At House of Coco, we are all slaves to grabbing a quick lunch and eating at our desks, where the meal-deal favourites soon become a little mundane and boring. Inspired by the Californian trend for ‘shake and go’ salads, BOL Foods have launched a new range of fresh and vibrant salad jars marking the end of drab ‘al desko’ lunch as we know it.
Inspired by the Sunshine State’s healthy living lifestyle, BOL Foods’ salad jars combine exotic flavours and vivid colours for wholesome goodness. Healthy grains are layered with green leaves and good fats, resulting in a meal that is packed with natural ingredients.
There are four tasty jars to choose from and we were lucky enough to try each one. Not only are these jars highly nutritious, they are also extremely tasty and perfect for busy people on-the-go.
If you like a hint of spice, The Persian is a Middle Eastern sensation: spiced cauliflower, beluga lentils, spinach with a pomegranate and sumac dressing.
Release the Greek God in you with The Mediterranean: a medley of roasted butternut squash, feta, and chickpeas with a lemon and sun-dried tomato dressing.
A colourful rainbow of layers including chargrilled broccoli, raw slaw, black rice, black beans and a white miso, soy and ginger dressing. The Japanese pickles and crunchy slaw make this bowl an absolute pleasure to chow down at lunch time.
For the beach body kale queens, this one’s for you. Kale, chargrilled broccoli and tomatoes are stacked on red and white quinoa with a light white miso and soy dressing. This one was full of texture and was pipped to the post as a House of Coco favourite!
Developed in collaboration with top TV chef Alex Mackay and renowned nutritionist Ian Marber (The Food Doctor), each salad jar is vegetarian and under 400 calories – an easy and healthy lunch option to enjoy during the working day.
The packaging too matches the vibrant food content; each jar comes in a brightly coloured box and include both a fork and dressing on the side. So, once you have decided your flavour of choice, simply dress, shake, and enjoy!
As well as keeping their consumers happy, BOL Foods are keen believers in looking after the planet too. They donated 100% of their year one profits to the global hunger crisis and have designed the Salad Jars to be re-usable. The stylish and sturdy jars come with screw top lids – no chance of any handbag leakage here – and can be used for anything from transporting your own home-made salads to being a thrifty pen pot!
BOL Salad Jars are available to buy on Ocado, Amazon Fresh and Planet Organic
