Veggie Sticks with Hummus or Ranch Dip: Raw veggies like carrots, celery, or bell peppers can offer a crunchy contrast and can be elevated when paired with a tasty dip.

Roasted Vegetables: Seasonal vegetables like zucchini, bell peppers, or asparagus, roasted with olive oil, salt, and pepper, can make for a healthy side.
