Zest Express “Lite”

After years of “marinating” on this concept and in response to dozens of customer requests, we’re happy to announce a trial run of Zest Express Lite! This will be a lighter version of our traditional “comfort food” Zest Express meal service in several ways:

  • Smaller portion sizes.
  • Our proteins will typically be grilled, baked or roasted.
  • We will enhance our entrees with lighter sauces or flavorful toppings rather than the creamy sauces we love at Zest Express.
  • We will reduce or eliminate battered and breaded selections.
  • We will integrate “smarter” carbs such as whole wheat pasta, brown rice, beans, etc.
  • We will cut back our use of salt. While we’re not certifying anything as “low sodium,” we will mindfully cut back on it and skip the brining process we like for certain dishes.
  • In fact, we are not in a position to “certify” anything (low fat, low cal, low carb, low sodium, etc.). However, our goal is to offer lighter fare by cutting out some of our favorite culinary vices!
  • Meals will be available on Wednesday for pick-up at the Zest Catering Kitchen or for delivery (to select areas).

    What they are saying about Zest! Express

    I am a hard working woman, wife and mother of 3. I sincerely do not know what I would do without Fay and Zest Express. She is my lifesaver on a weekly basis! Not only is the food absolutely AMAZING and DELICIOUS, but packaged so you can easily reheat and serve to the family. Picking up on my way home on Monday’s makes that Monday frown turn upside-down. Try her once and I promise you will be a believer, too!

    My family and I love the convenience and delicious food Zest Express prepares, without fail every week. I am super picky about the quality of ingredients and menu selections. Fay never disappoints! Everything we have ordered is so flavorful and fresh. In addition to meals for my family, I also order meals every week for my elderly parents who are disabled and not able to cook for themselves. Fay delivers the meals right to their doorstep and they love the dinners she prepares. The portions are very generous and they always have left-overs for lunch the next day. I feel so happy knowing they are eating healthy, delicious clean food-not frozen food or take-out! Thank you Fay! You have given us the gift of family around the table sharing a meal-without the shopping, the preparation or the clean-up! 🙂
