I generally use September more as my “New Year” than January, because it follows the Jewish new year, and it’s an incredible opportunity for a fresh start. In summer, I’m often without routine. For one, the kids were in different camps all summer long, and now they’re home with me for 1-2 weeks of chaos. And for another, this summer was particularly rough on a good exercise routine. Our puppy wasn’t old enough and hadn’t yet had the right shots for the dog park, and the humidity was too thick there anyway. I’m looking forward to a new rhythm and new routine for September. No more skipping lunch!
That’s right – I skipped lunch sometimes during the summer break. Too much work, too much parenting, and too much heat. Then I’d reach for something high in carbs and want to fall asleep. My perfect lunch consists of protein and vegetables and I’m so happy to have found Green Giant Fresh Meal Bowls at my local store. They were right in the fresh section of my store – right where we walked in! I was excited to find a delicious variety for every member of my family, and then some.
So now I’m psyched for a new routine for the school year. I’ll drop the kids off and get to work. Then I’ll take a late morning break to bring both dogs to the dog park. After that it’s a delicious Green Giant Fresh Bowl for lunch. More work, picking up the kids, and then settling into the after school until dinner and bedtime routine. I really do thrive on routine and I love that a vegetable-filled lunch will help me. And they’re so easy to make – just look at that pretty, microwaveable packaging!
So what are they like?
Well they are new and exciting from Green Giant Fresh! It’s an exciting new line of microwaveable fresh vegetable Meal Bowls that come in a fun variety of deliciously district world flavors! Simple as that. They are all 100% vegetable and vegan. You can microwave them right in the bowl, and then they’re ready in minutes. They’re good for both kids and adults.
Ok, that sounds fun. Do you eat them as is?
Good question! You can eat them right out of the packaging within minutes. There are yummy sauces that you set aside before microwaving, and then add to the vegetables. For the Carrot Noodle Pad Thai Bowl, I did not add anything.
For my other two bowls, I read the suggestions about adding an egg or two. You can add shrimp, chicken, avocado, egg, tofu, beans, turkey, etc. For an awesome breakfast or brunch, I totally add eggs to my Green Giant Fresh Meal Bowls!
Love them! I love the egg with all of the vegetable in the “Fried Rice” and with the sweet potato and cauliflower. I feel like there’s so much to love here. That’s why I’m excited to share these with you! Be sure to check them out here.

I’ve been NOTICING Green Giant stepping up their game to compete with brands that are making these types of meals/foods – and I have to say, I am QUITE IMPRESSED with their innovation!!

I would probably add some protein. I hadn’t seen these before, but they look delicious. I definitely want to try one. 😊
I have not seen these before bot they look really great! I will be keeping an eye out for these!

Totally have skipped lunch here, too a bit this summer with my kids home. So, I am with you on getting back into lunch time routine with back to school for me, as well. And going to try to find these bowls now for sure. So, thanks for sharing with me 🙂
I did not know these existed! Now I need them 🙂 Yum!
