Read below to see what I got from Thistle this week and how it really tasted
Lately, I've made the choice to stick to a nutritious diet. Bye-bye, greasy takeout and frozen meals!
I've really been trying to cook fresh daily, but there are times when I just don't have the time. That's when I rely on Thistle - they provide plant-based, nutritious, ready-to-eat meals delivered right to my doorstep.
I discovered Thistle through my friend, who's a nutritionist – she’s always keeping me up to date on nutrition and has told me to try out Thistle a few times. Ever since my first box, I’ve been hooked.
After long work weeks or coming home from a vacation, I love to stock up on Thistle meals. It's nice to settle back into the day-to-day without being stressed about an empty fridge or not knowing what to cook.
To give you a better idea of what Thistle is all about, I’m going to show you what was in my latest healthy haul for the week. Here’s what I’m eating with Thistle:
Breakfast: Steel Cut Oats with Berry Lemon Compote
Although oatmeal isn't the most exciting dish, the Berry Lemon Compote made this a surprisingly delicious, hearty breakfast - not to mention that the seeds added a nice crunchy texture that made the oatmeal genuinely mouthwatering.
The serving size was perfect – it kept me satiated for hours. Plus, oatmeal serves as an excellent source of dietary fiber and has many health benefits, such as lowering blood sugar and cholesterol. I took Thistle's Fight Shot with lemon and ginger afterward – it gave me the kick I needed at 7 am. I was ready to start the day!
Lunch: Banh Mi Salad Bowl with Sesame Baked Tofu
To me, there's nothing better than a nutritious bowl for lunch packed with veggies and a good source of protein. Thistle's Banh Mi Salad Bowl with Sesame Baked Tofu is vegan, gluten-free, and dairy-free and includes 24g of protein!
Thistle’s meals are packaged to bring on the go, so I was able to enjoy the bowl in the park while getting some sun. The crisp greens topped with shredded cabbage, cucumber, radish, and carrots were exactly what I needed to gain new energy for the day.
Afternoon: Mezze Platter
Instead of snacking on chips or chocolate, I snacked on Thistle's garlicky, tangy, and savory hummus that had an incredibly smooth texture and paired unbelievably well with the seed crackers.
I had Thistle's Mezze Platter right after I got back from the gym, and it really helped me control my cravings – it was the perfect amount of food for an afternoon snack without feeling too heavy!
Dinner: Adobo Rice & Veg Bowl with Adobo Pinto Beans
I like my dinners warm, so I heated the Adobo Rice & Veg Bowl in a pan for about 2-3 minutes which was super easy. I honestly would've had no time to prepare this nourishing, balanced meal myself, so I appreciated that it was sitting in the fridge, ready for me to eat.
My favorite part of this meal was the dressing. It was a cool chipotle ranch dressing that tastes sooo good. I would put this on everything! Plus, there were 23 grams of protein in this meal - all derived from plants! It's so nice not having to think about what's for dinner.
Dessert: Almond Cherry Moringa Fudge
I didn't expect this to be so delicious because it's gluten-free and made with unsweetened dark chocolate, but it was so thick and fudgy! It tasted unbelievably good! I only ate half of it to satisfy my sweet tooth and kept the other half for the next day.
Thistle’s desserts let me indulge guilt-free! So instead of shoving sugar-packed, high-calorie cakes into my mouth, I enjoy their light desserts that are 100% vegan.
