Has to be roasted potatoes seasoned with garlic. One of my favorite foods. However, that probably is going to count as your starch, so I would have to say squash or brussal sprouts

Roasted Brussels sprouts, roasted butternut squash, roasted asparagus, okay I am not saying roasted any more ... the rest of these are roasted, too: parsnips, sweet potatoes, green beans. Just toss with a little olive oil and salt and roast for about 15 - 20 minutes at 425F. The vegetables turn out sweet and tender, delicious!

Baby steps. Persevere.

Nothing tastes as good as being thin feels.

Steamed brocolli, green beans (great tossed in olive oil and garlic on a skillet...or a light Italian dressing on the skillet)

Green Beans, asparagus's, and okra

If you go by the way side on an eating bing, just get up and start again. I always say I will be on a diet for the rest of my life because I love food. But since Spark People I can eat the right foods and not get out of control. Keep up the good work no matter what people say about you. Love yourself. Do it for yourself and no one else. This keep me going.

I typically eat raw veggies so one of my all time favorites that I can also make into a meal is spriral cut zucchini or squash. I also make a marinara or diablo sauce to put on top. I would almost say my little bit of lean protein I eat makes more of a side dish then my veggies.

Dark leafy greens, simmered in chicken broth and onions.

Wondering what everyone's favorite vegetable side dishes are. Looking for inspiration and new ideas.

My favorites are:
- yellow & green squash with chopped sweet onions, fried up with a little oil
- steamed broccoli
- sauted mushrooms
- bell peppers in all colors diced and mixed with tomatoes, onions, corn, whatever
