My latest post on the 21-Day Sugar Detox blog is all about roasting vegetables.
This post was inspired by a client I’m coaching who wanted to work more vegetables into her diet. I suggested roasting vegetables, which is both time-saving and delicious!
If you’re wondering how to make good use of your oven, how to make lots of vegetables with few dishes and little hands-on time, or how to work those vegetables into more of your meals, this is the post for you!

If you’re new to the 21DSD or any real-food way of eating, you have probably noticed how much time is required to prepare nutritious food, from scratch, for every meal. Even for those of us who enjoy cooking, and for whom cooking real food is a priority, the time involved is sometimes more than we really have to spare. But don’t worry! I have a solution that will help you streamline your meal prep and get more vegetables onto your plate.
The solution: roasting!
As the weather gets cooler, I find that I use my oven more often to prepare meals, especially mid-week when the flurry of activity surrounding my kids’ schedules makes dinner prep more challenging. The oven is a great way to get dinner done while I multitask—help with homework, pack lunches, do some housecleaning, or write blog posts!
Roasting also adds a layer of flavor to your vegetables by caramelizing the sugars (all natural, of course) and browning the outer edges to crispy perfection. And if you’re roasting one thing, it’s easy to add another pan and roast even more so that you have leftovers to incorporate in meals throughout the week. You’ll be saving yourself time andenergy!
Roasting vegetables is a wonderful way to get lots of vegetables ready with minimal effort and a big payoff: if they’re already cooked, it’s that much easier to work them into your meals.
