If I said the words: Gluten Free. Dairy Free. Soy Free. All Natural. Vegan. Would you wonder, “is it also flavor free?” Not if it’s a meal from Hungryroot!
Hungryroot offers amazing veggie noodle based meals served with a creative sauce that can easily pair with a protein (purchase with or without grilled chicken). Home cooks can prepare their favorite meals in less than 10 minutes on the stove top or in the microwave. All the meals are locally sourced, non-GMO and are gluten free. Many are dairy free and even vegan. This is the answer to all my food dilemmas!
As a busy mom, with dietary restrictions, I often lack the time to prep healthy meals for myself. I spend so much time making meals I know my picky eaters will like that I am left at the mercy of hunger and I grab anything quick. I have dreamed of finding healthy organic convenience meals for years. Now, I can make a full sized healthy meal for myself before you can say chocolate chip cookie binge (OK more like 7 minutes). Every meal is less than 500 calories, rich in nutrients and already prepped!
I placed my first order as a Christmas gift to me. I was curious to taste for myself how root noodles could compare to the taste of traditional pasta meals. I selected a gift pack of three full meals and one side and one dessert. Did I mention these FRESH healthy quick cook meals were delivered right to my door?
I wasn’t home when my package arrived. But, the meals were all kept safe inside the insulated box with cooler packs. Incidentally, all the shipping materials are biodegradable and recyclable. Be sure to check with the local recycling guidelines in your area and read the directions on packaging before recycling.
My husband raves over every meal we try! The man who could live on pasta with every meal- RAVES over noodles made from vegetables! I personally love the Rutabaga noodles with Mushroom Pistou Sauce and grilled chicken the best, but those Sweet Potato noodles with Creamy Cashew Alfredo and Roasted Falafel have me craving more! My picky little eaters and I are now addicted to the Coconut Carrot Cake Bites with coconut frosting (all vegan!). I can’t wait to try the Black Bean Brownie Batter and the Maple Chick Pea Pancake Batter!
The cook time and the already portioned ingredients sold me on Hungryroot! A price point of $10-$12 per meal to serve 1-2 people may seem pricey for a family budget, but for this gluten/lactose/soy intolerant mama on a time crunch these super convenient meals really fit the bill!
You all know how much I love a company that gives back. Hungryroot is a 1+1 company which means they donate 1% of their profits to charity and volunteer 1% of their time to support nutritional education and healthy eating. At the time of my purchase they were donating fresh meals to City Harvest a NYC based food rescue agency.
Hungryroot meals are available through Hungryroot.com or FreshDirect and AmazonFresh.
So, hungry for more? Well, nothing gets a Friday started like some free food am I right? The amazing folks over at Hungry Root are giving all of you the chance to win a fabulous FREE meal including dessert! Just enter below!

I can’t believe I haven’t gotten it together to try these yet! This is great!
These look delicious! I’d love to try some to mix it up in the kitchen!
Yum! I have so many food allergies and suffer from the same thing as you! I get the kids and hubby meal all prepped and sometimes am left with nothing for myself. This would be perfect! Thanks! Found you through the twitter link up on Bloggers Get Social 🙂
Thanks for reaching out Sarah!! Nice to meet another blogger! 🙂
Thanks for introducing me to something new! My family members are die hard carbaholics, I wonder if I could fool them? Do they have black bean noodles? Someone was just telling me about them today!
Wow, this seems really cool! I keep hearing more and more about subscription meals and really want to try! I will take advantage of the free one to see what it is all about!
I’ve never heard of HungryRoot, but it sounds delicious. I am so that person that wonders if there’s any flavor after it’s all things free. I’ll have to check these out.
I had to laugh really hard at your first sentence about there being flavor in an allergy friendly recipe. I have found many ways to get around the lack of flavor in these types of recipes and I try to tell people it doesn’t all taste lifeless!
Wow, these dishes sound amazing and lots of my favorite flavors, sweet potato, falafel, mushroom, coconut, CARROT CAKE! As a patient who us trying to give up gluten, dairy and sugar, these all sound heavenly to me!
Those meals all sound really good. I’m going to check these out more!
What a great company! I love how good everything sounds! I am going to have to try this company soong!
I’ve tried a few meal/food delivery services and was disappointed every time. This looks like one that would be the exception to that. You had me at gluten free 🙂
These look great!
I would try this!! I really love pasta, but it’s so bad for me!!! I’ve tried a meal delivery company.
That sounds amazing! I often make zucchini noodles, but nothing out of root veggies. I would love to try something like this though. It looks delicious.
Now this is a subscription that sounds good to me. Happy to try foods that don’t always require meat.
I love making veggie noodles at home. This looks like a great program for people who are on the go and don’t have time to make them themselves. Thanks for sharing!
I’ve tried meal delivery kits but not HungryRoot. I love how they are time-savers for those really hectic days!
