Where are the Best Grocery Stores for To Go Food in Calgary?
With summer here you can expect more and more people to get out and enjoy the many restaurants in the Calgary area. And while that's all well and good, truth be told we will still be getting the bulk of our food from the grocery store. Yes, restaurants are great. But at the end of the day they are not a place you want to indulge in every single day, introducing the grocery store meal.
At some point you have to cook right? Well not necessarily. You see, these days there is a fine line between going out for dinner and going to the grocery store to pick up a meal. It seems as though the grocery store meal is on the rise. We all know about the convenience meals you will find in most grocery stores.
Generally speaking these meals are frozen and not very tasty. But all of that has changed thanks to the grocery store meal. These meals are prepared fresh and they taste pretty decent too. Of course how great the meal is will depend on the grocery you choose to go to.
Ken Woo, who just happens to oversee food centre operations and merchandising at the Calgary Co-op, believes Calgary is one of the best markets for fresh to go meals. This is because most Calgarians are between the ages of 25 and 54. That means they have a lot to do and are constantly on the go. These meals are the perfect alternative to having to go home and cook a full course meal.
For most to go food in grocery stores may seem like a new and exciting trend. But truth be told it’s not. Ever heard of Community Natural Foods? Well they have been doing this for over 30 years. They serve to go food in their in store cafe. And the best part is they use only high quality ingredients they have sourced locally.
If you are looking for a quick and healthy way to keep your family fed without slaving over the stove, try to go food in your Calgary grocery store. You will love it!
