Healthy Snack or Side: Garden Lites Spinach Souffle
Posted Apr 10 2011 12:03pm
I always pass by these Garden Lites Souffles in the frozen section of the grocery store
Finally I decided to spend the pricey $3.99 to try one small souffle. What caught my attention is that the packaging is BPA free. That’s one bad thing about a lot of frozen foods. If you microwave the food in a normal plastic container, you are likely getting BPA in your food.
Another great thing is that these souffles have all natural ingredients. Just vegetables, eggs, starches, and some seasonings. One souffle is only 140 calories, 1 g fat, has 4 g fiber, and 10 g protein! This would make an excellent snack, or side for a meal. And it packs 140% of your daily value for vitamin A, and is an excellent source of vitamin C. The sodium is a little high. I would like to see it a little lower. 200 mg sodium would be more acceptable.
So, what does it taste like?
This gives you a size comparison of how big it actually is. It is a decent size. A little on the small side, but it was satisfying for me. I liked the flavor as well. I expected it to be bland, but it was quite tasty. I did end up sprinkling some Parmesan cheese on it though.
The inside is surprisingly very light and fluffy, and the outside is more dense. It is not crispy because I microwaved it. But, the texture is nice for a microwave product.
I would definitely buy these again, but probably only if they go on sale because they are more expensive.
