I know I do! It gets pretty old to eat the same thing…like just eating carrots, or just eating cherry tomatoes, or just eating kale. You’ve got to give your body a bit of everything, you know? Different ingredients provide different minerals and vitamins, so it’s always a great idea to eat new stuff. This weekend, I decided that my family really needed to get “rooted”. Not literally or figuratively, just nutritionally. 😉 I went to the grocery store and got three different types of roots: sweet potatoes, parsnips and rutabagas. My husband is a picky eater and tends to like conventional stuff…you know, “normal” foods. He is a bit conservative when it comes to food and trying new things. My job is to dress things up a bit! Not only make them look delicious, but also give them the right texture and the right flavor. I am all about that and I love it! It’s always such a fun challenge. Try my Root Roast. It’ll provide all of the above…good nutrition, good presentation, good texture and definitely good taste!
