We live in a world saturated with clickbait and buzzwords. In all the noise, it’s easy to forget the significance that words carry. The word “wholesome” is a great example. Sure it sounds nice, but what does it actually mean?
Wholesome: Promoting health or well-being of mind, body and spirit
Health encompasses SO many things, but let’s focus on nutrition for a moment. What’s great about this word is that it isn’t giving any specific nutrition advice, or touting the benefits of a specific trendy superfood or ingredient. It points towards holistic health. While this may look different for everyone, there are some fundamental elements that most people need: protein, fat, and carbohydrates, or collectively called macronutrients. Eating a balanced diet with all three macronutrients will keep you energized, help you recover from injury or exercise, maintain a strong immune system, and more.
Luckily, you don’t have to think about meeting these crucial nutrient requirements while we’re delivering to your door. Westerly meals are full of energy-boosting carbohydrates, packed with protein, and fortified with healthy fats. This is backed by our recent nutrient analysis conducted by Amanda LaPorte MS, local nutritionist and health advocate. Introducing Westerly meals into your daily routine will not only add key nutrients into your diet, but also give you the peace of mind that you are eating well and taking care of your body. Having a complete, healthy diet and extra time to invest in other aspects of your life makes life easier, more fulfilling and is the embodiment of wholesomeness.
