A vegetarian diet differs from a vegan diet in that it may include specific animal ingredients, like dairy and eggs. This makes it more flexible for people who may not want to exclude all animal foods from their diet, and it makes vegetarian meals an appealing option for omnivores who are looking for more plant-based meals to add to their repertoire. A vegetarian diet is associated with lower risk factors for heart disease, which is America’s top killer. That’s probably because a healthy vegetarian diet--like a vegan diet--supplies fiber, vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants that guard against inflammation and oxidative stress.
You can count on our vegetarian bundle to provide a variety of plant foods, including whole grains, starchy veggies, pulses (the term for peas, lentils, and beans), nonstarchy veggies, nuts, seeds, and wholesome plant-based oils, such as avocado oil. In addition, the entrees in this bundle have between 9 and 12 grams of fiber--that’s up to 40 percent of your daily needs!
The protein in our vegetarian dishes ranges from 7 grams [this seems low for a meal, so please verify!] to 24 grams, and it all comes from whole foods, whether that’s chickpeas or real cheese. The combo of protein and fiber in vegetarian meals makes them a filling choice.
Whether you’re looking to eat meat less often or you’re committed to a vegetarian diet, you’ll love the taste, healthfulness, and ease of our vegetarian bundle.
