An Example Week
I've had two orders gifted to me for Splendid Spoon – the first was the Breakfast+Lunch plan, and recently I tried 5 of the 6 noodle flavors.
Breakfast (Smoothies) + Lunch (Bowls):
I did not love all the flavors, but I did have favorites. You do have the ability to customize your box, so I imagine this is something that you will learn over time which flavors are best suited for you!
The smoothie flavors I tried were:
- Orange Hibiscus
- Pumpkin Spice Smoothie
- Raspberry Cacao Smoothie
- Green Matcha Smoothie
- Carrot Ginger Smoothie
My favorite smoothie was the Raspberry Cacao Smoothie. I love how the ingredients are clearly labeled on the front for you!
Surprisingly, my least favorite smoothie flavor was the pumpkin spice. I love a good pumpkin spice latte, so I expected this to be my favorite.
I coordinated my delivery while I was traveling, when I knew I wasn't going to have access to a full kitchen or time to cook much while staying in my AirBNB. This worked out well for grab-and-go breakfasts, and easy lunches or dinners with the bowls.
Sometimes I ate the bowls right out of the packaging, which also saved on doing dishes!
The flavors of bowls I tried were:
- Moroccan Spice Buckwheat Bowl
- Cumin Sweet Potato
- Coconut Curry Rice
- Lentil and Kale
- Brown Rice Taco Bowl
My favorite bowl was the cumin sweet potato. Cumin is one of my favorite spices and sweet potato is one of my favorite vegetables, so this was no surprise to me here!
My second favorite bowl was the coconut curry rice bowl. It had a lot of greens which I appreciated!
Love that Splendid Spoon now has noodle options that still fit in the gluten free and vegan category! So far my favorite has been the green curry noodles, which definitely have a little kick to it and satisfy my craving for Thai food without having to order out. I also like that you can heat it up right from the bowl, and no need to do dishes.
Overall, Splendid Spoon is a perfect solution if you're looking for a vegan and gluten-free, ready-made meal delivery. The fact that they offer the option for smoothies for breakfast is also a plus.
They all have clearly labeled and minimal ingredients, which I love.
And they are continuing to innovate and expand their flavors, like with their new noodle dishes.
While not all of the flavors are ones I would order again, it is fun to try their range of options and find your favorites. I used this service while I was traveling to a different city and busy working during the day, which really reduced my cost of eating out and also time spend worrying about what to eat.
The portions are not huge but were filling enough for a meal. (Though keep in mind the nutrition facts are based on 2 servings per bowl.)
I do also appreciate that Splendid Spoon is focused on sustainable packaging!
