- What is the best way to heat my Muscle Meals?
Muscle Meals will taste best if they are heated from thawed in the plastic bags. It is safe to reheat meals in the bags as all materials are BPA-free.
Follow these six simple steps:
1. Defrost your meals before reheating.
Remember to put your meals in the fridge the day before eating. This will make it quick and easy to reheat your meals.
2. Heat the meal bags for approximately 90 seconds.
Once defrosted, take your meal and remove the packets from the container. Place your protein and carbs/vegetables upright in the blue container. Leave the sauce aside until later.
3. Remove bags halfway through heating & move food around.
Halfway through heating, remove the bags and move the food around to help distribute heat evenly.
4. Heat sauces for the last 10 seconds.
Many of our sauces can be served cold. If you would like to heat your sauce, place it in the microwave for no more than 10 seconds.
5. Cut the bags open and drain any excess liquid.
Some foods, especially fish and vegetables, will release water during heating. Drain any excess liquid from the bag before serving.
6. Serve your meal in the blue container or on a plate. Enjoy!
Heating times may vary depending on your microwave, so be sure to check this the first couple of times to determine your ideal reheating time.
To heat meals from frozen, it will take 3-4 minutes. Remove the bags after 90 seconds and shake the contents of the bags (grip bags on opposite corners and shake) to evenly distribute food, and then return to the microwave for a further 90 seconds. Repeat if necessary.
If your bag has expanded during reheating, you can poke a little air hole in the bag to prevent it popping.
Shake sauce sachets well before mixing with food. The following sauces can be served at room temperature: Mint yoghurt, mango mint, mango chilli, sweet chilli, lemon vinaigrette, red wine vinaigrette.
