Green Eggs and Ham was the story of my life. I wouldn’t eat a thing when I was a kid, but Dr. Seuss inspired me to try cauliflower!    Jim Carrey

Cauliflower is a member of the cancer-fighting cruciferous family of vegetables, and is often overshadowed by its family member broccoli.   It’s a heart healthy anti-inflammatory wonderful vegetable that is rich in vitamins and minerals.   Cauliflower is known to boost your brain health, detoxify your liver, and provide so many digestive benefits.   All of my healthy yoga and paleo friends are crazy for the vegetable.   I love that it has a wonderful starchy taste without the calories.  

I’m a busy mom who loves to feed my family healthy foods.  Alexia has a new line of Premium Vegetable Sides that is amazing.  You can feed your family healthy and fast, faster than the long line at your nearest drive – through.    Pop a few chicken breasts in your oven with Olive Oil, Salt, and Pepper at 425 for 25 minutes.   Help your oldest child with their home work.  Then pull out a bag of Alexia’s Premium Vegetables.    Alexia’s premium veggies can be cooked on your stovetop or in your microwave, either way they are done in under 10 minutes.  Slice the cooked chicken and serve with the Alexia premium side dish.

We particularly enjoyed the Riced Cauliflower with Aged White Cheddar and Ground Black Pepper.  It goes so well with everything. Riced cauliflower and aged white cheddar with the freshest tasting cracked black pepper.   Everything is in the bag.   You simply open the bag and heat it up.

Alexia combines super-premium quality with simple ingredients that are Non-GMO Project Verified, Gluten-free and made with organic dairy ingredients.   Alexia makes delicious starch replacement side dish that doesn’t require any additional ingredients to prep and comes ready to cook out of the bag!
