VEESTRO

If you agree with Veestro that plants are "the greatest food on earth", or you're looking for vegan meals that aren't just good for you but taste great too, this is the meal delivery service for you.

Bright colors and clear navigation is a highlight of the Veestro site. Whether you're looking for a meal plan or want to fill your delivery box with a selection of a la carte items, you'll find it easily, with thumbnails and average customer reviews on every product.

When it comes to meal plans, Veestro started with a great selection that has only expanded and improved over the years. They've got something for people experimenting with a vegetarian lifestyle or for those who already know that being vegan is the way to go; available meal packs include the following:

  • Starter Pack: 10 meals and 1 juice, starting at $8/meal
  • 21 Day Kickstart: 3 packs to choose from, 1-3 meals per day, starting at $8/ meal
  • Protein Pack: 25 high-protein meals, starting at $9/meal
  • Gluten-Free: 24 meals with a variety of breakfasts, lunches and dinners, starting at $9/meal
  • Meatless Monday: 24 meals designed to transition you into eating more plants, includes 24 meals, starting at $9/meal
  • Lunchbox Pack: 20 meals and 5 juices, all designed to be easy to heat (if necessary) and eat, with gluten-free options available, starting at $9/meal
  • Wedding Prep: lunch and dinner for 30 days, starting at $9/meal
  • Kosher Pack: 28 kosher meals, with gluten-free choices available, starting at $9/meal

You can also find a Weight Loss plan that has 3-, 5, and 7-day options. All plans include approximately 1,200 calories per day, and prices range from $209 to $369 per week for both regular and gluten-free menu plans.

Veestro's final package is the Juice Cleanse; choose between 3- and 5-day plans that both include 100% organic fruit and vegetable juices. We recommend that you also take a look at their Juice Cleanse Success Plan before deciding if this is the right package for you.

Or, if you'd prefer to hand-select only the foods that appeal to you, Veestro makes it very easy to order a la carte. You can quickly sort the possibilities by What's New, Breakfast, Entrees, Soups, Desserts or Juice, or make yourself hungry by browsing All Products.

You're not likely to find anyone that says that living an organic, vegan lifestyle is inexpensive, so we love that Veestro tries to make it as affordable as possible. We suggest that you look at their rewards program that gives you points on every order, along with perks on your birthday and for any referrals you send their way. Those points can then be exchanged for discounts on future orders. Also, you can save 10% off any a la carte order when you sign up for the Veestro newsletter.

Shipping rates at Veestro can be hefty or heavenly, depending on the size of your order. For orders over $199, you'll get free delivery. If your order is between $99 and $198, expect to pay $19. Or, if it's less than $98, you'll pay a whopping $35 - so you may want to go big on your order. Alternately, if you live in CA, you'll pay a flat rate of $12 for orders under $198 (lucky you). Orders ship on Monday or Tuesday and are delivered on Wednesday through Friday, depending on where you live.

Veestro customers are happy campers. Look at the individual menu choices and you'll see customer compliments and suggested tweaks for making recipes even more flavorful or more filling. There's an impressive number of Veestro options that have five-star ratings from their customers, including the Breakfast Burrito and Chick'N Nuggets.

The only issue with Veestro is their limited target market: vegans. We love that this meal delivery service meets the needs of an often overlooked (and under-appreciated) audience, and that they do it so well. But, for people who don't mind having some eggs and dairy products in their meals, who are picky eaters in general, or who just don't have a problem with eating meat, Veestro isn't going to be their top choice.

Of course, for those who are vegan - or striving to be - Veestro may be the only company to consider for meal delivery.

HOME BISTRO

Home Bistro offers delivery of freshly-prepared, frozen meals. They have a good variety of options, including Meal Combos, SUPERBowls, Individual Meals, and Chef's Choice selections. All meals are designed to be boiled in their bags, but easy microwave instructions are included so that your food will be ready in 10 minutes or less.

Pricing varies depending on the plan you select. For example, you can get 10 meals in the Chef's Choice plan for $134.99, 20 meals in the Table for Two collection for $259.99, or individual meals starting at $16.29. Examples of Home Bistro's meals are Artichoke-Lemon Steak with Vegetables, Mediterranean Tapenade Salmon, and Roasted Harissa Shrimp with Gratin.

Although they don't make it easy to find, the filter function lets you sort available choices by dietary preference, such as paleo, diabetic-friendly, or gluten-free. Look for the "Filter" dropdown towards the top left once you've selected your category, like Meal Combos or Individual Meals.

What's Home Bistro's refund policy? There is none. "Home Bistro has a strict no-refund policy due to the nature of shipping perishable meals." That's a far cry from their competitors, who state emphatically that they want their customers to be satisfied, no matter what, and who offer to replace or refund anything that is less than excellent. Home Bistro's approach is to tell customers that they can email their support address within 24 hours if they have any issues. That's not an acceptable way to handle customer problems.

And, you can expect problems with Home Bistro. When nearly 100% of the reviews say things like "poor customer service", "horrible quality food", and "disappointing in every way", it's no wonder that the company hides behind a policy of "all sales are final".

When we looked at Home Bistro's contact page, we found that they have an alternate name: Dinewise. Dinewise's reputation across the web was equally disappointing.

Although Home Bistro has been around for a while, their reputation is lacking, especially when it comes to how their food tastes. We're confident that you'll have a better experience with a meal delivery service that is committed to their customers' satisfaction.

Best Meal Delivery

To help you find the Best Meal Delivery, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth comparison of Veestro and Home Bistro.

Who is the best Meal Delivery company? Are you looking for a way to simplify dinner after a long day at work? Using a meal delivery service has become an easy way of getting nourishing, flavorful food on the table without the hassle of grocery shopping.

Of course, the most popular reason for using a meal delivery company is the convenience. Customers love being able to order their favorite entrees, side dishes, or even appetizers and desserts, and to choose how much cooking they'd like to do. Some meal delivery services are reheat-and-eat, while others provide you with all of the ingredients you need to create a restaurant-quality meal in your own kitchen.

As these services have grown in popularity, the types of meals and plans has expanded as well. Has your doctor recently put you on a special diet, and you're not sure how to incorporate it into your lifestyle? Whether you're adapting to a diet that's low in carbs, diabetic-friendly, or even gluten-free, you'll find a meal delivery program that can help.

Are you interested in becoming a vegetarian but unfamiliar with how to create a balanced meal? Once again, there's a meal delivery service for that - use it for a few weeks to get ideas of lunches and dinners that you can recreate, or for as long as you like as you adapt to your clean, green way of eating.

As you consider which meal delivery service is best for you, you'll quickly see that they vary greatly when it comes to price, preparation, and types of food offered. Keep these criteria in mind as you decide which company fits your needs:

  • Reputation. What do past and current customers have to say about the meals they received and the overall experience, from ordering to delivery?
  • Cost. What will you spend for the meal delivery plan you choose, whether you opt for a la carte entrees or regularly-scheduled weekly or monthly shipments?
  • Variety. Does the meal delivery provider have an appetizing range of flavors and cuisines to choose from? Will you be able to select meals that you'll actually want to eat?
  • Satisfaction Guarantee. If you're unhappy with the service, the quality of the food, or the condition of the meals at the time of delivery, can you get a refund or a replacement?

TopConsumerReviews.com has reviewed and ranked the best meal delivery services available today. We hope these reviews help you find the service that puts the food that you're craving on the table right away!
