As a woman with a lot on her plate, every day is an adventure – and planning out organized and healthy meals can be a nightmare. While I don’t have kids (yet), I do have a man who, like most men, is a big kid and needs some extra care. (Shh… That never came out of my mouth.) Add to that the gym, running a business, a busy social schedule and then just day-to-day “stuff,” life is pretty hectic! I certainly know I’m not alone, and most people’s schedules are like mine – or worse.
Enter Fresh Canteen, an amazingly convenient grocery delivery service in Toronto. For anyone who loves to cook but finds it hard to get to the grocery store for fresh ingredients, Fresh Canteen will become your new indulgence – without breaking the bank.
At $12.50 per portion, the Fresh Canteen offerings include healthy, fresh ingredients and innovative recipes that change weekly. Once you’ve ordered your recipe choices, the meal kits are delivered to your door the following week, and even include the nutritional breakdown for those of us watching our waists. Speaking of waste (see what I did there?), because each recipe is broken down into exact portion sizes, you won’t be throwing out unused ingredients ever again.
The deal is good – real good – so here are five fabulous reasons why you should try Fresh Canteen ASAP.
Learn to cook (& eat) like a king (or queen)
Learning how to be cool in the kitchen? Fresh Canteen kills two birds with one stone by creating a personalized cooking lesson through beautifully illustrated step-by-step recipe cards and providing you and your date with a delicious dinner. No need to tell anyone; with their unique and creative recipes rotating weekly, it’s truly a win-win.
If you’re anything like me and try to do the week’s groceries on Sunday but then end up out for dinner most nights, the money wasted on groceries gone bad can be hair-raising. The convenience of Fresh Canteen portion controlling your groceries, while only spending $12.50 per serving, is like your own personal shopper. Even if you get four meals and multiple portions delivered weekly, you’re spending less than you would on a Sunday at Loblaws. Trust me. Or just do the math.
Cooking minus the prep
For anyone who enjoys cooking but hates the prep, Fresh Canteen takes all the groundwork out so you’re left with just the joy of cooking (except doing the dishes, of course). Delivered right to your door in a refrigerated box, the ingredients are already pre-portioned and ready to go, so all you have to do is unpack, pour yourself a glass of vino and start chef-ing!
Discover your inner epicurean
Perhaps trying new things isn’t something you would do at home in the kitchen; sometimes there are just too many ingredients to for homemade curry or Pad Thai. But with Fresh Canteen, you can choose to be adventurous with meal kits like jerk chicken or vietnamese noodle salad with shrimp, or even vegetarian creations like cauliflower fritters or green pea timbales. Yes, the recipes are no joke and most take less than 40 minutes to make. Even you can do it!
Never eat the same thing twice
Creativity in the kitchen can be tough – especially when there are a million other things at the front of your mind. With Fresh Canteen, it’s rare that you – or your better half – will be eating the same thing twice. The rotating menu means you can enjoy a variety of meals so your taste buds are always dancing. On the other hand, if you happen to love one of the menu options, order it twice – all meals are available for two weeks at a time!
