I don’t know whether it was starting Coffee Cake and Cardio or just getting older, but I’ve learned over the years just how diverse each our diets can be. We each have different tastes and needs, but the great thing is that most of us have the ability to make decisions based on those needs.
I personally don’t have dietary limitations, but I have a number of friends who have to eat gluten free, lactose free, or have made the decision to eat a vegetarian or vegan diet. We all have such different needs, but I love that there are now so many foods and products out there that meet the needs of a variety of diets.
Weight Watchers Smart Ones, which is always looking to make their products better, now has vegetarian and gluten free options as well as products with fiber. The Smart Ones vegetarian products, which includes the Vegetable Fried Rice I love, is great for those who do not eat meat.
My favorite Weight Watchers Smart Ones, the Sante Fe Style Rice and Beans, is actually both gluten free and has 4g of fiber in it! I love that one meal can meet the needs of multiple dietary needs and also tastes wonderful! The Smart Ones website actually allows you to search through meals based on a number of nutritional options, so you can determine what meals will work best for you and your diet.
Do you look for particular foods to meet your dietary needs?
