Who doesn’t love food fresh from the farm, prepared in a healthy way in less than no time? I know I do! With a family to cater to, a choir, an NGO and a church to run, spending too much time in the kitchen is a no-no for me.
I’ll be the first to admit that I love cooking my own food from scratch. I use our heritage foods like plantain to create delicious breakfast recipes like the dodoyi, this plantain frittata or my signature plantain muffin cups. But, sometimes I just don’t have the time!
That’s why I was so excited to discover Sympli Natural Nigeria.
If you haven’t heard about the Sympli Natural Nigeria foods yet, I hope you’ll be as excited as I was. The Sympli foods are harvested at their peak when they are bursting with flavor and nutrition, then conveniently peeled, chopped and freshly frozen to lock in freshness and quality. Win!
There are currently 4 different Sympli products being sold in Austria, England, Germany, and Nigeria at the moment. These include:
- Ripe Plantain Slices
- Unripe Plantain Chips
- Yam Cubes
- Yam Fries
These products come in 500g packages and sell for 2.35€ a pack. They are already washed, peeled and chopped so all you have to do is enjoy. How amazing is that? Plus, no more wastage in peels and no more fear of purchasing spoiled plantain or yam. Double win!
Yes, to plantains and yams that have been peeled and are ready to cook from frozen and you won’t even tell the difference between the fresh and the frozen when cooked, fried or pounded. These products are life-saving guys.
When fresh plantains or yams are not in season, I love that I can still enjoy my favorite foods like pounded yam, amala, or just good old plantain chips with the range Sympli Natural Nigeria offers without preservatives or anything artificial while enjoying the numerous nutrients plantains and yams provide our bodies. These products are definitely a keeper in my opinion.
The benefits of Sympli Natural Nigeria foods
As a result of their complex carbohydrates and relatively high fiber content, the Sympli yam and plantain products are a great addition to a healthy wholesome diet providing the body with 32g of carbs and 2,3g of fiber per 100g and 24g of carbs and 4,1g of fiber per 100g of plantain and yams respectively. They are also a great source of energy, especially for the active African.
They come in four varieties – unripe plantain, ripe plantain, yam fries and yam cubes. The taste is just like what you’d expect from fresh plantains and yam. The ripe plantain slices are my favorite, for obvious reason. 🙂
Personally, I’d eat the ripe plantain slices and couldn’t care less! Fried from frozen, they taste divine. Don’t take my word for it, just try it!
I’m not going to lie – I love my food fresh from the farm to the table but these Sympli products are just as good without the extra work; peeling and chopping. Hey, why not have it the Sympli way, fresh, no prepping necessary, easy-to-cook and packed healthy goodness to nourish your body?
