Baby Carrots and Tomatos

Another day has passed. I didn't workout today. It was my day to give my body a rest. Tomorrow I'm going to do an DVD I have with resistance bands. I love those bands--it's the only time when working out really feels like playing.

Tomorrow is going to be a busy day. I need to go shopping and pick up the supplies for this weekend's camping trip, and then I'm volunteering at a local school. Then it's back home to pack to get ready to leave town bright and early Friday.

Here's a quick snack recipe I made today. It was really simple and delicious, and it only has 235 calories.

Steamed Baby Carrots and Tomatos
9 oz. Baby Carrots
7 oz. Grape Tomatos
1/2 Tbls Butter
Garlic salt, salt, and pepper as desired.

Put everything together in a microwave safe container with a lid.
Microwave for 8 minutes.

The tomatos and carrots were surprisingly good together. Very sweet and filling. I really hate to cook, but steamed veggies are too easy.

That looks delicious! I don't have a microwave anymore, but this would work in the oven too...

i bet it would be better in the over, although i don't know how long the cook time would be.

This sounds like a good alternative to the plain raw carrots I often eat (which are, of course, getting boring). :)

PS - I like your tracking spreadsheet. I'm gonna make one too. :)

Thanks! It only took fifteen minutes or so, but I think it looks pretty. =)
