Keeping Your Prepped Meals Fresh - A short guide from Cheat Eatz Meal Prep

At Cheat Eatz, we understand that having access to delicious and safe meals is important to you. That's why we follow strict FDA regulations to ensure that your prepared meals stay fresh and safe to consume.

Here are a few tips on how to keep your meals fresh:

  1. Store your meals in the refrigerator: The ideal temperature for your refrigerator is 40°F or below to prevent the growth of harmful bacteria. This will help ensure that your meals stay fresh and safe to eat.

  2. Eat within 3-5 days: Most prepared meals have a shelf life of 3-5 days when stored properly in the refrigerator. Be sure to check the cook date on your meals to ensure they are still safe to eat.

  3. Reheat properly: When reheating your meals, be sure to heat them to an internal temperature of 165°F to kill any bacteria that may have developed. This will help ensure that your meals are safe and enjoyable to eat.

  4. Avoid cross-contamination: Store your prepared meals in the airtight container that we provide to you and keep them separate from raw meats, poultry, and seafood to prevent cross-contamination. This will help ensure that your meals are not contaminated with harmful bacteria.

  5. Freeze for later: If you plan to eat your prepared meals at a later time, you can freeze them for up to 2-3 months. When you are ready to eat, be sure to thaw your meals in the refrigerator and reheat to 165°F before consuming. We recommend to freeze the meals as soon as you know you will not consume them within the recommended time frame.

By following these simple tips, you can be sure that your prepared meals from Cheat Eatz stay fresh and safe to consume. If you have any questions or concerns, please don't hesitate to reach out to us. We are always here to help ensure that your prepared meals are safe and enjoyable.
