California Meal Delivery Service | Sensible Meals 

From Sacramento to San Francisco, finding a healthy meal plan in California that’s easy to follow can be a big challenge. Sensible Meals can make it a whole lot simpler with meal prep delivery in California. Learn more about our convenient program here!


As the largest meal prep service in the United States, Sensible Meals is all about bringing you a healthier way to eat that is easy to follow. We’re based out of southern Louisiana, which is famous for heavily seasoned, deep-fried, irresistible foods, so we understand that when you live somewhere surrounded by temptation, eating well is not easy to do. Our chefs carefully create nutritious, well-balanced meals that are pre-packaged and delivered straight to our clients, and now we’re offering our services to other cities across the country. We’re happy and excited to add California meal delivery to that list!


Meal plans usually fail because they require too much planning and preparation; Sensible Meals works because we take care of all of that for you. Keeping things convenient is why our plan is so successful. You can have nutrient-rich meals delivered straight to your door for only $15 shipping; all you have to do is put them in the microwave.


We provide several plans including signature meals, double protein, single paleo, and double paleo, each uniquely crafted to accommodate special, weight-loss goals, dietary requirements, and training programs. For example, if you’re on a gluten-free diet, or perhaps have certain food intolerances, our paleo plans are a great option for you because they’re sugar-free, dairy-free, and gluten-free.

We love California

There’s a better, healthier, and more convenient option in California.

California is the third largest state in the USA, so it’s no wonder there’s so much to see. From the man-made spectacle of Los Angeles to the natural majesty of Redwood National and State Parks, Californa has something for everyone.


If camping and outdoor activities are what you’re after, Yosemite National Park is one of the most famous natural spaces in the country. Designated as a World Heritage site in 1984, Yosemite is famous for its waterfalls, giant Sequoia trees, granite cliffs, and even glaciers. Other national parks of interest include Joshua Tree, Death Valley, and Sequoia National Forest. The hiking and camping opportunities are plentiful– just make sure you’re fueled up with nutritious food before you embark on your adventure!


With delicious food often comes delicious wine! California’s wine country is home to over 800 wineries throughout Napa and Sonoma counties. Aside from wine tastings aplenty, you can enjoy hot-air balloon rides, bicycle tours, Michelin-starred restaurants, and luxurious hotels and resorts.


While California is known for its sunshine and warm climate, Lake Tahoe is known as a winter haven. Straddling the shared border of Nevada, award-winning skiing is available on mountains such as Kirkwood, Heavenly Mountain Resort, Squaw Valley, and Alpine Meadows. During non-snowy seasons, Lake Tahoe offers year-round recreation opportunities and a beautiful scenic byway if you’re in the mood for a long drive. (Don’t forget to pack healthy snacks!)


Of course, some of the most well-known destinations in California are its cities. The glitz and glamour of Hollywood legend looms larger than the streets of Los Angeles, and the city is backed to the brim with monuments to the film industry. Take your picture with the iconic Hollywood sign and stroll down the Hollywood Walk of Fame, or head to Universal Studios and Disney’s California Adventure to meet some of your favorite animated heroes up close. There’s culture beyond the movies in LA: grab lunch at the old Farmer’s Market, get inspired by art at The Getty Museum, shop til you drop on Rodeo Drive, or walk the Santa Monica Pier.


San Francisco lives up to its hippie reputation: walking down the streets of Haight-Ashbury, it’s easy to see remains of the free-love culture of the ‘60s. The iconic Golden Gate Bridge is arguably the most photographed bridge in the world, and the park at its feet is home to art museums, gardens, and more. Cable cars ride you over dramatically steep hills; neighborhoods like Chinatown and the Presidio each have their own character. Alcatraz, the former prison island, is another popular destination– but you don’t want to stay the night!


Whether you’re a local or a tourist, California’s attractions will keep you busy. Enjoy every moment by letting Sensible Meals take on the meal prep. Less time in the kitchen and healthier portions for your family mean more time to make the most of your healthy, happy lives.

Sensible Meals features four different meal plans, each catered to match a different combination of needs and goals. For example, if you eat a gluten-free diet or have issues with dairy, our paleo plans offer a great solution! If you are a woman who has reached your healthy weight and want a good maintenance program, then our double protein plan is an excellent choice.

You Can Keep the Food that You Love to Eat

Here’s one of the best parts, just because you’re eating healthy you don’t have to say goodbye to your favorite Louisiana foods!

Some of the most popular dishes like gumbo, jambalaya, and more, have found their way into our menu. The key is that they are portion-controlled and in line with your health goals.

You Can Still Eat What You Love - Just In the Right Portions

Ingrid Rinck, Sensible Meals’ founder, has been a fitness trainer for more than 20 years, so she’s certainly no stranger to a healthy lifestyle. However, when her son was diagnosed with Type I Diabetes, she began preparing all of his meals and had an epiphany; eating well was important, but portion sizes are really what made the biggest difference when it came to weight loss. Eating smaller portions when you live in America is easier said than done; we’re a society that has become accustomed to overindulging when it comes to our food. If you eat out at a restaurant, the odds are good that you’ll be served enough food to feed four people! If it’s on our plate, we eat it, even if it means we feel miserable afterward. If we start with a smaller portion, we can still satisfy our hunger, and not feel bloated and stuffed to the brim.

No Excuses

Whether you’re a “country mouse” or a “city mouse,” achieving proper nutrition and portion control on a regular basis can be hard to master. No matter what part of California you live in, finding the time to prepare healthy, balanced meals can be a challenge. Sensible Meals lets you power through all of those excuses because we handle the food prep and cooking for you. You get pre-packaged, perfectly-portioned meals, designed by professional chefs, and delivered directly to your door. When you think about how easy it is to get meal delivery in California for only $15, the choice to use Sensible Meals is as easy as hopping on a cable car in San Francisco. No need to scale that steep hill alone!
