Busy kids, busy parents, busy lives! With so much going on these days, it’s important to find simple solutions for your time-crunched schedule. But when it comes to food, simple doesn’t always mean healthy. Forget the frozen foods, toss the idea of take-out, and make the switch to farm-fresh for you and your family with these One Step…Done!™ Potatoes from Green Giant™ Fresh.

When it’s dinnertime and you need a healthy veggie, just toss the whole package of One Step…Done!™ Potatoes in the microwave for six minutes, then shake the bag to coat potatoes with the delicious seasonings. We all know that foods labeled under the “convenience” variety are not always the healthiest options…except when it comes to these potatoes.

First of all, they’re real, fresh potatoes right inside the bag. Depending on which flavor variety you purchase you’ll find mini red or mini yellow potatoes inside. Speaking of flavors, there’s one for everyone in the family – Garlic Rosemary, Cajun, and Roasted Red Pepper. The flavors are real, chef-inspired seasonings just like the ones in your own kitchen.

Now, let’s talk nutrition. Farm-fresh potatoes are a part of a balanced and healthy lifestyle. These One Step…Done!™ potatoes come in at only 120 per serving! Additionally, these fan-favorite vegetables provide 18% of your daily potassium needs, 45% daily vitamin C requirements, 2 grams of fiber, and 10% daily suggestion for B6! Complex carbohydrates, like the one found in potatoes, provide you and your littles with a ton of non-processed and healthy energy that we all need.

Here’s a few ways to use One Step…Done!™ Potatoes at home:

  • Snack: Instead of handing out sugary granola bars or fruit snacks, microwave some One Step…Done!™ potatoes and serve with sliced cheese or apple. Oddly enough, apples and potatoes pair extremely well together. Or serve One Step…Done!™ potatoes with a side of ranch dressing or ketchup because, let’s be honest, most kids will eat anything with their favorite dipping sauce.
  • Side Dish: No time to make wash, slice, prep, and cook a healthy side? You know what we’re going to say here…pop a package of One Step…Done!™ potatoes in the microwave for a super easy side dish in six minutes.
  • Main Event: Add One Step…Done!™ potatoes to skewers and toss them on the grill like we did in this recipe for Garlic Rosemary One Step…Done!™ Potato & Steak Skewers!

No matter how you choose to use this convenient and healthy side, it’ll always be a good idea.
