Honest Splendid Spoon Review
What is Splendid Spoon?
Splendid Spoon is a vegan meal delivery service from New York that specializes in healthy breakfast smoothies and lunch soups or grain bowls. All foods are made from plant-based ingredients that contain no GMO, soy, or gluten, so you know you are doing your body good eating everything. In fact, everything is so good for you and so perfectly balanced that even though Splendid Spoon is not considered a diet, many people end up losing weight effortlessly.
Splendid Spoon was launched by Nicole Centeno in 2013. After suffering from eating disorders she became vegan during her pregnancy and later used her knowledge of biology, nutrition, and diet therapies to create her company with a mission to change the way you think about food. The company does not promise any weight loss and is not considered a diet. It really is a healthy relationship with food that nourishes you and speeds up your metabolism.
I love this diet because of large selection of meals, over 40 options and the fact that each meal is $9-13, which is not very cheap, but comparable to every meal at the restaurants. My main complaint is that there are no dinner options, because I would love to get dinners too, at least from time to time. But on the other hand, after eating so well all day, I can enjoy a dinner the way I want and eat everything I love. Splendid Spoon offers some amazing healthy dinner recipes online and I have used that option for inspiration and ideas more than once.
Splendid Spoon pays a lot of attention to healthy breakfast and that’s one area where many other food delivery companies lack options. I am always on the go in the morning, so having an easy healthy grab-and-go breakfast is amazing.
The program is designed to keep you healthy and weight loss just follows that notion, so yes, I was able to lose some weight all while feeling great and not dieting. All the soups have perfect calorie balance for me, so often times I feel full before even finishing the whole bowl.
Splendid Spoon has a loyal program with which you can get points every time you spend money. 100 points give you $5, which you can apply towards your purchase after you collect 25 points. Friend referral also gives you 25 points and $25 off your friend’s order.
There are 3 plans to choose from:
- Lunch (5 breakfasts)
- Breakfast and lunch (5 breakfasts and 5 lunches)
- Breakfast, lunch, and reset (5 breakfasts, 5 lunches, and one day plan to reset the digestive system)
Once you choose your plan and check out, you can then select your meal preferences. You can choose between 40 meals and change them every week. There is an option to select meals or flavors that you do not wish to get. You will get your meals frozen or refrigerated with plant-based recyclable insulation. FedEx brings orders on Wednesdays and Fridays. Grain and soup bowls can be refrigerated for 7 days or stay frozen for a month. Smoothies have “best by” dates. All orders include free shipping.
Breakfast smoothies and lunch bowls are 16 ounces each and full of nutrients and vitamins, so you will stay full. You can expect 3-5 new flavors every season and rotation of customer favorites on a weekly basis.
Optional Reset program delivers 5 soups for one day:
- Fennel Consomme with Lemon Peel and Dill
- Butternut Turmeric Soup with Sweet Potatoes and Nutmeg
- Parsnip Apple Puree with Celery Root and Cinnamon
- Cauliflower Potato Chowder with Navy Beans and Rosemary
- Pumpkin Pear Bisque with Hempseeds and Cardamom
If these don’t sound good to you, then I don’t know what would. And let me tell you – all of them were delicious!
While Splendid Spoon is subscription based, there are no limits on how many weeks you have to subscribe or when you want to cancel. You can prepay for a few weeks or pay every week. You can always change your preferences, just as long as you do that before the weekly cut-off day.
As Christmas is approaching, it is important to note that Splendid Spoon has great gift cards for anybody you love and who you think could benefit from the subscription:
- $65 Lunch plan
- $95 Breakfast and Lunch
- $135 Breakfast, Lunch, and Reset
Let’s take a look at available meals. You can choose from about 10 smoothies, 20 soups, and 5 Reset soups. The meals sound fancy and appetizing. Here are a few examples:
- Blueberry coconut smoothie with acai and cinnamon
- Strawberry goji smoothie with cashew butter and baobab powder
- Green Matcha smoothie with avocado and spirulina
- Aloo Gobi quinoa bowl with peas and cauliflower
- Brown rice taco bowl with black beans and salsa
- Tuscan white bean and tomato bowl with greens and fennel ragout
- Green split pea soup with tarragon and basil
- Garden minestrone with zucchini and basil
- Cumin sweet potato with cashews and cilantro
All the meals are rich in fiber, healthy fat, and plant protein. Smoothies are low in sugar. You can find nutritional facts and ingredients on every item. Every meal contains 80-200 calories.
In conclusion, I wish everybody could try Splendid Spoon and enjoy those healthy appetizing meals at least once in a while. They are good for body and mind while not harmful to any animals. I love plentiful of meal options and free shipping, and I enjoy the flexibility and no restrictions on cancelling. I wish there would be dinner options, but hopefully they are coming in the future. Other than that I love eating more plants and clean meals all week.
