What is Veestro?
Have you heard of Veestro meal delivery? This meal prep service is a forward-thinking company started by a brother and sister team who believe that a healthy, “home cooked” meal should be a daily indulgence. Although the meals aren’t exactly cooked in your home, Veestro’s delivery service makes eating quality, healthy, balanced meals one of the simplest things you’ll do in your day. Oh, and I did I mention that all the meals are plant based?
Vegetarian meal delivery?
What sets Veestro apart from the competition is not only that their meals are of high quality but everything this service makes is vegetarian. Don’t worry, I’ve tried several of the meals and we can honestly say you won’t miss the meat. And you can feel good about helping the environment while you enjoy your dinner. Nothing like some altruism warm fuzzies to make your meal taste better. The meals are also organic, preservative-free and come in eco-friendly packaging. All this, and the meal prices start around $10.
The Veestro meals are well thought out and well-rounded. Each contains a protein, veggies and a starch, the way a classic, American dinner would. Only instead of having a steak or pork chop as the centerpiece, these meals offer plant based proteins. Entrees can be ordered a la carte or in a meal plan. There are breakfast options as well as lunch and dinner foods. Choices include easily portable but flavorful foods like a chile-spiked South Indian coconut curry, a pesto pizza, veggie empanadas and Shepherdless Pie.
But to me the most important element of this food delivery is the technology used to seal the environmentally packages. It helps keep them remarkably fresh. In fact, the meals really do taste like they’d been freshly made. (And I accidentally left one in my freezer for six weeks. Once defrosted, it still tasted like a comforting, home cooked meal. On the website, it says they can be stored, frozen for as much as eight weeks.)
One word of warning, I did find that heating instructions didn’t always go exactly to plan. In most cases, the entrees seemed to need a little extra time to cook. However, directions are simple and the food is fresh, vibrant and always interesting.
Veestro offers the option of ordering a la carte meals or bundles based on your needs. For example, are you trying to lose a pound or two? Or do you need a gluten-free meal plan? The bundles are tailored to your needs. The also accommodate Kosher and nut free diets.

We originally posted this review of Veestro meal delivery in November of 2014, shortly after its launch. This food delivery has managed to remain strong in a market that gets more crowded every day. This company’s dedication to organic, preservative-free ingredients and their niche in plant-based, delivered meals have kept them at the top of the game. We loved this service’s somewhat funky, meatless meal selection. And we were surprised by the quality and flavor of these ready-made meals. That’s why we’ve gone back and updated this article, in hopes of reminding you that this option for a cooking-free, healthy meal exists.
