Wondering what is a meal kit and if you should be ordering them?

Enjoy fresh, healthy meal options catered to your specific dietary preference and delivered straight to your door. A meal kit offers a variety of meal styles, pricing plans, and delivery options that takes the stress out of having to decide and cook 365 dinner meals per year. 

Because let’s face it, who has time for that

What Does a Meal Kit Include?

Meal delivery services offer a wide variety of pre-portioned food items that can be customized to fit most dietary preferences. While traditionally these kits were intended for dinner only, there are now services that offer breakfast, lunch, dinner, and dessert options up to six days a week. 

For the busy consumer, that can equate to 24 healthy, fresh, and ready-made meals per week.

Each kit contains fresh ingredients, packaged in sustainable and recyclable materials that extend the shelf life of your meals up to six days with proper refrigeration. Choose from two styles of meal plan services:

  • Fully cooked meals vacuum sealed for freshness, which only requires reheating.
  • An easy-to-follow recipe with all necessary pre-portioned ingredients to create fast, family-friendly, and delicious meals.

With a meal kit, no longer do you have to rely on takeaway or fast food options for quick and easy dinner solutions. Instead of greasy takeout (or microwave dinners) you can have sumptuous preservative-free meals.

What Is a Meal Kit Good For?

Life has become increasingly busy, leaving little time for grocery shopping and even less time to devote to daily home cooking. Ready-made meal kits have increased in popularity and given busy consumers a more affordable, convenient, and healthful option over restaurants and fast food.

Five Benefits of Getting a Meal Kit Subscription

What Do You Get With a Meal Kit?

1. Convenience

Life is busy, with ever-increasing demands for your time. A meal kit delivery service offers quick and easy options for delicious dinners that shift the burden of getting a meal on the table off of your shoulders. Enjoy premium food made with healthy, non-GMO ingredients delivered straight to your door. 

2. Food Variety

Coming up with new and exciting recipes for dinner, seven days a week, 52 weeks a year, can take a lot of time. Then, once a recipe has been found, there’s planning and shopping for ingredients, meal prepping, and finally cooking. 

Ready-made meals from Protein Chef allow you to choose various foods from several food categories that you may not have experienced before. Without the worry of buying whole ingredients, you’ll be able to explore new recipes and try fresh foods stress-free.

3. Food Quality

Since most weight loss and fitness plans require quality over quantity, you want to ensure the food consumed is fresh, healthful, and portion controlled. A subscription service is the best way to maximize health quality of food without sacrificing taste. 

Enjoy a variety of foods, fit for most dietary needs, that are all natural, non-GMO, and MSG-free. Fish and seafood are sustainable, beef is made from 100% grass fed cows, and there are never any hormone or antibiotic additives. Take pride that with your subscription, you’re supporting local farms that provide the highest quality foods for your meals. 

4. A Healthy Lifestyle

There are many reasons why you may choose a specific dietary plan, including religious or cultural reasons, health management, allergies, or reaching weight loss and fitness goals. With a meal plan, you’ll get to experience flavorful choices that keep you in line with your dietary needs. Don’t settle for bland food because you can’t find an alternative when meal plans are readily available. 

Meal plans can also be a great way to reach your weight loss and fitness goals. Not everyone’s body responds well to a Keto plan, Paleo, or vegan meal, and plant-based diets. A meal subscription plan allows you to try new lifestyle choices to find the one that works best for your body. 

5. Sustainability

What Is a Meal Kit Good For?

Canadians throw away approximately three million tonnes of plastic waste each year, while only nine percent of plastic is recycled. A meal kit provides delicious food with a minimal amount of plastics to throw away each meal. Some meal plan services go as far as to provide packaging with 100% recyclable materials and containers. You get a great meal, without the unnecessary plastic clogging up the landfill and little to no food waste. 

Food waste is a huge problem facing our society. Recent studies estimate that almost 2.2 million tonnes of edible food are wasted per year in Canada, costing consumers nearly $17 billion. Since meal plans either send the entire meal already prepared or portion-controlled ingredients, there is little to no food waste. Carefully controlled portions can save your household hundreds if not thousands of dollars per year in wasted food.

Meal kit services, like Protein Chefs, are a great way to cut down on the number of plastics, packaging, and food tossed into the trash. With pre-portioned meals, packaged in sustainable materials there should be little to throw away each night.
