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.
