Healthy Side Dishes

Healthy Side Dishes

Looking for a side dish to go with your grilled chicken or fish that is both healthy and easy to prepare; then checkout Saute’ Sweets by Alexia Foods.

This new product can be found in the frozen vegetable section at most local grocery stores.  The bag contains a tasty blend of sweet potatoes, black beans, sweet corn, red bell peppers, and onions.  Just thaw the included pouch of chipotle-infused olive oil and combine with the rest of the ingredients in a skillet; then saute’ for 10 to 12 minute.  The finished product yields a very tasty side dish that delivers 7grams of fiber, 5 grams of protein, 100 percent of the daily vitamin A requirement, 20 percent vitamin C, and 10 percent iron (per serving).     Best of all one serving is only 240 calories, 1.5 grams of saturated fat, and 310 milligrams of sodium.   It has received a “thumbs up” from the Nutrition Action Healthletter
