At the start of a new year, people often make resolutions and set lofty personal goals—but if you feel like you deserve a reward just for surviving 2020, you’re not alone. This year, instead of promising yourself you’ll eat better, improve your cooking skills, or become more environmentally conscious, commit to being kinder to yourself. You can start by signing up for Simple Feast, a new service that delivers three plant-based meals directly to your doorstep each week.
If that sounds decadent, it is, but don’t feel guilty, because the meals are designed to be great for both your body and the planet. Simple Feast refers to this as being “good bad,” which sounds far more fun than simply being “good.” This food tastes amazing and feels like an indulgence, but it’s also healthy. (Eating better, cooking at home, and being eco-conscious just got a whole lot easier.)
The company put the word “feast” in their name for a reason. These aren’t one-bowl meals; they include multiple courses with recipes created by chefs from Michelin-starred backgrounds. A typical menu might include such mouthwatering delights as Pan-Fried Gnocchi in Creamy Mushroom Sauce, served with Warm Savoy Cabbage and Black Bean Salad with Roasted Pumpkin; Red Lentil Dal, served with Pan-Roasted Potatoes, Broccoli, Spinach, and Raita; or a Falafel and Spiced Garlic Flatbread, served with Cucumber-Carrot Salad, Hummus, Preserved Lemon Dressing, and Chili Paste.
The meal kits in each Simple Feast box are “choreographed” by the chefs. Each meal is labeled 1,2, or 3, so you can eat them in the recommended order, or mix them up if you’re feeling rebellious.
From corn ribs with vegan chipotle cream to dumplings with sesame seeds and teriyaki sauce, the creative cuisine reflects a global influence that will excite your taste buds. The recipes are adapted to celebrate the Southern California terroir and take advantage of fresh, seasonal ingredients sourced from local farms. Sourcing ingredients locally has the added benefit of helping Simple Feast keep their carbon footprint small.
Simple Feast is on a mission to make the world a better place, and they see plant-based meals as the easiest way to improve our ecosystem, planet, and personal health. To encourage people to eat more plants, they’re focused on creating meals that are as tempting and tasty as possible. With these satisfying, sustainable vegan meal kits, you will never have to compromise on taste.
Each Simple Feast dinner is ready in under 20 minutes, so you can spend less time prepping meals and more time feasting on them. Set up your first delivery and make 2021 your most delicious year yet.
