Right now is the perfect time to consider signing up for a vegan meal delivery service, whether it's because you want to eat healthier, or you don't want to cook every night—or the fact that going to the grocery store fills you with anxiety these days. Having food delivered right to your door is simply the exact kind of comfort you need right now.

Whatever your budget or menu preference, you’ll be glad to know there’s no shortage of options out there right now. From companies focused solely on vegan meals to those that have specific plant-powered menus as part of their larger offerings, you have your pick of delivery services that vary in cost, packaging, customization and amount of cooking required.

The Beet habitually covers the top plant-based meal delivery services, but more come along every week, it seems so along with our previous selections that included Purple Carrot, Sakara Life, Plantable and Daily Harvest, we recently tried out Splendid Spoon. Here, we present to you even more choices to help you find the perfect fit for delicious and nutritious plant-based meals delivered to your door.

Offering only vegan meals, Veestro earned VegNews’ 2018 Veggie Award for “Best Meal Delivery” of the year. It was also named the “best meal delivery for vegetarians and vegans” in 2020 by CNET.com. Veestro’s fuss-free meals are fully prepared, so all you have to do is heat them up with an oven, microwave, or skillet.

Founded by a brother and sister, Monica Klausner and Mark Fachler. They were living in Los Angeles when Mark told Monica that he missed the healthy plant-based cuisine that they knew from their childhood (they are originally from Costa Rica). He started a business based on the fact that it was hard to find healthy plant-based food to make quickly after a long day at the office. Veestro was born on the belief that healthy plant-based food should not be expensive, boring or hard to get.

There are three plans to choose from: a la carte, chef’s choice, and weight loss. With the a la carte option, to fully customize your box, you can pick your favorites from their entree and breakfast options.  With the chef’s choice box, they’ll round up either their customer favorites, high-protein dishes, or gluten-free meals to send you. With the weight-loss option, you’ll get meals that add up to around 1,200 calories a day.

Mosaic is here to show that frozen food doesn’t deserve its bad reputation. Instead, it can have a positive impact by reducing food waste and expanding access to nutrient-rich food. Their plant-forward, protein-packed meals are divided between noodle bowls, risottos, and veggie bowls—all can be microwaved in five minutes or less. Choose from their dishes to customize your eight-meal box and then decide if you want to get deliveries every week, every two weeks, or every four weeks. While many of their menu items are vegan, not at all are, but those are clearly marked on their website and they take care to package non-vegan items (like cheese) separately. Focused on changing the food system for the better, Mosaic partners with the non-profit City Harvest to distribute nutritious food to New Yorkers in need.

Their menu changes every week, so there are constantly interesting new dishes to try—all of which are nutritionist-approved. Any dish you choose will be fresh, fully prepared, and ready to eat in three minutes or less.

When signing up for Sprinly, you have to decide whether you want 6, 12, or 18 meals a week, but like with other plans on this list, you can conveniently skip or cancel weeks at any time without a fee. As an extra plus, Sprinly chooses to give back to the community by donating to Wholesome Wave, an organization committing to increasing access to fruits and vegetables for those struggling with hunger.

Cost: You can choose the Reboot four-week program, which delivers12 meals each week for $175 per week, or their shorter Quickstart plan, a one-week reset of 12 meals for $225

Popular meals: Rotating menu; Thai Coconut Red Curry, Zia Linga Sugo, Magic Mac "Un" Cheese, and Hippie Brunch Burrito

Plantable’s approach is unique in that its meal delivery centers on a program designed to reboot your relationship with food, to create healthier habits, and help you experience positive, long-term transformation. Ambitious, but what would you expect from a female founder, Nadja Pinnavaia, who is also a Quantum Chemist and former Managing Director of Goldman Sachs?

Plantable offers personal coaching with professionals who can help guide you through the on-ramp of committing to plant-based eating. Pinnavaia has chosen a path of trying to help people be healthier through the food they eat. She wants to give people the sense that they have control over their food, their health and can choose to love a delicious, plant-based diet.

