How Meal Prep Services Work

This blog post is about to make your life a whole lot easier. If you find yourself being busy all the time with no time to prepare healthy meals before or after work, you need to read this.

Dirty Dishes

Coming back from work you’re exhausted, and the last thing you want to think about is coming home and cooking. Most people want to use those few hours left in their day as leisure time to wind down, relax and rejuvenate. Others might want to use that extra time to work on side projects and hobbies.

Many people in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area are now taking advantage of meal preparation services as a quick and easy alternative. Saving people time from cooking, eliminating having to wash dishes and doing groceries! Its also making them healthier and more productive at work and allowing them to get more leisure time in with friends and family.

In this blog post, we’ll share with you exactly how meal prep services work so you can quickly and easily incorporate it into your lifestyle. We’ll break down everything from the different type of meal prep services that exist, how to go about selecting your meals, what portion size and pricing is right for you, and the best part, how delivery works.

Step 1: Selecting a Meal Prep Service

There are many meal prep services but not every meal prep service is the best fit for you. There's everything from vegan, paleo diet, low-carb diet, weight loss, weight maintenance services and more. Be sure to check that the meal prep service company you select fits with your nutrition goals.

If delivery dates are important to you, you might want to look into which meal prep companies deliver on the days of the week you prefer. If you're tight on a budget, you may want to compare prices to see which meal prep company fits within your budget.

Some meal prep service companies have gluten-free, vegan, nut-free, and halal options. Always check with the company if they can make accommodations according to your dietary needs or restrictions. For halal options, you can always check with the company’s supplier to confirm that they are serving halal meat.

The quality of the meals differ for each company as well, so you may want to try out a few companies to see which best fits your tastes and preferences. MealFix Canada is a fast-growing meal prep service that caters to anybody looking for a healthy and affordable option. MealFix Canada is offering 20% off their first order so you can get started with their promo code PREP20.

Step 2: Portion Size, Nutritional Facts, and Allergens

You'll want to check portion sizes to ensure meals are the right size for your daily needs. Most meal prep companies may increase portion sizes or protein options, and reduce or completely remove carbs. Some meal prep services will provide you with a portion size that's much smaller or larger than advertised, so always double check the company’s website to make sure it meets your portion requirements.

Nutritional values are usually located at the front or back of the packaging. If its not listed on the packaging you should be able to find it on the companies website, usually under the menu page.

Step 3: Variety In Meals

You don't want to be eating the same meals all the time, do you? You’re probably wondering how often the menu changes? Wondering which proteins are offered? Or if there are different options to choose from versus a set or rotating menu?

Some companies change their menu every 2-4 weeks, and some rotate between their menu every other week. Some companies also have a set menu containing pork, beef, and seafood, whereas others give you the flexibility to choose the type of proteins you want.

If you're looking to add variety to your diet, you can check the company’s website for the dietary options or ask how often they change their menu.

MealFix Meal Packages

Step 4: Pricing

Meal prep companies can range in pricing for individual meals and packages, so it’s important to check which meal prep company fits within your budget. Compare your weekly grocery bill to the cost of the meal delivery service and don’t forget to factor in the price of the convenience of receiving premade gourmet meals to ensure the meal prep service is worth it for you! Typically, the per meal price goes down the more meals you order.

Many meal prep companies are subscription-based which means you're automatically billed weekly for utilizing their services each week.

MealFix Canada is an option that gives customers the ability to either place a one-time order or sign up for a weekly subscription depending on their week-to-week needs.

It is also essential to research delivery fees. Some companies charge per order and some charge for each delivery, which can be up to two or three times per week. Delivery fees for each delivery throughout the week can add up and be a hefty price to pay on a weekly basis.

Step 5: Selecting your Meals

When selecting your meals choose the package that fits your weekly needs. Try a week’s worth of meals to get the full meal prep service experience. There’s nothing better than coming home after a long day to a premade, proportioned meal that is ready to eat. MealFix Canada offers a 7 meal, 10, meal, and 14 meal package as well as a 5 meal breakfast package.

If you’re looking to test out the meal service or purchase the smallest amount of meals for the week the 7 meal plan is the best option. If you're looking for both lunch and dinner for weekdays only, you’ll want to do the 10 meal package. If you're super busy and looking for both lunch and dinner for an entire week, you 'll want to try the 14 meal option, and if you need a bit of a top up with breakfast and snacks you can add either the breakfast package or individual items to your meals.

Step 6: Delivery

Deliveries are typically split into two batches with most companies delivering on either Sunday and Wednesday or Monday and Thursday.

There is usually a weekly order deadline to submit your order so that meal prep companies can get the ingredients they need to prepare your meals on time for delivery.

It’s essential to check the dates of delivery that fit with your routine. Monday and Thursday delivery can be problematic. Monday is a hectic day of the week when you need your meals the most. Some companies deliver on Monday evenings which can be highly inconvenient because you may need lunch or dinner for that day. On Thursday you get the other half of your order which you're supposed to consume over Friday and the weekend, however, it’s a lot harder to stick to meal prepped meals with family and social events ramping up.
