I have been studying to learn more about food…not dieting…healthy, clean as possible…food.  Which means we are eating more vegetables.  We have a pattern on Sundays of eating a meal with roasted veggies.  They are easy and soooo good.

I start by mixing whatever fresh veggies I have on hand.  It seems that this dish is different each week.  Yesterday, we combined broccoli, a red pepper, mushrooms, carrots, baby tomatoes, a little celery, and a little onion.

I toss them with olive oil, a dash of sea salt, a dash of pepper, Mrs. Dash Garlic and Herb flavoring, a pinch of chia seeds, and a pinch of flaxseeds.  Then I will pour them in a pan (this one has nonstick foil on it) and bake in the over at 357 degrees for 35 minutes.  If I include baby potatoes or brussel spouts then the time needs to be 45 minutes.

We ate these yesterday with some baked fish.  I will save the leftover to either take to work for lunch or even to toss with some veggie pasta for a meal early in the week.  This has become a favorite.

Learning to eat more fresh produce is something my whole family is striving for…and I am happy to say we are doing well so far!

What are your favorite ways to eat veggies??

 

Eat Healthy and Keep Smiling!
