Part 2: Nonstarchy Vegetables

It should come as no surprise that Shira suggests fiber-rich, nonstarchy veggies as an essential component of a well-balanced dinner. Fiber-rich veggies support digestion, fill you up, and offer the phytonutrients and minerals the body needs to perform at its top potential.

Shira's Top Picks:

  • 10 blanched asparagus spears, seasoned with one teaspoon mayonnaise and Dijon mustard
  • Two cups green beans, lightly sautéed with extra-virgin olive oil and shallots
  • Two cups zucchini linguini with pesto
  • Two cups simple butter lettuce salad with extra-virgin olive oil, lemon juice, sea salt, and fresh herbs
