Wild Veggie sent me samples of a few of their products. I received complementary samples of their Butternut Squash Puree, Carrot Puree and Blueberry Breakfast Bowl.
The Butternut Squash Puree makes a great shortcut for my butternut squash soup or can even be served straight up as baby food. The Carrot Puree shaves a lot of prep time off my carrot bread and carrot souflee. Those two products are absolutely worth the time saved in food preparation.
Max and I tried the Blueberry Breakfast Bowl on a recent Saturday morning. Max loves blueberries and he enjoys oatmeal, too, so I figured this would be a hit. The breakfast bowl is a blend of steel cut oats and quinoa and is topped with whole blueberries. I was skeptical about the bowl having a fresh blueberry taste, but it did!
This was the first time I’ve ever successfully got Max to eat quinoa. It really helped that it was blended with steel cut oats (a family favorite). The bowls are not overly sweet. As a matter of fact, you may decide to add a little bit of brown sugar, depending on your personal taste.
We stored the bowl in the freezer and then cooked it in the microwave. It was a quick, healthy breakfast that pleased both my toddler and me.
Max was very excited and kept yelling, “berries!” I think that means he liked it.
I think these are a great healthy weekday breakfast (or snack) for busy adults who want to eat something healthier than a fast food sandwich or sugary cereal. It’s a nice change from my typical healthy breakfast of Greek yogurt.
You can find Wild Veggie products in the freezer section of many grocery retailers. If you try them out, let me know what you think!
I was given complementary samples of three Wild Veggie Products. The opinions expressed in this review are entirely my own.
