This sounds over the top but these products have changed my life
Ive been using different meal services - 5point4, YouFoodz, but I wanted to try soulara because of the vegan options and variety! Ive found everything tasting the same with other companies but soulara is amazing.
Every meal so far has been incredible! Ive popped them into the freezer because my routine is unpredictable but they freeze fine, and its so handy to have macro balanced, tasty meals within 5 minutes whenever I need.
Theyre a little pricy but no more than cooking these kinds of meals for yourself.
Would definitely recommend!

Tasty and makes my days easier
I signed up for soulara because I'm not a huge fan of cooking but I AM a huge fan of tasty and nutritious food. I also work very long shifts (12-14hrs) and need food that's easy and quick to prepare so I can eat on the job, throughout the day.
The food is quick and easy to prepare and I've found it to be quite tasty. The variety is second to none. I'm a bit confused about the reviews that call it bland, to be honest. I haven't had one meal that I thought was bland or tasteless. I also like that the meals are whole foods based with no apparent ...additives or preservatives. My only real issue is that the meals are quite small. I'm a small (<60kg) but very active woman. I find 3-4 meals a day to be satisfying (not including breakfast and supplemented with fruit). Bigger people, men, and people with physically demanding jobs might find they could eat two or three meals in one sitting. Overall, I'm happy with the food. You're not paying for massive portions, you're paying for real food, convenience, and variety which I believe soulara delivers.
Changing our lives!
My partner and I have joined Soulara twice and loved each experience.
The first time round we wanted to try the hype, we had a few friends who were subscribed and heard very good things. I was not disappointed. I struggled a tiny bit with the portions as I ate way more than we should so I wasn't used to portion control. I didn't give my body enough time to adjust.
This second time round, it's 3 weeks in and we are feeling the best we have in a very long time.
There is SO much variety and old favorites from last time.
I suffer from bloating...and weight gain due to medication and I have noticed my bloating is better by at least 60% and I've already lost some kg's (I don't own scales). My skin is clearer and brighter my mum mentioned that I'm glowing. The convenience of having all 3 meals prepared 6 days a week is just incredible! We have more time together and doing things we love instead of slaving away in the kitchen. We both work long hours and really don't want to be in the kitchen sometimes until 9:30pm after cooking and cleaning.
The reviewer stated that an incentive was offered for this review
Fantastic. Can't understand very negative reviews left here.
Have found this service to be great. We are not practicing vegetarians, but keen to reduce our meat intake, and chose the 12 meal plan to achieve this.
So far we have found a good variety and great, tasty meals. For us to prepare this variety each week would be impossible. Good to see the variety has increased since I last used the service, and there is a greater range of meals to choose from.
It saves us time (can be used for study and working), and less wasteful then trying to prepare different meals each week (difficult when just 1-2 people)...
Food was inedible. I really wanted SOULARA to be what they advertised
The customer service was fine as was the weekly delivery.
The food was so tasteless. Vegetables were inedible.
I have no idea how a chef could get it so wrong.
I am a creative eater & have no trouble eating decent meals.
SOULARA needs to address this issue because they will not succeed with the poor quality of food they are currently delivering.
I wasted my money and time.
Absolutely loving it! Easy to stay healthy whilst working full time and studying!
I've been doing Soulara now for a few months and it is absolutely great for someone who is working and studying and wants to remain eating a healthy balanced diet. I am aiming to tone up as well and Soulara have made it easy for me to make good healthy choices that I know are nourishing my body to get me through my day. I see a lot of reviews talking about taste being bland etc but I have to disagree completely, the meals are very flavoursome and I've even given a few to my mum who loved them as well. It is great that they source their products...from mostly organic farms and its food planned by a nutritionist. Really gives me extra comfort in the choices I am making. I highly recommend to anyone who is time poor, wants a healthy choice and loves value for money!
Was reeled in by all the glowing 5-star reviews..
There are definitely some delicious meals however I chucked out so many meals due to taste. I had to chuck out the following meals due to taste and smell: Shakti Stroganoff, Nirvana Carbonara, Jalepeno Mac & Cheese and Mushroom Bourguignon. I had to opt for different dinner options, and just wasted my money. I really wanted to like it, but in comparison to other Meal Plan companies, they have a smaller menu size, and didn't taste too great.
