Summer veges are easy. Throwing together a salad can be as easy as opening a couple of packets - but in winter, the roasted, boiled and grilled veges we eat tend to take more work. And to make it harder, ready-made meals for those looking to eat-more plant-based in general are few, far between.
Local brand Naked Kitchen has put thought into that problem and come to the rescue. They've created a range of healthy, nutritious, plant-based chilled meals made to restore, comfort, nourish and calm.
The meals are 100% plant-based, gluten-free and made with premium ingredients. They've even thought of sustainability and the meals are packaged in recyclable soft-plastic.
Comprising four delicious flavours – 'Restore' Green Pea, Broccoli, Spinach & Mint Soup; 'Comfort' Tomato, Aubergine & Chickpea Bowl; 'Calm' Cauliflower, Coconut & Turmeric Dahl; and 'Nourish' Mushroom, Quinoa & Puy Lentil Risotto – the meals are packed with nutritious ingredients designed to help Kiwis feel healthier and happier.
The launch of the range comes as new research continues to reveal that Kiwis are embracing plant-based eating, with the parent company of Naked Kitchen, Life Health Foods, revealing that one in three Kiwis are reducing their meat intake, citing health as the number one reason for making the switch.
And, great news, they only take a few minutes to heat over the stovetop or microwave then they are ready to serve.
