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.

MARTHA & MARLEY SPOON

If you could have delicious meal ingredients delivered, complete with award-winning recipes, for less money than you'd spend at the grocery store, would you do it? That's the question Martha & Marley Spoon wants you to answer, because they claim they can make that happen.

Your options with Martha & Marley Spoon are straightforward: do you want dinners for two or for three to four people? How many meals would you like to receive per week: 2, 3, or 4? And would you like your delivery box to only contain vegetarian meals? If you can answer those questions, you're well on your way to getting meals that come from the 18,000 recipe archive of Martha Stewart herself.

Whichever plan you pick, every meal delivery box from Martha & Marley Spoon comes with fresh, pre-portioned ingredients and the 6-steps-or-less recipes you select from the 10 options on each weekly menu. Menus are available up to four weeks in advance; typical entrees include Steak and Almond Romesco, Warm Tortelloni and Bean Salad, and Chili-Lime Shrimp.

Your delivery date depends on where you live; in our area, we could select between Mondays and Tuesdays. Your deliveries are guaranteed to be usable for at least 4 days after delivery (with the exception of fish; you'll need to cook that within 48 hours of arrival). You should also plan on having some pantry basics like sugar, eggs, oil, and salt on hand.

How does Martha & Marley Spoon stack up against similar services? Unfortunately, the answer is "not very well". We found a significant number of customers complaining that orders were delivered days later than expected - with melted ice packs, completely thawed meats, and damaged containers. Where most of the competition would immediately offer a refund or replacement, customer reviews seem to indicate that this company only offers a discount on a future shipment. Martha & Marley Spoon has no refund policy or satisfaction guarantee on their site that says otherwise. We're glad to see that their customer service department responded to the complaints we saw, but we'd like to see a better approach to keeping customers happy - one that their competitors already provide.

We also weren't impressed with the meal delivery plans: with only 10 recipes to choose from each week, and no ability to customize according to dietary needs, Martha & Marley Spoon just doesn't measure up to other services that we reviewed. So, in the end, they might be able to deliver ingredients for meals to your doorstep for less than you'd spend at the store, but your end result could be disappointing.

Best Meal Delivery

To help you find the Best Meal Delivery, TopConsumerReviews.com provides you with an in-depth comparison of Veestro and Martha & Marley Spoon.

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!
