About Us

Theory Foods was started with the idea that each of us has our own unique way of eating. We want everyone to be able to consistently and conveniently eat good food that works for them.

We help you eat the way you'd like to eat. We offer ready-to-eat meal plans and healthy, freshly-prepared catering that has been carefully crafted from top restaurants and food purveyors in San Francisco. For meal plans, our mission is to help you easily enjoy your favorite foods within the framework of your own dietary theory, without having to think of the recipes, source the ingredients, or prepare the meals yourself. You're provided with a variety of nutritious fully-cooked meals and snacks that will carry you through two to three full days. 

Each meal plan can be personalized and put together for you with food and beverages that you select based on how you'd like to eat. You may be wanting to try a certain diet for a couple of weeks, or you simply want to eat well consistently. You'll be able to have food to enjoy based on your own unique preferences, made with the highest quality ingredients and created by top local food partners. All you have to do is heat your meals as needed and enjoy. 

We also offer healthy catering from our restaurant partners with no markup on prices, nor fees. Our aim is to help you and your teams eat well and thrive.
