Food Find Alert!

In the winter, it's so hard to find good quality fresh veggies that don't cost a fortune. Just yesterday, I paid two bucks for ONE green pepper. Normally, in the summer, those are 50 cents each. That's the price to be paid for eating out of season, but dadgum!

So I turn to frozen bagged or boxed veggies. For months, I have been using the Green Giant Just for One broccoli/cheese sauce trays -- very tasty, and only 1 point per tray. I've also been using the Birdseye SteamFresh Singles for the supersweet corn. Oh so good, and again, only one point per bag.

But there are times I want something more than just the standards: broccoli, peas, carrots, green beans, corn, etc. I love French-cut green beans but usually I can only find those as canned. UNTIL --- I found Cascadian Farm Organic French-Cut Green Beans with Toasted Almonds. Two servings per box and only 1 point per serving (a generous 2/3 cup). Not only is it delicious just for the green beans alone, but you get the added bonus of slivered almonds (and all the healthy things in almonds). Oh my God, Becky.

Not only do they taste good, but it's organic food at a decent price! Sometimes, that's hard to come by........ If you live in the Western Carolinas/NE Georgia region, Ingles carries this brand. I am not sure if other stores do; Ingles is the only store in my town (and I am deeply appreciative of them!).

Hope you enjoy this food find!
