We work to serve and to help our community live a more stress free, convenient and healthy lifestyle through our delicious meals.

What Sets Us Apart
At UNREFINED, ingredients are our top priority! Why? So our customers know what they are putting in their bodies and how it benefits them. Everything is created in-house and from scratch, from our sauces to our meals to our delicious protein bites. Our meals are delivered fresh, never frozen, and consumed best within 5-7 days.
Why Ingredients Matter
Over 70 million people in the U.S. have digestive issues that cause discomfort while eating. This is due to an unhealthy gut. For the food we consume to be broken down into a simple form that can deliver all of the nutrients throughout our bodies, we need good bacteria and a healthy gut. Gut health is the number one influence on our bodies and well-being, from our immune system to our metabolism to our brain. So our team focuses on providing real food to help our clients look their best and feel their best.
Gluten and Dairy Free
Our menu is 100% gluten and dairy-free.
Why? Because these two ingredients are common allergens in most diets and cause inflammation and intolerances.
Gluten is a mixture of proteins found in wheat, barley, rye, and some oats and cannot be consumed by celiac disease people. With gluten intolerances on the rise, we made it easy and safe for our clients (gluten intolerant or not) to finish our food by removing it from our menu.
Lactose is a sugar found in most dairy products and is the top ingredient that causes lactose intolerance, increasing over the years. As we grow older, the human body loses its ability to break down lactose, which leads to gastrointestinal discomfort and low-grade inflammation, among other issues.
So with this in mind, we have been able to make swaps for healthier alternatives to dairy products within our meals.
Along with the feel-good aspect of our food, we want our food to taste good too. We continuously improve our menu and products to bring you the best options to fill your fridge weekly.
Eating healthy doesn’t have to be boring; UNREFINED is here to help. Food is a common factor that brings people together, and we are here to build a community of like-minded individuals who strive to better themselves and form a strong connection over good food.
We are more than just a meal prep company; we are a brand that strives to help our customers transform from the inside out.
We are currently working to partner with the best health and wellness brands in Cleveland, OH, to bring our clients more health and life.
