Summary

Welcome to the Thistle family! Here’s a detailed glimpse of what to expect from your first delivery. Get tips on finalizing your order, receiving and unpacking your delivery, and preparing and enjoying Thistle’s delicious meals.

Your life is about to get easier. With a Thistle subscription, many chores will become things of the past: grocery shopping, meal prep, cooking, and clean-up. Our members report that Thistle allows them to spend more time doing things they love like heading to a yoga class, spending time with friends and family, or relaxing outdoors.

But first, the food must arrive at your doorstep. Here’s what to expect from your first delivery with Thistle!

1. Sneak a Peek & Finalize Your Order

Want to see what’s in next week’s delivery? Visit your Upcoming page, where you can also edit the upcoming week’s order no later than Thursday 11:59pm. And if you want more flexibility than an occasional order edit, check out all the options available via the Thistle Flex Plan.

2. It’s Delivery Day!

Spotting your first Thistle delivery on your porch may give you a Christmas morning kind of feeling. Depending on the plan you’ve picked, orders arrive some combo of early week, mid week, or end of week. Ice packs keep all meals cold, so no need to worry if they sit out for a bit. If part of our local delivery area, your meals will come in an insulated green Thistle bag. If you are one of our shipping members, you’ll get your meals in a box. In order for our drivers to easily find you, be sure to update your delivery instructions with detailed info.

3. Unpack Your Delicious Thistle Goodies

For any meals, snacks, and juices you don’t eat right away, store them in the fridge for later— we recommend consuming Thistle’s food within two days. Our streamlined packaging is clear and stackable. With a fridge full of nicely organized meals featuring a rainbow of delicious food, it’s easy to see what’s what.

4. Heat as Needed 

While breakfasts, lunches, and snacks typically come ready-to-eat, Thistle’s dinners and soups are tastier when heated up. Sauté meals in a pan with a splash of olive oil, or transfer to a microwave-safe dish to re-heat. Your healthy and delicious dinner will be ready to eat in under 5 minutes. Rinse delivery containers and toss them into the recycling. Tip: sauce containers/ramekins are compostable —they are made of plant-based Greenware! Compostable packaging is just one element of our many sustainability initiatives; read about all of them here.

5. Customize on the Fly

Meal options include breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks, soup, and are easy to mix up as needed. Want a lighter breakfast? Enjoy one of Thistle’s snacks. Want lunch to be your heartiest meal of the day? Heat up a dinner option. For more ways to creatively customize Thistle meals, check out our favorite meal hacks.

You can also create multi-course meals and healthy snack-filled days with juices, shots, and sides. Order add-ons such as avocados, hard-boiled eggs, coffee, tea, and chocolate hit the spot when you crave a treat or want your meal to be a little extra.

6. Enjoy!

Yup, it’s that easy. Enjoy nutritious and delicious meals. Enjoy fewer chores. Enjoy more free time.

Your Thistle bag is also meant to be enjoyed again and again. It’s great for grocery shopping and picnics. Not using it? While temporarily suspended due to concerns over COVID-19, under normal circumstances, you can return it for us to reuse. Simply place your bags and ice packs on your doorstep before your next delivery arrives. Think you might forget? We’ll send you a text reminder.

7. Give us feedback!

We want to make sure our meals are the best they can be. We’d love your feedback on the meals you’ve tried. Please feel free to rate your meals here after your deliveries have begun. Our culinary team analyzes all feedback to improve upon their current recipes. We really appreciate and value your opinion!
