According to the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, vegans are less likely to develop heart disease, cancer, diabetes, or high blood pressure than meat-eaters are. Because of this, more and more people are taking on the Vegan diet.
However, buying and preparing Vegan meals can be difficult, expensive and tedious – that’s where VegReady comes in. VegReady is a new Kickstarter company that delivers plant-based, ready-to-eat meals to your door monthly.
“When you’re in a hurry but need a healthy meal, VegReady is the answer,” founder Mark Perlmutter says. “The future of convenience food is plant-based and personalized.”
VegReady meals do not require refrigeration, defrosting or cooking, and only contain natural ingredients, with no GMO’s or preservatives. The meals, containing “medicinal herbs and exotic flavors,” are from four international cuisines: South American, Middle Eastern, Southeast Asian and India and Pakistan.
All meals can be stored in a cabinet or drawer, and just need to be opened when ready to eat. VegReady also offers personalized meals where customers can customize what they like, and they can match the meals to their own biochemistry with the DNA algorithm.
“Our Mission is to help millions of flexitarians eat more plant-based meals by offering the most convenient, delicious and affordable healthy meals on the market,” its website says.
I tried a VegReady snack myself; the snack I got was the mango and jalapeño quinoa snack, and although quinoa usually doesn’t appeal to me, I did enjoy it. The quinoa came in a small container with a mango, jalapeño-like salsa in a separate container on top. I mixed the two together, and the smell itself got my tastebuds excited – it smelled like sweet peppers and rice!
I was skeptical about the room temperature concept of VegReady, but this snack tasted great after sitting in my purse all morning. Plus, after finishing it, I was satisfied until lunchtime.
While many may scrutinize a Vegan diet for its lack of nutrients, VegReady assures customers that they will provide everything you need to be healthy. Plant protein, fiber and minerals are all included in the foods, without the negative components of meat such as cholesterol and saturated fat.
Not only is this diet good for you, but it’s good for the environment too. Mass meat and poultry production have a huge negative effect on the environment, so VegReady improves your carbon footprint with every meal you eat.
The Kickstarter launched on Nov. 30, and can be ordered at VegReady.com. VegReady ensures you will love the meals, or your money back.
