Breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and snacks are all included in the $150 weekly box.

In the past year, it switched its menu to an entirely plant-based one, which is now expanding to home kitchens.

New York City's best plant-based restaurant offers home delivery of its high-end plant-based menu items. It was named World's Best Restaurant in 2017 and holds three Michelin stars.

Daniel Humm, the founder of Eleven Madison Home and the head of hospitality group Make It Nice, says the idea first emerged when he received positive feedback about his new green menu. In addition, the Swiss chef has experienced a shift in the quality and availability of ingredients since he realized the restaurant's sourcing and serving practices were environmentally unsustainable.

In fact, Harvard Medical School has conducted extensive research over many years that has found that plant-based diets are associated with lower rates of heart disease, diabetes type 2 and some types of cancer.

It's not easy to change our habits, especially when it comes to food. But Humm's curated offering makes it as easy as possible.The program only requires one day a week of commitment.

Eleven Madison Home's subscription program includes breakfast, lunch, dinner, dessert, and snacks for one diner every week. You do not need any fancy equipment or chef skills to prepare the dishes. All of them are ready to eat or don't require much preparation. Also, the menu, featuring fresh, seasonal produce sourced from the best local farmers, changes every week, so you'll never get bored.

The breakfast could be served with whole grain oatmeal topped with rhubarb compote and roasted pecan butter, the lunch would be celery root salad sandwiches on house-made focaccia, and the dinner would be Israeli couscous with roasted carrots and mushroom kebab. Humm hopes that even die-hard carnivores won't notice the absence of meat when they snack on chickpea crisps and olive tapenade. The desserts include bake-at-home snickerdoodle cookies, while snacks include chickpea crisps with olive tapenade.

"We have always aimed to redefine what luxury and fine dining is and can be," the chef says. "Eating plant-based comes without any sacrifice."

There is a philanthropic twist in Humm's subscription box, which costs $150 per week and is delivered to your home by Humm. There will be a portion of the proceeds donated to Rethink Food as well. In 2017, the Michelin-starred chef founded this charity, which fights food insecurity in New York City. By buying one box, the EMP food truck will be able to provide one plant-based meal.

As crazy as it sounds, Humm says they want to make a difference a day at a time. The taste of collective action has never been better.
