Just in time for Earth Day, today we’re sharing a great find from the grocery aisles that’s good for you and the planet – Tommy’s Superfoods. From its humble beginnings in Austin, Texas, Tommy’s Superfoods has promised to be a different kind of company. Tommy Williams started with a love of veggies, a garden, a kitchen full of cooks and a passion – to give frozen vegetables a healthy name along with a convenient way to get them, and keep them on your plate. So, he took everything he thought he knew about frozen foods and started fresh; with just the essential elements, the art of flash freezing and perfectly sourced ingredients for each and every offering.
A benefit of frozen vegetables is the tie in to reduction in food waste. Forty percent of food grown in the U.S. today is thrown away before it even reaches retail.¹ That’s more than 20 pounds per person each month.² Tommy’s products have a two year shelf life in the freezer. There is much less waste with frozen vegetables, because the shelf life is undeniably longer.³ What’s more, frozen veggies are picked and frozen at their peak of ripeness, locking in their healthy goodness. Research shows that frozen produce has the same, if not better, nutrition than their fresh counterparts.
The foundation of Tommy’s Superfoods is based on creating new, on trend, all natural, low sodium and has eight deliciously seasoned vegetable blends, from cauliflower to greens.
I’m always trying to get more veggies in my diet and lunch is the perfect place to start. Whether I’m at the office or at home, I add Tommy’s Super Greens to my soups and sandwiches for a great veggie-packed meal. I also love Tommy’s Seasoned Fiesta Quinoa. It’s perfect when I want to serve my family a tasty delicious dinner in just minutes. I serve it as a side dish or add tofu or chicken for a hearty main meal. It’s sure to please your whole family! You can also use Tommy’s Seasoned Fiesta Quinoa to make my favorite veggie burger. Check out the recipe here.
