Good news. I have a food find to share with you all!
Now that I’ve been learning more about the farming industry through Food Inc and especially The Omnivore’s Dilemma I am a little embarrassed about some of my past food finds that have some really processed ingredients. But in my defense, back then, all I did was look at nutrition info and not ingredients and I was really focused on weight loss.
Anyhoo. For some reason this garden lites Zucchini Soufflé caught my eye in the frozen section.
And this is what got me at first…the ingredient list.
Zucchini, Potatoes, Egg Whites, Whole Eggs, Onions, Brown Sugar, Rice Flour, Sea Salt, Salt and Spices.
That is IT!
Now it doesn’t say organic but I love the fact that I can read and understand each and every ingredient.
The second thing was the taste and the fill-me-up ability. When I first took it out of the packaging I thought, well THAT looks more like a snack than lunch, but it was really filling. And though the top gets pretty crunchy when microwaving at work the taste is a good balance of veggie/egg/onion flavor.
Now look at the nutrition info….

I have also tried the Roasted Vegetable (least fav) and the spinach (like it equally as much).
***Tip: If you are bringing this to work for lunch, bake it in the morning while you are getting ready so you only have to microwave it for a minute or so to heat it up. It still tastes fine in the micro but doesn’t come out that pretty.
