While beef may be the main attraction come dinner time, sadly, we cannot live on steak alone. And while yummy steakhouse sides like Cheesy Scalloped Potatoes, Creamed Spinach, and Wedge Salad are technically vegetables, they aren’t the healthiest choices for every night of the week.
With that in mind, we have seven sides that hit the dinner trifecta: each is delicious, good for you, and easy to make! The perfect compliments to the steak on your plates!
Mild and mini (well, smaller) compared to broccoli, broccolini has a sweeter taste and more delicate texture. It’s fast and easy to cook with ingredients you already have stocked in your kitchen and only 70 calories per serving!
The crisp, salty goodness of French fries, without all the guilt! These easy-to-make sweet potato fries are lower in fat and higher in things that are good for you, so indulge and enjoy!
Steam and serve! It couldn’t be easier to prepare and eat naturally delicious and nutritious artichokes. Once cooked, pull off the leaves, dip into a healthy vinaigrette or sauce and enjoy nature’s finger food.

This classic Southern side dish is packed with healthy fresh veggies and lima beans, along with basil for a quintessential “summer” flavor and aroma. Make it with or without bacon, but why anyone would leave out the bacon is a mystery to us…