Plantable offers two routes: There’s the "Quickstart" option that gives you one-week to reset your eating, and then there’s the "Reboot" option (their signature program) that lasts four weeks and helps solidify these new behaviors. Whichever you choose, you’ll also get connected with a personal eating and lifestyle coach who’s there for you 24/7 if you have any questions. Delivered frozen (but without added preservatives), Plantable’s vegan meals don’t have any added sugar, use whole grains, and are high in fiber. Once you finish up one of their programs, you’ll get access to purchase their ongoing subscription or their a la carte boxes.

The Thistle chefs come up with a new menu of gourmet, nutrient-packed dishes every week that are free of dairy, gluten, refined white sugars, artificial preservatives, artificial additives, and artificial dyes.

Not all of Thistle’s subscriptions are vegan or plant-based though, so make sure you choose one of their 100% plant-based selections. Along with breakfast, lunch, and dinner meals, they also offer juices, snacks, and wellness shots to those who live in their local delivery zone. As part of their commitment to sustainable sourcing, Thistle donates the by-product of their food to local farmers for composting.

There’s no cooking necessary with Fresh n’ Lean’s ready-to-eat meals, and vegans have two menus to choose from: their standard plant-based menu and their low-carb plant-based menu. The difference is that the low-carb, plant-based meal program leaves out grains for one of the meals per day.

Depending on how often you want their food, you can subscribe to a weekly meal plan that gets delivered fresh every Friday or you can place one-time orders from their a la carte menu. Since Fresh n’ Lean promotes using seasonal ingredients and wants to keep their offerings exciting, each week presents a new menu of dishes. Concerned about environmentally friendly packaging? Fresh n’ Lean’s packaging is all recyclable and BPA-free.

Thrive Foods Direct began as an offshoot from the Thrive book series by Brendan Brazier, an endurance athlete and proponent of a vegan diet. After so many people responded well to the nutritional principles in his books, Brazier was inspired to start a meal delivery service made up of nutrient-dense, plant-based meals that followed the same fundamentals. Thrive Foods Direct has a few plans, including one entree per day plan and the Thrive Plus plan (three meals per day plus a supplement serving), which is targeted for those doing above average physical activity. The type of meals you get are randomly selected from their rotating menu, but they’re centered on the key components of antioxidants, electrolytes, alkaline-forming, essential fats, phytochemicals, calcium, and iron.

Shipping Area: Nationwide

Popular meals: Lazy Lasagna, Millie’s Chili, and Gardener’s Pie

Cost: A la carte dishes range from $4 to $6 per serving, and various bundles of 24 meals in different customized menu options are priced at $169 or about $7 per meal.

MamaSezz meals aren’t just vegan; they’re also free of gluten, wheat, oil, refined sugar, preservatives, peanuts, and sesame. The way it works is you place your order online for one of their meal bundles or from their a la carte menu before Sunday 8 pm ET and then you’ll receive your fresh, fully prepared meals by delivery on the following Thursday or Friday. After that, it’s just a matter of heating and eating! If you’d like, you can also subscribe to automatic deliveries for bundles every week, every other week, every three weeks, or every month. MamaSezz also has a program where they provide a shipping label so you can return your packaging materials to them to recycle.

Cost: Starting from $127.99 per week (three entrees, four side dishes, one large soup, and one bag of cookies)

Vegin’ Out’s meals are all vegan, but they still offer a range of unique plans to their customers. For example, outside of their standard delivery plans, there’s also a diabetic-friendly blood sugar control meal plan, low carb plan, and five-day soup and juice cleanse. You have the choice of throwing on some extras like side dishes, cookies, and salad dressings to further spice up your meals, too. The menu changes from week to week, so the type of meals you’ll get will vary but most are designed to be mix-and-match bundles with different entrees and sides. For your convenience, all of Vegin’ Out’s meals are prepped and cooked, so when you get them, you just have to heat them up.

Shipping Area: Continental U.S. (no Alaska or Hawaii)

Popular meals: Two options—Amazonian Rainforest Meal Case and Coastal Verde Meal Case

With VegReady, it’s also a game of mix and match as you’ll receive a case of 24 vegan dishes, including mains, sides, and sauces, that you can combine together for a total of eight complete meals. One distinguishing characteristic of VegReady’s meals is that they don’t require refrigeration. The company uses an all-natural food preservation process (no chemicals!) so their meals stay fresh for up to a year without being popped in the fridge or freezer. VegReady is currently only offering one-time purchases but has plans to bring back monthly subscriptions in the future.
