5 Healthy Dishes for Lunch to Get You Through the Day

This year, yummy gets healthy as Conti’s releases new product offerings that will delight the tummy as well as the body. With the ever-increasing health awareness among customers and the Lenten season upon us, the popular food chain has introduced its latest additions to its menu, the Healthy Bowls.

With the new Healthy Grain Bowls and Gourmet Greens, Conti’s gives more deliciously healthy options not just for the faithful flock but for anyone with a taste for something fresh and hearty.

Conti’s Healthy Grain Bowls are similar to rice toppings, but instead of white rice, these seafood meals are paired with locally-sourced grains called Adlai – nutrient-packed, energy-boosting, protein-rich, and low in glucose. They’re also gluten-free.
