elevEat it up.
Aronia berries. Cacao nibs. Red adzuki beans. Goji berries. Beluga lentils.
When elevAte says We've raised the salad bar," it's not kidding.
Pre-packaged refrigerated salads are everywhere these days. Many, though, turn out to be boring variations on the iceberg or romaine/salty ham or chicken/ cheese/salty dressing theme.
From the blu*rugula (arugula and baby greens, sorghum, aronia berries, almonds, chia seeds, and cacao nibs, with a blueberry vinaigrette) to the go*go*goji (chopped kale, carrots, red cabbage, and radicchio, adzuki beans, goji berries, cashews, broccoli and cauliflower, and black sesame seeds, with a green tea dressing), the company's eight single-serve salads impress.
Taste? Check. Vitamins and minerals? Check. Protein? It ranges from 6 grams in the organic power grains to a decent 14 grams in the kale caesar.
Bonus: The salads were delish with just half the dressing. So you can end up with even fewer calories than the 240 to 320--and less sodium than the 125 to 560 milligrams--that are listed on the labels.
Consider the salad bar raised.
