The popularity of online meal delivery services has grown exponentially over the last decade, and there are no signs of it slowing down anytime soon. In fact, the online meal delivery market is projected to grow to over 7.6 billion by the year 2024.

Mosaic Overview

Mosaic is a 100% plant-based meal delivery service that offers fully prepared meals with organic ingredients and zero preservatives. The company was started by two long time friends, Matt and Sam, who were blessed to be raised by parents who valued serving healthy, home cooked meals to their families. Now in adulthood, this dup realized that preparing meals for themselves was difficult, time-consuming, and costly, but the alternative, fast food, was all together unhealthy. This dilemma sparked an idea that turned into the two of them experimenting with whole, fresh foods, frozen to seal in the nutrients and goodness.

Mosaic's take on meals is a fresh one. They believe that healthy, satisfying meals should be accessible to everyone. Their mission is to make eating well simple, tasty, and convenient for folks with all kinds of schedules and demands. Customer can enjoy meal options from three categories: veggie bowls, soups, and oat bowls. Customers can build their own box, hand-picking from their rotating fresh menu of vegan choices, or you can have Mosaic choose for you, filling the box with their most most popular dishes

Benefits of Mosaic include:

  • 100% plant-based
  • Organic
  • Fully prepared
  • No preservatives
  • Ready to eat in 5 minutes or less
  • Breakfast, lunch, and dinner options
  • Delivered frozen
  • Ingredients and nutrition facts listed for each meal

Popular dishes include:

  • Peanut tofu bowl
  • Roasted garlic cauliflower soup
  • Peanut butter, banana, and cacao oats

Splendid Spoon Overview

Splendid Spoon offers fully prepared, 100% plant-based meals and smoothies. When I first wrote a review on Splendid Spoon, I noted that their rotating menu includes over 50 different options that can be mixed and matched to your choosing. There are multiple meal plans available, including options for 1, 2, or meals per day as well as a special reset plan and wellness shots for an added nutrient boost.

Their selection of low-sugar smoothies is part of what sets this vegan meal delivery service apart from the rest. Their organic, flavorful smoothies are packed with nutrients and are ready-to-drink. Other menu options include soups, grain bowls, and noodles. Each meal is prepared and delivered to you fresh.

  • Chocolate cherry smoothie
  • Vegetable Bolognese Bowl

Decision Time: Which vegan meal plan is right for you? Splendid Spoon or Sprinly or Mosaic?

Now that you’re armed with the most important facts and features of each meal plan, it’s time to put that knowledge to use by choosing one for you. Keep in mind that you’re never locked into a long-term commitment with any of these plans, so feel free to try them all!

Here’s the approach I would take to narrow down which option is right for you:

What meals are looking to have delivered?

If it’s breakfast, go with Splendid Spoon! Their smoothies are top-notch and perfect for grab and go mornings.

For lunches, I would choose Sprinly as they’re already prepared and ready to go. Perfect for stashing in your bag and giving a quick warm-up at the office.

And for dinners, I would recommend choosing Mosaic. They have a large selection of options and many of the meals are created to be dinner time dishes.

Need all three meals? Mosaic and Splendid Spoon are the only options that offer enough variety to cater to all three meals per day. At that point, the decision comes down to convenience, in my opinion. Splendid Spoon’s meals are already prepared fresh and Mosaic’s are frozen. 

Speaking of frozen, if you’re someone who has a crazy schedule and wants to flexibility to grab a freezer meal at will and heat it up, knowing that it’s always fresh, Mosaic is the way to go. You can also freeze Splendid Spoon’s and Sprinly’s meals, but that requires some pre-planning for the week.

Need a budget-friendly option? Splendid Spoon and Mosaic are the more moderately priced options, with Splendid Spoon coming in at a little less per meal when you use my exclusive coupon code to get $50 off your first order!

Parting Words

By now you have a good idea of what to expect from each of these plans, and you’re probably leaning towards one option over the others. I can confidently say that you’re going to enjoy the foods with any of these plans, but with each plan having its own nuances, it’s a good idea to choose the one that best fits your preferences and lifestyle.

Again, feel free to try them all! That’s sometimes the best way to truly find what works best for you. Personally, I frequently use Splendid Spoon for healthy breakfast and lunch options. Their meals are so easy to prepare and make eating healthy on the go super easy, which is imperative for a busy mom of two.
