Don’t make dinner tonight

Don’t make dinner tonight


It’s 4pm, and dinner is fast approaching. Nothing has been defrosted, and the idea of making dinner makes ‘I can’t even’ flash in giant letters in your head. Here are four options for a quick and healthy dinner, take-out style.

Whole Foods

In the fridge section, there are full family meals, with a protein and veggies, as well as a side salad – feeds four people. Great options from full noodle dishes to fried chicken and veggies. I’ll just mention their pies are incredible. Ahem.

Several locations in Vancouver

Urban Fare

Bypass the grocery store bit altogether and hit the cafe area. You could get four portions of their hot food to go, which includes roasts like pork loin, chicken or beef, veggies, and roast or mashed potatoes. Also a fridge full of heat and eat single serve options made in-house, like spaghetti, butter chicken, shepherd’s pie, and more.

The Fish Counter

Spankingly fresh fish, as well as cooking instructions and house-made sauce are on offer here. It’s a wee bit more work than bunging a foil tray in the oven, but it makes it look like you were in the kitchen for an hour, not 20 minutes. If you give up, the hot fish and chips counter is one of the best in the city. Everything is Oceanwise too.
