When you want to eat more plant-based and you also don’t want to be tied to the kitchen, many time-crunched people are turning to meal delivery options to enjoy the benefits of vegan food with the convenience of having most of the labor—from deciding what’s for dinner, to grocery shopping, to chopping and measuring—removed from the equation.

Plant-based meal delivery subscriptions vary from focusing on artisan ingredients and superfoods to worldly and comfort foods, from smoothies to filling meals. If you are interested in dabbling, just assess your own or your household’s needs and check out the great variety of possibilities that are available for delivery across the US today.

What is a plant-based meal delivery subscription?

Meal delivery service might mean ordering locally from Postmates or the likes, but in this case, it is referring to the growing number of businesses that offer meals you prepare at home, which are also sometimes known as meal kits.


In most cases, subscribers sign up for meals by the week, month, or longer, and receive deliveries to their door that contain ingredients separated by meal along with food prep instructions, or prepared meals that are simply heat-and-eat. Meals can also be ordered for multiple family members depending on the service.

Why try a plant-based meal delivery subscription?

In addition to the convenience for those without the time or desire to shop and cook, plant-based meal delivery services allow subscribers to reap the physiological benefits of animal-free diets, such as heart health and reduced inflammation, as well as benefit the environment and contribute less to animal cruelty.

What are the different types of plant-based meal delivery subscriptions?

There are meal services and plans that specialize in prioritizing health benefits and ones that are focused on recipes that are family-friendly.


Some delivery services are heat-and-eat and others require a little effort in the kitchen but use ingredients that have been pre-measured in the designated amount.
