At Marrow & Spice, not only do we work hard to supply food that is local and ethically produced, we are also devoted to offering Real Food made from Real Ingredients.
We specialize in foods have a Caribbean or Thai flair but we prepare many items that cater to different dietary needs and flavour pallets. At this time of year we are all about the grill, and substituting some grilled meats into our regular meal plans is a favourite!
As the popularity of our healthy take-home entrees has increased, so has the demand for specialty meal plans for specific diets and conditions. Whether you have food allergies, are going the Paleo route, eating strictly organic, eating sugar or salt free, have other requirements from your nutritionist or naturopath, or are living with a disease requiring a specific diet, we can cook to suit.
Many are not fully aware of how important diet can be to the well-being of someone with a disease like Parkinson’s, but it is very important. Many of the drugs prescribed for Parkinsons can cause dehydration and/or constipation. To counteract these side effects, you need to maximize your intake of raw foods to lower inflammation, eat protein regularly (but not too much), and take in lots of fibre to aid with hydration and alleviate constipation. Cold-pressed oils are high in Vitamin E providing anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory help. Omega fatty acids will help to produce more Dopamine, supporting the patients neurological health. Drinking Green Tea which contains Theanine will also help to elevate Dopamine levels. Processed foods are a definite no-no, due to their sugar and sodium content, which inhibits Dopamine production. Alcohol, artificial sweeteners and Gluten are also good to avoid.
If you just don’t feel like cooking, want to provide meals for someone who isn’t feeling well, or have special dietary needs, Marrow & Spice has portioned delicious meals to offer. We do Vegetarian, Gluten-Free, High Fibre, High Protein, and Vegan every week.
We do all the work putting together a meal plan that is wholesome, healthy, and easy to prepare. Just reheat and eat! Many of our meal plan customers have commented that they feel better eating Marrow & Spice meals – whole, fresh ingredients, preservative-free, and tasty.

Come into the store and talk to Roger about your meal requirements and let us take the worry and the work out of healthy eating!
