I used to eat very few vegetables before I started my cleaner style of eating. Now, vegetables are half of my plate at dinner. My favorite way to prepare vegetables is by roasting them.
Roasting vegetables is super easy.
- Preheat your oven to 400 F.
- Cut up whatever vegetables you like.
- Toss them with some olive oil and some seasonings. I like salt and pepper.
- Place them on a baking sheet. I like to line mine with parchment paper. Bake for about 20 minutes. If you like them crispy, broil for a couple of minutes at the end. Voila!
To make weekdays easier, I usually cut up veggies at night for the next day. To keep cost down, I buy what is in season. I am really enjoying the farmer's market right now. This is also a great way when you have random vegetables in your fridge to use, to get them consumed.
