Why Trust Protein Chefs?

Reviews

Pelle fred

“I’ve been on the program for 2 weeks now going into my 3rd week. I’m doing the KETO diet plan. I’ve lost 12 lbs. in 2 weeks so far. Body fat has dropped at least 4-5% already. The best part is I’ve been on a ton of diets over the years where I prepare my own food, and like most people it doesn’t taste good, it’s bland because your trying to cut out salt, sugars, sauces etc. and after a while you get tired of eating chicken and broccoli. But Protein Chefs, well the name says it all. The food tastes amazing! Better than restaurants. The selection is outstanding, you can eat a different meal every day of the week. It’s not a diet now, It’s a meal plan. Give them a try, you won’t regret it.”

“They are very professional, understanding and accommodating. The meals are extremely delicious, tasty and healthy. I have been ordering from them consistently for over a year and will continue to do so going forward. It has been a significant contributor to my transition to a healthy lifestyle and my workout gains. I have also recommended this service to several of my friends.”

Supporting the Local Ontario Family Farms – Protein Chefs

Supporting the Local Ontario Family Farms – Protein Chefs

No more grocery shopping, cooking and washing dishes! Let our team of highly qualified and talented local Chefs take on that role for you, adding that much time back into your lives so you can focus on more important things.

Supporting the Local Ontario Family Farms – Protein Chefs

At Protein Chefs we are determined to support the local Ontario family farms and that is the reason that we are offering grass fed beef, wild caught sustainable fish and the best quality produce without making a change to our current price point. We support small local Ontario farmers who share the philosophy of raising livestock in a humane and environmentally conscious manner without the use of artificial hormones or antibiotics. We understand the need to eat fresh, healthy meals and how this benefits us long term for example: we only buy from chicken farms that are family run operations in which the chickens are free to roam and enjoy fresh country air with plenty of sunlight.

By joining Protein Chefs community, not only do you invest in yourself, but we invest in you too!

Avoiding Food Wastage

By supporting Protein Chefs, you are contributing towards our society and helping in your own little way to avoid food wastage. Here is how Protein Chefs help reduce Ontario’s food waste:

  • We have order cut off times for our customers to place their weekly orders.
  • The orders are sent to the kitchen; the Chefs calculate exactly how much produce and meats are needed for a delivery (based on the customers orders).
  • This calculation is formatted and sent to the suppliers for commodities that we need.
  • Suppliers send exactly what’s ordered and only fresh ingredients.
  • The meals are cooked as per specifications and recipes, hence there is no food or ingredient wasted.

Our Team does all it takes to make your health their TOP priority. We vouch for our quality and stand true to our work ethics.

Wishing more health from our Protein Chefs family to yours!

Protein Chefs – COVID-19 Outbreak Press Release

Protein Chefs – COVID-19 Outbreak Press Release

What can I do to support my immune system?


A healthy diet rich in fruit and vegetables, protein foods and whole grains is important for a strong immune system as are other healthy lifestyle habits (e.g exercise, not smoking, adequate sleep, managing stress etc).

There are many nutrients that are involved with the normal functioning of the immune system and therefore we encourage eating a variety of nutrient rich healthy foods each day in order to support immune function.

You can find more information on nutrition and healthy eating at unlockfood.ca or Health Canada’s, Canada’s Food Guide.

If you are self-isolating and especially if you have symptoms, it is important to maintain good nutrition and hydration. Make sure you are eating and drinking regularly, even if you have a low appetite.

It makes sense to stock up on non-perishable food items so that you do not need to go shopping if you become sick, but avoid panic buying.

It is easier on the supply chain if people gradually build up their household stores instead of making large-scale purchases all at once. To do this, you can add a few extra items to your grocery cart every time you shop. Good options are easy-to-prepare foods like:

  • dried pasta and canned sauce
  • prepared canned soups
  • canned or frozen vegetables
  • canned beans (like chickpeas, kidney beans and lentils)

It is also a good idea to have extra stores of:

  • pet food
  • toilet paper
  • facial tissue
  • feminine hygiene products
  • diapers (if you have children who use them)

The reason for stocking up on these items is not necessarily because you will need to self-isolate. Having these supplies on hand will ensure you do not need to leave your home at the peak of the outbreak or if you become ill.

Visit the Government of Canada’s website for more information on being prepared.

Can COVID-19 be spread by eating or touching raw fruits and vegetables?

There is no evidence that COVID-19 is spread through eating or touching raw fruits or vegetables. When preparing fresh fruits and vegetables, wash or scrub them under cold, running, potable tap water prior to consumption.

Visit the Government of Canada’s website or local public health authorities like BC Centre for Disease Control or MAPAQ for more information on food safety.

Should I be concerned about storing foods in my cupboard, fridge, or freezer?

