THE READY STEADY GLOW STORY
After experiencing first-hand the benefits of a holistic approach to lifestyle incorporating wholesome food, yoga and meditation, Yasmina and Holly wanted to create an easy service so that others – particularly those short on time, knowledge or support – could also reap the benefits of an integrated wellbeing experience.
Understanding the stresses and pressures of a busy life, having struggled with mental health issues including anxiety, stress, and eating disorders for several years, they sought out lifestyle improvements to aid their journey to recovery. This is the reason the packages not only contain healthy meals but also meditation, yoga, a playlist and essential oils.
More recently, as friends started to have babies and noticing that they didn’t even have time to shower, let alone cook wholesome food, an idea developed to create bespoke package options to provide new mums with the easy-to-prepare, nourishing, meals that they need, along with post-natal yoga and aromatherapy oils for recovery. This then progressed into a wide range of packages to meet a variety of needs, including ‘get well soon’, ‘thank you’ ‘pregnancy’, ‘new home’ and ‘self-care’.
We use only the freshest, best quality ingredients, that have been sustainably sourced. Our meals are designed to provide you with all of the key nutrients, and are free from any added preservatives, refined sugar, salt and saturated fats.
All of our packaging is recycled, recyclable or compostable. Our food trays are made from 100% recyclable paper-board, offering a more eco-friendly alternative to plastic. The accompanying postcard is made from recycled card, which is also 100% recyclable.
We use insulating pouches made from recycled fibres from a textile factory and re-usable gel ice packs.
Our delivery boxes are tough enough to re-use should you wish and are widely recyclable.
All of our dishes are delivered frozen, meaning you can store them in the freezer until you are ready to eat them, saving food wastage.
We are proud supporters of the Felix Project, which collects surplus food from suppliers and delivers it to charities and schools that provide food to people in need (Did you know that each year the UK generates 1.9 million tonnes of food waste that could have been eaten, yet 2 million people in the UK cannot afford to eat regularly?) For every one of our packages you buy, £4 of food is saved for those that need it.
All of our beautiful new baby clothes and gifts are sourced from the incredible From Babies with Love, with all profits going to orphaned and abandoned children around the world.
All of our candles and bath and body products are vegan and made with 100% natural ingredients. Each product has been thoughtfully created and gently fragranced with a blend of aromatherapy oils, designed to complement the Ready Steady Glow experience.
Our beautiful baby products, created by the fantastic From Babies with Love, and made from luxuriously soft certified organic cotton.
Our delicious Champagne – the ideal add-on for a celebratory gift – is organically grown and produced by a small family owned estate.
