If you’re following a vegan diet, you already know that it can involve a lot of time-consuming prep and cooking, as well as severely limit your dining out options. That’s where a meal delivery service can come in handy.

Even if you’re new to veganism or just interested in the diet, a vegan meal delivery service is a great way to try a variety of fully plant-based meals.

Healthline has assembled this list of the best vegan meal delivery services based on the following criteria:

  • Cost: What’s the cost per serving? How much is shipping?
  • Ingredient quality: How does the company source ingredients?
  • Customization: Are there optional add-ons or other personalization options?
  • Vegan focus: Does the company cater exclusively to vegans, or does it also offer meals for other diets?
  • Subscription: Is a subscription mandatory?

Here are the 8 best vegan meal delivery services.

Sunbasket

Sunbasket offers meal kits that include a variety of breakfast, lunch, dinner, and optional snack items. Unlike other items on this list, Sunbasket not only offers vegan options, but you can also try paleo, diabetes-friendly, gluten-free, and Mediterranean options.

It’s important to note, however, that Sunbasket manufactures all of its food items in one location, which means there is a risk for cross contamination. This means that although there are gluten-free menu options offered, this service still may not be best for you if you have celiac disease.

If you’re searching for a vegan meal delivery service, the most important thing to consider is whether the service is fully vegan. Many meal delivery services are vegetarian or plant-based, but not all of these offer a fully vegan option.

Next, consider your other dietary needs. Several of the services listed above offer fully gluten-free vegan menus or feature mostly organic ingredients.

Pricing may also be a consideration for you. Per serving, prices for meals from these services range from $5–$15.

Finally, you want to check the availability of the service in your area. Most meal delivery services are available nationwide, but some have restricted delivery areas.

Using a meal delivery service can make sticking to your vegan diet — or trying a vegan diet — much simpler and less time-consuming.

Fortunately, several options cater to a wide variety of budget levels and dietary needs or preferences.

When choosing a vegan meal delivery service, it’s important to double-check that the service offers a fully vegan option rather than simply vegetarian or plant-based ones.

Additionally, you want to make sure that it’s a fit for your other dietary needs and budget, as well as available in your area.

The services listed above are an excellent starting point if you’re looking for a vegan meal delivery service.
