I used to be a pretty picky eater, but as I’ve gotten older, I’ve found myself branching out and trying more new foods. I don’t like to eat the same things over and over, so having a variety of food on hand in my refrigerator and in my pantry definitely helps to mix things up and ensure that my husband and I are enjoying different meals each week for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
My friends at Babbleboxx recently sent me an assortment of no fuss foods to try out this fall. Each product in this blog post is bold, flavorful and made with ingredients that are good for you. From NEW RAGÚ® Simply Chunky Marinara Pasta Sauce to Red Diamond Medium Roast Classic Blend Coffee, you’re bound to find something in this blog post that will delight your taste buds.
When I first opened my Babbleboxx and saw all of the goodies inside, I couldn’t wait to try each and every product, especially since the box contained brands and products that I had never tried before. Keep reading to hear more about these products.
NEW RAGÚ® Simply Chunky Marinara Pasta Sauce
Pasta with marinara sauce is a dinner staple in my household, so I was very excited to try out the NEW RAGÚ® Simply Chunky Marinara Pasta Sauce. This sauce is made with 100% olive oil and it has no sugar added. My husband and I often struggle to find pasta sauces that contain enough flavor. We’ve always had to add additional spices or seasonings to sauces that we’ve bought from the grocery store in the past, but with the NEW RAGÚ® Simply Chunky Marinara Pasta Sauce, we can taste each and every flavor. In each bite you can taste a hint of tomatoes, onions, garlic and spices. This sauce is downright delicious, so I feel great pairing it with my favorite pasta recipes. Lately I’ve been loving spaghetti with meatballs and this is the perfect sauce to use with that type of dish. If you’re looking for the best pasta sauce to use and kick your weeknight dinners up a notch, you need to give NEW RAGÚ® Simply Chunky Marinara Pasta Sauce a try!

Cali’flour Pizza Crust & Penne
I’ve been hearing so much about cauliflower-based products lately, so I was very excited to see that there was a Cauliflower Pizza Crust (in the Original Italian flavor) and Cauliflower and Yellow Lentil Penne from Cali’flour FOODS in my Babbleboxx. The Cauliflower Pizza Crust contains four simple ingredients - fresh cauiflowers, mozzarella cheese, eggs and seasoning - and one crust is 180 calories. It’s grain-free, gluten-free, low carb (only 6 grams of carbs for the entire crust). As for the Yellow Lentil Penne, the pasta is high protein, grain-free, gluten-free and low glycemic while only containing two ingredients.
I’ll admit, I was a little skeptical about trying the Low Carb Cauliflower Pizza Crust. I love pizza and I was afraid that the notes of cauliflower would be a little too strong for my liking, but I was pleasantly surprised. The crust tasted amazing, especially when I topped it with tomato sauce, cheese and some pepperoni. I haven’t tried the Yellow Lentil Penne yet, but I plan to combine it with the RAGÚ® Simply Chunky Marinara Pasta Sauce and topping it with a little parmesan cheese.

I love it when I can get my daily fix of fruits and veggies from something as simple as a muffin or veggie cake. I’ve been enjoying the Garden Lites Blueberry Oat Muffins and the Garden Lites Superfood Veggie Cakes. Each product comes with either six muffins or six cakes and you can find them in the frozen section of your local grocery store.
The Blueberry Oat Muffins are only 110 calories and they’re allergy-friendly as well as gluten, dairy and nut-free! Believe it or not, the first ingredient in them is zucchini!I love to heat mine in the microwave for 30 sections and enjoy them for as part of a quick and healthy breakfast before heading off to work for the day. They’re perfect for anyone who is on-the-go and since you can just pop them in the microwave and enjoy them right away, or you can defrost them at room temperature and eat them with your lunch or as a healthy snack.
The Garden Lites Superfood Veggie Cakes include veggies like Kale and Cauliflower and they’re less than 100 calories. On top of that, they’re gluten-free! I like to eat these Veggie Cakes with my lunch. The easiest way for me to prepare them is to place them in the toaster oven until they’re warm and crisp.

Red Diamond Medium Roast Classic Blend
Who doesn’t love a nice cup of coffee in the morning? There’s nothing better than sipping on a warm mug full of your favorite blend. I’ve really enjoyed this 11 oz. bag of Red Diamond Classic Blend Ground Coffee. It taste great and offers a bold flavor that helps me start my mornings off on the right foot.
In case you didn’t know, Red Diamond grows and hand picks their coffee beans at high altitudes. They’re sun dried and roasted in small batches which helps in offering the perfect cup of coffee for anyone that brews their blends. With each sip, you can tell that Red Diamond puts a lot of care into their products and that they don’t take any shortcuts. Each cup of their coffee or tea tastes great and has a rich, smooth flavor that you can’t find with other brands.
While I love to prepare and drink this coffee with milk, my husband enjoys drinking it black. We’ve tried several different drink variations and this coffee is great to drink when it’s hot or iced!
Here’s a special offer for all my coffee lovers:
