Note: GIVE Kitchen have now closed down.
Give Kitchen Vegan Delivery Service recently got in touch and asked if I’d like to try out their range. Absolutely! I love to cook, but sometimes it’s nice to have life a little easier and let someone else prepare fresh, healthy food for you. It also expands your range of go-to meals, introduces you to new flavours and, frankly, gives you a bit of a break.
I’m a vegetarian, but since doing Veganuary (going vegan for January) last year, I’ve eaten a lot more egg and dairy-free meals. I’m planning to do Veganuary again next month, so getting a week of plant-based meals from Give Kitchen was a great precursor.
Give Kitchen vegan delivery service sends fresh, natural, plant based lunches, main meals and bliss ball truffles direct to your door and, amazingly, they donate a meal to someone in need for every meal sold.
For each week, you get a lunch and main meal, as well as a truffle. They arrive vacuum sealed for freshness in a box lined with gel packs, ready to put into the fridge. Then for each meal you just have to heat them up. They suggest heating them in a pan, as I did, but you could also use a microwave. I simply tipped them into a frying pan to heat for a few minutes and, presto, a quick nutritious, flavour-packed meal. The meals are very generous and often I only ate half or shared it with my husband.
We enjoyed a range of meals, from sweet and sour tofu with garlic pak choi to garlic and herb falafel a with parsley quinoa and veggies. They were all delicious and flavourful. I lost weight, felt energised and it was nice to spend a week without having to consider what to eat – just browse through the packages in the fridge.
All of the meals from Give Kitchen are homemade by professional plant-based chefs with organic ingredients. They have a variety of beans, vegetables, grains, nuts, seeds, herbs and spices, with global influences.
The luxury truffles have between 100 – 150 calories, while the lunches and main meals range from 400 – 600 calories.
Each meal is balanced for an appropriate amount of protein, fiber, fat and nutrients while staying low in salt and sugar.
The 8 day package for the Give Kitchen vegan delivery service costs £88, with the 22 day vegan challenge costing £199. They say that it takes 22 days to form a habit, so this would be a great way to transition to a vegan lifestyle, while learning about the sort of meals you can go on to create yourself.
Give Kitchen is part of Give 2040 Ltd and The Give Foundation, whose purpose is to eradicate world hunger, poverty and disease by 2040. A noble cause behind the reason Give Kitchen believes in 1 for 1 giving: for every meal sold, one is donated.
Give Kitchen have also launched their 30 Day Vegan Resolution
Their aim is to encourage people to go vegan for 30 days to save animals, help the planet, lose weight and get healthy throughout January. The package will be available to order from from 21st December until the end of January. Perfect for Veganuary, it includes 60 vegan meals for a lunch and dinner each day
30 luxury vegan truffles and UK delivery, as well as helpful tips, advice and motivation for £298.97.
