Green Giant Valley Fresh Broccoli and Cheese Sauce Steamers Review

Organic Valley Reduced Fat Chocolate MilkConfession time: I don't eat enough vegetables! There now you know my secret. Everyday it's a struggle, but I really do try. I love salad, but when it comes to cooked vegetables, I just don't like the taste. I like the steam in the bag idea, and since most vegetables are flash frozen quite soon after harvesting, the nutritional profile is not too far from the fresh stuff. I decided to give Green Giant 100% Natural Valley Fresh Broccoli and Cheese Sauce Steamers a try.

I followed the directions and put it in the microwave for 5 minutes. The broccoli came out like crunchy hard chunks. It was delicious with the cheese sauce, which although it provides extra calories, also made it quite tasty. Thankfully it wasn't too goopy and there wasn't too much of it. I shared it with 2 kids, and while they didn't eat all their portion, they didn't complain about the taste either. I can't speak for all kids - oooh, they can be so picky - but this was well received by the ones I gave it to. From an adult's perspective - 2 thumbs up!

Each 1/2 cup (cooked) serving of Green Giant Valley Fresh Broccoli and Cheese Sauce provides only 45 calories, 1.5 grams of total fat which is 2% of the recommended daily amount, no saturated or trans fat, 16% of the RDA for sodium (380 mg), 2 grams of protein and 7 grams of total carbihydrates which includes 3 grams of sugar and 8% of the RDA for fober (2 grams).

I bought a 12 ounce bag, which has 3 servings for a very reasonable $1.50. I had actually picked up a small bundle of asparagus before this, but it cost $3.58 and this was just so much more economical.
