Cookin’ Greens™ Wants YOU to get “GREEN WITH ENVY” Contest

Who doesn’t want to give their kids nutrient-rich dark-leafy, body-building greens? The trick is getting them to eat the good-for-you greens with the same zeal with which they devour their favourite foods. Cookin’ Greens  the dark-leafy greens that are farm-picked and, within 6 hours, double-washed, double- blanched, chopped and quick-frozen to lock in flavour and nutritional benefits – knows that moms and dads across Canada have been trying to figure this out for decades. We want to tap into your know-how and share it with parents across the land as part of our “Green With Envy” contest.  

Cookin’ Greens took on the challenge to come up with healthy and delicious greens that even the most rushed, picky diner would enjoy on a regular basis. Young, selective palates that generally don’t want to try greens are also changing their tune. Whether it’s our single vegetable chopped kale, spinach or rapini, or one of our two blends that you prefer (including our Designer’s Mix of collards, rapini, spinach, yellow beans and onion), what we want to know is:
