The Latest Plant-Based Meal Delivery Splendid Spoon, Makes It Easy to Eat Green on the Go

Splendid Spoon Meal Delivery

Splendid Spoon is the latest player in the plant-based delivery service with a special focus on quick, easy, delicious and nutritious food. The offerings include a focus on smoothies, soups, and bowls.

The flavors of the smoothies are the first thing that caught my attention: Pumpkin Spice and Orange Hibiscus as well as Blueberry Coconut. Each one was more of a treat than the next!

The soups were equally original and satisfying, Carrot Lentil Curry may be my favorite, but there are 40 different meals to choose from, including hearty bowls that add a "comfort food" spin to the usual delivery options. The Moroccan Spiced Buckwheat Bowl mixes unusual spices to add a robust flavor to usual healthy ingredients like broccoli, butternut squash, and chickpeas. You would not guess that this taste could come from those everyday salad add-ons.

The first thing we loved about the Splendid Spoon experience was the customization tool that allows you to pick your plan and also your meals. Love grabbing a smoothie on the way to the train station in the morning? Stick with the lineup of sweet and clean fruit-based mixes. Prefer soup for lunch? There are veggie-packed nutrient-dense choices that will fill every day of the week. Want a grain bowl for dinner? Splendid Spoon pulls together a variety of flavors to make you feel like you've eaten enough, but not over-stuffed yourself.

Each of the meals is designed to create healthy alternatives to protein bars or skipping a meal altogether. You can stay healthy and plan your plant-based eating, instead of facing a harsh hunger pang from skipping lunch, with no options in sight but a slice of pizza at 4 p.m. (been there). Splendid Spoon delivers fresh, plant-based, gluten-free, and GMO-free ingredients to your door for as little as $9 a meal on the "Reset" plant of 5 smoothies, 5 bowls, and 1 full-day reset delivered weekly for a total of $135 a week.

One quibble we have with the offerings is the way they sneakily say that each one contains two servings. Not for nothing but we get hungry and a smoothie that is 8 ounces is enough to keep us satisfied and full for the next few hours. But telling me I have to split it or have 4 ounces now and the rest later doesn't feel like enough food. Same with the soups and bowls. One container is a meal, but if the label calls it "two servings" it feels more like a snack. As long as you don't mind doubling all the calories, fat grams, sugar, and protein (and all the other nutrients listed) on every label, then Splendid Spoon is a splendid choice for eating healthy and plant-based all week long.
