From: EatingWell.com, September 2019

We're pairing two Trader Joe's fan-favorite products—the Middle-Eastern Balela salad with beans and spices and 10 Minute Farro—to add protein, fiber and satisfying texture to these high-protein lunch bowls. To cut down on prep time, we're also using preseasoned grilled chicken breasts from the refrigerated section, bottled balsamic vinaigrette and a few other ready-to-use ingredients you can find at Trader Joe's to make these quick and easy meal-prep lunches.
