What’s The Story of Plato’s Veli? It All Started With A Dream…
How can you combine flavor with well-being in a dish that is light and easy to eat, all at the same time?
Something for a sweet tooth, to satisfy the desire of tasty flavors and nutritional balance.
This is the challenge from which Plato’s Veli come from.
Actually, it is more a dream than a challenge, shared among a team of nutritionists, chefs and creative talents who could see in the shape of a veil of pasta, filled with amazing ingredients, the answer to this question.
The Veli are the icon of Plato Chic Superfood, since their simplicity hides a magical and exciting food experience.
Not only this: the Veli respect food intolerances, vegan and vegetarian diets and the chic food lovers’ desire to be in good shape, without giving up flavor.
Everyone wants to feel good. With Plato’s Veli well-being becomes a daily luxury, rich in…superfoods!
The dough of Plato’s Veli is special.
It is made with whole, gluten-free and flavorful flours, which can satiate you more than the refined ones. This happens because whole flours contain more fibers.
The research of nutritionists and chefs led to the creation of two kinds of dough, one for the sweet Veli, the other for the savory ones.
In the sweet dough you’ll find buckwheat flour, rich in proteins, fibers and flavonoids which lower the level of sugars in the blood, whole rice flours, soy milk and one egg.
The sweet Veli are good for breakfast, because they contain proteins and fibers, but they are also very light and tasty!
In the savory Veli, on the other hand, the dough contains buckwheat flour, whole rice flour, carob flour and carob seed flour. This dough doesn’t have proteins of animal origin, but it is protein-based anyway thanks to the presence of buckwheat. Plus, it contains the antioxidants of the carobs.
More good news? Carob flour tastes like cocoa!
Plato’s Veli Can Also Be Vegan!
Plato’s cuisine meets the nutritional needs of the people.
This means that its menu also offers lactose, gluten, yeast and nichel-free dishes, together with vegan and vegetarian options.
The vegan diet, in particular, asks for special attention to the choice of foods to integrate in your daily diet, most of all for what concerns proteins.
I can easily happen to eat too many carbs and fibers during breakfast, but not enough proteins!
No milk, egg, yogurt or cheese makes difficult to include them in your diet. The solution?
Despite the fact that the dough of the sweet Veli contains eggs, Plato offers to its vegan customers the same superfood fillings of the Velo Sorrento, Il Moro, Omaggio a Milano and Cocco Crunch, with the dough of the savory Veli.
In this way, the vegan breakfast has the same amount of proteins contained in the nuts and buckwheat, the fibers and the whole carbs of the flours and the tasty flavor of Plato’s superfood!
The Breakfast You Didn’t Expect
There is a reason behind the whole, varied, light and nutritious breakfast Plato offers to its customers.
As Plato’s nutritionists Michela Speciani and Valentina Chiozzi stated, your breakfast influences the way you feel during the whole day. Not only you shouldn’t skip it – it actually should become the main meal of your day!
Of course, it’s not easy to change your habits. This is why Plato’s breakfast offers many different options.
