Side Dishes on a Budget

A question I get asked a lot is what I eat as a side dish. Since I try and stay away from carbs, I usually stick to veggies. This can get old, fast, so here is an awesome link to some creative, easy and healthy side dishes to try.

Being a poor college kid, I need to find ways to make my food as cheap as I possibly can. The way I’ve gone about getting my veggies in is by buying them frozen or in a can. I used to cringe at this idea, but I’ve learned to doctor them up pretty well. Besides using them in recipes, I will sautĂ© them. I being with heating the pan first, then putting in a little olive oil. (Heating the pan first is an important yet often forgotten step in cooking.) After that, I will caramelize some onions and garlic, then add the frozen or canned veggie. Salt and pepper are a must, as well. I’m excited to try some of these, let me know what you think!
