We recently had the privilege of having Rebecca review our new Spring Menu, so without further ado here are her top picks and tips!
The main reason I, as a Dietitian, love Youfoodz and will often recommend their meals to my time-poor clients, is the health and nutrition of the Youfoodz meals. Overall, the options on the Youfoodz menu are healthy & nourishing. Their main meals are packed full of wholesome veggies and many contain lean proteins and low GI, wholegrain carbohydrate options. Not only do they use healthy ingredients like seeds and nuts that are loaded with protein, iron and other minerals which add amazing texture to their meals but they flavour their meals with natural ingredients like herbs and spices, which have incredible health benefits. Youfoodz believe in the idea “Let food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food” and I truly think they have achieved this.
The new lunch and dinner options from the Youfoodz Spring Menu are extremely healthy and nutritious and have great veggie content. My top 3 picks from the new Spring Menu are:
Youfoodz receive top marks for using healthy ingredients like quinoa in the Crumbed Chipotle Chicken, which is a low GI, high protein carbohydrate that provides sustained energy release and excellent blood sugar control, as well as almond meal and pistachios which greatly boost the mineral content of the Pistachio & Cranberry Turkey Rissoles.
I also love that Youfoodz avoid artificial & unhealthy flavouring agents instead using natural ingredients like herbs, spices and different citrus juices to flavour their meals, like in the Super Chicken Slaw.
It’s also great to see that Youfoodz have added some options to the Spring Menu that are healthy alternatives to your typical takeaway, such as the Rustico Chicken Pizza which is topped with veggies like tomatoes & mushrooms.
Even though I love the new Youfoodz Spring Menu, I still have some old favourites from their previous menus including:
