Garden Lite's Superfood Veggie Cakes Will Make You Say Yum!

Like most adults, I don't eat veggies as much as I should.  Scarlett devours vegetables like candy on a daily basis and I wish I had her enthusiasm for them.  It's not that I dislike them, it's just I don't eat them as much as I should weekly.   Some of my favorite vegetables are raw peppers, cucumbers, broccoli and peas.  Broccoli is fabulous when it's roasted which is my ideal method of cooking it.  I think everyone needs a push to eat greens when given the opportunity.

Garden Lites's mission is to transform freshly picked veggies into surprisingly delicious foods. The brand line up includes souffles, baked, muffins and appetizers. You'll be pleased to know that veggies are always the first ingredient of each product.  Each and every Garden Lites product is gluten free, dairy free, nut free, non-GMO and Good House Keeping Nutritionist approved!

If you're interested in incorporating more vegetables in your diet, the Superfood Veggie Cakes would be a wonderful choice.  Normally in my book vegetables and cake don't go hand in hand, but trust me it's not what it sounds like.  These small round yummies are 100 calories each and jam-packed with kale, broccoli, bell peppers, cauliflower and brown rice.  They can be made in the toaster oven, oven or microwave to delight your belly. Having a veggie cake as an afternoon snack paired with some almonds or even a cheese stick would be a great way to tide yourself over until dinner.

Scarlett is hands down the vegetable champion in this household.  Her love for peas, broccoli and cucumbers knows no bounds.  It's surprising to me how much she adores her veggies since my friends struggle to get their children to eat them.  I should consider myself lucky, I guess! Scarlett has been known to eat an entire can of peas in one sitting and can consume a raw red bell pepper in minutes!

If your child isn't like mine and doesn't have a natural affinity for veggies, the Superfood Veggie cakes would be a great for them to get many veggies at one meal.  Sometimes children don't like having one vegetable alone like broccoli on their plate and consider it "yucky." With the veggie cakes, they look like a small cake which may intrigue children.  The cake doesn't taste like a plate of vegetables, but the taste is masked by the eggs and brown rice.  I really enjoyed the veggie cake and thought it was delicious!

The veggie cake would be a perfect side dish for a toddler meal as well as an adult meal too.  If you're watching your weight and want to have a dinner that has a lower fat and calorie content, why not pair a piece of salmon with a veggie cake and fruit? Since the cakes are so versatile they can be paired with practically anything you serve them with for lunch or dinner.

I love the fact that the cakes combine so many veggies at once, it really helps you to get your vegetable serving in for the day too. It's safe to say that Garden Lite's Super Veggie Cakes are a hit in my household! Why not try them today?
