BOULDER, Colo., Aug. 22, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Green Chef Corporation, the Boulder-based organic meal kit company, announced today it will be offering a ketogenic-friendly plan to help support low-carb lifestyles. Green Chef is the first national company in the industry to make this diet plan available and will begin shipping Keto boxes across the United States on Aug. 28, 2017.
While the Keto diet has been around for over 100 years, a new generation is jumping on board seeking options for healthy weight management and low-carb lifestyles. The Keto macronutrient approach prioritizes healthy fats by targeting food intake at 75% fat, 20% protein, and 5% low-glycemic carbohydrates. This ratio of fats, proteins, and carbs is designed to help the body use ketones for energy instead of the usual glucose. Achieving this metabolic state (called ketosis) generally enables the body to burn more fat.
Green Chef CEO/Founder, Michael Joseph, said: "After much interest from customers about the keto diet, we decided to put the time, effort, and research into making this an option for them. We have consulted with a number of nutritionists and chefs to create delicious meals that will fit into the keto lifestyle, and we are excited to be the first national meal kit company to provide this plan as an option."
Green Chef Keto is both dairy- and gluten-free, making it the company's third gluten-free offering (Gluten-Free, Paleo, and now Keto). Green Chef Keto will sell for $14.99 per serving, plus shipping, and will generally fall into a range of 400-600 calories per serving. Keto recipes include: crispy coconut-breaded chicken fingers with curry aïoli, juicy pork chops seasoned with rosemary and mustard-caraway spices, and savory sole roulade served alongside bacon-roasted green beans.
