Thanks to the innovation of Uber, getting plant-based meals delivered to your door is now “uber”-easy!
The transportation company’s newest endeavor — UberEats — allows users to order food via Uber driver, making vegan eating as simple as swiping your finger. Some orders can even arrive in as little as 10 minutes!
The new service, which is a separate app from standard Uber, is already available in a whole host of cities in the U.S. and worldwide, including Atlanta, Paris, NYC, Toronto, Miami, San Diego, Seattle, and Los Angeles, among others. If you’re not in one of the participating cities — yet — not to worry. The service will be branching out.
Each city has dozens participating restaurants, including plenty of plant-based and vegan-friendly spots. To name just a few, in Austin, there’s Freebirds World Burrito; in Miami, Full Bloom Vegan Cuisine; in Los Angeles, Simply Salad; in NYC, Beyond Sushi — and many, many, many more.
For those who aren’t into cooking at home, this is the ultimate delivery option. With UberEats, users can choose an eatery’s “signature dish” from the Instant Delivery menu and you can go from “hungry to happy in 10 minutes.” Restaurant’s full regular menus are available too, and the average order takes 35 minutes from start to finish.
Hungry customers pay just the food and delivery price, no need to tip. Then the app allows you to track your order as it makes its way to your mouth.
Thanks to home meal delivery services like the Purple Carrot and Forks Fresh Meals; meal kit companies like Green Chef; the rise in veg fast food spots like Amy’s Drive-Thru and Plant Power Fast Food — and now, UberEats — there’s no way to argue that vegan eating isn’t easy. It’s gentler on the environment, better for human health, kinder towards our animal friends, and now, more convenient than ever.
