Splendid Spoon is my healthy food obsession. Every time I take that breakfast smoothie to gym or just out and about, I feel very sophisticated and very health conscious. That’s not to say that without Splendid Spoon I wasn’t health conscious, but having it the easy way is nice.
Splendid Spoon is one of the best options when it comes to vegan food that is not really a diet – it’s a lifestyle and a mindset, but also helps you lose weight without even trying. The company doesn’t advertise itself as a diet. They emphasize their desire to change the way we eat and reset our bodies with plant-based smoothies, soups, and grain bowls.
You can have some great choices with Splendid Spoon:
- 5 days of breakfast smoothies
- 5 days of lunch soups and bowls
- 5 days of breakfast smoothies and lunch bowls
- You can let Splendid Spoon pick your meals
- You can choose your own flavors yourself
I tried Splendid Spoon for about a month now and that is enough to understand what works for me and what doesn’t. I ordered smoothies and soups for a week 4 times, but not for consecutive week. This is another reason why I love Splendid Spoon – you can skip a week or a few any time, as long as you do that before the cutoff date, which is Sunday at 12am for Friday orders. I am not sure about the cutoff time for Wednesday shipments.

After tasting quite a few soups, I selected a few favorites that I go back to over and over again:
Green Split Pea Soup
First of all, peas are among my favorite foods, so naturally, I gravitate towards anything that has green, yellow, split, whole, or whatever else peas. This soup has just 340 calories, so I can eat this completely guilt-free. After a lunch like this, steak dinner sounds just fine. This soup, besides very pleasant taste, also has 16g of fiber, 14g of protein, Vitamin D, Calcium, Iron, Potassium, and just 12g of naturally occurring sugars.
Channa Potato Stew
Potatoes are my second love, after peas. This soup was very exotic to me, a little sour, but filling and mild. It had a bit of spice in it, but that’s just how I like it. The soup is made of organic potatoes, onions, chickpeas, extra virgin olive oil, curry powder, tamarind, cilantro, and ginger. I love Thai cuisine, but rarely make Thai food myself, so this was definitely good.
This is one more creation that is very exotic to me. It has a ton of healthy ingredients and tastes amazing. It has 280 calories and just 4g of sugars, but offers 10g of protein and various nutrients and vitamins. Splendid Spoon taught me that soup doesn’t have to have meat to be flavorful and filling. With ingredients like organic spinach, okra, organic brown rice, cilantro, organic carrots, lemon juice, ginger, coriander, cumin, fennel seeds, turmeric, and many others you are getting a bouquet of flavors without unneeded calories.
Carrot Lentil Curry
See, I am back to legumes again. If it’s not peas, then lentils will do. I would also enjoy beans of every color and shape. This soup was very colorful, thanks to carrots, and mild. Even my kids liked the taste! It had organic carrots, coconut milk, black lentils, onions, organic celery, coconut oil, orange juice, cilantro, curry powder, and nice seasoning. At 380 calories, it’s a healthy treat for sure!
Moroccan Lentil Stew
I felt like I just took a culinary trip to Morocco with this soup. Given current corona-related travel restrictions, this is as good as it gets. It’s tangy, flavorful, but not too spicy. And it has lentils, so I was sold on it before I even tried it. Just like all other soups, this one is low in calories, but high in protein and fiber. It has just 340 calories, but a whole lotta taste!
