We believe in a well-rounded approach to nutrition. We believe in the power of plants and in eating a rainbow of foods packed with nutrients, phytochemicals and antioxidants.

The Thistle Standard of Nutrition

While we don’t believe in undue focus on specific metrics and understand that the quality of the food you eat is more important than specifically defined calorie quantities or macronutrient ratios, we also strive to ensure nutritional consistency. Our meals conform to the following per meal guidelines:

Lunches & Dinners

An average of 400-550 calories. 90-100% plant ingredients by weight, depending on your protein plan. 20g+ of plant protein from legumes, nuts & seeds, adashah, tempeh, tofu, and whole, ancient grains

Breakfast

250-400 calories on average. 100% plant ingredients by weight. 10g+ of plant protein. ~10g of fiber. 0.5-1 oz nutrient-dense booster foods.

Meat plans contain additional protein from a 3 oz serving of chicken, turkey, pork, or shrimp per meal.

~15g of digestion-promoting fiber. 2-4 cups of leafy greens and other vegetables.

0.5-1 oz nutrient-dense booster foods such as spirulina, dandelion root, turmeric, chia, ashwagandha, or reishi.
