Let’s be real: Even the most health-minded #girlbosses don’t always have time to meal-prep delicious and nutritious desk lunches every single week. But instead of grabbing takeout at a restaurant nearby your office, why not just create a stockpile of healthy frozen options to have on hand? After all, Trader Joe’s did just release a protein-packed riced cauliflower bowl that’s basically begging for a ride in your reusable grocery tote.

According to a release, the newest item to grace the frozen section at the cult-beloved grocery chain is basically as clean as it gets. The totally vegan mix—which only takes a handful of minutes to prepare in the microwave—is made up of a bed of cauliflower rice, chopped sweet potatoes, red onions, tofu, and chickpeas. And it has rich flavor, too, with the perfect amount of chili powder, tahini, garlic powder, oregano, tamari soy sauce, and cumin—plus a little heat from some sambal oelek red chili paste.

While many frozen meals aren’t exactly the best for your body due to the sugar and sodium overload, this one is just 120 calories per serving (with each packaged bowl containing two-and-a-half servings) and has no added sugar, 5 grams of protein, and only 160mg of sodium. And if you don’t want to change things up, you can get creative and add the mix into a wrap. So not only will you save some money (they’re only $3 a pop!), but you’ll also be counting down the mouthwatering minutes until your lunch break.

Here are even more healthy lunches under $3 to fuel your workweek. Or find out why it’s becoming way easier to get in a workout over your lunch break.
