Meals can be accommodated for allergies and special diets, so you can feel assured your meals are safe for your dietary needs.

The convenience of freezer meals means you’re in control of when you eat. You can cook at your own pace. Citrus Pear meals are planned by registered dietitians who keep nutrition and flavor in mind—giving you the best of both worlds. Meals can be accommodated for allergies and special diets, so you can feel assured your meals are safe for your dietary needs.

Prepare meals at home.

The classes or pre-assembled meals get rid of that barrier so we can focus on other things that are important, but still live that healthy lifestyle.
