Plant-based, low-carb, and intermittent fasting. These are the most commonly followed diet in the world. These particular diets have one thing in common: they have many restrictions. In a plant-based diet, the main focus is eating only greens with no animal by-products, while a low-carb diet is focused on protein than carbs. But did you know that you can still go on a diet without having to quit eating meat or lose your carbs? Well, you haven’t heard about the underrated Flexitarian diet!
We all know how hard it is to prepare meals, let alone when on a diet. That’s why Nutrition for Longevity creates Flexitarian Meal Plans that encourage users to eat plant-based foods while still allowing meat and other animal products in moderation.
The concept behind this type of meal plan is to provide Americans an alternative to a very restricting and potentially harmful diet. We tend to obsess over calories that we often forgot to include food that is high in fiber, fruits, and vegetables which may reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease and some cancers.
They create all their meals based on the Longevity Diet, a popular diet that includes mostly plant-based meals, but it also includes small portions of seafood periodically as a source of protein and fasting a few times a year.
The meals included in a Flexitarian Meal Plan have non-GMO, certified organic, or all-natural seeds from specialty suppliers that are personally vetted by the company to ensure you are getting the purest food possible. This process allows the company to promote sustainability — by knowing when, where, and how the ingredients of your food were grown. They also provide eco-friendly, recycled packaging.
How does the Flexitarian Meal Plan work?
Flexitarian meals are prepared for you depending on the subscription plan you choose, from three to five days. Each day will consist of Chef curated plans — Breakfast, Lunch, Dinner, and snacks formulated down to the macronutrient to give you optimal nutrition and promote health and longevity. Your food will arrive in recyclable packaging that is as eco-friendly as our food.
All the meals have at least six servings of fruits and veggies, 25 grams of fiber, and less than 30% calories from fat per day.
Dieting is never new in our vocabulary that it has even evolved into many different methods of controlling your food intake. But it doesn’t have to be limiting! Nutrition for Longevity allows us to have proper meals for whatever diet we are doing. With Flexitarian Meal Plans, the brand gives us the freedom to choose our food while allowing us to effectively transition towards plant-based diets.
