Are the meals ready-made?
Yes! Just heat (or shake the smoothies) and eat! All of our meals are ready-to-eat. Just shake up your smoothie or pop your soup, grain, or noodle bowl into the microwave or stovetop for easy meal prep in minutes.
How and when should I consume Splendid meals?
There’s no right way to Splendid, but if you are craving structure, most of our customers start the week with the Reset Day of 5 Light Soups, then continue their weekly meal plan with a Smoothie for breakfast, a Soup or Grain Bowl for lunch, and a Noodle Bowl for dinner.
What is a Reset Day?
Here at Splendid Spoon, we believe that every so often the body can benefit from a reset. How? Go for a full day of souping: Enjoy your 5 light soups as breakfast, lunch, dinner and two snacks - in any order throughout the day, with plenty of water in between. Or, space them throughout the week for an extra plant-based meal or snack when you need it. Learn more about the benefits of resetting here.
What if I don’t like a certain ingredient, or have an allergy?
You can add or update avoidances to certain ingredients at any time. Head to your Account Dashboard to select any ingredients you would like to avoid. We’ll keep track of your avoidances for upcoming boxes, so any meals containing these ingredients will be automatically skipped. Review your meals each week to pick your favorites, too! Give them a heart to let us know what you’re loving.
What changes can I expect after starting Splendid Spoon?
It takes most of our customers 3-4 weeks to start seeing meaningful change, even with just one plant based meal a day. Customers comment on weight loss, increased energy, better digestion, deeper sleep, and clearer skin, just to name a few. You can also hear from these medical professionals on the benefits of plant-based eating.
Will I lose weight on Splendid Spoon?
“Will I lose weight?” is one of the most common questions we get asked. Splendid Spoon isn’t a diet or a short-term fad. We are a plant-based wellness brand built on the idea that just a few small changes can create a lasting impact on your health. Eating plant-based regularly has lots of benefits, which may include weight loss for you (among other things like increased energy, better sleep, stress reduction).

How are your recipes designed?
All of our meals are plant-based, gluten-free, and non-GMO. That means completely vegan: no meat, no dairy. Here’s more on why we promote a plant-forward diet. We steer clear of processed food and artificial sugars, and we use heart healthy fats and fiber rich whole grains to keep you satiated. All of our meals are developed by a team of food fanatics, including chefs from all walks of life, nutritionists, and registered dietitians.
"At Splendid we have a thoughtful development process that is rooted in flavor, nutritional value, and high quality ingredients. When launching a new meal, we go through three rounds of tastings with our food innovation team, founder, other team members, and customer advisory board. If our meals don’t score a 3.5 or higher, then it is back to the kitchen! Additionally, we take ingredient tasting very seriously, we tasted bananas from 10 different farms before landing on the “perfect banana” for our smoothies." - Rene, Director of Food Product
I am very active. Will I get enough protein from Splendid meals?
Absolutely. An active lifestyle requires a well-balanced diet, and all necessary nutrients can be found while eating plant-based. We have specific higher protein meals, which you can find here. Plus, read more on how plant-based eating can fully support an active lifestyle here.
Are there other people Spooning that I can connect with?
Yes, join our Spoon Crew! It’s a safe, judgement-free zone for you to ask any questions you may have, share your accomplishments (or struggles), and get special access to new ideas and meal hacks.
This all sounds great. What’s it like to do long-term?
Don’t take it from us, hear from our customers! The goal of Splendid Spoon is to make changing to a plant-based diet as easy and seamless as possible. Erin spent 90 days writing about her experience switching to Splendid Spoon. Coming from a non-plant-based diet, her blog is honest about the good, the bad, and the ugly of a large habit shift. Her recaps are hilarious and candid - we promise you’ll be laughing with her before long. Read about her journey here.
