Fresh Canteen

Woah, guys I know it’s been WAY too long since I’ve posted but between Boyfriend, family visits, work and a nasty cold I’ve barely had time between coughing fits to breath let alone blog. But I’m back now.

Last night Boyfriend and I tried Fresh Canteen for dinner; Fresh Canteen is a service located in Toronto that allows you to pick a delicious healthy meal online, the ingredients and recipe are then delivered to you on the following Tuesday between 12 – 8PM in a refrigerated box, it’s like takeout only WAY better and you cook it yourself.  We decided on a Thai red curry beef, naturally I cooked because Boyfriend should only ever be allowed to make cereal, the prep took about 15 minutes and the cooking was done in about 25 minutes so we were sitting and eating within 45 minutes of getting home – about the same amount of time (minus arguments about what to order) as if we’d called for takeout.

For two adults with busy, demanding and often infuriating jobs Fresh Canteen is basically the best thing since Twitter; more often than we’d like to admit Boyfriend and I end up eating out at a restaurant or ordering take out because it’s easier than cooking at home but you can’t say that when someone brings the food to you. If you’re constantly saying that you’re, “Too busy,” Fresh Canteen is definitely for you.

Next week’s selections include lamb kofta with Greek yogurt, cider glazed pork chops and a tempeh waldorf salad among several others that you should definitely check out; the price for 2 people is around $30 a meal which is basically the price of a cardboard tasting pizza for two and half the price of ordering Chinese food that tastes almost nothing like the food it’s ‘inspired’ by.

So this week, why not skip the long lines at the Sobeys Urban Fresh, put down your take out menus and order something that feels good, tastes good and costs less?

    Thanks Shannon. Going to give them a try and see what it’s like. Need to get some new tupperware, as I think I’ll make myself the guinea pig (for my cooking) and save the rest for the next day.
