Casa Verde’s Line of Plant-Based, Latin Meals (All Photos By Gail)
If you are like me, you love to eat, but would rather leave the cooking to others. Since I can’t dine out every day, my freezer is stuffed with Trader Joe’s favorites and my pantry holds staples like canned goods, pasta and rice, so I don’t go hungry, but sometimes I feel like I could be eating healthier. I confess though that I am lazy in the kitchen and not the most imaginative cook, so I also need meal prep to be easy. Fortunately, if you can bring yourself to dice a few fresh vegetables and cook a pot of rice, you can eat like a true Foodie at home with Casa Verde’s new line of heat-and-eat, plant-based meal kits that are perfectly portioned for a party of one.
