Millennial Natalie Jaconetty started a passion project during the pandemic, because there was a need for mindful plant-forward vegan meals delivered to homebound #saferathome people. “I’m thrilled to be able to launch Herb and Seed. It’s a privilege to be able to use a variety of plant-based and nutritionally optimal ingredients for our meals that create flavor forward chef-inspired meals that support health and wellness. Also, I’m very proud to say that’re we’re a zero-waste organization and we will remain so as we grow.” said Jaconetty on the launch.
Her chef-inspired zero-waste organization, Herb and Seed offers a menu off delicious and macronutrient dense meals delivered to your front door. She uses USDA organic ingredients, and sustainable kitchen and delivery products. Never plastic, only compostable materials.
I received an invitation to taste some of the menu items to give my opinion. A delivery duo text me their ETA, and a message that they would leave my Herb and Seed bag by my front door for contactless delivery. I received a text when they arrived and when they left to retrieve my order.
The flavorful vegan and plant-based meals range in price. I started with two of the breakfast items which including a container of Banana Overnight Oats and Banana Oat Waffles. Breakfast items are priced at $11 per meal. The thoughtful super foods and fruit are good for energizing ones body and mind. There was the perfect balance of protein, vitamins, and healthy fats.
Later during lunch, I enjoyed a Pesto Bowl with cooked perfectly fusilli pasta made from chickpeas, topped with creamy pesto sauce, steamed kale with garlic, and sliced cherry tomatoes. My daughter chose the Rainbow Buddha Bowl with steamed sweet potatoes, long strands of carrots, sautéed greens, and a delicious beet hummus dressing. Both are priced at $13.50 per meal are made with love and minimal to no oil, salt or sugar added.
Dinners are flavorful and satisfying with Greek Stuffed Peppers, Creamy Tomato Polenta Stacks, and Enoki Mushroom Cakes with Miso Glazed Broccolini. Priced at $15.50 per meal, each meal is designed to provide key nutrients such as fiber, fats, carbs and protein and can be heated up in the microwave.
