What I Didn’t Like 

  • Confusing shipping information  

  • Bulk ordering meals may not be for everyone


Veestro Overview

Even with the awards Veestro has won, I was skeptical about just how tasty its frozen, pre-cooked vegan meals could be. True, I was excited about the fact that it uses all organic, preservative-free ingredients, but my standards were high. I was looking for a meal delivery service that provided the option for a weight loss program, with tasty meals that I could actually enjoy. In the course of trying out Veestro’s meal delivery service, I was surprised at what I found.

How Veestro Works 

Diving right in, Veestro works a little differently from other meal delivery services. Firstly, it offers you a choice of either 10, 20, or 30 meals for your order. This is far beyond the standard two or three a week offered by other providers.

Next, you choose your meals. You can also narrow these down using the dietary preferences box: 

In fact, the dietary preferences on offer might just surprise you. his was the first time I’d ever seen kosher as an option!

You’ll then need to choose how often you’d like your delivery, and the price you’ll pay changes according to your selection (more on that in a moment). 

You then fill in the usual personal details and pay. Unfortunately, you can currently only pay by credit card. What if I don’t want to use my credit card for this kind of purchase? I’d have liked to have seen a PayPal option (like Purple Carrot), or even a GPay option (like Factor 75).

Veestro Prices

Veestro is one of the more affordable meal delivery services on the market, especially for one offering specialty plans like gluten-free, vegan, and weight-loss plans. 

While it depends on the plan you choose, prices can be as low as Price: Missing Product veestro per serving (on the A La Carte plan), and as high as $11.70 per portion (on the five-day weight loss plan). That's a pretty good value for pre-cooked meals.

When you compare Veestro to providers like Purple Carrot, you have much more choice for less money. For example, Purple Carrot meals start at Price: Missing Product purple-carrot per portion, but you only have the choice of two or four-person plans, and two or three meals a week. Even then, you have to cook them yourself.

When I compare Veestro to another diet-friendly meal kit, Freshology, it’s a different story. For three meals five days a week at Freshology, I'd be paying $9.57 a meal, totaling $143.59 per week, plus $9.99 shipping. At Veestro, that same set up (even with free shipping) would cost me $175.50, which is considerably more expensive.

But that's not all. Veestro has different pricing options based on the frequency of your meal delivery and the level of commitment you’re comfortable with. You can choose a one-time, all-in-one-go delivery (for a slightly higher price per portion) or a recurring delivery: 

If you click on the delivers every 2 weeks dropdown, you'll see you have even more options. 

This is the first time I’ve seen such flexible delivery options – and I’ve reviewed dozens of meal kit delivery services.

Veestro Menu

I found many aspects of Veestro unconventional. It has around 50 meals a week to choose from, which can be filtered to your requirements. These are divided into entrees and breakfast – there are seven breakfast options alone to choose from. 

It’s important to note, however, that these options never change. You have the same 50-odd meals to choose from each week. Even so, I was impressed at the range

Veestro has all sorts of cuisine, even though it’s all vegan. I saw Asian recipes, American fare, Chinese, Italian, Middle Eastern, and even Kosher! As I mentioned earlier, this was the first time I’d seen a kosher filter on a meal delivery service, and I was impressed. Sure, it might be easier to make plant-based food kosher, but other vegan providers, like Sunbasket or Purple Carrot, don’t have the label. 

Some users have grumbled online that there’s nothing making each dish authentic, the Morrocan-inspired dish isn't all that Morrocan, for example. But I think that’s a bit unfair. Without using any meat or fish, it's pretty hard to make certain cuisines completely authentic. 

Having said that, I was surprised at how non-veggie-centered each meal was. Veestro relies heavily on meat substitutes, which I’m personally okay with, but not everyone might be. It also boasts 96% organic ingredients, which I appreciated. 

I chose a 20-meal box and went for a taste of everything, including:

  • Poached Mushroom Wrap 

  • Turkish Meatballs

  • Portobello Steak Dinner

...among others.

Veestro Delivery 

With all the flexibility of how frequently you want your Veestros meals delivered, you won't be able to choose a delivery date. In fact, you won't even be told directly when it’ll arrive. For that information, you'll need to visit the Shipping and Delivery times page and find out for yourself. 

You’ll find this color-coded map. Note the key explaining the color code. 

You then have to work out the time and day your order is likely to arrive, based on your state’s color. It's not the most straightforward system that I’ve seen.

So for me, based in California (which is in a 1-day zone), placing an order on Sunday means my order will arrive on Wednesday or Thursday the following week. That’s not how I’m used to doing things when ordering from a meal kit service. Plus, surely a 1-day delivery should mean I get it Monday (or maybe even Tuesday). Confusing on many levels. 

Next up, I had the option to either receive my entire order as a one-off delivery for a slightly higher price per portion, or as a subscription with auto-delivery every week, two weeks, or every month. 

I really like the flexibility of the delivery options, but was super confused trying to work out when the order would arrive. Wouldn't it have been easier to give me an auto-generated tracking code or something, Veestro?  

Well, I did eventually receive a tracking code. But only after I'd completed my order. I could have saved myself a lot of time and hassle trying to work out delivery times if I knew that upfront.

