There are a number of services in Ottawa that will deliver prepared dinners to your door. The following services use local, organic food whenever possible. Check them out, I think you’ll be surprised at the prices which are less than eating a meal at a restaurant.
Red Apron http://www.redapron.ca
They will deliver fresh dinners to you Tuesday, Wednesday, and/or Thursday at home or work late afternoon, or you can pick up at their shop on your way home. You can stock up on freezer meals anytime – great option for singles or for lunches at work!
Scratch Kitchen http://scratchkitchen.com
They list a number of their meals that are “free of” certain allergens. Plenty of choice for dairy-free, lactose-free, soy-free, and gluten-free. They also have kids meals and side dishes. You can get single portions or family sized.
