Introducing Alchemy Meal Prep, a Columbus-based online meal delivery service with healthy and delicious meals delivered right to you. Vegan, gluten free, and carnivore options for all!
Alchemy 3 is born!
For those of you who don't know, I run this blog full time and also co-own wellness-inspired food concepts called Alchemy. The latest evolution of Alchemy Brands is Alchemy Meal Prep, an online meal delivery service in Columbus, Ohio!
My business partner Abed started talking about expanding Alchemy beyond brick and mortars three years ago. He envisioned a prepared meals business where we'd bring never before seen Alchemy meals to people's homes.
Me being me, the weight of the idea and what was needed to bring it to fruition stressed the hell out of me.
But like it always goes, the pieces came together and we started aggressively developing this concept in 2019.
We found an incredible Chef who truly understood our vision for Alchemy's food. We spent months finding the right packaging and developing our people, processes, and recipes.
Bringing this business to life spoke to a new part of my soul. The creative process behind our brick and mortar locations (Café and Kitchen) were exhilarating but there's something about the online space that really thrills me.
With me being such a detail-oriented person and Abed being so visionary and macro-thinking, the minutia of everything from website copy, meal stickers, recipes, nutrition information, and packaging was right up my alley.
We can't believe it's actually here! Let's do a little Q&A, shall we?
What sets Alchemy Meal Prep apart?
We believe eating should bring you joy. Our mission is to make eating well enjoyable and affordable long term. We believe in balance---double chocolate banana bread included! You'll feel happier and healthier fueling yourself with our nutritious, flavor-packed meals.
We're trusted. All of our recipes are carefully developed, cooked, and portioned by our talented Chef and Dietitian (hi!). You'll see some of your Hummusapien favorites (like my lasagna and cherry orange bread) on our menus, too.
We're fresh + local. We source ingredients seasonally and responsibly from our network of trusted purveyors and farmers.
We're flexible. Select from breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snack options. Choose to have your food delivered or grab your box from either Alchemy location.
How does it work?
Our weekly rotating menu goes live every Thursday morning. You have until the following Wednesday to place an order.
We deliver your box of pre-portioned meals the following Sunday afternoon. Meals come in compostable packaging that is microwave, oven, and freezer safe. There is no assembly required; just heat and eat.
We offer fun and healthy breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. While we have a couple Alchemy favorites on the menu, the majority of our offerings are never before seen meals!
How much does it cost?
Meals range in price from about $7.95 to $14.95. The minimum for ordering is $50.
Do you have vegan and gluten-free options?
Yes! Each week there will be at least six options for each dietary preference (carnivore, vegan, gluten free, dairy free, vegetarian) for about 15 total options for omnivores.
We also offer bulk grains, proteins, and vegetables each week. Nutrition available for each meal is located online.
