Sun Basket vs Splendid Spoon – available plans
Sun Basket offers its customers two different plans. There is a Classic Plan designed for two to four people and a Family Plan designed for four people. The Classic Plan also comes as a vegan plan. This plan provides three meals per week for two or four people. One of the attractions of Sun Basket is that you are not required to stick to your vegan plan. So if you are someone who is just trying to increase your intake of plant-based ingredients, you will also be able to choose from the rest of their menu.
Splendid Spoon offers its customers three different plans. You have the flexibility to mix and match different items from the various plans but not for your first order. There is a lunch plan that includes five grain or soup bowls and a breakfast + lunch plan, which also contains five breakfast smoothies. The final plan is the same as the breakfast + lunch plan but includes five light-soups that are part of a one-day reset.
