Meeting your nutritional needs with veestro
There are certain nutrients such as vitamin B12, calcium, iron, and zinc that those on a primarily plant-based diet should incorporate when planning their meals. Luckily, we have on-air nutrition, food and lifestyle expert Mia Syn of Nutrition By Mia share a few helpful tips on how you can integrate these essential nutrients adequately into your plant-based diet for optimal health.
For example, calcium. "Contrary to popular belief, calcium is found in more foods than just dairy and needed for more processes than just maintaining bone health. Tofu, soybeans, soy milk and leafy greens are all good sources of calcium and found abundantly in many Veestro meals. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body and needed for muscle, nerve and vascular function."
Mia recommends the following Veestro meals for their calcium content: Savory Croquettes, Oatmeal Breakfast Pie, Red Curry with Tofu, Enchilada Casserole, Eggplant Casserole, Kale and Quinoa Salad, Chick'n Quesadilla, Spinach Pie.
