Save the Nutrients

Being nutritious doesn’t have to be time-consuming! In fact, steaming or microwaving your vegetables is the best (and fastest) way to retain nutrients.

For steaming:
Put 2 inches of water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Place a steamer basket in the pot, fill with vegetables, and cover for 10 minutes… Simple as that!

For microwaving:
Use the microwave to severely cut down on cooking time. For example, use the microwave to cook a sweet potato in less than 5 minutes (compared to an hour in the oven). Just pierce the potato with a fork, microwave on high for a few minutes, and you’re good to go!
