Summer Fresh: Review and Giveaway

2011 has been a year for me of starting to eat healthier. I have to say that it has by no means been easy, but the benefits in the long term are great it is so worth it. Not only do I have to eat healthier for myself, but I do have two little ones who watch everything I do. I am responsible for the eating habits that they develop so I have to teach them how to eat. Of course I still like to have my "unhealthy" treats, but I have been trying to limit it where ever possible.


The great thing is when you surround yourself with great tasting healthy foods you do not really want those unhealthy ones! Recently I was given the opportunity to try some products from Summer Fresh. This was perfect timing as I was already starting to bring more nutritious food into our home.  When I received the products I was surprised to see it was something that I had already bought for my family before.  My girls LOVE Hummus and this is a brand the family had enjoyed before. 

One of the many products I was able to try was their Meals to Go.  This is exactly what the name says it is.  It is a prepackaged meal and you have options of 3 different kinds to choose from :
1. Roasted Garlic Hummus/Taboulah/Flatbreads/Trail Mix
2. Red Pepper Hummus/Couscous/Flatbreads/Trail Mix
3. Hummus/7 Grain Salad/Flatbreads/Trail Mix

I was lucky enough to try each of these and I loved every single one of them.  You are getting a great serving sizes so your able to eat what you would like for a meal and save the rest for a snack later on in the day.  Though if you have kids like myself it ended up being shared among all of us at a meal.

As I mentioned earlier we love our Hummus though normally I buy just the Standard trying to play it safe with the children.  Though I did receive many different flavors and I have to say I was happy to receive both their Standard Hummus that we buy, but new additional flavors.  They have so many different types of Hummus, but some of my new favorites now are Classics Eggplant Olive Hummus and Classics Roasted Red Pepper Hummus.  I was sure to hide my favourites in the fridge so I would not have to fight anyone for them that is how good they were!  YUMMY!!!!

If the above is not enough they have dips that you can also enjoy and are just as good if not better.  I have to be honest and say the Classics Spinach Dip I did not get to try.  Though my husband and children finished it off the day that we got it so clearly this is a winner!  A favourite for myself was the Classics Artichoke & Asiago Dip.  I have to say ever since eating that dip I have started buying Artichokes.  If a dip tastes that great with Artichokes in it clearly I was missing out not buying them.

A great thing about Summer Fresh is that not only are they making food that is good for you, but so is their packaging.  Their containers are Re-sealable, Re-usable, Recyclable, Tamper proof and Stackable.  So you are able to stock up on all of your favourites and try a new flavour and still have room for your other groceries.  The when you are done you can recycle them.

BUY IT: Summer Fresh products can be bought at your local supermarkets so be sure to head on out and stock up for your next shopping trip!
