2018 February – Fytro: The many benefits of Lent!

Lent is one of the deeply symbolic periods within the Greek religious tradition that also contains a message about the need to look after your body: to detoxify it and as a result feel lighter. For many it’s a second chance at a “New Year’s resolution”: an opportunity for renewal through the adoption of a new lifestyle that’s synonymous with well-being, and the chance to change certain habits.

This renewal can come through the selection of a diet that provides your body with the valuable, energy packed nutrients that it needs to function optimally. An added benefit is that such a diet change can taste great too!

This combination of food that’s both good for you and tasty comes naturally to Fytro. We offer a comprehensive range of products that give your body the opportunity to capitalize on the benefits of fasting in a delicious way, while also ensuring that you meet your daily requirements of fibers, vitamins, minerals and trace elements.

Check out these top Fytro product recommendations during the Lent fasting period, (but not only!):

Fytro Soya Mince: For plump burgers, pasta sauces or a variety of other nutritious, balanced dishes, replace minced meat with soya mince. It is rich in plant proteins and a great source of potassium and magnesium.

Fytro Organic Soya Drink This is a 100% plant-based product rich in proteins and a great source of calcium. Suitable for vegetarians as well as for those who are lactose intolerant or allergic to milk. Enjoy it on its own or pour over cereals such as Fytro Oat Flakes, Crunchy Muesli and Bran Flakes for a nutritious and tasty start to your day.

Fytro Almond Drink: This is a 100% plant-based product, low in fat, lactose- and gluten-free and a source of vitamins E, B2, B12 and D. Try it plain or mixed in with juices, fruit or Fytro Muesli. It is a great milk substitute, especially for making fasting-friendly recipes, from mashed potatoes, drinks and creams, to sauces and soups.

Fytro Bulgur Wheat and Quinoa: A great base for tasty, fasting-friendly salads and for replacing rice in many recipes. Fytro Bulgur Wheat is a natural product perfectly aligned with today’s nutritional needs, as it is a good source of fiber and phosphorus, while also being rich in manganese. It has been pre-boiled, which means that it is easier for you to cook and digest. Likewise, Quinoa is a source of protein, fiber, magnesium, biotin and phosphorus. It has a high folic acid content and is gluten-free.
