4 Ways To Show Mom You Care With Food

These tasty vegan Mother's Day gifts will make you the favourite child.


With Mother’s Day right around the corner, we’re all wondering how we can show mom she’s our #1. Flowers, expensive gifts, a fancy outing – all the usual suspects. But there’s one universal thing that will almost always connect us to our moms: food. Sure, you could take her for brunch and be done with it. But we both know you can do better. Here are 4 unique and surefire ways to show mom you care with food.

1. Cook with her. 

She’s probably taught you a thing or two in the kitchen. Maybe she has a favourite recipe? A childhood favourite passed down from her mother and her mother’s mother? Whatever it is, find that meal that means something and spend the day cooking with her. Not only will you get those warm and fuzzy feelings of nostalgia, but you’ll be able to spend solid, uninterrupted quality time with the woman of the hour.

Can’t find the perfect recipe? Try this Vegan Nacho Supreme for a family fiesta or Flaxseed Flapjacks to kick off the day.

2. Take her to experience your favourite food.

When you’re all “grown up” and adulting, it’s easy to start feeling disconnected from your mom. Not only does life get busy, but you start to develop your own life separate from hers. While she adjusts, she also misses some of the new and exciting things that make you, well, you. Want to give her a glimpse into your life and all the deliciousness that comes with it? Treat her to your favourite food, restaurant, or spot in town. Experiencing your favourite cuisine together is a tasty way to show her who you are and what you love. Even if she’s got particular taste buds, she’ll cherish the time with you and the deeper understanding of this new part of your life, whether it’s vegan food or escargot.

3. Treat her to a week of meal delivery.

For all the meals mom has made you over the years, why not give a few back? Gift her a week of delicious homemade meals delivered right to her door so she can take a well deserved break from worrying about meal prep or groceries. Upbeet Foods delivers fresh, plant based meals from an eclectic rotating menu all over Toronto and the GTA. And you’ll get 20% OFF a whole week of vegan delivery – 6 hand picked meals for mom – when you order now using the code MFM!

4. Spend the afternoon at a cooking class.

While sitting around stuffing your faces is always a good time, turning food into an activity is actually a perfect bonding opportunity. Sounds like a lot of work, we know. But treating mom to a cooking class allows you to work as a team without any competitive pressures and experience something new together. You might even learn something about each other you didn’t know! Plus, you get to eat the whole time. Can’t go wrong, if you ask us.

Whether you do the cooking or leave it to the pros, there are so many creative ways to make mom feel loved through food. Mother’s Day is coming up – time to get cooking.
