In 2008 the company Vegin’ Out was created, they rush out weekly deliveries of 100% freshly cooked vegan meals to their customers across the country. They provide vegan meal delivery in Los Angeles California, but they do also deliver nation-wide in the USA. The great thing about them is they provide meals that have a health focused theme – making vegan foods that are not only tasty, but are organic, free of preservatives and are usually low in fat or oil free.
Vegin’ Out – How it Works
Their services are perfectly ideal for people who are health conscious but are busy, and those with no time and energy to cook. After placing your order with them, they do the shopping, the meals are cooked from scratch by their vegan executive chef, and then send it off to you via Fed Ex and delivered right to your door.
One weekly vegan meal package comes with all the items on their menu for that week. Their menu includes three vegan 24oz entrees, four vegan 16oz side dishes, one 32ozvegan soup, and the order comes with five vegan cookies. Their menu items changes every week and substitution is allowed. For example, if you don’t like entree #1 and #2 but you like #3, you can choose to have three #3 entrees instead. You can only replace an entree with another entree, or a side dish with another side dish, the soup will be considered as a side dish.
Examples of Their Food:
Quantity of Food
Each entree, side dish and soup can yield about 3 servings. So if you order one weekly vegan meal package, you’ll get about 9 full meals, each meal will give you approximately 680 calories. You can place a single order, or a double order which includes twice of everything on the menu. By placing a double order, you get almost 10% in savings.
Ordering & Delivery of Food
Vegin’ Out delivers to all the states in the USA except for Alaska and Hawaii. They don’t deliver outside of the USA.
You can place your order over the phone or online at any time during the week. But the deadline for placing your orders is by Friday at 5pm Pacific for guaranteed delivery by Monday. If you end up placing your order after the deadline, then most likely the order will be rolled over and scheduled to the next Monday.
They also have an option for expedited delivery at an extra charge, you can just call in to request it.
People in Los Angeles and nationwide will receive their food deliveries every Monday, and those outside Los Angeles in Southern California will receive it on Tuesday. The food you receive can be customized to fit individual needs, such as gluten free options or omitting of foods for any allergies.
Their delivery guy comes to your house or office work place between the hours of 10am and 5pm on either Mondays or Tuesdays, depending on where you are. The package will be delivered and signature won’t be required. Food shipping is very safe because it comes in a vacuum sealed bag, and placed inside an insulated box with dried ice. The box should keep the food cool for up to about 4 hours, depending on how hot or cold it is outside.
You can opt for home delivery, or have it delivered to your office if you will be at work during delivery hours. Another option is to provide them with your own cooler box, and the food will be placed inside by the delivery guy. This will extend the cooling duration of the food.
