5 Tips For Your First Delivery

Posted by Terra's Kitchen on Fri, Mar 2, '18

Its understandable to have a few questions before your first Terra's Kitchen delivery! Don't worry, we'll be there with you every step of the way. Our care team is available with resources to answer any question you have. In the meantime, here are our top tips for a successful first delivery.

1.) Unpack efficiently

When you're unpacking your Terra's Kitchen vessel, there are a few tricks that will make your life easier! If you live in an apartment or if your packages get delivered far from your kitchen, use a tote to bring your order inside. That way, you won't have to lift the vessel and you won't forget to put your vessel back out for pickup, a win-win!

Tip 1 - Use a tote bag to unpack your vessel 

2.) Organize your fridge

We recommend stacking meal ingredients together so they're easy to find when you're ready to start cooking. Look for the numbers on each container. They correspond to the numbers on your recipe cards. 

3.) Freeze proteins you aren't using right away

As  you're unpacking everything in your order, choose which meals you want to cook right away and freeze the rest of your proteins. This will ensure they are at peak freshness when you're ready to cook. All you'll need to do is move your protein from the freezer to the fridge in the morning and you'll be ready to go!

4.) Follow vessel return directions

Check your label to see if your vessel was delivered by FedEx or UPS. If FedEx delivered, you will peel the top label to reveal the return shipping label. If UPS delivered, your label doesn't need to be peeled, simply place your vessel outside to be picked up the next day.
