General Meal Plan Questions
Q: What is Well Vegan?
A: We started Well Vegan as a resource for the vegan. We support a plant-based lifestyle, but if you’re transitioning or can only dedicate a few days a week to eating vegan, you can still take advantage of the resources on the site. We’re all about making plant based convenient, accessible and enjoyable. Our goal is to make eating vegan easier, so more people will make the switch. If you ever have suggestions about what you would like to see included, please holler.
Q: Do you have a meal plan for families?
A: I have a family, but no family meal plan! Yikes! Well, as most of you with families can imagine, planning for a family is a logistical nightmare—little people, teenagers, picky eaters, school lunches, ahhhh!!! If you want to subscribe (and I hope you do), this is what I recommend; it typically works for our house and we have two kids (ages four and seven): Start with the basic plan without the flex day. Pick up some extra kid snacks and lunch stuff — carrots, raisins, peanut butter, whatever. And be sure to check out our post on kid friendly vegan eats.
Q: Will I lose weight eating a plant-based diet?
A: If you want to lose weight, a plant-based diet will probably help, but keep in mind that weight loss is dependent on caloric intake. If you’re eating more than your body needs, you’ll still gain weight. That said, a plant-based diet eliminates cholesterol and most saturated fats, greatly reducing your risk of heat disease, high blood pressure or high cholesterol. Your diet will be centered around whole, fresh foods and not nearly as much processed or refined foods.
Q: When will I receive my first meal plan and grocery list?
A: As soon as you sign up, you can sign in and access your Meal Plan Dashboard. There you’ll find the past two week’s meal plans and shopping lists. You can always access meal plans and shopping lists here, but we’ll email the new list for the week every Thursday night.
Q: I really don’t like a food that’s on the menu this week, can I change it?
A: Sure thing. If it’s as simple as a single ingredient, for example substituting pinto beans for black beans, super easy. If it’s a deal breaker for the recipe, check out the recipe section on the site or a previous week’s meal plan and find something you’re into. Just make sure to add what you need to your shopping list and get rid of what you don’t need. Both the meal plan and shopping list items are numbered, so it should be a breeze.
Q: Can I cancel any time?
A: Yes, cancel at any time.
Q: How do I cancel my account?
A: Log into the Meal Plan Dashboard, choose “Account” from the sidebar. A modal will pop up with your account information. At the top, choose “Subscriptions” and “Cancel.” Done, but we’ll miss you.
Q: How do I update my credit card information?
A: Log into the Meal Plan Dashboard, choose “Account” from the sidebar. A modal will pop up with your account information and at the bottom you’ll see an option for “Update Card.”
