It’s 3:23 in the afternoon and you haven’t eaten anything since 7:00 this morning. Your stomach might be hating you, and you’re definitely fading, but you have ZERO time to run out and grab a late lunch, and there’s no way you’re resorting to the vending machine adjacent to the employee washroom.
Cursing yourself, you attempt to focus on finishing your work, while making a mental note (that you’ll almost certainly forget, because you can’t think straight) to never forget to bring lunch to the office again. (And also to go grocery shopping, so that it’s possible in the first place.)
Fun times. And yet, we’ve all done it. A lot. Aside from bringing a bagged lunch or scheduling time in your hectic day to go out and get it, what other options are there?
What about ordering a healthy, pre-prepared lunch for yourself on Sunday, for every single day this week? OR, you could schedule dinners to come to your door, so the grocery store can remain a distant memory, and at the very least, you don’t have to leave work thinking about what to make for dinner.
One Life Healthy Cuisine. I had the pleasure of meeting the creator of this new Vancouver business and sampling a lunch menu item a couple of months ago. I have to admit, I’ve been looking for an excuse to order from here since then!
I had the Hummus, Yam, and Quinoa Wrap, which was insanely delicious. All of the menu items have nutrition information, including fat grams, protein, carbs, and calories. You can order a day ahead and this service will deliver to your home or office, and provide re-useable containers, which you can return to help keep the company environmentally friendly.
There’s no prep, and no cleanup necessary. Investigate further at https://www.onelifehealthycuisine.com.
Freshery. This food prep and delivery service is brand spanking new to Vancouver—coming April 2015! No delivery charges, and 30 grams of protein. That’s all you need to remember.
Their animal products are free-range, and hormone and antibiotic-free. Just like One Life Healthy Cuisine, there is no shopping, prep, or cleanup necessary. Visit http://freshery.co for more details.
Fresh Prep Vancouver. This last one is a little different from the first two.
Fresh Prep Vancouver provides meals delivered to your door that you can prepare yourself in under 30 minutes. There’s no shopping necessary, and just as with the other two services above, healthy options are emphasized. You can order ahead of time and select a delivery date, just like the others.
