French Beans & Carrot Salad

I’ve finally gotten the hang of eating vegetables. I know, sounds comepletely ridiculous that I don’t eat alot of vegetables, but that’s the truth. I used to only eat vegetables in salads, and I didn’t even eat salads all the time.

However, since I’ve started using my steamer plate, I realised that steamed vegetables can be totally delicious despite the super healthly tag placed on them.

Here’s my latest experiment with steamed vegetables. FANTASTIC!!
