Every now and then, people, even if they are chefs, need a little help when it comes to meal planning. From a busy social life and keeping up with your kids, to even the unpredictable nature of a 9-to-5, trying to ensure that you get a meal on the table can be quite the challenge. Let alone, getting a healthy and nutritious meal. Instead of relying on the good ol' drive thru, have you ever considered trying a meal kit?
If you are vegan, then dietary restrictions can cause added stress. Already, living a vegan or plant-based lifestyle often requires planning ahead and creativity. Figuring out how to get fresh produce you trust in order to make nutritious, satisfying meals can at times be something of a hassle. For vegans, it can often be hard to find places to order from or to think of new recipes, especially if you’re cooking for a full house and the hungry crowd is getting restless.
With meal kit delivery services, vegans can enjoy what so many other consumers have already discovered - the convenience of having plant-based ingredients and meals that you believe in shipped directly to your front door. You can keep things fresh and healthy with inspired vegan recipes, and it’s all only a few clicks away. Curious as to what the best vegan meal kits are? Check out our ultimate guide!

Purple Carrot is a trailblazer in the world of vegan meal kits! They offer a wealth of high-quality vegan options allowing you to not have to settle for the boring veggie options offered by other meal kit companies. With Purple Carrot, you can choose from 3 specialty meal plans, such as their Chef’s Choice, Quick and Easy, High Protein, and TB12 performance (gluten-free) menus. You can even choose to have Purple Carrot’s in-house chefs select your weekly meals for you! With the Quick and Easy plan, you get recipes that only take about 30 minutes or less to prepare, while meals from the protein plan includes recipes with at least 20 grams of protein. With the Chef’s Plan, you get gourmet recipes and ingredients that will make your vegan meals more interesting than ever before.
All that being said, the prices are fairly high, at about $12 per plate, or $13 per plate for the TB12 Performance meal plan. The company doesn’t offer any family meal plans, which can be an issue if you’re trying to order for a full household. Also, you don’t get to select the exact delivery day or time, though the company says that the deliveries do keep for 72 hours if you’re not home right away to pick them up.

MamaSezz is a company that supplies ready to heat and eat vegan meals that are hearty, and never have oil, gluten, preservatives or sugar.

The company also has a 100% satisfaction guarantee and vows to refund your money within 14 days if you aren’t happy with an offering.
