Each entrée can be made in less than 5 minutes, are under 450 calories each, and have up to 24 grams of protein– perfectly portioned for individual eating. The meals are also low in saturated fat, low in sugar, contain 0 grams of trans fat and have less than 350 milligrams of sodium per 100 grams (<14% DRV). Many are also high in fiber, so consumers can feel good about digging into guilty pleasures.
“Single serve meals have had a bad rap but we’re reinventing their potential with our ‘Good Made Easy’ entrées” said Samuel Dennigan, CEO and founder of Strong Roots. “Consumers demand convenience to fit with their drastically changing lifestyles but still want foods that are healthy and balanced. So we’ve done all the hard work for them. This is for the consumer who wants to eat cleaner at the end of a long day but doesn't want to dice and sauté for 30 minutes – they want to hang about on the couch and watch their favorite show. Now, they don’t even have to worry about a pot or a pan, all they need is a few minutes and a microwave.”
Frozen meals have seen a major renovation in recent years, evolving past simple frozen veggies and preservative packed TV dinners of the 20th century. Strong Roots’ Good Made Easy entrées enhance convenient meals with whole plant, clean label ingredients. Like Strong Roots’ existing lines of plant-based bites and sides, these entrées are made with premium, vegetable-forward ingredients that are widely satisfying.
“We’re solving for the salt-packed, nutrient lacking, ultra-processed frozen entrées currently plaguing the freezer aisle,” said Dennigan. “There's a huge gap in the market for nutrient focused frozen meals. We’ve used the best quality ingredients, and with profiles like our Thai Green Veg Curry and Greek Orzo Pasta Bake, these meals are comforting while still being better for you. We’re excited about the diversity in flavors– a range of options that will satisfy anyone looking for hearty, veg-forward, convenient meals made from plants.”
Strong Roots’ Good Made Easyentrées will be available online and in Whole Foods starting in January, with more retailers to follow in the first quarter of 2023.
