March Giveaway – Green Giant Gift Pack

Published by at 10:25 am under Contests and Giveaways

There’s only 1 day left in March, but it’s better late than never to post this month’s giveaway, right? Green Giant is promoting their new line of frozen boxed vegetables in a variety of different flavors. The one we received is the Broccoli & Cheese Sauce to sample. With a very busy schedule, we don’t always have the time to make a fancy dinner, so many times we do rely on frozen vegetables to accompany our main course. I’m a huge advocate of always having some sort of vegetables with a lot of fiber with my meals, so these ready-to-heat vegetables are huge time savers and tastes great. Not to mention, you don’t have to cut and wash the vegetables either! Major score!

So if you are one of those people who love vegetables like me, then enter this month’s giveaway where you will get a coupon to redeem a Green Giant Broccoli & Cheese Sauce along with an insulated tote bag, serving spoon, bowl, and pedometer. Yes, a pedometer! That’s to get you motivated to get healthy and fit since summer is just around the corner. Everything can be yours if you are the lucky winner!

Here’s how to enter:

  • Leave a comment letting us know your favorite way to prepare and serve vegetables with your meal. Do you use frozen vegetables? Do you prefer to go to the Farmer’s Market to get the latest fresh ingredients? Or is it merely a piece of iceberg lettuce on your huge hamburger because you can’t stand vegetables?
  • Be sure you are an email subscriber of The Food Addicts so you can get updates on our posts as well as notifications for future monthly giveaways.
  • Contest ends Sunday, April 3rd at 11:59PM PST. Good luck!

    In the winter, I use frozen vegetables often, because they are cheaper. In the summer I try to use fresh as much as possible.

  2. Deborah Andersonon 30 Mar 2011 at 10:36 am

    I’m a subscriber! I love veggies, but it’s hard to find fresh ones in my area, so I have to rely on frozen usually. I’ll throw some garlic slices and almond slivers into a package of stir-fry veggies just to give it my own personal touch.

    whether its cubanelle peppers from my back garden pan seared on a cast iron pan with a little bit of garlic olive oil, or fresh greens from the farmer market tossed in olive oil & apple cider vinager, i keep it clean & vitamin packed. i love roasted beets, tossed in olive oil, fresh thyme, some red chilli flakes & crushed garlic & stepping in its own juices in 300 degree oven for about an hour or so.

    Roasted red peppers are my fave! I buy them by the pound from the farmers market or Costco, wash ‘em and then rub ‘em with some olive oil, then trwo ‘em on the grill with my steaks and chicken. :) I used to eat canned veggies but got hip to the fresher tasting frozen ones.

  5. Peteron 30 Mar 2011 at 10:46 am

    I love cooking my vegetables w/ my meal, but other times I just have it boiled (yeah I know you lose a lot of the nutrients but it’s better than nothing) and dip it in fish sauce or soy sauce to have w/ my rice meal. Ideally fresh is the way to go, but I do favor frozen vegetables because they tend to be more convenient and store a lot longer than fresh vegetables. As far as Farmer’s markets go, I don’t think I’ve been to one. =P

  6. Laura Lon 30 Mar 2011 at 10:47 am

    I like fresh vegetables, steamed so they keep their flavor, color and crispness, or for a change I’ll lightly saute them in a little bit of olive oil and a spritz of Balsamic vinegar. I love summer and fall when the farmer’s markets are open so we can get really fresh vegetables and fruits!

  7. Athenaon 30 Mar 2011 at 11:00 am

    I prefer fresh vegetables either roasted or stir fried. Sometimes, I’ll use frozen green beans and saute them in olive oil with garlic.

  8. martina feganon 30 Mar 2011 at 11:11 am

    Because we love vegetables, there isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t serve either fresh or frozen vegetables. Sometimes I throw them in a stew or soup (great way to sue odd and end leftovers). Sometimes they are the basis for a meal – just add a little baked chicken surrounded by veges.

  9. Sandyon 30 Mar 2011 at 11:24 am

    Since I grew up on my mom’s cooking, I usually try to cook my vegetables the way my mom did (Since her cooking is awesome!). I would stir fry it, use tons of garlic, perhaps a black bean sauce or oyster sauce. She always used fresh vegetables so that’s what I do too!

  10. Brandyon 30 Mar 2011 at 11:39 am

    I almost always use frozen veggies unless I am making a salad. They are the cheapest and seem to last the longest since I don’t eat veggies that often. I am making more of an effort, though, to get some in every day :D

  11. donette masonon 30 Mar 2011 at 12:48 pm

    I use Green Giant frozen vegetables all year round. I live far out in the country and we have terrible soil. I can’t get to the store very easily, so when I do I stock up!

  12. KellyFon 30 Mar 2011 at 1:16 pm

    I use mostly canned and frozen veggies in the colder months, but in the warmer months I love to use locally-grown produce, especially tomatoes and sweet corn!

