Ideal for vegetarians or anyone interested in a healthy lifestyle, says the label. Make that or anyone interested in easy-to-cook, easy-to eat, simply delicious food.
Veggie Patchs Spinach, Broccoli, Corn, and Chickn VeggieNuggets look like chicken nuggets from the outside. The Chickn VeggieNuggets also taste like them on the inside, while the other three flavors could pass for hors doeuvres at an elegant party.
Our favorite was the Spinach. Swallow five crispy-on-the-outside, dead-ringers-for- spanakopita-on-the-inside mouthfuls and you wont think about the 160 calories, 370 milligrams of sodium, and five grams of fat (only one saturated). Nor will you wonder how they manage to supply 30 percent of a days worth of vitamin A and a healthy dose of lutein, the carotenoid that may protect your eyes from cataracts and macular degeneration. (Thats spinach for you.)
Instead, youll wonder (a) how to also get your hands on the companys Chickn VeggieCutlets or Veggitinos veggie meatballs (also delicious; just not as nutrient-packed) and (b) why no one ever thought of this before... vegetables plus soy protein, onions, a little oil, egg whites, and some flavorings, all refrigerated and ready to be baked, sautéed, or microwaved.
What a VeggiGreat idea.
