Spring Essentials: add these goodies to your diet (and see how we did it)!

Hello, Summer ’19! The season isn’t officially here yet, but as we welcome the days of fun in the sun,
it’s important that we change a few habits in order to live our best, healthiest lives. During this
transition phase, we start letting go of thick soups and other meals that keep us warm and full,
replacing them with amazing fresh goodies that Spring brings to the table.

That’s exactly what we did while creating Fit Food’s Spring Menu, and now it’s time to share a few
treats that will keep you light and refreshed, full of energy to go out on the town or to keep up with the
kids on their school break – or both! Shall we take a look on our Spring/Summer essentials?

Açaí

Can’t deny our Brazilian roots! High in antioxidants and fiber, this delicious treat has been getting
more and more popular outside Brazil and is a great alternative to ice cream. You can have it as
dessert, a snack or for breakfast, but careful not to add too many sweets and toppings! That’s why we
keep it simple, tasty and healthy with our Açaí Bowl with Granola made in the house.

Tahini

We love tahini, so much so that we use it in almost every dressing. It’s an amazingly rich source of
protein, vitamins B and E, magnesium, iron and calcium. You can also use tahini to make hummus
like our Garlic or Roasted Squash Hummus that are an absolute hit with the the customers!

Plantain

This fruit often passes off as a banana, but while they’re indeed similar, plantain has many benefits of
its own and it’s usually cooked. It’s so versatile that we’ve added it to our Trout Burger for great
texture and flavour! Plantains are potassium-rich, high in antioxidants, vitamins C, A and B6, and help
regulate the digestive system – and because they’re more slowly digested, they keep us satisfied for
longer, helping with weight control!

Cauliflower

Two words: incredibly versatile! This vegetable is low-carb and has an impressive amount of nutrients,
such as fiber and vitamins C, K and B6. Studies show that it fights inflammation and helps avoid heart
and brain diseases, and even cancer risk. Besides steaming and roasting, you can also use
cauliflower to replace food that isn’t as healthy. We always use Cauliflower Rice in our meals, and
the new Beef Stroganoff with Creamy Cauliflower Mash is much lighter because we use this
amazing vegetable instead of potatoes.

Daikon

Known as the Oriental radish, daikon promotes digestion and respiratory health, boosts immunity,
lowers sugar levels and helps maintain blood pressure levels while also reducing cancer risk. We love
soups here at Fit Food, so for Spring and Summer, we came up with a Keto Chicken Noodle Soup
with daikon and other low-carb and light ingredients.

Then we’ll let one of our dear customers do the talking: “Over the years, I have encountered many people who tell me that they want to start making healthier food choices (either due to personal choice or doctor recommended). However, they always include a BUT...for instance, ‘I want to eat healthy, BUT I don’t like to cook. Cooking is not one of my strengths. I’d prefer to do anything other than cook. I don’t want to spend hours in the kitchen. I don’t want to eat the same boring food everyday. Healthy food doesn’t taste as good. I don’t have time. I am too busy. I don’t know where to start.’ And, the list goes on. Last month, I discovered Fit Food. As someone with a variety of food restrictions (grains, gluten, dairy, etc), I am always hesitant about ordering my food from food delivery services and restaurants. Fit Food extinguished any and all of my worries. I simply emailed a list of the ingredients I could NOT consume to Mariana, and within a day or so, a menu was created just for ME. The menu was then sent back to me for approval. I was able to look it over and request the changes I desired. All of the smoothies and meals that I received were fresh, nutritious, and delicious. They were well packaged and included reheating instructions (when required). If you want a solution to all of the excuses I mentioned above, I’d highly recommend Fit Food! It’s a fantastic way to jumpstart your healthy living journey.” - Laura Stolf, Ambassador of Well-Being. 💚

The meat was good too, once you put the chimichurri sauce it was tasty. Now I love my desserts and I would have eaten the whole tray of both muffins [Gluten free Coconut Chia and Chocolate Mocha].” - Julia Bosa, BA(Hons), RIB(Ont) / Contract & Developer Surety at Masters Insurance Limited.
