 Natalia I’m a Vancouver-based mom and writer who loves to cook. Hope you enjoy!

The new year is fast approaching and with it comes many resolutions to eat healthier.

When researching ways to eat a more nutritious, well-rounded diet, the idea of “meal prepping” is often shared. Typically, the act of meal prepping involves preparing big batches of healthy food ahead of time, ensuring that you are never without a nutritious option. There are over 9-million posts on Instagram tagged #mealprep. Popular meal prep menus include steamed veggies, baked proteins and whole grain rice.

The idea of having wholesome food available all week with minimal nightly effort seems incredible… but when you’re facing your third meal of steamed broccoli and lentils it can be really hard not to order some delicious take out or fill up on leftover holiday chocolates.

An alternative to meal prepping is making fresh, healthy meals every day, but if the thought of shopping, chopping and baking exhausts you then a meal kit delivery service might be for you.

Meal kit delivery companies have been popping up all over the globe in recent years. By supplying easy to follow recipes and all the required ingredients, meal kit delivery services offer an amazing DIY approach to healthy eating. They are a great alternative to Sunday meal preps or nightly cooking sessions for the health-conscious, busy family, or anyone just looking to mix up their regular mealtime routine.

I’ve rounded up 5 of my favourite vegan/veggie meal kit delivery available in Vancouver to share with you.

Vegano Foods used to be a 100% plant-based vegan meal kit. They originally launched in January 2021 and adopted a zero-waste approach to their kits. However, there have been several changes to their business model.

Vegano has now become a vegan food and home marketplace where customers can purchase a wide range of products to suit their lifestyles. The items that are the most similar to their original vegan meal kit are their pre-made bean soups. 

Customers now have the option to purchase breakfast bundles, soups, meat alternatives, sauces, snacks, vegan supplements, and vegan cleaning products.

Vegano can deliver to both Canada and the United States, however, their shipping prices can be quite expensive. If you don’t live in Vancouver and are going to purchase from this company we recommend purchasing an order over $75 to take advantage of their free shipping.