  13. Karenon 30 Mar 2011 at 2:52 pm

    I do a mix of fresh or frozen mostly. With an occasional can or corn or green beans. I prefer fresh of course but it is usually cheaper to go frozen and then to stock up when the sales are on. I love having my pantry and freezer bulging with future eating opportunites. :-) We love stirfry veggies best but in the summer love all kinds of veggies in green salads and pasta salads. Winter time we love lots of veggies in soups.

  14. Stefon 30 Mar 2011 at 4:52 pm

    I prefer fresh vegetables in the summer when they are at their peak locally but frozen vegetables I love to make, especially if there is some sort of sauce such as cheese , which I can cook up in minutes and use them as an omelet filling……delicious,healthy, inexpensive and the best part quick and easy!

  15. Rachelon 30 Mar 2011 at 7:16 pm

    I’ll be honest–I’m one of those who would put a piece of Iceberg lettuce on my burger because I am not a fan of a lot of veggies. I have discovered that I don’t like cauliflower, I’ve never liked peas, broccoli, or Brussels sprouts. I have also discovered that green beans aren’t as bad as I once thought, and I like most salad greens. I’ll eat things like carrots and celery if they’re pureed in soup, and peppers aren’t too bad if they’re grilled.

  16. Whitneyon 30 Mar 2011 at 7:23 pm

    I use tons of frozen veggies, but also fresh vegetables during the week. On nights when I’m pinched for time, I use frozen broccoli a lot, and I enjoy having the Asian stir-fry vegetable mix on hand for a quick skillet meal without a lot of chopping. However, I always keep fresh peppers, greens, onions, carrots, celery, and green onions in the fridge for cooking as well!

  17. Erin from Long Islandon 30 Mar 2011 at 7:57 pm

    i LOOOOOVE veggies! Freshness is key to me. If I can get it from my yard or the farmers market, I feel that is best. Often flash-frozen are better nutritionally then fresh that were harvested over a week ago!
    For anyone who hates ….. try it a different way. I thought I hated Brussels sprouts til I roasted them!

  18. Sheri Charboneauon 30 Mar 2011 at 9:11 pm

    I used veg in many ways…
    Fresh if it is in season and I always have frozen veggies in my freezer.
    One of my Favorite things to make is a shrimp and veggie pasta salad..heavy on the peas.It is always a crowd pleaser.
    Another fav is Cold Pea soup with mint and a dollop of creme fraiche.

    My four year old son normally starts to complain if he sees vegetables on his plate… ‘I DON’T WANT ANY CARROTS!’ but thankfully he loves peas and sweetcorn. Normally these will be tinned or frozen but for a special treat… and mess! We’ll have corn on the cob with a knob of butter left to slowly melt over the top. Mmmm, might pick up some corn on the cobs on the way home for tonight :O)

  20. Francion 31 Mar 2011 at 9:55 am

    I always use fresh veggies… love to just saute them in some oil and garlic! Yum!

  21. Shawnon 31 Mar 2011 at 4:31 pm

    I really like using Steamers vegetables in the microwave. I love how fresh they taste and they are so easy to prepare.


  22. Kristenon 31 Mar 2011 at 7:51 pm

    Vegetables are my favorite, and one of the best ways is either simply sauteed with some garlic or roasted, yum!!

  23. Audreyon 02 Apr 2011 at 8:40 am

    I love big salads with lots of fresh vegetables, and I make vegetable stir-fries a lot using fresh or frozen veggies.

  24. Pauletteon 02 Apr 2011 at 8:15 pm

    farmer’s market rain or shine, year round, every week. my favorite way to eat vegetables is raw in spring rolls, cold noodle dishes, vietnamese wrap style!

  25. David Farrison 03 Apr 2011 at 12:16 am

    I love the fresh vegetables and the bag

  26. Chris and Amyon 03 Apr 2011 at 6:57 am

    We usually buy fresh vegetables and steam them just a little bit so they stay crunchy.

  27. susitravlon 03 Apr 2011 at 3:55 pm

    I love fresh steamed veggies with ICBINB. For asparagus and broccoli and add a little lemon juice too.

  28. Gwenon 04 Apr 2011 at 7:37 am

    Bummer I know that I am too late for the contest but I wanted to share the following ideas. I rely heavily on frozen veggies, but supplement with fresh when they are in season. I put frozen BROCCOLI in my fruit smoothies. You’ll really never know it’s there but it is filling and takes the place of ice! You need a really great blender or else you might have to thaw the frozen broccoli for a few seconds in the mirowave first…. My son (6 years old) very willingly lets me put the frozen broccoli in his smoothies, too. He likes the idea of being healthy, without having to struggle with cooked broccoli at dinner time… I also use frozen peas, corn, string beans, lima beans, carrots, and mixed veggies to “stretch” other meals. I put them in canned soup to freshen it up, add them to casseroles or boxed mac-n-cheese for the kids, fold them into egg white omelettes or quiches, mix them into rice, add them at the last minute to anything in the crock pot, and even stir them into spagetti sauce.