I am happy I tried Soulara out, because I found out it wasn't for me.
In regards to delivery, for my tw...o orders they were either sent to wrong house or didn't make an effort to hide it. Delivery fee is 20$!!!! Ridiculous amount to pay.... No value for money here. I'm on YouFoodz now. They have yummier meals AND free shipping! Not regretting it one bit.
Perfect for staying healthy whilst studying
As a time poor student, Soulara has been so helpful in allowing me to eat healthily whilst studying. So many quick to prepare foods are low in nutrients and vegetables and it’s really difficult to find vegetarian or vegan meal delivery services, but Soulara provided a wide range of delicious, healthy meals. My favourite dishes are the healing turmeric soup and the pesto pasta - they’re both always on my weekly menu!
Great concept, bland food.
I should start off by saying that the company is very organised and professional, meals arrive when expected, and it is an easy system to use online. With that said, the food itself is not great. I understand that flavour and taste is a very subjective thing, however, I found most meals very bland. A lot of my meals were curry based and they had absolutely no flavour! I would suggest that they hire new chefs or find better recipes.

Tasty lovely nutritious plant food but ...
The meals are brilliantly nutritious interesting and fresh! However automatic second week order went through morning after meals arrived. Not enough time to taste & review or amend order. Therefore I cancelled subscription but may re order again soon and try other dishes.
Love their meals!
My son’s girlfriend is vegan and I find it a challenge to cook for her when I have the family over for a meal. Soulara was recommended and it was a great find! 3 portions of the Pesto pasta made a delicious salad for 8 people and the dahl was a great hit with my son’s girlfriend. I used the extra meals during my work week and I particularly loved the stir fry and the curry dishes. The food taste home-made and the meals are a boon when I come home too tired to cook on weeknights. I will definitely be ordering again.
Very impressed with the Customer Service
I have been ordering from Soulara weekly for a few months now and have always been impressed with the quality of the meals. Today (Sunday) my order was delivered and it was wrong. I logged onto the website and started a chat with Lisa and let her know what happened. Less then five minutes the courier was back at my door with the correct order. Great customer service and even on a Sunday!
Smoothest delivery ever - cheers!
Been seeing your ads on Insta for ages and finally decided to order. Just wanted to say how impressed I was with how easy it all was! On my delivery day, I got a text letting me know when my food was coming (so didn’t have to wait home all day for it) and the driver came on time. He was super-polite and my food arrived looking perfect. Easiest online ordering ever, I’m never cooking again haha!
I Can't go without the Paleo Peanut Butter Cups
I've been eating Soulara for over 6 months now and am loving it :) My favourite meals are the Sunkissed Pesto, Mushroom Bourguignon and Enoki Magi Soba. And I can't go without the Paleo Peanut Butter Cups - um YUM!! - for a sweet treat. Honestly, I love fresh home-cooked healthy meals and used to cook at home a lot. But last year I started a new job and sadly don't often have the time (or energy lol) now... your meals are the next best thing. I don't have to stress about what to eat or find time to do a huge grocery shop each week, but I still know I'm eating healthy real food. One request: can you do a healthy crunchy peanut butter bliss/protein ball?? That would make me SO happy!
They lost me
There is a cut off to alter your order on Saturday morning. They claim it is fresh however they state they cook on Sunday and you don't get it until Friday. Fresh to me isn't one week old food. (however, it all tasted nice)
They are very strict on the cut off time. I once had insufficient funds in my account and they sent an email letting me know. I fixed the issue asap and wrote back to them to let them know it was ok to then take the money but they ignored me and I missed my order. I don't feel like they value their customers on a personal le...
AMAZING FOOD! You will get hooked from the first order!
I've never been a fan of pre-packaged food but Soulara has completely changed my view! The food comes in easy to prepare packaging. All you need to do is pierce the top a few times, heat for 3-3.30 minutes and let it sit for a minute then enjoy! We have two children under 4 so feeding them comes first. This leaves us little time to feed ourselves so the convenience of Soulara really suits our needs.
