If you're of a certain age, the phrase Green Giant could mean one of 2 things to you-
frozen veggie cartoon logo or a very muscled cartoon character!
I'm going to talk to you about 'the veggie guy'!
As you can see The Jolly Green Giant has gotten a modern make over!
And so have his veggies!
The new Green Giant Health Blends are each crafted to give you a unique taste experience—seasoned to delicious and ready in just minutes for your healthy, on-the-go lifestyle, and all under 100-300 calories per serving (and some of those servings are QUITE huge!)!. In fact, Green Giant has partnered with Weight Watchers and both the Lose It App and Spark People apps, to help their fans keep track of the food choices they make, and to help them make better ones. They even have a 2 week meal planner to help you on your way, that you can download from their website.
They call it the 'Eat More, That's The Difference' program!
Did you know you can have a whole serving (one box) of Broccoli and Cheesy Rice or 27 potato chips? Which do you think would be more filling? Not to mention better for you!
Holiday season is upon us and you know what that means- let the feasting on sugar laden treats and high fat comfort foods begin! So if you're like me, wanting to really watch what you eat, and maintain (or loose) your weight, without putting on the 15 lb holiday weight gain that can occur, Green Giant's new program might be just the thing for you! By tracking what you are eating every day, having lots more water (did you know most hunger pains are really signs of dehydration?) and being more active, you can keep it from happening to your waistline! And admit it- if the veggies are TASTY, you're more inclined to eat them!
And did I mention the new Green Giant veggie blends are downright yummy?
I love the new Green Giant Garden Vegetable Medley (Sugar Snap Peas, Roasted Potatoes, Red Peppers & Garden Herbs)-see?
And that was ONE serving! Added to a piece of meat, it was a super filling dinner, and perfect for heating up at work, and having a HEALTHY dinner, versus fast food!
The aforementioned Broccoli and Cheesy Rice is equally tasty (it's one of Miss Grace's favorites), and we also love the Green Beans and Almonds, Rice Pilaf and Garlic Roasted Potatoes! They cook up in your microwave for easy peasy meals on the run and are super nutritious.
So what do YOU think-
Can Green Giant change your mind about staying fit and healthy during the holiday season?
