Healthy, Affordable Prepared Meals

Sensible Meals provides fresh, affordable, and convenient meals. Our goal is to create a meal program with food that people actually want to eat at a price they can afford.

So many people fail at diets throughout their life because they can’t stick to the rigorous, monotonous, bland, and expensive options available, leaving them frustrated and feeling like a failure.

We change that by giving you food you like, portion sizing it, shipping it right to your door, and giving it to you for the best price around!

Please watch this video for a message from our creator, Ingrid Rinck.

“I am a trainer/gym owner for 20 years that struggled with yo yo dieting because I didn’t know that I could actually enjoy food in moderation! I thought I had to steer clear of fun foods and stuff myself with boring foods to be the weight I wanted. Once I stopped depriving myself and just started portioning my food correctly I lost weight and have stopped the miserable diet/weight gain cycle I was stuck in my whole life. Sensible Meals isn’t just changing thousand of clients lives. It has changed mine”
