    What are your favorite recipes for "healthy" sides and salads for lunch/dinner? Aaron and I are trying to eat healthier and we're not to the point where we're bored with our food yet but I don't want to get to that point.

    So tell me: What are your favorite recipes for "healthy" sides and salads for lunch/dinner?

    Usually I throw a bag of steamed veggies in the microwave and serve the uncle ben 90sec rice or browned pot from the oven. I don't get home from work until 5:30pm and it's hard to make a nice meal especially if we don't want to eat at 8pm!

    Well salad wise, I love greek salads, romaine, feta cheese, grape tomatoes and red onion with some low fat greek dressing

    As for sides, I love the fresh steamers green valley bags, my favorite is potatoes and green beans in a butter sauce, but I also like the garden medley. I love making corn on the cob, and using cauliflower to make mashed potatoes.

    Homemade Salsa (lots of ingredients but the results are totally worth it - makes a big batch too)

    1 bunch of FRESH cilantro (minced or chopped in blender)
    1 green bell pepper (chopped)
    1 red bell pepper (chopped)
    1 small can white corn
    1 small can yellow corn
    1 chopped small red onion
    1 chopped small white or yellow onion
    1 can black beans
    2 cans of diced tomatoes and green chilis
    (optional here depending on your taste) 1-2 minced jalapeno peppers or hot pepper of your choice
    salt to taste
    3-4 tbsp vinegar
    2 tbsp each lemon and lime juice

    enjoy with tortilla chips, or put a few spoon-fulls in your omelets!
