My husband and I have recently been making a conscious effort to make healthier choices at mealtime. We are consciously reading labels and monitoring our foods for their carbohydrate, fat, and sugar content, so that we can ensure we are consuming foods that are nutritious and satisfying.
One of our favorite mealtime additions has been the integration of Green Giant Riced Veggies.
Green Giant Riced Vegetables are 100 percent vegetables, and are a gluten-free, low-carb alternative to pasta, potatoes and rice. The products contain no sauce or seasoning so we can prepare the veggies to our liking, and we love that the Riced Veggies contain 70-85 percent fewer calories than the leading brand of white rice.
Green Giant Riced Veggies are available in six delicious varieties, such as Cauliflower & Sweet Potato, Cauliflower Risotto Medley, Cauliflower & Broccoli and Cauliflower with Lemon & Garlic. We keep several varieties in the freezer at all times so that we always have the perfect side at the ready for our dinners.
We have tried purchasing riced vegetables that are not frozen, and much prefer buying frozen so that there is no rush to cook before the veggies lose their optimal freshness. With Green Giant Riced Veggies, the products consistently have tasted fresh and delicious when we are ready to prepare and enjoy them.
We love how filling the vegetables are. One bag truly allows for four hearty servings. The broccoli and cauliflower product has only 20 calories per serving, which is truly a treat for us calorie counters! We simply add a pinch of salt and after under six minutes in the microwave, they are ready to enjoy. I could not believe how easy they were to prepare! We love that we can enjoy the fresh, natural taste of vegetables that are so easy to make.
I am a vegetarian, and have loved enjoying riced veggies as a main entrée, such as when I serve the Riced Veggies Cauliflower Risotto Medley.
