Their menu focuses on whole foods, favoring dairy-free and gluten-free options. Founded by a busy mom seeking nutritious meals for her family, FoodZen operates with an Indigenous-owned, hyper-local approach, highlighting seasonal ingredients from the Waterloo Region. Their sustainable practices extend to packaging, with a commitment to reusing containers. New menus are released weekly, with orders due the Sunday before Wednesday deliveries. While they offer various subscription options (as well as one-off order options), their 3-meal individual plan is priced at $50 per week, with the flexibility to pause or cancel subscriptions at any time. Currently, they serve Kitchener, Waterloo, and Cambridge, with plans to expand to more areas soon.

I recently tried out FoodZen‘s meal delivery service and was thoroughly impressed by the flavorful and fresh ingredients they use. From zesty ginger to crisp bok choy, vibrant carrots, and colorful peppers, each dish was packed with a variety of wholesome vegetables. In fact, across the three meals I ordered, I counted a total of 10 different vegetables, showcasing the diversity of their offerings. In my food order, I tried a three-sister chili, a Korean beef dish with noodles, and a jerk tofu bowl. Remember, the menu options change every week!

One standout dish for me was the three-sister chili, which not only delighted my taste buds but also sparked my historical interest. The three sisters refer to the trio of crops cultivated by indigenous cultures for thousands of years; corn, squash, and beans. This agricultural tradition involved planting corn, beans, and squash together, where each plant supported and complemented the others.

  • The cornstalk acts as a support for climbing beans, which in turn enrich the soil with nitrogen through their root nodules and provide stability to the corn during strong winds. Meanwhile, the broad leaves of the squash plant provide shade, retaining soil moisture and hindering weed growth.

Beyond the historical insight, FoodZen‘s meals also impressed with their home-cooked quality and bold flavors. The Jerk seasoning, while mild, offered a distinct taste that elevated the dishes without overwhelming them. Moreover, the portion sizes were just right for a satisfying yet healthy meal experience. Coupled with the freshness of the ingredients, each meal felt nourishing and light, leaving me feeling comfortably full and content after every bite.
