Where to get healthy pre-made meals for busy families

The one thing I hear from moms who work outside of the home is that there isn’t enough time to make a good meal for their family by the time they get home from work. When this is the case, convenience takes over and nutrition goes downhill. There are a few businesses that have stepped-up to solve this issue. Here are four options.

Fresh City Farms

Located at Downsview Park (see beautiful photo above), Fresh City Farms is considered Canada’s commercial city farm where they organically grow on six acres of land and in a greenhouse. Fresh City will not only deliver farm-fresh organic produce to your door, but they have also taken a step into offering recipe bags that contain pre-portioned ingredients so you just have to cook and serve. There’s also a variety of pre-made salads and smoothies which are great for lunches on the go.

Green Zebra Kitchen

If you prefer plant-based and gluten-free meals, Green Zebra is a fantastic option for busy families. Each week, Green Zebra creates a new menu with three main dishes and three side dishes. You can order a large or small plan depending on the amount of food you need, or you can order a la carte. The bonus here again is that the food is delivered to your door. The food is top-quality and there’s always something different to entice your taste buds. 

Meal Angels

There’s no doubt that it takes time to cook a truly nutritious meal especially when you’re a working parent. Meal Angels was created in 2015 to help busy people eat to their optimum health and delivers ‘Delicious Healthy Meals that Heal’ every week. Every order supplies a full week of ready-to-eat, highly-nutritious breakfasts, lunches and dinners. One order feeds two people.
