Great Green Giant Veggie Swaps

Veg Out

Christmas time may be over, but we’re still saying “ho, ho, ho.” We are starting off the New Year, and all those weight loss resolutions, with Green Giant’s fantastic quick and easy recipes. They’re bringing tons of great new options to the table to help us discoverthe difference veggies can make.

It all started in 1903, when a small canned vegetable company was born in the United States—the Minnesota Valley Canning Company. Their Green Giant made his first appearance in 1925. He was named after a particularly large variety of pea, which was harvested and sold by the company.

Through the years, he evolved into a friendlier—and greener—character, known for presiding over the vegetables grown in his valley with a deep and jolly, “Ho, Ho, Ho!” In 1950, he became the iconic symbol for the company, when Minnesota Valley Canning Company became Green Giant Company. Green Giant continues to be known for their “steam locked goodness,” which is crucial to bringing quality products to consumers’ tables. Their farmers take great pride in growing the tastiest and highest quality vegetables.

How Turning Up the Music and Dancing in the Kitchen Is Good for the Soul … and Great for Healthy, Creative Cooking


Everything’s better when there’s music involved, and that includes food. Just like music can set the mood in your everyday life, it can also set the mood in the kitchen. The mood-boosting benefits of listening to your favorite tunes as you chop, braise, roast, sauté, stir-fry, or grill can often be just as important as the ingredients you put into your meal. Music not only helps to make cooking more fun, but it also helps to inspire your creativity in the kitchen when it comes to healthy cooking.

ROCKTOBER is the perfect time to pump up the volume, pump up the energy and pump up the flavors when it comes to cooking healthy dishes. Whether it’s streaming your favorite Spotify or Pandora playlist, popping in your favorite old CDs, or simply turning on a kitchen radio, let the energy of the music fill your kitchen. Rock out, and dance as you cook! The power of your favorite songs can transport you to anywhere you want to go, boosting both your mood and creativity. Plus, dancing in the kitchen is a great way to clear your mind, soothe your soul and burn some calories.
