Champion Performance Recipe of the Week - 2 Ingredient Recipes, Part VI

It's amazing how many things you can make with just two ingredients! As we hit Part 6 of my 2-Ingredient Recipes Series, let's focus on veggies. Lots and lots of veggies. ;-) Athletes and Clean-Eaters alike thrive on an abundance of vegetables... green leafy, green, red, orange, yellow, brown, white... there are so many to choose from! And when your diet involves a reduction in starchy carbs, you can freely fill up on non-starchy veggies. PLUS... if you use my steamer bag method, it makes your one-day food prep a SNAP!!

Easy Steamed Veggies

Sprinkle veggies with Mrs Dash and steam per your preferred method.

I find the Ziploc Zip'N Steam Cooking Bags to be an invaluable addition to my kitchen. When I do my one-day food prep, I chop my veggies, bag them, add Mrs Dash and toss them in the fridge until I need them. They're easily portable - just toss in your cooler and go! And they make mealtime prep a cinch! Just grab a bag, nuke, and eat!

Some of my favorites....
Asparagus & Mrs Dash Garlic & Herb or Mrs Dash Lemon Pepper. Microwave 2.5 minutes then squirt fresh lemon juice on the asparagus.
Broccoli & Cauliflower with Mrs Dash Garlic & Herb
Zucchini & Yellow Squash with Mrs Dash Garlic & Herb
Green Beans & Brown Mushrooms (baby bella / crimini) with Mrs Dash Garlic & Herb (got room for fat? add slivered almonds!)
Peppers (red, green, orange, yellow) & Mrs Dash Garlic & Herb
Snow Peas & Cherry Tomatoes with Mrs Dash Garlic & Herb. Microwave 1.5 minutes. (got room for fat? add 1 tsp coconut oil to the steamer bag).
Diced Potatoes, Peppers & Onion with Mrs Dash Garlic & Herb and Mrs Dash Southwest Chipotle

Can you tell the Garlic & Herb blend is my favorite? ;-) I also love the Fiesta Lime on Tilapia, the Southwest Chipotle & Extra Spicy blends on beef or chicken, and the Tomato, Basil & Garlic Blend on beef or chicken! So many to play with!

You can find tons of steamed veggie combos on my website:  http://recipeforfitness.com/recipes/sides/index.html

I love, love, LOVE Mrs Dash! ;-)
