Maybe you want to lose a bit of weight, maybe you’ve just finished watching Cowspiracy. Maybe you want to be more like Beyoncé (because who doesn’t want to be just a little more like Bey), or maybe you’re just too busy to bother with cooking.
Regardless of the reason, there are a bevy of meal delivery services that cater towards a plant-based diet, all the convenience of a Hungry-Man meal but without the guilt.
A plant-based diet means no dairy, eggs, or meat and there are many benefits to a plant-based lifestyle to both your own health and the environment:
- lower risk for heart-disease
- lower rate of cancer
- reduce your carbon footprint -- it has been estimated that up to 51% of greenhouse gases are the result of animal agriculture
- to prevent animal cruelty
Though meal delivery services certainly aren't a new thing, there are a few that specialize in plant-based meals, meaning you can combine the convenience of ready-made meals with the knowledge that not only are you helping yourself but also the environment. So let's look at some of the plant-based meal delivery services on the market right now.
Sakara Life counts Gwyneth Paltrow and Victoria’s Secret models as fans and believes in a food-as-medicine approach. You have the option to buy 3-day and 5-day plans or to subscribe for weekly deliveries with no commitment. Though Sakara Life's plant-based meal service is certainly beautiful and very trendy even a one-off 3-day plan costs $265 with shipping, a little on the higher end for a day's worth of food. Thankfully, they also have individual products ranging from watermelon seed butter to recipe-books for purchase in their Clean Boutique and be sure to check for deals from Sakara Life on Dealspotr.
