Our MEEL subscription service provides Nashville homes with a menu, recipes, and all of the necessary ingredients to cook two weekly dinners. Our meal kits are carefully curated, internationally inspired, and meticulously sourced using local, organic ingredients, all hand delivered from the farm to your front door. Our hand delivered bundles provide a personal connection to each meal and the community where the food is grown. MEEL kits allow subscribers to support local farmers and food artisans, even when life gets too busy for a trip to the farmer's market.
We provide subscribers with an omnivore's diet of locally grown, organic vegetables, locally pastured (and grass-fed) meats & sustainable seafood, carefully curated with all the right supplemental ingredients for inspiring meals. At MEEL, we believe that good nutrition is the foundation of wellness and strive to cultivate this for ourselves, our families, and others. Our philosophy is simple: connect to the rhythm of the year through seasonal eating, with organic, non-GMO ingredients, and limited dairy and gluten (gluten free option is available). Our recipes are curated from some of our favorite food blogs, cookbooks, and magazines, presenting you with inspiring recipes you will return to again and again. Each recipe card provides simple but creative preparations of whole foods that allow you to cook dinner in 45 minutes or less, and eat real food! Real food that comes from people and families we know and see at the farmer's market each week.
The name MEEL is derived from my twins names, EMMA and ELLIOT. When it comes to food, they have been my muse for healthy habits. I have always referred to them as "EM" and "EL" for short... a little rearranging of the letters and you have MEEL. Interestingly, MEEL is also a Dutch term for flour or farinaceous.
That’s what MEEL is: a sustainable way to foster our health, one nutritious meal together at a time.
