Just Right Eating to open in Ironworks

EDWARDSVILLE — Continuing the trend of made-to-order, healthy meals, Just Right Eating (JRE) plans to open its second Illinois location next month.

The company, based in Springfield, plans to open in the Ironworks Plaza on Jan. 4, next to Global Brew.

Stephanie Johnson, an Edwardsville native, opened this concept in January of 2011 (after several years of putting together the logistics) in a 400-square-foot facility located in Taylorville. Johnson is a lifetime pursuer of health and wellness.

She holds a master’s degree in exercise physiology, is a nutritionist and author of “Just Right Eating.” The concept is designed to offer all products and services to help individuals eat better. Just Right Eating carries a selection of goods that Johnson has carefully chosen and created that she stands by and recommends.

Just Right Eating offers six different meal plans and grab n’ go items in the Edwardsville location. Customers can sign up online or come into the store. At the time of sign up, they choose whether they want to have it delivered or picked up at the store.

With each meal plan, you have the option to receive the default menu or to go online and create your own menu with more than 70 items a week from which to choose, some with customizations. Products include snacks, entrees, breakfast and desserts. All items are healthy, balanced, portioned, fresh and nutritionally dense. JRE offers gluten-free, vegetarian, pescatarian and other meal types.

JRE’s mission is to offer products and services to help individuals achieve their goals – weight loss, healthy eating, athletic performance, and/or prevent/manage disease by offering meals that include a balance of lean protein, heathy fat, complex carbs, sodium appropriate, and natural sugar.

JRE follows the lead of Susan Smith’s Plan, Shop, Live facility that opened in Maryville in late July. Like Johnson, Smith started putting together meals in her kitchen then borrowing others’ facilities in Maryville and Collinsville before opening her own storefront.
