How to Use Enrichables

Eating more nutritious foods is a challenge for most of us. Even the most health-minded meal planners have a hard time getting the vitamins, fiber, and protein they need into their diets. On top of busy schedules, and picky eaters in the family, making a well-balanced homemade meal can feel nearly impossible. Enrichables™ are made to give you a simple way to add more protein, kale, and fiber to recipes that already work for you and your family, so you don’t have to say goodbye to taco night or boxed mac and cheese.

Content Manager of Culinary Education, Sandy Wolner, is a registered dietitian and knows the importance of getting more nutrition into our favorite meals. See her recommendations for using Enrichables™ in your cooking.

Why You Need Protein

Protein helps you stay full longer because protein takes longer than carbs to break down in your body. The trick is distributing protein intake throughout the day. Adding a few scoops of Enrichables™ Pea Protein to your meals makes it easier to do that. They’re vegan, non-GMO, gluten-free, dairy-free, soy-free, made without nuts, and have no added fillers or flavors, making them a good choice for people who are sensitive to dairy or soy.

Ways to Use Protein Powder

“The key is to identify recipes that could use a boost of protein based on your needs,” says Sandy. “Not only low-protein dishes can be boosted. You can boost any recipe depending on the person and how much protein they need.”

Next, depending on the type of dish, you need to know when in the cooking process to add in your Enrichables™. And, because you”re adding a dry powder to your recipe, you may need to add a little more liquid to keep the consistency you expect. Let this list be your guide.

Drinks & Smoothies

Add before mixing and blending.

Sauces, Spreads, Dressings & Dips

Why You Need Leafy Greens and Fiber

Kale is rich in vitamins A, C, and K, as well as calcium and potassium while being low in calories. And, fiber promotes fullness and digestive health. Our Enrichables™ Kale & Fiber is made from freeze-dried kale and the prebiotic soluble fiber comes from chicory root

    Pretty interesting. I am normally good at getting veggies in, but this could be a great source also. Thanks for sharing.

    I have really like that you have made it easy for me to add kale to recipes in a form that not only keeps the nutrients but is edible. I can’t even taste it in my dishes. Thank you!!

    I am such a carb fiend so I am finding it REALLY helpful to be able to add Pea Protein to things like my morning oatmeal (packets of flavored Quaker Instant Oats which are full of Sugar and hardly any protein ) and to my bowl of pasta with butter and jar-sauce.

      Like that its soy free and pea protein. Would like to put in my Bannana walnut muffins with almond flour or add to my ground turkey. If flavorless, would be great for my niece who doesnt eat meat.

        Janay, That sounds awesome to put it in Banana Walnut Muffins. I’m just now starting to use this product myself, as a consultant I need to try it so I can tell me customers how I like it and how to use it.

    Do these enrichables change the flavor or texture of the food?
