The New Chop’d Nutritional Calculator

Here at Chop’d, we take pride in our ability to source produce that is grown sustainably packed full of nutrients and flavour, and whilst we do not encourage diet culture, we always encourage our customers to live a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.  

Post-pandemic life has heightened many society’s awareness of the importance of eating healthy to keep your immune system strong. We believe that eating a varied diet full of goodness is key to maintaining good health, both mentally and physically.  

Eat well recommends 5 servings of fruits and veg a day to provide you with an array of vitamins and protein to ensure you are ready to tackle any challenges that life throws at you. Also stating carbohydrates are a vital energy source, in particular wholegrains/wholemeal foods such as our brown rice or wholemeal pasta, as they are densely packed with vitamins and minerals and have a high fibre content, aiding digestion. 

And that is why, after popular demand we have brought back our nutritional calculator, so, you can know exactly what nutrients you are getting when you create your own salads. It works in 5 simple steps, select your base, house items, deli-items, garnish, and dressing. The calculator will then determine the nutritional content of your salad, including calories, fat, salt, carbs, sugars, and proteins.  

When using the nutritional calculator, do not let yourself be put off if the value of fat is higher than expected. Lots of our veg, including our avocados and seeds are high in unsaturated fats. These are an essential part of our diet which can lower cholesterol level and can help reducing risk of heart disease and are hugely different to the fats found in a burger and chips. 

Whatever you decide to put into your custom-made salad with we can assure you it will be packed full of goodness to put the spring in your step.
