Of all the things I know about food, the one thing I don’t know how to do is control my portions. I mean, I KNOW how, I just can’t seem to do it. When I first went vegan, it didn’t seem to matter how much I ate, the weight fell off. But as you know, you can eat vegan and still be overweight. After all, there are so many amazing vegan foods and products out there – it’s not like we all just eat barrels of kale (though we could, right?)
When I was writing an article about vegan meal delivery services, one of the ones I wrote about was Veestro Meal Delivery Service.
Their goal is to make it easy for people to eat healthy and they offer three ways to do that:
- ala carte – each of Veestro’s dishes is available as individual choices you can purchase. There are soups, entrees, desserts and juices.
- meal packs – there are a variety of packs that are put together to meet your specific dietary requirements and keep you eating healthy and balanced without having to make a lot of decisions.
- weight loss – easy (and delicious) ways to achieve your weight loss goals — by replacing 1, 2, or 3 of your daily meals with healthy, organic, non-GMO, 100% plant-based meals
Whichever way you choose to play, you get the meals delivered to your door. You can either have one-time delivery or set up a recurring delivery schedule that meets your needs so there’s no running out of food.
All the food at Veestro is natural, organic, non-GMO, preservative-free and of course, vegan. They also have gluten-free options. Oh, and you can get family-size portions (no, not just for you) so the whole family can eat healthfully.
I was lucky enough to get to try Veestro Meal Delivery Service. Veestro owners, Mark and Monica, sent me a box with a sample of their frozen meals.
I was worried – I’m not a big fan of other people’s cooking and I was expecting to “doctor” up the meals. Also, if you’ve seen pictures of my dishes, you know my portions aren’t skimpy. I was worried I’d be hungry. Let me tell you how it went. I have a few of my own pictures but some nights, I just ate so I’ll show you Veestro’s pictures for those dishes.
I started with their Veggie Empanadas. The dough was tender and flaky and they were filled with lots to tasty veggies. You get 3 empanadas and it comes with a delicious chimmichurri sauce. I’m pretty sure this is my favorite meal. No doctoring necessary!
Next, I tried the Red Curry with Tofu and Vegetables. This dish smelled so good and tasted even better.
A favorite of mine, Soba Noodles with Peanut Sauce, came next. Yummy noodles in a silky peanut sauce. So good.
For breakfast, there was a Three Layer Scramble with peppers, beans and Ranchero sauce. I actually had it for dinner and it was incredible.
The Risotto with Butternut Squash and Kale was sweet and savory at the same time. Creamy and delicious.
If you like Moroccan food, the Moroccan Melange was so good. Exotic spices and smells as good as it tastes.
The Thai Chick’n Stew is spicy and filled with tender seitan. Delicious.
For dessert, I got to try the Chocolate Covered Cheezcake. Now if you know me, you know I’m not big on desserts but I did eat half of this. It was thick and creamy and covered in a decadent chocolate ganache.
I did add a dollop of So Delicious Whipped Cream 🙂
Everything was so good and that’s just a small sample of what Veestro has to offer. There is vegan fried chicken, quesadillas, burgers, lasagna, portobello steaks and so much more.
You can get any of these dishes ala carte or there are several meal packs to choose from including kickstarters and protein packs. As for the prices, Veestro is constantly sending out emails with discount coupons and they offer free shipping if you spend a certain amount.
You can’t beat Veestro for convenience, fast service, and delicious food. Now that I’ve had a taste, I definitely want more. If I could just eat Veestro food, I know I would be healthier and lose weight because they give you appropriate portions. Honestly, I certainly felt so much better after eating their meals.
Maybe I’ll be able to do that one day and my other dream is to do one of their juice cleanses. They offer them in both 3-Day and 5-Day options. That would be just the reboot my body could use.
Check out Veestro’s web site and learn more about what they do. There are lots of videos to watch and articles to read and pictures of their food so you can see for yourself.
Thank you, Veestro, for letting me try your meal delivery service. One day I hope I can try the juice cleanse and eat more of your healthy, delicious meals.
Great website, thanks for all the terrific ideas!
