Food Quality and Ingredients

The Splendid Spoon program is the culmination of over five years of diet and fasting research and lots of taste tasting. Although the ingredients aren’t all organic, this meal delivery company is dedicated to  using only Non-GMO fruits and vegetables with superior taste. Blending nutrient dense ingredients into smoothies and soups actually makes it easier for your body to absorbs the nutrition. It also requires less energy to digest which allows your body to heal and regenerate faster.

What’s in the box?

Splendid Spoon delivers frozen soups and smoothies in recyclable packaging. The boxes, plastic bottles, and soup pints are 100% recyclable. When you get your first Splendid Spoon box full of soups and smoothies you’ll notice how their mindfulness philosophy extends to their packaging. Soups and smoothies come individually wrapped with motivational messages that encourage you to practice meditation and gratitude. This meal delivery service’s main goal is to inspire people to be more mindful of what the eat and how they eat it.

You’ll also receive a brochure in your box with a meal plan, weekly meditation guide, and more. Besides fueling your body with foods that are actually good for you, Splendid Spoon wants to encourage customers to take a moment to be thankful for their meals before eating them. Food culture these days is designed around a rushed lifestyle. Most people don’t pay attention to what they’re putting in their bodies, let alone take time to stop to be thankful. Splendid Spoon joined the grab and go food trend, but with a healthy twist. And they believe that practicing gratitude is even healthier.

Recipes and Cooking Skills Required

splendid spoon recipes and cooking skills needed

Hate cooking, but still want healthy meals you can enjoy at home without ordering in? Splendid Spoon is the perfect meal delivery service to try. You don’t need any cooking experience to enjoy all of their tasty and nutrient dense meals. The only prep involved is heating up your soups for lunch or when you’re on the whole foods cleanse. But if heating up soup still sounds like too much effort for you, you’re in luck. The soups are designed to be delicious both hot and cold. You even have the option of having soups delivered in convenient drink bottles so you can enjoy them on the go.

While Splendid Spoon doesn’t advertise their meals as weight loss solutions, it’s likely you’ll lose a small to significant amount of weight on their meal plans, depending the state of your current diet. Instead of focusing on weight loss, Splendid Spoon focuses on crowding your diet out with plant based nutrients. Believe it or not, the recipes are filling. Although eating a bagel  for breakfast has a lot more calories than a Splendid Spoon smoothie, you’re likely to feel hungrier earlier when you choose the bagel. Why? Splendid Spoon smoothies are packed with nutrition and nutrients actually keep your body satisfied for longer. Reviewers noted that they felt full longer and didn’t crave snacks between Splendid Spoon meals.

Examples of meals offered for breakfast, lunch, and on the cleansing program include: a raspberry cacao smoothie with coconut and rose water, chickpea harissa soup with cauliflower and currants, and a masala khichiri harvest bowl with okra and spinach.

The soup cleanse costs $65 for 5 meals and is meant to be done over the course of one day.

Splendid Spoon also offers the Program 2.0 plan and the 1 month reset plan. Here’s a breakdown of what’s included in both and what the programs are best for.

The Program 2.0: This plan is designed to help anyone reach their health and wellness goals. It’s supports weight loss and will help you look and feel your best. It’s a continuous plan for anyone dedicated to eating plant based meals for breakfast and lunch and doing a one day soup cleanse once a week. You’re encourage to eat whatever you want for dinner, knowing that you’ve already taken care of your nutritional needs for the day. You’re also encouraged to take one day a week as a “cheat day” so that you don’t feel too restricted by the meal plan.

This plan costs $135 a week and includes: 5 breakfasts, 5 lunches, and a one day soup cleans (which includes 4 drinkable soups and 1 harvest bowl). You can choose your delivery day and pick your weekly meals from over 40 different recipes.

After finishing the 1 month reset plan, customers are automatically enrolled in the Program 2.0 to maintain results.

Final Verdict

Splendid Spoon is a convenient meal delivery service if you’re interested in including more healthy, plant based meals in your diet. It’s also great to use when you want to try a whole foods cleanse or do a 1 month diet reboot. It’s best for singles or roommates and not really suitable for families.

This meal deliver service is expensive compared to other services, especially the one day cleanse which costs $65 a day. Although the cost is high, it’s a good service to use if you can afford it or as a temporary meal plan while you’re trying to lose weight and/or cleanse.
