Garden Lites Frozen Low Calorie Souffles

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.
