Zip N Steam

Another nifty product we have discovered is the Ziploc Zip N Steam Bags. Since we both work we try to take as much of the guess work out of "what's for dinner" as we can. I can't count the number of times Greg is on the other end of the phone at work asking that question! We discovered these nifty little bags when we were watching The Biggest Loser and decided to give them a shot and we love them.

You can pick them up in the grocery store and prepare them a week ahead of time. We use them for steaming our veggies. We pick up 5 dinners worth of veggies at the grocery store, package them up in the bags on Sunday and pull them out and throw them in the microwave for the amount of time it says on the bag and bam in 3-5 minutes fresh steamed veggies and they haven't lost all of their nutrients. This makes one third (every meal must consist of three items - not sure why, it's just always been that way - Greg even notices when I don't have a "third") of the dinner planning a piece of cake!