COVID-19 is a virus and does not grow. It may survive in foods and on surfaces for a few hours to a few days before it dies off. However, it is not believed that the virus is transmitted by eating contaminated food.

While there are no special precautions needed when storing food, we recommend washing your hands after putting away food you have purchased and before preparing food. If you choose to wipe down food containers, wash your hands before you start and again after you have finished.

Visit the Government of Canada’s website or local public health authorities like BC Centre for Disease Control or MAPAQ for more information on food safety.

Should I continue to breastfeed my baby if I have COVID-19 or suspect I have COVID-19? 

The Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC) have released a statement on COVID-19 in pregnancy. Within this statement, they make the following postpartum and newborn care recommendations:

  • Women who choose to breastfeed should be allowed to do so after appropriate handwashing and while wearing a mask. It is possible that the mother can transmit antibodies to the infant through breastmilk; however, there is limited evidence of this transmission and the potential benefits are unclear.
  • Management in the post-partum period should be guided by a patient-centred discussion about the available evidence and its limitations.
  • We do not recommend universal isolation of the infant from either confirmed or suspected infection in the mother. However, depending on a family’s values and availability of resources they may choose to separate infant from mother until isolation precautions for the mother can be formally discontinued.
  • Women should practice good handwashing before and use of a mask while engaging in infant care. 

Please refer to the SOGC website for up to date information.

The Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health and Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists (United Kingdom) have also issued wide ranging advice relating to breastfeeding COVID-19 / Coronavirus and pregnancy. Within this they make the following recommendations:

“At the moment there is no evidence that the virus can be carried in breastmilk, so it’s felt that the well-recognised benefits of breastfeeding outweigh any potential risks of transmission of coronavirus through breastmilk.
The main risk of breastfeeding is close contact between you and your baby, as you may share infective airborne droplets, leading to infection of the baby after birth.
A discussion about the risks and benefits of breastfeeding should take place between you and your family and your maternity team.
If you choose to breastfeed your baby, the following precautions are recommended:

  • Wash your hands before touching your baby, breast pump or bottles
  • Try and avoid coughing or sneezing on your baby while feeding at the breast;
  • Consider wearing a face mask while breastfeeding, if available
  • Follow recommendations for pump cleaning after each use

If you choose to feed your baby with formula or expressed milk, it is recommended that you follow strict adherence to sterilisation guidelines. If you are expressing breast milk in hospital, a dedicated breast pump should be used.”

This guidance may change as knowledge evolves, so please refer to the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health and Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists website for up to date advice.

You can also visit Unicef’s website for additional information on what parents should know about COVID-19.

How do I find a dietitian? 

It is important to receive information from credible, trustworthy sources during this time. Dietitians are a regulated health profession committed to providing evidence-based advice and information that is tailored to your personal needs and challenges.

There are several ways to connect with a dietitian. When contacting a dietitian, ask if virtual appointments are available.

  1. Your family doctor or specialist may be able to refer you to an outpatient clinic with access to a dietitian. The dietitian in these clinics would be covered, or paid for, by your province.
  2. If you belong to a Family Health Team or Primary Care Network, ask to speak to the dietitian.
  3. Public Health Units and Community Health Centres offer counselling, free programs and workshops with access to a dietitian. Criteria to access these services will depend on the program and organization.
  4. If you receive homecare services, you can call your case manager to see if they can connect you with a dietitian. A physician’s referral is typically not required.
  5. You can also see a dietitian and pay a fee for an appointment. Visit Find a Dietitian to find someone in your neighbourhood and search by postal code, city and/or specialty. Your employee benefits may cover dietitian services. Check your plan today.
  6. If you have diabetes or are at risk for diabetes, you can ask your doctor or self-refer to a publicly funded Diabetes Education Program.
  7. These provinces have Provincial Call Centres* where you can speak with a dietitian at no cost:
    • In British Columbia, call 8-1-1 or visit the website.
    • In Manitoba, call toll free 1-877-830-2892 or 204-788-8248 in Winnipeg, or visit the website.
    • In Ontario, call Telehealth Ontario toll free at 1-866-797-0000.
    • In Newfoundland & Labrador, call 8-1-1 or send an email.
    • In Saskatchewan, contact Eat Well Saskatchewan by phone 1-833-966-5541 or email eatwell@usask.ca

*Availability of dietitian services through some Provincial Call Centres may be limited during COVID-19

If you have specific nutrition needs, it is important that you continue to follow the dietary recommendations made by your dietitian, doctor or nurse practitioner. This may involve asking a family member, friend or neighbour to get you specific foods so you can continue to meet your specific needs. Contact your dietitian, doctor or nurse practitioner by phone or email if you have any serious concerns.

The safety and well-being of our customers and our associates is our top priority.
