Integrating Fruit and Vegetables into your mealtimes

This is a difficult time for many people for a host of reasons. We are all having to adapt to a new way of living and many changes in our day-to-day living.

With lockdown having an effect, there are difficulties facing all of us in different ways. One way this is having an impact is that some of the food products we usually buy may not be readily available.

When it comes to doing our weekly shop, you may have found yourself staring at empty shelves where some of your vital products would ordinarily be.

But this also presents an opportunity for you to change some of your eating habits and utilise other foods as the central element in some of your meals.

At Evolution Organics, we have long advocated making your diet that bit healthier by simply changing some important ingredients.

Fruit and vegetables are an obvious choice when it comes to enhancing the health of your meals. What’s more, you can benefit from antioxidants and vitamins provided by these foods. And though some local markets are closed, there are still local farms that are delivering fresh produce to your door. So be sure to take a look at some of the local options that are available to you.

One option that is really flexible is our superfood salad recipe. With a host of organic ingredients that can be mixed and matched, this is a truly nutritious meal.

What else might we be recommending at the minute? Well, it’s all about combining fruit and vegetables with nutritious value, with meal options that are truly delicious.

A bowl of tomato soup with a pepper on a table.

For example, take a look at this creamy tomato soup recipe. This is really good comfort food, while our homemade pumpkin and coconut soup recipe is equally appealing. And if you’re looking for something really healthy, give this brown lentil soup a try. This is rich in proteins and is suitable for vegans - the perfect healthy indulgence during lockdown.

A bowl of super greens soup

Other special soup recipes we have include minestrone and super greens - both of which are super healthy. And our smoothie suggestions are equally good. Our sweet morning smoothie recipe is a great thing to make as you start your day, and can help you start things off in the right way. And people wanting a protein boost should take a look through this Blueberry pie protein smoothie.

Salads are an obvious way to increase your healthy produce intake. Recipes such as this asparagus salad and our version of a cobb salad are both strong options for your kitchen.

A herby chicken, sweet potato and spelt stew in bowl with spork.

Feeling ambitious? Why not give our Chicken, Sweet Potato and Spelt stew a try. Packed with nutrients, this is a perfect healthy evening meal.

We also highly recommend this Asian Nutty Slaw. This recipe is vegan, vegetarian, paleo, gluten free and really is something special.

Our recipe section contains more than 100 different fantastic options for you to take a look at, so get inspired and embrace more fruit and vegetables in your diet today. You can also browse our full food and drink range, as well as our dedicated vegan products selection.
