Do you have a picky toddler or child in your house?
Well I do. Having a picky eater in your house can make meal time hard. I shouldn’t complain too much because my son will eat almost all the fruits, vegetables, nuts and cheese that I put in front of him. But for some reason when it comes to the main dish we have a struggle. In order to give him healthier options for his main dish I like to buy MorningStar Farms products because I know their products are healthy, flavorful and there is a large variety to choose from. My husband and I like their products too so it is a win-win.
We are also trying to do at least 2-3 vegetarian meals a week in our house and since MorningStar Farms is meatless it offers us a great line of products that we can use in our cooking.
MorningStar Farms recently came out with some new products including the Roasted Garlic & Quinoa Burger, Buffalo Chik Patties, Parmesan Garlic Wings, Mediterranean Chickpea Pizza and Baja Black Bean Pizza. In my house we really like the burgers because you can throw them on the grill, or in the microwave and use them in a variety of ways including in a sandwich like this Mediterranean Roasted Garlic and Quinoa Pita Sandwich or as a filling for burritos. It is nice to have a meal for my husband and I that we enjoy but still be able to put something healthy on the table for Will.
This Mediterranean Roasted Garlic and Quinoa Pita Sandwich uses the MorningStar Farms Roasted Garlic and Quinoa Burger which is a good source of protein. During the week when I work and need a healthy meal on our table in under 10 minutes this is one of the meals I have in my back pocket. The nice thing is I can modify each sandwich to my family members’ taste. For my husband and I, we layered roasted red peppers, hummus, red onion, fresh parsley and the roasted garlic and quinoa burger on a pita. My toddler doesn’t like the pita part of the sandwich so he gets a plain Roasted Garlic and Quinoa Burger with the vegetables on the side.
With 30+ products and 600+ recipes, MorningStar Farms has more ways to eat smart. They make it easy to eat smart, whether you go meatless every day, or every now and then like my family. Another thing I like about MorningStar Farms is that they are always creating and introducing new products and flavors so you won’t get bored.
