Much-loved New Zealand brand Naked Kitchen has come to the rescue for Kiwis looking for healthy, nutritious and convenient meal solutions as we head into the winter season, with its brand-new range of locally made Naked Kitchen Eat Well chilled meals made to restore, comfort, nourish and calm.
Comprising four flavours – Green Pea, Broccoli, Spinach & Mint Soup; Tomato, Aubergine & Chickpea Bowl; Cauliflower, Coconut & Turmeric Dahl; and Mushroom, Quinoa & Puy Lentil Risotto – the meals are 100% plant-based, gluten-free, and packed with nutritious ingredients designed to help Kiwis feel healthier and happier.
True to Naked Kitchen’s philosophy, the Naked Kitchen Eat Well range uses premium authentic ingredients and no preservatives, artificial colours or flavours.
Each Eat Well flavour is designed to help nourish both the body and mind through good, honest food – whether it’s taking time to restore with the goodness of pea, broccoli and spinach blended with fresh mint; finding comfort in the delicious flavours of aubergine, tomato and simple legumes mixed with warming winter spices; enjoying a moment of calm with a dahl made with coconut and turmeric; or making a point to nourish with a mushroom, lentil and quinoa-packed risotto.
Taking just a few minutes to heat over the stovetop or in the microwave, Naked Kitchen Eat Well meals are the ideal convenient meal, while still delivering on flavour and nutrition.
The launch comes as new research continues to reveal that Kiwis are embracing plant-based eating, with the parent company of Naked Kitchen, Life Health Foods, revealing that one in three Kiwis are reducing their meat intake, citing health as the number one reason for making the switch.
Wellness is also top of mind more than ever, with 35% of New Zealanders indicating they are more concerned about health and wellbeing amidst the current climate in 2020.
“More and more, Kiwis are looking to incorporate healthy, plant-based foods into their diet, but with our busy schedules, it also needs to be simple,” said Mark Roper, Life Health Foods International Marketing Manager. “These meals offer an incredibly easy solution to serving nutritious, yummy food, without any of the admin involved.”
To complement Naked Kitchen Eat Well’s health benefits, the range is also more sustainable. Packaged in plastics resin #2 (high density polyethylene) - a first in NZ in the premium chilled soups and meals category – Naked Kitchen Eat Well’s packaging is recyclable under the Love NZ Soft Plastic Recycling Scheme.
The range joins Naked Kitchen’s existing line of chilled meals, which take inspiration from global flavours and ingredients, and sits alongside a range of Naked Locals Soups, made with fresh local vegetables grown by Kiwi farmers.
