I recently was invited to try Green Giant Boxed Vegetables, which are now endorsed by Weight Watchers(R) as part of their "PointsPlus" program. I agreed and was sent this lovely package:
An insulated bag, a cute mixing bowl, a silicone spoon, a pedometer and, of course, the Green Giant frozen veggies. Quite the treat.
Now, before I get too much further along in this review, I have to say that when I agreed to do this review and host the giveaway I didn't realize that I'd be trying veggies in cheese sauce. I just thought they would be plain frozen vegetables, much like what I frequently serve and eat. My husband pointed out that processed food really isn't my cup of tea and he's right. I try to avoid the stuff as much as possible. And yet, here I was trying broccoli with cheese sauce.
Well, that's life. I served the veggies with dinner one evening. Aside from the processed nature of the cheese sauce, my biggest problem with the veggies was the plastic pouch that you cook them in. It was easy enough to cook the veggies -- just make a slit in the plastic pouch and then stick it in the microwave -- but serving them was tough. The whole situation was a little too messy for me. Maybe I'm just spastic, who knows?
At any rate, I did finally serve the veggies and, yes, we did enjoy them. I think I would prefer the sauce-free varieties more next time.
And, now, I have a giveaway!
One lucky reader will win the package pictured above (but with a coupon for the boxed veggies): An insulated bag, mixing bowl, silicone spoon, pedometer and one coupon for a free box of Green Giant frozen veggies.
Leave me a comment telling me you'd like to win.
