We are always looking for new meal plan ideas, especially ones that are healthy. Enter The Purple Carrot (TPC), a new meal kit delivery service that provides customers all the raw, pre-measured ingredients they need to cook healthy meals and snacks at home.
This includes meals that are fresh, organic, plant-based, dairy-free and non-GMO ingredients and are sourced locally directly from farms whenever possible. Not only fantastic for a vegan, these meal plans offer amazing recipes for anyone who wants to eat better.
In fact, this diet is in demand where 12 million Americans who consider themselves vegan or vegetarian, more than 33% of Americans want to incorporate more plant-based meals into their diets (source: Harris Interactive December, 2011).
We recently tested this out where we loved how this easy-to-use service provided us with pre-measured ingredients and recipe cards. How it starts is you can choose 4 delicious dinner options with new choices all the time. You pick the 2 you love most, and they will take care of the rest. And to make it even better, with each order, they also include the ingredients to make a healthy, delicious snack that you can nosh on all week – all for $59.
