Earlier this month I told you about Becel Canada's initiative to spread the word to moms everywhere to enlighten and encourage each other to take the time to take care of themselves. 

To help me take time out for myself, Becel Canada gave me three nights of heart healthy meals courtesy of The Red Apron and the best part: NO COOKING, which meant more time for me to enjoy the dinners with my family. 

The Red Apron is a food delivery service from Ottawa! They are located close to the downtown core but have a large delivery area. They prepare fresh, healthy, hearty meals to enjoy and you can have them delivered right to your house. All you have to do is heat them up! How convenient  They offer a different menu every week on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays plus you can order for just one day or on certain days, it all depends on your needs or what's on the menu! 

Not your everyday meals, our menu for the week was quite delicious!

On Tuesday, February 12thCheese Ravioli with Pomodoro Sauce, Pizzetta with Salsa Verde, Sundried Tomatoes & Goat Cheese, Green Salad with Marinated Fennel, Capers & Orange. 

On Wednesday, February 13thSlow Roasted Lamb with Feta, Wild & Brown Rice with Chickpeas, Mint & Apple Cider Vinaigrette Shakshuka - Braised Eggplant, Zucchini, Tomatoes & Peppers with Oregano & Pine Nuts.

On Thursday, February 14th (Valentine's Day!)Breast of Chicken with Balsamic Glaze, Pear & Walnut Compote Mashed Yukon Golds with Organic 'Le Coprin' Mushrooms and Braised Winter Greens Sauté of Green Beans with Fennel, 'True Loaf' Olive Baguette, Passion Fruit Panna Cotta.

Each day had something good to serve up, a great way for us to enjoy a great sit-down meal together and also try new foods! Being a busy mom of three I typically wouldn't cook such elaborate meals for every day eating but this was a delicious treat! 

I definitely would recommend The Red Apron if you are having a get together or just want a nice sit down without the cooking! The service is spectacular (not to mention the delivery guy came early two out of the three days!) and the food is really good! 

The only thing that would really make this service better is if they also sent someone over to wash the dishes but hey we can't have it all! :) 

If you live in the Ottawa area or are visiting soon and need some good food check out what The Red Apron is all about by visiting their website www.redapron.ca, like them on facebook and follow their new Twitter account @redapronyummm

  1. Ooooh! Sounds like a pretty amazing 3 day menu! :-)

    There certainly is a real treat in having someone else cook for you!
