Couple of Live - Simple recipes

Here are a couple of recipes I came across that will make for some easy day to day healthy snacking.

Marinated Vegetables (Serves 4)

2/3 cup olive oil
1 lemon – juice only
2 tsp sea salt
5 cups coarsely chopped fresh veggies (broccoli, cauliflower, brussel sprouts, zucchini, carrots and/or green beans)

Blend olive oil, lemon juice, and salt to make a marinade. Toss with cut-up veggies. Marinate in refrigerator for 24 hours before eating. Cover real well and they will last about 3 days, good for them in between meal snacks.

Stewed Peaches (Serves 5)

4 pounds fresh peaches
Water to cover
2 tsp vanilla
Grated rind of 1 lemon

Wash peaches and halve them lengthwise, removing pits. Cut each half in three slices. Place peaches in saucepan, cover with water, and add vanilla and lemon rind. Bring to a boil, lower heat, and simmer covered for 5 minutes. Cool and refrigerate in well covered bowl. You're all set for a couple of days of healthy dessert snack.

Enjoy and Live - Simple my friends...
