Not only are more people cooking their meals at home lately, but more people are getting into the concept of clean eating, or to be a little more specific – a plant based diet. People are more conscious than ever about what they’re putting into their bodies, and where their food supply comes from. But let’s face it, clean eating can also be very time consuming – from both, a shopping point of view and a food prep point of view. Purple Carrot helps make things a little easier, while allowing you stay true to your lifestyle.
What Is It?
The concept of meal kit delivery isn’t really anything new, but what sets Purple Carrot apart is the idea that all of the meal kits are plant based. So you can scroll around, check out plenty of menu options, and know that most of them are going to be right in your wheelhouse. You can have meal kits delivered, and enjoy experimenting with new recipes and dinner ideas. Plant based doesn’t have to mean boring! And lately, that’s how so many of us feel when it comes to making dinner – bored. After a while, the same few recipes on repeat can definitely get a little stale.
You can easily get started with something simple and low key, like a one week delivery. Serving 2 or 4, some plans start as low as $9.99 per serving. This can be a great place to begin, even if you’re new to the plant based world. It take the guess work out, provides healthy options, and proves that clean eating doesn’t have to mean bland. Boxes like buffalo tempeh quinoa bowls with roasted peppers and dill sour cream, tamarind cauliflower with gingered fried rice and cashews, and roasted veggie nacho bowls with refried beans and cashew queso are just a few of the examples that made us realize that there is some serious variety here, and we are impressed!
Simply choose a plan based on personal preference (High-Protein, Gluten-Free, Quick & Easy, or Chef’s Choice), or choose to customize your order every week. You do have some flexibility, so if you need to skip a week (or cancel altogether), that’s a-ok as well. They also feature breakfast, lunch and snack options if you’re looking to add a little something more. Once you choose a plan that works for you, you’ll receive a box complete with ingredients to get cooking good-looking. That being said, there are a select few kitchen staples that wouldn’t be included – like salt, pepper, oil, and non-dairy milk.
Here’s are a few of the recipes and snacks we’re dying to try:
- Roasted Vegetable Nacho Bowl. Veggies and Nachos? We’re in! – See It Here
- Potato Malai Kofta with Sautéed Spinach and Tomato Chutney – See It Here
- The Oat Chocolate Bar Bundle. We Love Chocolate – See It Here
On the other hand, if you’re looking to make someone else’s life a little easier (after all, food is love), you can snag a gift card and have meal kits sent to any one of your plant based pals or loved ones. Simply choose your preferred amount based on serving size and the number of dinners you’d like to have sent, and they’ll get an email letting them know the good news! We love gift ideas that bring people together. Lastly, their Share A Box referral program allows you to do just that – share the love. For every 4 orders a subscriber receives, they earn 1 free box to gift to someone new (a first time user). Have no fear, if the free box isn’t redeemed within 30 days, the credit is returned to the subscriber so they can pick someone else. Hey, you snooze, you lose.
Are There Promo Codes or Coupons?
Unfortunately we aren’t on the receiving end of any exclusive coupons or promo codes here. And like everyone else, we haven’t had any luck searching for any online. Anything we come upon seems to be invalid. That doesn’t mean there aren’t ways to save a little money if you’re looking to try these meal kits out. Any current discounts on boxes, or ways to save are always posted on their website – so your best bet is to check them out directly. As we sit here today, you can score $25 off your first box, and if you’re a student, that discount goes up to $35 off your first order. Their Share A Box referral program allows you, as a subscriber to gift a meal to someone after you’ve received four orders. Maybe you can get them to share?
