No Veggie Left Behind


No Veggie Left Behind
Instead of focusing on one or two vegetables today I wanted to share with you my almost universal go-to preparation for veggies. How universal you ask? You can apply this technique to your brussel sprouts, eggplant, potatoes, turnips, peppers, squash, onions or whatever you have in box/on hand. I’m still on an orange kick to celebrate my tigers 🙂 so I went with carrots (baby carrots work too!) and sweet potatoes tonight, but it’ll last me the rest of the week! This technique took 45 minutes total and has prepped all of the vegetables I need for the week in a healthy, portable, and delicious way. I chose to reduce my stash a bit for dinner with this health packed veggie bowl/ salad if you would like to call it that-but this is way more exciting than your general old salad. The awesome part: you can easily throw this in a tupperware and take it to lunch/ combine it with chicken or fish for dinner/ throw them with scrambled eggs for a delish breakfast. You know I love options and possibilities, so give this method a whirl because no veggie gets left behind.
Servings: a week’s worth

Ingredients: whatever vegetable your heart desires


  • Slice veggie of choice in 1/2 inch thick rounds/ slices
  • Preheat oven to 375
  • Pour out a tbsp of oil on pan and rub vegetables in it/ on each other to get everyone coated
  • Spread out on baking sheet and season with salt, pepper, and garlic powder (I’m a big fan of garlic powder on roasted veggies!)
  • Bake for 20 mins and flip, then place back in for another 20 mins
  • Take out after a total of 40 if you’re not a fan of lightly charred- if you are (like me) leave in for another 5 mins

Veggie Bowl:

  • Go-to recipe
    • 2 parts greens, 1 part roasted veggies, 1 part carbohydrate (think rice, pasta noodles, quinoa)
    • 1 protein: fried egg/ roasted chicken/ chicken sausage/ tuna
  • Lay a big handful of lettuce at the bottom of your bowl
  • Pour a tbsp of tahini on top or dressing of choice- I love tahini (sesame seed paste) on my salads/ bowls because you don’t need a lot, it’s packed with vitamins and minerals, and tastes awesome- Mix your greens with your dressing
  • Top with veggies and protein of choice- mix it all up and dig in