My weight has come down 12 kgs in 4 months by changing to a plant based diet. I'm a 40 year old tradesman who loves meat. It was hard at the star...t thinking of what to eat but Soulara opened my eyes to how good plant based food can taste. I still eat a little meat to keep a balanced diet but could happily eat Soulara every day! The food has a shelf life of just over a week, which means the freshness is perfect when opened. Some of the other meals have a longer shelf life depending on what you choose. The only negative I have is wondering what to choose each week!
A great mix of sweet and savoury options
Working as a lawyer, the hours can be unpredictable and long. I often find myself struggling to fit everything into my day and more often than not reaching for an unhealthy option to eat, just because it is easy. The meal delivery service is appealing to me for both health and convenience reasons. I had been wanting to try a meal delivery service for some time but found it hard to find something that had a variety of options for vegetarians and healthy food. Soulara has so many options and I like that you can pick the meals yourself and see all the ingredients in the meal before choosing the meals you would like delivered, as I can be fussy. Soulara has a great mix of sweet and savoury options.
So far, so good.Only on my first week but the food is amazing. We are enjoying every meal so far. Have placed another order for next week. I personally love cooking from scratch but have been ill, so this is a great option!
Website states meals will last 7 days but mine expire in 5 or 6 days. It is delivered on a Friday which means they won't last me for next week's lunches. Defeats the purpose of ordering them if they don't last Monday-Friday which is when most people don't wan't to cook.
Cancelled my subscription straight away!
Loving it !
Loving my experience with Soulara thus far. The girls are fantastic to communicate with. My order was delivered promptl and refrigerated nicely. I’m onto my 3rd meal and they really taste great! I read in other reviews that’s they have no flavour which is a blatant lie! These people must have no taste buds and don’t eat vegan food regularly. The ingredients are fresh and there is a lot of thought and love in their food which I love because I do the same when I make my own meals. This is just way easier for me, Im onto something good here and lo...ok forward to trying everything in the lunch / dinner range! I also love that they locally source ingredients and that the packaging is environmentally friendly. The amount of packaging I go through from normal grocery shopping is ridiculous. Thank you Soulara for the great experience service and product, I have been and will continue to tell everyone about your fantastic meals and service x Sheree and Zak x

Questions & Answers
what additives, if any, do you use?
I have noticed that there are literally dozens of suspiciously over zealous, over positive, over written reviews of this product and all reviewers have one thing in common ...... they are all first time reviewers. I smell false positive reviews. Such a pity there's no way productreview.com.au can filter out the bogus reviews done by fake positive review accounts. It's just so obvious what Soulara are doing to bump up their star rating on here. I'm about to try the food for convenience but I'm really disappointed to see fake reviews and this has made me suspicious of the company. Is there anybody out there with more than 20 reviews, who has not just started up their account in 2019 who can give me HONEST, GENUINE feedback on this food and the company ????????
Ok this is my honest opinion. I am not paid for leaving it. So for me that was the biggest NO ever. Although the customer service is not bad in the way they communicate with you quite effectively the problem is they don’t take responsibility for not delivered products or even all boxes. Well maybe I said wrong... they take responsibility in the way they will credit it (after 5-10 days !!) but of you order food and you wait for over 1 week for first delivery you don’t really want credit you want food. So I ordered twice and !!!! Twice not delivered ;) and the best is I got exactly the same story .. which would be fine if not fact I gave them another chance one year after first disaster. So if you want my opinion. If you don’t care if your food was delivered or not go for it and try it, if you want to buy from the company you can trust that your effort of eating healthy, lose weight or whatever is your goal and you expect every week your fridge won’t be empty go and do your business somewhere else
Thankyou ! I ended up using The Organic Kitchen here in Melb. I got a bad feeling about this company and didn’t like the ‘no phone number’ thing. If they can put a person on a chat screen they can put them on a switchboard. It seemed too sales focused for me and the clearly fake positive reviews were the deal breaker. Thanks for your answer !!!
Yeah, all the glowing, positive reviews sound like they've been pre-written by the same writer. Pretty confident they are all FAKE REVIEWS. And to think I was about to order a subscription from them. For a company to be dishonest like this, it has put me off. I think I'll just stick to preparing my own vegan meals.
