Food services in Canada

Meals

There are food services actually “Meal Kit Food Delivery” services that save you time from meal planning, targeted for the busy person perhaps with a family, with perhaps more than one mouth to feed.  Different services from raw ingredients with recipes to match, some provincial here in Canada to home delivery within an hour from local diners and grocery stores c/w alcohol and I hope in some near, almost predictable future, ‘Cannafood‘.

Here in Canada, if one went out for Cannafood, they would have to walk home or hire a cab.  Driving while under the influence of Cannabis or ‘Drugged Driving‘ is illegal.  It is odd that the law enforcement of North America considers Cannabis a drug in the same or worse category than Cocaine or Heroin, particularly with driving, but times are changing with what I call #Weeducation.  Nothing like home made though, while you wait for delivery.  In some areas, raw and concentrated Cannabis could be delivered too, locally and discreetly, perhaps not legally but fresher and more affordable.  Stay tuned for the future!

Canada wide delivery

There is a particular service I used for a few months.  GoodFood I can truly rate.  Their food arrives fresh on Dry Ice, the recipes are easy to follow and depending on basic skill level always comes out perfect.  They have a multitude of dinner meals, lunch brunch and breakfast beverages and meals including vegan/vegetarianism options to choose from.  It’s a good idea to know your protein substitutes as a vegan vegetarian diet is lacking as a major source of that overall, GoodFood has that info too as they appear to care about you.  They are just one federal service though.

Another one that I am not familiar with I first saw on Facebook was “Hello Fresh“.  They offer the same services as GoodFood above, likely with different meal choices.  I would expect that most of them offer about the same service with their own diverse menus, but some are based within the province and imho better as the food does not travel as far from farm to table.  That has to be a consideration in this age of Environmental awareness as ‘Local’ is best, and Provincial is second.  Nation should be the last choice although some international foods are good as they have unique tastes.  Never get international food as a ‘Meal Kit’ unless it’s prepared fresh, flash frozen raw, cold transported and your tastes demand it.  There are stores and diners likely local to you with the flavours you desire, perhaps deliver, and as above homemade is always best.

BC Provincial

It seems in the city of Vancouver, BC there are local BC Wide Meal Delivery Kits, a new one opened up delivering to Canada beginning here in BC.  Many Vancouver diners, grocery stores, and farmers markets appear to be listed to send meal kits to customers perhaps across our province.  Check the websites linked to those places in the above link for more info.  Google or use your favorite search engine the keywords “Provincial Meal Kits” for your province to see if you have any choices.  In grocery stores, you may have other shops that deliver, but many “Save On Foods” have a delivery service available, most have park and shop online shopping too, select your groceries online through the app or website and select a time to park and wait for them to be brought to your vehicle

Local

Well, Local I will limit to Delivery services from Diners you might or might not have in your community, I am sure you know the minor strictly local Dial a Bottle company delivering anywhere in Canada sometimes with more than just alcohol via deliveryservices listed below, or even your buddy Ralph who charges a gas fee and the local Booze Can epense after hours… Here in Canada, we have services such as “Uber Eats” where they operate, as Skip the Dishes operates in more communities sometimes delivering groceries through phone and computer apps like InstacartPizza Hut finally got delivery in my town likely had it in yours from long ago.  Pizza places of course you have your local shops delivering in all communities perhaps as well as the big name ones like “Little Caesars“, “Dominos Delivery (avoid the ‘noid, order tonight) and others in a chain across the nation

Search Engine Optimisation

What is Search Engine Optimisation?

It’s also called SEO.  You build a site.  That site has pictures, it has video, it has a theme.  You build it so people see it.  Simple huh?  Not really.  If you write what people are searching for, more search engines like Google, Bing and others which crawl your website and link the keywords the visitor writes to it.  The better your SEO, the higher you rank at the search engine your potential visitor uses.  The higher the rank, the more visits you will get.  More visits equals more return from your investment of a website, perhaps sales.

 

Why do we use SEO?

As hopefully explained above, the more visits your website gets the more its value increases. You can tell folks in your local community perhaps with expensive advertising without any knowledge of SEO, you will only get visits from a local community as far as the advertising reaches and they may or may not like what you offer affecting your investment negatively.  However with awareness of SEO style writing the search engines will drive global traffic your way, but the traffic that will make your investment positive as it’s targeted

How do we use SEO?

Again, hopefully as explained above, SEO style writing for your pictures in Alt Text, your first paragraph of text on the website which is used as a “snippet” at the search engine to attract the visitor who sees your link and the first part of your text.  The first 100 characters should be written Keyword Rich, and a focus keyword is needed to increase rankings in posts.  But how do you find keywords?  Simple.  Use a Keyword Research tool, found by searching at popular search engines, or other blog posts linked.

Will you see an increase in traffic?

Chances are much better.  I cannot promise you’ll rank high on your first website.  Best I made was 8th down the list on a Google Search, on my last host.  Not much traffic did I get but on my last host I had an average number of hits (below 100 to be honest) per week, it was steady daily traffic though and lots of subscribers.  My bad, I would do an average of a post every 6 months over 5 years.  Those have to be more frequent in a Blog style website to keep up SEO integrity.  Different hosts and hosting packages can help too but the main factors are using keyword rich text and having a good reputation online and live when dealing with visitors.  Good luck, keep up your integrity and be loyal to your visitors.

Hello world!

Hi.  This is the very first post I am putting on my new server, hostpapa.com.  I have this one for 3 years, starting during the Pandemic in September 2020.  I still have a base of operations in Prince George BC Canada and now have a Canadian web host!  The editor I am using is the classic editor in WordPress.  That ‘Gutenberg‘ editor is confusing but I’m sure if I used it, I would get used to it.  Meh.  Do you publish in WordPress?  On a domain you own like I do or at the ‘dot.com’ free editor?  What are your thoughts on that editor?  Comment below or on the facebook post I hope autoposts.

A stock image, added for SEO purposes

What will this site be?  I’ve yet to find an affiliate market for my new server, but as soon as I do, I’ll be encouraging you to buy a 3 year website c/w domain.  Hmmm.  OK you’ll have to purchase through above for a bit.  This will turn from ‘http’ to https’ very soon.  Perhaps tomorrow’s project.  Meh, tomorrow never comes.  It will be done soon.  No time like now eh?  Hurry up and wait on my personal projects.  For you non-technical people, it simply means any links here will have to be changed when I do change to https, this site becomes more secure for your safety here as well as mine.  Minor unless breached, fast fixed.  Till I find an affiliate, check out the server with the link above and perhaps I can make a few bucks in my future with out using PayPal’s ‘Pay Me’ link.  That link has also been my attempt to educate you on how to get 1,000,000 people to send you a dollar on many posts at Facebook and here in my blogs…  Give me a buck and I’ll tell you.  So far I’ve helped 130 people!  So far, I’ve justified my ‘Info’ title a few times with SSL awareness for the website, how a website makes its first coin without that PayPal grab tool and a paid offer sure to net 1,000,000 dollars into your Paypal account.  Will you be next?  Only a dollar to find out!  Thank you in advance.  Anyway, new posts will be regular I hope a diverse collection of thoughts and intelligences. Stay tuned!
