Cooking with Alison

Exclusive Deal for Clean Meals Subscription (Healthy Meals Delivered to Your Door within Ontario, Canada)

In Uncategorized on July 12, 2018 at pm

I’m excited to share an exclusive Cooking with Alison discount code for! Clean Meals is a subscription service that delivers fresh, healthy, and pre-cooked, meals from Ottawa to Windsor, Ontario. (Service to Quebec is in the works!) The menu changes every week and they work for dietary restrictions (e.g. vegan, halal, etc.). This is the perfect gift for someone that has just had a baby, someone that’s too busy to cook, people with difficulties getting groceries and/or cooking, and whole families that want to live well. The individual meals contain a protein (vegan options available) and at least one side (e.g. vegetables, rice, whole-wheat grains). They come vacuum sealed and just need to be microwaved for a minute and a half before eating/serving. The meals are full of fibre, so if you eat mindfully, they are definitely filling.

Clean Meals has been crucial to my life. Lately, I purchased a house, packed most of my belongings, moved out temporarily, sold my condo, and packed some more, all while working 2 jobs and trying to take care of my family. Oh and I’m working on losing a few pounds so that I can fit into my best woman dress (for my best friend’s upcoming wedding). See below for a sample menu of one week’s worth of meals.

Marc Mclean of Uncle Joe’s Jerk was kind enough to share his Jamaican curry mutton or goat recipe with us! Uncle Joe’s Jerk serves Jamaican food at the Well Street Market in Hackney East London, England every Saturday from 10:30 am to 4 pm. Uncle Joe’s Jerk adds a modern twist to authentic Jamaican recipes that have been passed down in the family. All of the dishes are made from scratch using natural ingredients. Be sure to try their Jerk Chicken, which is seasoned with sweet and savoury spices and a delicious fruit infused sauce that is one of a kind – a mixture of old school Jamaica and sunny Los Angeles, while cooked by a Londoner.

Toronto Coffee & Tea Expo

Toronto’s first annual Coffee & Tea Expo will be held this weekend, April 8-9, 2017! It will take place at The Glass Factory, 99 Sudbury Street. I LOVE coffee and sample it everywhere I go, so I’m sure you can imagine how excited I will be to attend the event and provide social media coverage!

At the expo, you’ll be able to try free drink samples, purchase coffee beans and tea leaves, experience the culture and new trends, and learn new recipes, tips, and tricks. I am most excited for the Best Coffee Competition!
