As Malaysians, our lives are mostly centred around food. Many of us can’t seem to live without eating meat & fried foods which can cause serious health issues in the long run. If this sounds like you and you’ve been looking for guilt-free snack options that still taste yummy, we have just the answer for you!
Plant-based diets are all the rage right now and while the term ‘plant-based’ may sound scary, it isn’t as daunting as it sounds. A plant-based diet emphasizes foods such as fruits, vegetables and beans and limits your intake of meats, dairy and eggs.
With that said, we decided to go on a plant-based snack hunt to find healthier alternatives for snacking during work. Here’s what we found!
1. We made plant-based snacks for our colleagues and it was super easy!
We headed to the supermarket to see if we could find what we were looking for. Much to our surprise, we found these amazing & affordable plant-based snacks from the brand First Pride Green Series. We decided to try all three of their plant-based options: First Pride Bites, First Pride Spicy Nuggets, and the First Pride Strips!
Much to our surprise, it was super easy to make! All we had to do was place them in the air fryer at 180°C and they came out perfectly crispy! The best part is that they were done in a matter of minutes:
- First Pride Spicy Nuggets – 11 to 12 minutes
- First Pride Strips – 13 to 14 minutes
- First Pride Bites – 10 to 11 minutes
Then, we packed the snacks and had them delivered to our colleagues for them to try!
2. Nobody believed us when we said the food was plant-based!
We decided we weren’t going to tell our colleagues that they were made from soy & wheat protein. After everyone had their share of Bites, Strips and Spicy Nuggets, we revealed that those were actually plant-based snacks and nobody believed us. 😂
Needless to say, our colleagues were pleasantly surprised! The meat-like texture and the spiciness from the Spicy Nuggets definitely had everyone fooled.
Here’s what we thought of each of the variants…
First Pride Bites
This could be your family’s new favourite movie snack, it is incredibly crunchy and tasty!
First Pride Spicy Nuggets
The tender and juicy texture followed by a burst of flavours from the herbs & spices was just an amazing experience!
First Pride Strips
These Strips are perfect for a healthy wrap paired with lettuce & tomatoes, the slight peppery taste gave it a good kick too!
Who knew plant-based protein could taste so good???
After our little snack adventure, some of us decided to stock up on these First Pride Green Series plant-based snacks for our lockdown munchies! After all, they are healthy and guilt-free which is just what we need to survive this lockdown period.
