Lighten Up Your Meals With The Blend™

There’s something about the heat of summer that makes us crave lighter meals filled with fresh fruits and veggies. This summer, combine your cravings for lighter fare and your love of hearty meals with The Blend™.

The Blend = chopped mushrooms + ground meat, which makes meals more nutritious and delicious.

How is this so? Let’s break it down. We’ll start with our most classic example: burgers. Blended burgers are typically 75% ground meat and 25% mushrooms. So, if 25% of your burger patty is fat free, cholesterol free, low sodium and low cal thanks to mushrooms, you now have a lighter burger with the added nutrition of mushrooms, perfect for summertime grilling.

It’s not just burgers, though! The Blend works with all your favorite ground meat recipes, including tacos, Sloppy Joes, meatballs, spaghetti and more. The greater the mushroom ratio, the lighter it gets. Try it yourself with the Blenditarian® favorites below.
