Veestro is a relatively new meal-kit delivery service that has made quite a splash in the food industry. Founded by three guys who were sick of being stuck at work all day and only able to grab fast food, Veestro offers customers the convenience of having delicious, healthy meals delivered right to their doorsteps.

What is Veestro?
Veestro is a company that delivers plant-based vegan meals to your door. Veestro delivers every week with 11 different meal options. They offer three different diet plans - weight loss, performance and health - which you can customize with four flavor profiles: classic, spicy, sweet and savory. There are also four protein options: soy, pea/rice, chickpea/tofu or lentil (gluten-free).
How It Works
Veestro meals are shipped to your door. They are delivered in a box with dry ice, which keeps the food frozen and ensures it stays fresh. Once you add the dry ice to the Veestro-designed insulated bag, you can place your meals in your freezer.
The subscription costs $79.99 for 3 months or $89.99 for 6 months, and includes free shipping. Veestro also offers a meal plan for those who don't want to commit to full subscriptions, at a rate of $14.00 per meal delivered.
Veestro takes healthy eating to the next level, offering many benefits that interest people who care about how they live. One of the most appealing aspects of Veestro is its convenience. Since meals are delivered fresh to your doorstep, you don't have to make any effort at all to get a healthy meal prepared and ready for you. This is very attractive for those who work long shifts and want a convenient way to eat healthy while still being able to sustain themselves throughout their hectic days.
Veestro offers three meal packages: Basic, Deluxe and Gluten-Free. Each package offers a different number of dinners and a different number of snacks. For example, the Basic package is for one person and includes three snacks and four dinners. The Deluxe is for two people, including six snacks and eight dinners (all dinner ingredients are enough to make two servings). The Gluten-Free Package is for one person with ten snacks and six dinners.
Recipes & Ingredients
All Veestro meals are made from scratch, using only natural ingredients: organic vegetables, fruits and grains. All meals are plant-based and have no GMOs, gluten or soy.
Vegetarian? Vegan? Omnivore?
Veestro is a plant-based meal delivery service. They do not offer anything that contains meat or poultry. In addition to the meatless option, Veestro also offers three other protein options: soy, pea/rice and legume/tofu.
Vegan dishes include :
Mac & Cheese with Lentils
Penne Pasta with Chickpeas and Pesto Sauce
Sweet Potato Lasagna
Maple Soybean Sausage and Veggies Sandwich on Rye Bread
Spicy Black Bean Burger with Avocado Tropical Fruit Salad (My favorite.) (This is the only vegan option that contains fish)
The packaging for each meal is in an insulated bag, which will keep the food frozen for up to 48 hours. The Veestro-designed bag features a zippered closure and designed specifically to hold dry ice.
Veestro meals are packaged in the same style as other meal kits, such as HelloFresh or Blue Apron. However, there are some differences between the packaging of Veestro and that of its competitors.
Veestro meals are plant-based. As a result, they are healthier and more sustainable than other meal delivery services, which — depending on the menu — may include meat.
Veestro meals are also vegan. Vegan meals offer an alternative to people who follow a plant-based diet and want easy access to healthy, convenient vegan food that doesn't take much time to cook.
Veestro meals have no added oil or animal products, which makes them healthier than most other meal kit services.
Veestro meals are expensive. A standard meal kit from HelloFresh will cost about $9 a meal. Veestro is almost twice that, at $15 per meal. The meals are also significantly smaller than some competitors, which can be hard on the wallet for families or individuals who want larger portions.
Veestro meals only cater to vegans and vegetarians. People who simply want to try a healthier option may not be interested in consuming meat substitutes as part of their diet.
Who It Is Good For?
Veestro meals are great for people who want to eat a healthier, plant-based diet but don't have the time or energy to cook. The frozen meals are delivered fresh and can be prepared at a moment's notice.
Veestro is also great for people who want access to vegan food but live in a place where there aren't many options. In addition to being convenient, Veestro meals are delicious and offer an alternative to the traditional meat-heavy diet that dominates most grocery stores and meal delivery services.
Veestro offers customer service in the form of phone calls, emails and online chats. They also offer a "community" feature on their website where customers can connect with each other to share recipes, ask questions about ingredients and make suggestions for future meals.
Veestro's customer service is very responsive, with a quick confirmation email once you place your order and friendly customer service personnel that respond quickly to messages. They also offer recipes on their blog for people who want to learn how to make any of the meals they deliver themselves.
Making Changes and Canceling
Customers have the option of making changes to their diet plans or canceling their subscription altogether.
Veestro makes it easy to change your delivery date, which is helpful if you're planning on traveling or going out of town for a few days. You can also contact Veestro's customer service team and cancel your order any time before it ships.
If you decide that you don't want to continue with Veestro, they will replace the rest of your order with extra snacks so you can try their product before you cancel.
Veestro is definitely more expensive than other meal delivery services, but it offers good quality, convenient vegan food and is healthier than most.
While I was skeptical of Veestro at first, the convenience and food quality won me over and I ended up ordering almost every week throughout the winter.
Veestro is great for people who want to eat a healthier plant-based diet but don't have time to cook.
