Miss Bee waits until she's 14 to start being a picky eater. Now that she has started back with tennis, her coach has been adament with her and the team that they drink more water and eat a healthier diet. Our goal for the last few weeks has been to try and eat 10-12 fruits and vegetables a day. Let me tell you, this is not easy. I have been cramming fruits and spinach into our VitaMix for morning smoothies, so that knocks out 4-5 servings. Now I've got to come up with another 6-7 ways to make our goal.
Enter, PictSweet. As I was looking up and down the freezer aisle of veggies, I saw these...
I flipped over the back...16 pieces for only 180 calories. Fiber, protein and filling. I feel this is a much better alternative for her than french fries. A little on the high side with the sodium would be my only negative feedback.
You bake them in the oven for about 20-25 minutes and here's the tray of goodness. The coating is light and not heavily breaded. They are covered with just enough to make them crunchy.
She ate them all! We had them along with baked chicken and sauteed cherry tomatoes.
The PictSweet story is a sweet one. Since 1945, this four-generation family has made PictSweet one of the best growers and distributors of frozen vegetables in the United States. Check out their website for recipes and other products.
