When I signed up for Purple Carrot, I tested all aspects of its service. Including what it’s like to edit or cancel an order. If you’d like to read about my entire Purple Carrot experience, I write about it in this full-length review.
Purple Carrot was one of the more interesting meal delivery services that I’ve tried. True, as a non-vegan eater, I wanted to be pampered with large menu options like what you find on Green Chef’s meal plan. I always appreciate it when a meal delivery service offers options for a wider variety of diets so that I can order foods with a friend or other members of my family, as well. Whatever your reasons for canceling your subscription to Purple Carrot are, here’s the full rundown on how to do that.
I can sum up the process in one word - easy.
Canceling your plan is so easy, you can do it without having to email or speak to anyone, even if you’ve signed up for the the cheapest Purple Carrot plan - that’s pretty unique compared to most other meal delivery services.
Simply go to your account settings, click change subscription status, and cancel your account.
The entire thing takes about 10 seconds. You can also choose to pause your subscription for up to ten weeks.
If you do want to cancel or pause your subscription, the deadline for making changes to your order is 11.59 pm EST the Tuesday before your next shipment is due. If you go beyond this timeline, you’ll be charged, and your order will be processed as usual.
Canceling your orders doesn’t mean that you have to go back to the old way of preparing your meals - dragging yourself to the grocery store, only to come home and find out that you forgot one or two ingredients to the meal you wanted to make. Then - boom! - out comes the takeout menu.
Don’t give up!
If Purple Carrot didn’t do it for you, I’ve got a few other meal delivery services to recommend.
Sun Basket offers mouthwatering meals that come ready to heat up and eat, or ingredients for meals in less than 30, 20, or even 15 minutes. This is a great option if you have a cramped schedule but still like to be involved with your meal prep. Sun Basket’s meal options provide menus for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and healthy snacks for easy and organic vegan eating.
Green Chef provides you with a mouthwatering menu of plant-powered recipes, and fresh, organic ingredients to put those meals together. You can order weekly, biweekly, or monthly, depending on your schedule and budget. All of the ingredients come in recyclable packaging, and they’re accompanied by Green Chef’s signature sauces and easy-to-follow instructions.
Veestro’s A La Carte, Chef’s Choice, and Weight Loss plans are carefully crafted to get you the best vegan cuisine for your busy lifestyle. Who needs frozen soy dogs when you can spoil yourself with colorful meals made from non-GMO ingredients, like the Portobello Steak Dinner, Pad Thai, and the Ultimate Veggie Wrap.
Veestro also offers a vegan spin on classic dinner-time favorites – a perfect compromise for anyone who’s just getting started with a plant-based diet.
Purple Carrot is an extremely convenient service, but the limited number of meals to choose from can get repetitive, even if the menu does offer an eclectic range of foods. There’s also only meal plans for 2 or 4 serving options. Whatever your reasons for canceling Purple Carrot, it’s a relief to know the process is fast and easy.
Luckily, you don’t have to give up on finding the right meal delivery service for your needs. For a wider variety of pre-cooked vegan meals, Veestro is your best bet. If you need even more options for how fast you want your meal prep to be, and a menu that suits other diets as well, then Sun Basket is the way to go.
Whether you’re a longtime vegan or new to the benefits of a plant-powered diet, it’s exciting to know there are meal delivery options for every palate, diet, and schedule. Happy eating!
