Day 2: Parmesan Creamed Spinach
Sandra Lee’s version of this classic uses pumpkin-pie spice to pump up the flavor.
Day 4: Spicy Sweet Potato Chips
Add some heat to your weekday burger or wrap with these sweet-and-savory chips, which take only 20 minutes to prepare.
Day 5: Braised Kale with Toasted Almonds
Cruciferous vegetables (like kale) may decrease the risk for heart disease. Combined with crunchy almonds, kale makes a kicked-up side that’s perfect with almost any main.
Day 6: Artichoke Ratatouille
Think outside the classic side dish and opt for a warming vegetable ratatouille — a great sidekick to chicken or fish.
Day 7: Roasted Broccoli and Cauliflower (above)
Instead of steaming veggies, let the oven do all the work! Roasting allows the broccoli and cauliflower to caramelize, coaxing out their sweet flavor.
