Peruse dozens of eclectic and delectable recipes before settling on three squares. Kick off the day with a bacon-and-cheese omelette or a bowl of cranberry-apple-nutty oatmeal. Lunches include saucy chicken featuring roasted apples or a shrimp scampi draped in penne pasta, and dinner offerings fire up honey-dijon sirloin coupled with winter veggies or oven-baked crispy cod sided with pacific veggies. Supper Thyme's convenient, pre-made edibles are based around a nourishing 1,200–1,800 calorie-per-day diet that will aid in shedding unwanted poundage and complicated abacus calorie counting.
Supper Thyme's goal is to de-stress the breakfast, lunch, and dinner hours by inviting visitors to craft hearty and nutritious meals beforehand. After perusing the monthly rotating menu, customers can select an assortment of calorie-conscious, family-friendly, or organically inspired dishes and schedule an appointment to come in and assemble the ingredients. Staff members then gather all of the necessary ingredients and utensils, ensuring that each meal can be assembled in as few as 10 minutes. In between portioning out servings, visitors can enjoy a snack while listening to music or chatting with fellow attendees in the shop’s casual, low-stress kitchen environment. The meals can remain safely frozen in homes' freezers, with easy-to-follow cooking instructions allowing customers to quickly thaw and cook entrees whenever they might need to feed families, guests, or a lost restaurant reviewer.
