These 7 places will deliver wholesome, plant-based ‘heat and eat’ meals right to you – just browse their mouthwatering menus online and take your pick!

There are tons of reasons that a plant-based meal delivery service might appeal to you. It’s a perfect solution for new parents, or anyone going through a stressful time for that matter — when cooking feels impossible, but proper nourishment is most needed. It can be super handy for those who have disabilities or difficulties in the kitchen. It’s also a great shortcut if you’re simply not into cooking, or need a bit of support while making the switch to a plant-based lifestyle. And let’s be honest, no matter who you are, it just feels nice to have a meal made for you!

So check out these 7 businesses that will deliver healthy, filling, plant-based meals to your home.

1. Soulara

Moussaka, jackfruit curry, supercharged satay bowl … yum! This entirely plant-based meal delivery service has an extensive, mouth-watering menu. You can also add pressed juices and healthy snacks to your order, and you can filter the menu to exclude a whole range of allergens including gluten, nuts and garlic. There’s a range of plans depending on how many meals you order. For 12 meals it works out to just $10.65 per meal.

Garden of Vegan is perhaps who you’d turn to if you think of your body as a temple … Every ingredient is certified organic, and made without oil, gluten, or refined sugar. Yet somehow they taste richer than restaurant food! They’ve got you covered for breakfast, lunch, dinner and dessert, with optional extras like veg boxes and pantry items, or family sized portions to share with a special someone. You can build your own box or enjoy one of their tailored meal plans. Individual meals range from about $13 to $18.

Just for Victorians…

For you lucky folks in Victoria, there are even more options for you to choose from.

6. Compassioneat

This small business has nailed the protein-packed dishes, with a real care taken to ensure meals are nicely balanced. They’re hearty, wholesome, and downright scrumptious. It’s hard to go past the multi-layered lasagna or Sri Lankan Dal, but even the dish called ‘Gym Junkie’ is more flavourful than its name lets on! All your protein sources from Compassioneat are organic, too — an added touch your body will appreciate. Meals range from about $9-$13.

7. VegMeUp

This one is a little different. VegMeUp is a plant-based meal kit delivery service. You choose the recipes (which change frequently), and they deliver all the ingredients (and instructions!) you need to make healthy, tasty plant-based meals. This is the ideal option for those wanting to hone their vegan cooking skills, but lacking the time or mental energy to select recipes and sort out food shops – and we’ve all been there. With VegMeUp, you’ll feel more empowered with every meal you whip up. 4 dinners for 2 people will cost you $98 – roughly $12 per person per meal.
