Tips from the Team
Convenient and Healthy!
Convenient and healthy are usually two adjectives that don’t harmonize well when addressing the improvement of our eating habits. Either we’re pressed for time or simply don’t feel like putting in much effort to prepare a healthy meal. I mean it’s been a long, stressful day. Who has more than enough energy to grab those sweet, tasty snacks on the way to embracing the couch? One alternative is to use frozen vegetables. Frozen vegetables are a convenient, healthy go-to option that saves time in getting healthier selections on our dinner plates. The steamable bags of vegetables can be picked up from the frozen section of almost any grocery store. No prep is needed. Merely take the bag straight from the freezer, into the microwave for five minutes, and on your plate are fresh steamed veggies. Any leftovers can be refrigerated and reheated the next day. Frozen vegetables hold their nutrients, last longer, and taste delicious. Be careful if choosing the flavored varieties as they can have added sodium or other ingredients we are looking to limit.
