12/10/2014

Vegetables are an important and healthy side dish to include in any meal. Vitamins and nutrients are beneficial for the daily diet and many of the nutrients the body needs can be found in vegetables. Some people feel that vegetables can be bland and boring. Fortunately, there are countless mixtures of seasonings that blend seamlessly with even the blandest of vegetables and can make any meal full of flavor while also tasting delightful.

Adding Mrs. Dash Lemon Pepper Seasoning Blend to steamed vegetables is an amazing way to add flavor while avoiding salt. Anyone that is watching their sodium intake will be able to enjoy perfectly seasoned vegetables with this Lemon Pepper Blend. A small amount goes a long way when seasoning vegetables like broccoli, cabbage, and cauliflower.

Honey and cinnamon are an excellent way to add a candied taste to vegetables without the addition of sugar or artificial sweeteners. Honey has a variety of benefits, including energy enhancement and the ability to boost the immune system. Honey and cinnamon taste fantastic on carrots and other vegetables that are naturally sweet. Carrots coated with this combination resemble the taste of sweet potatoes, and are much easier to make.
