Editor's Note: I was never a healthy eater, even though I always wanted to be. I just didn't have time to develop nutritious dinner plans, shop for all the ingredients, and figure out how to cook them. While venting at work, my colleague recommended Splendid Spoon.
When my colleague told me about Splendid Spoon, I was intrigued; a ready-to-eat meal delivery service that sends wholesome soups, grain bowls, noodles, and smoothies right to your doorstep? Healthy eating couldn't sound more convenient! On top of that, he mentioned that each meal is vegan, gluten-free, GMO-free, and low in sugar.
Right when I got home from work, I went on Splendid Spoon's site to gather more information. Their meals looked delicious, but somehow I was sure they would taste bland. Plus, could their soups and smoothies actually fill me up? I doubted it.
Another thing I realized was that Splendid Spoon is a subscription service, and I had some bad experiences with those in the past. I was locked into a plan once for months, and they didn't stop charging my card. It took me a tremendous amount of time and nerves to get out of it, and I swore to myself, never again!
But as I was scrolling down, I found out that Splendid Spoon's subscription is very flexible. You can choose how many meals you'd like to receive each week, and you can easily skip a week or cancel at any time.
Reading their 5-star reviews was what convinced me to give it a try. People seemed to love Splendid Spoon and some even reported losing weight. I signed up for the Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner + Reset plan, which means 5 smoothies, 5 bowls, 5 noodle bowls, and 1 full-day reset that cost only $8 per meal.
When I received my first box, I was surprised that no meal prep was needed. All I had to do was heat the bowls and soups.
I don't remember the last time I had breakfast until I tried Splendid Spoon's Coffee Frappé Smoothie, packed with antioxidants, superfoods, and healthy fats that kept me satiated until lunch. Man, it was tasty! Plus, it kept me from drinking 3 cups of coffee in the morning!
The bowls and soups were perfect for taking to work. The first day I had their Vegetable Bolognese Grain Bowl, which was rich in flavor and a way better alternative to my usual slice of pizza. Later that day, I heated Splendid Spoon's Green Tomatillo Chili Soup, which I enjoyed just as much – not to mention its mouthwatering smell! Some of my work colleagues even came over to ask about it.
When I got home, I had the Creamy Mushroom and Spinach Noodles. I'm usually not the biggest fan of mushrooms, but this meal wasn’t bad at all. And I was saving lots of money on UberEats.
Splendid Spoon's meals filled me up without making me feel bloated. After a few days, I felt more energized and focused - not to mention the confidence I gained by finally ditching junk food and frozen meals altogether! My skin got better too. I feel overall healthier, and there's this new-me feeling that even my mom pointed out the last time I saw her.
I'm so-so happy that I gave Splendid Spoon a try. Living a healthy lifestyle has never been easier.
If you need help to say goodbye to unhealthy eating habits, give Splendid Spoon a try! You can thank me later!
