)-- Nirvana Kitchen (http://www.nirvanakitchen.com) announces the launch of its vegan meal delivery service and a line of ready-to-eat vegan cuisine in selected retail stores to serve both vegan and health-conscious non-vegan consumers. The company is committed to building its loyal consumer base with taste, nutrition, convenience and transparency.
Taste – Specializing in vegan cuisine allows Nirvana Kitchen chefs to research, develop, test and optimize vegan recipes to create vegan dishes that satisfy even the pickiest palate. Nirvana Kitchen’s vegan products allow consumers to experience both traditional and ethnic inspired flavors.
Nutrition - All Nirvana Kitchen products are nutritionally balanced, rich in fiber, whole grains and legumes and made with fresh, locally sourced natural and organic ingredients.
Convenience – Nirvana Kitchen delivers vegan meals to consumers’ home or office with its meal delivery service. The line of ready-to-eat vegan cuisine sold in selected retail stores offers consumers an alternative, more economic way to eat healthy.
Transparency – Nirvana Kitchen provides clear nutrition and ingredient sourcing information for its products so that consumers know what is in their food and where the ingredients come from.
“We are truly passionate about our food. It's what we do,” said Nirvana Kitchen’s founder and CEO, June Zhao, PhD. “No matter what consumers choose, one thing will never change at Nirvana Kitchen: the ingredients are always the finest and the food is always wholesome and nutritious. We are committed to providing our consumers with healthy vegan food that is convenient, tasty, nutritious and transparent on nutrition and ingredient sourcing.”
June Zhao, a Chinese native with a PhD in Food Science from University of California, Davis and 17 years of food industry experience, started Nirvana Kitchen with a humble vision - make eating healthy, plant-based food more enjoyable and convenient for vegan and non-vegan consumers alike.
“Having grown up in China, one of the differences I noticed when I first came to the United States was the food we ate. I was amazed by how much animal based foods (beef, pork, chicken and dairy) were consumed in the United States compared to that in China where meals were mostly vegetables, grains and tofu with some meat for flavoring. Over the years, the differences have narrowed, however healthy, plant-based foods have yet to become a main staple of our diet here,” said Dr. June Zhao.
A new research published in the September 2014 issue of the British Journal of Nutrition reveals that 60 to 80 percent adults worldwide need to double fruit and vegetable intake. “Numerous studies have shown the health benefits of plant-based foods like vegetables, whole grains and legumes. However, personal experience tells me that it takes time and planning to regularly add healthy, plant-based food into our diet. Nirvana Kitchen’s ready-to-eat vegan food is complementary to any diet, vegan or non-vegan,” continued Dr. June Zhao.
Nirvana Kitchen meal delivery offers two types of meal plans: Healthy Choice and Vegan Foodies.
Healthy Choice meal plan is designed for those who want to add vegan food to their existing diet for a healthier diet (a flexitarian diet). Healthy Choice meals are lower in calories, higher in fiber and whole grains to deliver the maximum health benefits of vegan food.
Vegan Foodies meal plan is designed for time-crunched vegans who don’t want to sacrifice taste for convenience. Vegan Foodies meals use ingredients like tempeh, tofu and natural dairy or meat substitutes to please the palate and nutritional needs of full time vegans.
The company’s retail line of ready-to-eat vegan cuisine offers consumers with chef prepared, healthy vegan food at affordable prices.
