How do we define Reduced Carb Meal Plans?
Although there are many variations of what constitutes a reduced carb diet, our definition of reduced carb is a recipe that is free of pasta, couscous, white rice, breads, breading, tortillas, and potatoes. We use minimal amounts of flour (as thickeners) and natural sweeteners. Under the guidance of our Registered Dieticians, we do include nutrient rich carbs such as sweet potatoes, beans, and legumes.
As we implemented this feature, we quickly realized that many of our recipes have been lower carb all along. We are also adding more reduced carb recipes every month and all of these recipes follow our guidelines of healthy recipes for easy weeknight meals!
How to we define a Gluten Free Meal?
Our Gluten Free recipes (GF) do not use ingredients that commonly contain gluten. While we have many other recipes that could easily be made GF by using gluten-free ingredients, such as gluten-free pasta, we have not included those at this time. Please note we do include in our GF options recipes that use soy sauce (or tamari) and salad dressings as GF versions of these ingredients are widely available.
As with Reduced Carb, we are adding new recipes every month and will be continuing to enhance our GF options.
Happy and healthy eating everyone!
