20 Healthy Mediterranean Meals

From Grilled Vegetable Lasagnas to Meatless Pasta Pairings

— June 19, 2015 — Lifestyle
These healthy Mediterranean meals range from green pesto noodles to grilled lasagnas that adhere to vegetarian diet restrictions. As consumers continue to embrace healthy living practices, the rising popularity of gluten-free and vegan diets is leading many businesses to replace carb and protein-loaded meals with wheatless or animal-free alternatives.

Standouts include pre-made frozen pastas from healthy food brand Evol who appeals to a vegetarian consumer with its Truffle Parmesan Mac and Cheese dish. The meal is not only delicious but is also ultra convenient and microwave-made.

Other favorites range from wheatless noodles recipes that are adapted by health-focused bloggers. Whether replacing wheat noodles with zucchini or lasagna layers with broccoli, these recipes adhere to strict diet rules and are made with half the calories of traditional dishes. In addition to these examples, food retailers and online retailers are remixing cultural recipes and are creating meals that blend Asian, Italian and Mexican influences.
