This paleo- and vegetarian-focused company offers subscription-based meals with vibrant tastes perfect for health nuts and those wishing to shed a few pounds. Meals are delivered fully cooked in recyclable containers with calories and ingredients listed on the packaging. All that’s required on your end is stovetop or microwave reheating.
TASTE TEST: In this case, one need not sacrifice quality for convenience. We devoured Origin’s excellent Korean black beans and kimchi, paired with carrots, cabbage and pears and served over rice. The result was a flavorful and tangy lunch option under 300 calories. And the “Winner Winner Porto Dinner” lives up to its name. It’s a perfect balance of Brussels sprouts and portobello mushrooms with creamy sweet potatoes and butternut squash, all topped with a cranberry sauce that adds needed zest. These options are just as good as what one would consume at a local vegan hotspot.
