Revolutionize The Way You Eat Your Vegetables With Garden Lites

When I was younger, my parents would let me get away with not eating vegetables at all. And I guess that is why I didn’t develop my love for them. Now that I’ve grown up and have 2 kids of my own, even though I know I have to eat healthy (not just for myself but for my family as well), I just couldn’t bring myself to eat vegetables because I don’t like their taste (seriously, I think I sound like a kid). While I eat a few vegetables like spinach, cabbage, string beans, carrots, and squash, I find myself avoiding them whenever I can.

And because of that, I made it my top priority to get my kids to eat healthy. I always make sure that they eat enough fruits and vegetables every single day. In fact, I think I did really good because they would eat any vegetables (my daughter LOVES onions) and want fruits for dessert.

Of course, being a mom has its ups and downs. There are good days when everything seems to seamlessly work out fine; and then, there are bad days when nothing you do seems to be right at all. Although my kids have both been really good eaters since they were babies, of course, there have been days when they just don’t like their vegetables at all. So imagine my excitement when I found out about Garden Lites Muffins; they are vegetable-rich muffins. Because that means I can still get them to eat vegetables without them knowing.

Wait? Did I say vegetable-rich muffins? Would that taste good at all? Read on to find out.

About Garden Lites

Garden Lites is on a mission to create DELICIOUS foods that are truly healthy because every one of their products is veggie-rich with vegetables as its first ingredient.  Why veggies?  Because the one message on health that has never changed is “eat your vegetables”. You can read more about them here.

Garden Lite products are veggie-rich, with vegetables being the first and primary ingredient in all products. Their products are gluten, dairy-free, and nut free; and they are made of simple and clean ingredients.

About The Veggie-rich Muffins

We were able to try out the Chocolate Muffins and the Blueberry Oat Muffins. I found my Garden Lites Muffins in the breakfast frozen food section at Giant! You can find yours in the freezer section of your nearest Publix, Stop & Shop, Giant, Shop-Rite, HEB, Kroger or Costco. Find a store near you by clicking on this link.

These veggie-riched muffins are both made with fresh zucchini and carrots. Each muffin has 120 calories, 3 grams of fiber, and 5 grams of whole grain.

To enjoy these healthy muffins and get that freshly-baked taste, you can either microwave it while frozen for 35 seconds; or defrost it for 4 hours at room temperature then microwave it for 10 seconds.

How Does A Healthy Muffin Taste?

Both Garden Lites Chocolate and Blueberry Oat Muffins are delicious! They didn’t taste like they have any vegetables at all. You can definitely sneak these healthy muffins in to a diet of someone who doesn’t like their vegetables (like myself) and they won’t even notice at all. Not to mention that they’re so moist and smell really good, especially after being heated up!

Even though my daughter loves her vegetables and fruits, I struggle to get her to eat carbs. I know I can’t complain; but during breakfast and snack time, she’d only eat her fruits and won’t touch her bread. Sometimes she’d take a bite and that’s it. That has always been my problem with her. But when she tried these vegetable-rich muffins, she can’t stop eating them (especially the chocolate muffin). Can you imagine how delighted I must have been?

How Garden Lites Muffins Have Changed The Way We Eat Vegetables

There are mornings when we’re running late and I have to skip eating breakfast. I love how these veggie-rich muffins make it easily attainable for me to have a healthy breakfast even while on the go. I can simply grab a pack of my Garden Lites Muffins and eat it in the car on our way to drop the kids at school and to work.

I always make sure to pack snacks for my kids whenever we take them on a short trip; be it a trip to a nearby park or playground or when we visit my in-laws. And these grab and go muffins are the best alternative to the usual snacks that I always pack for them, which are crackers and cookies. What’s great about these is that they think they’re just simply munching on these delicious muffins. What they don’t know is it’s packed with vitamins and minerals from the assorted vegetables these muffins were made with. It’s a great supplement to their diet especially on those days when they don’t want to eat their vegetables during meal time.

I get hungry a lot; in fact, my husband would always tell me that my stomach is a bottomless pit. So I need to eat snack several times during the day, especially when I’m at work. We do have a vending machine in our office but it lacks food that would satiate my hunger for a few hours. And Garden Lites muffins are the perfect solution to that. I love how I can easily just put a pack of Garden Lites Muffins in my purse before I leave in the morning, heat it in the microwave, and eat it during the day whenever I get hungry. This is perfect because it helps me get my daily dose of vegetables without really noticing it at all.

The Verdict

Garden Lites Muffins have definitely changed the way we eat vegetables, especially for me. I would highly recommend it to those who have kids who are very picky with what they eat (just like I am). They really help ensure that kids (and adults like myself) get their recommended serving of vegetables in a day.

These healthy muffins definitely exceeded our expectations!!! And I will definitely be stocking up on these!

    A kid that doesn’t gobble down carbs?! I didn’t think one existed! Haha! Seriously, though, those muffins look delicious! And they’d be the perfect way to sneak some extra veggies into our pickiest eater’s diet!

  37. February 1, 2017 / 10:10 AM

    I like to “hide” my veggies from myself in smoothies but muffins seems like an even better way to go!

  38. February 1, 2017 / 10:14 AM

    I need to find these and try them out!! Veggies are something I struggle to get into my diet more of.

  39. February 1, 2017 / 10:47 AM

    What an awesome idea. I have made zucchini chocolate bread before and it was wonderful! Anyway to sneak more veggies in is a good thing!

  40. February 1, 2017 / 11:34 AM

    This is so clever – I wouldn’t have thought they were veggie! What a genius idea! And they look SO delicious too! x

  41. February 1, 2017 / 12:19 PM

    I’ve never heard of these before, but I will definitely have to look for them at the grocery store. I love finding new and healthy snack options. Thanks for sharing!

    I’d love to try oat muffins! I haven’t seen them in shops before so maybe they don’t sell them in London. I might try and make my own then 🙂

    • February 9, 2017 / 8:59 AM

      I am not sure if they do. Check out the store locator in the link and see if they do. I hope they do; they’re really good and I’m sure you’ll like them.

  54. February 4, 2017 / 11:02 AM

    My parents never let us get away with not eating our vegetables but it is a struggle with my own children. These are great ways to make veggies more appealing to them.
