Supplementing Your Jumpstart Meals

Supplementing Your Jumpstart Meals

Jumpstart meals provide a great base meal, but supplementing them with leafy greens, salads, and other vegetables can help keep you full, and makes the meals more satisfying and nutritious overall. Try some of these quick, easy, and budget-friendly ideas for supplementation:

1. Try blanching collard greens, kale, or turnip greens and making mini wraps. This tends to be easiest with collards, but be creative and choose whichever greens you prefer! Mini wraps go best with the Creole Red Beans and Rice, African Stew, Kale Peanut Bowl, Asian Stewed Tofu, Thai Drunken Vegetables, and Japanese Vegetable Curry.  To blanch your greens, dip into a pot of boiling water for 5–10 seconds, and set out to cool. You can make your wraps whatever size you want.

If you like the collard green wraps, check out these resources for more ideas:

2. Try the same thing, but with nori sheets. Tearing the sheets in halves or quarters is often easier. If you like nori sheets, check out these resources for creative nori ideas. Some of these wraps are light and mostly veggie filled, making them great snacks.

3. Always have salad pre-washed, cut, and chopped in your fridge, along with a plant-based, oil-free dressing. Throwing a salad on top of, or to the side of, a Jumpstart meal is easiest when you’re prepared. Set aside some time every few days to restock your salad bowl and supplies.

Last Friday night we launched the new version of our PlantPure Entrees on Amazon, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive.  We are humbled by some of the great reviews, and are also taking note of the suggestions people have provided.  
One thing we noticed was a trend of some of our meals being delivered with seals that were not fully intact.

I try not to be overly dramatic in my writing, but I think most of us would agree we live in troubled times. We might define these troubles differently, but most of us have this sense. Most distressing in my view, however, are not the actual problems we face, but our inability to work together to find their solutions.
