New Summer FIT bowls!
New Summer FIT bowls!
The latest addition to grace the fridges of Crussh are our brand new summer fit bowls… Think Indian street food vibes with a healthy twist. We’ve got two new flavours, Chicken tikka and Vegan spiced chickpea and let me tell you, these salad bowls are packing a flavoursome punch!
So, what makes a fit bowl ‘fit’?
Well, apart from being darn right delicious (don’t forget you are what you eat 😉), our new fit bowls are made with a carefully thought out combination of balanced macros. Not sure what a macro is? Let us explain…
Macronutrient or ‘Macro’: a type of food required in large amounts in the diet. The three major macronutrients in nutrition are carbohydrates, fats and proteins. These three major macro-nutrients are essential for a balanced healthy diet.
- Balanced carbs - we’ve balanced spiced basmati rice with lentils -high in protein & fibre, and cauliflower rice -contributes to 1 of your 5 a day, and contains impressive amounts of vitamin C, vitamin k, beta-carotene, and much more whilst supporting healthy digestion and detoxification. Just a couple of benefits to this combo then…
- Protein - great for maintaining or building muscle mass, protein is the building blocks of our bodies. Our chicken tikka fit bowl contains 26g of protein per serving, whilst our plant-based chickpea fit bowl contains 16g per serving, #STRONG!
- Good fats - fat is an essential part of any diet, and without fat our bodies would cease to operate. Fat is a source of essential fatty acids, which the body can't make itself. A balanced diet should include healthy monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats whilst minimising saturated fat. Our fit bowls provide a good source of healthy fats whilst remaining low in saturated fat… TICK!
- 5 a day: Fruit and vegetables are a great source of vitamins, minerals and fibre, and are an important part of a healthy, balanced diet. Eating plenty of fruit and veg helps keep us healthy. Each fit bowl contains 2 of your 5 a day so grab a piece of fruit for afters and you’re over halfway!
They do say life is all about balance and I think we can safely say our new fit bowls got that… So, happy munching friends!
