Straight from the Root is a completely new product out on the market, and it is changing the game fast. I have been fortunate enough to be sampling the SFTR product for months now, and let me tell you, there’s no going back. I cannot imagine life without my SFTR packages. Sounds a little melodramatic, I know, but this stuff is unlike anything that is out there, and here’s why:
- The vegetables are already cooked without any additives whatsoever. This allows me to have an incredibly healthy food option at my convenience.
- The vegetables are already cooked. Oh, yeah I already mentioned that. But this needs to be mentioned more than once because that little fact is a lifesaver every time. If I am having people over, and I need to make many dishes in a pinch, Straight From the Root has my back every time. It takes literally all of the prep work out of the most messy, time-consuming vegetables.
- When I was diagnosed with PCOS, health became my top priority, specifically my nutrition. I wanted to focus on eating whole, real foods that were gluten-free, autoimmune protocol friendly, organic, and GMO-free. The SFTR products hit all of these requirements for me, which allowed me to no longer have to stress about prepping large amounts of vegetables ahead of time. As long as I had my package of SFTR veggies around, I knew I’d be ok.
- For those of us who are or have been insulin resistant at some point in our lives, eating a diet rich in whole foods, especially hardy, nutrient-dense vegetables is super important. The SFTR vegetables are extremely nutrient dense, root vegetables that will keep me fuller for a lot longer without spiking blood sugar levels.
- Speaking of nutrient density, it is so easy to eat a whole food diet and still not get all of the nutrients you need to heal you and keep you healthy. SFTR veggies are not only organic, but they are cooked using the sous vide method. They are cooked at a specific temperature for a specific period of time in a water bath. This not only allows them to be cooked perfectly, but also keeps all of the antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals IN THE BAG! You no longer are losing all of the nutrition from the vegetable to the high heat cooking process such as roasting or steaming.
So now you see what I mean. Straight from the Root takes the idea of “farm to table” to the next level. The guess work and the excuses about making a commitment to your health no longer exist when all you have to do is open the package and eat.
