Tell me more Mendocino Farms

So, after a 2nd follow-up, I finally got a response from the Mendocino Farms Team about their nutrition info. Maybe they were too busy concocting delicious teas and dreaming up succulent salads to get back to me the first time!? Nonetheless, I’ll forgive them, because believe it or not, quick, healthy, vegetarian options aren’t as easy to come by as one Los Angeleno might think.

See below for info fresh from the farm.

Hi FitnessWhore,

Sorry I didn’t get back to you about this. It’s totally my fault. We haven’t calculated the nutritional information, and we probably won’t carry that info until we grow to a few more locations. But I can definitely share the ingredients with you! We’re using Morningstar Farms Veggie Bacon and they have a nutrition label available on their site. http://www.morningstarfarms.com/products_veggie-bacon-strips.aspx

We use Vegenaise – here is a link to their nutrition label http://www.followyourheart.com/products.php?id=3

Unfortunately I don’t have any information on the pepperjack (4 slices per sandwich), tomato, greens, red onions, or sourdough wheat bread. It might not be the lowest calorie sandwich on our menu – but we’ve kept it on as a vegetarian alternative to a BLT. Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Best, Isabelle
