I was a little hungry the other day and there was not alot of food options in the fridge, so I decided to cut up some red, green and banana peppers and mix them together. I was actually surprised how filling this dish was and also the taste was amazing. Bell peppers are a great source of Vitamin A,C, B6 and rich in antioxidants.  I will definitely be making this again!

Ingredients are simple and inexpensive:

  • 1 green pepper
  • 1 red pepper
  • Banana peppers

Here is another simple dish that I decided to make the following day. Steamed and raw broccoli mixed with a hint of Asian sesame seed sauce. Broccoli is a excellent source of fiber, Vitamin C and K. I made this dish in less than 5 minutes, filled me up and was delicious. They key is to mix steamed broccoli with some raw broccoli. Try it out and let me know how you like it.

Ingredients:

  • Steamed and Raw Broccoli
  • Kraft light Asian Sesame seed dressing 

There are always ways to keep it simple, inexpensive and healthy at the same time. Find more ways to incorporate more of these in your daily meals and share your ideas with us. Have a great day!

    Did steamed broccoli tonight, but put a little fresh grated parmesan on it. Steamed that will baby carrots. Even my daughter cleaned her plate.

  2. Thanks for the suggestions in this post. I love sprouting and would probably add some mung bean sprouts (which take about four days) or some alfalfa sprouts (which are done in two days). Sprouted veggies (including broccoli have far more nutrients than the actual veggies). Sprouting is fun and easy and I highly recommend it!

  3. Hi L-Jay,
    Winters in India can be pretty frustrating since its a tropical country. I tried ur recipe today in the morning, steamed and stirred broccoli, bell peppers, cauliflower and carrots, added a pinch of salt and black pepper powder and it tasted YUMMY!! I mentioned winters because its really a pain to find healthy and filling veggie dishes during winter. Most of the recipes are oily and sweet. NOT GOOD!! Your recipe is a welcome change to that.
