5 Benefits of a Prepared Meal Delivery Service
The year 2020 has been a series of adapting to the constant changes in guidelines and regulations brought on by COVID-19. Those who are working from home are also busy managing the attention and energy of their children - which is enough to make the day feel endless, let alone planning and creating healthy meals for breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
Now more than ever, a prepared meal delivery service that aligns with your family’s health and busy lifestyle is the perfect way to help bring some ease to your day!
Cooking is a fun experience, from finding a recipe you want to try, pickup up the ingredients, to cooking the dish. But sometimes, with a busy schedule, all you want to do is feed your family something tasty and healthy, as easily as possible.
With prepared meal delivery services, all you need to do is order online by building a meal plan with the meals you want to try - or already love. That’s it! There is no need to worry about picking up the meals, as they will be delivered right to your door and any changes can be made online at your convenience.
2. Put time back in your day
You probably have a laundry list of things you need to get done: cleaning the house, walking the dog, playing tag with the kids, and, of course, the actual laundry. Add grocery shopping, cooking, and cleaning up, and that list is exhausting! Take care of almost half your list by simply ordering some of our delicious prepared meals. Just pop them in the microwave, heat, and eat!
3. Discover new dishes and domains
Meals in a busy home most often turn out to be whatever is easiest to whip up and put on the table. However, when it becomes boring and monotonous to always eat the same thing, exploring into new recipes means doing the research, getting the right items, and hoping it tastes good without having tried it before.
By ordering from a selection of rotational menus at Smart Eats, the variety of delicious prepared meals lets you try new dishes without all the extra commitment of creating it yourself.
4. Save Money
It may be surprising, but prepared meal delivery services actually provide better bang for your buck. Often when we go grocery shopping, we end up buying more than we use or we feel inspired to cook a dish outside of our normal meal menu. Fast forward a week later, and you notice a smell and remember the produce or leftovers you had were forgotten about. By using a prepared meal delivery service, you are omitting the chance of over buying groceries, cooking too much, or storing leftover food incorrectly.
Everyone is on a health journey - whatever health looks and feels like to you! The most important aspect is knowing what ingredients you put in your body. Eating takeout regularly is not good for your health in the long run, as there's often excess salt, sugar, and fat in these meals. Although they are great to indulge in every once and a while, they are not a sustainable alternative to cooking.
At Smart Eats, we use locally sourced ingredients and no chemical preservatives in our prepared meals. Each dish is prepared with guidance from our team of chefs and professional nutritionists in Toronto. We provide a breakdown of each dish, outlining the ingredients used, calories calculations, and dietary adherence. Whether it's the look, the ingredients, the calories, or the dietary restrictions that guide you, let your own feel-good lifestyle guide your choices in our meals today!
These are just a few of the benefits you can reap from prepared meal delivery services, but there are benefits in a larger context as well. By ordering from Smart Eats, it helps the environment in the areas of meal preparation, packaging, and delivery.

Stay hungry, stay healthy.
