Who: Do you want to lose weight? Do you have little to no time to cook healthy? Are you are confused about what healthy food even is? Do you hate cooking? Have you just started out with plant-based food, or are just curious about it? Have you been plant-based so long that you just need a change? Has your Dr. recently advised you that you need to change your lifestyle?
What: Pandora’s Lunchbox offers non-GMO, seasonal, plant-based, organic meal plans, customized to your individual preferences; an intake form is completed prior to delivery, to make sure your tastes and health concerns are taken into consideration. Meals are typically (2) servings of grains, (1) serving of protein (soy, nuts or legumes), (2) servings of vegetables and (0-1) serving of fat. Pandora's Lunchbox meals do not contain pre-packaged ingredients such as veggie burgers, vegan cheezes (unless hand-crafted by Alicia), sauces, mixes, etc. – the ingredients are custom-blended and created by hand, including most of the spice blends and dressings. Click here to fill out a very short intake form, and see exactly what is provided with our services...it's more than just delivery!
When: All orders must be placed 2 days in advance, to guarantee delivery.
Pandorable Menu: the last two items on this menu change weekly and the menu is posted Friday, for the following Monday and Thursday deliveries. The first four meals are set for the season, unless there's an overwhelming demand for a new meal item! :)
Grab-n-Go Menu: this is a set menu available at local eateries and coffee shops. Items from this menu are available for delivery Monday and Thursday only, and must be combined with at least 2 of the meals from the "Pandorable Menu."
Where: where is it being delivered? Your work? Your home? Since deliveries are specifically routed according to client’s orders and locations, there is no set time for delivery. You will be notified when there is an ETA for your location. Please note if you are not available, your food will be left on your doorstep—please leave a cooler out if you will not be home; Pandora's Lunchbox is not responsible for food that is stolen or not edible, due to weather conditions. Please check your location below, for notes on delivery fees; if you aren’t sure about the fee for your home or office, please feel free to ask.

Why: Pandora's Lunchbox knows how confusing it is to muddle through all the news, social media posts, and information your friends and family give you about nutrition. We know how hard it is to eat whole-food, plant-based, clean meals that actually have flavor! We know how hard it can be to get to the health food store or natural market, just to get your lunch or dinner! We’ve been where you are…frustrated and hangry!
How: The Pandorable menu is posted Friday, for the following Monday and Thursday deliveries (and is also emailed to the mailing list Friday morning). Orders must be received by Friday evening, to ensure prep and delivery; text or email your order, and Alicia will do the rest! If you have food allergies, sensitivities or dislikes, please advise. We will accommodate any and all requests, as long as it's stated when the order is being placed. Any and all substitutions are welcome, at no extra charge! Meals are delivered in recyclable to-go containers that can be reused– please reuse them properly, or return them to Alicia so they can be sterilized and used again.
Testimonials: I've been making tasty creations for health food stores since 2006, when I began working for Sweet Caroline’s Organic Market (previously in Bay Shore, NY). I obtained my Master’s Degree in Holistic Wellness in 2011, teach workshops on various healing topics as well as cooking demos, and have been involved in creating and studying raw vegan and Ayurvedic plant-powered foods since 2009. I currently work mornings at Golden Sparrow in Bayport as a plant-powered chef.
Catering from 10-35 also available, as well as 3-7 day raw detox plans and Ayurvedic cleanses. Please email me for details.
