We like to bake or grill sweet potatoes as a bunch and just heat them up as needed. Personally I like to add a little spice (I use pureed chipotle with adobo sauce).

For salads I use a 50/50 blend of lettuce with spinach. The spinach adds a lot of nutrition that the lettuce does not have (I hardly consider lettuce a vegetable).

I also like Brussel sprouts cooked in a little olive oil with onions. Again we will cook up a larger batch at a time to make several servings.

While I don't do have this very often, a little ranch dressing makes a great dip to get some raw veggies in...carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, etc.
