I love to cook but, there are definitely some days where I just don’t have the time or the desire to figure out what to eat. I’ve recently stumbled-upon Made Foods, a local Calgary company offering restaurant worthy meals, to-go! When I find a great new company, especially a local one, I have to talk about it! This service is really great because you are able to pick-up a variety of pre-made (fresh) meals from one of their eight Calgary and area locations and, they’re not all downtown! They are not only a local company but they source their ingredients locally as well. I absolutely love everything this company stands for.
So far, I have tried the Quinoa Crusted Chicken, Squishy Squash Mac & Cheese and the Hummus Chicken Wrap, plus their Made Honeyed Apple Smoothie. Everything I’ve tried so far has been fresh and delicious. I was so happy I was able to try their Squishy Squash Mac & Cheese because I think it is quite the popular dish (it’s actually on the kids menu).
The smoothie was tasty but a little chunky and not so smooth, but it could have been the particular bottle and I would be willing to try it again to see if there was a difference because I did enjoy the flavour.
One of the great things about Made Foods is that they deliver! YES, I KNOW RIGHT!? Healthy food right to your doorstep! When I first discovered Made I had a few thoughts about how it could be used and, it really is for anyone! If you are having a dinner party, it would easily suffice to buy four of the same entrees, or, if you have different dietary requirements for your guests you could select a few different entrees. It is also great for busy families and even elderly people, like my grandma, who might not be able to get to the grocery store or able to easily make healthy meals.
The price point isn’t terrible. It is a bit pricey but, if you look at what ingredients go into each meal, it makes sense and it’s probably not much different than if you were to make these meals yourself. As a family, I won’t be able to regularly purchase from here but, if in a pinch, or for a treat, they have awesome options!
In addition to being local, having great ingredients and being fairly affordable, Made also offers a points program. 2o points gets you a free meal and each meal you purchase is worth two points with other items being worth one point.
I am thrilled to have a great local company supplying local, healthy and most importantly, TASTY meals!
