How does Chef Ami accommodate vegetarian options?
A lot of people have decided to eat a vegetarian diet, but they’re often concerned about finding great food choices. Chef Ami has dedicated our meal kit delivery services to include a wide range of options so everyone can get what they need. Today, we’re going to explore the most common vegetarian meal delivery options that are available, depending on the specific recipe.
Types of Vegetarian Meal Delivery Options
At Chef Ami, we feel that it’s necessary for all healthy eating habits and choices to have an option.
Here are some of the vegetarian options in our meal delivery kits:
Since chicken is such a popular protein, it probably comes as no surprise that vegan chicken is one of the most popular vegetarian replacement items. Depending on the type that you use, it may be primarily made from soy or wheat gluten, and may include dehydrated vegetables, garlic, herbs, and leavening agents.
Just like vegan chicken does with the most popular poultry, vegan fish is designed to emulate the taste, texture, and appearance of traditional fish. It can also be mixed with various items to give it a particular flavor, and even fish lovers very often can’t tell the difference.
This naturally gluten-free vegan favorite is made from soybean curds and contains no cholesterol. Not only is tofu a popular source of protein, it’s also an excellent source of iron and calcium. Although there are other replacements available, this continues to be a go-to for many people.
Portobello mushrooms are popular alternatives for people who want to use them in meals such as veggie burgers and fajitas, or even as a replacement for tofu. They’re lower in calories, fat, and sodium while being free from dairy, nuts, and soy. Plus, studies have shown that they lower the risk of certain cancers.
In recent years, this large tropical fruit has become increasingly popular as a substitute for meat. In addition to containing tons of nutrients, it can be cooked, cut up, and shredded in a similar fashion as you can do with chicken and pork.
Yes, pasta is perfectly fine to use in a vegetarian or vegan diet. However, many people are concerned with the number of calories and carbs found in their favorite pastas. This is a big reason why so many have switched to the use of spaghetti squash, which can emulate the texture and properties of spaghetti.
Benefits of Vegetarian Meal Delivery Kits
With Chef Ami, you can always be certain that you’re getting meals that are healthy and convenient. Check out some of the most important benefits of our vegetarian meal delivery services:
Delivered to Your Door
You can’t beat the convenience of having vegetarian meal kits delivered right to your door. Simply select the number of meal kits that you would like to have sent each week and wait for them to arrive.
A big selling point of eating vegetarian or vegan meals is that they’re often a healthier alternative to what you’ll find in restaurants and packaged foods. These meals use organic ingredients whenever possible, which are a lot better for you than the processed foods that we’re often subjected to.
Locally Grown Food
Chef Ami only uses locally grown foods when creating our meal kits. This helps support farmers in the community, in addition to workers used to harvest the crops, handle transportation, and all other parts of the process. Using locally grown food also allows us to provide fresh, delicious ingredients in every one of our meal kits. You won’t find this quality of food in other meal delivery services.
All of the meal options available are delivered to you in the precise amounts of each ingredient needed for that particular recipe. This allows you to have better portion control because you won’t tend to overeat and food won’t go to waste.
Our meal kits offer a variety of delicious recipes each week that you and your family will love. Each one will include a recipe card with step-by-step instructions so that you can make each meal with minimal effort in about 30 minutes.
Teach Good Cooking and Eating Habits
Vegetarian meal kits will teach you and your family to improve your eating behaviors. By eating a home-cooked meal with high quality ingredients a few times per week, this will do wonders for your health and energy levels.
Better for the Planet and the Community
If you want to lower your carbon footprint, ordering from a meal kit delivery service is a way to achieve this. Between fewer fossil fuels being used for the transportation of food across vast distances and reusable packages that are switched out with each delivery, you’ll be doing your part to help the environment.
