Meal delivery services don't always include an option for those who eat a vegan or a dairy-free diet – but these are a few of the best ones we've tried who do!
Daily Harvest – You might know them for their smoothie cups, but they now have great meal choices. Harvest bowls, soups, dessert bites, and their latest flatbread choices (I recommend the sweet potato + kale!)- all options are vegan and gluten-free and made with delicious organic fruits and vegetables with zero preservatives or additives. Save $25 off your first box with code “trialandeater” on their website– choose your own meals or get their customer favorites box. These come frozen and will need to be warmed up, and in some cases blended (like the soups and smoothies). (See full review here– with photos!)
Veestro – these are plant-based meals that come frozen. You'll like this one if you want freezer options to keep on-hand for rushed or backup weeknight meals. Gluten-free options available. (Buy from their website or see full review here.)
Sakara Life – Sakara is a great full-service meal delivery that is both plant-based and gluten-free. They have snacks that you can get in their marketplace to supplement the meal plans (my favorite are the detox bars) and the meals come fully prepared with 3 meals a day. It is one of the more expensive options, but you can save 15% with code TRIALANDEATER on Sakara's website. You'll like this is you want all your food ready to go, and want to do it for 3 or 5 days at a time. (see full review here)
Splendid Spoon – these are fully-prepared soups, smoothies and grain bowls. Smoothies are ready to eat, and you'll just need to reheat the soups or bowls, so it's minimal prep time! All options are also gluten-free. Save $10 with this link. (See full review here.)
Sun Basket – Sun Basket offers a vegetarian plan, but there are at least a couple options that are dairy-free to choose from each week within that category! You'll like this one if you are looking for organic ingredients, still want to cook your meal, and are okay with having fewer options week to week. (See full review and get $35 off here.)
Purple Carrot is one I haven't yet tried personally, but have heard great things about and is next on my list. They are fully plant-based and they send you ingredients to cook the recipes yourself. Menus change weekly – click the “menus” option in the menu bar to see what they're currently offering before going to “pricing” and then “sign up.” Get $30 off your first box with this link and code “carrot30” at checkout (that's more than the discount they'll send you in an email when you register!).
And, if you just need help making a meal plan but prefer to do the shopping and cooking yourself, Green Plate Club will make the weekly meal plans for you! They offer a plant based option, vegetarian and a flexitarian option.
BONUS: Vegan + Dairy-free snack and pantry food delivery options
Vegan Cuts – this isn't meal delivery, but SNACK delivery! I love this company because each box supports different animal sanctuaries, and it's a fun way to discover new brands. They have special edition boxes as well, like gluten-free or pantry stock-up. Save $5 with code TRIALANDEATER at checkout or see full review here.
