Review - Nature's Plate (Plant-Based Meals...To Go!)

I had the honor of being invited to a taste-testing at Nature's Plate (a Dallas-based establishment that provides homemade, plant-based meals TO GO) because they are now offering a new line of OIL-FREE dishes! I tasted their luscious Chickpea Noodle Soup and divine BBQ Tofu Plate (which included decadent mashed potatoes and steamed broccoli). Each dish was simply fabulous! In addition, I also got to try their Indian-inspired Curry Rice with Peas and Cauliflower, as well as a rich Chocolate Muffin, which was sweetened with bananas and maple syrup--ALL oil-free!

First off, Nature's Plate offers a weekly menu with many reasonably priced meals to choose from. They also offer a meal plan comprised of meals with a set amount of calories for those who are more calorie-conscious.  ALL items are plant-based, and some of them are even gluten-free and/or oil-free, as well as many of the ingredients are organic. You can even order and pick up sides, salads, breakfast items (oatmeal, breakfast tacos, etc.), snacks (like homemade snack bars or a fruit bowl) and even bakery items (like healthier cookies, brownies, and muffins) on your way out the door!

This unique business is run by Annette Baker and Marianne Lacko--sisters who have been vegan for more than a decade and a half! Their love of cooking and living a healthy lifestyle encouraged them to go from informal cooking for friends and family to a brick-and-mortar business catering to busy, working people who don't have the time or don't know how to cook healthy meals for themselves and their families. Thankfully, they are expanding and looking to meet the needs of more Dallasites and suburbians in the near future!

Nature's Plate's present location is in Lake Highlands at 10233 E. Northwest Hwy, Suite 432
Dallas, TX 75238, but there are two additional pop-up locations--one in Plano and one in Oak Cliff. Check their website for their hours and pick up days/times.
