Enhancing RFG Meals

Roots Food Group (RFG) meals are designed to be delicious and nutritious right out of the box, but there are plenty of ways to add your own touch to suit personal taste preferences or just to mix things up a bit.

Creative Ways to Enhance Your Meals

  1. Add Fresh Ingredients: Toss in some fresh herbs, a sprinkle of seeds, or chopped vegetables to add texture and boost nutritional value.
  2. Mix and Match: Combine elements from different RFG meals to create new flavor profiles or more substantial dishes. Check out our full menu for pairing ideas.

Best Reheating Methods

  1. Microwave Techniques: For quick reheating, cover your meal with a damp paper towel to keep moisture in and avoid drying out the food.
  2. Oven Methods: Reheat in an oven preheated to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Transfer the meal to an oven-safe dish and cover with foil to preserve moisture and ensure even heating.

Tips for Batch Reheating

  1. Prepare in Advance: If you know you'll need multiple meals ready at once, use the oven to reheat several meals simultaneously, saving time and energy.
  2. Staggered Scheduling: Start with meals that take the longest in the oven first, then add others later, organizing your reheating schedule to maximize efficiency and minimize waiting.

Roots Food Group (RFG) meals are designed not only for convenience and nutrition but also for flexibility, allowing you to adapt easily to any lifestyle changes or schedule adjustments.

Streamlining Your Meal Prep Process

  2. Combine Different Meals: Create new dishes by mixing components from various RFG meals. This not only keeps your diet interesting but also helps you use up leftovers efficiently. Explore various combinations on our menu page.

Adapting to Schedule Changes
