Individual Veggie Servings

April 21, 2009

As I grew older, I discovered the need for vegetables in my diet. At first they were just an inconvenience next to the meat. Now I enjoy a nice side of veggies with my meal. As a single guy, sometimes it is hard to prepare just the right amount. They do sell “individual” portions of veggies at the grocery store, but they are so over priced. I found a very nice alternative.

You can easily buy a large size of frozen veggies for around $1.00. I then take my favorite spice and divide them into individual portions. When you are ready for some veggies, you just take them out of the freezer, add a little water and microwave them. I am sure some of you have already discovered this, but if not it is worth a try.

    You know, you can also do this with fresh veggies, too. I like to buy the large bunches of collard greens, or any other leafy greens, and I will wash them and tear them into bite sized pieces. Before we had children, I could stuff a quart-size freezer bag with greens, and that was enough for two people. I simply wrote the date on the bag and froze it until I was ready for it. Kudos for adding in those veggies into your diet!
