Veestro Review - UPDATED Aug 2017
Veestro has worked hard to set themselves apart from other meal delivery services. Their mission is not just to bring food to your table. They are in the business of delivering happiness to busy people. However cheesy and cliche it may sound, this statement rings true for a number of vegetarians and vegans who simply do not have the time to keep up with their diet and lifestyle as much as they would like to. To them, Veestro truly delivers happiness.
Veestro believes that plants are the greatest food on earth. They are very picky about hand-picking each individual ingredient that they put into the meals they prepare. With Veestro, you always get a meal that is perfect for your busy lifestyle, prepared from the freshest ingredients available. The meals are not just flavorful and healthy, they also bring you just enough nutritional value to let you enjoy all your daily activities with a satisfied tummy. Our Veestro review will highlight all the strengths and shortcomings of this meal delivery service so that you could easily decide whether it is a good choice for your needs.
How Veestro Works?
Selecting and ordering a Veestro plan is pretty easy. You’ll first choose a plan that best fits your desired goals. The meals are organized in one of four categories – a la carte, meal packs, weight loss, and juice cleanse. After picking a category, you can choose one of the available options to further customize your order.
After that, the chefs take over. Organic products are turned into high quality and great tasting dishes. All the entrees are certified as vegan, non-GMO, and preservative-free. Some dishes are also dairy-free and gluten-free.
If you have any questions, you can check out their FAQ section. They have already answered many questions that are related to how ordering and deliveries work, the life span of the ingredients, and billing and charging policies.
Another cool feature of their website is the option to purchase Veestro Gift Cards and give them out to your friends. Your vegan and vegetarian mates will be very excited about receiving Veestro gift cards.
What makes Veestro Different?
Veestro owners Mark & Monica have written an interesting manifesto about eating vegan food. They’ve creatively called it their Plantifesto. In it, they sum up the main reasons why they consider eating plants the best choice for them, for you, and for the planet itself. Among many quotes, this one stands out: “We believe you shouldn’t have to eat anything you don’t love. Or that doesn’t love you back.” Whether or not you’re a vegetarian, you have to agree with that.
Furthermore, they insist on strongly opposing junk food. Everything that they prepare for you must be up to the highest standards of quality, both in terms of health and nutrition, as well as the taste it provides. Choosing the right ingredients and being persistent about choosing nothing but the best is one of the staples of their cuisine. And the entire process doesn’t end with you just enjoying a tasty meal. They want it to end by putting a smile on your face and making your day.
When explaining why they’re so in love with plans, they’ve provided us with some very interesting data:
- Health pleasing – Figures show that eating a plant-based diet lowers the risk of type 2 diabetes by 62% and cancer by 20%. Regulating blood pressure is also a potential benefit.
- Weight pleasing – A very bold claim that people who eat plants weigh less and have a lower body mass index. That is achieved by being able to eat more and feeling fuller on fewer calories.
- Planet pleasing – Eating a plant based diet eliminates up to 1.5 tons of CO2 from the atmosphere each year. This is equivalent to removing 500.000 cars off the road.
- People pleasing – Yes, you read that right. Eating plants actually makes you happier, as it pleases your health, your weight, and your planet, not to mention your sensitive taste buds.
All in all, this is a very strong case in favor of vegetables. Putting this much passion and love into designing and preparing meals for subscribers definitely shows, as you can see in this Veestro review.
