These Veggie Fitters are such an easy way to get a bunch of veggies in and they taste amazing too. I love them with some sweet potato fries on the side and some sliced avocado on top. Add some salsa for an extra kick! They’re perfect for an easy weeknight dinner and taste so good the next day for lunch. They are a hit with the kids too… winning! Lunchbox idea sorted!
