Single-Serve Plant-Based Meals

Purple Carrot's Nourishing Meals Offer a Taste of Plant-Based Food

— July 8, 2020 — Lifestyle
Purple Carrot is known for its plant-based meal kit subscriptions and now consumers can find single-serve frozen meals from the brand in stores. According to a press release from Purple Carrot, these new meals feature "the same flavor profiles and nutritional philosophies that are core to its meal kit offering."

Knowing that many consumers are craving an easy way to add more plant-based foods to their diet but may not necessarily be willing to make the switch to plant-based eating full-time, Purple Carrot created single-serve meals to offer a quick and easy taste of better-for-you plant-based meals. For flexitarians, there are tempting varieties like the Maple Chipotle Veggie Bowl and the Sweet Corn Elote Bowl, plus a Fiesta Pepper Bowl and Plant-Based Meatball Marinara, both made with meatless alternatives from Gardein.
