that you order 5 days in advance to ensure the freshest quality ingredients and meals.
How do I order?
All of our meals and meal plans must be ordered online through our website. To start an order, either choose whether you’d like to order a la carte off our menu or with a meal plan. If ordering a meal plan, you will choose the plan that fits your needs and then enter your personal demographic information and number of meals per week you’d like to receive. If ordering a la carte off our menu, simply choose the meals you’d like and add them to your cart. To switch between our beginning of week and midweek menu items, choose the delivery date to the top right of the menu. Your menu items will then reflect the appropriate delivery date in your cart per item upon checkout.
Is there a commitment?
There is no long-term commitment to our program when you place an order. For an a la carte order, you are placing a one-time order that will not recur. For a meal plan, you are only committed to your first week of meals. If you need to pause or cancel your first week, you can do so online before Wednesday night at midnight EST the week prior to your delivery. We will then apply a credit automatically to your account for your next order. After your first week of your meal plan, you can pause or cancel your meal plan at anytime, as long as it is done before Wednesday night at midnight EST the week before your delivery you wish you pause and/or cancel. Your current week of meals will not be affected by a pause or cancellation placed, only pauses or cancellations done prior to the Wednesday at midnight deadline EST will take into account for the upcoming week’s delivery.
When do you deliver?
We have two deliveries per week, early and midweek. Depending on your delivery location and type, your order will come either on Monday or Tuesday for early week delivery and then Thursday or Friday for midweek and weekend delivery. You will choose your delivery time/options in the checkout process based on your location and delivery type.
Until what point can I make changes or cancel my order?
In order to source the freshest ingredients for your made-to-order meals, we ask that you order 5 days in advance of your delivery. Because we only deliver twice a week, we therefore have two deadlines on our website to order – Wednesday and Saturday by midnight EST for beginning of week and midweek delivery respectively. All meal plans, however, must be ordered or adjusted before Wednesday at midnight EST for the upcoming week. Billing for meal plans goes through on Thursday morning.
Where do you source your food?
We make sure to source the highest-quality and freshest ingredients possible for our meals, and as locally sourced to our facilities as possible. All of our beef is 100% grass-fed, our poultry and pork hormone and antibiotic free and our fish & seafood wild caught.
Do I need to be home to receive my meals?
You do not need to be home to receive your home delivery, you can leave notes in your delivery notes on where to leave your food if you are not there. However, if we deliver within the allocated delivery window, and you are okay with us leaving your bag, we are not responsible for your bag after it is left. If you are having your bag delivered to your gym, it will be left safely in your gyms’ Be Exceptional Meals fridge.
What’s the delivery fee?
Our pricing varies based on your area of delivery. For gym delivery the delivery fee is waived, however we do charge a minimal delivery fee for our home delivery as we work with great partners to assure safe delivery to your home. The price of shipping will show for your specific delivery location upon checkout. If shipping further than the New York Tri-State area, we strongly recommend overnight delivery, though 2 day service is also available.
What is the refund policy?
Refunds will not be issued once preparation for a delivery has already begun. If you need to change the delivery of an order, we require 72-hours advanced notice of your delivery, and at which time your delivery will be paused and credited (not refunded) back to your account. You can then re-order at anytime on your own – our credits do not expire and can be used at anytime in the future.
How long do the meals stay fresh?
Our meals stay fresh for between three to five days, depending on the meal. We deliver twice a week to make sure that you have access to fresh meals. All of our meals come with an eat-by date of 3 to 5 days. We suggest freezing our meals if you would like to make them last longer. If you freeze them, you can simply defrost them and cook them in an oven or microwave before consumption.
How do you handle allergies and dietary restrictions?
Each menu item comes with a full ingredient list on our website. In addition, if you have a meal plan, you can pick from our list of restrictions, in which case you will never receive a meal that has that restricted item in it. We, however, do not make our meals especially for allergies, therefore, if your allergy is serious, please proceed with caution and feel free to consult our customer service team first with any questions. Our kitchen is already gluten, dairy, soy, and peanut free.
