Our packaging is made of plastic, which isn’t very sustainable – but we’re still looking for ways to completely replace the plastic with another material. Packaging options made of cardboard always have a layer of plastic on the inside, which sadly makes them no more sustainable than the plastic bags we’re using at the moment. Of course, our bags are recyclable and can be discarded with your other plastic waste.
All the stuff you didn’t know you always wanted to know

How do frozen meals help combat food waste?
By freezing fruit and vegetables immediately after the harvest, the nutritional value stays intact, and the food can be kept fresh for much longer. Not only in the chain (from farm to wholesaler to supermarket), but also in your own freezer.
Meals and products that aren’t stored frozen are much more likely to spoil before they’re bought or eaten. About a third of all food goes to waste this way. If you buy a frozen meal, you get to decide exactly when it’s convenient for you to eat. That saves a lot of food from going to waste.
So how do your meals make our planet better?
By not eating animals or animal products, you help reduce greenhouse gas emissions, water use, livestock feed production and land use. And of course you make a lot of animals happier.
With every Lazy Vegan meal you eat, you save 1.7 kgs of CO2, 700 litres of water, 1.5 kgs of animal feed and 8 square metres of land.
Where can I buy Lazy Vegan meals?
There’s a page for that!
Do I have to add ingredients?
Our meals are fully nutritionally complete. If you like, feel free to add whatever you like. We even have some tips for you if you’re ready for some variation!
How do I prepare a Lazy Vegan meal?
There’s no need to defrost! Just toss the ingredients in a frying pan or skillet. Add some of your favourite vegetable oil and give it the occasional stir over medium heat. Feel free to drift away on those delicious aromas filling your nose. But not too long, because it will only take a few minutes before your meal is ready to serve. Wonderfully lazy, isn’t it?
The microwave is your friend too. Simply empty the bag into a bowl or onto a plate and cover it with a lid. Then heat it for 6 minutes at 900 W, 7 minutes at 800 W or 8 minutes at 700 W. Don’t forget to stir halfway through.
