Where do the beans and rice come from?

Every time I found a nice vegetarian recipe it called for 15 - 20 ingredients and then I spent $50.

Blue Apron sounded ridiculously expensive, but not by comparison. They have a vegetarian version, but those seemed to call for eggs and dairy. I found Purple Apron, which is vegan, but they are weird:

Our 1-2 Person plan costs $72.00 per week and provides you with 3 delicious recipes feeding 1-2 people each.

Our 3-4 Person plan costs $80.00 per week and provides 2 recipes, feeding 3-4 people each.
They say that some recipes seem to satisfy two people, while others are only enough for one. Why don't they adjust the 1-2 Person plan so that every meal is enough for two?

The 3-4 Person plan would cost $40 per meal, plus leftovers. Somehow, I think I would rather go shopping every week.

Interestingly, they teamed up with Tom Brady, for meals that are high and protein and gluten-free. Don't worry! You can add gluten!
