Quick, Easy, Healthy: Side Dishes

The best way to make sure a meal is quick, easy and healthy is to keep it simple. Many of you may think this is not a full meal, but our weekday meals are usually 1 protein (almost always meat), 1 starch, and 1 vegetable. I occasionally add bread or salad, depending on the meal. This makes things so easy because after I do the main dish, I usually just have to worry about a vegetable and one other side dish. Here are few quick favorites we enjoy:

Quick Carrots

 Roasted Asparagus
Cheddar Potato Strips

 Of course, there's the Oven Brown Rice I've already told you about. Baked Potatoes or Sweet Potatoes are good and quicker if you use the microwave. Sweet potatoes can even be substituted in the Cheddar Potato Strips recipe above, replacing the cheese and parsley with cinnamon.

What are your favorite quick side dishes?
