I’ll be honest with you…I’m not going to eat things that I don’t love. I’m a grown up. I know what’s good for me, but I also choose to eat foods that satisfy my palate.
This idea of eating foods you love (and that love you back) are a key part of our nutrition plans at Ascend Fitness and Lifestyle (including the recipes we’re putting together for the upcoming Biggest Winner Challenge!) Early bird registration ends tomorrow!
I love making vegetables taste AMAZING, so here are some of my favorite ways:
1. Grill them. Drizzle first with olive oil, salt, pepper, and/or seasoning of your choice. Nearly any vegetable can be grilled from Brussel sprouts to kale.
2. Sautee them. Heat a pan with olive oil, add vegetables, season with salt, pepper, and any other seasoning you choose. I’m a HUGE fan of adding crushed or minced garlic to the pan and letting it brown before adding the vegetables to flavor the oil. SO GOOD!
3. Roast them. This is one of the easiest ways to prepare vegetables because it tends to work for a variety all at once. Same process – toss with olive oil, salt, pepper, seasoning of choice, and arrange in a thin layer on a baking sheet. Bake at around 350-375 until everything starts to brown. Doesn’t get easier than that!
What’s your favorite way to prepare veggies? I’m always looking for new, delicious ideas!
