Why Nutritious Soups Should Be Your Go-To Work Lunch

Why Nutritious Soups Should Be Your Go-To Work Lunch

The work lunch hour should be an opportunity to unwind and relax, with a filling meal and time to recharge the batteries. Despite the importance of this, there is all manner of distractions and issues which regularly arise. From the complications of daily tasks to time-consuming meal prep, things are rarely simple. Selecting a work-appropriate meal is easier said than done but thankfully, with Pow Food, this is no longer a major issue. With everything from veggie-packed British favourites to protein-fuelled Mediterranean delights, there are options for all preferences.

Assorted soup options are at the very core of our offering, so continue reading for a selection of reasons to consider this warm and nourishing mealtime favourite.

Why Pow Food?

Whereas many catering companies or meal providers will place an emphasis on quantity over quality, this couldn’t be further from our ethos at Pow. Committing to the supply of delicious yet nutritious meals and snacks, we can even provide convenient flavour-packed lunches for staff working from home. Both award-winning on a national scale and trusted by our local long-term partners, we’re always happy to take on specific requests and needs, whether that be on-site catering, specific dietary requirements, or large-scale bookings.

The varied selection of savoury and sweet culinary options we supply is constantly growing and evolving with the needs of our clients and the wider world of catering nutrition. Though you can be sure each of our options is loaded with nutrition and mentally-stimulating ingredients, the rich flavours and genuine freshness are what brings our clients back time and time again. Looking for À La Carte Dishes or carefully assembled food boxes? Browse our options.

Nutritious Benefits

All of our soups are veggie-laden, with assorted flavours and seasonings to satisfy your palate. In addition to this, our diverse meal selection is nutritionally beneficial, with low fat, low sugar, a high fibre content and plentiful protein. In terms of vitamins, just one portion of Vegan Leek And Potato Soup With Nutmeg acts as a source of Vitamins C and B6, with Thiamin and Folic Acid in addition. Likewise, the Vegan Roasted Tomato And Chickpea Soup will fulfil your intake of Vitamins C and A, with Potassium and Manganese - required for regular functioning of the brain, nervous system and enzyme systems.

Fresh And Tasty

Whereas shop-bought soups or prepped meals from other providers may lay claim to fresh ingredients and a carefully curated recipe, with our rich and moreish dishes you can recognise the sustainably sourced veggies in every portion. Our enriching Vegan Butternut Squash Soup contains strong notes of coconut and lemon grass, bringing the exotic tastes of Thai cuisine to your office or front door.

Likewise, our Vegan Sweetcorn Chowder is the perfect mid-day meal for work. Delicious and able to fuel you for the day, each bowl contains celery, carrots, onions, curly kale and more, just 44Kcal per 100g.

Easy Preparation And Storage

The last thing you want to be doing in a busy office is preparing a complicated meal, with a kitchen area likely to be busy around the lunch hour (if your place of work even has one). Just as troublesome can be preparing lunch at home, with a limited timeframe and other inconveniences if you don’t live alone. Easy preparation and storage are ensured, with all our soups arriving ready for storage, easily defrosted and prepared in a matter of minutes.

Conveniently shaped boxes and containers will fit seamlessly into your freezer space and can be stacked for space-saving. You can even build your very own nutritious ready-meal boxes packed full of your favourite flavours, with plenty of choice for a different option every day of the week.

Highly Affordable

You would expect costs to soon mount if catering for a large team, or purchasing a number of meals for daily consumption, but deals and tailored offers from the team at Pow Food will make purchases surprisingly affordable. We can even offer you a custom quote for event catering or corporate gatherings, ensuring savings on mass purchases. Whereas eating at expensive establishments every lunch hour or packing and preparing a meal beforehand may cut into your free time or burn a hole in your wallet, we’re always looking for ways to make life convenient for our loyal customers.

Home Or Office

Whether in the home or office environment, soup is a great choice. As simple to prepare and eat as it is appetising, soup is mess-free and comes prepared with all the seasonings you could ever need. If you like, you could add slices of crusty wholemeal bread into the mix for dipping or, if you’re particularly peckish, the soup can act as a delicious starter for a larger Pow ready meal.

Though ideal for lunchtime food box delivery in the workplace, soup is just as desirable for a light evening snack if you don’t want to sleep on an empty stomach. Our Vegan Organic Vegetable Broth even contains both greens and grains - with plant protein for overnight muscle recovery.

Varied Options

Currently, there are 8 soup selections within our online catalogue, including vegan-friendly portions and allergy-considerate options. Ideal for those with a craving for succulent chicken flavourings, our Organic Chicken Bone Broth contains fennel, lemon and greens for an added kick, while a generous serving of Vegan Carrot And Ginger Soup provides mental stimulation for the remainder of the day, with low fat, low sugar and high fibre content. Delicious when cooked and stirred in a pan, why not challenge yourself to try every flavour?

Great For Gut Health

Gut health is an underappreciated consideration that many of us neglect. Our soup recipes are carefully thought-out with your important gut health in mind, sustaining the required balance between the good and bad bacteria in your digestive system. Poor gut health can result in a number of issues - including poor nutrient absorption, unregulated blood sugar, weight loss or weight gain. On the other hand, consistent gut health can contribute to a strong immune system, improved heart health, boosted mood and effective digestion.

Other Lunch Options For Work

Not keen on soups and broths for your food box delivery? We can provide sweet treats, snacks and filling spicy dishes for a mid-day kick. Take a look at just a selection of our popular packaged meals and nibbles:

Vegan Amazonian Cacao Three Bean Chilli

Served with black rice, English peas and sweetcorn, this rich and moreish lunch treat is irresistibly flavourful and acts as a good source of plant protein. High in fibre, low in fat and a good source of Vitamin B6 and Folate for energy production and immune functions, you won’t need to compromise taste for the sake of a healthy dish when you opt for this favourite.

Grass-Fed British Lamb Kofta With Rainbow Ratatouille

Loaded with nutritious ingredients and served with a juicy rainbow ratatouille, this desirable daily lunch option is high in protein, low in sugar and remains a good source of Vitamin B12 for energy throughout the day. Maintain productivity and treat yourself with a trusted favourite.

Vegan Super Berry Mousse

Enjoyed as a dessert or lighter snack, the light texture of our healthy mousse is unmatched, bursting with the distinctive flavours of sweet raspberry and tropical coconut cream, increasing your daily vitamin intake has never tasted so good.

Vibrant Vegetable Stir Fry
