Plant-based ready meal delivery service allplants is rolling out a new Lighter Menu in time for Veganuary.
The new range is made up of vegan meals that contain at least two of your five-a-day, and less than 450kcal each.
The Green Goodness Bowl, for example, comes in at 393kcal. Served with garlic chilli kale and a pea and mint mash, the flash-frozen meal is a source of vitamin C and contains more than 23g protein.
The Spizy Szechuan Noodles – brown rice noodles in a tahini source, accompanied by a soya and mushroom mince, pak choi, edamame and peanuts – is high in vitamin C and calcium and contains more than 19g protein.
Other ready meals in the line include the Protein Bolognese Bowl, Roasted Veggie Lasagne, and Aubergine Parmigiana.
“It’s absolutely possible to get all of the nutrients your body needs in order to stay energised and healthy from a vegan diet,” said allplants nutritionist Aly Findlay. “There are also health benefits associated with a vegan diet, such as increased fibre and reduced saturated fat intake.
“As with any diet, the key is being mindful of the different nutrients you’re consuming, and varying them so you’re getting the complete range of micronutrients.”
