If you are moving to Adelaide and wondering how to feed your family then this blog is for you! When relocating there are so many different things to think about – the Adelaide removalists, the transportation of your essential items, how to safely move your precious items, the logistics of how to move your family members, vehicles and pets, all the paperwork associated with having a new address – the list goes on. Often people forget the associated costs of takeaway food during the busy process of unpacking boxes. Not to mention some of unwelcome side effects of eating too much fast, and often fried, foods. Well, we are here to help with some recommendations and options for feeding you and/or your family during your next move in or around Adelaide.
Chef on Wheels
If you have hired an Adelaide removalist then why not enlist the services of a professional chef too? All for only $11 per meal!
Chefs on Wheels features a growing collection of dishes from Adelaide’s favourite restaurants, chefs and food brands delivered directly to your home via their easy to use website. The meals are ready-made to heat and enjoy made from scratch from local ingredients making them delicious, nutritious and cheaper! Whether you’re in the mood for Thai, Italian or Indian, even desserts, they have a little bit of everything and all for around $11 per serve or $35 for a 2kg family serve. It really is a great affordable option considering the quality of the food. We have tried their meals and they are fantastic – it really feels like a restaurant meal and a much better alternative to an awful frozen dinner.

Cook at home convenience
There are essentially two types of meal delivery services: ready made or “make at home” meal kits. Recently CHOICE reviewed the four major players in food box delivery services such as HelloFresh, Marley Spoon, Dinnerly and Pepper Leaf. They all scored highly and users commented on how simple and easy to follow the recipes were as well as their affordability, with the cost of the kits usually coming in less than buying all the ingredients separately. Overall HelloFresh scored the highest. Some of their most popular kits include Garlic Baby Broccoli & Green Beans with Lemon, Mint & Creamy Fetta and Mexican Beef & Corn Quesadillas with Cheddar Cheese & Sour Cream. When moving into your new home, however, you may not have some “every day” ingredients on hand such as soy sauce, white vinegar, salt and pepper, honey, oil, butter, milk, eggs, flour and sugar – so it’s worth checking you have them before your first delivery so you’re not caught short. You can order with HelloFresh by visiting www.hellofresh.com.au
In the north eastern suburbs of Adelaide is Mercato where you can grab all things Italian. It is an Italian superstore open every day, offering fresh coffee and coffee products, pastries, pasta, wine, deli with a vast array of smallgoods and cheeses and a dine in or takeaway service offering authentic Italian meals. Why don’t you grab yourself a family sized lasagne and some crusty bread to easily feed your family on those busy nights. The service is fast and the food is always high quality and delicious. They are open 7 days including public holidays. They are located on lower north east road at Campbelltown. Phone 8334 9898.
