Holiday Roasted Vegetable
Feeding your family #anticancer holiday meals just got easier! Roasted vegetables are easy peasy. I can’t wait for you to try our Holiday Roasted Vegetable Recipe!
Why These Vegetables?
When I was working to make a recipe that would taste like the holidays I wanted to select vegetables that had a lot of bang for the #anticancer buck! So let’s break them down one by one!
Thyme – a herb that is great at anti-aging. It helps protect the fat structure around cells in laymen terms. Anytime you have anti-aging properties you can count on anti-cancer not being far behind.
Butternut Squash – loaded with Vitamin C, magnesium and beta-carotene butternut squash is a powerhouse anti-cancer food!
Red Potatoes – don’t dismiss the potato because it is full of anti-stress B vitamins! They also have iron, vitamin c and more potassium than the same serving as a banana. Keep the skin on because that is where you find most of the nutrients!
Parsnips – they taste like a rustic carrot and have loads of vitamin C, potassium and load of fiber. Which only means one thing…anti-inflamatory which equals #anticancer
All in all I wanted to give you a warm and rare flavor for the holidays. It is what it is all about, special holiday flavors that you look forward to all year long. This is a dish they will wait all year for!
