Vegetarian? Shopping For Meat? Try Grocery Delivery

With summer well and truly here, many Canadians are looking forward to restful weekends on the back patio or by the lake. It has long been a Canadian tradition to fire up the grill and host a big barbeque for friends and family, and for vegetarians who are expecting to host their non-vegetarian loved ones, this often involves pressure to make sure there are some meat options available to throw on the coals.While it isn’t difficult for vegetarians to find recipes to put together a meat-lover’s feast,sourcing the meat itself can be cause for anxiety. People who do not consume meat themselves are often unsure of the best meat to purchase for their guests, and it can be especially hard for those who don’t feel particularly comfortable dropping by their local butcher shop. One of the best ways around these problems is for vegetarians to use home delivery services — fresh meat delivery options like truLOCAL can bring locally raised, sustainably sourced beef, pork, chicken, and fish to homes, offices, and cottages anywhere in Ontario. Services like truLOCAL use refrigerated boxes, which means you don’t even need to be home to receive the order, and when it arrives, you can keep it packed on dry ice until you need to use it — so you don’t need to worry about storing meat products alongside your own food.

Home delivery services usually offer both pre-selected boxescontaining a range of common meats including steak, bacon, ground beef, and pork chops, and customizable options if you know which particular meat your guests prefer. It’s always best to go with a service that offers as wide a variety of products to choose from, as this will guarantee that all your meat-eater friends have something they enjoy, so look for a provider who has exciting options like buffalo burgers, organic turkey, and sirloin tip roast. You might also want to make sure there is wild-caught fish available for people who may prefer not to eat meat, but can’t resist grilling some fish.

If you don’t want to handle the meat yourself, you can always opt to go with a service that packages each cut individually. Not only does this mean you don’t need to get your own hands dirty, it also makes meal preparation easy, protects against freezer burn, and ensures that if you don’t use the order right away, it will keep until the next barbeque.

In the past decade, huge strides have been made in mainstreaming vegetarian lifestyles. Especially in large cities, it is now possible for vegetarians and vegans to find plenty of food they can eat — even in fast food establishments. But because the majority of North Americans still eat meat, meat-eaters are less used to not having familiar foods available. If you are hosting an event and you want to make sure all of your friends and family have something they feel comfortable eating, why not use a meat delivery service to provide local, sustainable meat that you can be proud to serve? Your guests will be sure to thank you!
