What are Yummy Greens? . . .

Yummy Greens is a meal delivery, catering service and learning platform. We offer plant-based meals made with love and without preservatives, white sugar, MSGs, GMOs, palm oil or other highly processed ingredients. We deliver nutritious meals for families, businesses, and people on the go in Oslo.

Are your meals vegan? . . .

Yes, all of our cooking is prepared without any animal products.

Do I have to be vegan to eat your food? . . .

No. If you want to enjoy nutritious, balanced, and filling meals without harmful ingredients, you will love our conscious cuisine. Our food is for everyone!

How do I buy my food boxes? . . .

We have moved out form our production kitchen and are not delivering any food at the moment.

Keep an eye out for Yummy Greens selling food boxes at markets and events around Oslo! Sign up for our newsletter and follow our social media for updates.

Can I choose my menu? . . .

Our current system offers a well-balanced menu of 3 dishes each week. We work with a nutritionist and professional chefs to ensure each meal is nutritious, filling, and delicious!.

Where are your meals cooked? . . .

Our kitchen is in the heart of Oslo. Your meals are created by us, approved by a nutritionist and cooked with a team of professional chefs.

How can the meals be homemade? . . .

Our meals are cooked in a professional kitchen with a team of chefs, so the location is not exactly a home. For us, homemade food is not about the location, rather it is about the quality of the process. Our food is cooked with care for the ingredients, modern knowledge in ingredient-matching for optimal nutritional value, and love for you and your health. Homemade cooking tastes like love, doesn’t it? So does Yummy Greens.

Where do you deliver? . . .

Currently we are not delivering. We started to deliver in Oslo within “ring 2”. We're hoping to be able to deliver everywhere within ring 3 soon. For the future, we aim to expand across Norway and beyond!

What packaging do you use? . . .

We use boxes made from eco-friendly plant fibre (which means they are fully recyclable!), so it’s easy for you to discard in a sustainable way - simply put it in the green bag! In some cases, due to practicality we use plastic. Simply put it in the blue bag for recycling!

What happens if I'm not home when you deliver? . . .

It is your responsibility to be home for our delivery window, but we know things happen. We can leave it at your doorstep if you choose, but you must mark this request in your order. If you unexpectedly had to leave and our driver cannot reach you, they will place it on your doorstep if it looks acceptable. Otherwise, the driver will return your order to our kitchen to be held for 24 hours. After 24 hours, your food will no longer be available for pick up and a refund will not be possible.

Can I cancel my order? . . .

Once you have completed your order and paid, a refund is not possible. No need to worry about commitment - you are not signing a contract for recurring orders, only a one-time order.

How about nutrition? Will I get enough protein? . . .

Each meal is full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and fibre, and yes - you will get enough protein. We work together with a nutritionist to make sure every meal is well-balanced and leaves you feeling full yet energized!

Do I need to take any supplements, vitamins and so on? . . .

If you are going to change your food intake, you should always do some research first. Many of animal products are enriched with vitamins and so on. Everyone needs B12 and vitamin D, even if they eat meat. You may need to eat more when you eat plant-based, and you should always eat a variety of foods regardless of your diet. Keep in mind that eating more food doesn’t have to mean spending more. Instead, it means more opportunities for a variety of yummy flavour experiences!

Will I become protein-deficient if I only eat vegan food? . . .

No, there are plenty of studies that show protein-deficiency as a rarity while on a vegan diet. Plant-based foods contain all the essential amino acids, from which protein is built. Remember to eat a variety of plants to cover your need of the essential amino acids, which you will see in our prepared meals, and you will get enough protein.

How do I store my Yummy Greens meals? . . .

It’s important to put your Yummy Greens meals in the refrigerator when you receive them. Since all of our food is fresh (and preservative-free, chemical-free, etc.), it will go bad if not properly taken care of and/or eaten within a few days after delivery. Since the boxes are made of natural material, we can't guarantee how they will behave if stored in the freezer at -10 or below for an extended period, but eating your meals within the delivery week should leave you without troubles. You can always move your meals into freezer-safe boxes, if you own some.

When you want to eat your Yummy Greens but you're not near a stovetop, you can heat the boxes in the micro. We know it's handy, even though we don't recommend it due to nutrition and taste loss from the micro.
