Gretchen’s post today on the PCF blog was all about figuring out how to use your market order veggies quickly before they go bad. Well, here is a great idea. Perfect side to any meat dish. You’ve got your veggies and carbs all in one. Naturally, the veggies can always vary depending on what our lovely farmer brings to us. Experiment with seasonings and have fun! This recipe is compliments of the lovely ladies over at Sweet Cheeks. If you haven’t checked out their blog, you can do so at sweetcheekshq.com. They are friends of the gym and super cool!
