"I've been a long time vegan but boy am I appreciating these meal plans. It is streamlining everything for me. For lunch I put the pumpkin chili on top of kale. It was fantastic. Thanks for doing this. It is really helping me get out of my food rut!!!" -- Neale G.

"I just love the meals! Made the buffalo chili and it was incredible. Everything is easy to cook and easy to eat and I'm not hungry! Ever! So far...so good! I love the gluten free options and no soy! Finally a plan with no tofu all the time! And I love how easy it is to shop for simple ingredients!" -- Jackie P.
