FED BY TRACI (GRACE)

Hey there, 

My name is Traci but my brother for some reason calls me Grace. The nickname stuck.  I'm currently an Audience Switcher (Tv Sitcoms) - Writer - Home Cook - Lyme/POTS Warrior - Lover of Soups - former ice skating enthusiast (until I realized I wasn't good at ice skating)

I've always loved to cook— I’d host dinner parties, eat four-course meals and drink good wine, maybe even do a little karaoke.  OK, I'd just get my friends drunk and make them do the karaoke.  While enjoying these lavish dinner parties filled with truffle mac & cheese, Italian chicken cutlets (breaded twice), and bundt cake, I got sick.  I was first diagnosed with POTS, a syndrome that affects your autonomic nervous system.  With further research and persistence, I learned that this syndrome was caused by Lyme Disease.  And one of the biggest changes I’d have to make: my diet.  This consisted of...

No Dairy - No Gluten - No Sugar - No Soy - No Happiness

Shocked at all the limitations but eager to feel better, I started this diet.  And I felt starved.  My mom had to fly out to California and do some recipe soul-searching.  While I lie on my couch, tired, as thin as 90s Heidi Klum, my mom cooked and discovered things like chick pea flour, nutritional yeast, lentil pasta; all things I refused to put in my body prior to my diagnosis. I mean healthy food, bleurgh.  But I was force fed and discovered...it was good!

Cut to a few months into treatment, my energy was resurfacing and my knife skills called me back to the kitchen.  I started finding that I could not only cook yummy, healthy foods but I was getting good at it.  I had to prep my meals for work, as working on a TV set with craft service doesn't allow for the necessary nutrients my dysfunctional immune system needed. I looked into meal plans originally but I couldn't find one that was nut free.  That’s right, add nuts to the ever-growing list of things my body hated.  Another blog for another day.  Now, however,  my 7-year-old nephew and I have another thing in common: a tree nut allergy and a love for Paw Patrol.  Just kidding, I'm not that into Paw Patrol.  

I'm not a nutritionist or a dietician, but I have a good knowledge of food as I have to eat to live.  With that said, my goal was to come up with food that anybody could feel safe eating and know their meals come from a good place.  A healthy place.  A place of healing.  And a place where you can't believe you're eating chocolate chip cookies made with sweet potato puree! Let me help you love what you eat and find happiness in your food again!

FAQs


General Questions

HOW ARE YOUR SOUPS PACKAGED?

We freeze all of our soups in 16oz BPA-free plastic containers. 

HOW LONG DO YOUR SOUPS LAST?

Soups that are frozen generally last for 6 months. We recommend you eat within the six month time period.  Once defrosted use within one week.

HOW DO I HEAT UP SOUP?

For best results I recommend thawing the frozen soup in the refrigerator. Once it's thawed pour into a saucepan and gently bring to a boil. If you don't have time to thaw, you can put into a saucepan but heat on a low.

HOW LONG DO YOUR MEALS LAST?

We recommend you eat our meals within a week.

ARE YOUR INGREDIENTS ORGANIC?

Yes. We are dedicated to buying certified organic foods.

ARE YOUR FOODS ALLERGEN FRIENDLY?

I personally cannot eat gluten, dairy or nuts. We do not use those ingredients. However we do cook in a shared kitchen that has equipment that may have been used for cooking with these items. If you have a severe allergy, you must proceed with caution even though we try our best.

 

Shipping & Delivery Questions

DO YOU DELIVER TO MY AREA?

If you are local to Los Angeles, check out our local delivery zone map here to see how much delivery would cost. Or, simply enter your address in at checkout and it will calculate for you. If you are not local to Los Angeles please reach out and we can quote you a price for delivery or shipping, or simply enter in your address at checkout and it will calculate for you.

DO YOU SHIP TO MY AREA?

WHAT IS THE MINIMUM OF SOUPS THAT CAN BE SHIPPED

We do not ship less than 8 soups at a time, and ship in quantities of 8 and 10. If you would like to order more than 10, orders can only be shipped in multiple boxes.

HOW MUCH DOES delivery and SHIPPING COST?

Local home delivery is between $10-40 dependent on vicinity to the kitchen and shipping is between dependent on amount and distance.

Please note we can only ship soups; no shipping of meals or sweets. We have a $40 minimum order total for local delivery. If you’re unsure if you qualify for local delivery, please shoot us an email at info@gracefullyfed.com or take a look at our local delivery zone. Delivery and shipping amounts will be calculated at checkout.

However, if you don’t live within home delivery distance to our kitchen in LA we can ship to you! Please calculate shipping in your cart to see the price of your delivery or shipping rate as it depends on the distance and amount of food being ordered.

Ground - For California and neighboring states this may be your best option.  It generally takes two days but most times gets there in one.  The soups should remain frozen for two days in our insulated kit, however certain temperatures and shipping routes can change that - only ordering Overnight guarantees 1 day frozen delivery. 

Fedex 2 Day - This is a great option for the Midwest, East Coast Most times although NOT guaranteed it will arrive in two days frozen. 

Overnight - Gets there overnight! Best option if you want your soups to arrive guaranteed in one day.

As a rule of thumb, if the soups arrive frozen they can go back in the freezer up to 6 months,  if they arrive slushy and not completely thawed they can go back in freezer for up to 6 months.  If they arrive thawed, they will last 5 -7 days in fridge.

Please note, we are not responsible for damages and/or rerouting of packages.**

WHEN WILL YOU SEND OUT MY SHIPMENT?

If you order Wednesday-Friday your soups will ship out on the following Monday.

If you order Saturday-Sunday your order will ship out the following Tuesday.

If you order Monday-Tuesday your order will ship out the following Wednesday.

*All shipping dates have a cutoff time of 6pm PST

**Please note that we are not responsible for any delivery delays due to incorrect or incomplete addresses provided to us. Deliveries that are returned or require rerouting due to incorrect addresses may be subject to additional charges for re-delivery.

DO YOU SHIP MEALS AS WELL?

We currently do not ship anything but soups for reasons of keeping the food fresh. This includes any meals, sweets, and sides.

HOW DO I KNOW WHEN MY MEALS HAVE BEEN DELIVERED?

We will text you once the meals are delivered and we will knock unless instructed to not do so. You will receive a text from the delivery driver when they are on the way so you can be aware of the exact delivery time. We do recommend purchasing an insulated bag that we can switch out every week. This will help keep your food items cold. We will leave the insulated bag or paper bag on your front porch or in a specified area of your choice. Once the food is delivered we are not responsible for any food spoilage or damage.

 WILL MY DELIVERY BE FRESH IF IT IS LEFT OUTSIDE?

Our insulated packaging is designed to keep your meals fresh during transit. Our paper bags are not insulated, but if you purchased frozen soups your food generally stays cold. If you receive your meals later than expected, please use your best judgment by giving them a check for smell and consistency. We also suggest making sure your meals are cool to the touch. We advise that you place all meals in the refrigerator immediately upon delivery. If soups are slushy to frozen consistency they may go back in the freezer. If you are at all concerned with the freshness of your meals or soups, or have any questions about storage, please do let us know.

WHAT IF I DO NOT WANT TO PAY FOR OR KEEP THE GRACEFULLY FED INSULATED BAG?

We will pick up the insulated bag, ice packs, and containers on your next delivery day. Please leave them outside for us.
