To get more New Zealanders eating nutritious and tasty food, the Heart Foundation has partnered with My Food Bag and launched a delicious new range of heart-healthy meals.
Developed with nutritional advice and expertise from the Heart Foundation, these new heart-healthy meals align with the principles of a Mediterranean style of eating, well known for its heart health benefits.
With a delicious mix of nutrient-dense vegetables, healthier grains and the use of healthy fats from the likes of salmon and fish, nuts and seeds, avocados and olive oil, the dishes are packed full of flavour from herbs and spices to maximize the goodness without compromising the taste.
Jagdish Mehta and his wife Bina have been My Food Bag customers since Jagdish was diagnosed with heart issues several years ago. The couple were really pleased at how easy and convenient eating healthily could be and they enjoyed taking their healthy lifestyle a step further with this new range.
“I love how the team at the Heart Foundation and My Food Bag have collaborated to make it easy and convenient for us to eat a more heart-healthy and well-balanced diet. We are thrilled they have partnered to provide people like us with excellent quality food and introduce us to interesting and exciting ingredients that are heart-healthy and delicious,” he said.
My Food Bag co-founder Nadia Lim is loving the opportunity to get even more great ingredients and plant-based meals on the menu. “We’ve always loaded our My Food Bag recipes with plenty of fresh veggies and local goodness and we’re excited to get Kiwis eating even more plant-rich and heart healthy foods.”
My Food Bag’s ‘My Choice’ menu includes a choice of three heart-healthy meal options each week. Some of the exciting meals include Salmon Fillet with Roasted Pumpkin, Fennel & Parsley Yoghurt and Veggie Koftas with Chermoula Cauliflower & Spinach Salad.
