One of the coast's favorite healthy eateries branches out into meal planning and take-out. The main take-away? What's healthy can also be delicious!

“For the last couple of years a lot of customers really wanted us to do grab-and-go and meal-planning made from scratch and healthy,” Di said. When the Zone Meals owner decided to move on, Di said, “The door opened for us.”
Wholey Foods offers five plans consisting of five days of breakfast meals, lunch meals and dinners with salad. The plans start with the basics (proteins, veggies and fruits) and progress with the addition of more protein, dairy and grains. There’s a KETO plan, too, and an add-on option for snacks.
Soon the kitchen will also roll out a “Wholey Seniors” plan designed for those over 60 who want smaller portions of healthy meals. “We will be taking orders starting now for delivery or pickup on Feb. 25,” Di said.
Don’t worry about getting bored by the same meals over and over. There’s a six-week rotation of recipes. The weekly meal plans start at $80 plus tax (for 15 meals) and top out at $145. There’s a small charge for delivery.
And speaking of Starfish, 10 percent of the profits from Wholey Foods goes to support the nonprofit cafe, which helps those recovering from life’s hardships through education and training.
And more good news from the new venue: Wholey Foods will begin using compostable containers by March 15, if not sooner.
Wholey Foods will host a grand opening on Wednesday, Feb. 19. There'll be special incentives offered all day to try out the service, plus treats and bites from 4- 6pm.
