Since 2012, there have been many new arrivals in the meal kit delivery industry.  All Meal Kit delivery services are different, and all offer something unique.  Some better cater to specific dietary requirements, some focus on organic produce and some cater to families or singletons.  Today I am going to focus on the best meal kit delivery services for the vegetarian diet. I will examine the different meal kit companies with the most inspiring and practical solution for vegetarians.

What a vegetarian would look for in a vegetarian meal kit?

There are several kinds of vegetarian diets, but the most popular and the one I will be exploring for you today is the Lacto-Ovo vegetarian diet. This is a diet that is based on eating plant-based products, eggs and dairy products, such as milk, cheese and yogurt. This diet does not include any meat, poultry, seafood or fish.

If you are a vegetarian, you might be justified in thinking that few meal kit services will be able to provide you with a menu that appeals.  But it is good to know that there are several  meal kit services that understand the needs of this increasingly popular diet and way of life. There are definitely some tempting and comprehensive options out there for you.

Following are the best vegetarian meal kit services in my opinion:
