If you follow me on Instagram then you know that my husband has spent quite a bit of time in the hospital over the past eight months. Last July he was diagnosed with diverticulitis. If you don’t know what it is the short description is that certain foods can get caught in polyps of his colon and cause infection. Long story short is that we have had to make changes to our diet and he avoids certain foods to reduce the chances of flare ups. His doctor has recommended that he be on a high fiber diet with healthy foods and regular exercise. During his last six day stay in the hospital in February we decided to take this diet a lot more seriously and make healthier eating decisions as a family, so when I heard about Green Giant’s BIG SURPRISE I was excited to take part in it!
Green Giant’s big surprise is that they are introducing NEW VEGGIE CHIPS! These chips are something that we can all eat and feel good about. A few nights ago we had fajitas for dinner and I served up Green Giant™ Roasted Veggie Tortilla Chips – Zesty Cheddar Flavor - with our guacamole. The chips passed the ‘we should buy more soon’ test here at our house. They have 17 grams of whole grain, real vegetables and are naturally flavored.
Then today I found two little sneaky boys going back and fourth from the pantry. Please tell me that my kids are not the only ones who are constantly trying to sneak snacks!? If I didn’t know any better I would say they were starving but these kids want to eat 24/7! When I went to investigate the food in hand I found the Green Giant™ Multigrain Sweet Potato Chips – Sea Salt Flavor – and how could I be mad? I mean they were leaving a trail of crumbs like Hansel and Gretel all over the floor but they were sneaking into SWEET POTATO CHIPS instead of candy, girl scout cookies or fruit snacks! Did I mention that they have 40% less fat than normal potato chips and 14 grams of whole grain?
Changing our diet and finding healthy snacks has been a lot harder than I thought it would be, so I am glad to have a new tasty snack to add to our grocery list! (Not to mention they are sharing a coupon for $0.85 which makes a good snack better! http://clvr.li/WJudoN)
