At Zero Doubt Club, we strive to provide healthy, delicious, satisfying meals that fit easily into our client’s busy lifestyles. But we also know that when it comes to healthy eating, there is no one-size-fits-all approach. Depending on your individual fitness goals, level of exercise, and taste preferences, you may want to add to or supplement your Zero Doubt Club meals with some additional healthy foods.
Whether you’re still feeling a little hungry after lunch, you’d like to add more protein or healthy fat to your diet, or just want more variety, there are lots of great ways to make our Zero Doubt Club meals even healthier and more delicious!
For Adding Protein
If you’re very active, particularly with weight training, you may find yourself wanting to eat more protein and help build muscle. Protein also helps increase your feeling of satisfaction after a meal and during the day. Here are some easy ingredients that add healthy, tasty protein to any meal.
Hard Boiled Eggs
Eggs are an incredibly efficient source of protein, with 6 to 8 grams of protein for around just 70 calories. Boiled eggs work especially well on salads, but you can also add them to noodle and rice dishes, and bowls.
Rich in protein and omega-3 fatty acids, canned tuna is a great ingredient for adding healthy protein. Simply add a quarter of a can at a time to a salad or other entrée.
Although many of our salads and other entrees already include a healthy bean, you can always throw in a little extra. Just a half cup of black beans has 8 grams of protein. Drain a can of chickpeas, black, red, or white beans and mix some into your meal.
For Adding Healthy Fat
Fats are the last of the micronutrients to leave the digestive tract, which means that eating healthy fats leaves you feeling fuller for longer. In addition, good fats can also help lower blood pressure, improve heart health, and more! Some great healthy fats to add to your meals are:
Packed with fiber, potassium, and healthy fats, avocados are a tasty superfood that make a welcome addition to many dishes. Add chunks or slices of avocado to salads, breakfasts, and bowls.
Almonds, cashews, walnuts, peanuts, and pecans are just some of the nuts that provide tasty, filling health benefits to any meal. If you want some variety, buy a tub or bag of mixed roasted nuts to use at your disposal.
Full-fat yogurt is rich and flavorful while also providing a range of healthy fats, protein, magnesium, and probiotics. Avoid fat free yogurt as it is often pumped with sugar and other additives.
For Adding Variety
We know that our Zero Doubt Club meals are delicious, but sometimes you may want a little variety, especially if you’re ordering multiple of the same meal in a week. Here’s a few tasty, healthy extras you can add to your meals.
Besides being delicious, adding a few dashes of your favorite hot sauce has myriad health benefits including boosting metabolism and improving immune health.
Pickles, banana peppers, olives, or other jarred veggies can add a bright crunch to your meal as well as helping you incorporate more vegetables into your diet.
In small amounts, mayo can be a healthy addition to your meal, it’s also amazingly versatile. You can make a fun sauce by mixing mayo with hot sauce, citrus juice, pesto, or other condiments of your choice.
