plant-based eating made easy with VEESTRO (+special offer!)

May 27, 2015 Baltimore, MD, USA

Meal delivery services are everywhere, and I was intrigued when Beyonce backed a vegan version. I knew I'd never pay for something just because her name was slapped on it, but still,  I was disappointed when the reviews came in stating that the food was just overpriced mush. I wished there was in fact a plant-based meal service that was both affordable and demonstrated to everyone just how good plant-based food can be.

Someone heard my wish, because I was stunned to get an e-mail from Veestro asking if I was interested in trying their food...their delivered, plant-based food. Yes, please!

Veestro's huge veggie burger-I brought it to a family grill night.

The founders of Veestro are are two siblings who, like myself , wanted to eat healthy but struggled with having quick, on-the-go options that fit the bill. Cooking is great, but we all know we don't always have the time needed to do so.

Veestro offers plenty of options from a la carte items to a 21-day kickstart program. I opted to try their starter pack which contains an assortment of 12 staff favorites.

The food was delivered via FedEx right to my doorstep (or rather, my office's doorstep) packed in styrofoam with dry ice to keep everything as preserved as possible until arrival. (Since the food itself is all preservative-free, I wanted to get it back in the fridge/freezer ASAP, so I made a quick, on-the-spot video of all the dishes that arrived:)

Of course, I know what y'all really care about...the food!.

I'm happy to report that it is not overpriced mush like some services. I didn't love every dish but that was because, really, if someone picks out 12 dishes at random they're bound to pick something you don't like. In this case, Eggplant isn't my thing, so the eggplant casserole wasn't my thing. If you like eggplant, you'd probably love it!

Overall, I loved most of the dishes sent and often cleaned my plate. My favorites were the oatmeal breakfast pie, 3 layer scramble, empanadas, red curry with tofu and vegetables,  and the golden chickpea stew. YUM!

Naturally, once food is frozen, it's never as photogenic as when it is first prepared, but it tastes amazing, which is what really matters:

Left to right, top to bottom: Savory Croquettes with Veggie Hash, Three Layer Scramble, Oatmeal Breakfast Pie,   Risotto with Butternut Squash and Kale, Red Curry with Tofu and Vegetables, Veggie Empanada with Enchilada Casserole.

Another great feature was that some dishes were microwavable, making them perfect to take to work (where, in my opinion, having on-the-go healthy options matters most.)! I finished my starter pack pretty quickly...and sometimes shared with Sean.

Veestro is definitely a service I'd use again and recommend to friends and family to try. In fact, Veestro not only gave me delicious food, but an awesome offer for any of you to try Veestro for yourselves!
