Revolution Foods, Oakland, Calif., is helping busy families prepare better-for-you meals at home in minutes with Dinner Hero and Breakfast Hero, both speed-scratch meal solutions.
“As busy working moms ourselves, we understand the challenges that busy parents face every day, especially when it comes to meal preparation. We are solving parents’ desire to prepare a home-cooked meal within 30 minutes with our culinary-inspired speed-scratch solutions,” says Kirsten Saenz Tobey, chief impact officer and co-founder. “Our new Dinner Hero and Breakfast Hero lines are a healthy alternative to current offerings that require consumers to trade off quality or nutrition for convenience. We simplify meal preparation and enable faster cooking to make parents heroes, and help them prepare a home-cooked meal, even when they are short on time.”
Dinner Hero is a healthy meal kit that includes whole grains, custom spice blends and sauces with easy-to-follow recipes – just add protein for a complete meal in 30 minutes. The unique, cookbook-style packaging enhances the experience of cooking for busy parents. Dinner Hero delivers 42-49 grams of whole grains per serving (brown rice and quinoa blend or brown rice and bamboo rice) with no artificial colors or flavors. The chef-created varieties include Coconut Curry, Sesame Garlic, Smoky Tomato Sausage and Fiesta Taco.
Breakfast Hero is a “no mix, no mess” thaw-and-pour pancake batter that requires no added water or mixing, and is said to be the only pancake product with whole milk as the first ingredient and made with real eggs. Options include Original, Multigrain and Chocolate Multigrain, featuring 6 grams of protein per serving, and Multigrain and Chocolate Multigrain offering 12-14 grams of whole grains. The easy pour and re-closeable spout leaves no messy clean up, and once thawed, it lasts for 10 days, making 15 pancakes.
