Meal Plans

How & What

Wholesome Kitchen is an award winning casual style restaurant serving delicious healthy food, located in Mullingar, Co. Westmeath. We happen to have the best chefs around who work alongside a nutritionist to develop the tastiest and healthiest food.

Our ‘Meal Plans’ are very popular for many reasons such as if you simply want to save time, eat healthier, lose weight, gain muscle, eat vegetarian, vegan, gluten free etc. We provide up to 5 meals a day and 7 days a week including breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks. Simply place an order and we’ll deliver the meals to you chilled to reheat and enjoy at a time that suits you.

Our meals are made from scratch every day, to order, using the freshest and natural ingredients available. You will receive your meals chilled (not frozen) and you can decide to leave them in the fridge or freeze some to eat another day.

Your meals are delivered chilled in 100% recyclable (PET) plastic trays and are suitable for use in the fridge, freezer, microwave and oven. We’re currently working on sourcing compostable packaging for our meal plans.

All of our food is advertised and labelled with the correct nutritional information and allergens. Before you order your food and drink, please refer to our allergen guide for information about each product. Please ensure you check all labels thoroughly before consuming food and drink. As our kitchen handles foods containing all allergens (as per our allergy guide), there is always a risk of cross-contamination. Therefore we cannot guarantee that any product is entirely free from allergens. If you have a serious food allergy contact us in advance of placing an order and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.


Simply click the ‘Meal Plan’ page, select the meals and snacks that best suit your goals, checkout and we’ll deliver your food over the coming days.

At the moment we don’t have an automatic weekly subscription however we’re working on this. Once you’re ready to stock up again, simply login to your account, place your order and checkout in a matter of seconds!


We deliver to any address in the Republic of Ireland. We don’t currently deliver to Northern Ireland. DPD will deliver your order, chilled to your home or workplace.

Yes you need to be available to accept the delivery or alternatively arrange delivery with your neighbour. Unfortunately if you miss your delivery meals cannot be returned to DPD due to the fresh/chilled nature of the produce. Our meals are delivered fresh and chilled therefore it’s important that you refrigerate or freeze when the order is received.

Eating & Storage

All meals will be individually packaged and labelled with the correct nutritional information and allergens.

All you need is a microwave or oven. Our packaging is microwaveable too so you don’t even need a plate! All meals are labelled with specific instructions on how to reheat.

We never use any artificial or chemical preservatives therefore all prepared meals have a refrigerated shelf life of about 4-5 days. All food is labelled with specific storage instructions and you’ll find a ‘use by’ date on the nutrition label. All of our food should be kept refrigerated. Many of our customers prefer to freeze the food that they don’t intend to eat within the first 1-2 days to ensure it’s kept as fresh as possible.

Yes you can freeze all of our foods to keep them fresh (with the exception of salad dishes and some breakfasts). Simply defrost, reheat and enjoy at a later time that suits you. Our meals defrost very well in the fridge overnight, so feel free to stock your freezer!
