The key part in planning a nutritional diet that is sustainable is to still enjoy the food that we eat. It’s hard to enjoy and stick with a diet plan when you don’t enjoy the taste.
Get more protein into your daily diet
An easy way to up your nutrition game is by adding a plant-based protein, like Vega, to your daily routine. Protein powders aren’t just for athletes, they’re an easy and convenient way to increase your protein intake.
When it comes to finding a delicious plant-based protein, Vega Original Protein is the best way to get more for your dollar. It’s a great price and each serving has 25g of protein, zero sugar, and 3g of fiber. Even better, Vega Original Protein is rich & creamy, no clumps or grit – so it’s a seriously delicious way to get more protein into your daily diet. Whatever your nutrition goals are incorporating Vega Original Protein is the perfect addition to your routine.
Keep your carb and calorie intake under control
Another easy way to support your overall health and wellness is to keep an eye on the amount of added sugar and carbohydrates we consume daily. Consumer research shows that more than half of shoppers are looking for foods with less sugar and more than a third look for fewer carbohydrates on nutrition labels.
To those following the Keto diet or just looking to make nutritious choices alike, Mission Foods’ new Zero Net Carbs tortillas are a great option. They are not only zero net carbs and zero sugar, but also Keto-certified, high in fiber and low in calories and taste amazing.
These tortillas are offered in two delicious flavors: Original — the flavor Mission customers know and love, and Sundried Tomato Basil — packed with zesty sundried tomatoes and fresh basil flavors to ensure consumers can lose the carbs without losing taste.
Mission Foods’ Zero Net Carbs tortillas are available in stores across the U.S. and further the company’s legacy of innovating healthy, delicious, high-quality food that everyone can enjoy.
Snacking without feeling guilty
Snacking can be an issue for some people, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t make it nutritious.
