Roasted Veggie Heaven


It's a perfect time to add a plethora of veggies to your diet − they are colorful, delicious, and always celebratory!

Low in fat, low in calories, no cholesterol... veggies are a win-win. And... bodies filled with veggies are better armed against cardiovascular disease, certain cancers, type 2 diabetes, obesity, high blood pressure... and they better thrive with energy, fiber, folate, vitamins, minerals, and a healthy glow. Plus these roasted veggies are easy to make and they taste really good.  

I love this Roasted Veggie Heaven recipe; you can always add any extra veggies you have around, and once roasted, it can be stored in the fridge for days. The perfect way to add veggies to your day without any hassle. And something truly delicious to look forward to − a guilty pleasure without the guilt!
