Vegan Meal Delivery

Vegan Meal Delivery Services

In the new age of technology, going to the store is so 2010. Whether you work long hours, dread grocery shopping, burn everything, need to hit that workout class, or want to impress a date (we won’t tell), vegan meal delivery service is your answer. It’s also a great way to transition to a vegan lifestyle or try new recipes.

There are several services that are emerging, but with these options, which one do you choose? That depends on your effort level. And trust us, this is a judgement free zone.

DIY vs. Pre-made Meal Delivery

There are two categories for vegan meal delivery: DIY and pre-made meals. Do it yourself is exactly what it means… do it yourself. Your delivery will include premeasured ingredients and sauces, as well as recipes. Everything is prepped, but the cooking and presentation are up you. Getting nervous already? Don’t worry. There are options for those that want to leave the cook– creative process up to someone else. Premade vegan meals arrive either ready to eat or with minimal preparation (heating it up in the oven or on the stove).

The services don’t stop there. They branch out into different food categories. These categories include vegan, vegan plant-based, organic, raw vegan, gluten-free, and a combination of those options.

Here’s a breakdown in case you’re on the fence about where you fit.

  • Vegan: using or containing no animal products.
  • Plant-based: a diet procured from plants, including vegetables, fruits, nuts, whole grains, seeds, and legumes. This diet is free of refined sugars and processed foods. A plant based diet differs from raw because foods can be cooked about 118 degrees.
  • Raw vegan: a diet that excludes foods cooked about 118 degrees Fahrenheit. It includes raw fruits and vegetables, nuts, seeds, herbs, and grain/legume sprouts.
  • Organic vegan: this includes foods that are produced with plant based fertilizers, without the use of chemical fertilizers.
  • Gluten-free vegan: a diet that excludes gluten, a binding protein often found in wheats and grains.
