Most trends come and go, but plant-based eating isn’t going anywhere. Not only has plant-based eating been linked in studies to lower risk of diseases like high blood pressure, heart disease, obesity, and diabetes, but eating a diet rich in veggies and fruits provides more nutrients and antioxidants, which can help give us energy, lower inflammation, improve our immunity, and overall wellness. Plant-based eating is no doubt good for our bodies. But it’s
Also earth-friendly (the production of meat and dairy is a significant contributor of greenhouse gases that fuel climate change) and kinder to our animal friends. Eating plant-based doesn’t necessarily mean you need to commit to being a hard-core vegan or vegetarian. Healthier for our bodies and our planet, it just means eating lots more veggies and cutting down on meat and processed foods. And when done right, it can make you feel better.
But changing the way we eat can be complicated and confusing at first. That’s why Splendid Spoon, a plant-based meal-delivery service, can be a great way to start or even keep you on track with plant-based eating.
We gave Splendid Spoon a try. Here’s our review of their foods and some tips for what we learned about their service.
What’s On The Splendid Spoon Menu?
Splendid Spoon has over 50+ ready-to-eat plant-based meal options for breakfast, lunch, and dinner to fuel you through your week. With globally inspired dishes and so much variety, part of the fun of ordering from Splendid Spoon is trying dishes with ingredients and flavor profiles you wouldn’t usually cook on your own.
And you can use Splendid Spoon meals to fit into your diet any way you see fit. For example, smoothies make a great breakfast, but you can also use them for a healthy snack on the go or even a low-calorie dinner. The options are many, but the choice is yours.
Soups: The soups at Splendid Spoon range from light veggie purees to more filling options with lentils and beans. They’re all nutrient-packed, easy to heat up, and a great way to get your veggies on the fly. The lighter veggie soups are perfect for dinner or lunch, while half a soup serving can work as a snack. Heck, have one for breakfast if you’re in the mood. Some of our favorites were the Carrot Lentil Curry (this was our favorite),
Butternut Turmeric, the Lentil and Kale, and the Garden Minestrone. All in all, Splendid Spoon soups are delicious, and you can’t beat the variety and quality of good-for-you ingredients. Smoothies: With two servings in every bottle, Splendid Spoon offers 16 low-sugar smoothie flavors to choose from, packed with a variety of fruits, veggies, and superfoods, including spirulina, camu camu, goji berries, dragon fruit, baobab powder, and
matcha. Not only do these smoothies serve up some severe vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants, but they’re also a good source of gut-healthy fiber that will help keep you full. Some smoothie flavors also have a boost of protein from almonds, cashews, or pea protein. We really enjoyed the AB & J Smoothie (a Splendid Spoon fav) and their Chocolate Cherry Smoothie. The Raspberry Cacao is perfect if you love raspberries and chocolate, and the Mint Chip is next on our list to try since rumor has it tastes like ice cream. Sign me up!
