Good afternoon,

today we prepared steamed vegetables with guacamole. I love steamed sweet potato with asparagus and broccoli. Steaming is such an amazing cooking method. Vegetables keep their nutrients and they taste delicious. Vitamins are easily destroyed when you cook with water for long periods of time, but steaming uses the steam from boiling water to cook your food.  So it not only tastes better but also provides more nutrition.

We used 20-25 min to steam asparagus and 10 min to steam sweet potato with broccoli.  We started reducing salt in our diet and replacing it with herbs such as oregano, basil and parsley. Food tastes much better and the flavour of vegetables are stronger and more  delicious.
