Nutrition Tip – Steaming vegetables

We all know the importance of eating lots of green vegetables on a day to day basis, but the question is often how to incorporate them into meals? One of the easiest ways to cook vegetables, that actually increases the nutrition you receive from them is by steaming them.

By gently steaming vegetables before eating them you soften the fibres, which make them easier to digest, and bring out their natural flavour and vibrance.

Green vegetables: kale, spinach, swiss chard, broccoli, zucchini, green beans, asparagus.

Try steaming any of these green vegetables, over boiling water for 3-5 minutes. You want the greens to be a nice bright colour, and still have a little crunch – this is their optimal nutritional state! 

Ideas for topping your greens:
-Fresh lemon juice
-Cracked pepper and Himalayan salt
-Extra virgin olive oil
-Crushed garlic
-Hot sauce
-Tamari
-Coconut oil

The perfect addition to any meal 🙂 Bon appetite!
