A vegan diet is a type of plant-based diet that excludes all animal products. You probably realize that a vegan diet eliminates meat and dairy foods, but you may not know that it also nixes gelatin, honey, and other ingredients derived from animal sources.
Many people choose to eat a vegan diet for environmental and animal welfare reasons in addition to the health benefits. A well-planned vegan diet is rich in vegan whole foods, such as beans and legumes, fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds, and plant-based oils. Eating these foods regularly means you’re certain to get antioxidants, vitamins, minerals, and fiber, which may be why vegan diets promote a healthy weight and are associated with a lower risk of heart disease and certain forms of cancer.
While certain processed forms of plant proteins may be suitable on a vegan diet, our vegan meals stand out because we only use whole foods, such as chickpeas and lentils, to supply protein (as well as other nutrients). Plus, each meal in the bundle has a minimum of 9 grams of fiber, which is more than a third of the daily requirement.
Our vegan meals are packed with a variety of vegetables, from root veggies, like sweet potatoes to leafy greens, like kale. We put lots of color into each vegan entree since the range of plant foods in your weekly menu is tied to the healthfulness of your gut. And all roads to good health begin with a healthy gut.
Additionally, we include the most wholesome carbs in our vegan dishes. Starchy veggies, whole grains, and pulses (a catch-all phrase for peas, beans, and lentils) are nutrient- and fiber-filled foods that provide even energy. You’ll find these ingredients throughout the vegan bundle.
Finally, we cook our vegan meals in avocado oil and season them with herbs and spices. We have a hunch they’ll be the best and most convenient vegan dishes you whip up! And PS, they’re suitable for omnivores who just want to add some vegan dishes to their meal rotation. Enjoy!
