Q. What was the motivation behind starting “Real Meals”?
It began with a change in lifestyle and becoming aware of what was in the food I was feeding my family. I was appalled with what I learnt. We started eating primarily organic and I started making everything from scratch. After talking to parents at school and functions I found many had the same concerns but with busy work and family schedules did not have the necessary time to cook “clean” meals. We believe everyone should be able to eat clean healthy prepared meals so we started Real Meals. We aim to make comfort food that is familiar, delicious, good for you and convenient.
Q. What is your most popular menu item?
We would have to narrow this question to category as well these answers are based on market trends not online sales. Our most popular soup is the Carrot Coconut Curry The most popular Stew or Chilli is the Veggie Chilli. Our most popular Casserole is the English Cottage Pie.
Q. Do you have a personal favourite?
I love the 3 Bean + Roasted Chicken soup, Granny’s Chicken Pot Pie and 3 Bean Beefy Chilli.
Q. What makes your meals different from what shoppers can find else where?
We make everything from scratch, our meals are not processed as they are handmade, we don’t add any preservative or additives.
Q. Why do you think farmers markets are important in the community?
Knowing where you food comes from is imperative. When you go to a grocery store you can’t get to know the tomato farmer or the chicken farmer. Building relationships with you food suppliers not only gives you piece of mind about what your eating but it creates an amazing sense of community. We love sharing our products with our local Farmers Markets and cherish the communities that we are becoming part of.
