How do I heat my meals?

Our containers are microwave safe. Remove the lid and place it loosely over the container. (To allow heat to escape and prevent the food from drying out, the container should be covered, but not “sealed.”) Because microwaves vary, we recommend heating in 30-second increments and checking the temperature. Most meals heat within 45 seconds to 1 minute. Before heating, be sure to remove any separate containers with cold items, such as sour cream, yogurt, fruit, or lettuce.

Do you recommend certain meals for certain times?

To optimize your metabolic rate, we recommend eating a meal or snack every 3 to 4 hours. You’ll never feel too full or too hungry. If you order off of the a la carte menu, the timing of your meals is up to you. If you select a meal plan (get lean or muscle builder), we structure the meals so that you know exactly what to eat, when.

What is the refrigerated shelf life of meals?

All of our meals are labeled with an expiration date. Properly stored/refrigerated meals last 4 to 5 days. Remember: we do not use any preservatives in our meals!

Do you freeze meals before delivery?

No way! All of our meals are prepared fresh and never frozen. We also do not recommend freezing meals because it can diminish the flavor and quality of ingredients.


What areas are in your delivery zone?

We deliver in the New Orleans, Northshore and Baton Rouge area. If you have questions, please call (504) 309-5427 or (225) 615-7145 to confirm delivery in your area.

Can I pick up meals at Clean Creations?

Yes! If you plan on picking up you do not have to pay a delivery fee or rent an insulated cooler. Just select “local pickup” at checkout and in the “delivery note section” specify that you would like a brown bag pickup. This will alert our staff to load your delivery in a paper bag instead of an insulated cooler. Pickup hours and location: Sunday 8-2/ Wednesday 10-6 1105 Lafayette st Gretna La 70053

I didn’t receive my delivery. What happened?

If you missed a delivery, please call (504) 309-5427 or (225) 615-7145. There are several reasons you may not receive a delivery. Our driver may not be able to access your home, non-payment, a scheduled hold, and unexpected circumstances may cause delivery delays.

Can you deliver at a specific time?

No. Because we’re growing and signing on new customers every week, our delivery routes and schedule varies. The good news? Our insulated delivery bags and ice packs are equipped to withstand even the most brutal Louisiana weather. Your delivery will be fresh and ready to eat whatever the time of day.

What do I do with the insulated cooler bag?

Please leave the bag containing the thawed ice packs outside the night before your scheduled delivery day. This means you’ll leave the bag outside Saturday night if you have a Sunday delivery, and Tuesday night if delivery is Wednesday. We collect the bags and ice packs and leave your meals in a new insulated bag. In the event that we deliver to you and we are unable to retrieve a bag upon dropping a new bag there is a $5 bag fee. Please see BAG POLICY for details regarding bag/ ice packs/ fees.

Why is there a deposit for the insulated cooler bag?

We charge a one-time, refundable $40 bag deposit when you sign up. At the end of service, all cooler bags and ice packs must be returned or picked up by Clean Creations. A $40 per bag fee will be billed to the account upon closing if bags are not returned. If all bags are retrieved on the first attempt, we will refund $30.00 of the bag deposit; the remaining $10.00 is our pick-up fee. If we have to schedule additional attempts to pick up the bag, we will deduct $10.00 from the deposit per attempt. Initial last bag pick up fee is $10.00; customer refund is $30.00
2nd attempt is $10.00; customer refund is $20.00
3rd attempt is $20.00; customer refund is $0 If you would like the full $40 refunded you can drop off your cooler to our facility (1105 Lafayette St Gretna La 70053)

Can I leave the insulated bags outside, or have them delivered to an outside refrigerator?

No. Due to the specialized requirements for delivery, we are not able to unload bags into an outdoor refrigerator. Our insulated bags and ice packs have been rigorously tested to ensure food is kept at a safe temperature.

Can I request to have the bag placed in a particular location at delivery?

Yes. Please let us know about any delivery restrictions, special instructions or specifications in the “order note section” at checkout.

What happens if I forget to leave the bag outside?

We will note the missed bag on your account and complete the delivery. Please leave both bags outside for your next scheduled delivery.
