It’s Saturday and we’ve got what you’re looking for 😍

Quick lesson on plant based protein, which this bowl is packed with 20 grams of!!

🍒 plant based protein provides the building blocks for healthy muscles and tissues
.
🍒 plant based proteins tend to be lower in calories and fat and higher in fiber and essential nutrients as opposed to animal protein
.
🍒You should consume as much protein in the form of whole, real foods as possible. However, it is very common to not consume as much protein as we need in our daily diet. That’s where protein powders come in to help us supplement our diet in the areas we are lacking. If you’d like more info, send us a message!!

🍒 Cacao Cherry Crunch Bowl
BASE: strawberry, raspberry, Vegan cherry pie protein powder, almond mylk
TOPPINGS: V GF chocolate granola, strawberries, cacao nibs, dried cherries, vegan chocolate hazelnut drizzle

Let’s talk avocado, shall we? 🥑
.
🥑the nutrient value of an avocado is incredible. Some of the most prominent being Vitamin K, Folate, Vitamin C, Potassium, Vitamin B5, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin E.
.
🥑this is an extremely low carb fruit (mostly fiber) that is jam packed with healthy fats (in fact, 77% of the calories are from fat, which makes it one of the fattiest plant foods ever)
.
🥑they are loaded with potassium and fiber, both of which are extremely important for our bodily functions
.
🥑consuming these healthy fats are vital for heart health by reducing cholesterol levels, reducing blood triglycerides, lowering LDL cholesterol (bad), and increasing HDL cholesterol (good)
.
🥑and lastly, and most important, they taste damn good!!!
.
🥑Who’s our avocado lovers out there?!

Let’s talk about MATCHA.
We love our Culinary Grade Summer Harvest Matcha from our neighbors @shortandstout.tea

🌱Matcha is the powdered version of green tea leaves. We talked a little about this on our story but matcha contains nutrients from the entire camellia sinensis leaf which means it contains MORE caffeine and antioxidants than a traditional green tea.

🌱It has 35mg of caffeine per half teaspoon. HOWEVER, it also contains L-Theanine. This is a natural calming agent that works alongside the caffeine to provide a longer lasting, focused and happy energy.

🌱What does this mean for you? If you’re not a coffee drinker, maybe it makes you anxious or jittery, matcha is a great substitute to try out to provide you with a natural energy source to fuel your day.

🌱Along with those awesome benefits, it also can boost your metabolism, provide an amazing source of antioxidants(which can prevent heart disease and control blood sugar and cholesterol levels)

🌱come try it out!! 📷: Shaken Matcha Lemonade

Let’s talk kale vs. spinach 🥬
What’s your preference?
Are you team Spinach like Popeye?
Or are you part of the new Kale Kraze?

🥬Kale has slightly more calcium and vitamin C
🥬but Spinach is higher in iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, folate, vitamin A, vitamin E and vitamin K

So, in the question “which is better for you” , it really comes down to your personal health goals and needs.

HOWEVER, both are anti inflammatory which is linked to protecting against cancer and heart disease. They both carry the same amount of fiber per serving which is great for digestive health and they also carry about the same amount of protein.

So if you’re having our Buddha Bowl or our new Summer Harvest Salad, you’re doing good for your body!!!

Our Daily Ritual

Ritual 518 began as a dream. Co Owner Gina Tralongo, Plant Based Nutritionist by Cornell University, and owner of Freestyle Fitness, has been working with food and nutrition her entire life. Always having a passion for the enhancement and enrichment of the lives of others, fitness and food are a must for her. She lives, sleeps and breathes for her clients and the community. Co owner Sam Kubik, recent Saint Rose graduate and personal trainer, was fascinated by the dedication and ability to change people’s lives through their physical and mental habits. Seeing the effects that a thriving fitness community led by a strong, incredible woman can have on the community, she was intent to get involved and start changing lives.

Together, the two make the perfect team. Blending their skills together, Ritual 518 was born. The two are determined to provide whole, nutritious, balanced foods to supplement our everyday habits and diets. One of the biggest values that Ritual 518 holds true is transparency. You deserve to know exactly what’s in your food, which is a complicated endeavor while on the go and eating out. Ritual 518 is meant to be a safe space that you can feel good about visiting when being at home isn’t an option. We are building a community around natural, simple ingredients that make amazing food in an amazing space. We support every person, every body and every mind that we come by. Eating a well balanced, fueling diet is never easy and you will never be perfect. BUT, we’re here to do some of that hard work for you. Come eat with us, sit with us, and enjoy our community. We can’t wait to have you!
