Tips for Eating Alone

Whether you live alone and need some inspiring solo dinner ideas, or you simply want to take control of your nutrition and save yourself money at the same time, Chefs Plate is here to help. Take a look at our top tips for eating alone, saving you time, money and more.

  • Make your meal for one an event: Food isn’t only nutritious food for your body; and just because you’re eating alone doesn’t mean it has to be uneventful. Use your best plates and cutlery, pair with your favorite beverage and set the mood accordingly.
  • Celebrate the foods you love: Eating alone means you are in the fortunate exposition of only having yourself to please. If you want to have the same meal three days in a row, or add extra spice because you like things hot - do it!
  • Pre-plan: Making a meal plan for one, or using a meal delivery service such as Chefs Plate means you can prepare in advance, cutting down on personal food waste, time and expense.

Most asked questions about dinners for one

Do you offer meals for one person?
The smallest meal kit size we offer is for two meals per week for two people. However, we have found that many single person households use these as a meal kit for one person, as they are able to enjoy lunch and dinner throughout the week, saving both time and money.
When and where will you deliver my single person meal delivery?
We deliver our easy meals for one all across Canada, including Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan, Prince Edward Island, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia & Manitoba. Enter your postal code at the checkout to see if we’re currently delivering to your area. You’ll choose your preferred delivery day when you order and your meal kit for one will arrive between 8.00 AM and 8.00 PM. You will receive an email when your order is on its way. You can find more about our meal delivery areas here.
How much does delivery of meals for one cost?
Delivery is free on all of our plans excluding our two-person plan with two meals per week. There is a $6 delivery charge applied to this plan.
Are Chefs Plate dinner meals for one healthy?
Chefs Plates’ meals for one allow you to enjoy fresh, balanced meals at home. Cooking with fresh ingredients means important nutrients won’t be lost, while our recipes are also portion controlled. Our meals beat any type of convenience food, frozen food or fast food.
Will the ingredients in the recipes for one person stay fresh?
Our boxes are designed to keep your food fresh until you return home on the night of your delivery. For the best results, we recommend refrigerating the items in your box for one as soon as you can.
