Peas Of Mind

25 Feb

Getting my girls to eat vegetables with their meals can be challenging.  I recently learned about Peas of Mind, all natural products made with real vegetables.  Peas of Mind sprouted from the idea that as kids begin eating solid foods, the tastes and textures they experience will shape their eating habits for a lifetime.  Their products are great for health-conscious parents who want to feed their growing kids delicious meals with organic ingredients, but don’t have the time to make them from scratch.  Peas of Mind products are found in the frozen food section of Whole Foods, other retailers can be found here.

My family received the opportunity to try a Peas of Mind product.  My youngest daughter tried the cauliflower veggie wedgies. Veggie Wedgies, which look like french fries, come in three other flavors: broccoli, carrot, cauliflower, and apple. They come frozen and are very east to make.  Place them on a baking tray and coat with non-stick spay then bake them for 10 minutes or until they are your desired crispness.  I sprinkled them with a little salt and garlic salt  Each serving has more than half a serving of your  child’s recommended fruit and vegetable intake for a day.   My daughter usually doesn’t like cauliflower but she had no problem scarfing these veggie fries down.  They make a great “veggie side” for any meal.  My oldest didn’t try them because I noticed they are made in a facility that produces nuts and she has food allergies.  I left a few to the side for myself and really enjoyed them. I am looking forward to trying other Peas of Mind products with her.

Other products include:

Mom Made Foods: Making Meal Time Easier {Review and Giveaway}

7 Jun

Last week was a pretty hectic week.  We went away for Memorial Day and when I got back I was rushing to get the class gift together for the last day of school and running around getting ready for my friend’s wedding which was Saturday.  The girls were staying the weekend with my mom so I also had a lot of grocery shopping to do. I usually just go to Whole Foods daily so I needed to make sure I had enough food for my mom and the girls so she wouldn’t have to go out. It was such a busy week preparing for the weekend and catching up from being away, easy meals were the way to go.  I stocked the freezer with Mom Made Foods and made sure to have plenty of pasta, sandwich meat, and anything easy to prepare.  The favorite for the girls was the Mom Made Meals Spaghetti and Meatballs.  My girls love it so much, Pela had to carry the box through Whole Foods one day and ate it as soon as we got home.  The girls have tried the Mom Made Mac & Cheese, Turkey Meatball Bites, Bean Burrito Munchie and Cheese Pizza Munchie and have enjoyed them all.  Mom Made Foods are perfect for when you are getting ready to go away and don’t have time to make a meal.  Mom Made Meals are quick and delicious-my husband has been known to eat the Spaghetti and Meatball on nights we don’t cook.  Click to find Mom Made Foods near you.

Comes with 4 bite size meatballs. I like serving in our Oogaa bowls to make re-heating easy if the girls don’t finish it all.
