Roasted Root Veggies
The holidays are coming up! That means spending time with friends and family...and of course enjoying delicious food! When I bring a dish to pass at holiday events, I look for something easy, delicious and nutritious. Roasted root veggies are one of my fall faves — and they are soooo easy to make and are sure to be a hit at your next gathering!
Root veggies act as pre-biotics, feeding your good gut bacteria and promoting a healthy digestive system. They are also a great source of fiber, helping the body to eliminate toxins.
