  • Falafel bowls: pack in high protein houmous and falafels with vibrant vegetables like purple cabbage, roasted carrots, tangy tomatoes and pickles. Easy to prep and totally delicious.
  • Your leftover Green Chef meals! If you are ordering for one, you'll always have an extra portion of Green Chef that you can keep for lunch the next day, plus you can add extra portions and sides to bulk out your meals for the week.
