Side Delights® Launches Easy Options for Top Five U.S. Diets
SAN FRANCISCO, CA - Side Delights® is delighted to report the top diets according to U.S. News and World Report, and is encouraging consumers to utilize potatoes as a top ingredient to stay healthy.
Data from the 2018 Best Diets list shows these diets focus on fresh and healthy options, and this comes as no surprise to Fresh Solutions Network’s Side Delights.
“It is no secret that vegetables are good for you, and should be included in almost any healthy, balanced diet," said Kathleen Triou, President and CEO of Fresh Solutions Network. “As America's favorite vegetable, potatoes are the perfect whole food that can be prepared in a variety of ways as an integral part of almost any vegetable-based diet or nutrition plan.”
The Mediterranean Diet, which made it to the top two, focuses on the healthy eating practices throughout the region and suggests foods like olive oil, fish, and vegetables like potatoes. This diet has research supporting its ability to prevent chronic diseases and increase longevity. The DASH Diet claimed the number one slot on the report for the 8th consecutive ranking, according to a press release. This diet was started by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI) to reduce blood pressure, and it focuses on fruit, vegetables, whole grain, and lean protein.
The third ranked diet was the Flexitarian Diet, which focuses on plant-heavy meal options and some meat, while Weight Watchers landed at forth, a diet option that includes a variety of potato in recipes on the website. The fifth spot was a three-way tie between MIND Diet, TLC Diet, and Volumetrics, which all suggest vegetables, including potatoes, within the mealtime regimen.
On top of these top ranked diets, potatoes are a popular option for vegan diets, clean eating diets, raw food diets, the Alkaline Diet, and the Whole 30 diet.
With so much popularity in the diets, potatoes have proven to be a go-to source for dietary needs. For more information on Side Delights' fresh and healthy offerings, such as its bagged and bulk gourmet and organic items, check out the website at www.SideDelights.com.
