The Power of Plant Protein – Better For You

Posted On: July 2, 2019

Basic American Foods takes pride in treating our employees like family, and we enable and encourage our employees to prioritize their health as much as possible through initiatives like wellness programs, an on-site medical clinic, smoking cessation programs, and various other health benefits we offer. But our commitment to wellness doesn’t just end there! It’s also important to us that we give our customers the ability to make and offer foods that are both healthy and delicious.

Incorporating more vegetables into your diet has proven to have favorable effects on your health. A flexitarian diet, which is a mainly plant-based diet with meat and animal products in moderation, is a great option to improve your health without making drastic, all-or-nothing lifestyle changes, and it has become increasingly more mainstream!

Overall, the American Institute for Cancer Research put it simply when they said, “the research shows one thing very clearly: we all need to eat more plants and less meat.”

With that in mind, we continue to invest in innovative, scratch-quality foods that are beneficial for our health. Our high-protein lentil penne pasta has just 3 simple ingredients – lentils, rice, and pea protein – and contains no artificial flavors, colors, or preservatives! BAF and our talented employees are working hard to bring together deliciousness, with healthy, sustainable plant protein foods.
