Summer 2022

Summer is coming and it’s definitely starting to heat up in San Diego! With school wrapping up and vacations on the horizon, schedules start to go a little bananas. But don’t let that mess up your healthy eating goals. Like always, we’ll be sweating it out in our kitchen all Summer long so YOU DON’T HAVE TO!  Woot!

In this post you’ll find:

  • modified menu for 4th of July Weekend – get ready for a post holiday detox!
  • A fun Summer freebie for our favorite clients and a way to win a $100 CCK Cash!
  • Important date reminders for what’s coming up this Summer.
  • An update on our No Waste Kitchen efforts.

Let us help you make this a great summer full of long, warm days, fun memories, and lots and lots of clean, healthy, plant forward eating!


The 4th of July is on a Monday this year, which means the weekend prior, we will be having a modified production for a few reasons:

  • Our crew needs a break.
  • Our kitchen is getting new floors.
  • You deserve a good, post holiday detox!

What does this mean for you? It means that the menu we will have available to order Friday July 1, will be dramatically different. Because we won’t have a full staff or full access to our facility, we won’t be cooking that weekend. But we also wont leave you high and dry and without any healthy options!

We will have a post holiday detox menu available! Which means you can order any combination of juices, smoothies and our delicious soups to be picked up or delivered Sunday July 3rd or delivered Monday July 4th (no pick up Monday, July 4th).

We’ll also bring our side salad back so you can order a soup and salad combo. And our treat and partner products menu will also be up and running.

We also have planned a special menu the week prior, full of entrées that will freeze and re-heat particularly well if you’d like to stock up the week of June 24th.

In summary:

  • June 24th: Special “freezable” menu, stock up if you want entrees the following week!
  • July 1st (4th of July Weekend): Modified, post holiday detox only menu and no pick up hours Monday 4th of July.
  • July 8th: Business as usual with a rested crew, new floors and detoxed clients!

Thank you for your flexibility and understanding. We hope the soup, salad, smoothies, treats and special menu the week prior help you feel nourished & successful!
