What You'll Get
Items that require assembly are often more complex than they look, leading to rooms lined with wobbly bookshelves and landfills full of unfinished jigsaw puzzles. Obviate assembly with today's Groupon for healthy, pre-assembled meals from Simply Homemade's Naperville or Wheaton locations. Choose from the following options:
- For $62, new clients get five meals (a $125 value). Each meal contains four to six servings.
- For $72, new clients get 12 mini-meals (a $145 value). Each mini-meal contains three servings.
- For $96, new clients get eight meals (a $192.50 value). Each meal contains four to six servings.
The staff at Simply Homemade assembles 22 different ready-to-cook meals for busy diners, preventing the need for menu planning, grocery shopping, ingredient prep, and clean-up. Instead of harvesting a field or hunting a buffalo, clients simply make room in their freezers and stop by one of two locations for their dinners, which will be frozen at pick-up. Mini-meals contain two to three servings, while full-sized meals contain four to six servings, making them an ideal choice for a family or a very hungry Venus flytrap. Groupon-getters can choose from the pre-assembled repasts on Simply Homemade's menu, which changes from month to month. Upcoming September selections include oven-baked buttermilk chicken with green beans, mini-meatloaves with peas, and heart-friendly pork tenderloin with broccoli and a sweet-and-spicy raspberry chipotle glaze. Dinners brim with wholesome ingredients, including veggies, low-sodium broths, and all-natural meats free of growth hormones and sassy mouths. Nutritional information is readily accessible on each menu, along with detailed cooking instructions.
Founded by two moms with more than 25 years of food-industry experience, Simply Homemade strives to help families eat healthy and avoid unhealthy levels of stress. In developing their menus, the duo partners with experts from all corners of the food world, including dietitians, home economists, and mad scientists with a passion for homestyle spaghetti dinners.
Today's deal is only valid for pre-assembled meals on Simply Homemade's menu, not meals that require assembly or customer-assembled meals.

About Simply Homemade
Before they were moms with six children between them, Simply Homemade owners Cindy and Stephanie were food-industry professionals, studying nutrition and food-product development. Now, they've combined both experiences to create a company that supplies healthy, handcrafted meals to busy families. Working off of a monthly menu of 22 entrees, the duo whips up mouthwatering pastas, burgers, and kebabs chock-full of whole grains, hand-trimmed chicken, and natural beef from Heartland Meats. Then, they either preassemble meals for customers to pick up or set up ingredients for customers to assemble themselves onsite. The latter option, which takes about two hours, makes it easier for customers to tailor dinners to a child's love of mushrooms or a dog's disdain for cilantro.
