How We See It – The Ingredients and The Dietary Guidelines
Locally Seasoned’s meals are designed to provide convenient healthful options with minimally processed ingredients. We strive to bring you the freshest possible ingredients, source as locally as possible from as many local farms as possible and maintain the integrity of the food we serve. We understand how hard it is to find food you can trust. We live this every day and we get it.
Our commercial kitchen is used for all food preparation including foods that contain common allergens (gluten, eggs, dairy, soy, nuts and peanuts). Nutritional analysis and ingredients for each recipe are provided. Individuals with severe allergies should be aware of the possibility of airborne cross-contaminants and are encouraged to contact us with any specific questions regarding ingredients listed on the label.
Anyone working with their doctor who would benefit from diet modification is advised to work closely with a registered dietitian to develop an individual meal plan. We are not attempting to provide medical nutritional advice, just food choices that might be compatible with your needs.
