Green Giant Review & Giveaway


Eating vegetables has never been a problem in my house.  My family loves their veggies. When I was offered the chance to review the Green Giant frozen Broccoli and Cheese Sauce, I knew my family would be happy to give it a shot. 

Cooking the Green Giant frozen Broccoli and Cheese Sauce was so very easy.  I just threw it in the microwave while I prepared the rest of my dinner.  The broccoli was tasty, and not mushy.  The sauce was yummy and the fact that it was only 60 calories per serving was a big plus too.  My mom does Weight Watchers and was very pleased to learn that it was only 2 points! 

The Green Giant boxed veggies can help you stay on track to achieve your weight management goals. They have twenty-nine delicious varieties that are now endorsed by Weight Watchers, and most have only a 1 or 2 PointsPlus value per serving!  My mom and I have done Weight Watchers off and on for several years now, and that is a huge plus for us. 

You can visit Green Giant on Facebook and on Twitter and "Like" or "Follow" the brand to keep up with their latest and greatest products! For more information on Green Giant and for some tasty recipe ideas feel free to visit http://greengiant.com/.



Our Verdict:  The veggies were tasty, easy to prepare, and fit in perfectly in my diet.  This product has been added to my normal grocery list and has become a new staple in my household!

A huge thank you to My Blog Spark and Green Giant for the wonderful items I received for my review!  The prize pack included one frozen sample of Green Giant Boxed Vegetables, an insulated tote bag, serving bowl, spoon and pedometer.