Veestro Unboxing 

As a pre-cooked meal kit delivery service, every part of Veestro’s delivery is recyclable, from the big cardboard box to the cardboard sleeve and plastic packaging. Believe it or not, this is pretty unusual in the meal delivery world, and I was impressed. 

With your fully recyclable packaging, you’ll find your meals and that’s about it! Your meals are packed in dry ice to keep them fresh and all the heating instructions are listed on the cardboard sleeve of each meal so no need for extra info.


Favorite Veestro Meals

While I’m not a vegan, I appreciate vegan food, and I wasn't disappointed here. I have a soft spot for meal delivery services that don't require me to cook at all. All I needed to do is heat up each meal in the microwave, and there are instructions for heating up in the oven or on the stove, too. 

Having said that, I did expect more healthy, vegan food. What's on offer here is more like the vegan version of standard comfort food

Other vegan meal kit services, like Sunbasket and Green Chef, really go to town to provide plant-centric vegan meals. Veestro’s approach is more to add the vegetables as a secondary feature. This is clear from the relatively small portion of vegetables in each meal. 

Each of the meals has a label wrapped around the plastic box they come in, telling you what's in the meal, and how to heat it up. 

I was a bit worried that the combination of plant-based ingredients and microwaving would cause the food to lose its taste, but I found each meal to be flavorful and interesting enough to eat

As with any microwaveable meal kit, there’s a little bit of a sacrifice when it comes to flavor and texture – after all, you're not cooking from scratch. But I’m happy to say, this wasn't very noticeable with Veestro. 

Veestro Customer Service

Veestro has an email, online form, and phone number, all available Monday-Friday, 8 am-5 pm PT. When I called on a Monday morning, I was put through to a customer support representative within 30 seconds and found her to be efficient, friendly, and helpful. 

There’s also an FAQ section on the Veestro site. It looks a little overwhelming, but it’s actually pretty detailed.

There’s no easy search function, so you'll need to either scan through the whole thing or search for your query using the CTRL+F button (or Command+F on macs) to find what you want. I couldn’t find what I was looking for, which is why I called the customer support phone line instead. 

With Veestro, there’s also the option to pause your deliveries if you want and it’s easy to cancel your subscription altogether. I tested out that process for you, as well, and I wrote about it in this blog post.

Alternatives to Veestro

Have you gotten through this review wondering, if Veestro offers this much, what other options are out there that might suit my needs even better? Well, if it’s more of a vegetarian or vegan-friendly meal kit that you need, HelloFresh’s meal plans provide you with fresh ingredients and fun recipes to put together delicious meals. While they have a big selection to suit other diets, you can filter through their options to find vegan dishes. 

Purple Carrot’s service is an exclusively vegan meal kit service that is extremely popular for their fun recipes and quality ingredients. With meals in under 30 minutes, you really learn what it’s like to cook healthy vegan food, without all the guesswork. 

The Bottom Line

Veestro’s no-cook, vegan meals is an interesting concept that delivers exactly what it promises. The flexibility of the meal plans goes above and beyond compared to other vegan meal delivery services, and the unique selection of dietary preferences you can choose from is definitely beneficial.

Unlike other vegan providers, Veestro focuses more on meat substitutes than highlighting vegetables and alternative ingredients. Veestro tries hard to emphasize the meat substitutes vegans might miss, and that's fine, but I know it won’t be for all vegans and vegetarians.

At the end of the day, with good pre cooked vegan food, at a relatively cheap price and quick delivery, you can't go wrong!


How much does Veestro cost?

Veestro is definitely one of the more affordable options for prepared meals. The price you pay depends on how many portions you order. That can be anywhere from 10-30. As usual, the more you order, the cheaper the cost of each meal. So, if you order 10 meals, you’ll pay from $11.70 a portion, but if you stock up and max out the 30 meal option, the price drops to $9.90 a portion. 

One bonus of Veestro is that shipping is always free with auto deliveries, which is not a perk you get with all meal delivery services.

Is Veestro vegan?

Yes, Veestro is a completely plant-powered meal delivery service that provides pre-cooked meals made from over 96 percent organic ingredients. 

As well as being vegan, Veestro also offers nut-free, gluten-free soy-free, high-protein and low-calorie meals. If you keep kosher and you’ve always wanted to try out a meal delivery service but never found one to meet your needs, stop the search! Veestro also offers some kosher vegan meal options.

Are Veestro meals frozen?

Veestro’s pre cooked meals arrive directly to your door frozen (packed in dry ice). You can keep them for up to 8 weeks in the freezer or defrosted for 3-5 days in the fridge. When you want to cook them, they can be heated up in the microwave, on the stove or in the oven.

How do you cancel your Veestro subscription?

Veestro makes it beyond simple to cancel your plan and it can all be done directly from your account. All you need to do is click “Manage my subscription,” then hit “Cancel my subscription” and you’re all done. Like every meal delivery service, you need to be aware of the fine print. 

Learn about that in this short How to Cancel Veestro blog post. If you’re on the hunt for a vegan alternative and you want fresh, quick and easy, take a look at our Splendid Spoon review. You’ll see that this company offers a wide variety of smoothies, soups and salad bowls. 

If you want to be more involved in cooking the food you eat, Purple Carrot has a nourishing, all-vegan meal kit with easy-to-cook dishes that celebrate plant-based eating.
