Tuesday Tidbit: Buy a Bag of Pre-Cut Vegetables

You know you’re supposed to be eating more fruits and veggies, but there’s all that wash, chop and prep to contend with. Weeknights are crazy at your house. Why not pick up a bag (or box or tray) of pre-cut veg at the market this week? Companies like Dole and Mann’s have lots of options, as do supermarkets like Whole Foods – check the produce section or buy some veg from the salad bar. Another option? Frozen. Try unseasoned, unsauced frozen blends like Asian or Mediterranean: Open a bag, dump ‘em into your skillet, add low-sodium soy sauce, a dash of sesame oil for flavor and cook. Add a protein (pre-baked, seasoned tofu in Terriyaki flavor would be perfect here) and dinner.is.done.

Do you have any veggie secrets to share?
