The Mediterranean | 20g protein
Bone broth: We call it liquid gold because it's packed with collagen protein made of amino acids complimentary to those found in whole grains, legumes and other plants. It's hydrating, supports immune function and some even consider it an anti-aging elixir, we'll let you decide.
Beluga lentils: earned their name because of their caviar-like appearance. This mighty lentil has the highest protein content in the lentil family and lots of free-radical fighting anthocyanins.
Chickpeas: a rich source of plant protein, B6, magnesium and manganese.
Arugula: considered a cruciferous vegetable (like its cousin, kale) and rich in vitamin A and K along with minerals such as iron and calcium.
Quinoa: a super grain loaded with 6g of protein per 1/4 cup and packed with two different types of flavonoids (think anti-inflammatory).
Tomato: a great source of vitamin C (a pre-cursor to collagen production) and beta-carotene which can act as an antioxidant or get converted to Vitamin A.

Love having these on hand for super busy days for lunch or last minute dinners. They don’t look like a huge portion but they are super filling. My only negative is I thought it needed extra salt.
I brought the Mediterranean on Metro-North to NYC for lunch since it was going to be a busy day of work meetings and I wanted something quick/healthy to eat. Not only was it delicious but everything held up great during the commute (packaging was perfect and it stayed frozen!). I had many coworkers approach me on what I was having because it looked so good! Will definitely be ordering again!
Absolutely love the taste and feel great after the meal. Healthy and filling!
The best thing about The Mediterranean is the taste!!! It’s delicious and filling without the guilt!
