Eating healthy and living that busy lifestyle don’t exactly go hand in hand. It can get challenging, especially if you are vegetarian or have any food allergies/restrictions. I always try to eat fresh food whenever possible, but when I heard about this new line of vegetarian, gluten free and non-GMO project verified frozen falafel bites, I had to give them a try.
These protein and fiber packed lil bites come with tzatziki sauce and are available in four different flavors: Kale, Garlic Pesto, Southwestern and Sweet Potato. They are packaged in a resealable pouch for added convenience and freshness.
The bites are super convenient since they are pre-cooked so all you have to do is thaw them out and they’re good to go! Additionally, you always have the option to cook them in the oven, microwave or fryer.
I decided to try the Kale flavor first. I cooked them in a toaster oven for about 12 minutes. In the meantime, I whipped up a little arugula salad with feta cheese and used the included tzatziki sauce as a base for my dressing (adding in some oil, lemon juice and a little salt and pepper). I served it with some beet hummus (from Trader Joes) and some fresh pita bread. The results? Insanely yum and I can’t wait to try the rest of the flavors!
Nates Mediterranean Bites hit retail stores in June and are currently sold at Sprouts grocery stores nationwide.
