I nearly screeched with delight when I saw this product in the natural food section of the grocery store today. I do not shop IN the grocery store often. (This is not my choice. I want to go more!) When we do shop, it's typically a dash and grab at Super Wally world therefore seeing the inside of a regular grocery store is FUN for me. (Sad, I know, but I thought you should know, because I eat so little variety because of this.)

The Garden Lites Frozen Souffle is an egg based microwaveable product, but you can also cook it in the oven. I was super hungry when we got home from the store, so I tossed the souffle into the microwave and dug in immediately and burned my throat. Go me.
The top of the souffle, or at least the edges, got a decent crispy texture, and the insides were extra fluffy. What pleased me about this product, that was even though I zapped it? There was no MUSHY! Often zucchini makes food wet. This was not wet, it was fluffy and soft. Next time, I would probably cook it in the oven, because I think it might get more crispy that way.
And, since it's eggs, I WAS FULL. Actually, I was overfull, and threw away the last bite and a half. On 140 calories. Win. Full is good.
I would suggest one HALF of these souffles for an earlier post op, while they look super-small, the package reads seven ounces. I have a big capacity for food, eggs? Not usually.
