I like to use the ziploc zip n steam bags because they are so easy and quick to use and there is no mess to clean up. If you use one bag for two different foods make sure you do the veggies first and then the meat to avoid cross contamination. Apparently even though you're steaming the food in the microwave it keeps all of its nutrients because of the design of the bag and because the nutrients aren't being lost in boiling water or a frying pan.

    Marinated 2 4 oz. salmon fillets with 1 Tbls. olive oil, 2 tsp. spice, & 2 tsp. lemon juice & grilled. Steamed potatoes on stove, then dressed with 1 tsp. spice, 1 tsp. lemon juice & 2 tsp. olive oil. Eliminated rice, too much starch. Loved lemon & Cajun together, but changed recipe so only 3 stars - 5/10/10
