Thank you to #GreenGiant for sponsoring today’s post. As always, all statements and opinions are my own.
She’s 8. Almost 9. AND it’s STILL a struggle to get this kid to have some variety in her meals. Am I the only one? I swear we went from baby food right to chicken nuggets and French fries. That’s been Summer’s go to meal for the past how many years. Today I’m partnering with Green Giant®on our weekly ShopRite run and sharing our recent kitchen discovery. Green Giant®Veggie Fries®and Veggie Rings®has made meal time less stressful and a lot more delicious in our household!
You all know I’m not the best in the kitchen, but I’ve been trying really, really hard lately to get more creative and take part in our household’s meals. One of my goals with this “new me” was to get Summer to start eating more variety. She’s great with eating fruit but terrible at eating vegetables. BUT Green Giant has done me a solid and came up with a tasty way to incorporate veggies into our lifestyle.
A GREAT ALTERNATIVE TO FRIES AND TOTS
I get it. She wants fries every single night. Heck so do I. Problem solved. Green Giant Veggie Fries and Veggie Rings are both a great alternative to tater tots and fries. Green Giant Veggie Fries have 1 full serving of vegetables and the Veggie Rings are made with real vegetables! Talk about a win win! I put them in the air fryer for 10 minutes and they came out super crispy and crunchy just as Summer likes them.
HOW TO COOK
Can we talk about that crispiness?! You can opt to put them in the oven too if you don’t have an air fryer. In addition, I love the variety of flavors they have. Honestly, I can’t even choose if I like the Veggie Fries Zucchini Garlic & Parmesan or the Veggie Fries Cauliflower Ranch With Bacon better. Both are so tasty, and I usually rotate a different one with each dinner this way we are all getting a variety of vegetables.
Seeing Summer’s excitement over Green Giant Veggie Fries and Veggie Rings makes me so happy. I mean when we can see our kids get this excited about eating something new then we know we are doing a good job. Furthermore, she can still have her beloved chicken nuggets for easy after dance meals but adding Green Giant Veggie Fries makes that simple dinner so much more delicious!
Mealtime looks a lot different in our household now. She used to run over to the freezer and grab the bag of frozen fries. Now she runs over and grabs a bag of Green Giant. The only argument I have with her is over which flavor goes in the air fryer tonight!
WHERE TO BUY
And this is the kind of reaction I now get at dinner time. Go me! And go Summer. Proud of you kid for getting to add some variety into your meals. Bonus that it includes 1 full serving of veggies! Green Giant Veggie Fries and Veggie Rings are available in the frozen food aisle of your local store! Next time you do your weekly grocery shopping make sure to hit up the frozen food aisle and grab a bag or 2 or 3. Trust me. The entire family will go crazy for them.
