It can be difficult to get the recommended five to seven servings of fruits and vegetables each day particularly if you’re on the go. Unless you prepare your own meals, you may find your diet woefully lacking in fruits and vegetables. If you need your vegetables to be quick and easy, you may want to consider trying Mann’s Sunny Shores Light Bites. This is a relatively new product that strives to make eating vegetables tasty, fast and easy. Mann’s Sunny Shores Light Bites are a great source for quick vegetables for both children and grown-ups who need their “five to seven”.
What exactly are Mann’s Sunny Shore Light Bites? Light bites are prepared packages of fresh vegetables that come conveniently packaged with your choice of dips. The dip choices are all relatively healthy and include roasted red pepper hummus, classic hummus, sun butter, and vanilla yogurt dip. The sun butter dip is made from pureed sunflower seeds. the veggie and fruit choices consist of various types of fresh produce including combinations of broccoli, celery, tomatoes, apples, and carrots. You’ll find two servings of quick vegetables in each easy-to-use package along with a serving of your chosen dip.
It appears that Mann’s has taken the extra effort to make the dips packaged with the quick vegetables as healthy as possible. Each dip has between fifty and one hundred calories per serving and is completely trans fat free. All of these dips have relatively high nutritional value, made from such ingredients as chickpeas for the hummus, as well as yogurt, and sunflower seeds.
The beauty of this product is that it’s healthy and convenient. You can easily imagine yourself pulling out a package of these quick vegetables with their dip for a fast snack or offering them to the kids for an after school snack. Most kids balk at vegetables but they’ll embrace Mann’s Sunny Shore Light Bites because they come packaged with a tasty dip. It’s a convenient and slightly sneaky way to ensure they’re getting their fruit and veggie quota each day. It’s also a chance for both the adults and kids in your household to get more raw foods. Raw vegetables, in some cases, have been shown to have higher nutrient contents than cooked ones.
How do they taste? Mann’s Lite Bite quick vegetables, of course, taste like vegetables. But when you plunge them into the dip, you get a whole new taste sensation. The roasted red pepper hummus and the sun butter dips are particularly tasty, although the kids might prefer the vanilla yogurt dip since it reminds them of ice cream. My only criticism of this product is that I would have preferred the vegetables to be organic. With concerns about pesticide residues on produce being so high these days, these would be an additional selling point.
As a whole, Mann’s Sunny Shore Light Bites are a healthy addition to the produce aisle for those who seek convenience. If you’re looking for a way to get your family to encourage your family to eat veggies as snacks rather than the wealth of unhealthy options out there, these quick vegetables with their tasty dip may be your answer.
