Do you have a minimum order?2022-04-27T18:15:16+02:00

Yes, we have a minimum package order of CHF 45 per day. Our goal is to make sure you gain a sufficient amount of nutrients, minerals & vitamins. For that reason we require a minimum package.

For a complete clean eating experience, we recommend you to order at least:

  • breakfast
  • vitamin shot
  • lunch
  • treat
  • dinner

To reach our minimum order value, your meal plan should contain at least two of the main meals breakfast, lunch, and dinner. You can customise your perfect meal plan directly online.

Do you use enough protein?2022-03-18T15:26:26+01:00

Yes!

Our program is designed to give you all of the bioavailable, easy-to-digest plant-based protein you need to build lean muscle, trigger metabolic functions in your body and keep your energy soaring. Some of our favourite plant-based protein sources are flaxseeds, chia & hemp seeds, nuts, chickpeas, lentils & beans, tofu & tempeh.

Our clean eating concept is inspired by the latest research for longevity from Professors like Valter Longo & David Sinclair. Our philosophy follows an approach of roughly 0.7 gram of plant protein per kilo of body weight. If your goal is to build muscle mass and require more proteins, we are happy to support you with ideas and suggestions to complement our meal plans.

What is your calorie & macronutrient approach?2021-12-06T20:59:20+01:00

Calories are a measure of energy but each calorie is very different depending on the type of food you eat. Calories from carbs can’t be compared to those from fats or proteins because they are differently processed and absorbed by your body. 

So rather than counting calories, we want to help you eat the right amount of nutrient-rich food using a balanced macronutrient approach. Every meal that we prepare for you is using seasonal ingredients that vary from week to week.

Below you can find the nutritional values of our two signature meal programs LEAN & STRONG.

How do you deal with allergies?2022-06-15T15:04:35+02:00

yes, we can accommodate certain allergies

All our meals are vegan, gluten-free, refined sugar-free, and 100% natural. We use organic nuts and coconut so if you are allergic to nuts, we currently cannot cater for your allergy.

Additionally, we offer the option to choose up to two dislikes when ordering.

Are your meals fully cooked?2022-06-15T15:07:54+02:00

Yes, all our meals are fully cooked and ready-to-eat. You can reheat them in a microwave or in a pan in less than 5 minutes.

DINNER

For most dinners, we recommend reheating them in pan on medium heat. Transfer first to a pan, then add a little bit of water, and cook for 5 minutes.

LUNCH

We recommend to consume the lunches at room temperature. You can take it out of the fridge 30 to 60 minutes before eating. The lunches can also be served warm but we recommend to remove the leafy greens prior to reheating. You can serve the warm lunch with lettuce on the side and add the dressing at the end.

BREAKFAST

The breakfast bowls can easily be reheated by transferring to a pan and cooking for 5 minutes on medium heat.

Is it a diet?2022-06-15T15:10:22+02:00

No

Our meal plans have not been designed to be a diet. Instead, all our meals are highly nutritious to keep you satiated and energised for the day. We only use whole ingredients. That means no refined sugars, nor processed foods. Everything we cook is 100% natural and therefore without preservatives.

Our meals are plant-based, so without meat and dairy products. If you are used to consume sugar, dairy and meat, you might experience weight loss. Your body will initially for the first few days crave sugar but eventually you will feel stronger and leaner.

If you are looking for a reset or cleanse, A-LIFE is the answer !

Can I choose my menu?2022-06-15T15:12:47+02:00

We offer a set menu of healthy meals that rotates every 4 weeks. We also adjust the menus with the season and availability from our farmers. You can view the MENU for the next two weeks here. We strongly believe in using local, seasonal, and fresh produce. All our meals are plant-based, 100% natural, and made with whole foods. We don’t use refined sugar nor processed food. We even make our own plant-based milks by blending nuts with Züri water!

When shall I get EASE-IN?2022-03-18T15:57:26+01:00

EASE-IN is a 2-day Program that we created to use before A-LIFE.

The 2 days before you start A-LIFE can completely transform your fasting-mimicking experience. They will provide the preparation period before you start A-LIFE and allow you to smoothly transition into the A-LIFE program.

Our team of chefs have prepared the ready-to-eat meals using our whole food and clean eating concept. Both packages EASE-IN & EASE-OUT contain each 2 bags that will cover your food intake for 2 days. They will be delivered to your selected delivery address.

When shall I get EASE-OUT?2022-03-18T15:46:26+01:00

EASE-OUT is a 2-day Program that we created to use after A-LIFE.

The 2 days following the end of A-LIFE can completely transform your fasting-mimicking experience. They will provide the transformation period after you complete A-LIFE and allow for a smooth transition back to normal & will help you build a strong gut.

Our team of chefs have prepared the ready-to-eat meals using our whole food and clean eating concept. Both packages EASE-IN & EASE-OUT contain each 2 bags that will cover your food intake for 2 days. They will be delivered to your selected delivery address.

A-LIFE Program2022-03-18T15:28:28+01:00

A-LIFE is a 5-day program inspired by the fasting-mimicking diet created by Dr. Valter Longo. He has dedicated years of research to achieving longevity, slow ageing, reducing disease and weight management through plant-based and whole food nutrition. You can read more about it in his book “The Longevity Diet” which we highly recommend.

EATbyalex created this program using the concept of fasting-mimicking which puts your body into a fasting mode while still providing the right nutrients and supplements to your body. The restricted calorie diet makes your body think you are fasting and therefore reset and cleanse.

The package includes all your meals as well as supplements for 5 days. All the meals will be delivered once for the whole week.
