If you hate grocery shopping, you’re not alone—heading out to the store can be time-consuming and a little dull. But if you’re the type who walks around the aisles daydreaming about better ways to spend your time, there is a solution: Hungryroot. The online platform uses AI to figure out the types of foods and recipes that suit your tastes best, without you having to go anywhere. Basically, it does all the hard work for you. Here’s how it works, plus some of the best vegan products you can find on its virtual shelves.

What is Hungryroot?

Founded in 2015, Hungryroot is both a unique meal-planning service and an online grocery store. After you sign up, you’ll be asked to take a quiz about your likes and dislikes and your dietary requirements, which will help to inform the type of foods the platform recommends to you. After that, it will help you to fill your cart quickly and easily by showing you products and recipes that fit your tastes and needs. If you love it, you can opt for a grocery subscription. 

The platform offers a wide range of sustainably sourced, organic produce, as well as a plethora of vegan dips, plant-based meats, snacks, and treats. It’s basically a paradise for plant-based shoppers. But to help you get an idea of what Hungryroot has to offer, below, we’ve listed just a few of our favorite items.
