For those who have sophisticated tastes, are health conscious, don’t have a lot of time and have the green to spend, services like Fresh Direct are a good option. But have you ever wished you could have the same kind of service delivering delicious vegan meals to your door? You aren’t alone. In fact, Beyoncé and her trainer Marco Borges had this same thought too. Now they’ve decided to do something about it. The pair just launched a vegan meal delivery service called 22 Days Nutrition. The name stems from the idea that it takes 21 days to end a bad habit such as eating a poor diet. Meals range from $9.76 to $16.50 per plate and are delivered once per week. You can get the one, two or three meal-a-day option. Each one is free of meat or any animal products as well as being gluten-free, soy-free, non-GMO and organic. Beyoncé and famous rapper hubby Jay-Z ate this exact diet during the winter of 2013. Since then she’s been dabbling in veganism and vegetarianism, and says she aims to try and incorporate more plant-based foods in her diet overall. At the press release she said, “All you have to do is try. If I can do it, anyone can.”
A recent poll showed that many people who try a vegetarian or vegan diet don’t stick with it. They either don’t invest enough time in how to maintain it in a healthy way, or they fall into a rut and lose interest. It takes a lot of planning and preparation. The good news is vegetarians have less heart disease, less inflammation, carry less body weight and live longer, so all of that preparation pays off. There is also an environmental tie-in. Raising animals for the meat industry leads to a lot of extra carbon in the atmosphere. It is becoming easier to lead a vegetarian lifestyle. Many restaurants are carrying such options nowadays. Still, without adequate support and time for research and planning, cooking exciting, nutritious, vegetarian dishes at home can be daunting, especially when you are just starting out. 22 Days Nutrition gives you great options that you don’t have to conjure out of thin air. Some of the dishes on the menu include an almond blueberry breakfast loaf, curried fried rice and vegetables, sesame cabbage lentil bowl and ratatouille pasta with pesto.
