Here is my little monster! He made a huge announcement recently that he no longer wants to eat animal products. He told me that eating animals is bad for the environment and he loves nature. How could I not respect that? I’m what you would call a flexitarian. That means I eat meat on occasion, but it’s not my main food source. Honestly, I have never enjoyed the taste of meat and as I get older I have become concerned over the amount of hormones and other not so nice things in my meat. I try to avoid it as much as possible. I was excited to get chosen to speak about October being National Vegetarian Awareness Month because I knew it would mean something to my son as well. He felt as if I heard what he was saying to me about loving nature. He was so excited when I came home with Veggie Patch products!
My guys love meatballs, so I figured I would give Veggie Patch meatless Meatballs a try. First I have to say that my son gave me a huge hug when I should him the product and told him that it did not contain animals. My other son was impressed with the fact that they are low in calories and contain a good amount of protein. He’s a bit of a health nut at 8! Here are some facts about Veggie Patch products that mommy liked:
Veggie Patch offers a variety of healthy meatless ready to eat products that are good for snacks, lunch or dinner. They make food that appeals to kids. extra fat, calories and other concerns posed by meat. All Veggie Patch products are made from real vegetables, and do not contain trans fats, GMO ingredients or MSG.
