About

Eating healthy isn’t always fast or easy .... that's why there's VegReady. 

Meals that store perfectly until you need them.

  • Open and eat in seconds; super convenient plus delicious
  • Non-GMO; gluten-free
  • Low Carbon footprint 

      ... they're perfect for the office or at home for busy families with no time to cook.

 Here's how it works

                Step 1:     Order meals to home or work.

                Step 2:     Meals arrive by mail -- store until needed.

                Step 3:     Open and immediately enjoy with no hassle.

They have a long shelf life because they are cooked and sealed in BPA-free trays. No microwaving needed.

Custom build meals

In early 2018 you'll be able to custom build meals combining the dishes you like and order functional toppings that support energy, focus, digestion, probiotics, anti-inflammation, immune, etc..

Match meals to your genes 

In late 2018 we plan to complete our meta-study of published studies on foods that elicit gene expression. Then you'll be able to submit your DNA report and our proprietary DNA Algorithm will search the big data to see which foods people with genes like yours do best with. You can then order meals with those dishes. 

This is personalized food for the twenty-first century.

Choose from 200 dishes to build your meals then add functional toppings … for a leaner, stronger, better YOU. 

 

VegReady meals are always plant-based, non-GMO, and Gluten-free. Store at home or work with no need to refrigerate! You can always have a healthy meal ready to eat.  

 

Our first 5 flavors are:

  • Mango, Jalapeno, Tomato
  • Artichoke & Hearts of Palm 
  • Green Asparagus & Peppers 
  • Hearts of Palm & Peppers 
  • Zucchini, Peppers & Onion

They come from the mountains of Peru where Quinoa is the traditional high protein dish. Every meal includes perfectly cooked Quinoa, sautéed greens and savory vegetables. 

Personalize your food. Order today. 

Today you can order meals that taste good. And doctors can prescribe meals for weight loss or health conditions. 

In early 2018 you'll be able to custom order meals with functional toppings to enhance mental and physical performance.

In late 2018 you'll be able to submit your DNA report so our Algorithm can recommend which of our 200 dishes match your genes and gut micro flora.

 

Join millions in the food revolution. Order today and you'll be helping our lead researcher, Dr. Michael Greger complete our DNA algorithm with graduate students at medical schools like Cornell and Stanford. 

And don’t forget, VegReady meals are perfect for busy professionals with kids. Nothing to cook, nothing to defrost, and earth friendly. Whenever you want, wherever you want — in seconds. Just open. And enjoy! 

The convenience of fast food .... the taste of home made. That’s VegReady.

The journey of creating VegReady.
The journey of creating VegReady.

 

Mark Perlmutter is an accomplished entrepreneur who created a film showing the healing power of plant-based foods seen by millions: "Simply Raw: Reversing Diabetes In 30 Days".

 

Mark is passionate about helping people eat better if they want to and using online commerce to do that. In 2005 he created a film showing plant-based foods are powerful enough to reverse chronic diseases including type 2 diabetes. In a few year Mark's company sold millions of dollars of dvds online resulting in a profit for him and his investors with more than two million mainstream viewers learning the benefits available from plant-based foods. But most said it was too inconvenient to find vegan meals and gave up. He recognized the need for easy to find healthy meals, but the market wasn't ready.

In 2014 he saw the demand growing and began developing a solution. With advice from food scientists and supply chain experts VegReady was born. He assembled a team including millennial internet marketers and Wall Street professionals to bring healthy affordable food to the masses.  His goal is to help 45 million flexitarians eat a couple plant-based meals per week. This has the potential to disrupt the legacy $26 Billion convenience food sector.

Mark has been licensed as a securities broker and real estate broker. He’s an established subject matter expert in online marketing, healthy lifestyles, high-net worth investing and real estate. He cares about peopl, planet and animals and is using his skills to improve

Prior to creating her own agency, she created several impactful, revenue driven campaigns for a franchised food operation in the mid-west.

Prior to that, he started one of the first vegan soy dairies in India which his brother runs for him today. He and his wife also operate a vegan food truck in the San Francisco Bay area.

He became vegetarian in 2004 when he was volunteering with a program to rescue animals from slaughterhouses. Later when dining at Vegetarian restaurant in Silicon Valley he saw a pamphlet about cruelty. That’s when he became vegan. Since then he has coded an entire site for vegans to learn from and connect with others. It has been described as a mashup of Facebook and Instagram: www.Veg.me

Risks and challenges

VegReady is a completely new brand, product, and movement. Although we have rigorously tested this product, it has yet to be released in the hands of consumers. With that, we are open to our backers giving us feedback on where we can improve.

To ensure that we don't have a delay in our products’ journey to our headquarters and in turn our customers, we have taken precautionary measures to set aside more than enough time to get our products to us and in your hands when promised.
