Splendid Spoon

OK FRIENDS. I recently heard about a company called Splendid Spoon, a plant based meal delivery kit 🎃 As you may know, I have been on a journey to slowly decrease my meat/dairy consumption so this was THE PERFECT thing to try. 🥰 Here are my thoughts ⬇️

Splendid Spoon products are delicious, filling, convenient, nutritious, fun and VEGAN! (seriously my boyfriend who is very not vegan LOVED every meal we tried). AND if that’s not enough to convince you, they just brought back some of their fall favorites (pictured here) including the Roasted Brussel Sprouts Grain Bowl and the Pumpkin Spice Smoothie!! 🍃

I will be linking all of their information in my Instagram highlights if you are interested. Please check them out!! ⭐️
