Yes! Meal Mentor is designed to work for households and dinner tables of any size. All our recipes are proportioned for 2-4 servings; so, if you’re cooking for yourself you have exactly what you need for dinner and lunch the next day, no adjustments necessary.

No way! While members who follow their weekly meal plan closely do often lose weight if they want to, Meal Mentor is designed for anyone who wants to access the many benefits of a plant-based, vegan diet made easy. That includes weight loss, weight maintenance and more general health benefits like better cholesterol, lower blood pressure, and a decreased risk of coronary heart disease (University of Toronto, 2018).

If weight loss is your goal, you’ll want to pay attention to macronutrient and calorie details provided with each recipe, along with our lighter portions and substitution suggestions, and omit extra snacks, desserts, and drinks.

And if weight loss isn’t your goal, don’t worry. You’re still going to love being a Meal Mentor member. You’ll experience all the incredible health benefits a WFPB diet provides, plus you’ll benefit from regained hours of your precious time, less stress, and a lower weekly grocery cost.

For sure. On top of being vegan and plant-based, many meals are either naturally soy-free, gluten-free and nut-free, or can be made so with some small adjustments.
What’s Included

The number of meals you get depends on the Meal Mentor plan you select. All Meal Mentor plans include a nightly dinner recipe that has been expertly taste-tested to make for great next-day leftovers. While we do not include specific lunch recipes, we recommend that you double your normal serving size when cooking dinner, saving one serving for lunch the following day.

For example, if you’re just feeding yourself, you’d make two servings: eating one for dinner and and the next for lunch. If you’re a couple, you’d make 4 servings for dinner, rather than just two. If you’re a family of 4, you can just double the recipe.

The Basic Meal Mentor membership covers lunch and dinner only, so you get 56 planned meals per month (or 14 meals per week). The Standard and Premium Meal Mentor memberships also include breakfast, helping you prepare up to 84 planned meals per month (or 21 meals per week). Please visit our Plans & Pricing page for more details on the differences between membership plans.

Many of our members report spending $30 a week per person, or $45 if they choose organic ingredients. If you don't already have a well-stocked spice rack or pantry, your first week will cost more to buy some staple ingredients (but you won’t need to repurchase them for awhile). We also recommend looking for on-sale vegetables, bulk options, and buying frozen instead of fresh whenever you can.

Meal Mentor Standard and Premium plans are billed annually. With the Meal Mentor Basic membership, you have the option to be billed annually or monthly. The standard and premium plans offer the full range of Meal Mentor membership benefits, including exclusive access to Happy Herbivore ebooks and resources. Members on these plans also have access to the Meal Mentor community Facebook groups and forums. By offering annual memberships, we can better ensure a certain level of engagement in these communities necessary to make them great by avoiding an influx (or outflow) of members each month.

Depending on your choice of plan, you will be automatically billed for the entire year or month until you choose to cancel your membership. Please visit our Plans & Pricing page for more details.

Using MealMentor
Yes! Meal Mentor was created for busy people. Even by following the meal plan once or twice per week, you’ll shave hours off your weekly meal prep time, not to mention the overwhelming feeling of meal planning for an entire week. And, because you have everything you need right on your phone, you can also batch cook on a designated day (or two) during the week. Each recipe explains whether your meal can be made ahead of time or if it is best made fresh.

Batch cooking, or what many people refer to as ‘meal prep’, involves preparing your weekly meals ahead of time. For example, some of our members like to set aside a few hours every Sunday afternoon to settle on their weekly plan, grocery shop, and prepare their lunches and dinners for the week. It’s an easy way to make sure you can enjoy healthy, wholesome, home-cooked meals all week, no matter how many unexpected to-do’s spring up.

You only have to batch cook if that’s what you prefer! Most Meal Mentor recipes only take 5-20 minutes to prepare - perfect for weeknight express cooking.

We don't recommend freezing your Meal Mentor meals. Freezing meals changes the texture of your food, and reheating them can often take longer than preparing a fresh meal (which means you’re more likely to opt for a less-healthy option instead). Instead, we advocate making all your meals in advance and storing them in the fridge for quicker reheating.

Absolutely. In the Meal Mentor app, simply swap out the recipes you don’t want with others in our database that you’d prefer. Your in-app grocery list will be automatically updated to reflect your customized meal plan. Because Meal Mentor lets you shop for your own ingredients, you can also customize your meals based on personal preferences and dietary needs. Don’t like spinach and want to swap it out for lettuce? No problem! Just make the note in your grocery list and shop accordingly.

Our recipes also serve 1-4 people, so they work for individuals, couples and families — plus the variety of delicious meals will be loved by everyone (yes, even your non-vegan partners, friends, and kiddos).

We believe the only meal plan that sticks is one that works for you. If you don’t like one or more of our weekly suggestions, simply swap it out with one of your favorites in our in-app recipe database with over 300 of our most in-demand recipes. Make the switch and generate your new shopping list - it’s that simple!
