Veggies Can Be Fun?


This post is sponsored by Country Crock. I was selected for this opportunity as a member of Clever Girls Collective, and the content and opinions expressed here are all my own.


As some of you can recall, I’m currently trying to pull myself out of my crappy-eating rut. And because honesty is the name of the game here at The Lunchbox Diaries, I’ve gotta tell ya: sometimes Cory and I aren’t crazy about veggies.

So when I had the opportunity to look over the Clare Crespo Cookbook (which you can download for free, by the way) I was all for it. Making veggies fun? I’ll try it!

I may be a 24-year-old newlywed, but Cory and I are still kids at heart. So when I told him we were having corn on the cob for dinner his reaction was a “meh” on the zero to awesome scale.

But when he came home to find my attempt at a rocket ship corn on the cob, he was pretty excited.

After looking over Clare’s cookbook, I wanted to raid the produce section during my weekly shopping trip. The cookbook is chock-full of fun, clever recipes that kids from 5 – 52 are sure to get a kick out of.

I’ve been eating Country Crock since..uh..forever. It’s always been a staple at the dinner table because it’s, well, freakin’ good. I always want to be the first person to use a new tub of Country Crock. You know, while it’s still perfect and has the swirl in the middle?

I should probably grow up at some point… 😉

But seriously, now that I am grown up and consider things like fat and calories, I’m pumped to know that Country Crock still comes out on top. It’s RD approved and has 70% less saturated fat and 30% fewer calories than butter. Can I get a hell yeah?! 

Are you looking for quick and simple tips and recipes to make serving veggies more fun? Download the free Clare Crespo Cookbook here for fun and whimsical recipes your family is sure to love!

I also snagged a few tips and recipes from Country Crock Chronicle.  And if you’re a social media junkie like myself, you can find Country Crock on Facebook and Twitter.

Let’s chat – What’s your favorite veggie? I could eat red bell peppers until the cows come home.

    What fun! As a semi-former-psuedo-kind of-used to be vegetarian, I’m all about veggies! Tomato (whatever, it’s a vegetable to me!), cucumber, kale, onion, green and yellow bell pepper, lettuce(s), corn of all varieties, etc. There’s nothing I love more than a giant salad with all the fixings, because I can combine several servings of veggies, flavor, and nutrition. Keep us updated :)
