We've all heard of meal plans. They're all graciously delivered to our door, making us feel like kids at Christmas all over again. Some of them are pre-packaged meals, while others give you the ingredients so you can cook the meal yourself. Both are equally awesome, however, most of them lack vegan and vegetarian friendly options, making veggies everywhere feel very neglected.
That's why I was thrilled to partner with Veestro to experience my very first meal plan! Their meals are 100% vegan, meaning they're suitable for almost anyone with a special diet. Luckily, you don't have to sacrifice taste or flavor, meaning even carnivores can indulge!
While Veestro specializes in vegan cuisine, their meals are for anyone wanting to start living a healthier lifestyle.
Their 21 Day "Yes I Can" kickstart plan provides you with 21 meals and 6 juices, so if you're spreading it out equally, you should have one meal a day. Just one Veestro meal is jam-packed with veggies and protein, so you don't have to stress out about getting the nutrients you need throughout the day.

Despite the fact that I'm already a vegetarian with vegan tendencies, I actually unintentionally lost weight on my 21 day journey! I imagine if you add a healthy diet + exercise to your Veestro challenge, you'll lose even more!

Here's a sample menu for their regular 21 Day Kickstart plan: (they also offer gluten-free plans too!)
All of your meals will come in labeled TV-dinner style boxes, so you can conveniently store your meals in your freezer.
It's important that you read the heating instructions on each and every meal. All of them require different temperatures and cooking styles. For example, they might suggest you cook certain meals in the oven for desired crispiness, but it'll still work in the microwave.
It's also important that you check to make sure your meal is fully cooked before turning your oven off and diving in! Every oven is different, and there were quite a few times when I took it out too early and the inside was still cold. I learned to test it out first and then pop it in a few more minutes before taking a bite.
The meals are perfect for anyone on-the-go. They can be taken to work, used a meal prep, or cooked after a busy day out and about.
My three favorite meals were the thai chick'n stew, the breakfast burrito, and the golden chickpea stew! All three of them had such a unique flavor profile that I just couldn't get enough of. I was so surprised that Veestro managed to master Indian, Mexican, and Thai food!

While Veestro can be used as a way to lose weight, eat healthier, or transition to a plant-based diet, a lot of people use Veestro just because their food tastes delicious!
And good news for you: you can use the code PINK20 to get 20% off your Veestro order! If you decide to take the plunge and try it, please let me know what you think. I'm already addicted and I can't wait to try more of their meals.
