Weight for it. The past year has been quite challenging from a health and wellness perspective. We have been focused on eating cleaner and being more active. We started the year with L-Nutra’s ProLon Fast Mimicking Diet. A fast is a great way to kickstart healthy habits, but what about after the fast? That’s where meal delivery plans can help. After our 5-day ProLon fast, we tried L-Nutra’s Nutrition for Longevity program. There is no mess, no meal prep. We are excited to share Nutrition for Longevity with you.

Breakfast and lunch are ready to eat, and dinner is ready in less than 30 minutes. Meal plans are available for 3, 4 or 5 days and delivered on Wednesdays or Fridays. The meals are packed with the over 25 grams of fiber and 10 servings of fruits and vegetables. The meals are available in 1,600 or 2,000 calories per day. We selected the 1,600 calorie pescatarian plan. The fish is wild, caught but we surprisingly liked the plant-forward, vegetarian meals better. The meals are also gluten and dairy-free.
Nutrition for Longevity: Day 1
Our first meal was Loma Linda Banana Bread with chocolate hummus. We recommend heating up the bread and then topping it with the chocolate hummus.
Lunch was a Sardinian White Bean Frisee Salad. The beans were quite filling. We try to consume a salad once a day, either for lunch or dinner. Dinner was Okinawa Teriyaki Glazed Vegetables with Salmon. We aren’t the biggest fans of salmon, but this was quite tasty.
Nutrition for Longevity: Day 2
Day 2 kicked off with a Nicoyan Enchilada. This savory dish was our favorite breakfast. We did add a little hot sauce to spice up the dish.
We ate a delicious Blue Rice Buddha Bowl for lunch. We never had blue rice before. The rice is made with butterfly pea protein, which and powerful antioxidants that have been linked to longevity.
We ate Sardinian Aqua Pazza with Cod for dinner. The penne pasta and sauce was flavorful and we added some crushed red pepper for an extra kick.
Nutrition for Longevity: Day 3
Our last breakfast was a Nicoyan Rice Pudding with Pineapple. This sweet rice dish was quite filling.
Winter Squash and Black Bean Salad was our favorite salad. Butternut squash and black beans pair nicely together. This salad was also very filling.
The Nicoyan Yellow Rice Paella with Shrimp was our favorite meal. It was flavorful and the shrimp was delicious.
Nutrition for Longevity: Snacks
The Pecan Pie Energy Bites are filling snacks that keep you full in between meals. These bites are healthy, nutrient-packed and taste like dessert.
How Much Does Nutrition for Longevity Cost?
Nutrition for Longevity costs $108 to $180 per week, ranging from 1,600 to 2,000 calories a day. It’s great for people that want to save time on meal prep, while incorporating farm to table fruits and vegetables and wild caught fish into their diet.
This year, give Nutrition for Longevity a try. The recipes are created by chefs and dietitians to provide a balance of flavor and nutrition. We definitely added some heat (hot sauce and crushed red pepper flakes) to many of the savory dishes. The meals include a lot more rice and beans than we expected. It might not be the ideal program if you are following Atkins, paleo, keto or Whole30 diet, you may need to switch up Let’s all say goodbye to quarantine pounds and hello to a healthy new you in 2021. We are definitely focused on health and wellness and will continue to share more tips with you.
Nutrition is clearly the most important factor you can take control of to affect how long you live, whether you will be diagnosed with certain major diseases, and whether you will be active and strong or sedentary and frail in old age.Valter Longo
