 Being the only woman in a house full of boys, I can tell you that it is not always easy to get these guys to eat their veggies! My two little boys (6 and 3) love fruit and could eat it all day long, but when it comes to vegetables, it’s a completely different story – they just don’t want to touch them. As a result, I have had to come up with some creative ways to get my boys (and my husband) to eat more.

One of my favorite ways to do that is to combine the vegetables with other foods and flavors that they love so that it  is easier for them to eat. Fortunately for me, all of the boys in my house like soup – so for me it is easy to come up with soups that have lots of vegetables, and sometimes you can’t even tell that they are there!

I recently discovered a new type of soup – Good Natured Soups from Progresso™. These come in a variety of flavors that you will love such as Hearty Corn and Chipotle Chowder, Hearty Tomato with Spinach and Roasted Garlic, and Hearty Lentil with Garden Vegetables. Each variety offers 3/4 cups of vegetables in each serving and I can tell you – they taste great! We tried the Hearty Corn and Chipotle Chowder today, and it was a great meal. It combines corn, red bell peppers, and pinto bean powder which makes the soup rich and creamy and it is seasoned with  garlic, sea salt, chipotle pepper puree and smoked paprika. I had no trouble getting my whole family to eat this and they really enjoyed it. If you want to try them out, now is a great time – use this coupon to get $1.00 off.

To keep the vegetable theme going, I decided to see if I could get them to eat even more veggies by making these delicious Bacon and Garlic Asparagus. I personally love asparagus, but I feel like it has to be cooked in a certain way for most people to try it.

Since we were already having a lot of other vegetables with this meal, I decided that a little bit of bacon could go a long way to get my boys to try asparagus too! These are so easy to make, and I was right – my whole family loved them and said that we should have them more often.
