our-closed loop, zero-waste approach

how v+b works

There are countless meal moments in our everyday—which nutrients to consume, which triggers to avoid, how much prep time is available. We’re here to make it all easier. When we save time, we empower peace of mind. And when we skip uncertainty, we empower routines built not around choosing the right food, but around creating a better life.

order

Choose which meals you need and how often you need them. We offer breakfast, lunch, and dinner, along with function-focused tonics, snacks, and sides to meet your nutritional needs.
02

receive

Fresh, fully prepared, and ready-to-eat meals are delivered directly to your doorstep up to three times per week. The utmost speed and convenience, without sacrificing quality or freshness.
03

Take the worry and planning out of getting and staying healthy. Fill your fridge with nourishing, flavorful, fully prepared meals, tonics, wellness shots, snacks, and more.
