I recently found out about Hungryroot, a company that specializes in plant-centric food delivery which allows you to mix and match ingredients to create very quick and healthy foods. They have clean-ingredient foods paired with instructions to make simple combinations with veggie noodles, grains, lean proteins, and plant-based sauces.
They’re complete enough that you can grab a combination and ten minutes later you’ll have dinner. But there’s loads of room to customize them and add your own take.
I was able to snag a couple of weeks of food from Hungryroot to share my take. My goals were to find a healthy way to plan out meals and receive food deliveries but not be stuck in hardcore cooking and rigid recipes.
Here are a few of my favorite meal combinations from Hungryroot, though you can change out the base, the sauces, the toppings, and more to make it your own. You can also go into their site to choose the foods you want or let them choose your options based on your chosen preferences and dietary choice (vegetarian, gluten-free, etc.)
If you want to try Hungryroot out, I have a promo code that will get you $50 off your first two weeks ($25 off 2 boxes)! Use promo code 25OFF2OFFBEAT to give it a try.
Note that I’m a Hungryroot advocate and will receive credit if you order through them. Thank you!
This soup was a complete meal in one package. Most of the foods are separated so you can combine them into full meals but they also have cookies, oats, and soups like these that you can toss into a bag to take to work or have as an even easier meal. This was, for me, one of the tastiest options. I toasted up some bread for dipping and made it into a dinner!
I LOVED the taste of the plantain linguini and added some additional wilted spinach and kale to round it out. They aren’t too heavy on meats at Hungryroot, which I like, but you do still have the option of grabbing something like chicken sausage or salmon if you’re a meat/fish eater.
Though they’re especially great if you’re a vegetarian or vegan as their non-meat proteins are abundant. Think tofu, chickpeas, yuba noodles, lentils, veggie burgers, and even barbecue jackfruit.
The cookie mixes were date-based which made them deliciously sweet and easy to make. Just roll and bake. Or eat the dough straight from the container!
The flatbreads came in a pack of three which meant I could make multiple meals or use them in other wraps or flatbreads. I paired them with some baked cheddar bites and a moscow mule.
This was another grab-and-go meal which made things really easy. I added some pepitas and walnuts to make it extra filling, but it was a bonus since it tasted great as-is.
I love me some green onions so I liberally added those.
Not everything is super low calorie or completely clean, but it’s leaps and bounds ahead of most similar food delivery options. If your household is solidly meat eating this type of meal delivery probably isn’t for you. But if you’re up for going mostly plant-based and looking for a ton of ease in your cooking process, this is ideal.
I could absolutely see making Hungryroot a part of my weekly meal planning if it was just me eating since I could take a small box and turn it into almost a full week of meals. And the best part is that I wouldn’t have to worry too much about avoiding processed foods since this is all pretty clean and fresh.
And of course, don’t forget the promo code if you’d like to try it for yourself…
