Allplants was born out of the passion of brothers JP and Alex who loved the idea of eating just plant-based foods, but who couldn’t find delicious, nutritious, interesting dishes to feed their desire. They came up with Allplants to enable everyone a chance to live the vegan lifestyle without having to spend hours searching for tasty food or spend a lot of money getting the ingredients.
What is Allplants?
There has been a push recently to encourage us to eat more plant-based foods, and the term ‘flexitarian’ is gaining momentum. It basically means that even full-time meat eaters should try to have at least one or two days a week where they don’t eat meat. Better for the planet and better for your health, it’s a good way to start. Yet the problem has always been not the idea – which is a good one – but the execution. Going vegetarian or vegan surely means that your meal choices are limited and, ultimately, boring?
Perhaps that was so in the past, but these days things have changed, and there has been a revolution in vegan cuisine. Allplants is at the forefront of these changes. The dishes included in this meal plan are all created by a professional chef, and they are different and exciting – not your usual veggie fare.
Allplants is not like other meal subscription services in that you don’t have to do any work at all. Rather than sending you a box of ingredients for you to put together, Allplants is really a frozen ready meal service, although much higher class than the ones you might normally find in a supermarket.

How Much Does Allplants Cost?
What are the portion sizes?

Do you have to subscribe to Allplants?
You don’t have to subscribe to Allplants in order to enjoy the kits. It’s easy to place a one-off order as and when, but if you do want to subscribe and not have to think too much about it, that’s an option too.
How nutritious are the dishes?
Allplants is naturally healthy, and every dish is low in sugar and is a good source of protein. The aim is that every meal will provide you with at least two of your five a day, and sometimes more.
All the ingredients and the nutritional information is located on the website so you can make an informed choice when organising your meal boxes.
What happens if no one is home for delivery?
The contents of the delivered boxes can stay cool until 10pm due to the special insulating packaging used (which is also recyclable and partly compostable). This means that even if no one is home the food can be delivered and when you come back you can simply pop it into the freezer.
