Healthy Steamed Vegetables

This is the healthiest way you can eat vegetables. When served raw, if not chewed thoroughly, vegetables can cause polyps to form on the inner tract of the colon. If boiled or canned, the vitamins are diminished. Proper steaming of your vegetables leaves the vitamins and minerals intact, while also saving your tummy lots of trouble. It's delicious, too! Multiply this recipe by the number of adult servings you's that easy! :) You can use any variety of vegetables in season, or not...even frozen vegetables. One cup [cooked weight] is one serving.
