6 of the Most Reliable Delivery Services for Delicious, Nutritious Vegan Meals
Many of us are spending more time in the kitchen these days. Instead of going out to dinner, we’re enjoying cozy evenings in with homemade meals. With these recent changes, it may be the perfect time to experiment with vegan meal delivery services! Not only can they help keep your meals creative and fun, but they’re a great way to get high-quality ingredients delivered straight to your door.
Here are some of our favorite plant-based meal delivery services:
Founded in 2014, Purple Carrot is a 100 percent plant-based meal service offering exciting cook-it-yourself options for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and snacks. From loaded avocado toast to Korean tofu tacos, you’ll never get bored with Purple Carrot. Prices vary depending on how often you receive deliveries, and you can choose your preference between chef’s choice, high protein, and gluten-free.
Unlike Purple Carrot, Thistle delivers ready-to-eat plant-based meals instead of ingredients and recipes. Developed by the company’s nutritionists and chefs, the meals are fresh and packed with nutrients. You can also customize your menu or pause the service at any time.
With plans starting at $9.99 a meal, Green Chef offers meals that feed families of two or four. The ingredients come measured and prepped with simple, step-by-step instructions. While Green Chef is not totally vegan, it’s “Plant-Powered” plan has tons of plant-based options.
VegReady is completely vegan and ships a case of 24 dishes—or eight complete meals—to your doorstep. The company uses an all-natural food-preservation process, and the food can stay fresh for up to a year! For now, cases are purchased individually, but VegReady hopes to resume its subscription service in the future.
