Vegin’ Out Review

UPDATED Dec. 2018

In the year 2000, Vegin’ Out started out as a small business fueled by enthusiasm, love for food, knowledge about the vegan diet, and a desire to please customers. Since then, it has turned into a major vegan delivery service that offers great meals to hungry customers nationwide. Apart from choosing the best ingredients and constantly coming up with new meal ideas, they also understand that each customer has different needs, so they offer additional items like entrees, side dishes, cookies, and salad dressings, as well as customization upon request.

How Vegin’ Out Works

Every Monday, Vegin’ Out sends out delicious vegan and vegetarian meals across the nation. You can have the meals delivered to your home or office by simply choosing the package that works best for you (the packages differ in quantity). Before you place your order, make use of the special requests box and tell them if you want them to leave out the ingredients you are allergic to or would like to avoid, if you want your food to be gluten-free or if you want them to provide you with the nutritional information on your meals.

The ingredients they use are fresh and organic whenever possible (about 85% of their ingredients are organic). They use no processed foods and the meals are 100% vegan.

A good meal is always a great gift – and a week’s worth of tasty dishes is about as good as it gets. If you know someone who would like the dishes Vegin’ Out offers, you can send them a gift certificate for a single or double meal order or recommend Vegin’ Out to them. Once they make a purchase, you will have $25 added to your account if you are a registered customer or get a $25 check if you do not have a Vegin’ Out account. All your friends have to do is mention your name in the comment box. If you are not a customer, make sure you send an email to Vegin’ Out, giving them your contact information, so they can send you a check, and do not forget to list the names of the people you are referring.

What Makes Vegin’ Out Different

Vegin’ Out’s core concepts are what makes it different from most of the currently available meal delivery services, as it only offers vegetarian and vegan dishes. This is great news for all the vegans and vegetarians out there who are used to having a limited range of meals to choose from.

Another great thing about Vegin’ Out is that all of their dishes have a low-fat content, they are free from cholesterol and trans-fats, and most importantly, they are cruelty-free. Additionally, they strive to provide their customers with meals prepared with the best locally grown and organic ingredients.

What really caught our eye when researching for this Vegin’ Out review was the meal customization option. If the meals you want to order contain anything you do not like or cannot eat due to allergies, the undesired ingredients will be removed from the dishes in your meal package. You just need to let them know what you want changed or excluded.

Although their menu does not feature gluten-free meals per se, most of the meals can be made without ingredients containing gluten if you make such a request when placing your order. Unfortunately, the cookies cannot be gluten-free.

Every week, Vegin’ Out comes up with 9 amazing dishes that make up their meal packages. Take a look at the dishes in the menu section or on their home page and be sure to check the list of ingredients they provide. If you see a dish you are not sure about, you can have it removed from your order and get twice as much of your favorite dish.

A single meal package includes three 24 oz entrees, four 16 oz side dishes, one 32 oz soup, and a bag of delicious vegan cookies (5 per bag). That means that you can get up to three servings from each of the entrées, side dishes, and soup.

Vegin’ Out invests a lot of time and effort into coming up with new, exciting dishes. Currently, their menus are repeated once every 8 weeks, which means that if you order from them every week, you will eat the same thing only 6 times a year.

Vegin’ Out wants your food to remain as fresh as possible until you are ready to eat it. This is why they pack their meals into insulated cooler bags with ice packs that keep deliveries cool for 2-4 hours. If you cannot pick it up and put it in the fridge on the day of delivery, they urge you to ask someone to do it for you. If no one is available, you can also have the food delivered to your office. Alternatively, you can leave a cooler with additional ice packs in front of your home, so the driver can leave your meals there. If there is no safe place to leave the food, the driver will contact you in order to schedule a redelivery, which comes with a fee of $15-$20.

Pricing

The prices of meal orders at Vegin’ Out include both the price of the meals and the shipping costs, which depend on your location. By ordering more, you save more, so if you opt for a double meal order instead of a single, you can save around 10%.
