FUEL Foodie: Green Giant Health Blends
Eat MORE vegetables! Finally, you are encouraged to eat more of something. Vegetables are packed with nutrition that fights disease and ageing. But eating more isn’t easy for everyone and vegetables are often skipped or pushed to the side. Why? Many eat a limited variety (fear of branching out), not all selections can be eaten raw (which limits selection) and vegetables taste best when prepared (which takes time). Regardless your excuses, you still need more vegetables daily.
As a registered dietitian, I am not generally a fan of frozen dishes with sauces due to the high sodium but Green Giant’s Health Blends caught my attention. Found in the frozen section, Green Giant now offers microwavable vegetables in 7oz portions perfect for a lunch box or dinner for one. Each variety contains premium vegetables, uniquely blended and lightly tossed with a great tasting sauce.
No more excuses, eat your vegetables!
