3 Reasons Why Meat Eaters Should Try Vegan Meal Delivery

Vegan meal delivery

Vegan and vegetarian lifestyles are on the increase, with 2.5 million people (12.1%*[1] of the population) in Australia now eating all or almost all vegetarian. You can see this growing interest in veganism all around us - from the explosion of dairy free milk alternatives in supermarkets to celebrity advocates and Netflix films like Cowspiracy. The previously radical lifestyle choice is becoming mainstream. This may sound crazy but we have many meat eaters that get involved with our vegan meal delivery, despite us having meat options on the menu. Now, we aren’t being preachy, and we’re not saying meat eaters should switch to being 100% vegan (unless they want to!). In fact, most of our team eat meat. But they regularly eat plant based lunches. We’ll tell you why..

Plant based meals can make you feel great 
Just take a look at our vegan meals – they are packed with rainbow colours. You know what that means? They are good for you! Packed with immunity boosting nutrients and ‘no nasties’ – ie no added preservatives, sugars or colours. Some people believe strongly in an ‘all or nothing’ mentality. But think of this – if the whole world ate vegan half the time, it would mean half the world was vegan 100% of the time! Now that sounds like you can have your cake (steak) and eat it too! 

Ultimately, we encourage people to do what makes them feel good inside and out. But if you’ve never tried eating a plant based diet, do you know how it makes you feel? For many, plant based eating gives a natural energy boost and cutting back on commonly bloating foods (meat and dairy) often results in a slimmer look and feel. We challenge you to try vegan eating for 2 weeks and seeing how it makes you feel! Can’t be bothered with the prep? We’ll do it for you with our vegan meal delivery

Many people feel great from a plant based diet but struggle with the restrictions and missing out on their favourite foods. Who says you can’t adopt a flexible diet where you predominantly plant based but eat meat and seafood much less? If you eat meat 3 times a day, ie 21/21 meals a week, why not try dinners only with meat – taking it down to 7/21. Or maybe you only eat meat on weekends and keep Monday to Friday as plant based? 

Research has shown that there are many health benefits that come with cutting meat, including a reduced risk of obesity, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and cancer, and the prospect of a longer life expectancy.

But what to cook…? 

Premade vegan meals take the hassle out of deciding what to cook
If you are looking to reduce your meat consumption, as one in three Australians are*[1], half the battle can be working out what to eat. Our veggie meal delivery packs are here to help! With our huge love of veg, our vegan food delivery bundle was one of our first creations! The key to enjoying plant based eating is to pack it full of flavour, which is why we focus on a variety of ingredients that complement each other and silky sauces to elevate the bowls to the next level! We know that preparing veg can be timing consuming, let us do it for you! Have your lunch prep sorted and make vegan eating easy as. Vegan delivered meals also allow you to try ingredients you may be unfamiliar with and gain the confidence to cook yourself at home. Have you heard of jackfruit? It is commonly used as a pulled pork substitute and takes on the flavour of sauces very well. It is super delicious! If you haven't tried our smoky jack nourish bowl, you might wish to give it a go!

Eat green for a green planet
Avoiding meat and dairy products is the single biggest way to reduce your environmental impact on the planet, according to the scientists behind a comprehensive analysis*[2] of the damage farming does to the planet. Animal agriculture is not only the biggest contributor to greenhouse gases, but also negatively impacts the world in other ways, including; global acidification, eutrophication, land use, water use and mass extinction of wildlife. “A vegan diet is probably the single biggest way to reduce your impact on planet Earth,” said Joseph Poore, at the University of Oxford, UK, who led the research. “It is far bigger than cutting down on your flights or buying an electric car,” he said, as these only cut greenhouse gas emissions.
