LIL RUNNER’S REVIEW
At first look, I saw they were not offering organic products, but the ingredients in the Splendid Spoon products are 100% GMO-free, while the smoothies are 95% organic. I agreed to try them and to share my review. When coming up with their products, Splendid Spoon does prioritize the Dirty Dozen and will have organic ingredients in those categories. The food is clean sourced and they have done a good job selecting clean ingredients.
They offer a few shots that are 3 ounces with ingredients listed on the container.
Ingredients: Coconut Curry Bowl
organic brown rice, organic kale, chickpeas, coconut milk (coconut, water), water, yellow onion, cashews, ginger, garlic, white vinegar, lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, salt, turmeric, curry powder, red chili pepper, black pepper
This was tasty!
I warmed up all of the meals on the stovetop. One thing that I would recommend is changing the containers from plastic or have the recommendation to use the stovetop to warm up. Warming up plastic in the microwave releases chemicals into the food.
The smoothies were not my cup of tea because they were mainly made from fruits. There was no added sugar, but some of them had up to 20g or more of sugar per one bottle. I typically avoid fruit smoothies due to the sugar content, even though it is naturally occurring sugar.
If you are sensitive or allergic to nuts, many of the meals contain cashews.
Overall, this is a great way to eat healthy food that is convenient at a reasonable price!
