Super Slimming Steam
When the holidays have passed, it’s time to get back on track. No more heavy casseroles and fried foods. Serve up some nutritious, steamed vegetables! Steamed vegetables provide warm, tasty side dishes along with essential vitamins and minerals. Steaming or microwaving vegetables helps to preserve nutrients. Also, if you have to cut vegetables, they should be cut in larger pieces. Smaller pieces expose more surface area, which causes vitamin loss. You can also obtain nutrients from any liquid you cook vegetables in by using it in soups, stews or sauces. You can season vegetable dishes with salt substitutes, or spice them up with peppers, cayenne, or curry. Enjoy some fresh, steamed vegetables to fill up on nutritious foods that get you back on track with your weight loss program. Get with your Diet Center counselor for a WINNING game plan to bulk up on steamed veggies and see slimming results on the scale.
