Dislike meal prepping? 5 ways to get around it in Vancouver

Mar 13 2019, 5:04 pm

Hands up if you’ve ordered takeout for dinner more than three times this week. Or if you’ve gone and eaten an entire packet of Oreos as a substitute for dinner.

Adulting is hard.

Eating healthy should be a priority for everyone, but let’s be honest — sometimes after a long day at work you just can’t be bothered going to get groceries, let alone prep all the ingredients to cook yourself a proper meal.

If you’re craving a home-cooked meal and some nutrition, there are plenty of meal kit delivery services around Vancouver that will satisfy your hunger pangs! Here are our top picks.
