One thing we love to do is re-invent classic mixed veggies in a way that is new and exciting. Re-inventing your side dishes will help you stick to your 2012 resolution of eating healthier and adding more veggies to your diet. Making small changes allow you to look forward to your next meal instead of dreading the scale. This in turn will really help you beat junk food cravings.
