Hungry Root

“We started using Chip and Kale a couple of months ago. EVERYTHING is vegan! So good and affordable! Meals are all half an hour or less to prepare. Everything comes frozen, pre-cut and is just so easy to prepare. It is the least expensive, even with the delivery fee, and you can find 10-15% off coupon codes online. It is not a subscription so you can order as often or as little as you like. The menu is set weekly so you don’t even have to spend time searching for meals you like (you can double up on something if you don’t like a particular one).” My referral code for 15% off your first purchase is

“I love HungryRoot! You can customize vegan, GF, soy free, etc. I love that most of it comes prepped (veggies chopped) which means I can throw together a meal in 10-15 minutes.”

“I’ve tried purple carrot and green chef. I love green chef a lot! The meals are always delicious and very creative. When we tried Purple carrot last year we thought that the meals were pretty basic and not as good as GC. We are giving them another try though and loved the tempeh khao soi we had last night. If you want to give GC a try, this link will take $55 off your first box making it only $25 for 3 meals! Each meal has 2 servings.”
