About

The Real Good Life technically started in September of 2016 when owner Maggie Joos worked out of a church kitchen to create delicious and nutritious family-friendly food for friends and neighbors around town. But in reality, this business started a long time ago.

See, we don't know about you, but we have some great memories around food. When all else might have been a little sideways, we can still turn to those memories of Saturday mornings making French Toast with dad or Thanksgivings spent assisting mom. You may remember that first taste of chocolate chip cookie dough when baking with grandma or the pride on his face the first time the man who is now your husband made you dinner.

To us, food equals comfort, home, a place of safety. Which is all well and good, but who has the time to prepare all that nonsense? That's where we come in.

Please take us up on the offer to deliver food straight to your door or at least do the dirty work of thinking up something new and you just get to the table. Spend time with your family, your spouse, or a good book or passion project.

The meal delivery service is currently available to anyone within 15 miles of Wauwatosa, WI. The menu changes every week and every dish is available in one-, two-, four-, and six-serving portions. You can order as much or as little as you want as long as you hit a $40 minimum. No subscription is required, but we do offer them for those that want to set it and forget it. You'll enjoy meals that just need to be reheated in the microwave or oven served in sturdy packaging that can be recycled.

Our meal planner subscription service gives you the opportunity to put your unique spin on the weekly menu. With this subscription, you will receive three meal recipes per week plus at least one snack or extra. Additionally, we'll give you the grocery list and all the nutritional information. For an added bonus, we'll give you plently of modifications to truly make it your own.

Finally, consider our corporate lunch program. Just because you find yourself trapped at your desk doesn't mean you should skip a healthy and nutritious lunch. How else will you tackle that next big project?!? Let us provide boxed lunches to you or your whole team. Together, we'll get the job done.

When you partner with The Real Good Life, you automatically become a part of our community. We love working with and for our friends! We're so glad to consider you in that group.

What is #TheRealGoodLife?

We’re not too sugary. We’re not too sad. We’re a little happy and a lot of satisfied. Life is mostly (usually, sometimes, not often…) good and we’re here to celebrate the little things. We want to see the pictures of your beautiful birthday cake (with the pile of dishes in the background). The perfectly curated outfit for date night (and the wine stain that happened in the first five minutes.) The happy family all smiling for the camera (with the honest number of how many pictures and M&M bribes it took to get there.)

In short, we want to see the good life. The real life. The REAL good life.

We’ve got our version but would love to see yours. If you’d like to submit an article about #therealgoodlife, shoot us a note. Otherwise, just use #therealgoodlife to tag your thoughts or images on Instagram.

Life is real. Life is good.
