Where Can You Find & Buy Ready-Made Meals in Australia?

Meal delivery services are on the rise in Australia, and it’s easy to see why. They’re convenient, budget friendly and of course, very tasty. Ready-made meals can be ordered online through dedicated ready-made meal providers and shipped right around Australia (Sydney, Adelaide, Melbourne, Canberra etc.) or bought in-store at Coles, Woolworths, Aldi and more.

What’s the Difference Between Meal Kit and Ready-Made Meals?

Confused by the difference between meal kit and ready-made meal? You’re not alone, and there is a pretty big difference. Meal kits providers send you fresh ingredients and recipes for you to cook at home, while ready-made meals are fully prepared and require no cooking. It’s that simple.

Where Can I Find Gluten-Free Ready Made Lasagne?

If you have dietary requirements like gluten-free or dairy free, lasagne can be a pretty tricky one to find that meets your requirements. The good news, however, is Tutto Pasta Gluten Free Bolognese Lasagne is stocked at Woolworths and is 100% gluten free. Food4Fitness also does a Gluten Free High Protein Beef Lasagna.

Remember, always check the food label and nutrition information to make sure the meal is free from any products you’re allergic or intolerant to.

Are Pasta Dishes Healthy?

Everything is healthy in moderation! If healthy eating is important to you, that doesn’t mean you should miss out on pasta, which is typically (and wrongly) seen as an “unhealthy food” due to its higher carbohydrate content.

If you’re trying to lose weight, you can still enjoy pasta dishes like lasagne on occasion – just be mindful of your serving sizes/portion sizes and how the calories fit into your daily allowance. You can even pair it with a glass of red wine if you wanted to and still lose weight!
