How does meal replacement work?
“My Chef Lara’s” pricing structure is a service fee plus the cost for groceries.
The cost varies depending on the type of service selected. As an example, to plan, shop for and prepare 10 nutritious dinners for two people (20 meals), the service charge is $370, plus the cost of groceries.
- 5 entrees / 4 portion Meal service = 20 meals
- 4 entrees / 4 portion Meal service = 16 meals
- 3 entrees / 4 portion Meal service = 12 meals
Pricing per meal depends on the number of meals we can prepare during one cooking day.
Our most affordable option is a 5×8 which gives you a total of 40 complete meals for a per meal price of less than $17.20 including all groceries. This is less than what you would pay for a take-out or order-in option
Additional services are charged at an hourly rate of $50 / per hour.

Of course, things happen in all of our very busy lives. Please try and give us up to 7 days notice if you are going to need to move or cancel your meal service.
