CLOSED!!!Radical Review Wednesday: Green Giant Boxed Vegetables (plus Giveaway!)

You might recall that J is currently on Weight Watchers, and I was until I got pregnant (I will be back on program once the baby is born!). And as you can probably guess... vegetables are an important part of the program. And also... it is handy when the PointsPlus value is right on the package. That is why I love the Green Giant vegetables. Most only have a PointsPlus value of 1 or 2 points! Packed with flavor and ready in minutes, Green Giant Boxed Vegetables are available in a wide variety of flavors, many featuring mouthwatering sauces and seasonings. They’re a terrific addition to any meal and a delicious way to achieve better health in 2011.



I was sent a  Green Giant prize pack, which included a box of Green Giant frozen boxed broccoli and cheese sauce. I loved how easy it was to prepare - put it on a plate, cut a slit in it, and microwave it.No need to mess with pans and water.



The portion size is for approximately 2.5 servings, which seems like a weird size to me. We divided it up into 2 good sized servings. I was mostly impressed with how much cheese sauce there was!! The broccoli was firm but not too hard. And it tasted really good!

I know... unhealthy next to healthy... but it was a scrounge for food after vacation dinner!

Want to win the same prize package I did? It's easy! Package contains all you see below: an insulated tote bag, serving bowl, spoon, and pedometer, along with a VIP coupon for a Green Giant Boxed Vegetable.
