Garden Lites has done it again – and with TWO vegan products!

I recently won Garden Lites’ blog contest, in which I won a month’s supply of Garden Lites products. I was really excited, as not only am I a tremendous fan of their Roasted Vegetable Soufflé, I have been looking forward to trying some of their other products that are not available for purchase at Publix in South Florida.

I was most looking forward to trying their Butternut Squash Soufflé, which I had seen on their website, but lo and behold I was blown away by their Zucchini Marinara. I’ve heard a lot about zucchini pasta and have been saving up to buy a vegetable spiralizer myself,  so when I saw this product in my prize I couldn’t wait to try it. Not only is it vegan, which I’m leaning more and more towards lately, but it is just like eating pasta marinara without the heavy caloric content. Fresh, crunchy zucchini noodles are enveloped in an amazing sweet marinara sauce that is absolutely divine. I can’t imagine homemade tasting better than this. Now all I need is for my local Publix to carry it! So if anyone is a Publix executive or knows one, please let them know!

The Butternut Squash Soufflé also certainly did not disappoint. It is heavier than the Roasted Vegetable that I like so much, but that was to be expected. I think this one is something I could share equally as a side dish rather than eating an entire one next time. But the rich flavor is what makes it so delicious, so I’m more than happy to try and stuff it down all by myself =)

Overall, I’m even more impressed (if that is possible) with Garden Lites after trying their full line of products, my absolute favorites still being the Roasted Vegetable Soufflé, Zucchini Marinara (VEGAN), Zucchini Portabella (VEGAN) and the Butternut Squash Soufflé. Thank you Garden Lites for this wonderful, and unexpected, prize! You certainly have made a huge fan out of me!

The Importance of Being Earnest (Whole Food Bar)

by jem614

By Jessica Michael


My lunch on Thursday was desperately lacking in calories, so by 2:30 I was ravenous.  I literally left work so I could get something to eat.  You know the kind of hungry: desperately searching for anything with chocolate, butter and sugar.

Thankfully, I ended up at Nutrition S’Mart and found this amazing little whole food bar.  It had all the ingredients I was searching for, but better for me.  It looked like a cookie but don’t let it fool you.  That bar was dense and packed with nutrition:
230 Calories (it’s a little high but because my lunch consisted of 140 calories, I was fine with this), Oats, nuts, nut butters, seeds, organic dark chocolate, and most importantly, vegan.

What a great little find, I didn’t feel guilty eating it and it carried me from 3:00 in the afternoon all the way till I left class at 9pm.    Thanks Earnest Eats!
