Next Day Nutrition Review
"You may have heard about the numerous benefits of consuming a plant-based diet in the media. People who consume plant-based diets are at reduced risk of developing certain health conditions including heart disease, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and certain types of cancer. The Next Day Nutrition meals make it extremely simple to include more healthy plant-based foods into your diet. Each meal contains at least three different types of fruits and vegetables. As a dietitian, this makes my heart sing because this means that there is a rainbow of phytonutrients in each and every meal that Next Day Nutrition provides. Phytonutrients are good stuff found in plant foods that have proposed benefits for health. You cannot get these compounds, such as lycopene, lutein, resveratrol, isoflavones, and anthocyanidins, in your typical multivitamin. They are best found in foods like tomatoes, leafy greens, berries, peanuts, peppers, soybeans, and all of the other plant foods. Every meal served by Next Day Nutrition is rich in ingredients that contain many different phytonutrients.
I reviewed the menu at Next Day Nutrition and found the meals to be nutrient-dense and to contain a nice balance of carbohydrates, protein, and fats. The fats in these meals come from heart-healthy sources such as olive oil, avocado, flax, and walnuts. Worried about your iron intake? Most meals combine sources of non-heme iron with foods that contain vitamin C for increased absorption. The meals contain varied sources of lean proteins from nuts, seeds, whole grains, and legumes. Each and every meal at Next Day Nutrition contains rich sources of fiber that are excellent for digestive health. If you feel like something sweet to end your meal, they also offer several delicious plant-based dessert options that are free of refined grains (like white flour) and primarily sweetened with dates instead of white sugar.
Whether you are interested in consuming colorful plant-based meals for health reasons, compassion for animals, concerns for the environment, or all of the above, Next Day Nutrition meals will meet your needs. I wish that I could sample every item on the menu! I am proud to put my name behind the nutritional value of the meals provided. To your health!"
