Dinner stress? Canadian meal kits are here to help!
Have you ever stood just staring into your fridge wondering, “what can I make for dinner?” before you quickly close the door and reach for your favourite take-out menu? It happens all the time! You’re tired, you’re pressed for time, or you haven’t made it to the store this week, all of these challenges can add stress to the dinner hour.
This is where meal kits come in!
Meal kits are a great choice for people looking to create quick, easy, and delicious meals at home without a lot of fuss.
Excellent for both novice and more seasoned cooks, there are meals for everyone.
Some of the larger companies also cater to various diets and offer meal versions that incorporate vegetarian, gluten-free, and keto diets.
Most meal kits work on a subscription basis, where you sign up and receive a box of meals to prepare each week on your doorstep. The unique feature of most kits is that you receive the majority of the ingredients to prepare the meals, (minus some staple ingredients like salt, pepper, and oil), in pre-portioned packages. This means no food waste and no having to hunt down unusual ingredients to prepare your creations. Typically, each meal also comes with a recipe card that shows you step-by-step how to create your meals at home.
One of the more exciting benefits of using a meal kit service is the opportunity to try out new recipes and ingredients you might not have enjoyed before. Whether you are looking for more traditional meals or wanting to try something out of your comfort zone, you can find it all when using meal kits!
