Happy New Year!
Are u wanting to incorporate more vegetables into your diet but are struggling to do so?? Start roasting them- yum o yum! You can top them on a salad and drizzle an olive oil/vinegar blend over top or eat them on their own. Won't disappoint.
I cut up any and all vegetables I have- mushrooms, onion, zucchini, squash, Brussel sprouts, eggplant and peppers. Asparagus is another great one. Fill a gallon bag full of veggies, pour 1/4c of melted butter (the real stuff people) and then shake till your heart is content. Pour onto a baking sheet and bake @425 for 20ish minutes - I havent really timed it- but to your liking.
So some of you might be thinking, "butter...wha?" yes. I have been listening to and reading about paleo. It's been interesting stuff and I'm willing to give things a shot. The thinking behind this is that if you are limiting the amounts of carbs you're eating to fruits and veggies- you need healthy/natural sources of fat for your body to burn as fuel (butter, coconut oil, olive oil, meats, nuts) and let's be honest, to feel satiated. I have to say ive been loving the roasted brussels & eggplant!!
