A Beginner’s Guide to Diet Food

You’ll want to choose food that’s not only nutritious and meets your diet requirements, but actually taste good, too! Lucky for you, at Nashua Nutrition, we have both.
We have a wide selection of high protein, low carb food, but all those choices can be overwhelming to a beginner. We compiled a list to help you get started! We recommend having a few products from each category below. That way you’ll always have a healthy option on hand to get you through the day.
Stay on track with your weight loss goals – morning, noon, and night! Whether you’re following the Keto or IPA diet or you’re gluten free, stock up on the most popular meals below.
Oatmeal is a hearty meal that most enjoy for breakfast but could also be enjoyed for other meals depending on your mood. Many people like the Maple Brown Sugar and the Apples and Cinnamon.
Not everyone is a fan of oatmeal, so a hearty, protein packed pancake is a good alternative. Golden Delicious and Chocolate Chip are some of our customer’s favorites!
Proti-Thin High Protein Fusilli
Who ever said you can’t enjoy pasta while on a diet? What we love most about this dish is it’s versatile. You can enjoy it during the hot summer months as a cold pasta salad or as warm comfort food in the colder months. Make it your own by adding your own vegetables like cherry tomatoes and fresh herbs and seasoning.
HealthSmart Vegetable Chili
Not only is this chili dish high protein and fiber and low in carbs, but it’s also vegetarian and IPA unrestricted. Enjoy the flavors of tomato, bell peppers, onion, and garlic for a flavor packed, but healthy meal!
Don’t let your cravings get the best of you and throw off all your hard work! Instead, keep a variety of sweet and salty snack options handy. Here are some to start with.
