Fall is the perfect time to reconnect with your health plan. A chance to recharge your batteries and find new healthy lifestyle solutions that will enable you more time to nourish from the inside out. Time is money and life is hectic which means the first thing to suffer when we are busy and running on empty is our nutrition. We know the right nutritional choices but precious time and money to spend on shopping, cooking and prepping healthy meals can be tricky with busy schedules. In my personal opinion, my time-off is valuable and should be spent chasing adventures and playing outdoors, not in the kitchen.
Lo and behold, I recently discovered that Vital Supply Co, a Vancouver based meal preparation company offers affordable, convenient, healthy options for adventure guys and gals on the go. Bottom line, that means more mountain and trail time. Hallelujah!
I just finished the 10 Days of Vital trial (2 meals a day) and loved it. Opting for food pick-ups from The Juicery in Edgemont Village, it was so easy to swing by for quick pick-ups during my day. Depending on where you live, there are many other local partners around various lower mainland communities to choose from. Every four days you pick up your next Vital Supply Co meals which are packaged and ready to go for you as scheduled.
Whether you’re packing a fresh salad in your backpack for the peak of your hike, or rushing off for a weekend surf trip to Tofino in need some easy meals, Vital Supply Co has the answer for adventurers who like to live large, on the edge of adventure. Whether you are a weekend warrior, cyclist, hiker, surfer or yogi, no matter what your play preference or passion I can firmly stand behind Vital Supply Co as the giver of good healthy balanced food choices for active Vancouverites on the go.
After feeding my vitals for the past ten days, some of my favourite meals included:
Miso Mushroom Noodle Bowl w ChickenMalaysian Yellow Beef Curry w/ Brown Rice
Yellow Beef Curry w/ Brown Rice
Harvest Nourish Bowl w/ Chicken
Jerk Chicken w/ Roasted Pineapple Salsa
One piece of advice, if you are going to try one of Vital’s four tailored meal plans that are always without gluten, dairy or refined sugars, a reminder that the sooner you eat them the better they taste. Also, take the time to review and select meals you know you’ll love, as everyone’s taste buds are unique. Spending a little bit of quality time online in advance of placing your order will make you love your Vital meals that much more!
Choices include five- or seven-day Vital Supply Co meal plan subscription options: Foundation, Evolution, Acceleration, and Vital Life. Pricing starts at $13 per day, with plans ranging from one to five daily meals, plus snacks. An à la carte option is also available. Have fun and enjoy, I did and had more time to play outdoors doing what I love…and it’s not cooking!
